Summer is the time where business is far slower than many other times of the year. This applies to Fiverr, and most businesses. (Unless you sell vacation packages, or snow cones.)
Are you making the most from the normal summer down time? Some of your competitors ARE taking the time to rethink their offerings, you should too.
Are you upgrading your demos, reworking your gigs, looking at the most successful people in your category? Thinking about how to compete with more value, and higher prices too?
In the States, the week before/after July 4th are heavy vacation weeks, and that spills over to sellers around the world.
The whiteboard seller in India, Australia or Japan gets a high percentage of sales from the States, and if they slow down, they purchase less of my voice overs too. This applies across a huge set of categories.
If you’re gigs are slower now (the norm for most) it’s the right time to do all the things you don’t have time to do when things are far busier. The smart sellers are using this time wisely, so they can serve more clients, at better rates and increased value as the normal fall business cycle kicks into full gear later.
What are you doing to set yourself up for success as the normal fall increases arrive?
