Hello Fiverr Family!
I’ve been meaning to write this for a long time. Since I’ve just completed my third week here on Fiverr, I wanted to give you guys and update on how I’m doing, since it was you who had to tolerate my ranting the first week! And if you are a newbie having second thoughts, do read read on. This is definitely for YOU.
These past two weeks have been a roller coaster of emotions, and I’ve pretty much caught up with the gist of it. Since my grand opening two weeks back, followed a series of fortunate events in my life, I never imagined that I’d experience even a fraction in freelancing, of what I used to back in my business days, and boy oh boy, was I wrong!
Fiverr has definitely introduced me to a world of endless possibilities, and more. We live in an amazing time where there are a million platforms to express our talents, such as Youtube, Facebook and the likes. But to get the proper value for what you are giving back to the world is also a form of honor in itself. Fiverr ensures that, and gives a renewed enthusiasm and color to the word “Freelancing”.
But that’s not all. I realized the most essential element of Fiverr when I accidentally came across the Community option from the panels located at the top. I was introduced to a world which supplies you with endless amounts of positive energy if you know the way to harness it.
Just when I needed it, I was subject to an overwhelming amount of support and encouragement that kept me going, and I thank my lucky stars I found this wonderful community of people here in Fiverr just when I was about to give up. It is a gift, in the simplest form of the word. A gift not to be wasted. Newbies need to realize the true potential and the immense power this place has. I don’t want you to learn the hard way, so here I am, placing my words as bluntly as I can for your convenience.
Also the tips I got from this place were impressively effective. One of them that served as the eye opener was the UPYOUR Series. There are several others tips of this sort if you’re curious enough to search the forum. Apart from that, the people here have introduced me to such innovative ideas that, if followed, leave aside your FIRST Order, getting your TWENTIETH Order in a month’s time will be a walk through the breeze. I am exactly working on that as of now with my gigs.
Apart from that, these tips are not only effective and subject to Fiverr exclusively, but on various aspects of life as well. You want to do well in life? Just learn to be patient, and learn to listen to what people have to say to you. They are experienced for a reason. Learn to respect that. Learn from everything you can get your hands on, its the ultimate experience. Just learn.
I’ve completed around $70 worth of orders within my third week here at Fiverr, and am looking forward to more. If whatever little I’ve achieved interests you, listen to me. I have been in your shoes only a few weeks back, wondering where to start. Well, trust me, THIS is where you start. The Fiverr Forum is the true essence of Fiverr. Learn to make the most out of it by learning. Learn to love it. You’ll go somewhere for sure, even if it’s not just Fiverr. Trust me, I’ve been there, done that.
