I thought about writing this post on my own blog (maybe I still will LOL) but thought it would make more sense to just write it here.
I am a voice actor and a voice over marketing coach. Since the end of last year (2017) up until now April (2018), a lot of complaining has been going on about the changes that fiverr has mad to its algorithm and how it has made things harder. Heck, even I was a level 2, got knocked back to new seller, now a level 1, back on the way to level 2
I literally what to shake some people about this. Fiverr is a platform where, FOR FREE mind you, you can offer products and services to their client base and pay a small commission to fiverr for the opportunity.
I have been telling people for months that, “you don’t own fiverr”. Besides that, running a freelance business is hard work. Those willing to do the work (a lot of it) will win. Instead of complaining about how fiverr changed the rules, learn how to work within the ecosystem and win.
I don’t look at fiverr as a platform that owes me anything. They provide an opportunity to make more money.
If this was easy every freelancer would be self-employed make 6 figures+.
If we complain less and understand that algorithms will change (this is not the last). It is up to us to adapt and realize the focus here is on the client experience first.
That is all.
