Here Are Alicia’s Top 3 Tips To Succeed On Fiverr:
1. Talk to your sellers
Always reach out to sellers prior to choosing or starting your orders.
This allows you to make sure your expectations will be met and you and the seller are both on the same page.
2. Test your ideas
Fiverr is a great way to test ideas.
Give multiple sellers the same brief and you’ll have the option to choose from various deliveries.
3. Keep an open mind
When you work with a freelancer from a different country, you’ll see that they’ll bring this new perspective to your project. Sometimes this is exactly what’s needed to inject even more creativity to your deliveries!
