Curious about what your fellow VIDs are up to on Fiverr?

Meet Dr. Phillip Olla, a professor, researcher and CEO, on a mission to create a vision of how artificial intelligence works to better analyze complex data.

Phillip leads Audacia Bioscience - a digital startup curating the largest consolidated cannabis data repository for medical and recreational cannabis insights. The data is collected through rigorous clinical trials, cutting edge AI, and crowdsourcing.

Soon after starting his own company, Phillip became aware of their shortage of resources. Fiverr provided an opportunity to finish projects quickly and cost effectively. From logo design, illustrations, marketing strategy, social media campaigns, legal research and even caricatures for staff members, Phillip has turned to Fiverr for most of his business needs.

Here are Phillip’s top 3 tips to succeed on Fiverr:

1. Plan Ahead
When you want to build a product, you sometimes miss the minor details like ip, copyright, consistent branding, etc. To avoid this, it’s best to plan ahead, make a list of all the elements you need for your project to succeed and make sure you allocate enough time and budget for each element.

2. Find your seller
Once your plan is finalized, invest time in finding the right seller for your project. Check reviews, ask for a portfolio, or message them directly. Never book an order without contacting the seller first to make sure that you’re both on the same page. When in doubt, contact vid-concierge@fiverr.com!

3. Do a trial run
Have a large budget? Start small. Break your project up. Start with a partial version of your project, so you can test both the seller’s skills but also how you communicate with one another. If it works out, then you can feel more confident giving them more work.
