Whether for a short time, or forever, as a buyer or a seller, why did you leave Fiverr?
Personally, I just recently took a long term leave from Fiverr as a seller and will probably not be coming back for at least a few months. Why, might you ask? My sales were getting larger and more frequent than ever, and I was the busiest I’d ever been!
And that was the problem. I was so incredibly busy, that I was unable to devote any time to my gigs or my customers. I heavily utilized the message template feature not out of a wish to improve my messaging, but because I lacked the time to write personalized messages to my buyers. I had spent the previous year enhancing and ramping up my Fiverr game, but come this fall, I realized that I needed something more to pay the bills. A full-time job came my way and with that and school, I ended up with almost 3 full-time commitments.
This was, of course, absolutely impossible to maintain. I took a week long “vacation” from Fiverr over Thanksgiving, and enjoyed the ease of mind so much I extended it for a month, and another month, then indefinitely. I still was a full-time student and a full-time employee, which was crazy enough, but I finally had space to workout, do homework, and sleep.
I still use Fiverr as a buyer, but I probably won’t start Fiverr again until I’m out of school or have stopped working. I still enjoy using Fiverr and look forward to participating in the newly enhanced forums though!
So with that, what’s your story?
