I needed a gig video (whiteboard animation), and couldn’t afford the $20-$50+ other sellers were charging.
Some had expensive prices for scripts has over 100 words, others charge a lot extra to incorporate the voice over I had already recorded on Fiverr (cost me $10, $5 for the gig, $5 for the tip).
So instead of searching level 1’s and 2’s, I decided to look at “new sellers.”
His portfolio video was perfect, his gig description was flawless, and his $10 standard package was pretty reasonable, specially since it features a 2-day delivery (other sellers take 5 days or longer).
Suffice to say, he delivered in less than 24-hours. I placed the order at 6pm and got it back at 5am.
So I gave him a $10 tip.
My point is anyone can get hired on Fiverr, even if you’re in a category where there are 985 new sellers competing with you, not to mention over 900 sellers between level 1 and TRS.
P.S. I did not message the seller before placing the order, I did not ask him if he was available. The people telling you to message sellers are WRONG. If the green button says “Proceed to Order,” that’s what you should do. Only message sellers that ask for it.
