Subscription Program Launch: NOW LIVE!

But now I’m wondering: how would I encorporate this into my voice over and content writing business? It’s not exactly the most “subscription friendly” niche.

I’m in exactly the same frame of mind as you are. I was pretty excited about this feature when I first got an email, but after jumping on one of the webinars and then seeing it available, I’m not convinced that I can make it work for any of our VO services. I was hoping it might be similar to a retainer service, where we’d offer a discount for clients bulk-buying some of our time each month. We’ve got some clients who would probably appreciate that. But that’s definitely not what this is.

Maybe someone might need new voice overs for their channel every week or new content for their blog/website written every week.

I agree that this would be a use case, but the service still isn’t built for that (in it’s current form at least). It’s only one order per month, which is quite a specific requirement - a YouTuber would likely want content far more frequently than that. And as far as I’m aware, it has to be an identical order value each month. I guarantee if a client placed a recurring 500 word script order from us each month, it wouldn’t take long until we get a ‘oh, hope you don’t mind but the script is 600 words this month’ message.

I like the fact that Fiverr have thought outside of the box - but I don’t think this feature has had anywhere near enough thought before it was launched. Either that, or they’re aiming it at several categories that it’s simply not built for. It’s great for a Social Media Manager - ‘pay me $250 on the 1st of each month, and I’ll manage your accounts for the month’ etc. But for anyone offering a tangible product, I just don’t get it.

Yeah, it’s a great future, but I don’t think it will fit our category very well. I’m looking forward to seeing what other VO sellers make of this, but for the moment, I’m sitting tight.

Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of a new beta test feature, Subscriptions!

Screen Shot 2021-01-25 at 10.58.39 AM

The Subscriptions feature provides you the option to either build on your existing relationships with Buyers who really value your work, or offer new Buyers your services for extended periods.

We’re in the process of rolling this out and currently only select Sellers may offer subscriptions to Buyers.

For a brief moment today, all sellers might have seen the new “subscription” column in their managed Gigs page.

If you’re currently able to see the column now, you are part of the beta program. If the column does not show, you’ll have to wait. This is a targeted rollout in order to ensure a quality experience for your Buyers. The Subscription feature eligibility is evaluated according to pre-established criteria to measure the success of the program. These are based on external and internal business metrics, alongside quality metrics.

If you’ve been selected to participate, let us know your thoughts and feedback here in the thread. If this feature is not turned on for you yet and you’re interested, also let us know.

For more information about the program, please check out the landing page and the help center article.

Very interesting! I’ve had to handle ‘subscriptions’ for regular clients in the past by sending a new custom order every week or month. It will be very nice for Fiverr to handle that for me.

What services do you offer?

Hello everyone,

Just got an email stating that I am one of the first users to have access to sell subscription-based services. Has anyone got this email as well? Is the feature available for us right now as the email implies or is it launching for us later?

as anyone got this email as well? Is t

I wish If I get the beta version 😛 Anyway, this will be helpful for the virtual assistant gig I believe. Thanks, Fiverr.

I was excited to see the invitation. But now I’m wondering: how would I encorporate this into my voice over and content writing business? It’s not exactly the most “subscription friendly” niche. I’m sure I could hook someone on the subscription, as I do have regular clients, but will it be worth the effort? I would also have to offer some sort of discount as an incentive to get onboard, meaning I might lose out on revenue with my most regular clients.

But I’m open to ideas!

The idea is cool though, I’m just not sure how I would use it… Yet.

I’ve been told eventually they plan to add “Custom Offer” Style subscriptions–so us VO sellers may have to wait for that to have it work properly with our unique gig pricing style. it would work I assume as a Max Word count per month recurring subscription, so buyers could order a 5000 word count subscription with whatever extra, like commercial license…then send you scripts throughout the month until they hit that Max. Then you mark the order as complete…

BUT you wouldn’t get paid until the delivery is accepted by the buyer. So remember that if you have a need for fast $$$.
