1. There are a few icons that you can use for thank-you, good, yes, haha, confused, etc. so spamming the forum with those words is unnecessary, unwarranted, and rude. 

it is funny to me that a non-trivial portion of your thoughtfully conceived, and well written post is about not wasting time on non-value-added activities, such as trying to boost your forum rank by replying "thank you" or "congrats" to ever post, and yet that is exactly what most of the comments I see so far are.  

Fellow forum members, I speak for myself only, but stop wasting time, and cluttering up the forums, with comments and questions which do not add value to the conversation.

6. Last tip, you're not an employee but a freelancer, an independent contractor, so be like one. 

 

Everyone should read this 10 times per day.  If you are on Fiverr, you are a small business owner.  End of story, full stop.  Treat it like a business.  This means you have to learn your business, and part of that is learning how to market and sell.

This gets me discombobulated so often. 

I never want to sound judgemental but it seems that most of us (talking about sellers) fail because we don't care about what's being said and advised! 

I have purchased from a few sellers over here but did never use a buyer request. I now can understand how horrible it could be for buyers to receive absolutely irrelevant proposals. Most of the sellers wouldn't even bother to read the buyer request before shooting a response. 

Proof: this post.

What is this I see, a relatively new seller giving advice on the forum that is well written, correct, and not copy pasted? What?? That's it, the world is coming to an end. This is a very bad omen, surely we're nearing the end times.

Haha, I'm sure yer not being sarcastic, at least about my post or writing ability! 

Though, you're right. Sanity, comprehension, coherence, and clarity are rare entities these days. 

 

Also, I use the 'learning by doing' technique to speed up my race and get into the top few people that know how to run their business.

1St congress for your success. I'm a beginner at fiver . For beginners it is really tuff to find out what they do what they not do. which is important for him which is not. So I appreciate with you that publish one gig is not enough for get buyer. So we need to proper education about freelancing I think.
