  1. Say this: "Sorry, all contact must be done through Fiverr to protect us both. Please do not ask me to break Fiverr rules again." If they ask again then just block them. Anyone who doesn't respect that is not worth dealing with.
  2. I had an agency ask for some references of writing regarding marketing topics which show my knowledge that I had done which had an impact. I sent them my UPYOUR series of posts which are all exclusively on the forum here. I get 20-25 hours per week with this agency now (They have never used Fiverr and are my direct client). I think it depends on what they happen to stumble on when they get here but agree with others that it's unlikely they would come here. If they did, I think they would see it just wasn't a source of buyer related info.
  3. Just dropping by to say, "hi, I miss seeing you on the FF. Are you all settled in? Are you enjoying being in the city?"

      Aww, thanks Vickie. Busy busy busy unfortunately, or fortunately 🙂

      Loving life in Dublin and enjoying the change a lot. Also took on a new Marketing Agency client here which is taking around half of my work time, hence my lack of forum activity. Expecting my new housemates to move in next week and one of those is going to be an assistant of sorts, so hopefully can offload some to him and free myself up a bit to do some more posting here and elsewhere. 

      Have I missed anything?

      I don’t think you missed anything major @eoinfinnegan.
      As usually a couple of dramas here and there but nothing major.
      I think it also became pretty tough to navigate and find something interesting/useful among those increased comments and duplicated posts

  4. Since you said you miss Jon, I wanted to let you know we are organizing a welcome back party of sorts on his profile. So stop by and say hello! Yes, you can bring your pups! 

  5. Finally moving house tomorrow. 

    I had my busiest month ever last month and am still trying to finish off a few orders. Had to just pause all gigs to allow me to get some free time to move. It has been a week of 12-14 hour days and early starts. Gonna take a few days now to move and settle in I think before getting back to work.

      Did you live in a quaint little Irish town before? 

    3. ahmwritingco


      It looks so modern. I hope you won't be eavesdropping on Google's HQ, looking for some secret sauce ranking tips. 😉

      I lived in various areas in Dublin for approx 15 years then moved to one quite quaint small town/village when I started freelancing. I moved to a slightly bigger one (Kilkenny) during Covid and the opportunity to house share with two friends in this area came up so I jumped at it. They will be moving in next month. 

      It's a far more vibrant area within walking distance of everything really so yeah, really pleased. 

  6. I would imagine the most likely thing is they got an order and want to get a good review as they try to grow. So they are outsourcing to you to ensure they get that good first (or first few) review(s).
  7. The best thing about Fiverr is that anyone can join as a seller. The worst thing about Fiverr is that anyone can join as a seller. With even a low fee of $20/month as a gate, it would keep out a lot of low quality sellers, particularly those with 10-20 accounts offering the same thing. There are many of these; they do mass offers on Buyer Requests sending the same offer from all their accounts.
  8. I have work to do. I'm going to be late on an order. I'm on my way to meet friends for cocktails and to show them my new place. I've spent 18 months in various degrees of lockdown. I havent been to a bar in that time. I'm ok with not putting the customer first. To paraphrase Robin Williams "Working all night and depriving yourself of sleep may seem like or be a noble pursuit in work, but going out, meeting friends, enjoying life, this is what we work for"
  9. Ahh, explains a lot. I see so many Pros, TRS and high volume sellers who are clearly outsourcing these services to the third world. I mean when all their purchases are related to the service they offer it's kinda obvious. I would imagine that 60k is lessened by what they spend on buying the services then. Would explain why they haven't hired someone to manage things for them.
  10. Got vaccinated today.

    Was fine, feel a bit of pain and extremely tired but otherwise I am 



    All hail Mr. Gates, All hail Mr. Gates, All hail Mr. Gates

      And you have a greenish forum background! I hadn't noticed there are different ones before. Did discobot give you green because you're from the Emerald Isle ...? Ah, no, no discobot no more ... and my bg is purplish ... 

      Anyway, good to hear you're vaccinated and okay so far. 

  11. I think the TSR dude may have forgotten that correlation doesn't mean causation. He may still have become TRS while getting 10 hours of sleep, beginning the day with a run, 2 hours of yoga and a McDonald's breakfast. Truth is though, I would imagine that it may lead to a couple more sales; I know when I have done similar I have got some "We need this done now, yes we will pay the extra cost" sales from it. However, in those instances, I think a key part of it was that they wanted ME at that time and that was why they were so willing to pay the extra. Then the matter of what you want comes into play. If I was offered the chance to triple my income by doubling my workload, I would turn it down. It just isn't worthwhile being that busy. Sure, I have done it in spurts for a short period and got the rewards. But then I take time off to recover. One thing that is often under-mentioned, is the idea of time zones and target audience. For those of us living in the same time zone of most buyers, it may not occur to us that those in Asia would need to work outside their hours to be online when most businesses in the US and Europe are online. It may be an idea for those people to adjust their life schedule to be available to respond to messages quicker.
  12. Hi,

    I am getting a "You do not have permission to view this page" message when I try to view the Pride event post. Is this a "me issue" or something wrong?

    1. vickiespencer


      I was able to attend just fine. It was sad though because there were so many sellers posting things like:

      How do I increase my sells. 

      Will this webinar help be get more sales? 

      Plus links to gigs and such. 😩

    2. eoinfinnegan


      As usual...


  13. Testing a potential great use for this feature - One problem I had with the old forum was that you would often get responses from people who's opinion you may not value who then derail the thread from being a useful discussion and back to "halp me" type discussions. 

    If this type of quick post is only seen by followers of mine (mostly people I follow and who I respect), then is it possible to have a near-private discussion here with like-minded and experienced/capable sellers? Let's give it a go and discuss something here and see if it gets invaded by the masses.

    When moving house, what is your biggest peeve or greatest joy?

    (Also feel free to discuss or comment on the experiment idea too)spacer.png

      I hate everything about moving except for the fact that it gives me a chance to find all the stuff that has been missing for months or years when I clear the place out 😅  

    3. krheate


      Ooh, good question! When moving houses, my biggest pet peeve is that something always gets lost in the process 😩

      And my greatest joy is probably what @vibronx said- finding long lost things when I’m cleaning out!

      That experiment looked so satisfying lol! I actually tried something similar at home called elephant toothpaste.

    4. eoinfinnegan


      Thanks all. I've moved quite a few times before and most of the time it's been positive. Moving from a house in a country town to an apartment in the very centre of Dublin (our capital city), so it's going to be quite a change.

      I'm also going to be sharing with 2 students I know so quite an adjustment but looking forward to city life again - lockdown has only really begun to be eased here, so as you can imagine, everyone is dying to get out and enjoy the summer.

  14. Bit of news for me - just signed a lease to move back to Dublin city. When I began freelancing I moved away from the city for financial reasons but after 6 years of work, development and planning, I have taken the plunge and am moving back. Photos to follow.
