  1. It’s hard, but Eoin’s right. You have to learn to say ‘no’ and be firm with it quite early on as a freelancer, or you’ll be completely taken advantage of. The way I’ve started handling this is to say, on the last revision I offer in my original gig description (sometimes it’s one, sometimes it’s two), ‘Hello _________. I am happy to amend the changes to your order to make sure you are completely satisfied on this occasion. However, this is the last revision, as agreed upon when you placed your order. I will be happy to carry out a further ___ revisions for an extra $ __’. It’s not always that specifically, but something similar, and it’s worked well for me so far.
  2. By no means am I an expert, but I’ve been looking into POD as a way of bringing in passive income lately and I thought I’d give you advice based on what I’ve learnt. The specs you mentioned for Amazon merch will work for other websites, too. However, some people recommend you go up to 9000px by 9000px when selling on POD sites like redbubble because it makes printing on duvets easier, and even the manipulation of the image on smaller images easier. If you just type something along the lines of “make image bigger editor” into Google, something should come up that could adapt this for you without changing the quality of the image you receive from Fiverr. I have no idea about a file you can use to add or change the design made by Fiverr though, sorry!
  3. Unfortunately that’s the downside to fiverr—you can do everything people suggest to make your gigs as good as they possibly can be, but it doesn’t guarantee an order. Like with other freelancing ventures, you might need to promote your gigs outside of Fiverr to bring in more orders.
  4. I haven’t bought anything yet, but I’m planning on doing so in the near future, once I finish my book and need a book cover. Honestly, the first thing I look at when visiting these gigs is the type of graphics they provide. I also prefer it when there’s a portfolio or reviews from people, because then you have the guarantee that the person hasn’t stolen their gig images from Google to pass off as their own. The badges, e.t.c., haven’t actually come into it at all. I’ve looked at everyone from brand new sellers to established sellers, and yeah, like I said; it’s definitely a style thing. The video thing is a good idea, too. Apparently gigs with videos sell 220% better than gigs without videos, so if you’re a seller, it’s definitely worth trying. I’ve been planning to sit down and write a script so I can film a video for each of my gigs since I started posting a couple of weeks ago, so hopefully I’ll get on with that soon. This isn’t very helpful because I’m not actually a buyer yet, but I thought I’d give my two cents anyway. I can’t wait to hear what others have to say!
