  1. Congratulations and well deserved!
  2. Hi Allie I had a full time TEFL teaching job in Thailand for 3 years while I was building my Fiverr profile, making deals with long term clients, and also some other platforms, etc. It wasn’t easy as teaching is a demanding job with long hours, but it gave me stability and a fixed income while I was freelancing on the side. Last year I quit my teaching job to freelance full time and it’s been amazing! I have much more time to hit the road with my bike and travel around Thailand while still being able to work from anywhere. To answer your question, there is often a great imbalance and it can be tough, but if you accept that it is temporary with a focus on your greater goal, it’s absolutely worth it when you get there!
  3. I have a profile on another freelance platform, as well as many clients through previous work contacts, collaborations, etc. On average I would say that Fiverr is about 40% of my income. I try not to worry too much in slow periods, in fact I often celebrate them by keeping busy. I head out on hikes, do some photography, etc. In that way I am happy whether I have work or not, as I enjoy the quiet times as well as busy times.
  4. I deliver 0.6 orders per day, as I’ve completed 755 orders in about 1200 days. So basically an order every 2 days on average. I actually thought it was lower so it was interesting to actually put a number to it.
  5. With Fiverr the problem would be those secret reviews. You’re asked 2 reviews, not one. That as well. And don’t forget multiple reminders to add a tip!
  6. I think it’s not just Fiverr, but review fatigue on the whole. On a normal day, I get asked to review at least 4-5 things, and honestly it’s quite annoying. For 1. it’s time consuming as you already pointed out, and 2. there’s no incentive for me to do so. If I download an app, I get prompted to leave a review. If I book an Uber, review. If I get a delivery from Amazon, review. See a movie, eat at a restaurant, order takeout, navigate somewhere with maps, etc. ad nauseum. Review fatigue.
  7. Oh wow, that is crazy! No wonder I got so many impressions when Fiverr moved my gig to data entry.
  8. From Cape Town, South Africa but living and working from Thailand.
  9. I appreciate reading all the great advice you give to other sellers. On their behalf, thank you!
  10. Wow, looks great! I would definitely buy your gig if I needed this service.
  11. The Fiverr forum is just Facebook with less react options.
  12. Same here! And I’m like “sorry, who are you again?!”
  13. True. I just dislike these nonsense tips about being online 24/7 that people keep regurgitating, which was why my response was so curt.
  14. You need to be active when you reply to messages or an order. That’s it.
  15. Great advice! I think what you’re touching on here is the short term gains vs long term “invisible” gains, of honoring this deal and gaining lots of future goodwill. As someone who has seen this myself with so many referrals over the years, I can definitely vouch for referred customers (as well as having this steady bit of work from the client for those inevitable slow months).
  16. During the end-of-year period, buyers are less available and can be less responsive. This leads to more autocompleted orders, which can affect buyers’ satisfaction. For a better experience for both you and your buyers, we’re extending the time they have to review deliveries, from 3 to 7 days. After that time, orders will be automatically marked as completed. This change applies to all orders delivered between December 23rd, 2020, to December 31st, 2020, 23:59 UTC. Here’s to a happy and healthy 2021! The Fiverr Team
  17. Congratulations! I am sorry about your loss and health and I hope all will be better for you in 2021! I was also hoping to make 20k but I’ll be just short. image1714×574 26.8 KB
  18. Hahaha! I came to say the same thing.
  19. Congratulations! I also went full-time recently so I can relate a lot to your post. All the best for the journey ahead.
