  1. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello and give a warm welcome. This is indeed a great community.
  2. @sawonarafin, welcome! I’m also a new seller here with one order under my belt. I’m getting a ton of super-valuable information here in the forums. It’s a great community. Good luck to you.
  3. @zeus777 Thank you 🙂! And hello to you. Yes, one order so far and it’s got me hungry for more!
  4. What top rated seller was giving that advice?? That’s a total noob move. No serious seller that knows what he’s doing would dream of offering unlimited revisions. I’m so glad I’m finding that out @visualstudios! It was from Alex Fasulo.
  5. Hi! This depends on what your offering. I started like this but I didn’t have much competition. Your in a very saturated market and have a ton of competition and keeping a level of prices (not 5 dollars) will not only get you more money but will also get you better customers. You can then increase them bit by bit , that worked for me 🙂 Makes sense. Thank you so much!
  6. Wow, I love hearing that writing has done so much for you. I truly can’t live without writing. Hyperbole, yes, but you get it. 😉 I’m really amping things up now because my hope, like everyone else’s, is to get out of the 9-5 grind that is really messing with my mental health…you know, that, the state of the country, civil unrest, etc. Thank you again for the tips. This has been invaluable.
  7. Okay, first, THANK YOU. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your honest input. I feel like I’m flying blind here. I’ve never offered my work in this manner. Your advice on my editing gig makes a lot of sense. My thought process was “how much can I offer that involves writing?” Thank you for breaking that down. Everywhere I looked I read, “don’t charge too much when you’re brand new. Start at $5 and then when you get orders, increase your price.” And I mean everywhere. I like your math, however, and again, makes perfect sense. Thanks for pointing this out one especially. Again, in trying to consume everything I could regarding this venture, I read the blog of a top-rated seller who said that this would bring in clients. But you’ve scared me. 😀 so that perk is coming down for sure. This one I was really unsure of. I didn’t know how to execute this. Do I upload a pdf? Do I connect to a story I’ve written? Taking a screenshot is a great idea. So I’m really giving an excerpt of my writing, not a document to peruse, is that what you’re saying? I’m really grateful that you took the time to look at my profile/gigs and craft such a thoughtful critique. Thank you!
  8. Hello! Welcome! I’m fairly new myself. Good luck! 😃
  9. Check this out: Don’t do it! … You Have Been Warned! for a further explanation as to what can happen. Suggest you use the word article instead of essay. To clarify, I didn’t mean “who cares” as in “I don’t care, I’m doing it anyway,” I meant “Who cares if they do it, I’m changing mine!” Good suggestion. Thank you
  10. Thank you! I thought I’d seen that on others’ gigs but who cares? Removing it now. Do you think I should clarify essays since they don’t necessarily have to be academic in nature. For instance, what if I said, narrative essays?
  11. Wow, thank you so much! Being a total novice I keep looking at others’ gigs who offer the same services to see how in line I am with their prices, etc. I really appreciate the feedback.
  12. Hi everyone. I’m a writer and I’m new to Fiverr. I’ve had one order so far and I feel as though I’ve read every blog, article, etc on how to create a great profile and gig. I took what I learned and did my best but would love to have an honest critique of my profile/gigs. My profile link is in my forum profile. Thanks in advance to anyone who is willing.
  13. Hi Nadia! I’m a total newbie so even though you’ve been away for a bit, you’re more seasoned than I am. 😀 You’re right, it can be a lonely journey as I’m discovering myself but that’s why I’m here.
