You may have heard of the Fiverr site and thought that offering your creative services on Fiverr was simply not worth your time. Not long ago I assumed that too. I’d known about the site for years and never considered becoming a Fiverr seller.
I tried out Fiverr last month, simply because I wanted to test the site for an article. You can read my first Fiverr article here.
Yet, right away, I enjoyed the ease of my Fiverr account controls and the time-saving scheduling tools. I also quickly recognized Fiverr as a platform for connecting with new clients.
What I learned is that some clients like the automated ordering and payment options of Fiverr.
Now, after nearly one month on Fiverr, I received this notice—
CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve just become a Level 1 Seller!
What this means, is that now that I have completed a dozen orders on the Fiverr platform, including custom services at $25 each, I have new options for offering custom orders up to $1,500.
In other words, my one month trial was successful and I will continue offering feature articles on Fiverr. Order my feature article to access additional services and custom offers. Right now I am offering a custom magazine submission service, and, a new custom service making submissions of your art to Art Consultants and Interior Designers. I’m also working on creating other custom services. If you have a need, please feel free to tell me about it! I’ll be happy to create a custom offer for you.
Offer up to 4 Gig Extras per Gig
(Extra $5, $10, $20 or $40)
Sell up to 10 Gig multiples
(In just one transaction)
Offer “Extra Fast” service
(Charge extra fee for it)
Fiverr says, “Level 1 is a big milestone, but the journey has just begun. You can now start working towards Level 2 and gain even more extensive sales tools by following these best practices. As a valued seller who reached level 1, we would love to see you share your insights and sales tips on the Fiverr Forum and across our social channels.”
This upgrade in status came just as I received a five-star positive review from one of my Fiverr clients, who also sent me feedback that his site has had enormous traffic from my feature article, and this has led to sales of paintings! This client requested I develop further services on Fiverr, specifically to meet his needs. So I was able to immediately send a custom offer at these new increased rates.
Artists can offer creative services, and also items that must be shipped to buyers on Fiverr.
