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.

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.

How Will The Upcoming Facebook Changes Impact Your Facebook Page ?

Facebook– that ever-changing social media platform– has announced that it’s ready to make more overall changes, admitting that this scheduled new formatting could negatively affect your Page’s reach.

So, if you created your artist page, or small business page on Facebook, and have even paid for Facebook ads that brought “Likes” to your page, will all that fade into the background along with your page? Has developing your Facebook page been worthwhile for your business? Or is it time to shift your focus to new ways of getting visibility?

For some time, I’ve advised artists that Facebook ads bring “Likes” not sales. When you pay for any ad it will drive some traffic. But as soon as you stop paying for those ads, they disappears and are forgotten.

Feature articles on Artist Marketing Resources are better than paid ads because our feature articles become a permanent part of Google search engine and other search engine results. Artist Marketing Resources and our friends and associates work to bring you visibility.

Since we launched on Feb 3, 2009,  Artist Marketing Resources has published articles featuring artists and art events. We’ve had people find and continue to comment on our articles that we published years ago!

Why do a feature blog article with us? Feature artist articles are multipurpose. Our published articles contain multiple large images of your art and multiple links–such as to your website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and blog. (Ads–such as on Facebook– tend to have one link and one tiny image, one purpose and one result). Our feature articles are much more versatile, and may be crafted to feature an event, such as exhibition of your art, or may offer new available work such a new print edition for purchase on your site. Or the article may share and illustrate your amazing art-making techniques or simply ask for followers for your blog or Twitter account and others.

Additional Value:  After we publish your article, we tweet the article link with attached image across Twitter via our @TransArtGuide @Artozon @Transmediartist and others we admin. We include appropriate hashtags, such as: #painting #portrait #exhibition#drawing  #fineartphotography and many others. We also use any appropriate Twitter trending hashtags to place your art in front of a new audience. For instance, yesterday we used the newly trending hashtag #handmadehour on our tweets for portrait commissions and portrait drawings.

We also share your feature artist articles on multiple Facebook pages that we admin. We share all our articles on Google+ and in Google art groups, and post article links to Tumblr blogs and add multiple images, with article link on each, to Pinterest. We post your feature articles as a new discussions in our Artist Marketing Resources LinkedIn Group and in appropriate art collector groups.

We offer many options to suit your needs–

What I learned From Offering Article Marketing Services to Artists on Fiverr Last Week

Screen Shot 2015-04-19 at 7.30.10 PM

Last week, after being contacted by someone who claims to earn $4000 a month on Fiverr working only 8 total hours per week, I decided to put Fiverr to the test for myself. I put out the word that, in order to better understand the site, I would offer a service on Fiverr for a limited time–read my article here— offering feature articles for $5.

Screen Shot 2015-04-11 at 3.18.43 PM

I had five orders placed via Fiverr my first week on the platform. What a relief that there weren’t more. If twenty had ordered this service that first week I would have been overwhelmed, especially since I had set up delivery at 7 days maximum per order. I also offered an extra service of magazine submissions for $20.

Four of my Fiverr orders came from artists I already knew. Also, one additional new person has shown interest in my services on Fiverr.  So that out of 6 interactions, two are new, or about one third. So that I’ve begun to think of Fiverr as a fun and interesting platform for making new business connections

I’ve since added another Fiverr service that will be much easier for me to quickly fill-–I will add your website link to my site blog roll for $5 on #Fiverr click here.

I must admit that I didn’t expect to like Fiverr as much as I do! Things happen fast on Fiverr and it’s super easy to use the Fiverr control panel on my account track orders. Plus Fiverr is automated create and flag reminders on your personal TO DO list, making managing your orders a minimal task.

Consider using Fiverr services as an alternative to paying for Facebook Likes and Google ads to get click-throughs to your site–

On Fiverr its easy for artists to order useful services–for instance, if an artist has an exhibition announcement that they want published and promoted on social media, they simply place the $5 order via my Fiverr feature article offer, upload their image or images and include a link to their site plus some suggested text or focus for the article.

Then the clock starts ticking. I have 7 days to fulfill the order–that is, to put together and publish the article. Once it is published, I complete the order via Fiverr by sending the link to the client. That way there is accountability on both sides–if a client who places an order is demanding too much, then I can offer a custom order at a higher fee or simply cancel the order. This also an easy way for artists to manage their marketing and fees paid for tax purposes.

Those controls and options within Fiverr are what make the site most useful. Otherwise, working for $5 has little appeal!  But with a volume of orders and higher priced extras and custom service options, all managed from the Fiverr site, I do see the potential for at least supplementing one’s income.

*

Although the majority of my first Fiverr orders came from familiar faces, I now have their positive reviews on Fiverr profile.*If you are thinking of trying Fiverr to suppliment your income, try offering several simple services rather than just one or two. You can also offer physical items that require shipping. Fiverr is set up to handle all that too.Whatever you are offering–services or products–add extras to give buyers more choices and so you can make more money. For instance, if a client needs the service completed quickly, you can add the optional service of fast delivery for an additional fee. Fiverr makes it all super easy to set up–so that those options are automated.*

Why do a feature blog article with us? Published blog articles are better than paid ads because our articles become a permanent part of Google and other search engine search results. When you pay for *likes* and ads,  your exposure stops when you stop paying.

Additional Value:  After we publish your article, we tweet the article across 5 twitter ACCOUNTS. We share your article on multiple Facebook pages that we admin, share it on Google+ and in Google art groups, post to our Tumblr blog and share multiple images with links on Pinterest and post as a discussion in our Artist Marketing Resources LinkedIn Group

For a limited time we are offering our $5 Feature Article Plan on the platform Fiverr –take a look here.

And our additional new service-–I will add your website link to my site blog roll for $5 on #Fiverr click here.

Part of the research we do for our Artist Marketing Resources articles includes trying out various sales platforms for ourselves. Generally we are interested in online galleries, artist print sales sites, art licensing platforms, art magazines and art apps.

We’ve known about Fiverr  for a few years now, and after hearing of creative people making as much as $47,000 per year on the Fiverr site from sales of their creative services, we decided to give it a try for ourselves. So we’re taking it for a test drive–perhaps rather skeptically at first!

So for a limited time, we have a special offer on Fiverr! Click here to feature your art in article and social media for $5 on Fiverr.
