Level 2 seller on Fiverr now, awesome, right?

26 replies
Well, my absence as of late is due to the influx of activity I started to experience on Fiverr, since the start of October and I ended up promoted to Level 2...and that was when the orders just started pouring in :-) Apparently that is the deal now, people take you more seriously at Level 2 and the Top-Rated guys.


Well, I don't know who to thank, some of you guys on this board for your wisdom, as well as a udemy course teacher of "Fiverr Success Secrets". I have had to pause one gig from time to time so that I can devote adequate time and attention to a certain number of orders in a queue and not frustrate clients unnecessarily.


But whoever said if you are a good writer you will end up getting swamped? You were right!


If anyone else on this board is a Fiverr seller, at what point did you become more popular?

    Level 2 is definitely good at Fiverr...I used to spend more time there and it does help if you deliver your gigs on time and offer great customer service. Hope you reach the next level soon. Congratulations...

        That is a bad comparison. You are selling a product with hardly any further time investment. They are selling a service.

          The product could be a portal to an 'always on' support service.

          I'd go out on a limb to suggest that everyone has one of these too, because connecting directly with clients holds substantial value for the product pre-sale, establishes authority and rock solid relations to 'active' users to offer and sell more.

      Do a lot of hustling i.e use your 10 free daily custom offers and then some.

      Provide excellent customer service even to the most difficult of clients.

    Congrats!

    It took me about a month to get Level 2 on Fiverr.

    Fiverr's a great place to start if you're a freelance writer. Before I moved on to a higher paying level in the writing food chain, I made THOUSANDS off fiverr.

    It's a great place to really get your attitude and work flow right so you can produce in such a way that GETS YOUR CUSTOMERS TO COME BACK AGAIN AND AGAIN.

    Thanks all! Well, what do I attribute this too? Probably a combo of listening to experienced people and also following the advice of those that are high up on the tier.


    As for that 20%...yeah, I know some people don't like it; I have heard some people say it does not bother them because the way they see it, it is the tradeoff for a fully functioning platform and no need of a domain (I guess if someone owns a domain name, then it gives them a strong measure of authority.


    I know that some advanced sellers end up expanding their business, perhaps with their own website and domain :-)

    off-course getting levels in fiverr is very good because when the customers checks your product or your gig they wont think that you are a scam, they will believe in you and your service and place the order.

    Well done, Level 2 is very good for fiverr...now hit for Top Rated

      They're not taking 20% of the OP's earnings, actually. The OP is giving them 20% so that the OP doesn't have to deal with a bunch of stuff, like collecting money, finding clients, etc.

      The OP might be living in a country where $4 is a good chunk of money for a days work.

      But you have a point. Instead of jumping with joy, the OP should be looking to replace fiverr with something that brings better income. Even a platform like fiverr, where the prices are higher would be better.

      How about the OP finds a way to get paid $50/500-word article instead?

      Or, dare we dream, $83?

    Wow I did not know this thread is still going on...seems I started it last fall

    I have not been promoted to Top Rated status yet, I am told that that is kind of out of our hands. I have heard of people requesting to be considered, though.

    Like most platforms, it's not perfect, but I will say that fall and spring there is great activity going pn. Summer, not so much; it can be a real drag, which I finally understand now to be a season of quiet activity. Now if I had to be honest about a few things I really don't like, I'd say that the 20% commission and the techie glitches that crop up every now and then.

    When you are thinking about 5 bucks a pop, that 20% seems like a lot-and that includes extras and tips, too! While I understand that they own the domain and we do not, yeah, I can see how whoever owns the domain has the authority but...it should be more like maybe, 0 20%...like 25 cents from the $5. $1 is a bit much.

    During the summer lull, I try to work on other things so I will see Fiverr as one tool in my arsenal of income streams. I'm much more level headed now:-)

    Well done indeed, I've used Fiverr a few times and when purchasing gigs buyers do definitely take the sellers level into account, as well as the comments and average feedback, but I think being on a higher level already proves that you offer a decent service which puts you above your competition.

    Congratulations to you gwenhwyfar37. Great work! I checked also your Fiverr and you have more diversified gigs what's great. I personally think that on Fiverr is best to have product that can be delivered pretty quickly (for 4 bucks after fee) or something bigger but then with more extras (and more $).

    Ugh...I was trying to create a new thread about a rather unfortunate experience.....it's not showing up.

    I had a gig suspended and that really p&*^%$ me off.....

    Oh good...I don't know what happened to my original thread....but my reply went through.

    The gig that got suspended or "denied" was my Book Review gig....even after I tweaked it to reflect that I was compliant with the terms of service and agreed to provide reviews to people with which they were free to post on their own website, blog or social media platform. And then right there out of the blue what happens, I get notified that that gig is suspended.

    When some people are selling gray-hat stuff like "driving unlimited traffic", Facebook likes, and PR 8 backlinks, that stuff is not a little shady? Seems arbitrary and ridiculous.

    Methinks it is time I scouted some new canyons....
