Fiverr & How to Become a Successful Freelancer | #AskGaryVee Episode 204

7 replies


#TIMESTAMPS:
7:19 - How can I charge more than other sellers in my market without losing revenue?

9:43 - I have a really hard time letting go of my job. I don't like it, but I've been there for so long. I have loans, 2 kids to support, a deep fear or leaving the security, and I'm not sure what it takes to make it as a solopreneur. Any tips on how to release the fear and decide whether to take the risk?

12:41 - I understand both are important, but if I only had to pick one, should I focus on content marketing or paid ads?

14:23 - As a copywriter/fiction writer, a lot of work goes uncredited or remains private to buyers. What's the best way for me to showcase my business without practical examples of my work?

18:08 - What would have been your first gig if you were a seller on Fiverr and why?

    A freelance business should be regarded as a springboard - a beginning point, not an end in itself unless you want to build a team and an agency empire. Think big, think long-term, Gary is a fantastic inspiration and one of my heroes but he does not have ALL the answers for everyone, Fiverr is one facet in the diamond.

      Couldn't agree more.

    You need to provide quality work to your buyers for good reviews.

    To make money on Fiverr you have to create awesome Gigs. Make sure that your Gigs are unique, exclusive and different so they stand out.

    If you're new on Fiverr and want to get buyers, you have to over deliver on your gigs. You have to make it worthwhile for the buyer to choose you instead of the top sellers who's had a jump start on you. The good news is that for many gigs, there's enough room for everyone, so don't be afraid to give it a try

    The first question was from me
    I'm not satisfied with their answer, though.

    Right now I'm through a freelance crisis since I've discovered my business is not scalable at all and I need to start something new.
