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?

  2. Fiverr sucks. I have made a logo and brand identity using one of the fiver's top sellers in 2017 for $80. $55 plus rest tip. I had informed the maker that I intend to do serious business with it and intend to trademark it beforehand. I tried for trademark the logo the application, time invested for 1.5 years, LegalZoom fees all cost me near $900 only to know by USPTO agents that the logo is not original. I go to and search the logo and it shows 5 different sites with the same logo used before and after he delivered me that logo guaranteed as an 'original' logo multiple times in final delivery. When asked the logo maker eftimov_h he said he had outsourced the logo and fiverr refunded my money. Story finished they can't help more than that. WHAT ABOUT MONEY AND TIME WASTED OF YOUR CLIENTS? TYPICAL ISRAELI BEHAVIOR BY EVEN A DUMB COMPANY FIVERR MADE IN ISRAEL.

  3. I agree that businesses who need quick turnarounds at cheap prices benefit from using services like this, in terms of cost. In relation to graphic design in particular however, you're not necessarily getting quality output. When clients frequently use these sites, they approach other freelancers or agencies outside of them, and realise that if they expect quality work, with quick turnaround time, it's going to be a greater investment. Design doesn't just look nice, it solves business problems and can have an impact on your business's ROI. For example, a considered and strategic brand identity design can inspire customer loyalty, leading to repeat or increased sales, or perhaps a web design might include a marketing strategy, leading to more conversions or increased click through rates. On the other hand, with a single logo design for instance, since the client pays little money, they're more likely to take for granted the worth of an informed logo mark to a business. By contrast, a strategically thought out brand identity system (including logo) would give the client a visual voice they can confidently use to do business under. I think you get what you pay for.
