From Fiverr To Six Figures In 3 Years
I was living in Melbourne and I started to find that I couldn’t afford the lifestyle.
I needed to earn extra money, so my friend said go on Fiverr and writing press releases. I was in PR so I could write press releases online.
Are Fiverr Prices Too Cheap To Be Profitable
I started off very cheap, probably too cheap but I had nothing to lose. I was earning an income somewhere else and wasn’t relying on this income to live.
Just Get Those Reviews First
Fiverr is about getting reviews. Once you get more reviews from people it’s exactly like word of mouth marketing.
Sometimes it is a little bit challenging to get your first job but once you get that first job and you deliver your product to that customer and they’re really happy with it, you get a review and then it just kind of builds from there.
Guiding People Off Fiverr Towards Your Own Business
A guy at work said to me just build up your Fiverr and start bringing those clients off fiver into your own business.
I just started researching and listening to more podcasts, going into more networking events and really learning what it meant to own a business as opposed to just being on a freelancer platform, which is someone else’s business, essentially.
So I am working with more people on Fiverr and I started to tell them;
“I’m thinking of starting a business, you do need ongoing work. A lot of them did.
I bought my domain and just started slowly building up the business.
Next Step Social Media And Blogging
I just started building a social media presence, started blogging about content on my website and was getting clients from networking events and all.
It all started on fiverr and I developed the skill set from all the fiverr gigs that I did.
I was able to kind of create it from there and build it into something much bigger.
Pro Tip – You Can’t Be Everywhere At Once
I worked out that I can’t be everywhere at once. I chose one core platform and I just started being really consistent with it.
For me it actually turned out to be a podcast.
I could be really consistent with that and then I could repurpose that into a blog.
I knew if I just created a 30 minute 40 minute podcast, that core concept and those notes would get repurposed into a blog.
So in October 2019, I launched my podcast.
Before then I was doing lots of different things and it wasn’t sticking.
I couldn’t build the consistency, well I could on social media but I was all over the place doing youtube and I had a different podcast at the time and I was doing a blog.
I couldn’t necessarily feel that consistency that I wanted.
When I started my podcast for Content Queen I could then churn out so much content that I could turn my blog into captions for social media.
I could talk about those core themes on my instagram stories and in my tiktoks.
Those core messages then became content consistently across different channels.
