- Expand your vision. Having help to get it done takes away the fear of over-extending your capability. You can dream and put that dream on the workbench of available freelance services.
- Get back to basics. Realize that it doesn’t take that long if you have a clear vision. I realized that it’s more simple. I realized you get what you asks for, leading me to check my grand ideas for simplicity.
- Respect time again. Being time-bound provides a rhythm to productivity. This rhythm is key to continued output and success.
- Get community review. The community continually reviews the sellers utilizing the site. You can view time, responsiveness, and history of projects.
- Review your own business model. This may not be for everyone, but Fiverr has caused me to rethink what I do. They receive fifty cents from buyers and $1 from sellers. The value they bring is a market and a mechanism. Even more than providing know-how, market and mechanism are worth $1.50 coming and going.
I enjoyed the process so much that I created my own gig. With the time I saved by having someone else do portions of my design work, I could offer some technical assistance to others. It is fairly simple. To offer a gig, just think of what you do with ease. Price it out. List your gig in the community. Two months in, I have earned back my $40 investment plus $120.
