Hello and welcome to another edition of the MabsArts blog. Today I will be sharing my experience with you on how I became a seller on Fiverr, made a killing (for a while) and then almost got killed (not really) by a Hurricane. Let’s dive right in…
This blogpost is part of a series.
It took a while, a lot of trial and error and help from a lot of people, but I managed to go back to at least half the income I was making in the good ol’ days.
Now a days I make most of my income locally, helping out other artists, or businesses with their illustration and graphic design needs.
Fiverr has become a secondary income stream for me. I am still yet to see if I will be able to go back to my former glory, but right now I’m sitting at around $200 a month (still way more than what I was making that first year) with 5-10 orders a week. Fiverr Level One status, and all the knowledge of a successful/failed/successful again freelance artist.
It’s been quite a journey, and whilst there are a lot of things I wish I had done differently, I know that things happen for a reason and I feel that I had to go through all of that just to understand what I didn’t even know, I didn’t understand.
It has been a process of trying and failing, for a long time, but all this knowledge is paying off. Every day I am getting more views, more attention, and more comments online, not only on Fiverr but across all social media.
There is light at the end of the tunnel.
