My essence captivated in sketch


 Hey Fiverrtastic peeps,
Ok so lately I have been extremely busy with gigs. More busy than some people on here. Maybe version 2 just likes my lower rating gigs. This one seller on Fiverr named fineartpaints, see that drawing up top...that's a sample of his. He took the initiative, stepped up, and offered me a test drive to try a gig. I was floored because only a few people on Fiverr have ever done that. He told me to pick a gig, message him through my page, and he would deliver through my page or on Fiverr via message. I was skeptical and hesitant at first, but his abilities are very good. I was very impressed. These are original works of art from what it looks like  and he send certificate of authenticity with them. The other picture is to show this is not a cheap replication. I wasn't sure if it was done by hand or with photoshop. But the craftsmanship look well beyond a photoshop creation. Either way it's very good. I didn't like the middle part of the head where my brows tilt in, i'm guessing that's the crown area of the head, so i slightly edited it with the blur tool in photoshop.

Here's the images he gave:

Here is the certificate saying it's 100% original.

fineartpaints this is where my blog gets down to the nitty gritty. I want to tell you what it's going to take to be successful here on Fiverr. You need to find creative ways to sell this gig to get a steady customer base. The network is overflowing with artists and designers and in order to stand out in the crowd you need to come in hard and not give up. Ok I want to suggest to you that when you do start getting orders in please mark the estimated time up by a few days. Make sure you give yourself a break. Ok everyone so our newest Fiverrtastic seller is fineartpaints. Order his gig today. For $5 you are getting a heck of a deal.

Oh and by the way here is the edit of the image i did.
Until next time everyone hope you have a Fiverrtastic day. Have a good day. I have a few more really good blogs coming up soon so stay tuned in the next coming days.

Daria has come to Fiverr




Hey Fiverrtastic readers,
Do any of you remember the days of MTV when they still had some music and they had awesome late night programming. Two shows in particular that I remember were Daria and Beavis & Butthead. Those two shows were why teenage angst existed. Well, I have talked about many different artists on here before. Many of you may remember the many different forms I have taken as a Simpson, a zombie, a Family Guy, and many others. 


 Only on Fiverr can you find mind blowing gigs like this one.This seller here on Fiverr named shiwaart will turn your photo into a Daria like character . Yes for $5 you too can capture back a piece of your youth with a head and upper body drawing. If you want a full body drawing it's $15.  The sellers name is shiwaart and the gig has already had 19 positive reviews. They are a level one seller who has been on Fiverr 4 months. I can foresee much success with this seller and hope to work with them very soon.

here is the video to shiwaart's gig:

shiwaart I have a few suggestions to make your selling here on Fiverr that much more exciting. I think you should create other drawing gigs similar to this. You're a very talented artist and vintage cartoon gigs sell pretty well with the right advertising and promotion. Maybe you could try adding a Beavis & Butthead gig. Mike Judge's animation isn't that much different than the art of Glenn Eichler and Susie Lewis Lynn. Daria was a recurring character on Beavis & Butthead. I think your art is really good and you're going to do really well here on Fiverr. I also think that you could do well with trying out all different types of gigs and seeing which niche fits you best. I can already see art suits you well though. I hope to order off you someday soon.

Again if you want an awesome gig where ou can look like Daria you need to look no further than shiwaart on Fiverr. You will absolutely love this gig. Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day.

macot logo to make Fiverrtastic look big and strong


 Hey Fiverrtastic readers,
First I want to say I'm sorry it's taken so long to get back to you with a new blog. I want to come to you tonight to talk about a really cool mascot logo gig. I have been wanting to talk about this seller awhile now but every time I wanted to order they were extremely busy. So I took a chance, ordered and got an awesome mascot logo of the planet earth with muscles. I couldn't pull this bad boy off if I tried.The sellers name is coppe007 and this seller has some amazing gigs. I was rather impressed by the craftsmanship and quality of this sellers work. You all need to check out his mascot logo gig I will create you a unique cartoon character for $5.

here is the original he created: 




coppe007 I don't really have any pearls of wisdom for you...you're a top rated seller. I do however suggest creating new gigs every now and then and trying them out to see how well they are. You have a few good gems right now. I also thing that maybe you should extend your lead time by a few days. You were late but your work was amazing. I hope to work with you again soon.

Here is what I created for a banner thanks to his mascot. I have not uploaded it to the blog yet. Not sure if I like the background.


Oh by the way I am on the verge of launching something huge. I have a freelance website that will be like a "freelance concierge". I will allow people to order graphic design, writing, and various other services directly through me. If it's a service I don't provide I'll find it for them for a finders fee. I will be ordering from other Fiverr sellers when I need services buyers want. The site is www.custom-creationz.com. Hope everyone gets a chance to check it out. Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day all. Stay safe and have a good day.

Turned into a Family Guy

Hey Fiverrtastic peeps,
Ok so this gig is rather interesting. If there is one gig I love it is art gigs...especially avatar gigs. Ok so this seller will turn you into a Family Guy character for a mere $5 and if you want extra detail well they have other gig extras. The sellers name is melcasipit and if there is anything I love it's Family Guy and American Dad...The characters have such a look that's human yet still cartoony...unlike the Simpsons. I have ordered a Simpsons gig, a zombie gig, and a Tim Burton gig before...but this gig by melcasipit is by far unique. You need to order this gig and have the family guy experience. :) 

Check out the picture she made me below:


This seller has some unique gigs by far. melcasipit I think you should heed a little advice and add a few more gigs though. You have some nice gigs but add a few different illustration gigs like this one. I was blown away by your unique talent. Maybe you could also add videos to each gig showcasing some of your samples. Do it as a Windows Movie Maker video. I have faith you can do it. :)
Well that's it for now...until next time have a Fiverrtastic day all.

Fabs is Often Imitated and Never Duplicated

Hey Fiverrtastic readers,
Ok so if there's on thing you'll notice I'm a sucker for artistic gigs and advertising gigs. One type of advertising gig I love is sign gigs. This seller was featured back when Fiverrtastic was in it's infancy. She is a Spanish beauty with a rockin' booty, She has an amazing smile that could go on for miles. Have you guessed yet...It's Pinkkoala . That's right...I'm going to talk about Fabiola's sign gig today. She did an amazing job...I love all of her gigs. Why she's still on Fiverr and not in the movies or modeling is beyond me. She is amazing! Pinkkoala will give you the utmost service you deserve for $5 and up. Believe me $5 goes a long way, but giving here extra you can get bathing suit advertising...meeeooowww. I just needed something sexy but classy so What she sent me was awesome. I will be updating my banner soon...again. So I will be placing one of these 4 pics on there. Check all 4 of them now. 














These shots are superb and if you want shots like this just order this awesome gig from Pinkkoala. She will handle your order with precision and excellence. If you need video advertising she does that too. She has a ton of yourube vids look her vids up here dulcefabiola23. You're welcome Fabs. :) Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day everyone.

New found time will spark creativity





Hey Fiverrtastic readers,

Ok so I just wanted to tell you that while Fiverr is working out it's beta issues I want to tell you not to lose hope. You will get orders still and you will be able to work as a freelancer. All you need to do is have a little creativity and ingenuity. Here's some tips to help you get the ball rolling.

1) Never lose hope. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.

2) Make videos for your gigs. Videos get more exposure. Don't know why but people like presentations. Videos and a virtual portfolio will increase sales over 200%.

3) Update your gig. Update the keywords to 5 keywords or less. Update the images. Put up a banner.

4) Change the day count and update the info frequently no one is saying change it to an express gig but try and attract the buyer by outranking the competition.

5) Know your competition and squash them. Literally demolish their chances of getting jobs if you need to.

 6)Ask for more than $5. :Let me repeat that...ask for more than $5. If you have a tip gig refer them to the link with a message. . If you have gig extras refer them to the extras. Whatever you do try and get them to offer more. If they want a quote they want to pay you more than $5 bid at a medium or high price, but not out of their range. $4 at a time adds up if you have like 40-50 gigs at a time clearing. If you have a tip gig or gig extras get them to order them...believe me it adds up.

7) Get some help from the Fiverr Forum. It's useful for talking about Fiverr and learning about how to be a better seller. Some of the groups on Facebook are hidden gems too.

8) Just have fun and let things happen naturally. Fiverr will fix it's issues. Just find work on other sites temporarily or find ways to advertise your gig to get customers. Always have faith in your own self and services.

I am going to be writing a childrens book fairly soon and I think i'm going to be looking for an illustrator. I can't let my creativity go to waste. I know that I can make something awesome. I will let everyone know how this turns out. Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day.

Here phishy phishy phishy!



Hey Fiverrtastic readers,
Ok so tonight I want to talk about Fiverr safety. If it smells like a fish, it looks like a fish, it's probably a fish. I seen a few discussions on the Fiverr forum about how there  were more and more phishing scams and fraudulent buyers and sellers on Fiverr. I'm not going to hold your hand, give you a lollipop and tell you that Fiverr is completely innocent, especially now. Fiverr version 2 is creating more and more desperate users than before. If you get a message with a promise to meet outside of Fiverr for a larger paying job or if the person attached a document with information to contact them, avoid them at all costs! A) Why can't they order multiple gigs or multiple times and fulfill this large order on Fiverr. B) if they messaged you i'm sure they messaged 100 or 1000 others and maybe have multiple accounts. C) get all the info you can from the buyer and don't give any personal info. Send it over to support and the buyer will be removed. Do not click on any EXE's or anything that could hold a dll file. Zip files are bad if you don't know the buyer and if you extract the contents without viewing them you could get a virus. Seriously, if you get logged out of Fiverr at all after talking to someone fishy immediately close out of all the screens, scan your computer for any malware or hidden Trojan viruses, and then restart your computer and internet connection. Make sure to change your password frequently and make sure you keep an eye on your profile and make sure the email or paypal info is not edited. All you can do is be careful.


I have also been noticing that other gig sites and freelancing sites are now trying to redevelop their sites again to be like Fiverr. Why...I honestly don't know. The interface is beautiful but the search bar has more bugs than a beehive. Seriously, Fiverr need to fix this or I predict about 80% of the workers will leave....ya kinda discouraging. But ya, just want to tell all of you to not be so naive. If a buyer wants to order from you outside of Fiverr or set up work outside of Fiverr it's a scam. The price is usually in the hundreds...usually $450 or more and they target sellers with good ratings or new sellers. Just be careful. Don't let someone phish around and steal all your hard earned money and sign in info. Just be cautious about every move you make. Also keep an eye on your email. Hackers like to take computers hostage making your main email hostage to sending out links.


Lately I have been looking for other things to do with my time and realized that my blog has become very important. I have also been looking for other freelance websites. Sorry Fiverr friends but Fiverr's got issues. Until Fiverr mends it's shot foot, I guess I will just get random orders and orders from regulars. But, it's all good though I have some other ideas too. I might take up painting or write a novel. I might keep you posted...lol. Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day!

Once bitten, not shy

Hey Fiverrtastic readers, 
Ok so I ordered from an amazing seller recently and got the order yesterday. It was absolutely amazing. I was so impressed I had to blog about it as soon as I could and I had to include her in my cover page. Ok the Fiverr sellers username is peach93 and this gig is very provocative. I absolutely love it. The gig she does she sells a lot of is she will write-any-message-on-my-finger-and-sexily-bite-it. I think this gig is so original and I just had to order it. If you want to see what she gave me here is the order below. 


This gig is so cool and I really don't have much suggestions for other gigs or other ideas. Maybe if you had a few other advertising gigs or a sign gig it may give a little more exposure but this gig and your translation gigs are doing pretty good. Ok well hope to work with you again soon and have a Fiverrtastic day all. 


Top Rated Sellers are taking over!



Hey Fiverrtastic Readers,
Ok this is more of a rant and some sellers may not agree. I am not going to call out names I just want to get this off my chest. I asked awhile back if there was a chance for me to become a TRS and if not how could I fix it to where I could be considered. If you don't already know Top Rated Sellers are Editor Picked. That means someone hand picks them or you message Fiverr and they pick you based on sales and based on what your performance is. I haven't had many bad ratings or cancels based on me failing to deliver on time. If I'm not on time I message the customer and They mutually cancel or wait and I get a glowing review still. Now that Version 2 has came out Top rated and featured sellers are dominating Fiverr. Seriously, at this rate if Fiverr keeps up a lot of angry sellers will be heading over to other sites or selling on craigslist and Fiverr will be all but a faded memory in a year. 

 Here enjoy a picture of a jet skiing cat!



Ok so back to what I was saying. I can name one seller who hasn't been active in a year or more with a 93%. While one who is currently active who have percentages lower than 95% and are still Top Rated Sellers. Out of respect and privacy for their friendship/business on Fiverr I will not name them. The one person has a  90% and on one gig alone has numerous cancellations from customers due to not delivering on time on quite a few gigs. How can that person still be a Top Rated Seller. They are just barely a level 2 seller. I know my Facebook admin will not be too happy with this post, but seriously I'm not jealous or angry. I'm just concerned that Fiverr doesn't have it's priorities straight. Fiverr Support said my gigs were not original enough to be considered for review and said that I had too many negatives. Really? A lot of my negatives are customers that are no longer with Fiverr...believe me I checked. Even the guy who left a nasty review and tried writing a nasty blog thinking it would make a difference no longer has an account with Fiverr. I would say that Multiple customer cancels looks worse than negative reviews. Customer reviews can be deleted or fixed...a cancel cannot unless support literally fixes it. That would mess up analytics. Fiverr just doesn't want to see some people like myself be a Top Rated seller even though I would rake in a lot of sales. my catchy slogan, business naming, short story, and blog gigs would bring in a ton of gig extra but Fiverr would rather not see that. Sorry but that saddens me. I will blog about a seller I ordered from tonight who is part of my new blog banner. Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day!

Update, Update, UPDATE your gig




Hey Fiverrtastic readers,
Ok so lets talk a little further about the new Fiverr. I have noticed a slight incline in orders and order inquiries due to updating my gigs. If your gig has high click ratio or high impression ratio but there is no orders maybe it's time to update. even if it's just updating the tags and updating a few words or one sentence of the gig you will be good as gold. Please don't beg the Fiverr Facebook page or my Facebook page for promotion. The reason you may not be getting orders is as simple as updating or promotion. Updating is extremely important to not get outranked when there is at least 500-1000 new gigs coming out a day. You could try promoting with Facebook and twitter. Pinterest works great too surprisingly and so does YouTube. There are a lot of website ad gigs where they will promote your gig for a month or sometimes a year for only $5. I have bought radio promotion gigs, web promotion gigs, Facebook and twitter campaign gigs, and a lot of other gigs on Fiverr. Sometimes spending a little to make a lot is the name of the game! Stop hoarding your funds and spend a little...your services on Fiverr are a business after all. Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day. 
thanks,
