Picfreak strikes again

Hey Fiverrtastic peeps,
      I'm back again to discuss a new gig I ordered from Picfreak. it's not often I discuss a seller 2 times in the same month but this seller has some really cool gigs. This gig is a gig where I'm made to look like a Southpark character. He did an amazing job capturing the Southpark look and I am extremely happy with the gig. If you want an original gig with tons of creativity you need to choose Picfreak. This guy is super talented and you will have the most original facebook picture compared to any of your friends. Here is the picture(s) I received from him. Be jealous!

      Picfreak I want to give you a little advice...something I forgot to do last time. (I usually give pearls of wisdom every blog). Don't waste your time exhausting yourself on Fiverr gigs too long. Know when you have to take breaks, when too many gigs is enough, and when you are experiencing freelancer burnout. Gain some good exposure, land some good clients, and jet out of here as soon as you can. Or maybe work on here less than you did before. I want to be seriously honest with you that unless you get promoted to a top rated seller or start making more than $5 per gig you need to move on to bigger and better illustration projects. You are extremely talented. If I was remotely as gifted I would be selling illustrations on Fiverr or doing illustrations for children's books. I am amazing with Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign...but i'm not a good drawing artist. I can Photoshop the hell out of things and edit the hell out of things, but you're good with illustration and cartooning...use that gift wisely. Until next time Fiverrtastic peeps have a good day.

Security matters

Hey Fiverrtastic Peeps,
It has come to my attention lately that some people on Facebook are complaining about Fiverr's security. I'm sorry but I have used Fiverr 3 yrs and never, ever had a serious problem. Allow me to give a few tidbits of advice to you people who have been hacked, think you're being hacked, or in fear of being hacked. 

(1) avoid phishing scams at all costs.

(2) don't broadcast things on the Fiverr Forum or LinkedIn. Anyone who posts something asking how much you have earned is probably suspicious and if you make a lot a week or a might get hacked. Don't be so naive...just don't answer or be vague and say something about things you bought.

(3) Don't add people you don't know on Facebook or other places. If you have only 1 common friend and you don't know the might not know them for a reason.

(4) Never give any personal info away...that's a big no no. 

(5) If you get Fiverr. 

(6) If they hacked your fiverr they might try to hack your paypal or other accounts. They will even switch the paypal to theirs.

(7) Here's a no brainer...never leave over 50-100 in your fiverr at any given time. Always deposit when you reach a large amount. Hackers will try and attack your account and if you got money they will steal it. They would sell their baby on e0bay if they could. Hackers are ruthless.

I hope this helps and if you do get hacked I hope Fiverr support helps close the account or helps you change the password and info back over. Hackers are dangerous but they can be stopped if you are smart and think like they would. Make sure you make a password not easy to guess with numbers,letters, and even characters. Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day.

Futurama illustration that will last a lifetime

Hey Fiverrtastic peeps,
You need to check out this illustration gig. This is such a cool gig. If you remember the futurama talking heads in a small tanks of will love this gig. You can now personalize yourself and make yourself immortal in a small round tank of water like on futurama. This Fiverr gig is so cool and is brought to you by the Fiverr seller Picfreak. This seller is extremely amazing and has some really cool gigs. I even ordered his Southpark gig and will post that when I recieve the drawing. This seller is very professional and I think he's going to go far on Fiverr. If you want to order an original gig from a seller who's just as animated as his gig's I suggest you order from Picfreak.Here's the picture I recieved from him.

 Let me know what you all think of it. Next time I will be talking about something else interesting. It will be about freelancing, but not exactly about Fiverr. You can be successful with Fiverr, while working for other sites too. I'll tell you how. Until next time have a Fiverrtastic day all.
