Be careful what clients you choose

Hey Fiverrtastic peeps,
Today I would like to talk to you about private clients and large projects on Fiverr. Be careful how much workload you take on no matter how much money you're offered. Make sure you stay firm to your prices too. If you say 3 cents a word for a writing project with a private client do not budge from that price. On Fiverr make sure your gig descriptions are clear and make sure that your delivery time is clear. The new Fiverr will change your delivery time if you deliver late, believe me I know. If you say 10 or 12 days and you deliver in 13 or 14 it will boost your delivery time. It will say the 12 days but in the statistics it will say a higher delivery time. Also Fiverr has a new rating system so ensure you keep your customer happy with lots of contact. The more contact the better chance of getting a good rating and 5 stars. Ok so back to talking about large orders and private clients.

Ok so let me tell you about my last few experiences. I had a Craigslist client who wanted me to work on a novel for him. He had 6 other novel projects too. Ok so this client had handwritten manuscripts and the stories were really good, but he couldn't write to save his life. His use of the English language and grammar was horrendous. I was mortified for even taking on this project. I charged him $75 when I probably should have charged him $300 or even $500 or more. The guy would call me every day or every other day and he expected me to only work on his project. He came over to my house almost every day to pick up the chapters i had typed so I told him that I was done. I quit 1/4 way through the project.

There was a client on Fiverr who was a complete ass too and he expected me to do an outline for his story. I don't do outlines. So after more than a week of having this order and not finishing it because it was a large project he cancelled. I told him I don't do outlines but I would have did a rough draft or the first few pages. I guess he had worked with too many writers on Fiverr from other countries who can't write so having an American writer was a relief. He thought that he could disrespect me though and in the end he got a mutual cancellation. My best piece of advice is if you get negative energy from a client stop working with them because the stress isn't worth the money. Have a Fiverrtastic day.

Trusting a traffic gig is like...

Hey Fiverrtastic readers,
If you wonder about the title "Trusting a traffic gig is like trusting a dog to watch your food. Ok so you all know that I have been trying to become sucessful with branding my business name for a long time now. I have gone by Custom Creationz for awhile now and with each release of a new website and new provider i'm learning as little more about how to have a successful website.  I have made more of an online presence on Fiverr and on my blog than I have on my website and it's a shame. I'm here to tell you that 95% of traffic and SEO blogs are complete garbage and only care about the high dollar upsells. These people don't tell you that you can do the same thing with traffic generators, backlink softwares, and traffic sharing websites because if it was that easy you wouldn't need them. Ok i'm not even going to say who the seller on Fiverr was even though I should. The person was a Top Rated Seller, yet they gave me less than a top rated experience. I should have just gave them $5 to do nothing. They gave me a BS cookie cutter pdf thanking me for the order and saying that in order to give me better service it would cost a minimum of (2) $100 gig extras. If I had $200 to shell out on SEO services it sure wouldn't be on Fiverr. For anyone who's curious this is my site

 Ok supposedly this person was supposed to increase my ranking by building 40,000 blog backlinks and 10,000 traffic hits. I seen no sign of traffic and if I did a backlink search, the backlinks are probably non existent. So that is why I posted a thief image, I may as well given my money away. I'm refusing to leave a review at all because this will bug the seller even more. I have gotten almost 500 hits on my website and almost 1000 on this blog just in the past week. I did it myself without the help of some person who claims to be an SEO professional. Let's just say this much, I am not happy with the way some of the people on Fiverr are conducting business. If I wanted to work with or order from sellers who have multiple people selling on one account I would work for Freelancer. I have a Freelancer account and all the people with small business accounts get all the orders. The people working for themselves get no orders. The larger accounts pay their freelancers 10% -20% of what they are really worth and keep the profit. I see jobs all the time where people are willing to pay $1.50 for 500 words.  Ok enough ranting, I just want to tell all of you that you don't need to order off a Fiverr seller to do web-listings and to get basic traffic and backlinks. Are you sitting close to the screen...CLOSER.  

Ok here's the secrets you've been waiting for. These are the links you can use to help build up traffic. These are unique views, but they all show up from the same centralized server because that's where the websites are from. So when you look at your statistics it will say "300" from this site. ok here's the sites I found that work the best.

Well I hope this was able to help you out and I hope to see some comments about this. Also the best way to guarantee to get proper SEO and SERPS ranking is to order services from a professional. If anyone is interested in guest blogging about a gig please contact me. Have a Fiverrtastic day.

Nothing can stop my stride

Hey Fiverrtastic Peeps,
I haven't written a blog lately and I'm very sorry about that. I have been very busy with working on a ton of different Fiverr projects and a few different clients from Craigslist. I'm currently working on a novel project with a client from Craigslist. I love working with clients on Fiverr, but the work is extremely stressful. I also like working with clients on Craigslist too and they sometimes pay well, but it's hard work. Ok, so what else have I been up to lately. Well, I started a new freelance outsourcing website and I'm trying to get SEO work done. If anyone knows anyone whose affordable let me know. I hired someone on Fiverr and for $5 they have a good package. They care more about upselling their $100 gig extras though. I will tell you all right now I only buy gig extras that are worth it. I don't have $200 to drop down on my website right now and I honestly am not going to shell out that type of money. I know that this seller is running a business with multiple people working on the same account, so they have to sell as many gigs as possible and upsell as many gig extras as possible. 

Ok so here is some gigs I have seen recently that I like:

I hope to write a new blog for you really soon. If you all have any suggestions on who to put in the blog leave a comment here or on my Facebook Page. I hope to hear from you all soon. Oh by the way if you're a freelancer who works for Fiverr or works from home check out my site. If you're a client looking to outsource multiple freelancers or looking for one freelancer check out my site. I hope to talk to you all again soon and catch you on the flipside. This is Josh signing out.
