The Fiverr Super Seller Who Bought a House: Anarchofighter

- On February 26, 2013
When it comes to reaping the rewards of Fiverr, you can’t argue with a man who bought a house with his Gig income.
Yes, Anarchofighter (or Anarcho as we call him) has walked the beaten path of being a buyer to becoming a really successful seller. For over a year now, Anarcho has been offering his specialized business services, from getting local media coverage to suped up copywriting. We just had to find out all about his Fiverr experience, what his top tips are.
The Transition from Buyer to Seller
I had been a buyer for a long time before I decided to start selling. Fiverr couldn’t make it easier to become a seller. The platform is simple, the site is committed to bringing in buyers and as a seller there are few decisions to make. For example, I didn’t have to think “what price should I charge” because I knew that I had to start with a $5 Gig.
My first challenge was deciding what service I was willing to offer for $5. Part of how I overcame that was to recognize the privilege in that thought. After all, almost half the world — over three billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. After deciding the problem wasn’t the money but it was my own state of mind, I made a decision to enter the process, trust the truth, and see where it would lead.
So far, Fiverr is becoming something that I can trust. This is entrepreneurship. There are no promises. What I’ve gained from Fiverr is a deeper conviction that there is opportunity in this world. As a person who fights for social justice and on the road to being a semi-retired marketer, this optimism is crucial for me.
My Tips for New Sellers
First of all, get started today if you haven’t already. Especially since you require some experience to get Levels.
Understand, when you’re new, you’ll be thrilled to get one sale a day. That’s a very special place to be. It means you can go ahead and give more than you reasonably should for $5. Why you ask? For one, what you “start doing” can end up being part of your Gig extras after you level up. But most importantly, you want to build a positive reputation and accumulate amazing feedback while the orders are FEW and you have the TIME. Once you establish a good reputation, the sales will pour in.
I’m always testing approaches and while I did focus on priming the pump when I first became a Seller, now most of my time is spent on the backend. I create or modify a Gig, contact past customers on Fiverr (just a few at a time, not to spam them) and work it so $5 orders become bigger orders.
Thank you Anarchofighter for sharing your story and your wisdom with us! Congrats on the new abode.
