The Fiverr Super Seller Who Bought a House: Anarchofighter

The Fiverr Super Seller Who Bought a House: Anarchofighter
Fiverr Editorial Team

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.

    Welcome to the club!!! :)
    Great tips!!!
    Congratz for your new house ;)

    I am a super seller too, you can read about it here:

    You should read my tips too! :)

    • AnarchoFighter

      Absolutely, I 100% agree with you tip about 100% satisfaction or your $5rr back.

      You said: If you make that “fear” disappear, then you’ll probably get more customers. Offering buyers a 100% guarantee is a good way to eliminate the fear that some people have when it comes to buying online. My philosophy is to make it easier on the buyer. If they don’t like the service/product that I offer, I’ll take their feedback and use it to improve the final product I deliver.

      I agree and refunds are rare, about 5% for me.

    I’ve used Anarchofighter’s gigs in the past and I must say it really is no surprise to his success. He has this canny ability to look beneath the layer of the situation, reach the true substance of the subject and bring back a message that totally aligns with human nature.

    I wish him continued success on Fiverr and it really is a blessing to find such people on Fiverr.

    What a great honor for you and congratulations!

  27. killerwig

    Wow – as a new seller this gives me a lot of hope. There’s several things on my list to save up for – but a sleep apnea machine and the honeymoon we couldn’t afford in 2008 for my wife and I are top of the list. A house is an incredible reward for your hard work and it’s amazing to think that all those $5 notes can really add up. Awesomesauce!

  28. yusufazadi

    Anarcho,

    Can you explain the top two methods you used to DRIVE TRAFFIC to your gig?

    • AnarchoFighter

      The top two? Hmmm…

      I have an email list and a skype contact list. Those are really big.
