Learn how graphic designer Danilo, aka logo_business, maintains a 5-star rating with more than 5,000 reviews.

Professional graphic designer Danilo, aka logo_business, lives in a gorgeous city in southern Italy and has delivered thousands of logos to Fiverr buyers. Even more impressive is his maintenance of a 5-star rating on more than 5,000 reviews. How’d he find such success on Fiverr? Here’s Danilo’s Fiverr story:

My Fiverr Story

Six years ago I was looking online for ways to increase my income, and for new inspiration for my local designs. I was a frequent user of freelance sites and when a friend suggested Fiverr, it was love at first sight. I immediately understood how much potential it had. Signing up was straightforward, and my first Gig was up and running in less than an hour.

In that first Gig I focused on logo design only but slowly, over time, I added new services like stationary and social media designs, such as timelines covers, corporate identity packages, business cards, letterhead, and envelopes.

Getting It Done Right

My Fiverr business grew exponentially once I became a Top Rated Seller. I suddenly found more than 20 new orders in my queue daily and I had to develop a more efficient way to work: that was overwhelming but I tried to satisfy every customer and in 2014 my Fiverr business evolved into a full-time job! Thanks to the quality of my jobs and my customer’s feedback, I was eligible to also become a Super Seller and Fiverr Ambassador.

Packages: Quality over Quantity

Today, thanks to packages, I changed my work philosophy and I’m focusing on quality over quantity, receiving less orders but with a much bigger overall value.

I love to take risks and when Fiverr introduced packages in 2016 I switched immediately. The risk was to lose several repeated customers but the reality has been absolutely different: new, big-budget customers were ordering my Gigs using the new packages system that I loved from the first moment. Old customers keep ordering with new prices because they were happy of my previous work. In less than a year I earned the best incomes ever, and surpassed my revenue goal two months before the end of the year. It was stunning how a $5 basic Gig transformed into a $55 Gig, giving more value to the customers and increasing my earnings 10x overnight. My most ordered package is now my Premium Package, which is the most expensive. This change is only achievable when you have true passion, dedication, and awareness of your skills. I then worked on my orders in a much more relaxed way, focused, charged and with a clear mind. I created some of my best logos ever and managed my personal time in the best way of ever, too. Family emergencies, unexpected moments of anger, joy, fun, holidays, personal culture, nutrition, sports… everything in the best way and with the right timing. This incredible freelance platform named Fiverr has changed my life in ways I couldn’t imagine before.

What It Takes

For your Gigs to be successful on Fiverr, you should focus on your areas of expertise and you should feel passionate about what you are doing. Just as with offline businesses, if you think of Fiverr like your job, you’ll do it better.

I think my effectiveness on Fiverr is based on the fact that I’m a professional graphic designer and I deliver original and unique works that aren’t copied from others. You can always take inspiration from the work of others, but don’t just copy. You must add your personal touch. It’s also important to be flexible and maintain friendly communication with buyers. I make sure I’m always available to my clients and I’m open to a few revisions. On-time delivery, polite and timely communication, and a right revision management have great importance too.

Inspiration

Fiverr has had a great impact on my professional life, both financially and creatively. I am inspired by my buyers from around the world and by browsing all the Fiverr businesses. The different languages, different styles people have, and all the services I’ve never seen before—it all makes me more creative.

My Fiverr experience has been great so far, and I believe it will continue to improve.

Future Goals

In 2017 I set a new revenue goal and I’m ready again, and much more than before, to accept another personal challenge, continuing to improve my services (and consequently improving Fiverr as well) in the best way possible.

In hope my story inspires other graphic designers: Fiverr can truly change your life!
