Fiverr of the Week
Here’s a heads up for all of our wonderful Fiverr peeps! Next week we will be starting a brand new feature in which one of our beloved users will be crowned ‘Fiverr of the Week’. They will be featured in a special weekly blog post and have their Gigs celebrated on our Facebook page.
Our community is filled with so much talent, diversity, fun and creativity. It seems only right to start giving back to you guys in this way so you can have your very own fiverr minutes of fame. Also, try to keep it to yourselves, but we’re working on a prize to give away too. All will be revealed very soon. Exciting, huh?
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Do you think that you know someone worthy of the Fiverr spotlight? Leave a comment below with their username and we’ll take a long hard look at their Gigs and feedback for future consideration.
Tell Us About Yourself
Well, I think I’m best known for starting my own film festival straight out of college. I can’t say we really knew what we had gotten ourselves into back then but 5 years later ACEFEST is on MovieMaker Magazine’s Top 25 Film Festivals in the world and has quite a substantial following as well. Aside from cinema and event production, I have a strong passion for social media, marketing, web design and… hockey (go Sabres).
What Motivates You?
I’m motivated by results. When I start a new venture, I am always driven by the potential of seeing the fruits of my labor. That may come in the form of money or press or even website hits. The best part about it (and the worst) is that, for me, it’s unquenchable. It’s a constant motivation that molds and changes alongside your accomplishments.
How Has Your Fiverr Experience Been So Far?
I have met some great people. A vast majority of the users I’ve sold gigs to seem to be very excited and appreciative of what I’m offering. For instance, my ACEFEST Bronze Level Sponsorship – we were selling this to local companies for over $250 six months ago and now I’m giving it away to the general public for $5. I think the exchange of support between my festival and the buyers here on Fiverr is far more valuable than the price tag dictates. It’s an investment on our part and we are very, very happy we went down this road. In fact, we’ve even begun selling annual sponsorships and links on a few of our partner sites. In my opinion,
Fiverr is a brilliant idea that popped up at a perfect time in web history and I’m excited to be a part of its certainly vibrant future!
What is Next for You?
I recently launched a new website that caters to sports fans called BarChannels.com. It allows users to search for the best local places to watch their favorite teams. The beta is exclusively for New York City but we hope to expand nationwide in the coming months. This is completely a passion project for me – I have no intention of selling ads or generating any form of income from it, which I’m hoping my members will appreciate.
