Being an entrepreneur often means putting the needs of others ahead of your own: your customers, your suppliers, your partners, etc. However, here at Fiverr we always put doers first—so this week’s Gig Economy news is all about you!
AND CO From Fiverr
Earlier this week, we were thrilled to announce our acquisition of AND CO, a freelancing software engineered to help entrepreneurs like you run your offline business from proposal to payment. AND CO From Fiverr is a SaaS (software as a service) application that helps freelancers make more money by taking the friction out of freelancing. Using the AND CO from Fiverr app, you can easily manage business tasks, track time, send out invoices, and accept payments, all on one platform. This new partnership will allow our members to take advantage of all these resources—completely free of charge! Read more about what this acquisition means for you, here.
One of the biggest stressors for entrepreneurs at all levels is money: is there enough? Will there be enough if business goes through a slow season? How can you earn more? Money can keep even the most successful entrepreneur up at night if you allow it to. This week we’re talking about how to put your mind at ease and gain financial security as an entrepreneur, even through the ups and downs.
Meet the Pros
Ever considered bringing your small business’ services as a Gig on Fiverr? You’re not alone! In the first episode of Season 2 of our Meet the Pros video series, we chat with Michael Borgelt, director and founder of 51 Blocks, a Denver-based digital local-search agency that handles search engine optimization (SEO), paid search (PPC), and social media with proven results in some of the most competitive industries. After working with companies like Microsoft, Volkswagen, Burger King, and American Express, he is ready to take on his next client: you!
No Reason to Say Yes?
When you’re a freelancer, especially starting out, it can be tempting to treat every job opportunity like a once-in-a-lifetime chance and say yes to everything. However, is saying yes to every job serving your needs and your business? There are times when it’s better for you and for the customer to say no. We’re exploring the when, how, and why of saying no to freelance jobs.
