FIVERR UPDATE & LANCE TAMASHIRO

So some of you have been wondering about my Fiverr status and how it’s been working for me.

I have been on Fiverr since March 2016.  I have given it about a solid 6 months (nothing but positive reviews), and I’ll have to say that I break about even each month on net payments I receive.  It’s not the most remarkable thing in the world, but it’s nice if you want to have some side money coming in, extra spending cash here and there.  However there still could be a change, if for some reason I created a huge amount of traffic EACH DAY for myself and I had at least 10-15 orders a day, I could easily live off FIVERR.  But as of right now, I only ever receive 1-3 orders each day, and it’s nice to have that extra cash at the end of the month.

But it’s nothing to celebrate over!  I’ll stick with it though and see what happens!

In terms of Bill Dewees and Lance Tamashiro trying to push “FIVERR” off on people as some ‘make REAL money’ doing voice overs scheme, it’s false.  Don’t buy into it voice over friends and colleagues.  Getting rich on Fiverr is just not gonna happen unless you’re the pick of the litter.  Lance got lucky on Fiverr and probably got noticed by the right person and they make him FEATURED a ton, which earns him a lot of orders and money… but not EVERYONE can be featured like that… they pick and choose those people personally, so you just have to be lucky for that kind of attention… he happened to get it, and then he and Bill just made up a plan to give aspiring voice talents hope… and for them to order into their SALES PITCH and make money off of it…

Don’t fall for it guys… slick marketing, slick sales plans is all it is.  It’s just a neat way for Bill Dewees and Lance to earn extra cash while providing people with motivation… you’ll earn money, but not a lot.  Not like Lance did out of pure luck.

FIVERR | Month 3 | LEVEL 2 Seller | VoiceOverFun

So I am just ending my 3rd month on Fiverr.

This month I broke even to the 2nd month.  I saw not much difference with the entire month having earned the Level 2 badge at the beginning of the month.
I’m not sure how Fiverr works.  Whether they set your gigs up to get more exposure, but there seems to be a trend with successful talents that work on the platform.  They get successful after working on the platform for a few months, and then it’s like Fiverr unlocks something for that talent because at some point they always start receiving a ton of orders, and thus start their REAL living on the Fiverr website as a contractor.

It would be a really awesome thing to happen for me, as it would give me perfect time to work on both Fiverr and my youtube channel with no hassle.  I usually spend half the day working with Fiverr and other VO projects, getting my orders done, and then the second half of the day is spent engaging with folks on youtube and livestreaming video games.

We’ll see how all this pans out in the coming months.

FIVERR UPDATE: MONTH 1 (Happy Easter)

Okay, so this is my first month on Fiverr.

I will give you my experience and thoughts.
A lot of people on their first month of Fiverr is usually when they will give up and forfeit the website because making their first couple of orders is TOUGH. That’s not a lie.. making my first 3-5 orders was no easy task and took just about half the month. Why is this?

Well, Fiverr works off rank, and SOCIAL status. So if you have no orders and no reviews for people to look at, you are basically a nobody to everyone.
THANKFULLY, I think the power of my youtube channel gave me most of my kickoff leverage in proving my worth to people.

I think the first week, I had like 2 orders.. the second week, I had like 1 order. Very depressing. And I had to market HEAVILY just for those 3 orders.
The following week after that I kept marketing and marketing my ass off.. made 3 more orders.
Around 3 days ago (here at the end of the month) I experienced what it’s like to be ‘noticed’ a little bit on Fiverr. My rank must have went up because all of a sudden orders started coming in and in ONE day I did about 6 orders (that’s SIX voice over projects), and I think I made around $60. Mind you, this is WITHOUT being a Level 1 or Level 2 seller.

Keep in mind I do about 125 words for $5, and the increment of price grows as the word count grows. So 126 – 250 would be $10. So we’re talking about a voice over session that takes about 5-15 minutes of work for each project.

You say, “SIX VOICE OVERS for $60..!??! That’s not much money! You’re stupid”, BARE WITH ME…

For those that don’t know, if you sell well on Fiverr and grow your rank (rank is determined by how much money you’re making on orders, how quickly you respond to people, how quickly you deliver your work, and your reviews). You reach Level 1… and then Level 2, and if you are FANTASTIC, you’ll get the highest rank of “Top Seller” for which Fiverr staff hand pick their top sellers personally.

So, I’m quite impressed.. I made $60 with basically ‘no status’ perks, and no seniority, seeing as how I am brand new.

Why is this fascinating to me?? Because I’m looking at the future. Most voice talents and actors audition for work, and wait around for that next $800 gig. How many times did I audition on Fiverr? NONE… the orders came to me, as if I were a store front selling merchandise. If this grew to about $200 a day (my goal right now), then that’s nothing to sneeze at. I’d be doing a hell of a lot better than I was auditioning 20 times a day for projects I’d never get, and potentially wasted days.. Not to mention that once you start gaining your “Levels” the tools available to you for UPSELLING become available to you, increasing the amount of money you can make on your gigs. I’m very optimistic.

I won’t talk too much on it right now… lets see what Month 2 will bring.
