The Price For Success

Jan 09, 2020

I'll never forget the first year of my business. It was downright painful. 

I don't mean listening to my work was painful, although it might have been, but physically, it was painful. 

Every single day, I would get up at 6 am, go to work, come home around 6 pm, pick up the kids, get dinner ready, spend time with them, put them to bed, spend a few moments with my wife, and put her to bed around 10 pm.

After she got in bed, I would go outside and get my super-sized army style duffle bag and drag it into the house, being as quiet as possible, so I didn't wake the kids.

Once I got to the office space, which happened to be on the other side of my little dwelling, out would come the PVC pipes and packing blankets. 

I constructed my PVC pipe Hobo Fort, as I called it, based on a number code marked on each tube so I would remember where it all went. After it was up, I had to move the desk and computer so it would fit together and finally attach the...

How To Deal With Unruly Customers On Fiverr

Dec 17, 2019

There is no doubt; I love Fiverr. It has changed my life and helps me make a six-figure income in voice-over each year. 

But there is another side to Fiverr that gets on my nerves THE UNRULY CUSTOMER.

I was talking to a friend earlier today, and they let me know that a customer had tried to take them on an "I don't need broadcast rights, and I will only pay you $5" ride, and after trying to talk it through with the customer, they became so rude, that she blocked them.

Then, the customer created a new account, and still ordered from her, probably in an attempt to give her a bad review.

This happens on Fiverr often. 

However, the other day, I was working on "Freelancer," and I was taken for a scam with someone from China trying to sell me on a business deal, after claiming they needed a voice-over. 

Unfortunately, this sort of thing is the price we pay for doing business online. There are scammers around the corner, trying to get your money or worse, your personal...

3 Pro Tips For Setting Up Your Fiverr Gig

Mar 06, 2019
 

Having coached many voice actors getting started on Fiverr, and even veterans, the greatest issue they have is with the setup of their gig.

In this post, I talk about 3 Pro Tips for setting up your Fiverr Gig right.

Pro Fiverr Tip #1: Title

Setting up your title correctly is imperative. Think of your title as what someone would type in the search box.

If you try to shove too many words (keywords) into your title, it will sound unnatural and won't cast you in a professional light.

Your title should include a possible searched phrase like ... "I Will Record An American Female Voice Over".  

Straight to the point and a possible customer might type in "American Female Voice Over".

Pro Fiverr Tip #2: Description

The next part of your Fiverr gig setup is your description.

Using your title, you want to answer the following questions in your description box:

  1. Who
  2. What
  3. When
  4. Where
  5. How

These questions will give you a direction to go. If you answer...
