Let’s continue the eight weeks fiverr training series with another great topic- self development. If you’ve been following the training from the beginning, you should have read about how to identify your interest on Fiverr and how to do proper gig research. However, if you’re just following for the first time, do yourself a favor by reading the previous series. Like i said in one of my past updates, advanced fiverr training goes beyond account registration and gig creation. It is a real and prolific business for those who know what they’re doing.
Although i am doing pretty fine on Fiverr, however some colleagues are earning some magic figures in 30 days, which many people won’t earn in three years. If you’re one of the people who think that they can’t earn more than five dollars per project on fiverr, you’re already missing the real deal. Personally, my average selling price is $34.87. Earning more $$$ per project is 100 percent possible if you know your onions. This short piece might not reveal everything to you, however if you can use your intuition properly, you’ll be able to scale up within the shortest possible time. Enough of the preamble, let’s get to work.
Self Development – On What?
“Self development on your interest”. I’m not a motivational speaker, and i don’t plan to be one. However, when it comes to sharing my experience about digital marketing, i have plenty things to talk about from blogging to affiliate marketing to social media marketing, etc.
When it comes to self development, you are not restricted to one particular thing, you need to work on different aspect of your fiverr business. You need to look at your competitors and learn from them. Some of the ways you can identify the areas that need the most attention are:
- Reasons for modification request. If you’ve been working on Fiverr and some of your clients have been requesting for modification, you need to find a way to solve the problem. For instance, if you’re a writer, your clients might ask for modifications due to grammatical errors.
- Additional features in your competitors gig. Regular spy on competitors gig can expose some opportunities to you. In some cases, competitors have additional features that entice clients to their service.
- From blogs. You can also discover more by reading blogs that are related to your niche.
When you develop yourself, you don’t only master your niche but also becomes authority. This is important as it will help you scale up your fiverr business and also advance your digital marketing career.
It is really easy for me to train people on how to register with fiverr and start bidding on projects, however the biggest task is for you to be able to develop yourself beyond what i taught.
When To Start Learning
As soon as you decide on what to do to make money online, the next important thing is for you to start working on your skill. When i started working on Fiverr as a writer, the first few projects really challenged me to start working on myself. Instead of me having to feel bad about modification request, i took it as an avenue for me to work on myself and learn the right things that can help me cope in the market.
If you’re planning to go far in whichever niche you choose, you need to start working on your skills immediately. There’s no right time for you to start, but now.
Try to identify the areas that need improvement and start making efforts to improve on it.
How To Learn
The internet has make learning so easy for everyone, and you don’t really need to struggle in order to learn the right thing. You can acquire all the necessary digital marketing skills from the comfort of your home. In fact, you can acquire them without spending a dime. However, there’s another bad thing about the readily available information on the internet – one can become “jack of all trades” without mastering any of them.
Because of this, you need to have a good plan for yourself. It is not about learning everything, the most important thing is for you to learn the right skills that will help you become authority in your niche.
You need to do everything possible to avoid distraction from different marketers. Funny enough, i might also be regarded as one of the distractors. Yes, i know i am a distraction to several people, especially those who are curious to know about the services i offer. If you’re in the habit of wanting to do what other people are doing, you might end up wasting your time. I started this training series by talking about INTEREST, which is the major thing that can help you cope even when the go becomes tough.
Don’t learn just anything that comes your way, learn the thing that appeal to you the most. Learn what can help you build a stronger career in digital marketing.
You don’t need to get carried away by the numerous earnings screenshots. Why am i saying all of these? The reason is because i was once in the habit of wanting to learn everything.
Where to learn
There are many online learning platforms that you can join today and start developing yourself. In fact, you don’t really need to join some of them. All what you need to do is to go to the website and start browsing your favorite training courses. Personally, i would recommend for you to subscribe to various channels on YouTube. Some of the other popular video training platforms include Linda.com and Udemy.com.
Make these platforms your favorite and start equipping yourself with the necessary skills that can help you build your digital marketing career.
What You Should NOT Do
While craving for more knowledge, you might end up learning the wrong thing if you’re not very careful, and if you’re the type who like to jump into every training course. Because of that, i have decided to highlight some of the things you should NOT do.
- Do not learn two different things at the same time. If you’ve already started learning graphics design, do not jump into learning lead generation at the same time. If you have to learn more than one thing, try to do it at different time.
- Don’t start learning the advance courses when you’ve not master the basic or the beginner courses.
- If you have to buy some premium training courses, make sure you’re not stockpiling them. Finish one before starting with the next.
- Don’t wait until you finish the training before practicing what you’ve learnt. Immediately you start learning, start practicing it.
- Don’t think that you know it all. It is not possible. Be humble and always learn from other experienced marketers.
I hope you’ll be able to utilize this short piece to develop your online marketing skills.
