When Fiverr Pro was launched in 2017, the goal was to give customers access to professional-level freelancers. It has also been designed to give freelancers a specialized marketplace in four distinct categories.
In a new infographic entitled "Anatomy of a Fiverr Pro Vendor", the Israeli company reveals nine essential characteristics that make the reputation of a Pro Seller. And these experts have proven to be valuable assets for small businesses, startups, entrepreneurs and even large corporations.
According to Fiverr's Fueling Entrepreneurship Report, 81% of respondents said that business creation tools were more accessible than ever before, but 64% said they spent too much time trying to find the right professional. With Pro Seller and Fiverr's independent user base, the company wants to solve this problem – by enhancing the potential for winnings of freelancers in the process.
The best freelancers in Fiverr can earn six incomes. And according to Forbes, they often start at the bottom of the ladder and progress up the ladder to get premium rates. With Pro Seller, candidates are selected based on their expertise in order to start earning a salary immediately.
Characteristics of a good freelancer
In computer graphics, a Pro salesman is identified as someone who is hardworking, disciplined, and professional. Demonstrating these qualities is key for freelancers because they are responsible for providing the results that their buyers are asking for every time.
Poor performance leads to bad revisions, which will mean fewer and fewer customers.
A freelancer is also his own customer and marketing representative. And effective freelancers need to be adaptable and flexible, two other important features. According to Fiverr, 43% of customers seek these two criteria when they hire people with whom they wish to work.
Great freelancers should plan accordingly considering the services they offer to their clients. Options include planning related services to add to their core offerings or forming partnerships with other Pro sellers to get the job done.
