The platform that saves me thousand of dollars! (Ways how to grow your business)
You may have read tons of articles about the “benefits of hiring freelancers” and “how to grow your business” but what I am sharing you is not a 50 pages book but a straight to the point tips. Let’s dive in!
When I started freelancing and be an entrepreneur, I registered on Fiverr to sell my services. As my research job gets bigger, I realize I need people to help me so that I could make more profit. Here’s how I did it.
You need someone to design you a very catchy and creative logo to make your company stand out of the crowd. I will show you how you actually can just spend a $5 to $10 budget to have that beautifully designed logo just for your company.
In the Fiverr platform, notice those I highlighted in the boxes with arrows. You can click on the photo below and you can try it your self. I searched for “creative logo design” services and the platform gives me 71,000+ professionals. You can actually also filter your search according to your preferences. The first page, first line, provides me professionals with a budget from $5 to $25 and you can actually see how many customers they have already served with ratings. So it is not hard for you to choose which one is the best you think that will give you results.
Next, you need someone to build you a website. Nowadays, people are looking at websites before they even purchase a product or service, so it is important for you to build a website for your business.
There are far more other skills you can find in Fiverr depending on what services your business needs. You could hire someone to develop and design you a website at a price range between $20 to $50 with high ratings and good reviews from hundreds of clients who have used their services.

It’s every entrepreneur’s dream to take their business from nothing and make it super profitable. But this is challenging – the future is unpredictable, and while most business ideas sound good on paper, they’re harder to pull off in the real world.
That’s why a marketplace like Fiverr – where entrepreneurs can both buy and sell services – can make a big difference in reaching profitability.
Here’s a testimonial of Kevin Maxwell, buyer on Fiverr
Entrepreneurs just starting out on Fiverr want to do great instantly, but this sometimes takes time. In the case of Kevin Maxwell, he exemplified what it meant to grow your business immediately.
Unhappy with his second job as a cleaner, earning just $9 an hour, Kevin took control of his destiny. Taking inspiration from a blog post he read about using Fiverr to start a business, he designed a website-funnel system that would net him a few thousand dollars in his first month.
“I love that fact that I found an awesome cold caller on Fiver.com that not only finds leads but also books the appointment and even records the calls and creates an excel spreadsheet for me” – Kevin Maxwell – Buyer on Fiverr
Here’s his system:
- Buy cold calling services to book appointments with small-business prospects, whom he’d meet.
- Work out a deal with the owner to build a website and get paid upfront.
- Outsource the web design work to Fiverr sellers for as little as $30.
- Meet with the client again to ensure they’re happy with the work.
- Transition to negotiating a monthly contract with the owner for website marketing campaigns.
This earned Kevin $3600 in his first month, and the labor he had to expend was only minimal.
