Starting this newsletter is an exciting chapter for me! Thank you so much for subscribing!
Why did I decide to start this newsletter?
I’ve always wanted to be transparent about my current agency life. How? By demonstrating interesting case studies and issues that I have dealt with and by sharing useful tips related to Digital Marketing and freelancing on Fiverr. I am hoping to help other freelancers scale their business and inspire aspiring digital marketers to start their own freelancing journey 🙂
Who am I?
I started my freelancing journey back in 2015 on the freelancing platform Fiverr. Then I was still playing D1 College Tennis at the College of Charleston. Originally I am from St. Petersburg, Russia, so it was a whole new experience for me to come to the States and pursue my goals. 6 years later I was able to build a 7 figure agency on Fiverr. Since then I went through all the crazy up’s and down’s of handling such an agency.
In 2017 I graduated from the College of Charleston and decided to go all in in my agency. Here is what happened during that year:
2018 & 2019 were very consistent years. Then I was working only to scale the operations and services. Here are a few main highlights:
Built a 10+ team in Russia.
Built a 4+ team in the Philippines.
Opened 3 offices in Russia and 1 in the Philippines.
Reached 1M+ in revenue on Fiverr.
and as you can see something really wrong happened at the end of 2019…Yes, I had to completely shut down my Fiverr business, cancel all operations and fire everyone in the agency…
In January 2020 I had no idea of what I wanted to do and started to experiment with many things. I quit Fiverr and didn’t really make any revenue during that year.
But…I went all in towards selling outside of Fiverr and here is what happened:
In December 2020 I started to look into Fiverr again: I noticed that some sellers completely restructured the service I was offering before and were actually successfully selling it. This got me really motivated and I started to work on bringing back my gigs on Fiverr. As I lost all of my seller levels by January, I started selling my gigs again as a non-level seller. Fast forward to August 2021 - I was able to regain all seller levels and became a Top Rated Seller for the 2nd time now. It feels like I am starting from the very beginning again but in reality I am starting fresh with a lot of experience .
Let’s see what happens in the next few months and how this journey will progress🙂 Whatever awaits ahead, I am feeling really good to be sharing my journey with you. In the upcoming emails I will be talk more about how you can start or scale your freelancing journey on a platform like Fiverr.
Thank you and talk soon! 🙏😉
I need a good side gig to help with my student loan. Of course I'd love to scale it up to a full-time gig! I see you've made $53K this year (thru Aug 21). Nice job! Let's talk. How can I start?
