    I have recently had a massive growth in the amount of orders that I am getting on Fiverr.com. The analytics say that in the last 7 days alone I have received 350K impressions on my article writing gig, and in the last 2 days I have received 10 orders+.

    These orders are god sent for helping me reach my target of $50 a day, but they are very time consuming. Is there any software, programs or special techniques to getting high quality articles written quickly? I think spending half an hour or more on each article is ludicrous.

    Please, if you have any advice for someone who really wants to succeed and afford a new computer by the end of the month, then leave it below thanks!

    OP, read the thread shared by Treeofl1 above.

    You can download "dragon naturally speaking", go here:
    This will save you a lot of times!

    Goodluck OP with your fiverr sales :)

    I have done a lot of article writing and I've found the trick for me is actually to type it out. I have a consistent 100+WPM and for some reason my brain works better as I see the words appearing in real time on the screen. However, I did try Dragon and it worked, just wasn't for me.

    What level of article are you promising for that price? I know the takeaway from a Fiverr gig isn't the best and people probably demand at least 500w for $5.

    You can always outsource as well, the quality will probably be terrible to keep it that cheap, but it's something you may want to consider if it's too much to handle.

    How many words are the articles and how much are you charging per article?

    Use dns to get the rough draft down, then switch to manual for the edit.

    Find a similar article, and re write the whole thing, sentence by sentence. Say pretty much the same thing, just use different words,and dd and subtract with your own info.

    Fiverr analytics are sometimes wrong. My impressions are different on different days. First day 5.4K, Next day 3.2K and again 6.4K!!! There is something wrong in Fiverr Analytics.

    Anyway good luck bro!

    Yes, my rate currently is $5 for 500 words of content. However, with the costs included this figure is more like $3.92 per 500 words. I also don't think that the dragon software is for me, but maybe with a bit of practise I may begin seeing some results.

    No... It's an account of the last 7 days. So of course, with each day the figure is going to go up or down. :)

    You can outsource. But you will have to see the posibility of getting lower quality articles

    With those stats only 103 people actually clicked on your gig, you could make quite a lot more if you focused on the wording on your gig title to be more enticing.

    To increase your words per minute you could try dragon naturally speaking, using another monitor or just trying to write faster. Although they do take time to get used to it can definitely help.

    Fiverr analytics is useless. It shows 0 views/impressions/clicks for one of my gig whereas I have already completed like 20 orders of that gig.
    So, don't really trust their gig stats.

    I'm hoping you have an upsell in place or at least in mind. Writing at a consistent level of quality on a literally unlimited number of potential topics is not sustainable, IMHO. Not if you want to make a living wage. I realize this is Fiverr and let's be realistic, people aren't going to get top level articles for $5. You can do something that isn't necessarily unethical. Let's be honest, probably everything that is going to be requested as an article has been written somewhere already, probably many times over. A decent shortcut would be to find one or more of these articles and rewrite the info in your own words. Don't spin them but why reinvent the wheel by doing research for an article for which you are paid $4?

    I wouldn't call 10 orders TONS and you have no idea if the trend will continue.......probably someone mentioned your service on one of the forums with a link to your Fiverr service. So your going to see a spike in visits, that will drop off as the post gets older. The good news is that, you could probably duplicate the effect by making some accounts on places like WF and giving yourself a good review.

    I'm not trying to be negative but you said you really want to succeed and yet you won't spend 2.5 hours per day to write 5 articles. That's not the attitude of someone determined to succeed.

    If you think spending half an hour to write an article is ludicrous then why did you start the fiverr gig in the first place?

    If you can't be bothered writing the articles yourself your only option is to outsource the work to someone who writes for less than $5 per article. The issue then is quality and of course poor quality will not help your fiverr reputation.

    If I were you I would put the effort in and do the work yourself. That will give you a reputation and a customer base. Once you have both of those you can start outsourcing and spend your time on quality control.

    I don't get how outsourcing would be a good idea . If he's making under 4$ per article then how would he have enough money to outsource and still make any profit? Forgive me if I'm being stupid and missing the point but it doesn't add up to me.
