    Hi guys,

    I will be glad if you help me with a little problem that I have. So I will give you my background first.

    I'm a professional graphic designer since 2012, 22 yrs old and I'm working as freelancer in Fiverr and similar sites since 2013. I live in South America, so life is cheap here (like $120 for month its a middle class salary) but my country is getting veeeeery unstable (some north american youtubers has come here and they get very impressed about how many bills are used locally for just $1) so I'm thinking in emigrate to Costa Rica with my girl. But for that I need to increase my income.

    I have thought in promote my service in english-language classified sites or Facebook Ads, but I'm not so good in Internet Marketing, so I wanted to know your opinion and what tips can you give me. My girl and I gonna appreciate your help :)

    Regards from South America!
    iUsagi.

    I think getting out of Fiverr and onto more professional freelance platforms would be a good thing to start with. Then you could increase your rates a little. You've already a portfolio, after all.

    I agree with this. It must be a nightmare offering design services on fiverr, even with the upgrade options. If you have the talent, and a portfolio, don't underprice your service.
