    I have started a new journey of earning 50 $ daily as graphic designer. Details of the journey are:

    Time available: I have 4 to 8 hours a day free for this journey.

    Skills : Photoshop, Illustrator and Corel Draw.

    Resources : Using Fiverr and Upwork.

    Project: Interested in Banner designs, logo designs, Infographics

    Method:
    Created a new account on Fiverr and Upwork. Both some reviews on fiverr to speed up the things. (I really dont know how many reviews will be enough for getting the things started. I would love to get insight from you people)

    Why i will succeed this time:
    1. I have learnt from my mistakes.
    2. Delivering quality very cheap.
    3. Will not give up this time.


    I am open to ideas on how to improve my journey. I will post my daily progress here.

    Regards.

    I have been sometime on upwork, and there is a lot of competence. You might want to basically stay really active there to pick up on jobs related to your skill and pray they pick you. The way it has worked for me is that, whenever I am the first one that submit a proposal, I get the call. If I choose to send a proposal to a job that has 5-10 proposals already submitted, I always never get called.

    Hope this help.

    fiverr takes too much profit, but if it's easy then it can go very well
    reviews normally give people $1.5 profit

    Great journey, I will definitely learn a lot from your mistake. Never give up, you will win, I gave up few times so failed all the time.
    Best luck of you.

    Create a Good account over upwork.
    Upload your best work in portfolio.
    Upload real testimonials from your client.
    Be responsive towards your client.
    Never drop your price after placing your Bid .
    Before taking any order ask for complete details and after the end of conversation note down all your client requirements point wise and ask for his conformation.
    Give test over upwork in your working category and score at least 4+ grade.

    What I learned in the few years that I've been flipping/trading :

    - Look professional. People will take you more serious if you do. There are several occasions in which customers chose me over the competitor because of the way my advert looked.
    - Answer mails / requests formally. Dear... / end correctly.
    - Build up a decent amount of good reviews before charging and/or offer a limited time promotion (offer your service for a very low price) in order to gain reviews. Reviews are key...

    Good luck!

    Hello everyone and thanks for the best wishes.

    Summary of October 19,2015.
    Got 3 order on fiverr.
    Work Done:1 Order
    Work To be Done: 2 Order

    Pending Income Earned : 4$.

    It was a busy day. I was busy in the marketing of the gig and was finding other opportunities to enhancing income opportunities. So,i could not do enough work.

    Summary of October 20,2015.
    Work DOne: 2 Orders
    Work to be Done: 6 Orders.

    I am getting orders of 5 $ a gig from fiverr. I am thinking of expanding opportunities for getting more return.

    Income Earned Pending: 4 + 8 = 12 $.

    I gave up in 2010 and i have been busy in my offline life. I had great experiences and got a good offline job. But i always regret for not continuing my online struggle. I have seen people growing from nothing to good success stories (Kinle, BrassTackBoat, Mathew sorry for incomplete names) and i have always wished i could be one of them. What i will advise you is to not to give up. Its better to be late than never achieving your goal.
    What i have learnt from these five years is that trying hard is not key to success but consistent trying is the key to success.

    Sometimes a cup of good tea is better than pot and cocaine :)

    can I ask how old is your fiverr account? do you ever trade for reviews?

    anyway, you should PM every buyer and ask them to refer their friends with some discounts. you should be able to scale up your earning without relying on new orders.

    Sorry Friends but late reply. I have been earning around 20-30 $ per day. Last month earned me more than 560$ from fiverr alone. Now, working on upwork and freelancer as well. Actually thinking of establishing a website. I have bought the domain name already.
