If you work on the web, you may need ad hoc skills. Platforms like Fiverr allow customers to connect with freelancers from different fields. Design, development, video, copywriting, or even marketing, Fiverr has experts from all over the world. We tested a Fiverr command with the task of creating a cover photo for a Spotify playlist.
Create a Fiverr Account
It’s easy to create a Fiverr account. When you go to the website, you can use your email address or the login services provided by Google, Facebook or Apple.
Once the account is created, the default status is “Customer”, but you can turn your account into a service provider with just a few clicks. If you are a freelancer, being on the platform will help you find customers quickly. In our example we have chosen a simple service, but you can also manage large projects on Fiverr.
We tested the classic platform, but you can also go for Fiverr Pro, which brings together the top 1% of freelancers on the platform. For its part, Fiverr Business goes even further with a dedicated project manager.
Submit a job posting or find the ideal freelancer
In the classic version of Fiverr, you have two options for finding a freelancer. The first is to post an advertisement and wait for applications. The second, and this is what we have chosen, is to choose the freelancer himself.
So we researched several profiles in the graphics field and looked for professionals who have already done Spotify covers. On each of the profiles you can see the grades given by previous customers, a presentation of the activity and, most importantly, a portfolio of projects. After our freelancer was selected, we placed an order.
Progress of the project
On the freelance side, you can choose between different offers. In our case, we opted for the basic offer, which offers a delivery time of two days and a rendering file for the web only. The two more expensive offerings offered the source files and renderings for printing.
You will then be redirected to the payment page and can pay by card or PayPal.
You will then be redirected to a page where you can communicate your assignment to the freelancer. In our case, we’ve explained who the playlist is for, its title, and the universes that interest us. Just minutes after ordering, Isayef asked us questions to learn more and work on the project.
Less than a day after the briefing and sending the information, Isayef came back to us with a first version of the visual and a model in Spotify. We only requested one change and it was delivered in just a few hours. Once the project is validated, you will receive the project files and the freelancer will receive their payment.
In the end, the experience was very positive. It was very easy to find the perfect freelancer for our project and then make it a reality. As soon as the order has been placed, you are in direct contact with the service provider and can move forward quickly. It is important to note that Isayef went faster than the deadlines announced in his announcement.
If you want to go further, the Fiverr Pro platform allows you to be in direct contact with the best freelancers on the platform, and Fiverr Business offers an advanced project management solution. To try Fiverr or to work freelance on the platform, the following happens:
