First Time Fiverr | Week 24
“Always thank those who lend you a hand. You never know if you’ll need their help again.” – Bryce Ward 10/16/2020
This past week I set out to create six new Twitch Emotes and six Loyalty Badges for my channel, BryceIsTubing. Since I am not a graphic designer myself, I decided to hire an artist on Fiverr to work on the project. Let me share with you what I learned as a first-time buyer on Fiverr.
Before you even set out to hire someone on Fiverr, there are a few things you need to ensure your project will be of the best quality. If you are looking to hire someone to create Twitch Emotes as I did, you need to know your budget, and you will want to bring examples of what you are looking to develop. For myself, my budget for this project was $150. I made sure to get examples of artwork I use for my character and models for the emotions I wanted to create. Once you know your budget and have some examples of what you are looking to build, it is time to find an artist.
Thinning Out The Herd
When you are looking to hire someone on Fiverr, you want to make sure that the seller has examples of their past work and that you like their style. You also want to make sure that they have a good track record when working with clients. When it came to Twitch emotes, I narrowed it down to one Graphic Designer named Sakurart2020, who had a style that I liked and has worked with over a thousand clients. All of whom had left glowing reviews, myself included.
Putting Things In Motion
Once you find an artist you like, send them a message explaining your project and ask them if it sounds like something they would be willing to take on. I messaged Sakurart2020 my project details, and within 24 hours, Sakurart2020 responded with a quote for $130. Within a few days, I had examples of the artwork you see above, and with some minor changes, we had the final product.
Hey, thank you for reading this week’s post. I hope you found this week’s post helpful when it comes to hiring freelancers online. I was thrilled with the product Sakurart2020 delivered, and I plan to do business with them in the future. Have you ever hired a freelancer before? If so, what would you have done differently to improve the final product? I would love to hear your stories in the comments down below.
