Chapter 03 - Fiverr Isn't Your Competition
One of the many questions you may ask yourself as a designer is how you're going to stand out from your competition. And this is a HUGE question to ask! But an even more important question is, what kind of a designer do you want to be?
I often get asked, "How do you compete with the Fiverr community mindset of logos that cost $50?" And I'll tell you right now, I don't. Fiverr isn't my competition, and if you offer the same or similar types of services that we do, they aren't your competition either.
Simply put, Fiverr appeals to a very specific type of clientele; people that don't have a budget to invest in their business and need something to get them by.
What you put out will attract what you want. Like attracts like. Ensuring how you present your business to the world is refined and represents you authentically will attract the kind of clients you want. Because we spend a lot of time refining our look on Instagram and our website, we are attracting people that find value in what we have to offer. And this is why Fiverr isn't our competition, or yours. It's the same as a person who spends more on a shirt that's built to last or one that costs $5. You either find the value, or you don't.
We talk a lot about this subject in our course The Designer's Business Survival Guide, and how to attract those dream clients you've always wanted. Head over to our course page HERE for more info and as always, if you have any questions feel free to reach out! 😊
