I doubt I even got one sale. Live and learn. That said, I’ve heard wonderful things about the services you’ve mentioned. Plus, your book covers always look awesome. What’s not to love?

Hope you enjoy your Memorial Day, Molly!!!

I routinely backup my stuff to an external hard drive but I never thought of using my DropBox as a backup for my files. Never hurts to have a second (and easy to use) option!

Comment on Fiverr: Every Author’s Secret Staff by Anne Hagan http://www.molly-greene.com/fiverr-every-authors-secret-staff/#comment-89738 Tue, 24 May 2016 21:47:59 +0000 http://www.molly-greene.com/?p=9926#comment-89738 I’m sorry I missed this before King. I haven’t used Fiverr for editing but editors are available there. Across the board, editors charge by the word or by the page. It doesn’t matter if you hire them from Fiverr or from anywhere else you can find them. The best I can tell you is to look at several, ask questions and pick the one who has no scheduling conflicts, who seems to understand your particular needs and who fits within your budget.

My formatting pro charges an average of $20 US, not $200. Her Fiverr user name is aalishaa. (Alisha with an extra ‘a’ at each end).

I mentioned Twitter posts in my ‘Things never to buy on Fiverr’. You’re correct there. As for LinkedIn, I was a recruiter for many years. It’s very much a professional site for connections and networking. It’s not built for sales – unless you’re looking for employees – and most people don’t respond to anything at all salesy, especially about books other than the occasional non-fiction, business related book.

However, I’ve also tried a couple of book promotion gigs via Twitter & LinkedIn and found they had no impact on sales.
But I’ll continue to use the site for covers.

I believe Anne mentioned Elance in one of her replies – and you’re right, there are a lot of good options for us and quality freelancers out there. Best to you!

It was interesting to read on Fiverr.

I have been using Fiverr for quite some time. I write just one blog post a month – 1000 word. It is an important aspect of my branding. To ensure it is of high quality, I get 3 beta readers / freelancers on fiverr to critique and edit. The 3 different views ensure the article turns out super good. Of late, I give tip also of Usd.5 each, as Usd.5 for the high quality job they do seems very low.

Other than fiverr, I have used

upwork.com (earlier known as elance) – for full-book editing. You post the job, and get offers. I think you can get 30,000 word, book editing starting at Usd.150 or so. I also got lay out of my print book done through it – again on similar costs.

pickfu.com – Usd.20 survey, on what book covers seems good, what book title is good etc, etc. I even put up 2 versions of my book back cover and got it voted. For usd.20, 50 Respondents select from A / B options, with their reasons. You can get the same work done from friends, but friends are busy, and they will just say – it is good etc. Here you get the reasons too.

99designs.com. I used it for my book cover design. Job starts at Usd.199. It is worth it. 20 – 30 designers submit their designs in that. You get to pick and choose.

All in all lot of quality freelancers out there.

Regars..
Anil
