2 successful soloists share what it’s really like to start a small business
Small business owners have always been a brave bunch. Sure you need a great business idea to get something off the ground but you also need the tenacity and courage to back yourself and see it through. Lucas Vitale and Leah Gibbs are two Australian soloists who’ve managed to launch successful small businesses.
With a shared commitment to providing great service to their digital customers, both business owners told Flying Solo they’ve relied on Fiverr.com to leverage their success.
Fiverr is a small business owner’s best friend. The world’s largest marketplace for digital freelancers, when you join you’re part of a global community of freelancers like graphic designers, copywriters, voiceover artists, website developers, marketers, SEO specialists, musicians, film editors and more.
Lucas started his small business, SEO Sydney with the intention of helping companies of varying sizes maximise their online exposure. He had the skills down pat so turned to Fiverr.com for help with leveraging his business plan.
In the past Lucas has used Fiverr platform – especially in the initial stages of setting up his own business.
“I’d used graphic design, logo design, website coding fixes, translation services, article writing, data entry, customer service professionals, and video editing services,” he told Flying Solo.
When it came to leveraging his own business, Lucas said Fiverr.com helped him find quick success.
“Once the business got off the ground money started coming in like never before. It was great to see my hard work was definitely paying off.”
Leah has been running Your Digital Agency, a digital marketing agency for 14 years.
“I joined Fiverr as a Pro when my business was quiet,” she told Flying Solo. “I’ve used CRM Setup, Marketing Videos, Email Marketing & Sales Funnels to get started.”
“It definitely keeps me busy that’s for sure!” said Leah.
With two thriving businesses on the go and a third idea in the works, Leah says Fiverr has been fundamental to her success.
“I love Fiverr and working as a Pro. There’s an audience ready to buy and I get to work with all types of businesses and work with new people from all around the world.”
With the world changing around us so quickly right now, there’s never been a better time to bring your great idea to life.
And with Fiverr.com in your small business toolkit, success will be just a matter of time.
