Justin Matthew jmhhackerRecently I had the privilege to interview Justin Matthew, a social media entrepreneur and top seller on Fiverr.  I found Justin on Facebook  and quickly realized that he was a top influencer and a great guy all around.  He is really at the top of his game right now.  Meet Justin Matthew, the King of Fiverr!

 

 

Q.  Peter  Trapasso(P): What is your preferred title and company name?

A.  Justin  Matthew(J): Justin Matthew, Social Media Manager at JMH Consulting, Inc.

 

Q.  P: Where are you located?

A.  J: Orlando, FL

 

Q.  P: How did you get your start?

A.  J: After working in finance for 8 years I needed a change.  I worked with Household Hackers on their viral YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/householdhacker that became 25th in World.  I managed their network (dealt with negotiations) and got them a great revenue deal plus some brand name sponsors.  I took over negotiations, researched and wrote 80 episodes, and was in 40 of them.  189 million+ Youtube views and 1.3 million subscribers to date. Revision3 broadcast their videos and Netflix, Ford, and others were sponsors.

I spent 2 years with Household Hacker guys then started building my own social networks.  I had a plan along.  With social media there is always something new something to learn.  And I let it lead me wherever it takes me.

As far as my social networks go, Google+ is #1 followed by Pinterest,  Instagram with 71K  (I took my 1st photo 1 year ago and I want 1 million followers), then Twitter.

Google+ is great for SEO and natural page ranking.  It seems like more followers equals higher rankings in Google Search results.  The old days of SEO stuff are over!

There is a 5,000 limit on people you can follow on Google+ (like Facebook profiles)

My #2 social network is Instagram with 71K followers.   I posted my 1st photo 1 year ago.   I spend about 1 hr per day on Instagram followed by Pinterest.

You need to do the hard work every day to make this work.  I put in a ton of hours learning and building up my social networks.

The results:

Klout had a contest earlier this year where the Top 10 influencers in the Klout topic got to meet with the CEO.  Justin finished 5th and was one of the big winners!

 

Q.  P: I bought one of your Fiverr gigs with the extras and read through everything you sent me.  I took a lot of notes and it sounds like you have multiple revenue streams?

A.  J: My #1 revenue stream is Fiverr (Justin’s Fiverr Gigs page http://fiverr.com/jmhhacker).  I made 5 figures so far with my 20 gigs and extras.  You would be surprised as to who is buying gigs on Fiverr.  My #2 stream would be 4-5 Private Clients.  I also do consulting by phone with people all over the world and I am working on some other projects too. I plan on moving into some office space soon.

 

Q.  P: How are you so successful on Fiverr?

A.  J: The key to fiver is 100% positive reviews and the reviews are worth more than the $5 you charge for gigs!  Out of 5000 deliveries and a full 20 gigs reaching every network.   I have 100 percent ratings all raving reviews which is nearly impossible to achieve. I also have up to 5 helpers to fill all my orders and things have really taken off in the past 30 days.

I always under-promise and over-deliver.  I deliver 2-5x the value per order and get 100% positive reviews!

Also you need to be a Level 2 Seller – get there.  Start with at least 10 orders with good reviews to get to Level 1.  Then hit 50 orders with more reviews to get Level 2.

 

Q.  P: Do you use any of the Fivver Clones?

A.  J: Not even bothering with the clones.  Fiver is #140 (US) on Alexa and all the clones together <2%.

 

Q.  P: Do you have a blog?

A.  J: Both http://jmhhacker.com and http://thejmhhacker.com.

 

Q.  P: What is your blog traffic like?

A.  J: About 9000 visitors per day.  Mostly from Google+.  It’s all about the (social) networks.

 

Q.  P: What’s next?

A.  J: Ebooks.  A Fiverr ebook/guide is a best seller to be!

 

Q.  P: Any bonus tips for our readers?

A.  J: Continue building up your current accounts daily.

Here is a network you should be on – Empire Avenue.  I  joined 4 months ago and now have the 5th highest dividend!  I guess that there are maybe 20-30k members on Empire.  Learn how to run Missions.  Most of mine are run by my helpers.  Find a way to get to 1 billion eaves and cash out somehow ($100k?).  Open and account today and add and Empire Avenue link to your blog!

Find your talent as fast as possible and leverage it.

One more tip: Instagram = Fire for your blog.
