This may look as publicity. It sure is, but I am not getting any cash writing this. I am simply expressing my opinion and using only my experience, I want to help others make money and grow using FIVERR as a day job. I have started working on fiverr in 2015 and after a few months of success I decided to make the next step and start working on other platforms as freelancer.com, upwork.com, and peopleperhour.com; It was easy to sign up and start an account, but when it come to doing business it was very hard. These platforms are very different to fiverr.com and my experience showed me that as a simple freelanccer with no money, it’s hard to start elsewhere than fiverr.
On fiverr you simply start working. You choose your category, add your descriptions, and wait for customers.You can promote your profile using the social media platforms for free and you can send offers to customers for free. There are 10 offers you can send daily for free. There is no charge to increase your account and the only money you’ll pay on fiverr, are commissions. Whenever you make a sell, fiverr will charge 20% the amount you set with your buyer. So there is no need to invest money in making offers or in promoting yourself on the platform. Fiverr is designed to help newcomers to start a business without any money, but only using their skills.
Let me tell you something about the other platforms I have used. I just want you to know that my thoughts are based only on my experience on these platforms.
Here’s what I learned. First of all, platforms like freelancer.com. people per hour or upwork are very hard to work on. The platforms are messy organized and there are a lot of rules withdrawing money. Paypal is the easiest online pocket to work with and some these platforms don’t offer you the possibility to work with it. The main reason I don’t like these platforms is because you can see right from the beginning that they are not designated for a newcomer. You have to invest some money in promoting your account or you have to pay to contact some buyers. As a freelancer, you have no money. The only thing you have is your talent and your goal is to show people what you can do. I think these huge platforms are for people who work in agencies and they have money to invest in their accounts. So if you are a real freelancer and you work for yourself, start with fiverr because you can grow from scratch.
