Earning money online is a tricky business. When you stumble upon any way to get rich online, it seems very easy at first and you start day dreaming and making plans about being free from your full time job. But eventually you realize that the process was not easy and the success icons which you seen making money with it are still there earning more and more and you are still there at the bottom of the pyramid scratching dust.
Why this happens?
The simple answer is that there is an ice breaking point for every damn method in this world and internet is not different from it. Up to that ice breaking point your struggle will reap nothing and you have to keep burning that candle of hope inside you. You have to feed positivism to your hope every day and keep working until you break that ice breaking point. The amount of work done by you do not changes, but only difference which happens in due course is that you start making fortunes out of it by doing the same amount of work you did in days of zero income. For example in blogging 99% of the user leave blogging after six months and they never reach that ice breaking point in their life. They never realize even if there was an ice breaking point or not. But it was there, the only question being, how far from it you burned hopes.
The similar things happen when you want to start earning by doing freelance work. You become stuck in that famous paradox. You will not get rating and reviews on sites like elance and freelancers until you submit few projects and you will not get projects until you have some rating and reviews.
What is Fiverr
Fiverr is an online marketplace of services for five dollars. If you are a seller, you can create an account on fiverr and start selling your service for five dollars. It can be anything.
- You can write an article on fiverr
- You can do a voice over for 5 dollars.
- You can create a logo for 5 dollars.
- You can analyze any website from user perspective
- You can do anything you want …
How Fiverr Differs
Fiverr differs from other freelancing sites in a way just because of the magic figure of 5 dollars.
What are five dollars. Nothing!
This microscopic amount prorogues someone to try your services, even when they are skeptical about it. There may be many doubts in mind of the project givers.
- You are good or not.
- You are experienced or not.
- Whether his money will go in vein or not.
These doubts disappear when the buyer looks at the price of service. OMG its only 5. Lets try it.
And thus it lowers the ice breaking point. You start receiving the projects. Look at it from your perspective. Even if you are only going to earn 5 usd, but the time spent on delivering the service is also less. Apart from it you are getting a chance to showcase you talent. After submitting you get rating and review which will boost your orders up to n times. The orders will start poring in, And its always better to have a ticking account of 20-30 works submitted per day with 100-150 usd credited to your account daily than bidding for projects worth 1000 usd and doing nothing .
Another thing which is awesome on fiverr is that you can promote your extra or full length services for a higher amount like 50 usd or 100 usd, so that the user who like your service for dollar 5 can pay more to get more out of you. So, in a way fiverr becomes a Place where you can give a Demo for dollar five.
