If I were a Fiverr user, who invests and benefits from Fiverr I would like to give Fiverr funds for other users to benefit applying the Italian concept of ‘cafe sospeso’, which is paying for a coffee so the next customer that asks the barista a coffee, gets a free one. Someone else already paid for it.
Having created this funds Fiverr can then select who to destine this help, in other words, startups and serious users who struggle to meet the astronomical priced offers for their project to kick off.
With this concept Fiverr may be able to help cost half of one project or the totality of other project.
If Fiverr likes the ‘cafe sospeso’ approach, money awarded to help future users who struggle with budget, based on funds donated by ‘wealthy’ users. This may open a new philosophy of supporting and taking care of users, similar or different, to crowdfunding sites that exist.
For example if I invest $5.000 for a project with a Fiverr seller, and this results in a future $100.000 profit. I would be delighted in giving 1% or a bit more of my profit for Fiverr Funds program. Knowing this can benefit or help other users struggling to make their project a reality for simple reason of lack of budget.
I believe in human generosity and solidarity!
I may be wrong but from my experience on Fiverr, I have this perception of it:
that it’s every man for himself.
If the culture could be one that encircles more solidarity and more win-win type of interacting Fiverr will benefit a lot from this drifting away from competition for better.
Buyer rating by sellers. Like distinguished sellers exist, distinguished buyers may also be worthy of recognition. Not just by 5.0 scoring system, but also by: knowledge of the matter, inclination to give tips, leadership.
All in all taking care of users, improving users’ (both sellers and buyers) culture will give Fiverr super boost compared to competition!
