How helping people for free got me started on fiverr

This picture actually got me started making some good money here on fiverr.

The story goes like this:

I was part of a group, and had no idea how to go about
asking to be paid for what I could do. I didn’t even mention it.

The funny thing is, there was this other guy in the group,
that one day, just made a bold post, out of the blue, that he
could bring a website into a Facebook page for $25.00

People jumped at this offer, and of course he made a quick
couple hundred bucks. I was stupified. (if that’s a word).

There I was, an active member, with a ‘skill’ and tools, but
missed my opportunity.

Anyway, I thought long and hard about how I could learn to be as
bold as this guy was, so I could offer my services at a price.
To make a long story short, the next day I uploaded this picture
to the group along with text that read, “I have changed my focus”

I then made a comment in the comment section that if anyone needed
a cover photo designed for their Fb page, or needs help with creating an HTML
Landing Page, just let me know.

Needless to say, the response was terrific. I did all for free, but I also made
a name for myself in the process. That was almost 4 years ago.
Now I help people, $5 at a time.

Awesome, you’re one of my favorite posters here, all the best!
