How to avoid working for free

If you’re new to Fiverr like me, you are very much welcome. Fiverr is a very successful market place both for buyers and sellers and is truly a global brand. As a seller myself, I would like to point out something very peculiar to freelancer platforms like Fiverr. There are buyers who would like to take advantage of newbies and make them work for free.

Sometimes, buyers ask for a sample to their request. You should only provide samples of your previous works. Do not be muzzled into doing the actual job. If you’re a writer, some buyers will go as far as asking you to write a demo on a topic they provide. You should avoid this. Don’t be scammed.
