Hello my friends,
I’ve only been here a week or so but what I thought was only spam all day may actually be people in need that we can help.
The only emails I’ve gotten since joining Fiverr, setting up my profile and demonstrating my 20+ years of online web dev and SEO experience is emails all day every day from people from China who want to use my Upwork account (I don’t have an ********* [another marketplace ] account). And they’re offering to pay me something like 100 to 150 a month plus commissions and bonuses.
So the only emails I’ve ever gotten on Fiverr are these emails. I began rethinking this and came up with two great ideas.
These poor guys maybe really need our help.
I could make bank helping ten or more of these guys a month. I’ve already gotten literally 15 separate people requesitng this help.
So here’s what I’m doing. I’m replying to these messages like this:
"This is so interesting. I was thinking about creating a gig to do exactly this! I get requests for this many times every day so I think I will be a rich man! Thank you.
I would like to give you my checking account number and my social security number and my other ID numbers to make this easier. Where should I send you this information?"
So it turns out the several days and dozens of hours I invested in setting up on Fiverr may not be the opportunity cost loss of helping other people who really want my services.
Thank you for enriching my life Fiverr and giving me an amazing ROI.
