Not really angry so this isn’t much of a rant but I dunno just felt like posting here.
Firstly, why you can’t just change username? it’s pretty basic functionality.
Anyway that’s not the reason i’m going, it’s just i’ve had an account for 6+ months now and made £3. I don’t feel like that’s because fiverr is bad I think im just not equipped to market my (admittedly basic) skills. Even though I didn’t put all the effort I could have into making my gigs better and getting across exactly what I can/can’t do, I’ve spent so many hours on fiverr with nothing to show for it except £3.03 I just can’t bring myself to bother anymore, I’d been thinking of deleting it for a month or so now and then I got an order out of the blue but it was a terrible experience and has put the nail in the coffin.
i’m still unsure whether I will actually ever try to get freelance work again. It’s been a mixed experience that has netted me almost nothing (even though it’s 96% my fault my gigs don’t look attractive) it just doesn’t seem worth my time and if I wanted to fully commit I would probably be better off doing it outside of fiverr anyway (why lose 20% of all your earnings when you’re going to lose a chunk to Tax as well?)
I hope the rest of you do well and don’t get shafted by fiverr or any weird buyers down the line. Anyways good luck and I hope any other newcomers have a much better return than I did.
