Are you sure you’re doing all the work? What about all those Fiverr employees that keep the website running? What about CS that helps you when you’re in a jam? What about all those advertising campaigns Fiverr does to attract customers?
I think your attitude is “I don’t want to make $10,000 because I’m afraid of losing $2,000.” My attitude is “I’m happy to make $8,000.”
Think about this. I own vending machines, the small ones that sell gumballs, candy, etc. I paid a locator $44 to find me a location. This in addition to the $150 I paid for the machine, plus $40 for candy. So I have already spent more than $200 and haven’t made a cent. If the location is successful, the machine will make $20 to $40 a month, and I’ll get my money back eventually and then make a profit. Of course, if someone puts the wrong coin in the machine, I’m gonna have to pay a handyman $60 to remove the coin. I also worry about my machine being stolen.
My point is most businesses require you to spend money to make money. Fiverr doesn’t. You have an internet connection, but instead of watching stupid memes about cats, you’re making money without spending money! Why not be happy about that?
