I have recently noticed the 20% commission rates, and Fiverr supposedly bans people for reaching out to their clients outside the platform, and artists working for pennies driving prices down for everybody else.
Do you think that an affiliate could solve this? - you promote yourself and get lower fees (e.g. 1% instead of 15%). This way you could get well-paid work, a lot of reviews, and organic traffic from the platform.
And secondly, how about minimum hourly rates for these platforms? About $6-$10, do you think that would help with the cheap labor issue?
I’d love to hear your opinions on this.
