Okay so let me begin from start, I am Khalil Ahmed a student of BS(hons) in computer Science. I started blogging and SEO like 4 to 5 years ago.and started giving Guest Posting services on Huffington Post (I had contributor account at that time). I started cheap like with 5$ per guest post (and now I think why would i give such service in just 5$). But anyhow I made up to 350$ and I mentioned it clearly in my gigs as well in my orders that I am a contributor and these posts will be live only till my account is live. So one day my contributor account got disabled. Hence the posts were gone as well. But Fiverr Support I don’t know why refunded 150$ worth of money (Even I had clearly stated everywhere that these are not permanent post etc). I got disappointed with that and left fiverr for like 2 to 3 years.
Then I came back last month, after learning a new skill (Programming) and started giving my services. I made some good money from that and got good orders as well. But after like 1 month (3 to 4 days ago), when I woke up I opened my eyes to see if their is any customer who would’ve sent me a message then I should respond immediately but I GOT A SURPRISE !!!
Now I had to build up a new GIG and start working from zero again.
So here I am, Disappointed all again. I was thinking making it my full time job (along with my studies of course). But I don’t think I can rely that much on that now because if something like this can happen once, I can get strike for something like this again and have my account disabled.
So, what I learned from all this is "Never rely on one income source ever. " Always create multiple income sources for you. Though I wasn’t that lucky and I failed badly on other platforms and Fiverr was the only place where I got lucky or something and got some orders.
So, this is my story and this was my first strike ever.
