Let me tell you a story about how I thought I was going to make my first sale, only to end up empty-handed.
So there I was, I’ve created my first gig on Fiverr, ready to attract the first client at any moment. I’ve been patiently waiting for about a week before I finally received a message from someone who was interested. At first glance, I grew a little suspicious of this buyer. They said they will offer $50-$100 a month if I helped them. As a person who was just starting out, this seemed too good to be true, but I asked them to elaborate on what they need me to work on. The buyer then says that it would be better to talk about it further via email. Of course, I refused to provide my email as I knew that this would go against Fiverr’s TOS. Eventually, they stopped responding to me as I persisted in refusing to provide other contact information.
So that’s my story. I didn’t make my first sale today unfortunately, but I’m glad I didn’t give in and do something I would regret later
