What Did You Hear About Fiverr Before Joining?

Hello everyone I hope you all are doing well this day/night! I’m just making this post to see if anyone has any interesting stories about how you came to be on Fiverr. I always enjoy hearing other peoples’ stories. 🙂
I’ll just start off by saying I recently graduated community college under a Graphic Design degree, and I heard countless times from professors who work in the industry that Fiverr is only a place where you can make a quick buck. You do not want to be known as a Fiverr artist was stressed a lot during my academic career. Looking back on it I find it strange, I don’t see anything bad about Fiverr having been on here for a few days now. Your work gets viewed and you can actively see it’s getting viewed as well as the community where you can chat. All in all, I find it as kind of a leg up on things despite what professors have told me before.

Anyone else have similar stories or something different? How did you discover Fiverr?

I found Fiverr when a creator on Tumblr I support created an account and some gigs. I made the account to buy her gig and support her work, but I have no idea when/why I created an account (like, I actually don’t remember the day I made my first gig). In some hazy bout of boredom, I created an account and some gigs, and less than a year later, I’m doing pretty well. The only bad things I’ve heard about the platform are on the forum, honestly.

Wow so I guess people on other platforms use Fiverr too. That’s neat. I looked into your gigs and although I’m not one to hire someone to help me write (even though my writing sucks), I’m happy you’re doing pretty well. Hopefully one day I’ll get my first order. By the way, you only heard bad things about the forum? Why is that?

The forum is where people come to vent a lot, so it has more negative experiences than positive ones.

When I went to college, an all female one, we were told that the internet and being self employed are ways to avoid the glass ceiling women can face where their earnings may have a limit on them they can’t break through.

We didn’t talk about fiverr but we did talk about the opportunities of working on the internet.

I hadn’t heard of fiverr and found it on my own.

I wonder how did your college discuss working on the internet. Did they suggest you make a website for yourself and advertise it or something else?

This is a good question. I was around 17-18 looking for a good Psychic reading platform. I heard about this site, made an account, and got my first order probably around 2 hours after making the gig.

This is ironic because when I was younger I used to go on forums for ghost stories. I hope you found a good psychic reading platform though. That sounds interesting because all I hear about are the psychics you find on boardwalks or those commercials saying “call now to speak to a psychic”.

Ten years ago, I was just poking around for platforms to fill in the gaps of client contract work. I was already freelancing at the time. Fiverr came up in a search, so I signed up. Didn’t do much here for quite a while afterward. Heard a variety of opinions about it over the years, ignored many of them, and just kept working.
