It’s not an investment unless you make money. If you “invest” on Google Ads and don’t get a single conversion, you just wasted good money. Also, why not do both? Use your money from Fiverr to buy ads on Google for your website. Besides, suppose Fiverr changes their business model tomorrow, they let you keep 100% of your earnings BUT you’ll have to pay $100 a month, and management will have to approve each gig. Would that be better? I think that would be a nightmare. Why not focus on the 80% you’re making instead of the 20% you’re losing? 80% of something is better than 100% of nothing. I absolutely agree with what you wrote here.
