Why You Shouldn’t Start As A Freelancer on Fiverr

Fiverr’s cheap model targets cheap clients who browse the site looking for the cheapest freelancers to get their job done at the lowest possible cost. Most of them don’t even care about the quality, they just want the job done for cheap. Which is very annoying from our point of view.

Would you rather be known as the guy who designs logos for $5 or the guy who design logos for million-pound startups?

Even if you managed to catch the attention of a good client, Fiverr limits your pricing to either $5, $25, $50, or $100. Sure you can also add extras or ask for multiple order placements to charge higher for your services, but each time a buyer places an order, Fiverr then takes 20% off of each order! Don’t forget the Paypal processing fee also. Is all of this worth it?

Value the work you do and the skills you have. Fiverr is good to make money on the side, but as a freelancer the earning potential is so much more.
