Hi guys, In my humble quest to better understand and penetrate the IM scene, i started two gigs on fiverr selling "service x" and "service y". the business is not yet cost effective (i still spend more time completing each gig than i should, because i havent perfected the system yet), but given that i have to basically '0' to create the service i am selling and we are still on the learning phase, its all cool. The good thing about Fiverr is that there are always ready buyers (majority of which are honest blokes) on standby. Fiverr's "escrow" system is good imo (though i have read reports that this can be axploited); the problem is that clients on Fiverr pay peanuts for the services rendered and there is a long clearing time before one can withdraw the cheap sum of three dollars plus. Luckily in my 2 short month of Fiverr-ing, i managed to earn an accumulated sum of 40 dollars. Other newbies might be discouraged because the orders started slow, but like in any other business. One must not be easily discouraged by a slow start in any venture. I would like to thank every one here on Blackhatworld; the gurus my fellow newbies and some trolls for keeping this forum alive and growing. If not for the lively threads, majority of which are educational, I wouldn't have thought of trying my luck on this industry. It is like the online wild west or something, it pretty damn hard but anyone with balls can try his luck with an almost equal chance with anybody else. Again thank you all for helping newbies like me. Now, i have some cash to purchase IM tools so i could expand my services.
