    So after starting just over a month ago, I have (finally) made my first cash from internet marketing.How much? You may ask...A WHOLE $4!!!! (or £2.33 in my currency)Yes, this feels amazing for me as I set up a gig on Fiverr to write reviews, articles etc for clients and I got my first sale within a week, and best of all the customer was happy! :)With my magical sum of $4 I can do a few things, buy a domain, buy a service, or leave it there for future spending.But now I ask, what is the next step I take? Do I try to continue with my Fiverr gig? Do I start a blog? Do I get into the PPD business?Thanks for reading guys, I hope you can appreciate my happiness right now as I know many IM'ers can relate to this.Also, Happy Holidays to everyone here on BHW :)

    Making that first money from your hard work feels great! Keep up the good work and add
    some zeros to those figures. :)

    Congrats for the achievement, you'll always remember those $4. :)

    IMO the next step should be diversifying your gigs to make more money. Just search the forum, there are a lot of gig ideas that you would be able to easily sell on Fiverr. After you gather some money look for methods here and decide what would be a good investment for you, be it starting a blog, going the PPD/CPA route or whatever.

    This is just the beginning, keep the hard work, never drop and you can't be quickly rich so slow and steady wins the race. Good luck :)

    Congrats on the $4! Continue with your gig to build more capital. Upsell using the Gig Extras. Look around Fiverr and see what else you can offer.

    Before you invest in anything, make sure you perform due diligence.

    And... always place some of the money you make aside for a rainy day ;)

    Work a bit on your fiverr gig to accumulate more money then you can invest in the other ventures you've mentioned.

    I wasn't necessarily going to change my method, I was thinking of doing another method along with Fiverr to increase my time efficiency, as lately I have been lurking this forum too frequently.

    Also, yes, I am now thinking of scaling up my Fiverr gig and will hopefully expand and offer different gigs also.

    Thanks for the advice :)

    OP, if the Fiverr gig is making you money, just continue cranking out gigs for a little until you are either sick of it or overloaded. Save up that cash and always have some some there to fall back on when needed.

    Perhaps you could start a side site on your own and add content to it every now and then. Don't burn the money you make from your gigs too fast is all I'm trying to say.
