Please feel free to respond, give feedback, criticism, etc.. It all helps Backstory: For about 2 years now I have used Fiverr to do content writing for others. Being born and raised in Canada and going to a great University I have always believed my writing and English proficiency was "on another level" compared to some of my competition. I have made a suitable amount of money ( well over the thousand dollar range) over this time to pay for some luxuries (iPhone, clothes, fine dining, etc.). School, housing, utilities are all provided by my parents at this time so I live a very comfortable life. Though I can not continue to live through my parents and even though I would like to continue my education (and will) I need to make MORE money so I can be less of a burden on them (they also support my younger siblings). Pleasures and Frustrations Given from Fiverr: I am blessed that I was given the outlet of Fiverr to use to sell my writing service. At the start I would like to think I dominated. I might not have had the most used writing service but I had customers who loved my work. On a quality based level I also thought I delivered the most "bang for your buck" service, spending over 1 hour writing an article of 400-500 words from scratch and never simply taking the spinning way to get things done. This is where the problems arise, $4 is something but is it worth it? At first I was so happy to be making it but as time continued I lost a passion.Yesterday night I probably wrote one of my best written articles yet but I was not happy writing it. In fact at some points I just want to close my gig cash my money and just walk away. I can't though, I need to make money. Solutions: 1. Selling my writing independent on Fiverr through word of mouth or posting in places like the market place on BHW: I have thought about this one for a while now, but would people really be interested. I feel like my work is worth at least $20 and even if I sold it at $10 I would have to always be competing with sites like Fiverr who have writers that write for a fraction of what I do. Maybe they spin it or write poorly but maybe people just like cheap work over well done work? 2. Using My Content Myself on my Own Website: Alternative to selling my work to another person I could invest in making my own website and writing about a niche I love. Food, Sports, Healthcare, etc. The issue I have here is getting a real fan base, what if no one comes or it never takes off. I've spent money, writing time, etc in a project that made less money than my Fiverr endeavours. Now that is scary. 3. Get a "real job" Yeah I don't think I could work for anyone unless I was the boss . So What's Next: I'll have to report back to you in the next few days while I think, I really don't know. The Future (no pun intended) Goal: Maximizing my profits and working less. ----- Your thoughts and opinions are always welcomed here. I will add more as time goes on. Thank you, The Future.
