I have a similar idea like fiverr but different in so many ways. What would you recommend to do to start acquiring and maintaining those first users?
Forget about “build it and they will come.” Products without scalable distribution channels will fail to gain traction. Instead of hiring an expensive marketing team, take this course to learn SEO, content marketing, retargeting, viral loops, email marketing, and sales funnel optimization.

Hey Martin. There are a lot of threads already on building marketplaces.

I'd suggest just googling "build a two sided marketplace" and spend the rest of the weekend reading. Many smart people live their lives answering this question.

If there's a more specific question, you'll probably get more valuable advice here.
