It's well known that Fiverr is used to be a famous source of outsourcing for many marketers that spend hundreds at it.
But, I have noticed that everyday more and more sellers are increasing prices for no reason, well, they have a good reason and it's because they know their time is valuable.
But is it not suppossed to be a place where everything cost just $5?
Don't misunderstand me. I think that's ok that some people charge what their work really worth but this is something that is killing Fiverr's own business as to my understanding.
First you have to pay the extra $0.50 per processing fee. Then sellers are selling less for $5 I.E. before, some fiverrs offered to make a video reviewing a website and it cost $5 and lasted 1 or 2 mins. Now they offer only a few seconds of video per gig and of course you need to purchase many gigs to get at least one minute of video .
The same for other gigs, like web maitenance, logo design, voiceover, etc.
While I think that charging more is good for sellers, Fiverr still keeps the 20%, plus the exceeding of processing fees tough.
The only that remain at the same are SEO gigs and article writing.
I am seeing less orders for some gigs and Fiverr being not a place where you can spend only $5 anymore.
Are you marketers, buying the same volume from Fiverr?
Do you think that Fiverr is killing its own business?
