When you resell Fiverr services...where do you resell them and find your own clients?

18 replies
I've found threads on this forum about Fiverr arbitrage and reselling others' services for higher prices...but where would you resell their services? You could make a site, but it could take a long time for it to rank. I was thinking of trying this, but just doing the reselling on Fiverr. And I could promote my own gig using other Fiverr gigs...

If you've done this, *where* did you find your clients? Or did you just make your own site and they found you?

    The most common practice is arbitrage through classified ad sites. You simply either find people looking for a service on classified ad sites or list a service on classified ad site.

    When you get an order, you simply go to fiverr and $5 for them to do all the work.

    In other words...You are not selling anything on fiverr. You are a broker or middleman.

    You've got my answer via PM. I really found a gig niche that I could resell it offline. I found it easier than to resell it online. Good luck.

    I'm wondering now if I should just use Fiverr to make my own products and then sell those for way higher? Like I was skimming, and there's so much to choose from. But an example would be having a postcard design done, and then selling my own postcards on a mini site like Etsy, Ebay or even my own site that someone on Fiverr or whereever can help me promote...and then just having a few sales per day, at like a price of 10-15 dollars would be great.

    Or even web design services. I could have someone on Fiverr make a site and then sell it somewhere or just list it as an ad, for a site that can have very basic changes made to it. But then I wouldn't have to worry about all the back and forth communication from people, about all the customizations they want done. And I could ask if they want help with content/articles...

    And even article writing. I could say I'll rewrite articles, and then just promote that. Or only writing articles in specific niches so I promote the ideas really easily.

    Anyone use Fiverr for making products?

    You can do whatever you want. Just jump in and try it. Experiment. See what works best for you. After all, your results will not be the same as anyone elses. You will not duplicate their success or failure.

    Just a word of caution . . . you get what you pay for. When you depend upon Fiverr for any aspect of your business, you are putting your trust in the very bottom of the marketplace.

      I think it's way easier to duplicate failures honestly. From all of the posts I've seen on this forum...The one thing I hate about offering a service is that the client dictates everything since all I do is customizations for whatever they want. And people on Fiverr can have hundreds or even thousands of reviews and offer higher priced packages on top of their basic gigs. I've been chatting with different sellers, and they seem pretty good overall. Although there is a lot of upselling.

    Oh!!! I've been talking to more sellers on Fiverr and finally ordered a drawing. It was a new seller and they delivered it so fast I got suspicious and googled...I think many people on Fiverr are way smarter than me! They're using free online tools to do their work, like the photo I ordered to be turned into a pencil drawing. There are lots of online tools for that, or you can just use photoshop.

    I just wanted to test the buying process out and I'm happy I did. I think selling on Fiverr will be really easy for me and I want to try now. I just need to google some more on all the different tools. I can outsource and sell in other places or on my own site too, but I might not have to use other people to do it.

    Of course they are using tools - both free and paid. They charge for their KNOWLEDGE - they learned HOW to use the tools.

    You can't expect someone to spend much time working on a $5 project - the seller ends up with less than $4 once Fiverr takes it's share.

    The one thing I hate about offering a service is that the client dictates everything
    Of course - because the client is PAYING you to provide the service. Your posts indicate you have not yet provided any services for payment - so how can you hate anything about it?

      They think it's "easy."

      What better ideas would you suggest?
      Having your own "gig." Promoting products as an affiliate. Building something of value and selling it.

    They're most likely reselling Fiverr gigs on Craigslist or other classified ads.

    This is arbitrage business I would rather stay away from. Arbitraging with people can be much more of a hassle than arbitraging stocks and bonds.

    Let's say you get a client from Craigslist who will pay you $100 to create a poster. You then go to Fiverr to get a freelancer who will do the gig for $5 to $20 bucks.

    Now you're the middleman who will pocket the differences between the client and freelancer. Seems like easy money.

    Until you realize the client didn't like the poster, and then you have to go back to the freelancer on Fiverr for revisions. This could go on for endless cycles. Worse yet, the client on the classified ad will balk with the payment for one reason or another.

    As you can see, dealing with 2 seperate people can be problematic. Maybe some people are making money doing this, but I rather steer clear.

      I'll look into the arbitrage for stocks and bonds, I haven't heard of that before.

    Fiverr is now watermarking all their pictures. In addition, they wont even let you see the finished product unless you have paid for it, eliminating the possibility of revisions so that pretty much ruins ruins arbitrage for gigs that need a picture.

      Not if the client from Craigslist paid you upfront and then you use part of the money to buy the gig off of Fiverr. Once the freelancer completes it, he sends you the preview to inspect, which you turn it around and float it back to the client off of Craigslist. If he's not happy, then you go back to the freelancer for revisions.

      Conversely, if the client from Craiglist only pays in the end, the middleman might take the initial risk of paying the $5 - $25 bucks to buy the gig.

      Unlike stocks and bonds, people are finicky and talk back. That's why I would not want to get involve with that.

    I don't think that was meant as advice - just pointing out Fiverr arbitrage isn't the easy money maker some say it is.

    You can use sites like craigslist to resell services. And also, You can resell services
    locally, by searching google for your target businesses and getting their email addresses
    to email them an offer or an deal.
