    I haven't done this, but this helps a lot when you have many orders to complete and you are not willing to do all of them by yourself. This will help you gain more reviews in your Fiverr account though actually you aren't doing all of them by yourself.

    In other words...You are thinking about spamming people.

    No this is not a good idea.

    The best way to go about this is by posting classified ads on sites like craigslist.

    You simply find clients on the classified ad sites an hire people on fiverr to fulfill your orders.

    I've already mention this on another post about the risk of arbitrage. People can be very finicky. If you get clients from Craigslist and then buy the gigs from Fiverr, and pocket the difference, just know that people are not like stocks and bonds.

    There's many things that can go wrong. The client might not like the results. The freelancer on Fiverr might not meet the deadline. Depending on the gigs, there might be revisions involve.

    And if you do get clients from Craigslist, some of them might want to meet you in person. Even if you don't meet in person, can you trust them with the payment?

    If you're lucky, things will work smoothly. Just know that people are not like stocks and bonds.

      This is the real world. Of course there could be problems.

      That's life. That's why people need to do their homework and test the method out before trying to conquer the world.

      Any venture that you take has risk and obstacles involved. The difference between success and failure is overcoming these obstacles.

      In the online marketing world...97% don't and only 3% do!

        True, risks will always be part of the game. But there's calculated risks and then there's foolhardy risks.

        There's a big difference between putting adsense and affiliate links on a good natured blog as opposed to dealing with 2 seperate people whom you don't know personally. The first model you have a lot of control over the outcome. The second model, you don't.

      this is bad advice. Fear mindset like this is what prevents a lot of people from achieving success.

      At the end of the day, Reselling services is NO different than ANY other business.

      If you open a brick and mortar business, you are relying on your employees to represent your business well. You're relying on your manufacturers to make the best merchandise.
      You're relying on fulfillment companies and shipping companies to deliver the products on time and in perfect condition.


      No matter what line of business you do, you're going to be depending on other people, and there are many things that could go wrong.

      But so what? You keep moving forward and you deal with it as it comes.

      If someone's not happy with a service you offer with them, adjust. Try to fix it and make it right.

      If the person you hire from Fiverr is slow and doesn't fulfill orders in time, drop him and hire someone else.

      This is how business operates in the real world, and if you live in fear... You'll never make it anywhere.

        LOL, I'm not going to bother to debate this with you.

        Anyone who wants to take the risk, go ahead. Just know, you can make money by flipping gigs, I never said you won't make any money doing this.

        The Fiverr part is not the main problem, although you're still not immune to poor service from the freelancers off of Fiverr either.

        Just know that classified ads could have shady characters and scammers from time to time. If the client renege on the deal or is dissatisfied with the gig, know that it's on you. If he wants back his money, good luck trying to sort it all out.

          Again, that's called LIFE. lol. Sell website design? The client might hate it. Sell seo? The customer might be unhappy with the results and think its all one big scam. Sell an ebook? The customer might think it's terrible and demand a refund.

          No matter WHAT you do online you are going to encounter stuff like that.. But instead of worry about it or let that fear prevent you from moving forward, you deal with it and plow through.

          Again, the same can be said about any business. You can hire employees who miss deadlines.. And if they do, guess what? You fire them.

          It's the same thing with Fiverr. If you pick someone on Fiverr to do your jobs and they miss deadlines, then drop them for someone else. Bottom line.

          There's TONS of freelancer on Fiverr. Many do great work. So there's no reason to settle for someone that is not on top of their game.

          I don't get it. What's the problem? If you get a client who lives in your city, you can meet him if you want. You can go grab some coffee with him.

          And if he starts asking you questions and you have no idea what the answer is.. so what?
          You can simply tell him, "That's a great question! I'll have to ask one of the tech guys on my team. They do all the technical stuff, I'm just the pretty face that handles customer service etc."

          Problem solved.

          Don't want to meet someone in person? Then don't... You don't have to.

          Bro. I've made over $15k/mo reselling fiverr services. I've been doing it for the last 2 years. I spend very little (if any) effort on it..Because truthfully, I make way more money from my main business..

          With that being said, I've NEVER once had to meet someone in person and I've NEVER had any problems with someone paying me.

          Here's a crazy idea - get people to pay you UPFRONT before you start any work.
          Problem solved. (or at the very least make them pay 50% upfront).

          I make people pay upfront. It works great. I've never had any problems with it.

          Occasionally I'll get someone who says that they would rather pay upon completion. I tell them no thanks, lol. Usually they just end up paying, if not, I just say.. next!

          There's nothing to debate here.

          You can make great money by reselling services on Fiverr. You can do it with very little time and effort.

          None of those excuses you came up with were legitimate. I'm selling services right now. I've been doing it for the past two years. I'm averaging over $15k/mo from it. Some months I've done over $25k/mo on it.

          It has been some of the easiest money I've made.

          If personally you would rather do other business models to make money, that's fine.
          But don't rain on this guy's parade and come up with all these reasons why it's destined to fail, when it's simply not true.

    If you use the search tab there is a good thread about Fiverr killing off the re seller of gigs , I dont use it and most are just pirates in some places better off trying something else

    I agree with GetPLRhere,

    There's just too much that's beyond your control to be considered a good business model IMO.

    OK so over 90% of the people on FIVE errors... I did business with last year are gone. Of the near 10% that remain... approx 50% ov those gigs are on pause. Well, it does not look good for the gig economy. Sadly, a lot of people who were great are now working at wall mart making near minimum wage. Hey, that is a lot better than getting $3.92 for one gig. Probably it took you seven hours of hard work - yes seven. Also, the customer is asking for one more revision. Like wow, only one. Maybe, I should just work for FREE and get no pay. Do let me add that Uncle Sam takes about half of that money you earn. Yeah, it is considered unearn income. Government thinks I am playing video games. Just maybe we should get REAL jobs and stop playing games.

    Go to Craigslist and find assignments that people want completing.

    Then go to fiverr and get a quote for that precise project.

    Then go back to your Craigslist advertiser and given them a quote with a suntan still mark up.

    I know people who have done this with animation projects

    You're better off specializing in one type of service and using Fiverr services as add-ons

    Straight reselling can be a hassle

    Value-added reselling is easier

    you work with what you're most comfortable with

    IMO it just isn't enough money to make it worth the time , effort and energy. I think there are much better and more profitable and efficient ways to make money online.

      Thanks, but then what do you suggest?

  • Profile picture of the author GetPLRhere
    Well you mentioned cold calling businesses. Personally, I think this a better idea than reselling off of the classified ads.

    Legitimate businesses can be verified and I would suggest you target businesses with a verifiable physical presence (an office, a real business address, photos of their manager, etc and etc.) and profession. You know, doctors, lawyers, restaurants, auto repair shops, plumbing services, etc.

    If you're in the USA, Yellow Pages are a start, or even Yelp.

    Don't be surprise but there are many legitimate businesses who have poorly designed websites and not too skilled with SEO.
