What about other sites like Fiverr for selling services?

19 replies
I just signed up for Fiverr and want to start adding some services but was wondering if any of these six other sites is worth using as well.

Fourerr.com | The $4 Online Marketplace
Where outsourcing pays off - Fivers World
Twenty Fiverr | www.goferr.com
NetTradR | Home
Zeerk.com - Where people make money from freelancing services!
http://www.justafive.com

I have actually signed up already but do not want to waste my time if they do not really generate orders.

Any thoughts?

    Fiverr is the most popular website in this market. I suggest you focus on Fiverr in the beginning. If it works well for you, then you can try the similar websites.

      Hi ThunderC I can tell you as an owner of a microjob website gigtask.com that although fiverr is big there are over 200 fiverr like websites which are active and the top 40 atleast are doing well. Fiverr might have more like 20% but the other micro job sites have advantages like quicker payment times or lower commissions for the sellers.

      Usually the owners are more eager to please both the buyers and sellers. On occasions I have settled arguments between buyers and sellers by giving both a refund to the buyer and a payment to the seller. And as an owner I have purchased many of the services on my own site both as a service too me and the seller.

      Try some of these fiverr alternatives, you will be surprised.
      PS one of the biggest selling gigs on my site is the list of over 200 microjob sites by Oksanna.

    Most of those are just clones quickly made by inexperienced people, stick to fiverr. If you are really wanna go big, you need your own site anyways.

    Depending on the service you are providing, perhaps consider something like elance.com or freelancer.com? As the others suggested, I would skip the ones you listed.

    Yes, indeed. As you have to remember, Fiverr was first thus, Fiverr has far more users than the second in line. It is just like Ebay.'

    I think Fiverr is the best place to stick to. Once you are comfortable with that, then you can progress and try out the others. Don't spread yourself out too much in the start.

    Clones rarely do well (they lack the novelty of the original idea to get people interested). I haven't had success with Gigbucks.

    Fiverr is ok and everything. But I've never understood why people use it. Except maybe the need of quick cash.

    Why don't people just take the time they are putting into Fiverr projects and transfer it to a project where they can make some real money in the same amount of time needed to earn the chump change being made on Fiverr.

    I have spoke to Fiverr's top article writer and they have made about $8000 from article writing in a year or so I think. In a year you could have multiple decent product launches and have built a pretty big list.

    People need to start focusing on the big picture.

    This isn't aimed at OP or anything, just a thought I had.

      Before using fiverr as a seller, I had never recorded voiceovers before. Now I've done over 40 gigs and made about $130. It gives me a great way to practice my voiceovers (which the clients are very happy with) and I love doing it.

      The bonus is that their expectations are low, and now that I've decided I'd like to do this a lot more, it is providing me great demo material and testimonials from my customers.

      Hope this gives you some insight into why some people don't mind working on fiverr

      It's also a confidence booster after having other methods of making money online not work so well.

      Cheers,

    Start with Fiverr...it's the most valid of these kinds of sites and will be the most reliable in actually getting paid. The others are iffy and are run by less experiences teams/people. Stick to Fiverr, get it to work, then venture out.

    Hope this helps!
