Over time I have discovered you can get good work done by Fiverr sellers for ridiculously cheap prices.
Currently, I split my time between working with offline clients and maintaining a handful of quality Amazon product review sites that I've developed.
If I tried to do everything on my own, I would be pulling out my remaining hair. It's easy to slip into the trap of trying to do everything yourself.
Maybe you prefer doing everything yourself. Learning new skills such as CSS and HTML coding may be part of the lure for you. After all, these will be skills you can use over and over once you have buckled down and applied yourself.
Or perhaps your budget is really tight. That's understandable.
Chances are though, you will spend a day doing something that could have been outsourced easily on Fiverr.
The tradeoff with Fiverr is the seller turnover. Here today, gone tomorrow.
Also, sometimes a Fiverr seller will not do a quality job for you. In general, I have been pleased with the vast majority of work done for me by Fiverr sellers. Over the last 3 months I've purchased 105 Fiverr gigs.
The key to finding the best Fiverr sellers is utilizing a Hiring a Fiverr gameplan and adjusting your expectations.
For all those who have been disappointed with buying Fiverr gigs in the past, here's my simple 6 step Hiring a Fiverr system.
1. Never consider Fiverr for a soup-to-nuts solutions (all comprehensive).
For example, do not expect to find a comprehensive SEO backlinking solution for only $5.00, or even $10.00, or $15.00 on Fiverr. Set your expectations accordingly.
2. Specific task completion is where Fiverr excels.
Is Fiverr a solution for all tasks? No, but you will be surprised how many time consuming tasks you can outsource to a Fiverr seller.
3. Play around with different keywords when searching for a Fiverr seller.
Example: I needed a Facebook fan page done for a client. My initial search was:
facebook fan page
Too many results to sort through! Then I tried a few other searches:
create facebook fan page
make facebook fan page
design facebook fan page
Each of the above searches yielded a much smaller set of sellers. The lower quantity made my job of choosing a Fiverr seller much easier.
4. Sort by Ratings
This puts the higher rated gigs at the top. Of course, be sure to scan through the positive reviews and see if a seller has an overly high number of gushing reviews from one buyer!
5. If you are under a time deadline, give the job to multiple Fiverr sellers.
I've done this and it has saved my bacon. One seller didn't deliver at all, another delivered terrible work, and a third seller did a fantastic job.
6. The first time you use a Fiverr seller, only give one job.
Only after the seller delivers a quality job should you buy more. No buying of multiple gigs upfront!
