What do you guys think of Fiverr?

23 replies
Hey, I'm new here! How are you guys doing?

I just wanted to know if you think Fiverr is a good way to make money. I enjoy writing and I have a few gigs up on Fiverr regarding that. I have made a little money but not as much as i would like.

Have you had much success with Fiverr? What kind of gigs get the most buys.

Cheers!

    Look at my signature
    Fiverr is my first online money income source. I really love fiverr.
    However, my gig is kinda unique. So, for the question :"What kind of gigs get the most buys." --> i think it's writing, design and seo service

    If you are good in writing, there are some place where you can make money through writing, not in fiverr... Earnings in fiverr is just a fraction of what real writers are earning....

      I got so much business writing sales letters on a whim that I had to drop it. I didn't have time to write my own sales letters which would make more money that what I was charging at Fiverr lol.

      I think Fiverr is a good place to develop your skills and gain experience, then move on. If you're gig is product oriented no big deal. You can attach ebooks and software all day for five bucks.

      We agree it's just a drop in the sea what you can make inside Fiverr.

  • You can leverage fiverr for outside business, you need to send them a PDF attachment that says "to work with me outside fiverr contact me at ________," that way Fiverr won't know.

    I think Fiverr is great!

    It's awesome and there are lots of funny gigs.

    The SEO stuff is not good, except bookmarking part..

    I have ordered several video gigs. I think its the best paid gigs, because you pay 5 bucks for half a minute/1 minute.

    tumichael - moon dancing gig? Why not.. lol.. RESPECT!

    You can just be original. Absolutely love this "mad gig":

    Samcornwell will make a crude 30 second video ranting and raving angrily about anything you want for $5, only on fiverr.com

    I wrote a Fiverr guide and sold it as a WSO. Fiverr is something I have been doing for some time with good success and it's a great way to make money even today.

    Now of course I'm an established Fiverr seller already so it's a little easier for me to make money. The start may be a little slow, but believe, once you start getting orders and start receiving positive feedback, it's like a tsunami. You end up getting more orders, more feedback, more happy customers and eventually more money coming into your Paypal account.

    The key on Fiverr is to come up with some unique. Be creative, don't be hesitant to differentiate yourself from others and that will increase your chances of being a successful Fiverr seller.

    I have 2 gigs on fiverr which provides article writing service and I make some decent money from then. I get at-least 1 order everyday so 150 and more per month.

    If you like writing, you're in the right business. I would recommend that you start a blog or become a ghostwriter, where you do research and write for other marketers or open your own private label rights store. You have a number of options available to you. Blogging via affiliate marketing is the most common of the methods mentioned. You could actually start out with ghostwriting and then move into something that provides residual income down the line.

    Remember, you can save time and money buying gigs too... some great time saving gigs on there... I recently had a load of graphics resized and cropped... $5 to save me over an hour's tedious task! no brainer.

    If you want to make money on fiverr... there are warriors on here who've perfected the art... your gig needs to take very little time, and be in demand... there's so much competition on there... it's v tough now.

    I think good video review gigs will always do well...

    Writing gigs don't do well.

    SEO, youtube views, fb likes, twitter followers do very well

  • Fiverr is good, you can also use it to monetize your talent and skills. No matter what your gig are it doesn't really matter if no one will use your service. But if you think it is a good one then go for it.

    If you want to write articles or ebooks and even reports why not join up with guru.com or elance.com and bid for gigs. If you choose projects that say they are interested in a long term relationship you will be able to move off those sites to continue working for them, thus saving the fee. Some of your clients will be happy to do a direct deposit to pay you, others like to pay through Paypal, which will cost you a little in fees. This is how I started and now write for clients in Australia and the US on a permanent basis.

    Thanks so much for the response! I do like Fiverr and I am a level 1 seller, its just that I can't seem to get even one gig a day. I have had a few clients buy a lot of my gigs but I enjoy doing them and I get them done fast. Is their any other way to get my gigs bought?
    I have done 20 gigs so far, with no negative ratings.

    Had great success some months back selling courses on fiverr...

    Been involved more in CPA lately.

    But yes, you can make a lot of money using fiverr if you know what you're doing..

    Especially with the low labor cost there...

    Cheers,

    I`m working on fiverr for almost two months. First month revenue : 1200$. This month i have a redesign project for one website - I`m charging 400$ and i can do this in one week . It`s the half of the month and i have 800$ already ...

    So ... Fiverr is great . You need to deliver quality services not only something that you can do in 5 minutes .. Chek out my gigs to see what i`m offering .

    One of the best means to get things done perfectly is via fiverr. We have a large stream of talent available there & avail us work at a very affordable pricing.

    I do outsource there & go with verified providers there to do things like squeeze pages, sales copy writing & multiple SEO activities
