A great Fiverr experience

25 replies
Hi everyone,

For my website, I'm having all of my videos transcribed. I tried a transcription service and it was a bit pricey. So, I went to Fiverr and paid a seller $15 to transcribe a 5 minute video. It was ok.

However, I hired another Fiverr transcriber who transcribed, very very, accurately a 6 minute video for only $5. An unreal bargain!!

Is it against the forum rules to post this person's Fiverr page? I have no affiliation with the person, but I'd like to pay it forward by giving her some unexpected publicity

If it is against the rules, PM me and I'll send the link to you. If you guys and gals need a transcriber, she's awesome!

    Sounds like you hit gold.

    There's loads of gold to be had on Fiverr. Some people really go to town with the services they deliver and undersell themselves to the extreme.

    I think you're good with posting a link provided you aren't promoting yourself.

    Nice!

    I've had similar experiences with Fiverr. Between the logo design contests (hire the top 5-10 rated gigs and pick the winner) and the Wordpress developer who is an absolute champ I have most of my website development/maintenance taken care of. And for dirt cheap.

    Kinda makes me crack up when people come on here and lose their s*** that they paid $5 for a poo-poo job. While there are certainly some lousy providers -- but isn't it really like that with everything? -- they are worth sorting through.

    That looks like a great deal 7 minutes for $5. Does she edit and format as well?

    That's one thing I love about Fiverr! You may have to do some digging or trial and error but eventually you'll find someone who does incredible work for such a low price.

    I found a guy who writes great original articles and have been using his service for over a year and the articles he's produced for me are still making sales for my niche sites to this day.

    Congrats on your find!

    Fiverr is not all that bad. Of course, you have to realize that there are a lot of junk services on there as well. Congratulations on your find!

  • I know a person who transcribes 15 minutes of audio for $5.

    I don't know why you paid $15 for 5 minutes of transcription.

    I know many people talk sh#t about fiverr but I have also had great luck. I have used a person to make several banners, headers, etc several times and each time it has been delivered on time and the quality has been awesome!

    There are a ton of great people on Fiverr that just goes to show that niche expertise and geo-arbitrage works well all round. If only it could be applied on a more global level we would all do well from it!

    Wow, congrats on your find!

    I have had similar experiences on Fiverr so I keep going back for more. Although I don't need verbatim transcription (I don't need the "uhh" and the "ehm", etc) which is why my go-to person is the lady in my signature. She formats the text beutifully and is a joy to work with. I actually feel bad for paying her only $5 for all that.

    I've also had similar luck with other sellers so right now it's either Fiverr or Elance where I outsource smaller tasks.

    One thing you might want to consider though, is trying to contact them outside of Fiverr since there is no guarantee that they're going to be there tomorrow. I've had this experience once; the seller had sold her account and I had no means of getting hold of her. That was a real loss.

    But don't ask for their emails explicitely as that is against the rules. I usually attach a word file with the question inside or something like that. Works wonders and by now I have a small network of contractors that I can reach anytime.

    Anyways good luck with Fiverr in the future,
    Mike

    I am a freelance writer and my first offer was to proofread and edit 300 documents for $5. I haven't touched the site since then and have assigned their emails to be sent to my spam folder.
