Which gig on Fiverr gets you the maximum value?

38 replies
Most gigs on Fiverr provide good value for money though some doubt the quality of the gigs. But for 5 bucks you can't go wrong!

For those who use Fiverr or browse through it often which gig have you come across or used that provides maximum value for your 5 bucks, and why? (Please don't put down links of the gigs - just describe them)

    I still think creating money making blog gigs are the best for investment.

    There's this one guy on there that creates landing pages. He's REALLY good too, very talented people on fiverr. You have to sift through them though. I also got another designer from fiverr as well and hes a real winner!

    I got top 5 rankings for 2 keywords using SENuke gigs and social bookmaking gigs. Those guys at Fiverr know what they do and offer value all the time.

    You say for $5 you can't go wrong... The problem is you can!

    For example: If you use fiverr for SEO gigs it could have a negative impact on your ranking and therefore dent your traffic which will directly impact your income in most occurances hence you can go wrong with Fiverr.

    I do think Fiverr is good for graphics/logos/videos/voiceovers however.

    Be VERY careful with Fiverr that's all.

    I just use fiverr for the easy stuff I know I can do but don't feel bothered doing.

    Don't use fiverr for something important. Don't use fiverr for marketing.

    I think it would be proof reading my copy. Most of us are poor at catching our own errors. Well, I am poor. Also, drawing logos is a good use of your money... Most firms charge $200 or more. Folks, that is a lot of green. Best gigs tend to have a waiting list or queue. That is a great way to find some super gigs.

    From all the responses I have until now...

    Money making blog gigs - do you really get complete blogs for $5?
    Landing pages
    SENuke
    Social bookmarking
    Video creation
    Logos
    Voiceovers
    Proofreading

    What about edu backlinks? I think those are good too.

    I found some guy from Moldavia and I think his name is crockservice!
    In fact this is probably a team of people behind this username.
    This team provides building backlinks service,
    and they have a huge number of positive marks!
    I have success with ranking my YouTube videos using their service!

      He/They actually run a full service now: To The Top With Rocket Speed - CrorkService

      They have packages for full on SEO so you don't spend loads of little $5 but have a way of getting a full package.

      Still wouldn't use it though lol. I just think this form of SEO is now out.

      I'd have to go with video creation. A lady with a gig there did a nice job with extras and the work was very good. Had a good computer content writer when I was in the laptop niche but he took down his gig after a while to my dismay. Apart from him -- did not have much luck with content gigs

    It would be "anything you struggle with yourself."

    Everyone will have different answers. I personally can't design a graphic to save my life. Or make a book trailer that's worth a darn.

    But I bought 1 Fiverr gig book trailer that was awesome.
    I bought 1 Twitter graphic that wasn't worth using as toilet paper.

    So it's hit or miss (and the bad one had huge ratings and great feedback).

    But others might not be able to write at all, so a gig of content would be perfect for them. Whatever you're desperate to get help with.

    You're right Tiffany - to each his or her own! I was thinking that there may be an overwhelming preference for a particular type of gig on Fiverr.

    I do come across one plus one free gigs and find them good value because you get 2 gigs for the price of one.

    I was searching on Google on how to create a cover for my ebook. It would've taken awhile to get the hang of it and create one of decent quality.

    Found some people on Fiverr offering to do it for $5, chose the one I liked best from the examples/reviews, and ordered.

    Very much worth the $5.

    For me it's been transcriptions (of my videos), article writing, proofing content I write, and YouTube views (just started this but pleased with the results).

    I've tried some graphic design gigs but all have been sub-standard. I guess I haven't found the right person yet.

    I think it would be great if we could have some kind of "best of Fiverr" thread. We all list our favorites so we know who's good (or at least others had great success). Is there a thread like that already? If not, we should have one!

    Oh gosh do I love fiver. I mean I am seriously obsessed with fiver. It took me a long time to learn how to use it the right way, but I use it every single day now.

    A $5 investment on a youtube video I made 4 months ago wound up getting me on CBS and getting our business massive exposure.

    All from a fiver gig.

    I wound up tipping that guy an amount I won't disclose here, but I was very happy to say the least.

    I usually spend on average a couple hundred a month on fiver.

    I'll list some of the gigs I use, only because I use too many and it would take too long to describe them all in depth.

    1) Slow saturation of youtube videos for 2 months with thousands of natural views, likes, subsribers, and 60 custom comments (I didn't mention the view count/like count on purpose but its a lot).

    2) Spinning a 1-500 word article into 200 articles between 60-90% uniqueness. This is a gig I order at least once a week.

    3) Spin an article and then submit to 1200 article directories (use this for all my 2nd tier links, and yes I check peoples work out before ordering from them)

    4) A specific backlink package that I use on something that can not get penalized by google. But still feeds lots of link juice to my site (most backlink gigs are crap but this one delivers slowly and delivers a lot to something that can't be penalized).

    5) Video testimonies from 1 specific guy who is extremely good at doing natural testimonies. I had to try out like 10 different people just to find this 1 guy. And no its not banjoman15. His videos actually killed my conversions lol (although he's still a talented actor imo - just not a marketer).

    6) Wordpress problem/fix. I'm always ordering gigs like this to add more functionality to free themes, rather than buy premium ones.

    7) Wordpress hacking. I usually hire a hacker every so often to break into my site and tell me whats not secure. Although I found this guy off fiver I don't use fiver anymore to pay him. Its too cheap and security means too much to me. I just know that he's really good at what he does.

    Then there are a bunch of other gigs I use that I'd rather not talk about.

    Between fiver and scrapebox its amazing how much work I can get done. =]

      Fiver has to be my favorite site by far. Its the one site that I can dump money into and always have it come back at least 10 fold. Although I did burn a few hundred finding/testing all the good gigs, it was more than worth it in the long run.

      Fiverr can be great for some things. I would shy away from any seo on fiverr though. If your not experienced in the field then you could end up hurting your rankings.

    /\ I know what you're saying but I don't use the backlink gig like people would expect.

    The backlink gig on fiver I only use for youtube videos. I do it this way because I've been able to rank a lot of videos (with the combination of slow views/slow backlinks) without getting penalized. The videos rank high in google, then I link them to my site.

    I would never do that to a 2nd tier blog, or directly to my site, but for some reason youtube videos don't behave like blogs or websites. I've just never had one get penalized before. Even before I started using this gig, I was blasting my videos with thousands of links (using scrapebox), and they'd never get penalized. They would just wind up ranking high in google.

    -Red

    ps. I'm sure at some point someone may have gotten their YT videos penalized for too many backlinks, but I've never seen it in my own experience which is why I continue to do it.

    Graphics for sure! I've saved 200% and still got the same great quality and I'm so grateful for it. Not to mention I got my work in half the time...too awesome!

    I'm gonna experiment with having others write for me...web content and emails to encourage more clicks. It should def be exciting, but fiverr is a great source but it does take a bit of skill to weed through the great gigs and the junk. A lot of folks sell PLR or just plain junk they do themselves. With time, you can however spend the $5 for you and/or your biz.
