Is buying Fiverr gigs to tweet out affiliate links to thousands worth it?

34 replies
I recently read a book called "The Laptop Millionaire" by Mark Anastasi where he suggests you can buy Fiverr gigs and tweet out ClickBank and Amazon affiliate links to thousands of Twitter followers (which is where buying the gig comes in) and make some fast money.

Assuming the Fiverr's out there are top rated with good feedback, do you Warriors think this is a viable strategy?!

Go easy on me I'm an IM amateur (clearly!)

Thanks

    Anything is worth testing for $5 IMO. I doubt twitter traffic will get you 'fast money" for clickbank products, but for $5 you won't lose much for trying.

    There is only one person that makes money from something like this, and that is the seller selling the gig.

    There are all kinds of Fiverr gigs where the seller will blast any type of message -Twitter, Facebook or some other network. I seriously doubt that you would get many CB sales that way. You might get lucky, but most people don't respond well to affiliate links. You would probably do better offering people a free gift to collect email addresses. On the other hand, it only costs $5 to test it if you're curious.

    They tweet to mostly empty accounts, if I knew I could sell tweets that would produce money I wouldn't sell it for $5

      That's because it's nonsense, most tweet gigs are from people who are following 100k people so 50k could follow them back.

    It would be better to use a landing page so that you are at least getting some backlink juice and whatnot, or even a twitter account, for the gigs and then use it as the starting point of your sales funnel.

    No, the best way to do it is to buy gigs that post links to your squeeze page or...your fiverr gigs.

    This is what I did to get started and how I found out...it can work miracles, lol.

    Don't link them to your affiliate product (probably won't see the results you're hoping for).

    Also look for the gigs where the guy is touting REAL followers and preferrably has some proof to back it up.

    Look for raving testimonials.

    Hope that helped and the best of luck.

    It is always worth testing, but I have not had good luck using fiverr gigs for social media advertising.

    There were a couple of sellers who were faking tweets with fake screen shots for non-existent twitter accounts, but others were real accounts with real tweets.

    Given my experience promoting anything -- even cpa offers and sites that I just wanted traffic -- I would never again do a social media blast from a fiverr provider. But that does not mean that my experience will be your experience.

    I would recommend looking for a good CPA offer and then having them tweet it. If you can only make 10$ that's a 100% roi. And that's only 10$. I think it won't work for a paid product, you might get lucky if someone was already looking for something like it. They might also buy if its a low pricepoint product, because then its a quick buy. Cpa is an easy sale because requires no money for the person, I would recommend trying to test many fiver providers.

    Does the gig involve blasting out a naked CB url or are you going to be using a redirect link? If you think about it, the difference between these two methods are HUGE.

      Doesn't really matter, fiverr twitter traffic is about as quality as adfly traffic. Buysellads sells twitter blasts that can range in the thousands, from real active followers. Fiverr twitter gigs are about as useful as tits on a bull.

      When it comes to twitter redirects - I saw some data recently that showed bit.ly to be the most commonly retweeted link shortener...

      Just something to think about

      Cheers,

      Give it a try, using only high rated users

      To be honest I don't like too much twitter to do IM, I have some accounts with thousands of real followers but the ppl hardly click on the links I tweet.

      Basically ppl on twitter just like to read their feed not follow links

    I've never had any real success with Fiverr, I always say that you get what you pay for, and if getting a return on your money was so easy everyone would be rich right?

      That's a pretty broad generalization, considering how many thousands of gigs you can get at Fiverr. I don't have much faith in things like Twitter blasts myself. However, I've gotten some good services there as well. Book covers and logos, for example, can be surprisingly good.

    I've tried one of the best Twitter services on Fiverr, but I got maybe 1-2 clicks. The tweet was sent to hundreds of thousands of people, so it was a horrible result.

    Twitter converts really bad even if you find a good seller on Fiverr who tweets to a real account. But I had some nice Facebook promotion gigs there which worked quite well (depends on your niche& campaign of course)

    I've tried this with both Twitter and sharing with Facebook followers, sending traffic to a squeeze page - but both with zero results. And IMO sending this sort of traffic straight to a sales page is even less likely to work.

    I wouldn't waste your money IMO ..I have 3 twitter accounts with around 5,000 followers each and have yet to see a single sale as a result of tweeting affiliate links.

    I really wouldn't bother with Twitter messages through Fiverr. Unless you get really lucky, you've just wasted your $5. Even if you do get lucky, you can't exactly scale up the traffic from this technique. It's not reliable.

    If someone has a Twitter account that actually produces results, why would they spam it for $5 a pop. They would tweet their own links and make much more money.

    Fiverr is good for some graphics work, basic videos and writing. Traffic generation and backlinks are mostly spam, or ineffective.

      Not worth it at all.

      I would never sell a status update (on Facebook) for $5 knowing that my sales make me between $35-$70 a pop (obviously depends on the product)

      Even if sales were, or weren't consistent.

      So if the person was making sales them-self...

      I don't see many reasons why someone would sell that opportunity for $5 unless they knew they weren't getting any sales out of it.

      Unless, of course, they are a nice person :rolleyes:

    Most of those twitter accounts are fake. Your $5 will just drain out.
    I once took a similar gig which promised 1000 followers. It was good for 2 whole days and the very next day the followers were gone.

    Funny this came up, I tried this just last week as a traffic experiment more than anything to be honest, I was willing to part with the five bucks to know the results.
    I used an old domain that I had been just sitting on for some time with an EMD for the product, spruced up the page(direct sales), reset the counter.
    The gig was for a 2 separate mentions on 2 sites. 2x facebook 15k likes & 2x twitter 10k followers.
    The text tweeted was a simple pitch and my exact url, not shortened.

    I received 28 page hits and 0 conversions.

    I also noticed that the people offering the gigs seem to be posting a lot of them, therefore your 1 line of text sinks fast and most people probably disregard a person who only pumps advertisements all day.

    Yeah, the key is not pumping out ad links, but instead do targeted tweets.

    One of the most POWERFUL methods I've discovered is to first setup a twitter feed for people tweeting stuff like: "I need money" (go ahead, see how many people a day are tweeting that) and then you respond to those people with something like "Amen... since you tweeted this you really might want to check this out [insert shortened link]" and see if you get bites and/or retweets.

    I used this method pretty successfully to not only build followers but get shares and opt ins just fine.

    Hope that was helpful to you all.

    I`ve did a few of these in the past as a part of a little fiverr "project" I had..

    I made money but the ROI wasn`t very good.... In about 100 gigs I had a ROI of 10% or something...In my opinion...It isn`t worth the hassle....

    If you take a look at the twitter accounts they are using,you can see that there tweets get overloaded with affiliate offers.....

    Haha.

    I used to tweet on Fiverr; about a year or so ago I had someone reply to one of my gigs and say

    "I had you promote one of clickbank's best products and I didn't get any sales. You must have promoted it wrong, I will wait for you to promote again, and for now I hold my review" or something to that effect.

    Yeah twitter is not the best for pumping out affiliate links. There is always a possibility you will make a sale or two though. Interacting with those people looking to make money before tweeting your squeeze page is probably the best strategy.

    If money can be made this way (and it most likely can), wouldn't you think the owner of the twitter account would send his own affiliate links out? Would they rather get $5 or however much they claim you can earn?

    Here's a simple method of sending out affiliate links to targetted traffic:

    Search twitter e.g. "best green powder" "?"
    Find people asking product questions, and say something like, "Hey Sandra, I've been using SuperGreen for 4 years and its amazing. I get it from bit.ly###"

    it aint gunna work. I had an email from one of my student 2 weeks ago. He spent $210 doing this, and I was shocked he did not stop sooner when he worked out one simple thing....

    He was selling a fat loss ad to accounts where people had other intrests, like pets, gold buying, golf and other stuff.

    Let me put it this way, if you had a dog training product and you put an ad in a golf newsletter, how many people are going to go to your site and optin or buy your chit.....i would say 0%

    I would say stay away from this, unless you have say a dog training product, and a facebook twitter account with users craving for this stuff. But that would be about 3-4% of matches....so I would stay away from this, it is a waist of money.

    Most of the time, no. If it was worth it the sellers would be doing it themselves instead of selling tweets.
