    Well, at least you learned the hard way.

    Lessons are best learned when you experience the 'pain' yourself.

    You can tell an infant to not touch the hot stove a hundred times...

    But it's until they actually feel the burn, that they learn their lesson.

    (disclaimer: Not referring to you as an infant or anything )

    But yea, fiverr is junkola for traffic

    You could have "tested" this much faster and with much more certainty:

    Take 3 five dollar bills and neatly flush them down the toilet.

    You would have gotten exactly the same result.

    Well, actually a better result: You would have certainty that the money is gone.
    Now you are still wondering whether you got an email list from it or whether
    you should try another email gig on fiverr.

    What were expecting from $5 gigs?

    If you are buying a gig where there is a loophole on how you can get ripped off expect to get ripped off. I bought a logo on Fiverr and all the examples were amazing. When I got my logo it was just the words of my site typed on in Photoshop. Bait and switch. People do not represent what they are actually selling.

      Fiverr is hit and miss in my experience. Like anything, the reviews help give an indication of the results you may get. If a gig doesn't have any reviews, it's best to wait.

      On the other hand I've gotten some amazing voice actors for some videos I've done (as well as a phone system message). But they also had amazing reviews. Maybe you can get that data vicariously!

    Ahhh yes - I just flushed down some five dollar bills as well there. One seller is legit though.

    I had to laugh as I saw bogusemail321 @gmail.com email addresses (different variations with 321 in addresses) flock in. Obviously one seller was trying to make his bogus gig look impressive.

    Never buy a list unless its from a company or 7 figure network marketer with really strong fan base where you can purchase advertising space in a newsletter. Build or scrape your own leads, software is not that expensive and you get a lifetime of quality leads.

    Fiverr is good for certain services...but never buy traffic or leads or anything like that. Like anything, you get what you pay for

    For decent solo ad vendors check out Facebook. Theres a few groups around that have testimonials so theres a bit of countability.

    Truth be told...

    You purchased something infinitely valuable.

    Your own, proven 100% raw data.

    It's the only data you can take to the bank.



    Stay cool

    No one with a high quality list is selling solo ad's for $5.

    There are plenty of good solo ad opportunities around, and I although I really like Fiverr, that's the last place I'd look for solo ad's.

    stay away from the fiverr shortcuts! Anybody who is selling a solo for that price you stay away OK! Start small and test. 50 to 100 clicks and you want to pay between 35 and 100 bucks. Trust me in you don't want to wast your money with lower price ones

  • I had also the same Experience on buying the solo ads from Fiverr all I can say is that they are not as effective as they might look. Though there are many service that are effective on this site except this one.

    I thinks it time that fiverr started checking all those that posting gigs here so as to maintain the value of the site.

    My personal experience is that Fiverr is good for everything except buying traffic, any form of traffic.

    I would like to put it this way. The owner of the list knows the worth of the list, and that's why it's in Fiverr, otherwise he would be selling solos/traffic at much higher prices.

    Don't you think?

    I bought a gig regarding .COM registration in bulk on GoDaddy.
    Excellent service I must say.
    Got my 10 .COM for just $50 in less than 5 hrs.

    There are similar services there.
    Check for the reviews and then order.
    Sometimes even the new sellers are amazing.
    And they easily make their way to the top!!!


    P.S. I was once working on fiverr.
    Made a good sum of money that later became my seed money!!

    the only places where you can buy a solo ad that will do any good is if you pay a lot of money for it. So much that you might brake even or make a little bit. The person selling the ad makes all the money.

    I would suggest that instead of buying solo ad gigs on Fiverr, that you pay for gigs where the seller will post ads for you on Backpage, Craigslist and other classified ad sites.

    I have gotten quite a few opt-ins by promoting my squeeze page on classified ad sites. Outsource your ad posting !

    If you are really wanting to do solo ads, there are some good solo ad sellers here in the WF in this section here

    Good luck !

    I've also tested solo ads on Fiverr, and it was a bad idea. I got 20 subscribers, but I had to delete them, because these were clearly fake addresses.

    Good for you for having the courage to publish the results! The conversion rate for optins, real or not, is woefully low! Do you have the list of email addresses for the optins? Email them with something interesting and valuable and see who replies.

    My experience: Fiverr is a really scary site for buying traffic! I don't even need to flush the toilet here. DANGER WILL ROBINSON!!
