I am inquiring as to how one is able to get a gig completed on Fiverr? It is interesting the amount of sellers that will contact when you post a request. I noticed that about 20 replies will repond, after another 8-10 hours of sorting through “the requirements sir” “hello sir” “sir I can do your job” that the reality is that HTML is so advanced that a gig cannot be completed to add a simple line of code for a PayPal button on ones site. I am now 14 hours into communicating with sellers to complete 1 a landing page (I was promised original last night and was delivered a template 🙂) and
2 sending all my HTML files to a seller to 1) Add the paypal button to my site that “sir I cannot complete this job” The problem is that the guy knocked on my door for the work Actually both of them did knock knock, knock knock, and now I have 1 a template for a website that is not original. (Found it free last night), and 2 a crap ton of Html People that “sir, I cannot do the job”

Any suggestions on how a buyer on Fiverr gets their work done?

I am all ears because when we buy, we tip 100% of the time, and leave a 5 star for 5 star service. Also 1 x we have left a one star when we bought sales copy, that was found word for word on the internet when checked in copyscape. This too was a hard decision but when you got money and good money on a job and you are promised orginal you should not find your article unspun and matching that of #3 on Google for that niche’ Just my $.02 question? Love Fiverr, but thinking my team can’t get work done anymore on here…

My advice would be to try and find someone by searching, and a little research. It may cost you a little in time and in trying sellers out but ultimately you’d end up with sellers who are your ‘go to’ for jobs big and small in various areas.

  1. Know what you’re looking for in a seller: professional? good communication? experience? good understanding of English? has no negative reviews? responds professionally to negative reviews? specialist? variety of skills?
  2. Shortlist some sellers that interest you (say 5)
  3. send them a message with a brief (smallest job you can think of)
  4. See how they respond. Order. See how they deliver.
  5. If happy with some sellers, try a bigger order. Remember some sellers do great on smaller/simpler orders but not on bigger orders. Be prepared for this.

As @lloydsolutions said, I would suggest using the search function and filtering sellers in that way. As a buyer, I have never had any successful orders through the Buyer Request function.

Any time I posted a request I got responses that were made up of the following.

  • 50% of responses were sent by people with multiple accounts with the same message and different prices
  • 25% were from people who had not read the gig and just responded with a generic offer of being able to anything I wanted.
  • 10% were from people who were offering something specific but nothing to do with what I wanted
  • 10% were people who had a template response
  • 5% were people who could potentially do my job but their profiles and gigs did not fill me with hope.

Using the search function, I have a 95% success rate with my orders (over 160 orders).

Hey guys and gals. Thank you this is great infrormation. I appreciate it. Like eoinfinnegan says, not worth the time posting in requests, most are copy paste. The thing that frustrates me I guess is you let someone know exactly your requirements. Here was mine

I need someone that can link a paypal button to my html sites. See I know nothing about that stuff. I got 20 replies, Answered question after question after question and then get told sir I cannot do the job, please find another seller. ??? In reality, I have a file called an index.html. I know that was my website. I see a nice image I wanted to use as the paypal button itself but getting there I don’t know how to do it. I am not kidding you when I say I am that wrapped up in my few requests, that is sad, Fiverr is easy to make money on and get repeat customers. Why is there an issue with getting a seller to sell a gig. I am not a bad person. I shower daily, I tip and my team has left reviews almost a mile long with Five Stars. Time is valuable and shouldn’t be wasted trying to get a job done. You either sell gigs and the service or you don’t it should be that simple. I assure you I will follow your guidance and thanks for the engagement on a Sunday 🙂 You guys are great!

Your profile pic seems to be a hit on a ton of websites on men's hairstyles. Why not use a picture of yourself instead of taking one off the internet to use?

How come you think that isn’t me? That seems rude to say something about someone you don’t know?

From a Seller’s point of view the Buyer’s Request area is a waste of my time. By the time I’m over there to scan for jobs 20 seller’s have already replied. I take the time to customize my responses, read the details of the Buyer’s description, if any, and only then do I reply.
As a Buyer I search for the service I’m looking for, check reviews and ratings, go through the portfolio and then reach out to 3-5 Seller with basically an RFP. If they don’t speak english well enough to communicate in a message, then they are excluded.

To me its not all about the ratings, it’s more about communication and if they have a portfolio of work I can review.
