Working together

Another idea is if you find a service that compliments yours, use extras to resale. So $5 for your gig, have an extra giving them a complementary service with maybe a little extra from you and then you purchase the complementary service from someone else.



It wouldn’t be a bad idea to contact the other seller first, maybe you could work out a deal with them!

I completely agree, I have a friend on here that I would like to sell with but was just thinking of making an account for the both of us… Could be complicated splitting money though!



My friend is not English but can translate a lot to English, I thought she could translate something then I could improve it so the person buying from us is getting for example 500 words translated from their language and written in excellent English.

This is a great idea, especially since most Fiverr sellers are specialized in one area or another. It would be great if there was an option to “Partner Up” and Fiverr provided a percentage split for the profit, like 50/50, 20/80, 30/70, and so on. The sellers could then agree on the options and receive customers together in a “Joint Tasks” space.

It’s too complicated, besides, you could sell as a gig extra something another seller does, yet what happens when your buyer demands a cancellation? Then you also have to demand a cancellation from the other seller. See the problem? It creates a lot of back and forth. What if you work really hard on that radio commercial and you end up losing $4 because the guy you hired to record it and mix it did a crappy job?



More people = more problems. Fiverr has been a blessing in my life because I don’t have to deal with bosses, account executives, producers, seniors, juniors, and all the drama you see in the typical advertising agency. Here I have one client, and that’s it.



Besides, joint gigs are unnecessary. If you hire me to do X, then you can hire someone else to do Y with what I gave you. Why not focus on referrals? That’s what real estate brokers do, they best one know the best restaurants, dry cleaners, universities, amenities, so they refer people to those places and get referrals as well. On Fiverr you can have copywriters refer art directors and vice-versa.



I don’t want Fiverr to keep changing every 5 seconds, there’s new people joining everyday, there are buyers demanding revisions without hitting the revision button, there are people that won’t send you messages within orders. Don’t let Fiverr become confusing.

Reply to @thibstars: Thanks. 🙂 For the record, I’m not against people experimenting and trying different things. If you can figure out how to partner with somebody without losing time and money, go for it. For my own gigs, I see it impossible. For example, I write radio commercials, suppose I offer that for an extra $10, I’m gonna hire a voice over artist to record it. What happens if that seller is late? Or if the client rejects the recording and needs a modification? So for me it’s easier to write the script, if the client likes it, then he can hire the vo guy for $5 or whatever he charges.



By the way, I notice you’re from Belgium, and your name is flemish-sounding, yet you don’t list that you speak flemish. How come?

I offer something like this as an extra.



As a singer, I offer to sing stuff for people, but I don’t write lyrics. One of my extras (on a couple of my gigs) is to arrange for me to hire a ‘friend,’ aka, a talented dude/dudette on Fiverr who is willing to write lyrics.



I cold called a few lyricists here on Fiverr. Most were willing. Only one said no.



While no one has ordered the extra YET, but when they do, it’s all mutually beneficial!
