I take a lot of pride in what i do i could not for the life of me offer most of the work done by Fiverr selliers. I hear it is possible to make several thousand dollars a month on 5er! HOW and WHY…is all i can say, i would have been happier to have gone out to several 5 star restaurants rather than purchased the 500 or more gigs in past about 4 or 5 months on 5er virtually all IMPORTANT work, that is stuff i NEED done for my business is either not done well or cancelled. The non essentual stuff is also 95% plus horrible. I toss all of it. I decided i make new rule that never more that 5$ again to test them, and before that a detailed free contact and if that goes poorly i go no further. God such awful Photoshop must be some para el cheapo PS ld iike program that is basically SHIT. Fiverr is not alone, disgusted w 5er horrible quality now i have tried out Elance and O Desk and the only thing different is they SCREW more $ from me and do evn worst work i thought of outsourcing to India or Philippines NO WAY JOSE …NEVER NEVER NEVER i go off line write kindles get a friend to upload and anzthing else having to do w internet business ■■■■ it all i so broke if could have been in far better financial shape had I dont NOTHING I DO MEAN NOTHING it is not that i work for FREE it is that i spend 16 hours olnine a daz and LOSING MONEY i sick of paying to work and working so hard this is nuts.

As a writer/blogger for people I know exactly why a lot of work is so SUB standard. The reason is that you have people who are trying to do work they are not trained to do. When it comes to article writing the majority if not all of the work requires good basic English grammar. It doesn’t have to be perfect but there is something very easy to notice when a non English speaking person writes an article. If you look at some of the grammar in this blog/forum you can see what I am referring to. It’s not a crime, I would be horrible at trying to write a blog in another’s language/lingo. It’s just the way it is. So, this is one of the reasons some outshine the rest especially when it comes to writing which is a big part of the Fiverr deal. So, my suggestion is to look for signs when communicating with potential buyers/sellers and make a determination with what you see or read. It can save a ton of headaches! Dave

I don't understand. Why would you keep buying so many gigs over so many moths if it was all terrible?

On the flip side, Fiverr can be a great place to hone your skills. Nothing is perfect but I don’t think there is another site that can promote your services at no cost. Fiverr does take the marketing problems out of the equation you have to admit. You do get what you pay for though and buyers can be a huge pain in the you know what, especially ones who have no clue how things work at first. I received 21 emails in 2 days from one potential buyer. I finally had to block him. So, yep like all things is life, it’s a juggling act.

I utilize Fiverr for my online business and it’s great, but you need to know how to use it. In the online world one key rule is over deliver on your product, and a lot of sellers do. You just need to find them



Here are some tips buying from Fiverr.


  1. Research what you need and who is the best in selling it.

  2. If you are buying from a buyer who has little to know feedback on their page, communicate with them before placing the order. Be specific what you want and when you need it. Make sure you both come to an agreement. This will avoid a lot of cancellations and late work.


  3. When work is delivered, check it. Make sure the work is what you both have agreed upon. Don’t expect miracles.


  4. Know how to ulitize Fiverr services. Example, I want an article written for a niche blog that i get over 10, 000 views a month. Am I going to pay a writer $5 to write about something they have no clue about, or am I going to pay a professional writer with a proven background in my niche?



    Lastly, don’t expect Fiverr to be your only source of labor for your online business. You will fail.

I understand the point you're trying to make, but Fiverr marketing doesn't add up to much. The problem for individual sellers is that Fiverr marketing is designed to drive traffic to the site, period. Not to any particular gigs. Traffic to individual sellers (or gigs) is non-existent for 99.99% of sellers 99.99% of the time - and that's a huge number of people who use the site.

 

Even Fiverr ads don't direct to individual sellers or gigs (they even use stock photos in the ads). They use the "I'll create your logo for $5" headline to make it seem personal, but link to the logo category. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that, just that in order to make a reasonable amount of sales, each seller needs to do their own marketing off-site.

Fiverr is like real life, YOU are responsible for who your are dealing with. No need to post such an immature and frustrated post but grow up and learn to choose better. I met some really great artists and other well skilled other people who are helping me a lot. I’m working on a website project and spending $1,500 on Fiver gigs only and it’s great, normally this would have cost me between 10-20k.



It seems I am better in judging sellers then you. Some is great and a lot is not, and there are enough ways to learn if a seller is serious and hard working or an unskilled lazy crook, and I met some of them as well. But I learned fast and not making many mistakes anymore, almost none. That is what I learned in a month and I did not have to make 450 mistakes first.



PS did you already discover the refund and dispute button? It’s easy. 😉
