As far as I’m concerned, Fiverr has a major identity problem. I go to Youtube and I see the same annoying Fiverr Pro ad. I never used to. This means Fiverr is throwing money at advertising during the pandemic. However, I come to Fiverr and every writing category there is, is saturated with garbage DA50 and DA99 guest post gigs. Most gig descriptions are plagiarized. More importantly, NONE of these people are legitimately capable of delivering what they say they can. It’s so impossible, it’s absurd. I even get at least weekly messages from these sellers asking ME to help them out. Here’s one from today: That said, many of these SEO and backlink wizards have the cheek to charge $100+ and way over. This results in Fiverr having a bit of a problem. They are running an ad campaign that assures people who likely haven’t ever used Fiverr before that Fiverr is home to real quality freelancers. If you want to argue and say "but the ad is only for Pro sellers," that’s fine. However, people new to Fiverr are likely not going to appreciate what that means. As it is, when buyers some here, it is hard to see where the real quality is thanks to all the nonsense. Neither can all buyers be expected to know what is nonsense and what isn’t. As for the argument that competition is healthy, I don’t see it as applying. This is mainly due to the high prices many new sellers are charging. If anything, selling in some categories is now just a game of luck. Imagine you are a taco salesman in an outdoor market. You are popular and successful and people who didn’t even know what a taco was yesterday start trying to copy your sales pitch. Before you know it, when people come to the market, all they see is taco stands. You might be the only one who can really make tacos. However, you have no way to prove this to your target consumer. You just have to hope they decide to try one of yours over one of your competitors. In real life, this can’t happen. You can’t have 100 extra taco stands appear suddenly because that involves other people investing in a stand, supplies, etc. However, on Fiverr, someone can copy your gig description which is equivocal to your taco stand (or someone else’s) and have their business up and running in a few hours. To make matters worse, you and your competitors are all fishing for customers who might not have ever had a taco before and don’t really know how to judge the quality of what they order. I don’t really understand the hostility in this thread. However, when you discuss topics like this, you inevitably get the same kinds of people jumping on them. In either case, the short answer is that competition is fine when your competition is competition, not 100 or more people who just say they can do what you can but are really just copying what they see as the most successful gigs on Fiverr. I also feel fiverr has sorted some of your stated points by pushing best seller and 5 star rated to the front line.
