Despite these challenging times, Fiverr seen a huge uplift in new buyers joining the platform. Fiverr offers services in every digital category, fit for any kind of business need. They offer different budgets depending on what Fiverr product or service you choose to use. I have already used it so many times and it's been amazing. I have build my website Cloudsdeal completely through Fiverr services.
Since its launch in 2010, Fiverr has grown to 150 employees across offices in Tel Aviv, New York and Miami. For some services, such as adding a YouTube tab on a Facebook fan page or "making a frog talk and say anything you want", a $5 price tag seems relatively reasonable. However, as a freelance writer myself, it’s hard to imagine quality copy for a 900-1000 article that was done for $5.
You should definitely try it once - Order First Gig on Fiverr
I am using Fiverr on a daily basis. I want to share a few of the tips if you are planning to outsource on Fiverr.
Original source IMHO Reviews Fiverr
-Spend some time researching gigs. Find 5–15 sellers that suit your needs.
-Save your favorite sellers into a collection. Separate sellers by categories. This way you will always have easy access to good services.
-Determine the quality of gigs by reading reviews. But instead of reading all the 5-star reviews, scroll down and look for the negative ones.
-Don’t let the “Level One Seller” ranking fool you. That does not guarantee the quality of the service, it just shows that the seller completed a certain number of gigs. It’s much better to work with sellers who have a good reputation.
-Contact each seller and ask for a sample of his recent work delivery. Just to be sure ask what exactly you will be getting for the price.
-Check the quality of work. Don’t rely on a gig’s description or seller’s experience. The seller is responsible for delivering the work he promised. Your responsibility as a buyer is to make sure that the work he delivered will benefit your business/project. In most cases, the seller just wants to make money and doesn’t have your best interest at heart.
-If you have a special request make sure you ask for that prior to placing an order. This way everyone understands what needs to be done.
-Try to be realistic: Fiverr is a great place to save money if you have a limited budget. You are purchasing a gig from a reputable seller for $5 on Fiverr, and somewhere else you would be paying around $20-$25 (and sometimes even more) for the same service. Sometimes it’s worth to pay a good company extra money instead of spending time looking for a reputable seller on Fiverr who will deliver a high quality work.
-I suggest you find a few people on Fiverr that will help you grow your business by providing various services. This process takes time but it is totally worth it. This is a win-win scenario: you know the people you are working with and don't have to look for a new seller each time you need to buy a gig, and the seller is more motivated to do a good job since you have already become a loyal customer.
Used several times (Still using for some targeted gig) .Its worth what they charge $5. You can't expect very professional and mind blowing things at that price. However, there are very good gigs that is very useful time to time when you are in extreme hurry and cant do it yourself + cant afford a lot for that.
Quick tips, to get better result, select extras, that will increase your cost but will deliver better than what you will get at $5.
It's a lot of fun and a good resource though the quality can be spotty. But, what do you want for five bucks. It should really be called $3.82er because after their take and PayPal, that's what the freelancer is getting. I recommend it.
Fiverr is definitely a great website. It creates a win-win situation for both employers and freelancers. The only problem with Fiverr is that it covers various niches like SEO, Music, programming, etc. Niche specific websites like SEOClerks will give more prompt results than Fiverr.
I love Fiverr. I have used them for articles, video creation, Facebook graphics, voice over work, videos, logos and I even had a guy create a jingle for one of my businesses.
I look at the ratings and always read the reviews of the providers. You can find some very talented people here and if you give them concise instructions about what you require you will come away with excellent results.
Every once in a while it doesn't work out but for $5.00 I can accept that.
When I was doing black/grey hat SEO, I used Fiverr extensively for press releases, videos, posting, etc. Fiverrs, SEOClerks, and peopleperhour are all great resources for finding cheap, fast, skilled workers. You can often establish relationships with the sellers who you interact with frequently, and can often ask for tasks that are varied from the scope of their offerings, and they will cater to you.
As with any form of outsourcing, if you are clear and concise with your brief (bearing especially in mind that many of the providers on there will not have english as a first language) you can get some fabulous work done at incredibly good value.
I've had several cartoon sketches done for blog posts - give the problems of being sued for use of unlicensed images grabbed from the internet or the cost of buying 'royalty free' images from i-stock or similar, its well worht paying $5 for a bespoke image that you then own.
Some of my clients have also used it for everything from logo / business card design, to animated videos to data prep, copywriting and all sorts of other things.
I haven't used it but it makes me smile. I'll have to give it a whirl one of these days.
I've used it for intros and outros for my YouTube videos. Just as the others have said: if it's a simple project, you are very specific and detailed about what you want, and you read the reviews before hiring someone it can be a great tool.
Yes - I use it ALL the time. It is a lifesaver. I've gotten some grunt work done (adding industry data to our entire database) and infographics, video bumps/intros and more. Never disappointed.
Hey Imanuel, It's an awesome resource for startups and folks with limited budgets. But as with working with any freelancer, take the time to identify providers that have a good rating and check for the number of jobs in their queue. If they are extremely backlogged it may take a while to get your project done. Also, be sure to review their portfolio for styles and finished product.
If you are looking for very complex graphic work, you might consider a more seasoned designer. Or if you have an existing project that you just need revisions I would also recommend swiftly.com. They are a division of 99designs.com that for $19 you can get your graphic edited.
I've used Fiverr for simple graphics designs, banners, short videos, copy writing, and voice overs.
Please message me if you have any additional questions. Good luck!
I have an account there but I havent hired anyone from there since I have part time workers in the company. Please let us know how it works out for you. Thank you.
I am the service provider there. It's great but site commission is so huge.
1 gig = 5 USD
for 1 gig = 1 USD commission from buyer and 1 USD for seller.
If you hire anyone, you have to pay 6 USD per gig. So developer get 5 USD from your side.
Developer/seller have to pay 1 usd per 5 USD, so he get 4 USD out of 5.
If you sum up all, you will pay 6 USD and the seller get 4 USD only, which is 33% commission they apply. By time, the charm will decrease of site due to higher cost.
Low value gigs, 5er is good to use
High value gigs, quality won't be there
I have used it a couple of times. Although the service was prompt, the result was not as good as I expected. i still want to give it another try in all justice as the product I was selling may not have had a wide enough audience at the time.
I have explored it seems great, let me know how it works out.
I have used Fiverr for some logo ideas. For $50 we got a broad array of ideas that we used to brainstorm.
