If you’ve never visited Fiverr.com, you really need to go check it out. As a judge, I sometimes have to hire help with marketing, database, programming, website issues, YouTube, proofreading, writing, etc. I learned to visit Fiverr.com (Fiverr) first.
Signing up for Fiver is free and fast. They are integrated with PayPal, easy to navigate, and most importantly, there are all kinds of people willing to spend $5 doing all kinds of things.
The economy is making more people willing to do more to make a dollar or a few dollars. I’ve never worked at Fiverr, but I’m sure the people who did the “show” there didn’t get all 5 bucks. Fiverr needs to make money and even PayPal needs to get their share.
I’ve hired Fiverr staff to fix HTML errors on the site, create YouTube, help with programming, create logos, write articles, proofread articles, and help with marketing. If you want to do SEO marketing on Fiverr, you usually get a job worth $5. When you order other stuff, you usually get a dedicated person who helps you quickly more than expected at 10 times the price.
Fiverr has a rating system where you can read reviews and comments about past “shows” someone has completed. Many performances are interesting, “I will make my cat sing Happy Birthday” or “I will write almost everything on my forehead and go out in public in 24 hours.”
However, most shows are serious: “I’ll help you fix your PHP problems” or “I’ll debug your web page” or “I’ll post on your blog”. There is nothing illegal or obscene on Fiverr, but otherwise almost anything can happen.
The best thing about Fiverr is that it’s fun. Their website is easy to browse, easy to order and no website is more interesting than searching to see what people are spending $5 on.
The most surprising thing about Fiverr is the quality of the people running the show for $5. Fiverr does its best to keep people from communicating outside of their system, but many consultants get a lot of long-lasting and profitable customer introductions from their $5 show.
Fiverr is the best place to find consultants, weird stuff, suggestions and help me with many tasks. Your risk is only $5. I never got burned there, although sometimes I only received a $5 worth.
Have fun with Fiverr. Ask someone to sing, or ask someone to do something – they’ll notify you when they find a match. It’s very easy to sign up and work for Fiverr – if you have a skill or product that people are willing to pay $5 for.
You won’t get rich jobs for Fiverr, but you can have a lot of fun, make some money and get good potential customers for your future business.
Why Freelancers Should “Gig” Micro Job Sites Other Than Fiverr
Basically, a micro job site is a “quick freelance job commission”. Freelancers (sellers) offer many different services and buyers come to shop and buy these services – it’s that simple.
The first and most famous micro-recruitment website was Fiverr, launched in 2010. On this website you offer a service (service) for 5 US dollars, and the buyer only needs to buy it for 5 US dollars. You complete the work and get paid $4 when you complete it. This idea is very popular and has been reported in well-known magazines, news programs and websites.
The bad news: There are now tens of thousands of merchants competing on Fiverr, and it’s nearly impossible to grab attention there. Even if you strive to stand out from the crowd, you may be too vague to be noticed by buyers. A painful, almost impossible balancing act.
The good news: Because of the ingenuity of this simple idea, hundreds of micro-job sites have subsequently sprung up, improving on Fiverr’s original idea, offering more variety and options, and giving freelancers a better chance of making money.
In addition to Fiverr, you should use other micro job sites for the following reasons:
Greater flexibility in performance pricing
There are some stores in Los Angeles called $1 Stores, $5 Stores, $10 Stores and even $5/$10/$20 Stores have trash cans, you can choose your price. They are quick and easy. There is no need to check every price of the product. The same concept applies to micro job sites. You can do the same with your show – choose your website or website/trash bin to get the price you want, add your show and you’re done. Buyers for the price they are willing to pay and… instant bullseye.
Offer sellers better conditions
When you sell your show on Fiverr, you have to wait 14 days (the so-called clearance period) after the order is delivered to receive $4. One dollar goes to Fiverr-20%!
Other micro-recruiting sites offer an alternative to Fiverr’s $1 flat seller fee, which is based on a percentage of sales and is less than 20%. Some people even say that if you register with them and click a button to add a Facebook, Twitter or blog link, as long as the link is valid, you don’t have to pay anything. Other websites that offer a fairly short clearance period and even have instant payment.
So take a look at the many different styles of the seller’s terms and conditions and choose one or more that suits you, similar to a mobile phone plan. As these sites become more creative, they will continue to evolve.
A better chance for sellers to succeed
If you list your achievements on many micro job sites, your chances of getting noticed will increase. Even if your service is offered at a lower price elsewhere, buyers may not find a lower price and get a one-stop service; there are too many performance websites now that buyers can’t buy them all.
But the great thing is that you only have to visit each site once, post the show and you’re done; the focus of these sites is on speed – without the tedious registration jokes you find at large job sites.
Therefore, get rid of the dilemma of staying only on Fiverr. Go to many other micro job sites to earn money!
