What Do We Get For A Fiverr? A-ny-ting You Want.

Is it me or has the introduction of Fiverr really set off a huge rush for micro job websites? If you’ve yet to experience the awesome that is Fiverr allow me to explain: Fiverr is a website where people will post random jobs and do each for $5.

Fiverr Alternatives & More

Already there have been thousands of listings from tweetings articles, creating design work, recording audio, producing video and much more all for just $5 a pop.

It didn’t take long for this idea of micro job websites to catch on and now we’re seeing quite a rise in competitive websites just like Fiverr.

The following are seven micro job websites where you can earn an additional $5, $10 or $20 doing simple jobs of your choosing.

Fiverr

TenBux

GigHour

Zeerk

GigBucks

UpHype

FittyTown

What are all these micro job sites and how can I make money from them?

Here’s the basics of each of these websites:

  • A person can place a micro job for the certain amount each website offers $1, $5, $10, whatever
  • Micro jobs can be virtually anything people want to try selling (design, consulting, etc)
  • A client can buy these services, alert the seller and have the job done within a few hours or days
  • Everyone wins

The main appeal of these websites are that they’re quickie freelance job boards. The large freelance boards require long signs up sand project details but this gets right down to the essentials so each job can be done in a relative short amount of time.

But the real question is “how do I make money with Fiverr and other micro job websites?“. Here’s a few quick tips:

  • Offer something unique. Everyone has begun to post the same type of jobs because these websites are becoming so flooded so your job is to find the one thing you’re great at and what makes it unique in comparision to the others.
  • Post on each board. Just because Fiverr has the lion’s share of traffic related to this niche doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from posting elsewhere – in fact, post the same job in another marketplace! You may as well try because you never know when a client may bite even if the same service is offered for less (or more) elsewhere.
  • Show some proof. Have someonthing to offer? Show how you’ve done it before – especially the benefits. If you’re talking about how you’re going to tweet their message to 100,000 followers – show a screenshot so people can see the process.
  • Don’t over-do it. Just because you have a flurry of clients in queue doesn’t mean it’s worth the time. Really ask yourself if this small pay is worth it in comparision to going after a client which would pay more for just a bit of extra time dedicated to the project.
  • Make it templateable. People aren’t coming to Fiverr and other micro job sites for the best they can buy – they realize they’re getting quick, cheap work. Create templates out of everything you do so you can maximize your time when doing each task.
  • Work on your copy. Your title and ad copy is what’s going to get you the job – keep experimenting like you with with a great headline or advertising message until you’ve found one that converts – then, keep testing!

Most importantly, keep trying out different jobs. Over time, each job is going to become saturated in the market so re-craft each of your jobs with something unique and with the times – always tell the benefits, not the techical jargon that people don’t really care about.

Learn How-to Make Money on Fiverr

Fiverr has evolved quite a bit since doing this overview.

The basics I’ve covered still stands as they are the cornerstone of marketing and promoting freelance services online.

But … if you’d like to get up-to-speed on what’s working within the Fiverr community than I would highly recommend you take a look at the Make Money on Fiverr course over at Udemy which covers many different learning modules with over 49 lectures and over 5.5 hours of video content.

Want Your Own Fiverr Clone Site?

I figured that if you’re a tech savvy entrepreneur you can see the potential in starting your own Fiverr clone. Well, best hurry because they’re popping up all over the place. Hint: Maybe you should try to build a niche job site – the major categories are already covered by most of these already.

Would I recommend starting your own? Not really. The marketplace is already saturated and unless you think of some way to market the hell out of your Fiverr clone site it’s best to just move on and keep thinking of that next big idea.

My own thoughts and experiences

When I first heard of Fiverr I went over and checked it out. I posted a few jobs (one being “I’ll do nothing for $5″ – that didn’t go) but one that I did see an amazing amount of feedback was creating promotional videos for small businesses.

I’ve created promo videos for businesses before but I was a bit rusty starting over so it turned into hours for the first few videos – I didn’t like the final rate that I’d be making so I closed the listing. Although, you could make a killing if you set up systems and templates to do these micro jobs.

On the flipside, I recently decided to test out being a client. I bought one of the listings which would tweet a few links to 100,000+ followers – the results? Meh. It gave a small, noticable bump overall but it really wasn’t that much. It could have been the article I had the person send out but I expected a little more feedback than what I got.

Overall though, it was a fun experiment and worth the $5 just to try out Fiverr from a client end.

Final Thoughts (I’ll bill ya $5 later)

Fiverr (and its many clones) can be a really great way to make money online. From my own experiences with it there can be a rush of clients but you always have to ask yourself whether your time is worth the small pay.

If you believe that it’s better to at least make a few bucks in the afternoon when you wouldn’t otherwise be doing so than go ahead and take advantage of these sites.

    I’ve been using Fiverr in a way that most have probably been using it already: write something, get immediate feedback, improve the writing, and earn the money. The side benefit of this loop is something I wasn’t expecting when I first signed up: a larger money-making scheme.
    My job was about researching and writing a short article about anything. I was contracted to research a web hosting site, with the promise of many more to come if I want them. Well, when I started to look into this little project, I discovered that there was a wealth of poorly written, hosting review sites out there. All of the hosting sites are eager for the money and offer great affiliate programs, too. It may be something I look into starting up in the coming weeks. Not entirely sure yet.

    • Murray Lunn
      August 25, 2010 at 9:49 pm #

      That’s a really great way to look at it James – when we write our own articles we get to choose the topic which generally stay within our niche but when it’s client work you open yourself up to a whole new world of opportunities to discovery niches which could become profitable if you take the chance.

      It would be great if you let us know about your progression if you move on with the project – best of luck!

    Hey…I have to say right on time..

    It might be more beneficial being a client in one of those websites…rather than looking for a job. Well if I can save time or can outsource some of the things I do…for 5 dollars – 10 dollars….Very well worth it…

    Thank you Murlu…

    • Murray Lunn
      August 25, 2010 at 9:50 pm #

      Agreed Adam,

      What’s really cool in the client side of things is that you generally get the work done in a relatively fast amount of time and don’t have to worry about bidding and screening a lot of clients as opposed to freelance websites. If you know exactly what you want done you’re pretty much sure to find someone doing it :)

  4. August 25, 2010 at 1:14 pm #

    Great idea Murlu. I recently came across Fiverr too and it’s a great place to get to know people. I mean the $5 won’t be really worth your effort still you will get to know a lot of potential customers.

    • Murray Lunn
      August 25, 2010 at 9:53 pm #

      Certainly Julius – $5 isn’t much for most people but if you can get it down to a template I’m sure it pays off quite well. As for the client side, you hit it on the head – just because you did one small job for them doesn’t mean you can’t contact them later to continue the jobs; you could turn a $5 one-time task into an ongoing client and side income!

  5. August 25, 2010 at 3:19 pm #

    I am definitely going to have to go make a fivver work post like this now:

    Me searchy searchy real good; me search you long time
    Me Google 5 Dolla

    • Murray Lunn
      August 25, 2010 at 9:54 pm #

      Both sides of the site really has a lot of benefits:

      If you choose to do tasks you can make some decent money in volume.
      If you need small work done, you can get it fast and cheap.

      Even as bloggers there are small things that would greatly help our own blogs; consider if you need a quick design work for a promotion or contest you’re holding – instead of spending hours working on it you could find someone that does it for $5!

      If you do check it out Steve, please let me know what you thought about it :)

    Could you outsource jobs to a VA, so you’re making a slice off the money that is paid to the VA?

    I’d never heard of Fiverr until a few weeks ago, as you say now there are loads of them.

    i think it’s probably best as a client, as you aren’t going to make a fortune from this.

    • Murray Lunn
      August 25, 2010 at 10:51 pm #

      I actually had that thought just this morning and I’m sure people are doing so Matthew.

      It makes sense too – if you were to, say, offer an article for $5 – you could have your VA write it for $2, Fiverr takes $1 and you’re still up $2 :) If you had a flood coming through it could be a good way to essentially become a middle-man of some sort.

      Agreed on the last statement – you’re not going to get rich but it can add up over time. In terms of people that are going after their own business; the client side is where it shines.

  7. August 26, 2010 at 3:02 am #

    Since I don’t monetize my site, I might go ahead and do something like this just to earn some extra cash. It’d be a great way to start up different projects.

    I’ve seen these sites getting more hype on blogs and generally around the web, but I’ve never tried it. I may very well go ahead and sign up later this week (When I get some free time).

    Thanks for sharing, Murlu.

    • Murray Lunn
      August 27, 2010 at 11:53 am #

      That’s a pretty great way of going about things Joe.

      And, if you think about it, you can still keep up the integrity of your website by earning money elsewhere. You know how it goes – you put up too many ads and your readers begin to feel “ehhh” because it feels like you’re just hammering them with ads.

      That’s not to say you can still monetize but you’re doing so much work just to have them bounce away for pennies on the dollars.

    Great Post Murray.

    I’m hearing so much about fiverr. I really like the idea of $5.
    Going to check out all the websites;).

    Thanks for sharing this great Post as always.

      It’s definitely worth checking out Dev – even on the client side you could find a few jobs that could really help out your blog or projects – plus, some of them are just fun :P

  10. August 26, 2010 at 10:18 pm #

    WOW!!! Thanks for the sharing of these sites. I only knew about fiver. Gonna have to check out the others cause the people at fiver find it hard to spend the $5.00 at times. :(

  11. August 26, 2010 at 10:32 pm #

    I guess most Fiverr clone sites can’t make a difference if they don’t make investments to promote them online.
    For me, it is not easy to earn some extra money there because $5 is really low.

    • Murray Lunn
      August 27, 2010 at 11:58 am #

      It seems that the people that are making a killing on Fiverr (such as the guy I tested out with Tweeting) had all of it semi automated.

      Basically, you sent over the tweets you wanted, he’d set up autotweets at certain times and then just sit back. For a few minutes of work it definitely adds up for him.

      For people that are doing the larger tasks, many jobs won’t make up for the time invested but hey, if they’re willing to do it and find the pay acceptable than all more power to them :)

    I tried fiverr, uphype and gigbucks. I would have to say the only two that are reputable are fiverr and uphype. I think all the others are Indian third world companies. A bit of advise, make sure you buy from a seller who has a lot of positive feedback (like ebay). I have had some really good success from fiverr and uphype for driving traffic to my website and adding fans on my facebook page (had my facebook fan page go from 26 to over 400 in one day off of a uphype job). Not so much with gigbucks. Have fun. for less than $10 it’s often worth the cost. Plus it’s fun!

    • Murray Lunn
      August 27, 2010 at 11:59 am #

      Wow, that sounds really great on the Facebook side of things.

      It reminds me of an experiment I did with Facebook ads to drive people to a fan page. Ended up being about $10 for about 25 fans so in comparision, uphype seems to beat it hands down. Gives you a lot of great ideas to play around with small tests before launching a larger campaign.

  13. August 27, 2010 at 3:11 am #

    I have used Fiverr for a few small jobs here and there, like SEO stuff, submitting to search engines, etc. As the person hiring, it’s low pressure and doesn’t take a lot of up front time. I don’t see it being worth the time to offer services unless you use a script or some other automation – or US$5 is a lot of money in your country. I haven’t heard of the other services but I will have to check them out!

    • Murray Lunn
      August 27, 2010 at 12:01 pm #

      Exactly right Jennifer – the client end is where it shines and unless you’re running scripts or automation it’s going to be a little difficult to find that $5 is a great return on your time.

      Although, there are also little ways you can make more on the backend which is really great.

      Let’s say you’re going to write an article or two for them for SEO and backlinks. Well, afterward you could contact them and include a service where you spin the article and autosubmit them to other directories – then, you could do an automated bookmarking service.

      You could turn a single client into one which you upsell over and over again :)

  14. August 27, 2010 at 1:25 pm #

    Murray,

    That’s crazy that you have a posting about fiverr. I just read an article about it last night and was planning on check it out today. I had no idea that so many of these sites had popped up.

    Thank you for sharing all of these sources. They’re great.

  15. August 27, 2010 at 1:30 pm #

    Sweet list here Murray. Kind of like another possible portfolio connection. I love it that you got the title in line with the picture. At first I did a double take because by e-mail it didn’t make sense until I saw it on your blog.

    I haven’t tried Fivrr but already there’s some Warrior forum ebook on it. I saw it floating around somewhere on one of the forums. Hopefully, there are moderators around keeping these sites in line as it’s really easy to fall into scams when cheap work is posted.

    • Murray Lunn
      August 27, 2010 at 6:28 pm #

      Definitely Thu – there really isn’t much to the whole process other than just going for it so I’m not completely sold on a Fiverr book – hopefully these tips are enough to get you started until you find your own unique selling point :)

  16. August 27, 2010 at 2:29 pm #

    Murray!

    First off, I p-i-s-s-e-d myself and almost fell off the chair before I even opened the post. That TITLE!!! When I tweeted it I was very tempted to change it to read that, sooo funny man! (still sniggering as we speak)

    Brilliant resource you have provided here, as Joshua said above – I literally found out about fiverr the other day and now THIS. Awesome man.

    Also, I just came over from your comment at FamousBloggers because I felt a comment like that deserved a response here.
    Mate – I really do appreciate your awesome feedback, kind words and generous applause. What I can say happily is that it means a whole lot more coming from you. Why? Because YOU do exactly those things, and you have demonstrated it again here perfectly. There is personality, humor (oh man I love you long time for that too) and you actually go and DO the things you write about, so we can see first hand whether or not its for us or not.
    Awesome Muzzah, really freaking awesome man!

    An-y-ting ahahahahaha, that title is so not sucky sucky.

      Haha, I’m glad you enjoyed the title – I’m sure you can see that the URL and title are a little bit different for SEO reasons but overall it’s a trade off – go for seo or get something that peaks their interest – I went with the later this time :P

      Thanks for all the kind words and I have to thank you as well for so much inspiration on the backend side of Murlu. I’ve got some big plans from a few posts you’ve done recently – going to turn out amazing if everything works out :)

    Interesting I haven’t really looked into any of these although I have heard about them. The title was catchy and good content. It would be interesting to do a comparison of the different sites and see how many options each one has, the type of customers, and the type of sellers.

  19. September 2, 2010 at 5:11 am #

    I am using them for sometime and I am really satisfied with Fiverr. What i do is post gigs in Fiverr along with contacting people who posted suggestions in the job board. Some of them became my clients outside the Fiverr network and they paid me more than the usual $5. So, In my opinion Fiverr is a better place to get more clients.

    • Murray Lunn
      September 7, 2010 at 9:25 pm #

      Thanks for the input Sathish and great job about keeping the clients for the long run. It’s really like any type of business contact you make online (eBay, Amazon, etc), you generated the lead, made the sale so technically the customer relationship data is yours so you can later contact them for additional work :)

    • March 5, 2011 at 1:06 pm #

      The whole discussion has been a great input to me.

      I initially started with Internet Marketing, in due course , learnt many skills , now i have become a specialist in handling aweber , mailchimp.

      I was trying to get jobs on Odesk , succeded somewhat. But it was fiverr, which has really given me breakthrough. I have started work , and also appreciation from clients , which have become my friends from all over the world. Is it not fantastic to have them ? It IS for me.

      Murlu , I just wanted your advise on 1 aspect :- How do I promote and tell more & more people that I am doing this work on Fiverr ?

    i am totally new as a ghost writer and started out on job boards like v worker ONLY at the end of June. i have great feedback on there. i have one client that i work for now writing the news. i am learning this now. he introduced me to fiverr just last wed.

    it is incredible the response i have. i started with one gig as i had no time working other jobs and made it to 5 gigs to see what would work as a break down. yesterday, sat, i made it to 10 gigs and holding.

    there is so many fees on the job boards and i do this full time. at $100 on a job on V i lose $15 every time and $3 min. every time and you have to fight to bid on jobs when you start.

    it may be only netting $4 for me, but to come off a job board and not bid & fight, and say here i am please hire me, wow!! my hit counter was amazing because i marked 3 days to get a job done because i do not work weekends. i LOST money. so i changed it to 1 day and i had to run back and change to 2 days. because even though i state don’t work weekends they still go through.

    i can type a brand new article at 500 words between 30 min and 1 hour as i type 80 wpm!

    by wed i will be sitting at $125 minimum. jobs are still coming in. this is a literal Godsend!

    i finally had a chance today to see if there is any other sites and found yours. Thank you very much for the information!

    this is saving so much more than the job boards actually putting money back into my pocket.

  24. October 17, 2010 at 6:38 am #

    I have used fiverr.com four times now and from an end user standpoint it has been very good. I will start offering my own search engine optimization (SEO) services myself soon.

  25. October 19, 2010 at 1:38 pm #

    My main reason for using Fiverr or a similar site like Fiverr is that I do search engine optimization for clients on a local level. But I like to offer my clients more than just straightening out their on-page factors like meta tags, h1 tags, keyword density and so on.

    I like to create web2.0 properties for them and put original theme related content on those sites and then strategically link them where I want. So…with that said,

    I HATE setting up new web properties! It’s time consumming and dips into my overall profits and takes away the joy of working from home when it feels like work.

    So I found a gal that will set up 8 web2.0 properties on sites like wordpress, blogger.com, blog.com etc and sends me back all the login details such as url, username or email and password.

    It saves me tons of time not having to do that myself and for 5 bucks is totally worth it.

    That’s just one way of project managing my outsourcing to save me time which in essence saves me money.

    Just sharing to the conversation.

      Wow Mark, that’s such a great example of Fiverr being used properly. I too hate having to slog through setting up all the information because if you can just pass it off for $5 in comparison to taking a few hours doing the entire thing, that’s money in the bank.

      You gave me a few good ideas with the comment as well; thanks for sharing. Would love to know if you had any other experiences with the service that you’d like to share.

  26. November 6, 2010 at 5:52 pm #

    I have used Fiverr many times over the past few months and just utilized the reviews of others who used a particular gig to get an indication of how effective it was. I particularly like the tabs at the top of the site once you have selected the general area on the right. That way you can target what you want. Also the search box is pretty effective. I am pleased with the service. Thanks for the other sites!

  27. November 7, 2010 at 6:37 am #

    I tried Fiverr about a year ago and my Gig just sat there, so I didn’t do much beyond updating it to stay live when they emailed me. Recently I found an ebook that got me fired up again, so I enjoyed reading these comments.

      Inspiration from ‘Full Metal Jacket’ – love that movie and when I was writing the post, the scene immediately came to me.

    Hi Murray,

    Fiverr is a great place to make some quick money, the only drawback is that you will have to wait 14 days to withdraw your money. If that wasn’t the case, I would be offering more gigs and getting more orders.

    Hello Murray,
    your doing a great job here. I have used fiverr since February last year till now which i’m making over $40 to $7o every day writing articles for clients. Example: “i can write/copy writing of types of articles, write two articles for $5 with a minimum of 300 words.”

    i can post your 30 written articles for 30 days for $5 to your blog/website.

    fiverr can help any body to start making money online, if you know what to do.

    keep it up Murray

      Awesome Aniefiok!

      I’m trying to scale my business so I’m trying to avoid doing the smaller gigs nowadays but lately I have been going back to look at Fiverr as a viable source of lead generation. I was thinking of offering a $5/5 PLR pack on the site because after someone buys I could lead them to additional opportunities that they could find from my other PLR offerings :)

      The most important action is getting something rolling which you’ve done. From here, you can begin to scale it up and really make an empire!

    It looks like you don’t have any gigs on Fiverr now, Murray. I hope this means you are very busy with other work.

    I hear the “14 days” objection a lot but it’s really the same as when you start a new real-life job; you usually have to wait that long or longer to get your first paycheck. You tolerate that because you know there are more coming.

    It’s the same with Fiverr if you work at it. I was looking at one lady’s gig. She’s sold more than 400 of them. It’s an ebook she wrote that apparently is so useful none of her buyers have repented of buying it; indeed, they all rave. So the orders keep coming in.

    So there’s a challenge: Create something really good that a lot of people will want.

      Hey Charleen,

      I certainly need to jump back into Fiverr but this time look at verticals as well. Doing a 1:1 service thats customized isn’t worth the time for me especially if it takes more 30 minutes at this time. The trick is to find that gig that WILL produce over and over again or become a lead generation magnet. Although, I do like Fiverr for some of my projects like graphic work when I don’t want to load up PS at the time haha. Thanks for bringing this back up.

    First, i want to thank you for taking the time to share this great info with us.

    Few years ago, with a friend of mine we asked a question in a well known forum “What would you do for $5″ we were so surprised to see hundreds of people post in our thread. I told my friend that it would be a great idea to start a website where people could post jobs for $5.

    He thought it was a good idea but we did not have the right programming skills to start a project like that. we tried to hire few programmers to help us with the website then give up after we spent over $200 without getting nothing accomplished.

    After Fiverr came along, i email my friend and told him about Fiverr, he was both surprised and sad at the same time.

    The point is, it does not matter what kind of ideas one has, what matters the most is how you can get your ideas to work and how fast. And I also think it matters a lot how fast you can get a project going.
