Anyone try using the site Fiverr?

    I have just created an account with Fiverr and had an idea of a service I could offer that takes very little time for me. Opening the relevant software is likely to be the most time consuming, and it don't take all that long!

    It is an unusual service I will be offering and would love any advice or tips people have for creating my ad. I probably want to think about keywords that will increase my chances of being found in the first instance. Does anyone have any good tips or advice?

    No one with any tips or advice? sad
    Well I guess I will just have to muddle my way through or find info elsewhere smile

    (been reading hubs but mostly they seem to be basic reviews of how easy, fun and whatnot the site is to use)

      If it works out well I will probably do a hub on it. smile
      I would like to work out the seo stuff that works best with ads to be sure to get gigs (and as such, get paid).

    What is the service?

      As someone above said, the payments per gig is not huge. As such I have racked my little grey brain to think of a service that I can offer that takes around about 5 mins to actually do. I have 2 different ways of mapping an image to create a fractal image, with either program it takes longer to actually open them, and render the image after being mapped to a fractal parameter then to play with the parameters. As such I figure I could play with peoples pictures for between 5 to 10 minuets to earn $4. If I got enough gigs to do an hours worth of work that would work out at $24 for an hours work. I have also set up a gig to randomly generate abstract and/or geometric works of art (this takes me about the same kind of time). Both display examples of the same that I have done for myself plus any warnings (to do with restrictions on what I can and cannot do). Bellow are the 2 examples smile

    I've used it a few times and honestly it's like stealing.
    You get $5 for a job completed and when you reach $10 they send you your payout,only after Fiverr takes their commission and paypal takes their cut.
    I think I received 7,56 after that...
    now if you're looking for someone to do projects cheaply then maybe its worth a shot.
    but remember you get what you pay for.

    I use Fiverr but only as a purchaser. I have never sold anything though I might consider adding a gig soon.  If you want to post gigs for sale then find someone there that will make you a video opening, use it to post your gig offering on youtube and other video sites. It's much better than writing articles and planting keywords and backlinks.

      Since my gigs so far are visual and to do with art, perhaps using a site that can make videos from jpgs. I know of a site, animoto that is supposed to do the job free. I may have to go have a play soon smile

        I have used animoto- I love it. The free version is very short-here are examples of both pay for and free versions:

    I don't have paypal, if I had I would certainly use it.

    I have used fiverr as a buyer and the process was fairly smooth. A good situation can occur if you find clients that need repeat work and can contact you for future projects.

    I used fiverr to contract for a couple of services. The site and program worked great...the services...well not so great.  The people did what that said they would do, but it did not produce the desired resultes...increased traffic to my website.

      Oh yeah, he did, I think I read it even a while back but totally forgot, wonder if I still have it on one of the computers or not hmm. If I deleted it or lost it accidentally I probably could ask to download another copy smile

    I've bought services and sold on there and it's alright. I've developed some SEO clients from simple cheap services. There are definitely some aholes on there though, some people don't realize you're not going to put in a full days work for their $5.00 so make sure you explain what you're doing for your gig as best you can to help avoid bad reviews.
