Fiverr offers a huge variety of services or “gigs” starting as low as $5. There are potential opportunities here for small businesses seeking services or looking to market them.
Last week, the site celebrated a milestone saying it has facilitated two million gigs worldwide.
Services Available on Fiverr
You can find all kinds of services on Fiverr. Some offer you a professional business logo design or a short video presentation for just $5 and could be a great way to try out new talent.
Others, like an offer to get you 1000 Twitter followers in a day (Yup, we actually saw one like this) could easily land you in trouble with your social media platform.
In a recent email, the Fiverr team shared some basic tips for business owners both buying and selling services on the site.
Tips for Using Fiverr
First, when posting services, break down gigs into smaller tasks you can easily do for $5. You can then add additional services at a higher cost.
Second, be sure you set a reasonable delivery time. Repeat and new orders will depend very heavily upon on-time delivery.
For businesses seeking services on Fiverr, developers recommend paying close attention to the rating (a percentage based on other customers’ satisfaction) and the votes members have received. These could be indicators of how popular they are in the community and also their credibility among other users.
Also check comments and feedback from others who have experienced their work first hand.
