Outsourcing is one of the core components of every serious business. As a business owner you simply don’t have the time or money to hire all kinds of people, especially if you need some services only temporary/project based.
Freelancing is a very popular way to make money on the internet. I am sure many of you know freelancer.com and similar websites.
Why is Fiverr.com different?
Being a fiverr service user, I think that the website is a lot more user friendly, then other freelance website. It is a lot easier to find what I am looking for. Other freelance websites are full of service providers, who live in developing countries, and this is why they can offer their services for such a low price. Fiverr is also full with these people, but you will often find US and other people, offering services that others simply can’t do: i.e. voice recording.
The other important aspect is that Fiverr is hot right now, and everybody is on fiverr. For me asa customer it’s better if there is competition, because competition always leads to better quality.
What services to offer on Fiverr?
I have the feeling that the most popular services are SEO/linkbuilding services. If you own scrapebox, you could scrape your own 20.000 auto approved list and offer a commenting service on Fiverr. Some of the freelancers have 5000+ sold gigs.
Always go with what works best for you and what is the most popular. If you offer something unique, you may have less or no competition, but you may also get fewer customers.
