Fiverr Alternatives And Different Choices

Fiverr Alternative

Ever since Fiverr was introduced, it wasn't long before people were looking for a Fiverr alternative and other sites like Fiverr. It's not that the concept was bad, but no matter the platform, it's not always going to please everyone and coincidentally there are always going to be ways to game the system too. This is in relation to what may be fair to the seller and it may be in relation to what’s fair to the buyer as well. However, alas, there are “always” loopholes to be found, discovered and exploited and Fiverr was no exception.

New systems, technology, social media platforms, promotion platforms and service websites is a good thing for all of us. It provides an opportunity for anyone to come in and take something pretty good and popular and make it better for the masses. What’s that thing they say.. there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. The same couldn’t be any truer for websites like Fiverr that have either cloned the website or decided to come up with better versions of it.

Fiverr lauched in Febrary 2010 as an online marketplace that was pretty ground breaking as a marketplace where people could buy services for a measly $5. Literally it became this highly appealing online smorgasbord for services. Services in some categories that you would have to pay hundreds of dollars through traditional means to acquire those same services and now through Fiverr would cost you a fraction of what you would typically pay. It’s appeal and popularity went through the roof. Fiverr was truly on fire and people were eating it up like hotcakes.

Websites were starting to sprout up coining themselves as the Fiverr alternative because unfortunately, there were aspects of Fiverr that people weren’t too excited about. Since it’s early beginnings, Fiverr has truly become massive. However with popularity comes growth right ? Nevertheless, with that comes the reality that not all sellers there are created equal either. Simply put there are sellers there that are far more responsive than others. What happens when you purchase a service from one seller and you never get a response because you’ve been fortunate enough to come across a profile that has a service you love but the flipside is that the seller is inactive and hasn’t logged onto the website in months. Additionally, lets say that you decide to travel the reasonable route of leaving a negative review.. that may not bode well in it’s entirety the way it should considering if you mediate the situation to the level of getting your money back for the service, the feedback gets removed on the sellers side.

Fiverr Alternatives And Sites Like Fiverr

That’s not to say that these things are terrible but having an alternative is worthwhile especially if you fall into the category of people that don’t agree with some of the practices that Fiverr engages in. However you have to weigh what’s important to you as well as you consider any Fiverr alternative because while the alternative may seem great on one hand, you may be giving up something that you already get with Fiverr that you don’t get with other sites like it too.

With that said, lets get into learning about other web sites like Fiverr. There are several websites that are similar as you'll find in the following:

Sites Like Fiverr

Among the most talked about Fiverr alternative is SEO Clerks (www.seoclerks.com). This is a niche site with a Fiverr like feel to it. As the name suggests, it’s geared towards search engine optimization type services. However, there are many that would argue that if you want comprehensive SEO services, you’re better off going through an agency that specializes in these services rather than a $5 service website. While I’m sure you’ve heard the adage, “you get what you pay for”. Let’s be honest, with respect to SEO… a five dollar service is probably not going to carry as much reach as you may experience going through a time tested and measured service provider that is truly an expert in the field.

However, there are definite advantages as I had mentioned before though too. Like Fiverr, you can find deals where you are getting very good services for a fraction of what you would normally pay in exploring more traditional means of acquiring those services. Interestingly enough, they have a couple sections on their website that are unique to them. Those sections are a want to buy and want to trade section that users may find to be an appealing alternative since that’s not something that you will find on other micro job Fiverr like websites. They will also accept Bitcoins which is unique and the last thing that I will say about this website is that you can find gigs as low as $1 which is something very rare amongst these types of websites.

 

Different Choices In Websites Like Fiverr

The next alternative that I’ll get into is Gigbucks (gigbucks.com) which is one that you could truly consider a Fiverr clone since it’s based on the same script. So in terms of navigating the website, if you’re familiar with Fiverr, you’ll be able to find your way around this website pretty comfortably. While I didn’t mention it for SEO Clerks, most of these sites do take a commission from the sellers earnings and while it’s 20% here, that’s pretty standard across most of these sites. Nevertheless, there’s not much to be said about Gigbucks because it’s basically a clone, but it’s mentioned here because it’s in the top 3 of the most visited types of Fiverr like websites.

The only other one that’s worth mentioning at the time of writing this post is Fourerr. With over 50k page views per day at least you know that if you list something here, there’s going to be some degree of exposure and activity particular for those that are interested in where they can list a service with a good chance that they’ll make some money from it. Nevertheless, Fourerr is basically what you would assume.. and by that I mean that services start at $4 however there is a cap by which a max of $25 is the highest that can be charged which may be appealing and not so appealing depending on your goal and interest in the website. They are also one of the more legitimate Fiverr like websites that are still in operation.

There are certainly other alternatives such as:

  • Ten Bux (tenbux.com)
  • Gigs clerk (gigsclerk.com)
  • Redlr (pin.redlr.com)
  • Tenrr (tenrr.com)
  • Gigsbull (gigsbull.com)
  • Hubstaff Talent (talent.hubstaff.com)

However, the reality is that with these sites receiving under 15k page views per day, your exposure will be highly limited and your reach decreases dramatically as opposed to utilizing the top tier service websites that have been mentioned throughout the post.

Fiverr Review Gigs And Metrics

Fiverr Gigs Review Metrics

While Fiverr will never be an Amazon marketplace, it's definitely made a name for itself on the premise that people can provide services for five dollars.

I love the concept and given their popularity a lot of people across the globe love it too. As with any marketplace, people are bound to have experiences that range from being on cloud nine to I wouldn't serve this to my dog if it were the last scrap of food on the planet.

So with that said, there are many opinions out there regarding Fiverr.. many valid opinions and many that aren't.

Many people recognize the "opportunity" that is Fiverr. However, while that's great and all, don't expect to pay $5 for a service that SHOULD cost you hundreds and be upset if you don't get the kind of quality that you would have if you'd paid competitive pricing for that service or product. Quite simply, there are people that expect the moon out of Fiverr sellers for the "meager" cost of the service so lets call it what it is.. 99% of the time, you're NOT going to get a high quality product for five dollars. With that said, there are certainly fiverr alternatives too that are worthwhile as well and may instill more confidence in the prospective buyer.

Nevertheless, continuing on with my point, there is still that remaining 1%. That one percent is a pretty big deal. Like many others that have something to say about Fiverr and their services, I think we can all agree that a lot of the gigs are complete garbage. Garbage that can likely lead to a Google penalty if you choose poorly. Fiverr in some ways remind me of Ebay. You're less likely to trust a seller that has little experience. You're less likely to choose a seller that scores poorly, has any degree of any cancellation ratio, negative ratings or a weak portfolio of work.

Without question it takes some work to find quality on Fiverr, BUT it's the gems that make this marketplace worth the time and energy. Considering the following gig of which I am not endorsing or am affiliated with in any way and is for demonstrative purposes only with respect to this blog post.

Take notice of the following metrics:

Stars -5.0     Buyers -2768     Days on Avg -5     Orders In Queue -52     Status -Top Rated

The metrics are pretty self explanatory. However by paying attention to the number of buyers and in this case 2768 tells you that the gig is popular. When I've utilized Fiverr, the days on average and orders in the queue don't typically matter to me when I've found my own personal gems. However, the "status" of the seller ALWAYS matters. Top Rated sellers are those who have a high number of buyers and a track record of positive buyer feedback.. in "most" cases your cream of the crop. Bear in mind that just because a seller is a top rated seller doesn't mean that their gig is a "must buy" or that the gig is right for you. A service in the photo shown above may be ideal for an affiliate site you're trying to develop a link profile for while it might not be the best fit for another type of project you're working on.

There are many considerations to make as you consider using Fiverr. Paying attention to the metrics discussed above will help you find gigs that are the gems and weed out the 99% that aren't. Metrics aside, you may have even found sellers that aren't top rated and do not have as much buyer popularity, yet they provide absolutely wonderful services and just haven't been discovered yet. Nevertheless, the point of this review of Fiverr in it's entirety is about expediting the process and saving yourself buyer remorse.

As a final note, I have also taken time to highlight top rated Fiverr gigs in the following publications for your consideration:
