Therefore, I took to my blog to share the proven tips which the pros have been using to hire the best gigs on fiverr without getting any regret. But before then, let’s know what Fiverr is for the benefit of those that are not really familiar with it, before moving to the indepth aspect of it.
What is Fiverr?
According to Wikipedia, Fiverr is a global online marketplace offering tasks and services, beginning at a cost of $5 per job performed, from which it gets its name.
The site is primarily used by freelancers who use Fiverr to offer services to customers worldwide. Currently, Fiverr lists more than three million services on the site that range between $5 and $500.
History of Fiverr
Fiverr was founded by Shai Wininger and Micha Kaufman on February 1, 2010, and is headquartered in Tel Aviv, Israel. Wininger came up with the concept of a marketplacethat would provide a two sided platform for people to buy and sell a variety of digital services typically offered by freelance contractors (e.g. freelancers). Services offered on the site include writing, translation, graphic design, video editing and programming.
Fiverr’s services start at $5, which is what the company’s name is based on and can go up to thousands of dollars with Gig Extras. Each service offered is called a “Gig”.

2. Know the Gig history:
Make sure to check the gig’s review, and read the latest reviews, and the negative reviews as well, if there’s any, if you find a gig with thousands of Positive reviews, rating of 4.9 or 5, and few or non “Negative Reviews” , this is absolutely a recommended trusted gig.
3. Filter your search for “Top Rated Sellers” and “Level 2 Sellers”:
They are Top Rated Sellers for a reason!, thousands of people trusted their work and gave them positive reviews and high ratings!
4. You will get what you will pay for :
Don’t expect to get the quality of a special $50 gig when you buy $5 gig,it’s just impossible!, but luckily, most of the time , and for the everyday work, you will find a lot of fine $5 gigs and they will be more than enough for you.
5. Contact the Seller before you make the order:
Contact the gig provider, make sure he is available and can finish your work in time, specify your exact needs in detailed organized points to make sure that the seller can do it as you wish , also ask for samples for their work.
6. Unless you have good experience and know exactly what you want and what the gigs sellers are really offering, please stay away from these types of gigs because they have many worthless gigs, scams, and some times harmful gigs:
- “Drive Traffic ” gigs , they are all scams.
- most gigs that offer SEO, bulk backlinks, social media bookmarking, wiki links, and similar gigs, some of them are not only useless, but they may do harm your website, they are very risky, and as a general role: Spending $5 on a SEO work and hundreds of backlinks and expecting great results is a waste of your money and time.
