    Is anyone having much luck with other sites similar to Fiverr that allow you to charge $10+?

    None of them are any good. The closes aleternative would be Gigbucks, but I've yet to make any money there. Basically they are all just shoddy rip-offs of the original.

    Thanks for your input guys but I think you need to re-read my OP.

    I am aware of lots of clone Fiverr sites but is anyone making any good money from them?

    gigbucks: no order so far, just ongoing pm spam :)
    tenbux: 1 order, no spam tho

    It looks as though each site needs lots of visitors because only a very small percentage convert into sales, this is probably why Fiverr does well.

    this
    or like it has been already said before here quite a few times: you should drive traffic to your gigs from outside (twitter, facebook, search engine etc.) of these gig sites

    After 15 days with fiverr earning around $500. Register with other clones also but their traffic is like 1/20 of fiverr. I realize that the deal with $5 is easier to click than $10 and over. I suspended all my gigs because fiverr change the way they display gig. They randomly show gigs at their search result which reduce my traffic by 1/10. Glory days are over.

    $500 in 15 days, thats good going. I think I will have to try just putting a load of ads out there and see what happens. I'm sure most are saturated but if you throw the net wide enough, you can still earn - i hope. :confused:

    What would you say to be your sale/view ratio on fiverr?

    I have 3 gigs available atm, all of them well over 200 views, and no sales yet :(

    from an internet perspective, if it costs you nothing to list your gigs on a new site, you should be listing them on as many sites as possible. Even if they have barely any traffic, you many be one of the only providers so it could be quite lucrative!

    it costs you time - and if you ask me, time is more valuable than any currency - to list and if you barely got any sales, there's no point to list them there, when you can dedicate this time to do something else, like promoting your fiverr gigs outside fiverr for even better results (more sales & building your rep)
    plus those fiverr clones (gigbucks, tenbux, idk the others) are slow as hell, which means even more time to list

    if you want to list your gigs on other sites, it's a better idea to hire a freelancer, but imho it's not worth it either
    trust me, you won't really be the only provider on any of that sites and there're much less people who wants to buy, everybody wants to sell on that sites which is also becoming bigger and bigger problem on fiverr as well as we go forward in time, that's exactly why you should consider driving traffic to your gigs from outside fiverr which makes you quite independent the rank of your gigs on fiverr

    it depends on your gig

    if you offer designing sevices (ie i'll create you a logo for $5), you can make a twitter account around your designing service - make a nice background, profile pic and grab some feeds dealing with design to post relevant tweets (using something like twitterfeed) possibly w/o links in the tweets to get full attention when you tweet your gig's link - and target & follow people who may need your services (webmasters etc.) using automated tools like tweetattack

    just think about who will be the most likely interested in your gig and target them on twitter and/or facebook
