    Hey guys,
    I went around fiverr and saw that testimonial videos are making a killing on there. After all, people always need a new face on fiverr to do a testimonial.
    I was thinking of joining this trend because I have a high end phone with HQ microphone and 1080p video but before I do it, I was wondering what dangers does doing such a gig present?

    You might just see yourself plastered all over youtube, so if you have an issue with your face being online that's all i can imagine. Just don't accept testimonials that promote weird junk

    Pretty much your face and voice being used everywhere. But you do make a killing if you don't care especially if someone pays for commercial rights.

    I agree with what has already been said.

    One thing I don't see mentioned, is figure out how long it would take you to do the videos. The whole process from start to delivering to your client and if it'd be worth your time.

    This is good if your show your face to customers, some people desperately want to know whom they are dealing with.

    i can always tell a client that used the fiver videos on their sites, they all got the same vibe to them. Maybe I'm wrong but the main danger is you will be a fake, and when found out your credibility will suffer for providing false testimonials. Maybe do it with a mask?

    Yeah, do it while wearing a Guy Fawkes mask. That surely will help with sales.
