    Hello dear BWH members. This is my first journey thread in BHW. I started a fiverr clone site on 11th June 2017. I know most of the fiverr clone sites have failed in the past. I think it was because of these three reasons.

    a. Script with lots of bugs ( I bought a flawless script which is being updated continuously )

    b. Lack of funds ( I earn about $700/month from freelancing and and plan to spend all my earning in my website. Moreover my father is ready to invest about $10000 and I'm planning on how to use them efficiently. So I have enough resources to maintain the site for atleast 5-6 years.)

    c. No proper customer support (I'm in college right now so I can spend about 3-4 hours to take care of my website which I think is more than enough).

    By correcting the above I want to rank my website in the top 10 fiverr clone sites.
    In the first month I tried to get some sellers to register and from 1st July I started advertising my website to buyers through Facebook. I want to make this my full time job once I graduate from college so I am really committed in making this journey a successful one.

    My goal
    To reach $1000 worth sales / day before June 2018 ( This is the month I would graduate )

    Total money Spent till now
    Script : $960 ( +$200 each year for updates )
    Hosting + Domain + Misc : $100
    Facebook Ads : $100

    Total Sales till now : $200

    Stats
    173 open services
    52 members
    1 job request

    Earning opportunities

    I) Take 20% fee on the total price of the job. 10% goes to affiliate( if the buyer is referred by someone else) and 4.5% goes to paypal. So i earn about 5.5% - 15.5% for each job purchased.

    II) Earning by featuring services.

    Right now I'm advertising only through Facebook . I'm open to suggestions on where to advertise and what keywords to target. I started this journey thread to keep myself motivated and I will post updates whenever I'm free.

    I'm not going to post my website link in this thread as I have already been penalized by BHW for spamming my website's links. If you want to know the url PM me.

    A lot of the clone sites failed due to the services being shit, not having the marketing budget to compete with the main players as well as being buggy.

    There used to be a seller on WF who was selling these sites premade, no idea if anyone actually made any money from them.

    Don't want to burst your bubble but who's going to list services on such a new site when there are sites like gigbucks, fiverr, etc. They've been around for years

    I tried them at first but they are so buggy and the support is very poor. Waste of $200. I researched a lot on fiverr scripts and ended up this one which fits all my requirements and looks professional.

    Thanks

    Thanks

    Its all about marketing. There are some sites which started as a small fiverr clone and made a name for itself. I'm trying to convince some huge seller to join my site and list their services.

    Free tips

    Becouse your competition is heigh already ,you need a high pa and da domain to get in there indexed heigh , you need a expired domain with the below stats , you need the domain to look and sound brandable .

    You need a domain like these stats to begin with below......

    Domain metrics needed.......

    DOMAIN AUTHORITY
    27 /100

    PAGE AUTHORITY
    37 /100

    SPAM SCORE: <<< need to beat this...
    4 /17

    4.435
    backlinks needed all heigh da in the niches as the website provides

    example of backlinks needed stats of each link.
    Pa 39 da 45 << over 4.445 will help...


    That the domain done ......

    ---------------------------------------

    You going to need to use a little trick in increasing your indexing , your need to get , 10 heigh blog services and open two accounts for every service

    Here a example of 6 heigh known services below , remember your need two accounts for each service so you end up with 20 accounts, from 10 heigh da and pa good metric services for blogging.

    Example of services only.
    https://www.onblastblog.com/best-blogging-platforms/

    This is where the work comes in and dad money ,

    You will need 4k articles put on the 20 accounts we spoke above.

    That 200 articles 1200 word lenth and longtail keywords in your niches over 20 accounts ....

    They all need to be written 1200 worded and got loads of longtail keywords of your niche in them.

    I suggest buying the articles or get them from expired articles or get talking director and do them via voice.

    Once the 4k articles and there all pointing to your website then where getting somewere....

    On page seo and seo .....

    1k is pretty do-able if you do it correctly. I've been professionally freelancing myself for the past 2 years and I've been apart of few small fiverr clone-ish groups. Here is what I've noticed that most of them don't pay attention to:

    1) Go hard on social media, you have to get your name out there. Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, Reddit .. you name it. You have to be out there and start posting quality content that people would enjoy. Have a theme, even quality across all platforms. You will stand out from the crowd for sure.

    You got it, I am definitely following this journey! I would be more then happy to jump in if you're looking for a creative partner.

    Yes I wish you well, but I was trying to point out sellers won't list on a new site until there is a lot of traffic, you won't get a lot of traffic until you get a lot of sellers, catch 22. It's the same with ebay clones, difficult to get started. You're also charging a lot for a new site, why not have a launch special, like free for the first x amount for new sellers to attract them?

    Learning php,mysql, bootstrap and other things to a standard where he is able to update and code everything himself will take ages. Not to mention the time the coding will actually need. He better spends that time on something else.
    This. If you (thread creator) ask huge seller to list on your platform let them list for free. Listing on your site does not make sense as long as the fees are nearly the same as on fiverr without that large buyer's base behind.
