    i am trying now fiverr as well.

    since i dont spam much - i try to offer quality. now i offer something like 1 pr3 - 2pr2 and a edu blog contextual link.
    i consider that well underprized. The problem is that i have to do this manually and i tested it and nearly need 15 minutes to produce the gig.

    i am now asking ... is this really worth? 15 min for 4 dollar.

    how long do you guys need for the gigs?

    15 min is not bad, a lot better then the guy who dances in a suit of bags or juggles a bunch of knifes for this kind of change. My gigs are of similar taste (15-20min) to do. It takes some time to get a good balance between time spent, and quality of gig so people will keep coming back. If you find yourself spending way too much time on it, can suspend it or reduce the amount of links you offer ect.

    A classic move that a lot of level 2 and power sellers are making is provide something that takes times and of course its not worth only 5$! You do this for a while you get a lot of order + a lot of positive feedbacks and then you deliver less :)

    For example you sell 1500 fb fans and after you get a lot of reviews and orders so you rank higher you change the tilte to 1150 or 1000 :)
    So if you plan to go big dont mind not to work hard at the beginning :)

    Lol. 15 min for $4? You're forgetting the dumb customers who you have to communicate with. It's gonna take you more than 15 min per customer.

    Assuming you answer every dumb question. Having copy/paste answers for common questions is what big companies do to save time.

    In my opinion $4 for 10-15 min is more than enough to start with. Later you can save time by using some cheap workers to do that for you and pay them say 25% of your earning.

    $16 for an hour of continuous work. It's up to you really...

    I like the idea of Sk8tvou, you should try and do that.

    It's not the questions that will get you on fiverr. Buyers just don't read the titles/instructions, so even copy and pasting will take up time.

    Companies also have a higher customer value so it's easier to take care of public relations. Fiverr's public feedback feature just kills it, because there will always be 2-3 people who will just have a hissy fit, and post it on your gig.

    This depends on you. But on fiverr is good to have some ranking, at least lvl2 acc...so it is good to put some time for the first orders. You can find out quicker ways to get the gig done later. Also with new gigs.
