    NO SELF PROMOTION IN THIS THREAD. It will be pretty obvious.

    I've purchased over $5K in Fiverr-related material in 2015. Part of this process is sorting through the crap. I'd venture to say that 95% of Fiverr is just that, crap. Here are a few gigs I've bought that have been worth the money and then some:

    I will manually REWRITE 1 article up to 500 words for $5 - The best spins I've seen out of Fiverr, and definitely worth over $5.

    I will design 2 MAGNIFICENT logo designs for $5 - When I have a new project I want to get off the ground quickly, I go to gigblast and get two great designs in two days for $5. Worth its weight in gold unless you have a dedicated, cheap logo guy already.

    I will do 200 excel row Data Entry for $5 - Saves a butt-load of time for me and keeps me from having to hire a VA since most of my outsourced work is data entry.

    I'd love to see what kind of gigs other buyers have had success with.

    the idea is good, but it won't stop self-promoters, they always try to be smart :)

    on topic: i haven't spend anything near much as you on fiverr, maybe $100 total and i purchased only social media promotions (twitter, FB)
    it's pretty entertaining to see how some of the providers try to fuck you over with fake traffic lol, like sending traffic to the tracking url, just forgetting to fake the referrer inside blanking it yadda yadda

    you need to spend money to find one golden nugget and unless you don't need to buy a service repeatadly, you might as well buy an accordingly priced service here in the BST and spare yourself time/headaches, nevertheless there are gigs which are good and i guess this thread could be a source of those, but i don't see this happening w/o people starting to post their own gigs (reviews can be faked/bought, let's not forget that)

    Some people won't recommend great gigs simply because they believe the seller will have more orders and they will have to wait more for delivery.

    Why does when you contact someone on Fiver regarding a Gig almost always they try to persuade you into buying the more expensive option and elude you that their basic you doesn't include the thing you are looking for, even though the gig says it ?

    Oh cool, I have something to add. There are a million people who do WordPress sh*t on Fiverr, but this is one of the best freelancers I've used, period. He's good, he actually speaks English well, he's really fast, and he's not bottom-of-the-barrel cheap, but he's not expensive, either.

    Have used him for everything from small fixes to massive changes in themes.

    Hi guys, As I said here are a list of Fiverr gigs that I think are very good.
    Disclaimer: I have a tech writing gig, a tech blog guest posting gig and an IT support gig but none of the gigs below are mine because I think self promotion will ruin this thread.

    Get a report on existing citations as well as citations of competitors:
    https://uk.fiverr.com/sandynandal03...tions-plus-spy-on-top-5-competitors-citations

    6k Contextual links - I use these for tier 2 and this guy also has some other gigs that are good.
    https://uk.fiverr.com/gorrior/build-3000-quality-seo-diamond-full-article-backlinks

    I use this writer, she produces some reasonable content at a good price (Its fiverr so its not AMAZING content but its pretty good and there are discounts for bulk orders):
    https://uk.fiverr.com/fashionqueen1

    Majestic backlink reports:
    https://uk.fiverr.com/majinux/provide-you-with-a-full-majestic-seo-report

    Ahrefs backlinks reports (Very fast and efficient delivery on this gig):
    https://uk.fiverr.com/ozzieuk/show-...to-your-website-and-provide-a-detailed-report

    c-sharp developer - this guy is fantastic - very fast, very good communication, great skills and reasonable price - obviously this gig is not your typical $5 average, if you want great work then it costs more so the guy normally works on custom order basis but I got a small windows security program that checks security metrics, sends email report etc for about $20 or so, so its pretty reasonable:
    https://uk.fiverr.com/mark74/write-c-sharp-program

    PS: Sorry but all these links are for UK Fiverr :)

    I found someone to do my landing pages for me. I asked him for a custom design and he did a magnificent job. He is new to freelancing but his designs are spot on. He works for cheap bc he needs a portfolio, but his designs are worth way more than what I paid for them. English is his native language, and he's really polite, professional and helpful.

    This girl is dynamite. I use her for all my eBook covers. You get a flat and 3D version for $5.

    https://www.fiverr.com/creativelog/...ching-ebook-cover-or-kindle-cover-boxcd-cover

    This guy is good with infographics. He does a really good job, especially for the price. $5 for 10 points, $10 for 20 points. I used him for one of my projects and everyone kept asking me who designed my infographic.

    Nice share guys. Now I don't have to waste money to try out which gig provider is good. :) I tried 2 logo designers in the past and they weren't much good, and I thought that I lost money on those deals :p

    I have tried out around 10 SM promotion gigs but they all disappointed.
    If you find a good gig (music / entertainment niche) please let me know
