    I'm thinking to start to do gigs on fiverr.

    I want to ask does it worth for it. The time and the money that I'll spent for the reviews?

    Will fiverr last for the next years?

    It certainly will last. The Fiverr marketplace is huge; there are a couple of thousand gigs posted, sellers applying for new accounts on a daily basis and buyers with deep pockets willing to spend a lot of money for services that will contribute to their online success.

    In my opinion, as long as there are people earning money online, there will be Fiverr or similar marketplaces. Fiverr continuously grows and I do not see it will stop at any time.

    Though, keep in mind that competition will run all over you if you try to come close to stealing a percentage of their sales. I have seen many sellers investing money in negative reviews for their competitors. Even though Fiverr has started as a $5 service selling website, it has grown into a giant with sellers battling like it's Armageddon out there.

    I was doing relatively solid on Fiverr, and then I started to realize my business was declining.

    Not only that, but I couldn't stand waiting for the funds to clear (as well as having them take a dollar out of every $5 I made).

    Fiverr is a successful business, and not only for themselves... it a good business on both sides (freelancers and the company itself), I don't see why would it fall.
    As long as Fiverr is not in legally troubles (And I doubt it'll ever happen) there is nothing to worry.

    But if you're planning to sell methamphetamine I suggest looking for another distributor, Mr. White. :D

    Yup.

    TBH, I eventually just started sending "samples" to people that were really interested in having something written.

    The sample would include my contact e-mail and what not, but Fiverr never caught on because it was all within a file.

    Got a few clients outside of their platform this way lol. Don't do any of that now, though.

    They do take one dollar to the buyer. The gig is 6$ and not 5$ for buyer. So it means they take 2 dollars for every gig. Thats a shitty thing

    If u have a unique talent, it's a big yes. For instant, I was the only translator in fiverr for my native language and only 6 in my national language. I managed to earn $200+ in 7 weeks.

    And surely they take $1 for every $5 from the seller. For buyers, if the buyer purchased a gig with paypal or other payment options, as a processing fee yes they take $1, but if u buy a gig from your fiverr money, no fees.

    Sorry, for typing much, that's cause I was only making money through it, and I believe u can too.

    Sincerely

    The thing here is that you can't put fiverr money without they taking 1$ more. Only if you get a refund then you have 5$ in account. Thanks for the explanation btw

    What do you think.

    How much should I invest in Fiverr for reviews to be a successful seller there?

    Btw I wanna offer SEO services

    Any guide here that talks about that?

    SEO has a lot of competition there. I believe 1-5 reviews are enough. Focus more on the buyer requests posted there as a newbie.
    Good luck.

    Sure it is worth it if you can come up with a service that's in demand and there is no or few competition.

    SEO services on fiverr are shit. Don't offer shit and you should be ok :)

    It took me around a year to build my fiverr profile to a point where I'm easily ranking $1,000+ in profits each month. That's a bit more than an average salary where I live. And I've done that by working on fiverr for 2-3 hours daily.

    I never purchased reviews. My plan was simple and it worked: go to buyer requests, respond to them truthfully by telling the clients you're new and looking for reviews and that you're willing to do the job below your regular price. It was easy for me to build a portfolio with that. Make sure you respond to request that weren't written by people looking for free work; you'll learn soon enough what I mean by this. And make sure you respond to 10 requests daily.

    I never offered SEO services so it might be a bit different for those.

    Hope this helps :)

    Fiverr is away to find new clients, but not worth it in the long run in my opinion.

    It was $5.50 last year or the year before. Competition is tough but like mentioned if you stand out your good.
