    Hi there.

    I have been testing Fiverr few weeks ago for couple of days and I made some good money with it.

    As I want use this money for some jobs to be done for me (and because I dont have time to do Fiverr stuff anymore as its no as rewarding and is no reason to take job from somebody who really need it) i decided to find top service providers to do some small graphic jobs for me.

    I have contacted 2 days ago around 10 most active graphic designers on Fiverr.

    Guess what?

    No one answered.

    I was asking some simple questions like : "What is turnaround?" or "Do you take orders?"

    Is it time when everybody realized that Fiveer is shit and is more of hassle than real money maker?

    Is Fiverr become MySpace now and all we will see "I will hold your sign" and "I will send you postcard" stuff?

    I would say that at least 75% of the Gig I have ordered on Fiverr were never completed. Many never even responded back.

    The changes that Fiverr made recently aren't good, either. Thwe whole delivery and job completion process was made much more complicated. I hardly get any feedback anymore and the jobs take the full 3 days to be completed most of the time because the people who order my Gigs are dumb ass Fiverr users who can't figure it out.

    As far as sales, I find it best to sell MRR bundles. I've done very well with that, especially website templates and blog themes.

    But yeah, the majority of Fiverr users are morons.

    Ask them to show you the groups they use to suggest things to your Facebook and although yea, $5, you will not be surprised when you see a group of 30k with 200 updates a day on it. Desensitized beyond belief.


    The only thing left is getting your name on a flash card next to a orange lambo

    I think the Fiverr is lacking one thing - VISION.

    They are loosing the ground.
    They see numbers growing but they do not see bigger picture.
    And one day everything will just collapse and then they will be shocked and looking for somebody or someone to blame...

    I always thought that Fiverr is very good thing. Not for me, but for all people from developing countries.
    From places like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Kenya or Philippines to make some cash and start in IM.
    But Fiverr is dominated by some fucked up "Hold you Sign" college girls.
    Well Hold this bitch : :1:

    you are right, I started fiverr to get money for domains, hosting and other stuff that a IM'er needs.

    I will ask them to hold my dick for 5 bucks...

    Damn , some people are so dum, why pay 5 bucks for a pic when you can make a pic of a gf or something..

    I Disagree Fiverr is not Dying yet but it is facing tough competition

    Problems With Fiverr ( In my Opinion )
    1) Dead Gigs
    2) Foolish Gigs on Page 1
    3) Their ranking system ( if they have any )

    The feedback system is very weak. It's also hard to find reputable sellers.

    I think the funniest Gigs are the ones that say" I will have a relationship with you on Facebook for 10 days".

    Who the fuck is that sorry that they would pay $5 to have a relationship on Facefuck for 10 days with a guy who posted a pic of a hot chic?

    Yeah it has already been dominated by stupid college girls. The only gig I left to see is "I will suck your dick for 5$"

    But you see, its not made for it.. what i mean is Fiverr was not created to make people real money.. and now you can see that.. it was created like a novelty item.. you know what i mean.. like "spencers" in the mall. Its all about adult gift cards and parlor tricks.. right?

    Same with Fiverr.. its was suppose to be stupid and for young people that want to do dumb things.. if you think i am wrong just stare at the first page a bit longer... so basically if you want it done right, do it yourself BH'ers....
