    Since Fiverr are getting so popular in recent months, I notice some of the gigs cost less than they are worth for so I am thinking whether there are some things you can do to charge customer for a high price ...say $100, and then outsource it for $5 in Fiverr (which then leaves $95 profit)? It doesn't necesary have to be IM stuffs like SEO, backlinks, videos etc, where it could be something totally unrelated to IM such as tarot reading, drawings, photography etc..

    I am just thinking outside the box

    What do you think? Do you think this is a good idea and is possible?

    Yep, so that is why we need to think outside the box. Rather than targeting customers for SEO, backlink, go somewhere that is totally unrelated and less competition! =)

    As mentioned getting clients is the hard part, but me personally I like to know every service I provide, the only time I really outsource is when there is too much of a workload for me to do on my own, that way if you need to outsource you can outsource properly and know the job is being done correctly.

    Outsource without the knowledge yourself at your own peril.

    Ive had some success in the articles. Ive had adds says all right your papers for 30$ and have it in 24hrs. Ive done pretty well with those. If you can find local clients it would be better everything else is pretty much saturated you have to find that one thing that works for you

    I don't wanna be an ass, but I think the selfpromotion on this website, without the mods' approval is forbidden.

    Of course it is being done, however. I am graphic designer and web master and I can no see myself outsourcing my work. I tried to outsource some logos to get made and the quality is never what they present to you at the beginning. So I am a firm believer in 'if you want something done right you have to do it yourself.' And also, don't put your name or in some cases your company's name on anything you are not 100% proud of.

    I do this and make over $500 a month. Only use the gigs on fiverr that are highly rated though.
