    I been doing the same sb fiver blasts over and over for 2 years and 3 months now, and im soooo very tired. I sit up many nights to 4 am just wating for an order to finnish, and OMG im getting more and more complaints arrrrg and im thinking is it all worth it :(
    But i have loans to pay, so i dont really have a choice. And i had to take an expensive loan with like 30% interest to get $10.000 so my wife could stay and that its gonna take years to pay back :(

    Unless you can work out a gig on that is push button automated then whats the point ?

    $4 less fees profit is what $3.40 ish ?

    Deduct your pc and software expenditure

    How much time are you spending answering enquiries, talking to customers after a sale, re-doing orders etc

    How long does it actually take you in real time to complete an order from start to finish ?

    Im not going to give you a pep talk and encourage you to keep at it because you should drop it like a hot brick.

    Right now I would be putting up a JV thread. "you take over my successful scrapebox gig and use my levelled up account...Send me $1 for every order you complete and I never want to hear from you apart from when you send me my cut every friday"

    Fiverr is appealing to some young kid who lives at home but a grown man cant live off that shit.

    I feel the same about Fiverr customers are so picky for what is essentially a $4 service. I have basically given up on offering services there, except when I have a ton of free time on my hands. Unless you can automate it, really not worth your time in my opinion. Unless you live in a country where you can realistically make a full time income from Fiverr.

    I think many people wanted to give Fiverr a shot because it was a new thing a while back, and it gave another outlet to peddle your goods/services. But yeah, it's just not suitable for some stuff. You really have to put a price on your time, and if it comes out below what you expect to be paid for your expertise or whatever, then it is really time to find somewhere else to sell your services.

    Most likely will result in higher profits for less time. Keep in mind, SB blasts are mostly geared to people from BHW, so...I agree with what someone before my post said, was to open a BST here on BHW and sell directly to the people you are targeting, at a more reasonable price to you.

    Leave Fiverr to the testimonial people. lol

    Every $3+something is a huge part of the food that's brought at the table daily without any stops for your blessed family! Today it's $3+, one day it shall be $30+, then $300+, then... Think man, you have something that's not available to millions all over the world... Work! Never underestimate the power of work!!

    hey P , if you are tired, try to look for other alternatives ,,, coz if you are tired you wont be able to do your job well..when you do things with interest you tend to do it well may be without a redo...try to put up a jv thread make an offer ....and in the meanwhile look for other avenues , i am sure you will find it if you look for it well!
    cheers!

    this too shall pass :)

    I am a seller too on fiverr and know your pain. To lessen your burden, i can recommend to hire full time virtual assistant from third world countries to help you (example freelancer.com). You can generate the profit, while your assistant do the most work for you. That's how i do it.

    try to get in contact with a fiverr seller. send him your skype from an other account.

    just pm him with a file with binary code and tell him to uncode it.

    ask him if he wants to do SB blasts for you for 2 or 1 bucks depends on how many orders and then sit back and send him the orders.

    If you're in Canada and you've made five or six payments on the 30% loan, I am positive you can find a re-finance at 12% or less. Look around. dgp

    You seem to lack a long term strategy which is very important in this game. Fiver should have been a short term $$ gig where you reinvest in building sites (niche and keyword research required and prob get alot of that free from your client project gigs) that generate passive income as medium term and then long term is to build your own brand product or authority site (real authority and not what people think is authority by just having 100 or 200 average posts!!) which is not dependent of Google kw rankings as people will be searching for you / your brand and not general keywords.

    You should eventually get to the point where almost everything is outsourced where you are working (strategically) on your business and not in your business.

    You can still start that now but with your $10k debt it will not be easy but everything is possible with the right attitude and strategy online.

    Have you considered buying a domain name, building your own site and just offering your services for a higher price? It might take a few months to start ranking your site but it's a much better (and more importantly profitable) strategy. No point killing yourself for peanuts and for people that have no idea about seo and then complain when their site isn't no.1 in Google after paying $5
