    So you may or may not know about Fiverr. Well let me say after months of trying to find a valid way to make a quick buck online the only website to actually send me paypal cash is Fiverr!

    Read my ultimate guide here!

    So, you may or may not have heard of Fiverr the place to out source jobs for, you got it, five dollars. As an avid computer user and someone who could always use a quick buck I gave the website a go! First off, its really simple to use, simply sign up for an account and you can get setting up gigs (Fiverr Jobs) You specify a category for the gig be it video, graphics, social marketing, etc. Then set keyword and a picture. (To get the most money out of the gig make sure to use good keywords that are commonly googled and will interest people.) Then you wright up a quick and enticing summary and you're ready to make money!

    How to maximize you're gig's potential
    Pick good, often searched but relating keywords.
    Take time to make a good Fiverr picture. A gig with a bad picture looks unprofessional.
    Choose a good gig name.
    Provide all the details people need to feel comfortable buying a gig.
    Make you're gig worthwhile to people, not something random.

    How to maximize potential of you're Fiverr account
    A good name. I would rather order than "ShawnseyT." then "PrincessGamer9453".
    A good description of you're self. Rather than "I want more money and stuff".
    A professional looking picture. People feel more comfortable seeing you.

    The do nots of Fiverr
    Use a photo of the internet as you're account photo. I don't want to order from somebody who isn't who they say.
    Try to trick others into buying a gig under false pretenses.
    Do not create a gig you would not pay for you're self.
    Do not mix professional and foolish gigs. If I am thinking of purchasing a gig I check what other gigs the user sells to see how mature he is.

    So I hope this helps on you're trip to riches, five dollars at a time!

    You net $4 per job and $1 goes to fiver and that is why the number was like that.

    Meh the fee's are not too bad. They gotta make money somehow. The only thing I dont like is the 14 day wait after finishing a gig!

    I don't know about others but zeerk.com is owned by me and it's not just another clone. It's the only gig site paying daily to members with no minimum payouts and no fees on $5 gig. It actually have "BHW special" section added.

    I dont mean to be an ass, but have you been under a rock? You havent heard of fiverr and you have 16 posts & you been a member a while, so it seems like you could have been under a rock..

    it either can be a scam or not, but i've seen somebody offering not 3000, but 15k+ GOV & EDU backlinks there and the guy (100% feedback) already has positive feedbacks on that gig, just as on the other gigs of him
