    Hey guys. I've just sold a gig on fiverr (basically giving an ebook about email marketing to the guy) and now the buyer told me that he wants to build him a membership site plus landing page a dozen of sale letters and a few more things. He just wants to know how many gigs he have to buy from me so I can do those things and how many gigs I need every month. The problem is that I'm really new to those kind of things and I've never done the job that he needs to be done. I don't want to refuse the offer either because thats some cash which could turn in recurring cash. Can you please give me some advices please? Should I JV or something?

    first, learn the thing written in the ebook before you are selling, because you will face problems like this...it's like..I'm selling Coca Cola, but have no idea what it is...always think before taking action

    If you can't do it,tell him straight that you can't do it.
    And then tell that you can have it done by someone. Post in Hire a freelancer section and get it done.
    Never lie to your customer. :)

    That's a nice lead over there, but if you can't outsource it, better tell him the truth.

    Thanks guys, really appreciate the advices you that gave me. I'm gonna tell him that I can't do it but I can outsource it.

    Well fella, I've started this gig two months ago and its sold just now. No promoting or anything. Just optimized for keywords and shiny description. However I've seen books/reports sold on fiverr with hundreds of positive feedbacks, so yeah someone is making money with these kinds of gigs

    My experience is that you do not really have a good customer. He is wanting you to build these things for a few fiver gigs, he is cheap and will always be. Do what you want, but these people are never satisfied and think $5 will get them a 5 page full optimized website.

    Fiver gigs have to be quickies, this is going to be very time consuming, and I doubt he will even pay for 10 gigs. Even if he does that is only $40 for your trouble.

    But Good luck, hope I am wrong.
