    i want if someone feel like slave when work in fiverr

    i feel my self work like slave i have to work hard everyday to delivery to people on time and for only $4

    if you fail to delivery on time or just late u will get automatic negative review and will lose your gig from search as penalty

    also people there want you to work hard and to do miracles for them for missly $4 and some of them put you negative review and make your gig disappear from fiverr's search

    the support is sucks never help you if you got in troubles they dont care for you they just care about thier interests they make money with or without you simply will let you go down

    and there no alternative to make money without fiverr if u have no high skills

    anyone feel slave in fiverr just like me?

    Never you mind.
    Well the only solution is to put out gigs that dont require a lot of work. Something that doesnt take up over an hour of your time and something you can do with ease.

    I have a gig with "custom beats" but should I get any orders I now have over 200 beats I can choose from to give away straight up. Something for everyone. And should I get something I really dont already have, I know to make a new beat only takes me 20 minutes or so.

    Change your gig to something less strenuous.

    The idea is to start on Fiverr to get a cash flow... then start working on something else which makes your more money... even if its a simple website you setup which allows you to advertise your services (you obviously put the price up a lot more.)

    Fiverr is meant to be supplemental income. More like welfare than slavery. It is meant to supplement your income not replace it.

    Pick yourself up, what you provide is worth more than $4.

    Fiverr should only be used if you need start up cash for hosting and some beginner tools.

    It's all about setting the right expectations. Be clear in your Fiverr posting what you will provide and stick to that.

    Pick a time of day that you do your gigs. If you can group your gigs together and do them during "Fiverr Gig Time" you might not feel like such a slave to the jobs.

    If there is something extra that people are consistently asking for, add it as an upsell, though you have to be a Level 2 seller to do upsells. It sounds like you might be doing enough gigs to get to Level 2 fairly quickly.

    Good luck!

    I use Fiverr every now and then and I don't expect miracles for $5 but I do at least expect what the gig promises and to be delivered in the time frame the gig promises. That very rarely happens. It seems like very few Fiverr sellers can deliver in the time period they say they will, I always seem to wait 2-3 extra days without any communication from the seller which really annoys me. Also the gig is often a bit different to what they claimed.

    If sellers were 100% honest about what they sold and how long it would take and then delivered the correct gig and on time I would have no issues with them even if the gig did turn out to be terrible because for $5 I expect it to be bad.

    Alternatively, you could make a conscious decision to stop doing mindless tasks for slave labor wages and get in the game for real. JMO. :)

    you make hard gigs thats why you feel you are getting slaved :D BTW its easy .. if you dont want to work find some graffity expert and tell him you will pay him $2 per graffity art and dont forget to tell him that you have tons of orders to him .. you will start earning big $$$ if you work fast and contracted many graffity experts .. and finnaly you wont feel that you are being slaved .. just contact , delivered = income .. work like a boss.. use your immagination my friend

    It's you who sets the deadline for the gig and the amount of work you do for $4. So the problem is with your estimation of the work or time required for the work... If you feel like a slave, be it :)..

    Well if you don't want to be treated that way, then stop posting gigs on fiverr.

    Rise up! ... only you can prevent your own slavery. Think about what you are really willing to do for $4.

    It's all about creativity. I see ladies making 30 second videos for 5 bucks. If you add in the communication and setting up of camera, it could top 5 mins. Now, that's what I call slavery.

    That's a good thing that you are upset about this. It means that you are serious about making it. The best thing now is to take more action and learn more of the skills here on BHW that you need to make it on your own without Fiverr.

    ON a side note, it is NOT even $4 when you minus the PayPal fee. Considering Fiverr only has PayPal as the only payment solution, it indeed becomes slavery if you put any serious time constraint on what constitutes a gig. Use it for BOT jobs and move on. The only people who make easy money on Fiverr is Fiverr. Start thinking the same way.
