    would there be any interest in a fiverr like site for just social media gigs. would have facebook, twitter, and youtube sections for the start. under each of thoose categories you could choose specific gigs, such as for fb, buy likes or get a shoutout from someone with a page. for twitter it would be the same, buy followers or get a shoutout and the same for youtube with buying likes/views or getting favorited by a big channel. once you choose one of thoose, you can then choose a more specific niche such as sports, technology, etc... we were thinking about taking 10% from the money that the gig costs, so for a 5 dollar gig, we get .50 and the user gets 4.50. is that to much or to little? what do you guys think. and we would include gigs that are 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 dollars. would this be a site you guys would use or not? any thoughts on what would make it better or criticism? thanks, george

    Yeah I think that could work. There are some things on Fiverr, like the feedback system, which could use work. If you find a way to improve on that, and other flaws with the site, you have much potential.

    what are some of the flaws that you think should be improved on the feedback system and overall? we want to make something that will last a long time and that users will like. ive heard that users on fiverr complain alot about fiverr taking to much from the user so we thought that 10% was fair. tell us if we need to lower it or higher it?

    Honestly, Fiverr is a pretty bad site that has a really great concept behind it. If you have a strong team of PHP developers you should be able to design a better site. It's search functionality isn't very good, it's tiered structure is poor and above all, it's review system is downright F-ed up. In SEO alone you can still see people give good reviews for services that we all know will only hurt the site, not help them. It's because the pre selected option after completion of a project is a thumbs up positive review. I've seen a million people write a complaint but by accident give a thumps up. But honestly, Fiverr has brand recognition and a cool concept so it gets away with that type of stuff. Good luck though, sounds promising!

    thanks. ill work on a better search system and the review system will be based on stars 1-5 to allow a more concise review. a 4-5 will be considered thumbs up, and anything 2 or below will be considered thumbs down. 3 will be nuetral. so when you click on a gig, you can see thumbsup/down, but if you want more detail, you can scroll down to see the reviews based on stars

    That's a very good idea. You are also making this SEO specific, yes?

    thanks. hopefully we get people on this. when it goes live, will probably give out special accounts to bhw testers and users where we only take 5% of the profit, unlike fiverr taking 25% lol

    Wow great thought really. Many people here are asking questions how to get Facebook likes, how to get followers on twitters or how to get You Tube likes. I guess your idea if implemented well can solve many problems.

    No doubt. I don't think anyone would be cool with someone taking $25 out of $100 sale

    I personally don't like it much because we can't contact to members easily and rating system has to be modified. If you're able to make amendments in both these sections then you'll rock.

    If I remember then I had faced problem while messaging those who haven't been rated yet. In order to message someone on fiverr that person has to be rated. You would have to certainly work on it because this is aspect of fiverr sucks. Just my 2 cents.
