The Best Fiverr Gigs for Your Business
No matter if you have a large company or is a single entrepreneur
This article follow another piece we wrote about top fiverr gigs for entrepreneurs and creators
What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is the biggest market for digital services. Business owner working 24 hours a day? Rushing to complete a project? Entrepreneur on the go? Fiverr allows freelancers and entrepreneurs to start making, growing and succeeding.
The platform allows entrepreneurs to discover freelancers by making them contact service sellers at three different levels. That way they find freelancers with the ideal skill set and rates that suit their needs. These seller levels allow companies to expand or narrow their searches according to freelancer levels.
The good thing about this crowdsourcing service is total transparency. Freelancers' profiles can be accessed, along with their ratings, letting buyers decide whether they want to hire them or not. With the system, employers receive advanced knowledge about the quality of service they should receive from a freelancer.
Fiverr is the right platform that an employer looking for a freelancer needs. You can find just about any product or service you need - all starting at $5. The system works by hosting freelancers, having them post their services and work examples. Buyers simply need to look for the best that will suit their needs. Common services include logo design, contract writing and even hiring a virtual assistant.
Why Fiverr is better than other freelance platforms?
Fiverr offers a variety of benefits for entrepreneurs who require the services of high-level freelancers. Here are just a few of them:
Product Categories / Surveys
The products and services offered through the platform are categorized into 12 major groups - graphics and design, writing and translation, music and audio, online marketing, video and animation, and advertising, among others. Each category is subdivided into subcategories. Buyers can explore these subcategories or simply search for specific keywords. Although prices start at $5, improved service or faster deliveries mean higher prices.
A boost for freelancers/salespeople
Many freelancers are switching to Fiverr due to the low fee it charges, which makes finding freelance work much easier. Virtually anyone can sell on the platform, which does not require any complex technical know-how. Freelancers who have a knack for creativity can make money using Fiverr. Another good thing is that freelancers are actually paid to do what they love, making work a lot more fun. They also manage to get more exposure as buyers look for them rather than the other way around.
Freelancer Transparent Information
On Fiverr, employers can see all the necessary information about a freelancer. This includes ratings, feedback, number of jobs or shows completed, and cancellation incidents. This gives buyers confidence in knowing what type of worker they are potentially collaborating with.
Filtered Seller Search
Fiverr has three seller levels in addition to the new seller level. These are freelancers with different status and job completion ratings. They also come with different prices depending on your skill levels and performance ratings. This allows employers to find the right freelancer that meets their needs and budget.
5 Best Services on Fiverr to Boost Your Business
While Fiverr is an amazing place to find just about everything you need as an entrepreneur, here are 5 services that are especially easy to find, affordable, and applicable to most businesses:
1. Logo design
More than ever, companies are competing against shortened consumer attention. As a result, they turned their focus to creating newer and more memorable logos. No company can spend unlimited time convincing potential customers that their products are great. A logo, on the other hand, can quickly catch viewers' attention and communicate a company's core values in a unique way. Increasingly, consumers judge companies as much on their appearance as on what they do.
With this new marketing model, companies of all sizes must spend more resources creating original ideas. Large companies will spend millions on a logo designer to create their perfect image, but most small companies don't have infinite amounts to spend.Fiverr allows buyers to have high quality logo samples created, quickly. In a day or two, for $5-75, buyers can have a variety of logo examples created. You simply describe the logo style you are trying to achieve, provide your business name and general information, and typically provide a list of logos that cover the aesthetic that best represents your business. That same logo quality could easily cost $1,000+ if you work directly with a local logo designer or graphic artist who charges by the hour.
2. Website design
In today's global market, it's not enough just to have a digital presence. To capitalize on the opportunity and captivate real human readers, an optimized, functional and interactive website is essential. Unfortunately, the Internet is swarming with bad site designs that miss both technical imprint and content. Even worse, customers and developers continually contribute to the current outbreak of design delinquency in equal measure.
Fiverr makes shopping for an elegant and easy-to-use website a breeze. Website creation can be modeled from sites you already like, or it can be created from scratch. In my experience, although you can get a site for $100-$300, sites with custom features tend to cost $500-$750. That same quality website can easily cost upwards of $10,000 if you work directly with a local website designer.
Infographics are gaining in popularity and becoming widely used among companies and organizations, both digital and print. They are a clear, effective and artistic way to present information without losing the viewer's attention. In this fast-paced, modern age, people are inundated with information every day and attention span is diminishing by the second. Unfathomable amounts of data are stored online and organized for analysis and reporting purposes.
It can be difficult for people to navigate countless rows of numbers and statistics, whether online or in an Excel spreadsheet. Infographics are used as a powerful tool to allow people to easily digest information through the use of visual data, graphs and statistics. With the proper use of color, proportion, and negative space, information can be transformed into memorable, eye-catching and even persuasive graphics.
Fiverr is filled with graphic designers looking to supplement their income by creating infographics. In my experience, quality infographics range from $20-140, but unless you really have an unusual order, most of mine were created for $20-40.
4. SEO for Search Engine Optimization
In summary, search engine optimization or SEO is a set of rules that website (or blog) owners can follow to optimize their websites for search engines and thus improve their rankings in search engines.
SEO is one of the most cost-effective forms of marketing because you're engaging someone as soon as they actually go to Google and type in something related to a product or service you're offering. When you get traffic from your efforts on these types of search terms, users are already interested in what you have to offer, your job is just to convince them that you're the right partner. Once you start ranking terms well, you receive the consistent traffic benefit that the specific search term provides each month so your potential customer stream continues. Very few marketing channels can say the same thing.
SEO is hard to figure out for anyone unfamiliar with internet marketers. You can pay thousands of dollars a month through an established business and receive a minimal increase in website traffic, keyword rankings or user engagement. The packages on Fiverr vary more widely than most services offered on the platform, but based on my $50-$100 experience they can provide a targeted boost to a specific page or keyword and definitely impact your google rankings. SEO, however, is usually best achieved through long-term strategies. These ongoing services offered through Fiverr typically cost from $100 to $500 per month. However, they often come with specific money-back guarantees, such as ranking first in google for a relatively competitive search phrase or manually creating backlinks to your site on a daily basis.
