Fiverr has become one of the most useful resources for small to medium sized businesses (SMBs). With gigs starting at only $5.00 (or $5.50, with the extra surcharge added), you can find sellers offering virtually every service imaginable. It’s also easy to look up the best Fiverr gigs by looking at sellers’ rating and reading feedback.
Many business owners overlook Fiverr for a couple of reasons. They may think that it’s impossible to get quality work done for such a low rate. Indeed, many experienced sellers only charge $5 for a very basic or introductory service; they hope to upsell you to a higher paying gig. Even with upsells, however, you can often get services done on Fiverr for much less than you’d pay elsewhere. Not to mention the hundreds of sellers willing to go above and beyond, just to reach that critical mass of rankings. The other reason that many business owners don’t use Fiverr is that they are simply unaware of the overwhelmingly wide diversity of services that are available.
It is for this reason that I am putting together a list of some of the best Fiverr gigs SMBs ought to be aware of. I will also list a few specific gigs under some of the main categories. Naturally, you should keep in mind that Fiverr is a very dynamic site, so gigs are constantly changing. There is no guarantee that a gig recommended here will still be available by the time you read this. However, it’s very likely you will be able to find equivalent ones.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind when browsing Fiverr and its many categories.
- Look Under Each Menu -Fiverr has several menus at the top, such as Business, Online Marketing, Writing & Translation, Music & Audio and others. Many of these categories overlap, so you may find similar gigs under each. You will also notice that under each menu are sub-categories.
- Use Search -To find a specific service, you can use the Search function as well as browsing through the menus. Simply type in the kind of service you need.
- Request Gig -If you are looking for something a little unusual or very specific, you can request a gig. Be as specific as possible when you do this, so you don’t get irrelevant responses.
- Read Descriptions Carefully -Always be sure you understand exactly what you’re getting before ordering a gig. In some cases, it’s better to contact the seller first to clarify things. This is also a good way to gauge how reliable the seller is; e.g. if he/she doesn’t answer a question, that’s not a good sign.
- Be Familiar With Ratings System -Fiverr gigs are rated both as “positive” or “negative” and on a scale of 1 to 5 stars. Buyers can also leave reviews. I will only list gigs below with at least a 98% positive rating with a significant number of reviews.
- Just Do It -Though I mentioned quite a few things to check before you order, don’t overthink it. There are at times so many good sellers with similar skills that it seems difficult to decide who to buy from. Remember, it’s only $5 and there’s no huge financial loss if you can’t use the product you received (though many sellers are so fanatic about perfect rating that they will revise the work with no extra charge).
Let’s now look at some of the categories and best Fiverr gigs for businesses.
Business is an extremely broad category that includes a wide array of services. The following are only a few examples.
Virtual Assistants -These are people who will perform almost any online task related to business, including data entry, research, making phone calls, social media posting and web design. The $5 gig is usually just an introduction to their services.
