How To Outsource Your Business On Fiverr – 1 Simple But Effective Way

This post may contain affiliate links for more info visit my disclosure page.

Outsourcing can be a big problem these days for many webmasters or small internet business owners. The truth is that there are too many low-quality freelancers and the good ones are really expensive.

But I am sure after reading that post. Outsourcing will not be a problem for you anymore.

There is a very simple way that is recommended by Fiverr, but I was not trying it until a few weeks ago.

Then, I saw that only a few marketers use this method, and I decided to share it.

Below you can see an introduction about Fiverr and why this way is working before I show you how to outsource your business on Fiverr.

What Is Fiverr

Fiverr is a place where many freelancers promote and sell their services while online marketers get help for their businesses.

It is a huge marketplace with tough competition between freelancers.

Services cost from 5$, and you can find gigs (services) on any category of online marketing.

After this small introduction for those who are unfamiliar with Fiverr, let’s see some problems that you may have when you are looking for a freelancer on Fiverr.

Most of the freelancers offer low-quality gigs.

I have tried many times before to outsource some tasks on Fiverr. Usually, I was unhappy with their work.

I do not want to blame a specific freelancer, but I can recommend you to stay away for most of the $5 gigs if you have not seen a sample.

Reviews are not so important because freelancers can remove the negative ones if they give back the money on the reviewer.

So, many times you will get low quality work, and it makes sense because you give them only $5.

You may say that it is fine because it is cheap. But if you do not offer quality to your readers, they will not visit your site again. You cannot publish the 400-word articles that many gigs write or create these bad backlinks that many SEO gigs offer. It is bad for your business.

How To Avoid Low-Quality Gigs

Now we need to go deeper on Fiverr.

When you put a keyword in the search box, the search will show you similar gigs without many differences, and you can expect the same quality by their work.

I mean that the search will show you gigs with many reviews who optimize their listing well.

For example:

If you search “SEO article,” that is a common search on Fiverr, you will get gigs with many reviews, which will write 400-500 word articles for $5.Fiverr - Seo Article

Most people will choose one of the many reviews gigs with a nice description or a nice photo. But this is exactly what we want to avoid.

You do not want to hire people because they look nice but because they can make the job for you.

Here is how we will find the best freelancers to hire:

Use the “post a request” option.

In any category, there are many gigs that will reply to any request that makes sense. The advantages of this option are two:

  1. You can request what you exactly want from a gig to be done, and you do not have to go with a package that is predetermined from a gig.
  2. Many gigs will make you offers based on your request. You will get many different offers, samples, prices, etc.

With a few words, you can compare the gigs for their work and not for their reviews and descriptions. Also, in most cases, you will take over 10-20 replies on your requests because of the many freelancers who try to make money on Fiverr.

The most replies, the better. You want to have many options.

Ok, let’s see this process step by step.

How To Outsource Your Business On Fiverr

Step 1

Log in on Fiverr. If you have not already an account, create a free one here.

Step 2

When you are on the home page, click “Buying” and then “Post a Request” on the top right of the page.

Step 3

Now, you are on the page where you edit and publish your request. 

You can write a description, choose the most relevant category, choose the time you want to be completed the order, and you can set a budget for the project.

It is important to give a detailed description of what you are looking for and select a relevant category to get as more replies as possible.

Here is an example of a previous request:

I want a Powerpoint video with a voice-over. I give you a link to the article I want to turn on a video. You can use as many images you want. I want information about the length of the video and the price. The article is 2000 words. Native English speaker only.

Step 4

If you post your request, you wait some time to get approved.

You can see your requests if you click the “Manage Requests” on the top-right menu.

Then, you will visit a page where you can see all your requests and not only the active.

Step 5

When you have enough replies, go to the “Manage Requests” page, click review offers and pause or delete the request if you have found what you are looking for.

In this example, I have 21 offers to review.

There were offers from $5 to $1015 with samples and any information about how they will create my video.

Only two tips I can give you here, always check out the samples and contact the freelancer for any question you may have after that is on you.

If you like what you see, just complete the order. If not, look for something else.

Last Thoughts

When you want to hire someone for a job, do not search all the internet to find one. Post a job and make them find you. Also, they must prove to you that they deserve to take the job.

In this way, you can find great freelancers. Keep in mind that the bigger your budget, the better gigs you will find. On Fiverr, you get what you pay for.

You can use this way for any type of gig you may want. It has worked effectively for any task I have tried until now.

Fiverr is a great place to find freelancers, and I definitely recommend it.

A good alternative to Fiverr is Upwork. It is a little more complicated than Fiverr, and I do not usually get as many replies, but there are some marketers who prefer it.

  1. You are so right! Actually, I’m familiar with this little button “Post a Request” but I guess I just forgot about this option.
    I was one of those “people who will choose one of the many reviews gigs with a nice description or a nice photo” 🙂 as you mentioned lol
    I’m so happy I came across your Fiverr review. Great info

    Thanks a lot!

    1. Thanks for your comment. Fiverr is organized in a way that makes you buy from the gigs with the many reviews. But sometimes reviews mean nothing.

      Many of those gigs exchange reviews between them and remove the negative reviews by giving the money back. So, the Fiverr’s system can be cheated even if they try to find those people, there are many others who still do it. I have read ebooks, posts and watched videos from “Fiverr experts” who were showing others how to cheat.

      After that, I always ask for samples in Fiverr or any other place for freelancers. Simply, I do not trust the reviews anymore.

  2. I’ve actually used fiverr for audio engineering purposes for my music numerous times….but this is the first time I’ve come across the ‘post a request’ feature!
    Thanks so much for this – I guess you end up with a lot more solid gig owners when you grab work this way? How often do you use it?

    1. Hi Chris, I can find better gigs than before. I have used Fiverr many times and I had created a few writing gigs some months ago. 

      Lately, I order once every 10-15 days but some times it happens to order more often like 2-3 times per week.

  3. I’ve used Fiverr many times in the past and like most people, I went for the gigs that had the most 5-star reviews and lowest price. And you’re right the quality was not great. I did this for every project, hoping that the results would get better, but nope. I haven’t used them since my last project because of this, and instead, I’m doing those tasks myself(which is taking a lot of my time). Think I’ll use this strategy and pay a little more to free up my time, and hopefully get better quality work.

    Thanks for this info.

    1. Hi Oscar, Fiverr is a place where you can find good freelancers to do any task you want. 

      If you use the way above and ask for samples before making the order, you will rarely have a bad gig.
