Fiverr is an online marketplace that allows thousands of freelancers to offer their services or “gigs” for a minimum cost of $5 (hence the website name).
You can hire for services such as include web design, video editing, virtual assistants, graphic design, search engine optimization, acting and more.
If you’re a small business or on a budget, Fiverr can help save on marketing dollars.
The platform is easy-to-use, secure and extremely useful for those looking to hire freelancers at a set cost.
Since all transactions are done through Fiverr, it makes outsourcing safer than hiring freelancers directly. If you’re unhappy with the work or feel you got scammed you can always request a refund through Fiverr support.

Posting content on your website can improve search ranking by allowing your website to target new keywords and double traffic within months of regular posting.
Of course, most people can’t be bothered with spending the time writing an article, especially if you have a business to write.
Hiring a good content writer is a difficult task, especially if they aren’t well versed in your industry.
Fiverr has hundreds of content or content-specific writers (ie cannabis writers, diabetes writers etc).
Unfortunately, many of the sellers are providing buyers with plagiarized content, content that was reworded using a content spinner, written in poor english or all of the above.
Before paying, be sure to review the submitted content and run it through a plagiarism checker. Check for spelling, grammar and style of writing.
To ensure you’re hiring a qualified content writer, you should request writing samples so you know what to expect.Start Hiring on Fiverr
Link Building Services
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is taboo for most people which is why it’s a perfect opportunity for scammers.
Backlinks (a link from another website that points to your website) are an important factor Google considers when ranking websites.
If link building is done correctly it can influence how a website will rank in the search results for target keywords.
Several link building gigs are available on Fiverr such as niche blog commenting, directory submissions, RSS submissions, citation building and more.
If you’re getting backlinks from another website, it should meet a certain criterie such as being relevant to your niche/site topic and having a decent Domain Authority (DA) score (ie DA 20+).
Domain Authority is a score out of 100 that predicts how likely a website will rank in Google.Start Hiring on Fiverr
Coupon Code Submissions
Coupon codes are a great way to encourage purchases on an ecommerce website.
From a psychological perspective, studies have shown that promotional codes have physically increased oxytocin when used.
Having coupon codes posted on several websites is an effective way of building backlinks and increasing sales.
There thousands of coupon websites on the internet except only a small percentage allow online store owners to submit coupon codes.
Fiverr has several freelancers offering gigs to submit your coupon information to several coupon based websites.
Assuming they already have a list of websites that accept coupon codes, this seems to mutually work for both parties.Start Hiring on Fiverr
Guest posting is the act of writing content for another website.
Site owners can have article(s) posted on another website and benefit from a valuable link back to their website.
This can provide SEO benefits such as more traffic, improved search ranking and increased Domain Authority.
If you’re looking to purchase this type of gig, you should audit the website the article will be posted to to ensure it’s niche relevant, has a decent DA score (ie 20+) and the link is posted on a page that is part of the site architecture.Start Hiring on Fiverr
