Fiverr Alternatives – What Are The Best Ones??

What are the best Fiverr alternatives?

Are there any good Fiverr alternatives out there?

I hate to burst all of your bubbles but I get this question a lot.

Most people ask me this question because of one of two reasons.

1 – They are trying to put their gig or service on as many different websites as possible with hopes of getting more orders, thus making more money

2- They are fed up with Fiverr and looking for an alternative, either because they were banned or aren’t getting any sales

So I have good news and I have bad news for you guys.

The good news is that there are Fiverr alternatives.

The bad news is that the only good Fiverr alternatives available are not direct-alternatives and the ones that are direct-alternatives are just clones/copy-cats that get little to no traffic.

The first thing you need to realize is that Fiverr created something. They kind of invented this whole micro-service marketplace thing we are seeing grow right now and a lot of people are trying to cash in on it by creating clones or copy-cats.

Unfortunately, Fiverr is able to stand on its own since these copycats aren’t very creative or offer anything that much better than Fiverr. Not to mention, Fiverr gets an outrageous amount of traffic and I’m afraid we won’t see a really good competitor to Fiverr for a while until someone comes up with a creative business model with a huge marketing budget. It’s just not going to happen yet.

The only website that comes decently close to be as popular as Fiverr, that is like Fiverr, is SEO Clerks but unfortunately, unless your services are SEO related, you won’t be able to sell them on this site.

So, when we talk about sites like Fiverr, that allow you to sell services as a product for cheap ($5), there’s a lot of imitators but none worth your time. You would be lucky to sell one gig on these other sites. You’re better off focusing your time and energy on Fiverr instead of trying to spread yourself out too thin.

Now, there are alternatives to Fiverr, in that there are other places you can get paid to sell your services. Freelancing websites like Elance, Odesk and Freelancer.com are great places to find clients and get paid a lot more for your skills.

However, instead of just putting up your service as a product and people finding you, people put up their projects and you have to tell them why they should hire you. So, you need to find your clients instead of them finding you.

This requires a little more work than Fiverr but the pay off is huge considering that one project could pay you more than you could make in a week on Fiverr in most cases.

And if you think you need to be a professional to make money on sites like Elance, you’re wrong. You don’t need to be a web designer or graphic designer. Just go to Elance and look at the categories on the website. You can find work for writing, video testimonials, SEO, and a whole lot more. What you’re currently selling on Fiverr, you can likely translate over to a site like Elance as well and get paid a lot more for it.

So, I hope this has helped you guys asking me about alternatives.

It’s likely not the answer you wanted to hear but it’s the reality at the moment.

Don’t think this is an opportunity to create yet another Fiverr clone, either. You need a huge marketing budget and bring something a little different to the table if you want to be as successful as Fiverr.

For you sellers, just stick with Fiverr for now or move on to bigger and better things like a freelancing website like Elance.

Good luck!
