First Things

However the first thing to do before considering anyone is to make a shortlist of sellers and gigs. Ask potential sellers relevant questions, describe what your needs are. Make sure you take the time to thoroughly explain what you want and how you want the project done. Look up on their posts about how good their past deliveries were to see that they’re going to be able to turn projects around in a reasonable amount of time.

Check Out Past Reviews

If you are using a freelance service like Fiverr you can look at all of their reviews to see if their clients have all be happy and satisfied with the work.

So seeing work examples are important. Does the seller feature a portfolio showing recent work? Does that work have a consistent style and quality level across all deliveries? If they don't have work samples, ask them to show them.

One of the advantages of finding people through  Fiverr is that you can find information about the sellers before you hire them.


You Don't Pay Unless Satisfied

Fiverr is good at providing information about the seller's feedback score and their ratings. You can also contact the sellers if you have questions about their work prior to making a purchase. It is also possible to deal directly with the sellers. You will find that they do offer some great services for customers. For example if the sellers are not following the terms of service laid out by Fiverr, or engaging in unethical practices, you can report them and Fiverr will follow up with your complaints. You only pay if you are totally satisfied with their work.

Lets take a look at one company that seeks to connect businesses of all sizes with skilled freelancers offering digital services in more than 300 categories in many niches, including graphic design, video, writing, data entry, and website building among so many more.

The online company's name is Fiverr and the name Fiverr comes from the $5 asking price attached to all tasks back when the company was originally founded in 2010 in Tel Aviv.

A few years later the company started expanding its marketplace to many logo designers, graphic artists, voice over artists and others started to change the base prices they set for themselves on productized services, known as Gigs at prices above the original $5 price.

Now with the global economy there is more availability of global talent so it can be tempting to just go out and start hiring freelancers.

However you can still find some sellers willing to complete a task for $5. But now Fiverr lists short-term gigs on their website that buyers can search and purchase from, with prices ranging anywhere from $5. to over $10,00
