Jun 8, 2022Dianne Eberhardt

Have you ever owned a business that needed a little extra support or service? Have you ever needed a website designed or just made a video for an ad? Of course you have; we all have needed help in one way or another.

Fiverr can be an excellent source of help that you need if you are on a tight budget. Fiverr offers digital services in over 500 categories, from writing, translation, graphic design, video editing, and programming, to name a few.

Fiverr started back in 2010 as a way for people to go beyond punching a timeclock and offer their services to the world. The creators of Fiverr, Micha Kaufman and Shai Wininger did what they envisioned Fiverr to be, a global marketplace that brings creative freelancers and business owners in need of digital services together. Since 2010, Fiverr has grown exponentially and is widely known for its services.

Now that we know what Fiverr is and all the services they have to offer. Let us talk about some of the website design features and the Pros and Cons of using Fiverr for your business.

Fiverr has many freelancers on their platform that will offer website designing, but should you use it? Well, first, you need to do some research on the freelancer you will choose. Do they have good reviews from previous clients? Do they answer all your questions thoroughly? Do they have good turnaround times as well? Once you are satisfied with the information they have given you, then hire them.

Services from Fiverr, like website design, can be very inexpensive as they are all trying to make a buck and compete with all the other freelancers out there. Services for web design usually cost between $100 and $3,000 depending on services rendered and the amount of time put in.

Once your website is done, you can also go back to Fiverr and get more advertising services, like video creation or lead generation, etc.

So overall, Fiverr can be a good place for website designing. Just be cautious about who you choose and read the reviews once again. The old saying “you get what you pay for” can be confirmed here, so be careful and do your research.

Cons of using Fiverr

There are a few things to consider when ordering a service through Fiverr. You want to make sure no red flags are popping up.

Be wary of the time frame between incoming and outgoing messages when trying to order your service. If they do not answer your project questions as if they know what they are doing, that also throws up another red flag, make sure you are confident that the person you are buying services from understands and knows what they are talking about.

Pros of Using Fiverr

Fiverr gives you many categories for products and services that you can utilize for yourself and your business. And of course, Fiverr can be very inexpensive to buy services from, depending on what you want and need for your business.

Fiverr gives you seller transparency, which means the seller profiles are detailed. “Pro” sellers Fiverr have vetted also display badges on their profiles.

Fiverr also offers a refund policy; you have up to 14 days after a project’s completion to request a refund if you’re unhappy with the work delivered.

So, in general, Fiverr is a perfect place to find inexpensive services for your business as long as you keep an eye out for any red flags and check the reviews from previous clients. I have used Fiverr many times and always have had success with the business partners I choose to help me in whatever service I need.

So do not be scared of Fiverr; just use your own best judgment and remember always to read the reviews. Personally, I try to work with reviews with at least three stars minimum, and I make sure there are plenty of reviews. If I find one bad review out of many great reviews, then I would still give that vendor a chance by asking him about that review and what happened. Good luck with your Fiverr journey!
