Fiverr began their company back in 2009 by offering freelance work for only 5 dollars, hence the name Fiverr. They are similar to upworks, except they offer much more than just article writing. Their services range from blog posts up to voice acting services.
From my personal experiences, I haven’t had much luck with Fiverr, though I only offered blog posting work. I can see a lot of potential in this company If someone put their heart and soul into it.
This review is going to be ongoing, I plan on going back and trying my hand out on voice acting, who knows maybe I can be the next Robin Williams, lol. But seriously, there’s a lot of money that can be made with webinars and tutorials.
I love writing blog posts and articles, but when you’re just starting out it can be hard to pay for those earlier expenses. Fiverr, like upworks can provide you will contract work that will give you that necessary income to build your future.

WHO IT IS FOR
It’s a 2 fold program, it’s for those looking to make an extra buck and it’s for those looking for someone to work for them. There are so many reports out there of people who have made successful careers out of working for Fiverr. Though it takes a lot of dedication and time, much like any online adventure.
Most of the training is withing the program, they help you create a profile with what other people are looking for.
They have a support portal page here that you can find help. I personally haven’t used it, most of what I found was up front.
To sign up is free, though there is a 20% fee when getting the gig. Your best best is to hope how much your getting pays for the fee.
There are so many ways to make money online, it’s crazy and can make your head spin. Fiverr is just one of many, though there has been a lot of good reports from them.
