Fiverr Review – Get Everything Done for just $5

Fiverr Review – Get Everything Done for just $5

Anything that can be done online can be done on Fiverr.com. Professional business services such as logo design, content writing, translation services, videos editing and development, image editing, business plan development, online research, website development and testing, etc. are some of the most common things available on Fiverr.

And most of the services start at just $5.

I have purchased following items from Fiverr at just $5 each. I can’t get a better product from anywhere else at $5.

I have bought several other items at Fiverr and quite happy with overall service delivery.

Not all buyers are happy with the services. Many feel that it is a waste of time and money to buy things on Fiverr.

Some also argue that Fiverr services are like this:

It is true that “You get what you pay for.”

However, at the same cost, you can get a better quality of output than others, if you do things differently.

Fiverr is an excellent marketplace for creative and professional services. You can take maximum advantage of it if you know how to get things done especially through outsourcing.

Before, you go ahead and buy something on Fiverr, set your expectations right:

  1. The quality of output depends on the clarity of your instructions and the seller you choose
  2. What you get for $5 is worth more than the cost, provided you don’t compare it with a similar service from a renowned brand worth hundreds or thousands of dollars
  3. If you know what you want, then you will get exactly that. If you don’t know what you want and expect the sellers at Fiverr to advise you, then you will never get what you need
  4. If you don’t want to risk $5 to save $200, then you shouldn’t use the website

The truth is, smart business people and marketers save thousands of dollars by buying services on Fiverr. In fact, many professionals buy the same service from Fiverr at $5 and sell it to their clients at $100 or more.

How to take the best out of Fiverr:

  1. Write down the instructions clearly. Leave no space for any doubt. Use references wherever applicable.
  2. Don’t use words or phrases such as “I want best quality content” or “something that convinces users to take action.” These are subjective expressions which have no relevance for sellers. What is best for them may not be good for you and vice versa.
  3. Before selecting a seller, read their requirements clearly. Do provide what all information they need to deliver your services.
  4. Communicate with them clearly and provide accurate feedback in a professional manner if the output is significantly different from your expectations.

How to buy on Fiverr – Step by Step guide to buying on Fiverr

  1. Register on Fiverr.com
  2. Write down the instructions clearly
  3. Search required services using Search box on the top or using top navigation menu
  4. Open top five or ten sellers’ profile in the new tabs
  5. Pay attention to reviews, comments, ratings, and service package description of each seller. Evaluate sellers on these parameters.
  6. Shortlist the sellers who meet your requirement closely. Don’t get confused. Select the one who seems to be flexible and trustworthy. In case of any doubts, send a message to the shortlisted sellers and clarify your doubts. Select the final seller or freelancer whom you will hire – Before finalizing a vendor, you should send the project details to them and get their final quote to avoid any confusion during the delivery of services.
  7. Proceed to Order if satisfied with their answers
  8. Make Payment
  9. Send the project details through message including all relevant attachments.
  10. Within few hours of placing the order, you should receive a message from the seller. Communicate with them until your work gets delivered
  11. Once the work is performed to your satisfaction, close the project and leave a rating for the seller. Do remember that if you are not satisfied with the services, then you may request a refund. Once your refund is processed, you will have the option to buy the services from other vendors. Thus, your money is safe.

Beware of scam artists on Fiverr:

Don’t buy SEO backlinks, website traffic or anything that seems fishy or impossible to achieve in real life. Buying such services can hamper your site’s reputation. In the past, many webmasters have complained that after buying traffic from Fiverr, their sites got penalized by Google. So beware of such services that offer some guaranteed results especially in the online marketing space.

Fake Items on Fiverr

A lot of sellers used to sell fake reviews like Amazon or Yelp Reviews on Fiverr. Recently Amazon has filed a lawsuit against hundreds of such vendors. Following are some of the fake items sold on Fiverr at fractions of the original cost:

  • Mobile App Installs (Android and iOS)
  • Website Traffic
  • SEO Backlinks
  • Facebook Page Likes and Twitter Followers
  • Software Keys (software that is available on the market at $150 per annum can be found at $5 on Fiverr).
  • WordPress Themes

While these items are fake, many times it works well for buyers to purchase them as they need cheap stuff irrespective of quality. For example, if a politician needs millions of Twitter followers, they can buy the same at Fiverr. To them or their supporters and media, quantity is more important than quality. Similarly, customers buy mobile app installs and reviews to boost their temporary online reputation.

Many a time, people also buy the null version of software on Fiverr at far cheaper rates than the cost of the original software. However, Fiverr can’t be blamed for such activities as it is a marketplace that facilitates buyers and sellers to do meaningful transactions. What you buy or sell may be your choice. However, over time the platform has taken a serious note of such vendors and trying to debar them from selling unlawful services.

Conclusion

Fiverr is a fantastic platform for buying professional services. I strongly recommend it to entrepreneurs and small businesses, who need to save every penny they can to run their activities smoothly at initial stages of their business formation. Until you need very high-quality services, you can trust Fiverr to get the basic work done at affordable price.

Why banning Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 Notes is the best decision by any government since independence?

Why banning Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 Notes is the best decision by any government since independence?

On November 8, 2016, India took a decisive step of banning Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 currency notes to fight against corruption, black money, terror funding and fledging fake currency industry. The government has taken several measures to make the transition as smooth as possible without leaving the scope for any loophole that allows black money holders to launder their illegal wealth. In India, the corrupts are well connected and influential. They consider themselves above the law and can go to any extent to establish their superiority over other fellow Indian citizens. Since they play a critical role in the formation of every government, it is almost impossible for any government to make a policy that goes against the interest of such powerful and wealthy people.

The Government of India led by Mr. Narendra Modi has pleasantly surprised its citizens by taking one of the biggest policy decisions since independent India to fight against graft. The new rule may cause temporary inconvenience to millions of people across the country. However, its positive impact may be felt for generations to come.

The fight against corruption is a continuous process and will continue till humans exist on earth. No single rule or policy can eliminate the corruption completely. What matters the most is whether we are moving in the right direction or not. Keeping aside our political inclinations, let us analyze the current policy to see its long term ramifications and where we are heading.

Here are some facts from the recent policy decisions made by Government of India to fight corruption:

  1. Existing notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 will not be valid from 9 November 2016 onwards.
  2. RBI will shortly issue (On 10 November) new notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 2000.
  3. Rs. 2000 currency will be the first in India
  4. The old notes can be deposited in banks and post offices accounts from November 10 to December 30, 2016, without any limit. You need to carry Aadhar and PAN cards to deposit the money. After December 30, you can deposit the old notes in some designated offices of Reserve Bank of India with reasons and declarations. While there is no limit on deposit of old notes, you can exchange old notes worth INR 4000 up to 24 November from any banks and post offices accounts.
  5. ATM withdrawals will be limited to INR 10,000 per day and INR 20,000 per week. The limit will be increased later.
  6. Until November 11, Rail, Bus, Air Ticket Counters, Petrol Stations (authorized by public sector companies) and government hospitals, milk booths, Safal, Crematoria and Burial grounds will accept old notes. Tourists can exchange old notes at Airports.
  7. Banks and ATMs will be closed for Public on November 9 and while some of the ATMs may not function on November 10. The cash withdrawal limit will be Rs. 2000 for 9 & 10 November.
  8. The cheque, card, and online payments will remain unaffected. The coins and other notes of lower denominations will continue to be legal tender
  9. New notes of Rs. 500 and Rs. 2000 will be available in ATMs from 11 November.

Connecting the Dots

GoI started one of the biggest financial inclusion schemes of the world – Jan Dhan Yojna – to integrate the weaker section of the society into mainstream financial and banking system. More than 250 million (25 crores) new bank accounts have been opened as on November 2, 2016, under this scheme. Almost 200 million RuPay cards have issued under the same scheme. This scheme helped a lot of poor people to get connected with the banking system of the country.

Then through a Voluntary Income Disclosure Scheme, the government gave an opportunity to people to legalize unaccounted wealth by paying a flat 45% tax. At the same time, Income Tax department has become hyperactive and tracking all large transactions. PAN card has been mandatory for transactions of more than Rs. 2 lakh. Several other measures were taken to make black money transactions difficult. The current decision taken by the government is not a diversion tactic to divert attention but a part of its carefully crafted strategy to eliminate corruption. Thus, expect some more stringent policies and tough decisions to fight graft in the future. The next steps by the government will not close the loopholes but also strengthen the enforcement procedures to track and prosecute regular offenders.

Conclusion

There are some genuine concerns over the introduction of Rs. 2000 notes. Since the new notes have improved security features, it will be far easier to track them as compared to old currencies. Some people may truly face temporary hardship for few days. I suggest them that a few minutes of painful exercise in the morning can transform the way your body and mind works for the entire day and even for whole life. This is one of the best decision taken by any government since independence. And people should accept small inconveniences with grace. At the time of writing this blog, the real estate shares have tumbled by 20%. It clearly indicates the future impact of this decision on prices of properties. The price correction in real estate should be big news for lakhs of home buyers who wish to buy a home but can’t do so as the current rates are ridiculously high.
The new rule will also impact political parties including the ruling BJP which will find it difficult to fund their extravagant campaigns. The best part of the announcement lies in the way government has handled it. At the time when the bedroom discussions become the breaking news, the entire useless Indian media and political establishment have been shown their real “Aukaat” by the Modi government. The government and RBI must have made extensive preparation for printing and introducing new notes by November 11. However, none of the media houses or political leaders were able to get an iota of insider information. I call this the best example of “minimum government and maximum governance.” It also shows the honest intentions of the current establishment at the centre to eliminate the menace of corruption.

I will keep adding new facts and figures on this blog. Meanwhile, I would like to know your critical opinion on this issue. If you find my analysis biased or incomplete, don’t hesitate to point it through comments. If you like it, please like, comment and share it to spread the word.

The Top 6 Best and Worst Social Media Trends For 2015

The Top 6 Best and Worst Social Media Trends For 2015

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. But 2015 is definitely eventful for social media. Social media gurus have caught on to trends that can make a huge impact in the times to come. SixPL is a premier digital marketing agency that has the best (and the worst) trends for social media this year.

Vanishing Media: Facebook is for everyone but youngsters want more options. New online territories are being carved out because Facebook and Twitter have competition and it is not just Instagram which is threatening to upset the gravy train. Snapchat is looking to snap up more customers and as it is with other rapidly developing fields, yesterday’s social media now has to catch up with today’s.

Sophisticated Blogging: From a time when it was all about words alone to a point where blogging platforms even provide streamlined interfaces and approximate reading time, blogging has come a long, long way. While wordsmiths may bemoan this trend, Internet blog publishing platforms such as Medium are making hay while the sun shines. Creativity is just one aspect of packaging. Nowadays, it is all about packaging the blog so that readers have their fair share of knowledge and fun at the same time.

Private Networks: With changing times, social networks are also changing. While Twitter operates best if information is publicly shared, online users who want privacy can choose from many options. Lulu is a women-only app on iOS/Android which is catching on fast in Brazil, the football mecca. Lulu goes beyond FaceMash and it certainly works out for ladies who want to rate guys with numbers. This closed network gives users the privacy and security they need and cherish on an otherwise annoyingly public Internet.

Selfies Are In With Shots Of Me: Social media certainly won’t hit the high note when it comes to downsizing the human ego. Shots of Me has more than Justin Bieber rooting for them. This iOs app is perfect for sharing selfies. The restriction on comments does limit cyber-bulling but it is the height of self-centeredness.

Airbnb Soars To New Heights: The social media synergy has a new mix and It is Airbnb.  Social networks are built for sharing and Airbnb has caught on to this trend fast. Social networks are great if you want to book a dog-sitter(DogVacay) or rent stuff (Rentything).

Vine is Creeping In: Instagram may have taken to video, but the grapevine is that Vine has taken steps to edge them out. The 6 second witty apps are bringing users a novel experience which is the reason why there are so popular. Quick videos with fun and entertainment are the USP of this service. Vine celebrities are also adding their star power and platform integration has done what is was meant to do. This app is a boon for marketing as it can be easily shared on the 2Ts- Twitter and TumbIr.

With new trends catching on, the online social media space just got more exciting. Keeping tabs on this rapidly expanding media is all about connecting with the trends.

5 features that should have been built into WordPress already

5 features that should have been built into WordPress already

WordPress is a free, open source blogging tool and content management system widely used by millions of users to create a website or a blog. With easy customization, themes and designs, and a lot of widgets and plugins, it is no wonder that WordPress has quickly become the world’s most used website development platform. With its help, even technology novices have been able to create awe inspiring websites and blogs that bring a lot of traffic. Since WordPress is also SEO friendly, it demands very little work to bring in great results. However, for those who are a little advanced and need a little more functionality in their websites, WordPress may not always deliver what they require. Fear not though, because the WordPress developer community is always trying to make life easier for its patrons. But while we are talking about it, let’s also discuss the things that top our wishlist of what WordPress should have to make our lives a little easier.

Caching

Whenever a user visits a webpage powered by WordPress, the system performs multiple server-side processes and database queries to generate that page for the visitor. It affects the speed of the website, and users might face major slowdowns and downtimes.Web cache can be a helpful tool to overcome this problem. A web cache is a mechanism for temporary storage of web documents, which helps reduce bandwidth usage and decreases server load. Some improvements can be made through plugins like Quick Cache.

Search

The inbuilt ‘search’in WordPress could be improved. For example, if you are looking for the author’s exact name in the search, possibly you won’t find it. This is because WordPress can only literally find the exact words in its search. The biggest problem with WordPress search is that it may not always show relevant results for your query.A better search algorithm is the next step in improving WordPress. Third party search engines like Google andYahoo can be utilized for improvement.

WordPress Shortcodes

The WordPress was designed with a motive to enable users to create their own website and blogs, even without technical knowledge. But, WordPress shortcodes have been difficult to use for the average users. In fact, shortcodesseem against the very ethos of friendliness projected by WordPress. Unlike designers and developers, simple users use web applications to manage their content, because they don’t want to bear the pain of Javascript, stylesheets and other technical requirements.

There is still no constructive solution to this problem.

Web Form Builder

Now, almost every website uses web forms. It helps users get feedback and inputs, and also enables them to communicate with their intended audiences. Content driven websites need web forms to know users’ opinions and feedback. Unfortunately, there are no such custom made web forms available on WordPress. If a form builder interface can be made available,something similar to the navigation and header builders; users can customize it to enhance communication with users.

Customized Sidebars

It would be very helpful for users if they could create widget sidebars; select which posts or pages, and which sidebarsthey want to have on their website.

 WordPress software is created by enthusiastic developers, who volunteer their time and effort towards creating websites, themes and plugins. When they are developing all these things, one of their main aims of the service is to provide an ease of operation.These recommended features can certainly enhance user experience and improve the functionality of their websites or blogs. Perhaps, some developers would heed our requests too.

Eight things you didn’t know you could do with WordPress

Working on WordPress is easy and comfortable, even for the beginners. It offers severalfeatures and functionalitiesthat help you run a website or a blog, without the necessity of having a lot of technical skill.The flipside to getting comfortable, though, is that we easily get used to things and almost always forget about the tools and featuresthat we don’t use.While a lot of us would go out and try to find out ways to make our website more functional; there are those, who would not give such kind of exploration a second thought. Of course, nobody wants to read detailed or lengthy notes. We don’t even realize that the knowledge of the features that we are ignoringmay have increased our website’s efficiency or made our life easier. There are some such hidden gems in WordPress that have gone unnoticed for a while, and we have prepared a list of them so that you can begin to use them too.

  1. Stream Videos

Some people need to stream videos on their website, and may find it hard to do it in WordPress. However, with theVideoPro theme (http://www.theme-junkie.com/themes/videopro/), you can easily broadcast videos by embedding them on your website. It will enable you to provide video uploading facility on your website. Another interesting theme that can be used for the same purpose is theTrueMag video theme (http://demo.cactusthemes.com/truemag/).

  1. oEmbed

It is usually one of the most ignored media functions of WordPress. It permits you to paste a single URL in your HTML editor, automatically using the embed code, and generate media content without the help of WordPress plugins. The sites from where media content can be embedded, include YouTube, Twitter, Animoto, etc. For more information, you can visit http://codex.wordpress.org/Embeds
