Blogger owners and webmasters are traveling to Fiverr.com in huge numbers, searching for reputable and professional writers for cheap and quick website content. And why wouldn't they? Fiverr is that impressive freelance website where all services are offered for a mere $5. Having just reached the two-year mark, this impressive website now offers over 2 million different “gigs” for everything from professional writing services to social media marketing.
With so many different options of writers available, it can be difficult to determine which one to choose. How do buyers determine which seller will be the best for his writing needs? There are a few simple tips and tricks that can make the search a whole lot easier.
First of all, each gig is offered by an individual user with a very unique profile name. By clicking on the seller’s profile, the buyer can determine the native country of the writer by the appearance of their national flag next to their handle. If a blogger is looking for a native English speaking writer, for example, they probably will not want to hire someone from Bangladesh.
Next, always read the short description of each gig underneath its related title. These write-ups are written by the individual Fiverr sellers themselves. If this written description is filled with grammatical errors and punctuation mistakes, chances are that this is not the writer for you. Fiverr sellers are also allowed to place videos online as a faster way to attract attention. When hiring writers, it is always best to read their gig description as a trail test.
Once you have narrowed down your search to two or three potential prospects, the third step in finalizing a decision for hiring the perfect writer can also include sending each seller an open-ended question in the form of an email prior to spending your hard-earned cash. “Open-ended” means asking the seller a question that requires a detailed response, something other than “Yes” or “No”. This is a neat little trick that allows you to judge the quality of their writing as well as their writing style and response times. After all, 5 Bucks is 5 Bucks!
