Many online entrepreneurs have been joining Fourerr in 2013. So this series is especially for Fourerr Sellers and how to get the best out of Fourerr and get orders.
Fourerr was established two years ago. The online marketplace lets buyers get certain tasks done for just $4 while sellers benefit through the income they earn by coming up with simple gigs that the buyers are looking for. For more information see the following video.
As a seller on Fourerr, you have the advantage over other sellers on other “more expensive” online marketplaces like Fiverr and GigBucks. On Fiverr, each gig sells for $5 dollars or more. On Fourerr, each gig comes with a $4 price tag. This means that more buyers could get attracted to the service you offer as it costs a lot less when they purchase it from the other site, and still providing the same quality. In fact, the gigs on Fourerr cost 20% cheaper than on Fiverr (Yeah!). You should take this to mind when figuring out the best place to hawk your wares, so to speak. Thus for both Buyers and Sellers, Fourerr is the place to be.
Additionally, you also gain from the quickest customer support throughout all Fiverr Like websites (that’s a fact). If ever you have problems with your profile or you need some issues fixed, all you need is get in touch with the helpful customer service staff and you won’t have any more problems, till date all issues have been resolved. Furthermore, you won’t have trouble clinching a deal with a prospective buyer as Fourerr provides a pretty straightforward buying process. A click here and a click there and a buyer can order your gig. It’s as simple as that.
So, what should you do as a seller? It is very simple, really. You just have to come up with a gig to post on the site. Of course, it is understood that you have already signed up as a seller on Fourerr and that you have a PayPal or Payza account. You can easily fill out the form that says “I will – insert your service here – for four dollars”. When you do that, you will be taken to a page where you can provide a detailed description of the service you are offering, additional info (if applicable) and a relevant picture (Important!). Be sure that your description will explain exactly what you are willing to do for four dollars. Also, be sure to remember to come up with a service that is easy to complete for $4 per gig, it all comes down to time management in order to maximize your returns.
After that, you just wait until a buyer orders your gig. But wait! You can do more than that. You can actually pay a certain fee to get your gig featured. Featured gigs benefit from appearing in a strategic place on the website so that buyers can easily spot them. Also, you have to be careful when picking the category for your gig. If you pick the wrong one, buyers surely won’t find your gig in the right place. You also have to pick a catchy title to grab the attention of buyers. In addition, as explained in the Video you can actively promote your gig on Social Websites like Facebook and Twitter (best return).
Another good way to attract buyers is having a verified account. You can verify your account by submitting identifaction documents. When you submit what is required, your profile will display a badge that boasts of your verification. Of course, the best way to get noticed by buyers is through providing high quality service that all buyers want. When all of your gigs are appreciated by your buyers, you stand higher chances of getting good ratings from buyers. The good ratings will appear on your profile for all Fourerr members to see. Furthermore, if you happen to sell a lot of services to a lot of satisfied customers, you could also become one of the Editor’s Picks. So provide quality.
Ultimately, selling more on Fourerr depends on the relationship you create with the buyers. A simple “thank you” when a buyer clicks the “order” button will go a long way. You can guarantee that the buyer will consider you the next time the same customer needs something done. Also, be sure to deliver the service on the date you agree with and to provide something extra. These two acts will show the buyer that you are reliable and are willing to go another mile. It is also very important for you to remember not to sell anything that you don’t own intellectually rights for, this is not prohibited.
Fourerr does not allow that. In a nutshell, you can make Fourerr your ally if you know the right things to do. Check out the Video for more information on How to make Use of Fourerr as a Seller.
With Thanksgiving just a few days away, don’t you think it’s time to stop and think about all the things you are thankful for? Well, to show how grateful you are, why don’t do you something nice for the other people on Fourerr?
Yes, Thanksgiving Day is the perfect day to do that. Basically, this holiday is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States. Although Thanksgiving technically falls on a Thursday each year, the celebrations can extend well into the weekend.
Historically, the first Thanksgiving Day was celebrated way back in 1863 when the Pilgrims of Plymouth colony thanked God for providing enough food for the pilgrims and the Native Americans who had to endure and survived a bitter winter in New England. It was Abraham Lincoln who made Thanksgiving Day a national holiday. Today, the holiday is a popular holiday for families and friends who gather at the dinner table to share sumptuous meals with turkey, side dishes, and some good old pies.
So, this day being the day for giving thanks for bountiful blessings, maybe you can go out of your way to thank others for something that they have done for you. Here’s how:
Offer to do something for charity
A tangible and meaningful way to show your thankfulness for the good things in your life is to do a nice thing for somebody else. Yes, offering to make greeting cards or paint your own masterpieces for $4 and then giving the proceeds to your chosen charity is one way to go about it. Not only will the chosen organization thank you for it, your buyer will also appreciate the fact that he or she was able to contribute something for a good cause. And guess what? You can also get a thank you in return!
Share your skill with others
Gratitude does not only entail actually saying the words “thank you”. Simple acts of kindness and helpfulness actually amount to so much more when it comes to giving thanks. Thus, when you offer your skills and talents on Fourerr, you are actually thanking a higher power for what you have or what you can do. So, even though you gain something from helping others finish their tasks or complete a job that they need to finish, the fact that you are offering your services at a cheap price is laudable.
What is Thanksgiving without turkey? As such, you can offer your buyers the rare chance to use your grandmother’s well-guarded roast-turkey-and-side-dish recipes. The help you can extend to someone who is not that skilled in the kitchen will surely be appreciated.
Additionally, you can offer to teach others how create Thanksgiving-related crafts that the youngest to the oldest members of the family can enjoy.
The small things that you can do for others speak loudly of the gratefulness that you feel inside. So, go ahead, thank someone and bask in the glow of the feeling that being grateful can give!
With millions of web users online every day and over 350 million websites, it is definitely easy enough to feel like a small fish in a big pond. Trying to draw people to your sites is one of the difficult ventures that you may embark upon as a website owner, and no matter how many advertising methods you try, it may all feel like it is vain. Translating your site is one major step you can make toward reaching out to more people and improving credibility, sales and ratings.
Want to know the top 5 reasons why you should translate your website? Read on…
1) Boost Your Credibility
When you are advertising a local business, no matter whether you are a website designer, an insurance sales company or a seamstress, translating your website might not be on the top of your priorities. However, a local business should do so in order to prove that they are just as credible and offer just as good quality services as other international companies. Showing a translated site shows a willingness to deal with people in all countries.
2) Get Recommendations
When you open up your site to people from all over the world by giving them the option of viewing your website in their own language, you are more likely to gain fans. Recommendations from regular visitors to your site will see you get more impressions from your ads, make more sales and reach out to a whole new demographic.
3) Increase Sales
If a visitor comes to your site and it is simply written in one language, you are isolating them straight away. You may be offering a product that they could benefit from, but as they can’t understand the site they will more than likely move on. With a translated site they will be able to view your products and services as any other user would and perhaps make a purchase. By opening up your site to others, you are therefore increasing the likelihood of making a sale!
4) Reach Out to More Web Users
People all over the world use the internet, and by allowing them to view a translated version of your site, you can speak to those people. If the site is translated well, the visitors to your site will also be able to understand more about your brand and the services or products that you are offering rather than having to patiently translate everything themselves.
5) Be the Best in Your Field
Don’t leave it up to Google to translate your site! Stand out from all the other sites out there and offer translation options in multiple languages to reach out to new clients and customers. This will show a willingness to reach out to others and communicate.
Buyers – Make sure your site at least has two translation options, if not more – use Fourerr to get help from Native speakers from other countries or professional translators.
Sellers – Got a talent for translating? Post a translation gig on Fourerr and start making big bucks!

Many people think of New Year’s Eve and they are just thinking about which parties they are going to attend, what to wear, how much to drink and whether they’ll be kissing anyone at midnight. But when it comes to work, the truth is that the New Year is a great time to do something new and start afresh.
The first day of January might not seem the best time to start working, after all, most people will be nursing their hangovers well into the afternoon. However, this is the best time for you to set up a type of ‘business plan’ for the coming year.
Even if you don’t see yourself as the business type, if you are selling gigs on Fourerr, you are clearly interested in making money. If your gigs from 2011 haven’t sold very well, then maybe it’s time to come up with some new ones. Think of the types of skills that you have and go from there…
On the other hand, if your gigs sold really well last year then continuing with the reputation you have already created for yourself seems like the sensible option. To develop your work further however, you need to start thinking about how you can offer more.
Think back through the year – have any buyers contacted you and asked you whether you could provide a different service to the ones that you are offering? If you are offering PLR (Private Label Rights) articles and you got more than one message from prospective buyers during the year asking if you write original articles, then create a gig offering original articles!
Similarly, if you are offering to sing songs by a particular artist, offer gigs that opens this up to ANY song in the world! Or if you are an impressionist, offer more impressions than you did in 2011. The more you offer, and the more diverse your gigs are, the more likely you are to get sales and therefore make money.
So get thinking about what the New Year can bring for you; more clients, more contacts, and even more prosperity!
I hope you enjoyed this post! And if you did, please feel free to share it!
Happy New Year!

Now, that’s a lot of gigs, so you are probably wondering how he got started on Fourerr. Well the answer he gave us was an easy one: “In a Google search!”
