Fiverr is one of the most popular freelancing website and service that have more than a billion users all over the globe. Whether you are looking for professionals to do small jobs or you are looking for work in your industry, Fiverr has millions of jobs and thousands of new jobs appear every day. Earlier, Fiverr was only available via their official website and the platform allowed professionals to connect with clients.
Interestingly, freelancing has become a preferable choice of professional and it is predicted to become the largest marketplace in upcoming years. Now Fiverr is available via mobile apps too; you can download their mobile apps for Android, iOS, Windows Phone and BlackBerry devices. Fiverr started as a “$5 service” where clients were able to find professionals available to do small jobs for just $5.
For example, if you want a company logo or some other small job, you’d find hundreds of freelancers on Fiverr for that task. However, now Fiverr has become way more than just $5 jobs and you can find long term positions there too. Everything that could be done online is already available on Fiverr; you can find freelance web designer, app developer, virtual assistants and writers on Fiverr.
Although Fiverr didn’t introduce the concept of freelancing website and services but it surely made it simple and faster. It takes few minutes to few hours to find a suitable person for the job. The best thing is, you can check their profiles, previous work and rating to decide whether a particular professional is a good match or not. Fiverr not only provides a hiring platform but you can also communicate with different professionals to provide details and instructions.
In other words, you don’t need a separate communication medium like Skype or Hangouts to talk with freelancers. Fiverr offers jobs in more than 120 categories and this number is growing each day. Fiverr has been facing tough competition from other similar services like Upwork formally known as oDesk and Elance which is now acquired by Upwork. Though both of these websites and services provide freelance services all over the globe, but they are based on different concepts.
Upwork is specifically designed for companies and individuals who are willing to spend top dollars on the best talent and Upwork has introduced strict policies and hiring process that helps employers separate the best talent from others. On the other hand, Fiverr encourages freelancers with little or no experience at all to join the freelancing community and offer their services for lesser price in start of their career. In other words, Fiverr offers a learning experience where new freelancers can learn new things by doing smaller jobs.
Fiverr mobile app has slightly different user interface on its iOS and Android mobile apps but that is mainly because of different platforms and both apps share the similar features. You can send and receive messages via the app itself. Other than that, you can also find new jobs and apply to those jobs directly from the mobile app.
