    Micro Job Sites - Fiverr type Alternatives

    I am currently investigating the prospect of buying a microjob site improving it as many I have tried are a waste of time, poorly managed, fraudulent sellers, and more

    What I am seeking from you is what you do and do not like about microjob sites?

    It does not matter if you are a buyer or seller of services there, I want to know what you think!

    I want to know:

    How you would improve things?
    How you would change the marketing to drive more buyers/sellers?
    Would you offer an affiliate program?

    I realize that there is many things I have not listed, just slam me with your thoughts!

    I was about to post this in this thread, but the system suggested a new thread.

    SEOClerks.com is pretty good! I've bought some valuable gigs on there, I do believe that the site has potential with the uniqueness it has over Fiverr which you could say is its nearest competitor. As a seller, I got my 2 gigs featured that boosted my sales like a rocket, now I'm a well reputed member there and earning passive income every month. The affiliate programme is quite helpful too as are the coupons + gig sales.

    I like seoclerks too. I buy a lot from them. I also try to sell there, but no luck selling.

    Thanks for the replies!

    John, do you believe the extra expense of featuring your gig, was the force behind having sales? or was it something else?

    Westsider, any thoughts as to why your gigs are not selling?

    what are the areas of expertise that each of you are selling in?

    I am negotiating with three possible MJ site owners, but unknown whether I will get either of them. All look promising.

    Anyone else, please supply your input as to what you do or do not like about MJ sites!

    I personally have used 5 different MJ sites, as sometimes a particular service is not available on one, but is on another. However all MJ sites seem to suffer from similar problems.

    I think only a few people make real money on these MJ sites. I base that conclusion on the messages I receive on the sites. They have all the characteristics of dying sites to me. A tiny number of people send repeat messages, most people send one or two messages then die off. If you're lucky enough to offer a good service that becomes popular, you will earn money. If you don't become popular quickly, you may as well forget it.
