UpWork vs Fiverr

Discussion in 'Copywriting' started by vicktard, Mar 20, 2020.

    I've used both avenues extensively and can say objectively that Fiverr is the best resource for copywriting and small jobs vs. UpWork, which is good for longer jobs like SEO or Marketing gigs.

    For Virtual Assistants, I've used 'onlinejobs.ph' very successfully and would only go there. Free advertising for onlinejobs.ph!

    Adding my 2c here to be HELPFUL based on my experiences over the past 5 years. :)

    They have grown a lot since truly "Fiverr" times. There are packages and custom gigs that can be sent through messages, tailored to your needs. I've noticed that the Level 2 sellers and the Top Rated Sellers do good work. Cannot comment on the "Fiverr's Choice" ones, though.

    Fiverr is definitely better for proving your skills and growing as a professional as compared to Upwork. Most of its tests are free and it allows you to prove your worth to the buyers. The channels for communication and delivery between the provider and the client are definitely well-crafted on fiverr. so its a good choice to start from there.

    Fiverr.
    I made a good amount of fiverr but upwork has so much attitude problem.
    Like they charge you for every application you send to buyer.
    They would ban you if you apply for too many jobs
    They would ban you and eat your money for no reasons(fiverr can also ban you but they release your money)

    IT's too bad to make such assumptions I would say totally and absolutely. You really shouldn't do that. UpWork is a real freelancer website and that Fiverr simply selling membership packages absolutely and entirely anyway for many many channels.

    I have had profiles on each of the platform but could never really kickstart them. I would love to get to know some things about Upwork and Freelancer. Also, do I need connects on Upwork for bidding on a project?

    When I started freelancing, I never planned to put myself on Fiverr, Upwork, or any other online freelancing marketplace. When there's so much competition in one place, naturally prices are lower and the customers aren't the best (And I'm speaking from experience. I was one of those annoying customers lol). So instead I get clients from going to local networking events at night (At least once a week. Sometimes three times a week). During the day, I just write content. Articles, blog posts, and emails newsletters to build up my assets.

    Fiverr is better for novices and smaller jobs- you get a clear timeframe, expectations are set. With upwork, I have found things can drag out. I personally have had more success with Fiverr and it is my preferred platform.
