Hi guys!
What can you say about Fiverr?

    You get what you pay for.

    I'm not really worried about who charges what anymore. Do a good job with your work, and the right business will flow in.

    It's a great way to make less than minimum wage, and it FULL of stolen design assets. =D

    +1 to these.

    If you only think your work is worth $5, then sure. Go for it.

    I can offer my service through Mintees lol email me.

    Blasphemy.

    I have never used this site before today... out of curiosity, I paid for 3 services claiming to evaluate my instagram and provide me with a report on how to optimize my account to attract more attention. haha Posting nudes of myself flexing is an option, I know..but my wife wouldn't like that very much.

    Well, Nike shoes being made in China/ Vietnam and paying their workers pennies, is unethical. But yet we have no problem purchasing those for a cool $120+

    To each his own, if you're worried about being undercut by designers on "Fiver" you've got bigger problems than things being unethical.

    But in my opinion, companies like these who offer cheap services
    are stealing jobs and opportunities for talents who give their quality
    work for businesses.

    I think that is the general feeling, and I used to feel that way too, but it's wrong.

    They are not "stealing" anything, they are effectively targeting the people who are too uneducated on the services they are seeking, have little to no money, and put zero effort into their company. Ask yourself, are these the kind of clients I'd want to work with anyway? -No

    There is plenty of work out there...you just have to find it, or you have to work harder until it finds you. Sites like Fiverr and whatever other crap is floating out there on the web will never steal money or work away from a good designer. A good designer will attract good clients, good clients respect their brand and they will pay for your work.

    I stand by my comment and I don't lose any sleep over it. They can have those type of clients and I think it's deceptive too as I'm sure $5 is mostly a starting lure and they probably end up paying more in the end, more often than not. If you don't see anything wrong with it then clearly you have much to learn.

    I will first start off by saying, I'm not sure who you have never seen your work but... I can tell you this...I know what i'm talking about. I will give you the same reply that I gave to the above since it's obvious that you did not read it. Taking on the attitude (it's so wrong they are stealing work for $5) like the one you've chosen...sir, clearly- you are the one who has much to learn.

    lol.. ..calm down Dan, calm down, I'm not your enemy. I did read your comments and I agree with your analysis, the only thing I disagree with, is your unfriendly disposition towards me, when I directed no such unfriendliness towards you. You see? This only hurts Mintees.

    It's not unfriendly at all, just blunt and unemotional, but that's just how I do things. I'm a super nice guy ;)

    And in response to your comment of " If you don't see anything wrong with it then clearly you have much to learn."
  • TopJimmy

    Well.. ok Dan, my bad I guess, please forgive me :o) ..I guess I just didn't know if, by quoting me, you were agreeing with my remark and then speaking more wisdom to the wind (which I agree with lol) or disagreeing and directing sarcasm at me with the "if you're worried" & "you've got bigger problems".. ..Dangit! I got to be more careful!.. ..Sorry zamboaga! lol ..Didn't mean to hi-jack your thread! ..Love you all! ;)~
  • TopJimmy

    I'd be more likely to go this route, http://tshirt.designcrowd.com/ than Fiverr, but personally, I don't like it very much more, lol!

    I guess this is so true. Great brands want quality designers.

    agreed. there are plenty of cheap businesses out there who are simply unwilling to pay X for a design, likewise, there are a lot of artists who offer lowball prices. This is just a fact of life and no amount of internet whinging will change that. A good designer will indeed attract higher value clients and those clients will gladly pay for better work and professionalism.

    I've never bought into the idea that all artists are created equal crap, because they aren't. There are plenty that are great and have a large body of work to showcase their skills - these are the ones that bring in clients. But if you're just starting out and have nothing to show for it you're clientelle is going to be very small and you're not going to be able to command high prices for your work. it's like any profession when you break it down.
