Is Fiverr worth it?
When it comes to Fiverr.com, I’m late to the party.
Don’t get me wrong, I was completely aware of the brand and website, but had previously only taken a brief curious look. And there was a single reason why…
Quite a few of my online business acquaintances are graphic & web designers, who surprisingly didn’t have many positive things to say about Fiverr.com, and hearing all their stories regarding poor quality work and copyright disasters, I gave Fiverr.com a wide birth like I do with any prospect of a Brexit conversation.
That was until last week
I needed a new logo for PaulOBrien.com and the usual guy i’d used in the past lacked his normal creative flare with ideas, plus he is so busy at the moment that my piddly logo design wasn’t a real priority for him, which I understand.
I needed the logo ASAP so after a quick search I decided to give one of Fiverr’s freelancers a bash at putting together a logo for me. As I was dipping my toe in the water for the first time, i’d decided to try the basic package, which included:
- 5 Revisions
- 2 Initial Concepts Included
- Logo Transparency
- Printable Resolution File
The price was a whopping £9.80 (thats right, Nine UK pounds and Eighty Pence) including tax and the £2.00 Fiverr.com service feee, I obviously wasn’t worried about getting ripped off.
Job brief written, £9.80 paid and order submitted, 24 hours later and the logo below was ready for download.

Now, before all the negative comments start, I completely agree it’s not the best in the world, but come on, £9.80 and work complete in 24 hours, that isn’t bad is it?
Obviously my opinion is based on my one experience, but without a doubt at this stage I would give them the thumbs up.
It’s a thumbs up from me
I also think I now understand why my colleagues didn’t speak very highly of Fiverr.com, my guess being UK graphic designers feel the same about Fiverr Gigs as black cab drivers do about Uber.
I totally understand their position, but for fast turnaround digital work which isn’t going to cost you an arm and a leg, Fiverr.com is where I will be booking my next project.
