How to use Fiverr GIGS for your real estate or small business


all right in this video I’m gonna show
you how to use Fiverr to find some people that can help you with your
projects with your processes your systems all kinds of things now I’m
going to share my link with you on Fiverr and I will let you know that if
you sign up I do get a little bit of a benefit and I would appreciate that very
much I will also be very honest with you
about what I’m finding with the software or with the company what I like and what
I don’t like okay so what Fiverr is is it’s the idea is that you can go online
and find something for five bucks you can find somebody to do something for
you for five dollars okay what I’ll tell you is most of these cases the five
dollar whatever it is they have is super super basic and there’s going to be
upsells involved in all of that that being said it’s still incredibly
inexpensive so I find the average to be closer to twenty dollars what I want to
have something done and there’s also the ability to add a tip which you may or
may not do which could take it up and there’s also a like a one dollar service
charge from Fiverr on every transaction so it’s not really five bucks but that’s
where they start okay now there’s all kinds of things in here from bloggers to
SEO quote unquote which I have to tell you I’m finding a little bit scary
online to graphic designers to Infusionsoft to certain software setups
okay so there’s all kinds of specialists in certain areas so what you’re gonna do
is you would go on here and you can do this a couple ways okay you set up your
account there is a team account so we have a team account it’s it’s free
doesn’t cost anything extra and that way all of us can place our orders through
Fiverr and we can all see the orders we can all pay off one credit card just to
let you know in case you have a team and multiples of you are gonna be doing this
okay now I set out on here to find a couple of things
the one person I wanted to find was a I build team so it’s never one person I
like to have several in each to me honestly it’s a three
five person team of anyone activity so on something like this we’re not gonna
you know these people aren’t coming on full-time they’re not salary employees
are gonna be picking up work they’re gonna become unavailable there’s all
kinds of things so for me if this is a regular thing that I need on a regular
basis I would like to have five of them working and available so if I want to go
on here I can I can get things done like for example when I started this I was
looking for somebody to do transcripts okay so let me show you how that worked
so I went up here to find services and I just try it typed in transcripts there’s
gonna be several way for you ways for you to find people you can use these
menus up here you can use the search bar or you can post a job request so let’s
just say we’re doing a random search so I’m looking for transcription okay so
right here you can see all of the people that do transcripts so let’s just take
this first one for example I will do fast and accurate 20 minute
transcription starting at $5 now click on that so that you can take a look at
what that person does transcribe of twenty minutes five bucks okay delivers
in three to four days so I had a problem with that I need mine back much faster
but down if you hear if you see here you can get extra fast one-day delivery if
you pay $15 extra you can insert timestamps if you play $5 extras there’s
all these upsells now I will tell you I learned we don’t need to go on to Fiverr
to have transcripts you can go to Timmy comm I’m not sure if I have a link for
that one if I do I’ll put it in this write-up and for 10 cents a minute you
can have your your audios transcribed and they’re really not bad and they’re
they’re equal that’s probably what these guys were using anyway I just go in
there and clean them up make sure the names are right the dot-coms all right
that’s what they usually mess up so anything too tricky all right so that’s
just a little tip for you there as far as transcripts go and then I said
alright I’m gonna find somebody to edit my YouTube videos because we make a ton
of youtube videos and I got no time to sit and make graphics now the end cards
and the info screen so I wanted somebody to do that so here it just kind of
generic I typed in YouTube videos and I get this generic selection of people
that do this okay but if you look over here you can
start seeing that it’s scrolling down to a little bit smaller okay so I’m like oh
intros new animated logos alright I don’t need a logo editing and
post-production that might fit so I click on that let’s just say okay so
then I kind of look and basic editing for videos edit your videos slideshows
you know still maybe not so then I go back up here and I go okay so I’m still
not right let me look up YouTube thumbnails see if somebody who makes
youtube thumbnails this is exactly how I started out by the way okay so then
we’ve got kind of a bunch of these guys that make the thumbnails and then maybe
I say let me see if there’s one step further YouTube optimization I want
somebody that’ll optimize my channel and set stuff up that type of thing alright
so let’s just say I’m gonna go through these and look and let me just tell you
I don’t know if I just said this or not I’m gonna repeat myself if I did you
have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince on sites like this a lot of these
people aren’t even actively selling anymore and so I had to go through and
contact a bunch of them to find people are still active don’t just go in there
and place an order message them first to find out they’re still in business okay
and I’ll show you some more tips once we get it open okay so then look down here
now you can say oh I want somebody’s gonna deliver an up to 24 hours I want
it to be within this price range so this price range let’s say 10 bucks this is
the level of the seller level 1 level 2 when you get into the top rated sellers
you’re into you might as well hire up a service provider of whatever you’re
looking for like it’s a contractor or another company because they’re equally
as expensive as a regular business would be but these level 1 and level 2 are
usually okay alright so then look at how much it changed when I went from
delivery time up to 24 hours we now have only three people remaining so let’s
take that off let’s go to any okay there there number backup alright so we could
go 5 to 20 and then here’s something else that I like to do you can choose
the sellers language so this could be whatever language you speak whatever
language you’re putting out in your website who
whatever you’re targeting that’s their primary language and down here if you
look this is a huge key seller location okay so does it matter to you that that
seller is in Canada is in Israel as in Italy is in the United States so
whatever your personal preference is you actually can choose that and this is
their location of where they work and one of the things that I found is that I
have a harder time with the people that are out of the country sometimes using
some of the same software and connections and so I start there and
then see what then go outside of there that’s just my preference
okay so then you’ve got let’s take a look at this one YouTube channel SEO and
you go that looks interesting so you click on this and you look at what they
do SEO audit and report SEO optimization 11 keywords analyzed alright so they set
up your channel layout they have basic modifications they set up your featured
content and your add a channel watermark okay so basically they’re they’re doing
this this is how to set up your YouTube channel so this is 101 but they’re
making sure you have all of your steps done so that you are set up correctly
okay so this really isn’t a super genius work but it steps that you’re not going
to have to do and and that’s good okay so now let’s take a look at what it
looks like okay they’ll do that for ten dollars all right but they’re only gonna
remake two revisions so if you don’t like what they did you only got two
chances to tell them that’s not what you like that’s scary when you’re working
with anybody’s designing anything on your channel extra fast delivery five
bucks video SEO ten dollars maybe you want a
specific video optimized banner design another twenty dollars so you see how
this works now still ten bucks fifteen bucks so you know twenty-five forty-five
dollars to set up your YouTube channel all day long there’s nothing wrong with
that right I think my only complaint my only challenge with this is not the
price by any means it’s by how many revisions like if you’re doing design
that makes me nervous so you’d have to have some really good clear
communication now here’s where it gets good though scroll down and let’s take a
look I must not my United States because this one says
Serbia pull down here and look at their reviews okay
revert reviews nice learning curve great assistance excellent to work with
quality product outstanding experience delivered on time okay now don’t just
look at the most recent cuz it’s sorted by highest I mean don’t look at just the
five stars you want to sort this and look at what you wants now let’s look at
the negative reviews none okay so I’m feeling more and more confident about
this person as we go here’s another thing I like about this person is that
they have recent feedback so they’ve been online here working and doing gigs
in the last six days so you’ve got a pretty good chance of working with this
person okay so now what I would do at this point because I don’t know enough
but I I know enough let’s take a picture of their work see that that looks great
so I know enough to go alright this person looks like they could do the job
and so I am now going to contact them I’m not just gonna place the order and
in this box I’m going to type something in like your gig is exactly what I’m
looking for my only hesitation is that you only do two revisions so what kind
of process are we looking at to help to help you design like what are you going
to go off up to to design do we have a conversation or are you just looking my
websites you know I might ask a couple of questions like that to find out what
they do and I might ask can I buy can if there’s more revisions how much would
those cost so if there’s only two included and you do a third or fourth
how much would those cost and they do those in like separate gigs they would
send you another gig for five bucks or another gig for whatever and as long as
they just say five bucks or ten bucks then I’m fine with it this would be a
risk worth taking okay in my opinion now what you really
gotta watch out for is like the bloggers man that was rough I went through a lot
of that I went through looking for content writers and SEO editors and I
found a couple that can do the job of SEO editing with all of my training my
videos my links my tutorials lot of communication and yet they still are
hitting sealing with things like internal
linking and some of the other things so I I did I do have a couple on from here
that we’ve been able to incorporate for some side work but nothing nothing has
knocked me off knocked my socks off now what we did find I think that I think
having somebody I did find a girl on here that makes video thumbnail she does
a fine job I can’t remember I’m not using her right now but because I found
a different process but she was fine so I highly recommend simple things like
that you know helping you lay out your business cards your flyers you know I
don’t know if I would your logo would have to be a really good person a really
good conversation I I think basic graphics are fine simple things on your
websites could be okay but you got to be really careful but look at some of the
options here so they have people that’ll help you
with your presentations flyer distribution branding services business
plans but look here virtual assistant this is a cool category so what we like
about this category is that you can actually hire virtual assistants by
blocks of time and now you’re not having to go through a virtual service company
and so you can buy a block of hours so you might have a project and say you
know this week I want to get my database updated I want to get everybody in my
database and make sure I have a phone number an email and I want them to have
their Facebook page connected or their LinkedIn page connected or maybe you
have all that software it does automatically but you want to send out
surveys or you want to do whatever it’s project-based okay so you can do the
same thing in here and say I want a virtual assistant and then you can list
what their specialty is data entry admin and support research file conversion
okay and then you can just leave it at any right now these are gonna kind of
scroll through everybody look at this one I will cold call to set local web
design appointments so you know you’ve got prospectors in your maze all kinds
of specialty things in here as well so then you can scroll down and can say
okay I want to make sure they speak English because that’s the only language
I speak and it would be easier if they did and then you know I’m gonna go with
the United States because I because of you know whatever
my business is the regulations or because I want easier communication and
maybe you start there I mean we’ve got people that aren’t in the United States
that are great too so it depends on I’m not necessarily suggesting one over the
other I’m just kind of showing you how to filter it okay so let’s just take a
look at this first one and by the way let me tell you another tip don’t go by
the picture on their screen like like this girl I’m not saying that’s not her
but I had several experiences where the picture was a girl and the person turned
out to be a male and I think what they figure not that we care if we’re working
with male or female but there it was like it was like a I don’t know why but
I felt like I had been she you know scammed or or lied to or something made
me not trust them as much it’s not that I cared at all whether they were male or
female I’ve got males we’re gonna have females working does nah it doesn’t
bother me but it felt like a lie that you had to put somebody but they must do
that for a reason putting choose the pictures that they do so I’m just saying
don’t do I we’re all in a visual world just don’t choose a picture based on who
you think that person is because that may not be them okay alright so let’s
look at you can actually sort these look at this sort by recommended so now you
can sort by the highest rated or you could sort by the best-selling so let’s
look at the best-selling one alright so Jacob comes up here twice let’s take a
look at Jacob okay I always got a little video I’m Jake your virtual assistant
I expertly manage database entries provide research coordinator travel and
a ton more that’s funny we were using database as an example and that’s what
he does okay so if you look up here he does travel planning project management
phone calls formatting cleanup organized classify or tag your files customer
service support basic photo edit editing okay so this is the kind of this isn’t
you’re not going to necessarily go to somebody like this and say hey I want
you to go build out my Infusionsoft campaign so they know nothing about
you’re going to have to provide training provide some kind of resources now so
far the good news is I have found the people that I have hired from here have
been able to very quickly watch all my training videos look at all my examples
and pick up the work almost within 24 hours with only a couple questions so
they seem to be really learning based and and and the ones that I have chosen
have been excellent with communication so again kiss a lot of frogs to find a
prince that’s what I’m finding and you have to make sure your trainee is in
check I mean I really take the time so for example I own several businesses I
have a real estate business in Las Vegas I have a digital marketing company we
built lead generation systems primarily for real estate agents from top of
funnel the bottom of funnel web sites to pay-per-click marketing and I own a
health coaching company so I’m a Keto coach the ketogenic diet coach and this
morning I had decided that I was going to hire somebody to enter recipes into
my website for for meal plans that are specifically designed for my coaching
clients and it is very tedious very time-consuming and I just really don’t
like the work personally and so I decided immediately this is something I
need to leverage out so I found a person I believe qualified I got up this
morning and I made a one-hour training video of and I walked I went all the way
through top to bottom let me make the recipe let me video it all the way
through and then I sent it to her and now she has a checklist in a video knows
exactly what to do okay I’ll give you let me show you what a mine looks like
actually here’s real deal let’s go to shortcuts trekking copyeditor
instructions ok so this is this is I’m not gonna lie guys this is painful to
stop and document a process for most of us is very painful if you’re a real
estate agent you probably really hate this ok unless you have an
administrative edge to you or sites you stopping to do this is incredibly
painful ok so here’s what I did mine is a two step process so I have down here
with the tabs I have the video process and then I have the copy editor process
so they start with the video process and I wasn’t sure if this was gonna be one
person or two people or the same person or how I was gonna do this now I’ve got
kind of two I’ve got different people doing each but I have now found that I
can get one person to do it all so that’s what I’m favoring now is to get
one person to follow it all the way through start to finish so here’s the
steps I upload a video into YouTube they have to optimize the title optimize the
description add the tags add an info card add the end screen add a thumbnail
add to playlist order transcript load transcript to youtube and auto sync if
editing moved to copy editor process tab add transcript as closed captions and if
you’re watching this video and you’ve probably pause that going let me see if
I can take all of her steps go right ahead this this is this is exactly what
you should be doing if you’re going to be if you’re going to be doing this type
of thing those steps go right ahead and write them out and you can you can use
my steps now what I also did for my training person is they can click on a
video optimized title so let’s just say they don’t know how to do it
in this video we’re going to optimize our YouTube title so in each case and
some of these are bunched into the one video in each case if they don’t know
how to do it or they need to know better how I like it done they can click on
that so anytime somebody comes back with a question for me I ask him immediately
did you check the checklist if they did and I have a gap I’ll go back in and out
another item but if they’re just not following their own training they’re not
the right person for me they have to be able to self learn
okay based on my training so my trainings are comprehensive I show them
exactly what I want to do they need to be able to go do it copy editor is the
next one so now I have now they’re gonna take that video there to turn it into a
blog post so add a title add a three to four word slug add an intro out of video
out of call-to-action button at a table of contents add in paragraphs at a
design element etc etc okay I put my little notes and up here is example and
you can see here people are logged into my sheet right now using this and that’s
fine and if you own my training system RankLikeABoss.com you have access to
this in your training system and you can also learn more about all the stuff that
I do at LoriBallen.com my marketing
company is called BallenBrands.com and my real estate team is LoriBallen Team so Ballen, Lori Ballen That’s Me alright so that is that’s really what
you need to be looking for now that what happens is you place an order they
accept the order and then they have a certain amount of time to respond based
on whatever was in the whatever was in the gig agreement three days four days
one day or whatever then what happens is all of your communication is done
through fiber that’s the that’s one of the drawbacks is because you get an
email every time and then you have to click on that you have to log into fiber
to communicate so not my favorite way of communicating and I would say it’s got
some it’s got it’s got a ways to go on their system as far as that kind of
stuff go goes there’s also not a great way to make notes as to who you talk to
who you didn’t talk to who you emailed but there are some you can save in and
these are all completely customizable so I’ve got one called not to use so those
are people that I’ve either used or had a bad experience with so I’ve got them
in that in that category if they’re too high-priced if I’ve chosen them for my
blogger team you know you could add here email so at least you can you could put
it put them in categories but it’s not they don’t have a great
spot for us to keep notes on all these people or to remove them from showing us
their gigs again on each gig they can post a whole bunch of different gigs
which are little jobs so you have the person’s page and then you have all
their little gigs okay so you can all once you use them I think
there was a way I don’t remember now if there’s a way to block them from showing
up in your gigs or not I don’t think so but you would think that’s an obvious so
maybe there is and I just haven’t I just haven’t seen it yet all right now once
the gig comes back if you don’t like it you can request your reviews revision if
you like it you accept it we’re doing all of our all the payments
through PayPal you pay upfront by the way you pay upfront so you need to know
that you pay your twenty bucks then you wait then you do your revisions and then
if there’s a problem you can you guys can negotiate or you can request a
cancellation they can request a cancellation and you can get credit on
your account if there’s a reason for that to happen I’ve had that happen a
couple times where they they just couldn’t deliver in time or they
couldn’t keep up they had too much work that type of thing
it is frustrating when you find people and they say yes I’m gonna do this I get
it I understand it I’m all and then they vanish and you know you’re giving them
access you’ve got to make them a manager of your YouTube account you’ve got to
give them certain you know I paid $10 per person to access my graphic design
software I pay to have people on my copyright my stock photos you know so
it’s a big deal to get them all set up to Adam his users to do all that and
then to have them vanish so those are the drawbacks with Fiverr the positive
thing is you can get things for cheap and some of it’ll be really quality work
and you’re gonna be very happy with that relationship the drawback is anybody can
disappear at any time they could get better I had two that got just got
better offers and disappeared I have I’ve had one that just never responded
we had all this great dialogue and they just vanished once I place the order
they accepted the order they just never did the work that was bizarre and you
know we also don’t know security wise you know there’s there’s some danger
there too so we’re really careful about how we add people to our systems and
what what what we allowed them see and what abilities they have what their user
permissions are so just you know beyond beyond
be on your heads up you know pay attention really look for people that
are working a lot and getting getting good scores and you’ve got to do what
you got in your homework I remember banging my head against the wall on de
floor of doing this come on telling my team like oh I just want to I’d rather
poke my eyes out with toothpicks and talk to one more fiber person because
it’s so there’s it’s just so tedious and there’s so much of it but now I’ve got
some people doing some stuff and they’re doing some good work and it’s relatively
inexpensive than it would be hiring a full-time person and so I’m willing to
go through it to find that and you don’t have to worry about taxes you know
because this is just going to be a write-off through your through Fiverr
being a subcontractor you don’t have to worry about somebody’s hours and their
health insurance and all that so there’s Goods and Bad’s pros and cons just like
with everything else but this is a this is an example for you on how you might
use Fiverr for your business thanks again i’m Lori Ballen with Ballen Brands and RankLikeABoss.com LoriBallen.com and might keep my
health company if you’re interested in getting healthier or losing weight you
can find me at KetoDays.com
