Types of Fiverr Buyers
Why do we call the buyers a simple buyer? Because this type of buyer will always mark your order “complete” and most times give you a tip when they are satisfied with the delivery. Gigs they often buy are: SEO gigs, Market research, email marketing and social media.
Fiverr is filled with many of this type of buyers. The smart internet marketer makes money on Fiverr by reselling fiverr gigs. They usually want super-fast and cheap service.
