What Are Microjob Sites?

What Are Microjob Sites?

Today we’re going to be doing a bit of trivia, helping you to understand exactly what makes a ‘microjob’ website. A microjob website is one that focuses on smaller, gig based jobs that are offered on a freelance basis. By freelance here, we mean the ability to freely offer your services on an open market, so literally anyone can trade their services. For this reason, they became hugely popular around 2010 onwards with the surge of online services, for a whole host of jobs including graphics, content creation and almost anything you can think of.

In fact you may have heard of a few popular ones, such as Fiverr and UpWork. These are what could be considered ‘microjob’ websites, however as of 2020 they seem to be taking a wider approach by targeting wider services normally reserved for freelance sites, so the gap here is closing fast.

Should I Setup A Freelance or Microjob Site?

With the gap closing between these two types of websites, its a great time to get started with your own unique offering. Taking a fresh approach can lead to a winning formula, for you to become the next best ‘Fiverr’ or ‘UpWork’ style website. We offer a host of reviews for Microjob and Freelancer scripts that we’d recommend you take a look at, which can be found here.

What Are Some Common Microjob Sites?

If you’re serious about setting up your very own Microjob website, then you need to consider some of the current market leaders in this sector. Understanding how these large organisations are operating and what they are focusing on, should give you a better understanding of how you can provide a unique service. Check out the following list and take some notes, you’ll be surprised with what you find!

  • UpWork (www.upwork.com)
  • Fiverr (www.fiverr.com)
  • PeoplePerHour (www.peopleperhour.com)
  • Bark (www.bark.com)

Finding Your Niche

The next step to understanding exactly how you can go about creating your own microjob site is to find your niche, by niche we mean target audience. Finding your target audience is key to success, so should be carefully considered against those already targeted by larger competitors. A practical niche example that we’ve come up with is to target smaller jobs (like those below $10), as sites like Fiverr move away from this business model, it could well be a good time to launch your own contender. Obviously you can dive deeper than this, like targeting only women for example, but we want to keep it straight forward so you can easily understand what we’re getting at.

4 Quick Tips For Fiverr Clone Script Success

Over the years we’ve been working with Fiverr Clone Script we’ve come across many different techniques, tactics and strategies that have been put to use. Out of the ones we’ve seen succeed, we have broken down four in particular for you below, so we hope you can put them to good use.

1. Customising Your Layout & Functionality

There are many common layouts and functionalities shared between different Fiverr Scripts, however most tend to opt for the standard ‘Fiverr’ official websites approach. Although this may be an effective layout, there are always things that you can improve to to either set you apart from competitors or make more money from your site. We’ve given a few examples below, to give you a few practical ideas.

Small scale customisation can easily be made with most Fiverr Scripts, although this does depend on the script you have in the first place. The one we shall focus on here is the Pricerr Script from Sitemile, which is based on WordPress and features a built in framework (or theme panel) which allows you to make small changes at the click of a button. These features include the ability to add widgets, functions and applications to your page (such as review graphics) along with technical changes such as payment integration, user panels, admin panels and auto-email notifications to users.

When it comes to larger customisation we suggest taking a look at some of the higher tier packages available, such as the ones offered by Sitemile. There are often a host of ‘larger’ customisations available at the click of a button, with examples including integration with Bitcoin, Multi Currency and Translation features that you can take advantage of.

2. Using WordPress As A Content Management System

Although we’ve put a focus on this many times before, utilising the WordPress Fiverr Scripts that are available is one of the biggest opportunities that you can be given, why? Because its handed to you on a plate with all of the options given to you through vast frameworks and control panels which are generally included with WordPress based scripts. Whether you’re a beginner, or have good experience with the development of a website, we recommend taking a good look at the WordPress options available.

3. Set Yourself Apart From Competitors

Setting yourself apart from competitors is another point we repeat, time-after-time. It is essential that you give customers are reason to use your Fiverr Clone over the actual ‘Fiverr’ website. The best way to do this, is by setting yourself apart. You can do this in many ways, by targeting particular niches, or if you don’t want to narrow down your audience, then why not target worldwide by having active translation and multi currency features. The world really is your oyster.

4. Always Add A Blog To Your Fiverr Script

A huge tip to help bring traffic to your site is to add a blog. Having a blog allows you to target a larger range of keywords, using long-form content rather than having to re-purpose pages to target set keywords. Content examples that can help you bring in traffic include “make money writing articles online” where you could explain the role your Fiverr Clone has to play in helping users make money online, by offering content writing services.

WordPress Fiverr Script Pros And Cons

We’re often asked the question “Why should I use WordPress Fiverr Script over a PHP based option and are there any significant differences?

Well there are actually some clear differences between the two, let us explain. A PHP based website uses a database stored in your FTP server, where you can manually upload files (like a pre-built theme or script), where-as WordPress is a CMS or content management system, which means it’s setup specifically to create a website and ‘manage’ content. PHP based websites require a much longer initial setup than those of WordPress, so this should be considered when choosing between the two options.

WordPress is a pre-built content management system, where-as PHP you are relying on coded frameworks from the publisher

For most people we recommend WordPress Fiverr Script over PHP due to the extended setup involved, requiring a lot more technical knowledge than most people have. However if you are confident with the setup of a PHP site and have a level of coding knowledge, then it can be a powerful platform that you can build on. However, in our opinion WordPress wins hands down for a whole host of other reasons, so we’ve outlined a few below.

Additional Benefits Of WordPress Fiverr Script

  • Ability to install 1000’s of pre-built plugins (such as Yoast SEO)
  • Intuitive content management system
  • Optimized out of the box for SEO

WordPress Fiverr Scripts On The Market

The next question we hear you ask is what WordPress Scripts are available? Well there are a few, but like most things in life they are not all equal. It’s worth taking the time to assess each option and the different functionalities they have, before comparing pricing and seeing how it fits in with your budget. We’ve actually featured two of the best WordPress Fiverr Scripts on the market (in our opinion), which are Prefive and Sitemile so we’d suggest starting your search there.

Further Advantages Of WordPress

  • Easy installation to your site via a .zip theme file
  • Framework for quick customization options
  • Simple payment processing setup
  • Straightforward code editing features
  • Low maintenance and ongoing costs

If you haven’t realised one of the main factors of WordPress Fiverr Scripts yet then let me give you a clue, usability. Using WordPress makes it simple to do things that would take you 10 minutes plus EACH with a PHP script. And time is money,

Ranking For Google With WordPress Fiverr Script

Ranking for Google or any Search Engine for that matter can be a daunting task, especially these days when there are hundreds of people fighting for the number 1 position. This is why for us it is a hugely important factor, as without traffic it is going to be very difficult to attract the amount of clients you need to make a good commission. Luckily however, the SiteMile Pricerr Theme is SEO optimized out of the box, using up-to-date HTML and coding language to ensure a high performance from Search Engines.

We recommend pairing the Sitemile Pricerr Theme with a powerful SEO plugin such as Yoast SEO to optimize each page for particular keywords, for example a collection of gigs based around article writing could be targeting the keywords “Low Cost Article Writing” so there really are a number of great options available.

A Final Tip

A quick, final tip we have for you is to make use of the blog features that come with WordPress. The use of a blog allows you to target a whole host of additional keywords, even those not directly related to your site or business. These articles will help to bring people to your website, where you can then explain exactly what it is your site is all about. To this day, this is still one of the most effective long term strategies available to helping you get your site off the ground, good luck!
