What is it?
Crazy Fiverr Cash is a four-part video course that is designed to teach you how to make money on Fiverr selling a gig that offers business card creation. Seriously. That’s it.
If you’re not familiar with it, Fiverr is a marketplace where sellers can offer service-based gigs like writing, design, and even audio and video work — pretty much any service you can offer online.
Sellers setup “gigs”, (which again, can be anything) and sell them for five bucks. Sellers can also offer “gig extras” (upsells) in increments of five dollars. For example, I would offer a standard gig — lets say, writing four hundred word articles — but I could also offer to add two hundred words to the original gig for an extra five dollars, or ten or fifteen, or whatever I want.
I was shocked to find out how little this product actually provides. The whole idea behind it is that you offer to create business cards for people on Fiverr. There’s absolutely nothing “crazy” about that. There’s no secret tip, or unique strategy at all.
Huw is basically telling you to set up a gig. Yeah, thanks, that’s what Fiverr is designed for, I didn’t need you to tell me that. I can’t recommend this product, based on the lack of substance alone.
Before You Buy
There is one upsell aimed at helping buyers of Crazy Fiverr Cash who aren’t good with graphic design.
If that’s you then you buy the upsell, which comes with twenty pre-designed templates and allows you to make minor edits to details like name, address and phone to suit your buyer’s needs.
This upsell will cost you an additional $197 if you purchase it right from the salespage.
However, if you decline the upsell (click “no thanks”) then you’re taken to a downsell page, which offers the same product for $97.
What I Liked
Not much to like about this product. In fact the only thing I did like had nothing to do with the sales-pitch.
Learn Some Photoshop Basics
If you’re like me, you don’t know much about Photoshop. Granted, I use a different tool called Gimp, which I’m much more comfortable with. But the two tools are very similar in many ways.
The fact that I don’t know much about image editing doesn’t keep me from doing it it a lot, and actually enjoying it. So when I get a chance to learn more about this kind of stuff I get a little excited.
A couple of the videos in Crazy Fiverr Cash provide some pretty good tips and tricks for using Photoshop. A lot of it is about business card design specifically but it’s still good, basic-level stuff that might be helpful to you later.
What I Didn't Like
I continue to be amazed at the number of new products coming out, like Crazy Fiverr Cash, that offer nothing new. I could create a product that promised to help you find the world’s best information, then upload a video about how to use Google and that would offer about the same amount of value.
It’s a Saturated Tactic
Once I completed my purchase and gained access to the product’s information I was very dissatisfied. I expected to see something that added to what most people already know about Fiverr, but instead I got four videos that explained how to setup a business card design gig. That doesn't seem like crazy cash to me – it sounds like a minimum wage factory job out of my bedroom.
Just to see, I checked Fiverr to see how many gigs offer this same service. My thinking was, maybe the ‘business card niche’ is an untapped pot of gold, and maybe Huw knew something I (and the rest of the world) didn’t know — in which case I would have retracted my opinions and written an entirely different review.
Turns out I was right though. There is more than 26,000 gigs that offer the same service on Fiverr. That means you’re competing with all those other gigs and that’s a lot of competition.
And those are just the gigs that use “Business Card Design” in their gig’s title, it doesn’t include any gigs that choose different wording, OR ones that offer it as an upsell.
No Controls on the Videos
The icing on the cake here is that all four videos offer the viewers (you and me) no controls over them. That means you can’t adjust the volume, screen size, rewind or skip forward.
Fortunately, I somewhat web-savvy and know that I can click on the clear YouTube logo and watch the videos there, where I have control over it. But for others who don’t know that — which it seems like Huw was counting on — you’re forced to sit through every second.
Now what purpose does that serve? It doesn’t help you in any way and it doesn’t help Huw in any way, at least none I can think of.
It’s common to see videos stripped of their controls when they’re on a salespage or something like that. But I have never seen this done in a members area, after the purchase. It doesn’t make any sense and it creates a terrible experience for his buyers.
Very General Information
I’ve already said it but I want to be clear. It’s important that you understand exactly what you’re getting if you buy this product.
When you buy Fiverr Crazy Cash you’re simply getting a product that teaches you how to setup a gig selling “Business Card Design” on Fiverr.
Is there some difference between setting up a business card design gig and any other gig? No, there is not. No matter what type of gig you offer on Fiverr the setup is exactly the same. Huw doesn’t give you anything beyond what you could get from Fiverr itself, except for a bit of Photoshop training.
You may be asking, “Well, then why did Huw create this product?”. Your guess is as good as mine, with the exception of the obvious: Money. He certainly didn’t create it to provide buyers with new information. He doesn’t have some special way of doing things that separates his tactic from anyone else's — at least no more different than what takes place naturally when two humans repeat the same task.
If you want to know how to setup a gig on Fiverr you can go to Fiverr and follow their instructions. If you want to use Huw’s tactic, simply enter “business card design” when the Fiverr instructions ask you what type of gig you want to offer. That’s it.
