Fiverr is a popular web site where people share things they’re willing to do for $5, referred to as micro-gigs.  Launched in February 2010, the site’s traffic immediately spiked to over 400,000 unique visitors by March and regularly receives over 100,000 visitors per month according to Compete.com.

Like group-buying, the revived ecommerce  business model made popular again by Groupon, Fiverr has been one of the first sites to take off in the micro-gig space.

Fiverr Clones

Fiverr clones will likely grow in popularity in 2010/2011, the same way Groupon clones have in 2009/2010. 

Earlier today, Flippa reported the sale of Zeerk.com, a Fiverr clone that has only been online since August, but claims to have 3,000+ members.  The site sold on Flippa previously, but due to an unpaying bidder, the auction was re-listed.

Though Flippa listings are often suspect, as discussed over on a recent thread at MorganLinton.com, it’s not surprising to see a Fiverr clone get acquired.  The site has been covered by the New York Times and other major news publications, intrigued by what people are actually willing to do for $5 – things like ‘call to get out of a bad date’ to prank calling anyone in an old lady crazy voice.

We’ll have to wait and see how the transaction all works out, but expect Fiverr clones and micro-gig web sites to soar.

The Flippa website says the final price was $60,000, not $52,000, any reason why it went up? This is the second fiverr clone site to be sold on Flippa that uses the Agriya fiverr clone script. The other site was gigbucks.com which sold for about $5,500. More remarkable about Zeerk.com is that the owner is an individual from India - that will go quite far!
