You want to set up a youtube channel? Like to create a login?
I presume you are looking for actual services related to creating a youtube channel rather than getting one set up for you. These related services would be Graphics, Music, Writing, Video Creation etc.
If you are hiring freelancers you need to be specific about what you want - you aren’t going to get one that does all of the above. You need to break down what you need done into the actual services it entails. You then take all the bits and pieces and put it together.
Now, for certain things you might find people who do a service which includes lots of things combined (eg, I have done Google ad campaigns for clients where I supplied artwork and other elements through outsourcing them) but really, having tried offering things like this, Fiverr isn’t really great for managing such projects. It’s messy and not something I would offer as a gig - I do things like that as a custom offer for clients I know. It’s worth noting that if you want someone to supply everything, you are going to pay a significant premium for it on top of the cost of the elements. Most people come to Fiverr for cheaper services so sellers don’t really offer those all-in-one gigs.
PS: I can nearly guarantee that if someone had a “Create Youtube Channel” gig that you would look at it and say that’s a crazy price, I can get graphics for $x, Writers for $y, that’s a ripoff price. Well the cost of saving money is that you have to do the work the coordinator would do.

This is an excellent question and one that too few Fiverr buyers actually ask! Many simply order from the first seller they see and then wonder why they had a problem. Hiring a freelancer is easy but having a particularly good experience is not just a case of hiring a freelancer, on any platform. This is why agencies and middle-men exist.
To go directly to a freelancer yourself you need to be prepared to replace the middleman and do some work. If you are not prepared to do this then go to an agency instead!
Although I am a seller, I have also bought 125 times from approx 40 different sellers for a variety of services. Out of those, I have had 4 negative experiences, or actually just not positive experiences. 1 cancelled, 1 could not deliver on time, 2 delivered work that was outstandingly awful. In each of those, I received a refund. Every other experience was positive and this is not by accident or good luck. I could write pages in response to this but I will keep it to a few points.
I choose to have a mentality that leads to successful experiences on Fiverr.
Buyers who do not know what they want are a nightmare. Would you believe some buyers will ask for a website, blog post, logo etc and give 1 or 2 short sentences as instructions? It’s true! How can a seller deliver what the buyer wants if the buyer does not tell them? You can almost never give too many instructions, but you must give them at the beginning, not after the seller has delivered. Sure, you can ask for modifications at the end - slight adjustments - not new concepts that you never mentioned before. Also, give as much time as possible, some of the best sellers have long delivery times. This also gives you the best chance of lower prices too.
Searching for Sellers
Using the Fiverr search and filters is straight forward and self explanatory. However, searching for quality takes some time. Check reviews (use the filter to check negative reviews). Check portfolios where possible. Check exactly what the gig description says, if it does not deliver exactly what you are looking for then contact the seller first. If your project is big, with a value of $100+ then I suggest doing a trial order with 3 or 4 sellers. For example, for website content. Place an order with 4 sellers you like the look of having checked their reviews and give them the same instructions. With most sellers, you will get between 100–600 words for $5. That’s a huge variation, how much will you save if you go for the cheapest, is the most expensive one worth the extra money? A paid sample of their work will answer those questions for you. Every seller’s work is individual and the result can be subjective. You may like the cheapest guy’s work best - lucky you!
Be prepared to work with the seller
You are hiring a freelancer, not buying from a vending machine. Having given all the information you can, be available to answer questions, approve drafts etc. The Fiverr app is excellent for this. It is one of the few apps that only sends you relevant notifications! Sometimes a quick Q and A through the app can make all the difference in the result and the time spent on an order.
You don’t like what you got? Don’t threaten a negative review, don’t ask for a cancellation - talk to the seller. Give detailed, relevant feedback and ask them to change it. I had a buyer who wanted a cancellation yesterday because he said my translation was not accurate and the grammar was terrible. I asked him to send me some examples of what he meant and he did. Having looked at it, there were no grammatical errors and the translations were accurate. Not being a native English speaker, he was going on what he “felt” was wrong. By giving feedback to me it meant I could assure him of the quality so he was happy to use it. It should be a team effort where everyone goes away satisfied.
Give the opportunity to change/fix errors without any penalty.
Having the mentality of working with a seller means that you should allow for little errors, as is normal in any workplace. Excessively complaining about little details in a big job is extremely annoying for sellers. Sure, these need to be fixed but just say so rather than threatening, whining or cancelling!
My Fiverr rate is approx 33–50% less than what I charge on other freelance sites and my own website. The quality of work is the same. Most people on Fiverr have similar pricing structures. 20% of the fee goes to Fiverr. With the above in mind, if the seller does a good job, give an appropriate tip, I recommend a min. of $5 or 20%. This also makes the seller more keen to work with you in the future.
