Why Is ASMR not a thing, on Fiverr

Hi Fiverr’ss

As a VO I was thinking about the huge popular growth of ASMR… I’m surprised no one is tapping in to this market doing personal ASMR.
Not something I would ever get into but there’s a niche waiting on here.

Why would you pay for ASMR here when you can get it free on Youtube. I’d rather watch it live and maybe leave a tip here and there than to pay a bunch of money here.

Well, I love ASMR works like a charm on my savage soul. Someone might pay for a video tailored just for them. Certain triggers and whispering just for them. Just a thought.

It’s not a bad idea, I just don’t think it would work. How long are ASMR videos? Typically 30 minutes or more? It would cost alot. Voiceovers, etc. work on Fiverr because people NEED something personalized - they can’t just grab something off Youtube. Maybe if Youtube wasn’t overly saturated with free videos then ASMR might of worked - I just don’t see it being successful on here anytime soon.

Bob Villa is already on broadcast TV for free. :wink: I think ASMR might not fly well here because people offering custom videos might get requests primarily for extra-extra special (ToS problematic) content. If that was a concern I could see popular VO artists being too nervous to risk it as a gig. It might be a great niche, though. Someone will try it sooner or later.

I recommend “asmr zeitgeist” a real master at this peculiar art form.

Just googled asmr videos.I have personally never listened to them but I have tried listening to sounds of nature like a running river or birds chirping or the melody of the air as it caresses the field etc.
It is very relaxing experience and helped me sleep well,sometimes when I was feeling stressed

Hi there, could you please tell me more about this issue regarding ASMR gig on fiverr. I’m a level one ASMR seller on fiverr but for some Reason fiverr stopped letting asmr gigs show in search results. I contacted seller support and they said that “asmr is not their focus at the moment” and “while my gig is still active” i can Promote it on other social media.

Hi there, it is actually very successful i was able to reach level 1 in just one month of doing asmr on fiverr. But for some Reason fiverr is not showing asmr gigs in search results anymore.

ASMR is kind of controversial. It isn’t likely Fiverr is going to push it and it’s possible they will eventually deny gigs that offer it. I would try other platforms as well if this is all you do. If you can provide other standard services, try that.

Fiverr are restricting certain categories of gigs, ASMR seems to be one, and I heard Cosplay related gigs were another. I think both are part of their current direction of trying to appear more professional. I think it’s a shame, the idea of being to order anything you want (as long as it doesn’t breach TOS) at a really reasonable price, is part of what made this platform really cool.

Some ASMR gigs exists but do no pop up at search, no wonder these work bad…

Mod Note: Gig links removed.

It would be very interesting if a client would request a specific ASMR. However I do agree with someone’s comment that you can just watch ASMR videos for free on Youtube.
