All about Fiverr
Fiverr is an online marketplace that allows people from across the world to offer tasks
and services (gigs) to potential clients. The site gets its name from the lowest amount that
each user can charge for gigs to sell, which is $5 USD. This is known as a "microtransaction"
website. Fiverr is the largest in the world of its kind.
Even though most gigs are priced at $5, their services generally range between $5 to
as much as $500. The site also allows users to offer Gig Extras or peripheral features (add-ons)
that complement their main gigs.
All sorts of freelancers and hobbyists use Fiverr to, well, make money. Some users are
even quite lucrative on the site, thanks to their Fiverr gigs. Don't be fooled by the low price
of gigs on Fiverr though. Many sellers make a lot of money on Fiverr. Though, you're probably
wondering to yourself, how do you make money on Fiverr in the first place?
Tips for making money on Fiverr
Anyone can make money from setting up a few Fiverr gigs. Though, a lot of people find
it difficult to actually keep making money on the site. So, to help out, here are some tips
from Fiverr experts that may help people like you make money on Fiverr.
1. Provide a unique service or, alternatively, provide a service that you know others
can use. By now, there are many users on Fiverr doing similar gigs - don't let that stop you,
though. As long as you have something that people feel comfortable buying, you have the
potential to make money on the site.
2. Find gigs to sell that you can do repetitively. Most of the Fiverr gigs you complete
will be the same gig. If you can't handle working on the same gig for different clients, you
won't be able to take advantage of the opportunity.
3. Deliver your Fiverr gigs well ahead or on time. They say to under promise and over
deliver for any gig, and that rings true for Fiverr gigs. It's important to be honest about
your delivery times on Fiverr, so your clients will understand how long you may need to complete
the gig. Don't forget to do your best to provide a quality gig-many of the best Fiverr users
get repeat customers for that reason.
4. Optimize your Fiverr listings. You can't just make a plain Fiverr listing - take the
time to add photos, videos and a keyword-optimized description to your Fiverr gigs. Taking
time to ensure that your listings are 'visible' will allow more people to find them and, well,
5. Work towards becoming a Level 1 Seller. Fiverr has seller "levels", each with their
own unique set of perks like the ability to add Gig extras. The most important thing about
these levels however, is that they place a badge next to your name and gigs which allows buyers
to trust you more. Getting to level 1 is not difficult. It only requires you to be a member
on Fiverr for at least a month and to complete 10 orders.
6. See what your competitors on Fiverr are doing. Take a look at the gigs that are similar
to yours that sell the best. What keywords do they use? What gig extras do they offer? What
kind of gig photo or video do they have? Use this as inspiration for your own gigs and to get ideas.
If you always wanted to turn a passion, hobby or skill into a great side-income, Fiverr
is a terrific place to start. It's free to sign up and to use. Fiverr does take a 20 percent cut from
all your earnings so it is something to consider when starting your money making journey on
the microtransaction website.
