Before knowing how to make money on Fiverr, you might be asking what is Fiverr. Well if truth be told I hadn’t really heard much about Fiverr until a few years back. A friend and I were thinking about dabbling with a couple of gaming websites.
I had been doing really well at writing articles on Hubpages. On Hubpages, I was writing a series of articles about a certain video game. I happened to be very good and it was making me a good amount of money each month.
Moving forward I decided that the best thing to do would be to start my own blog/website and away I went. The only issue was I was charging into it headfirst without any idea of what I was doing.
So I hit a few stumbling blocks. Firstly I needed a Header image. I also needed a Logo and I needed someone to help me write the content. I couldn’t churn it out quick enough as I had published straight away with no articles.
Anyway, I am rambling a bit. This is where however I came across the site and this is I guess my Fiverr review.
Launched in 2010 Fiverr are a freelancing site and one of the largest global marketplaces for services. Back when I needed help I managed to find people to do all the work I needed. Not only that but at a very cheap price as well. The Fiverr logo I got was really good quality. and the price was good.
From graphics and design to digital marketing to writing and content creation, it is all there. Go on, pick what you are after and find the right skilled person who can match your requirements.
So that’s all very well Lee, how do you make money from Fiverr then?
You become a Fiverr seller. Then you can utilize your skillset and use these skills to become a seller on Fiverr. You might not think you have the skills but there is such a comprehensive list of skills available. So you may find something that you could sell. If you think there might not be something for you then I suggest to go and check out the jobs available.
I headed to gaming as that is my forte and there were a few sellers that just sell their time. Gamers who may be lonely and not have a friend to play with pay to play online with some of the sellers available on Fiverr. Ok so that one is a little weird but hey, if you think you have no skills then just think of that example and go and have a look at the jobs on offer and perhaps type into the search bar something you have experience in.
Get Started With Fiverr:
First thing you need to do like most selling sites is to create a profile. Your profile is super important. As with anything you do when you’re competing against lots of other people you need to make sure your profile stands out. If it does stand out then this will likely see you near the top of search results in your particular skill set.
Firstly the picture needs to be a close-up headshot. People like to see faces and it gives them a sense of who you are. Make sure it is central and you are smiling. No one wants to hire a grump.
When writing the description about you, keep it clear and make sure it is selling you as a person. Dont be afraid to bring some of your personality out into that description and make it shine.
The same when selling your gig. When creating your gig Make sure it is compelling, professional but most of all captures a little bit about you. Stay on topic, dont wander off, people want to know what your skills are and how you can help them. Remember your profile is the only thing people see before hitting that purchase button so it needs to be right.
Packages are a way to give your customers various choices when it comes to using your services. The customer may decide that their budget is a bit lower and although they still would like your services they may need a reduced service based on the budget they have.
You can offer 3 different bundles. This then means your customers can then choose from 3 different pricing points. This gives both you and the customer the most options and leads to more sales.
When it comes to easy ways to make money with Fiverr, this is it. With Fiverr there is a huge amount of potential in upselling. You may be selling a digital product such as a Fiverr logo for a website. Well, you can also upsell by offering the logo in a whole package including different fonts, sizes and including logo vectors, etc.
You may wish to be able to alter the sizing of your logo so you can use it in any kind of format and this is where the extra charges come in.
Although the initial purchase may only have been $10 there is a good chance that the customer will want some of the extras you are supplying and will pay more to get those extras. This, in turn, means more revenue for you and the customer is getting the extras they need.
I have spent a few hours searching on Fiverr to see what kind of gigs are proving popular at the moment. Social media is now everywhere we look. You probably use social media a hell of a lot more than you think. I am what you would call an average user yet when I checked with an app on my phone I had opened Facebook 27 times during the course of my workday.!!
The way the internet and social media is growing means that online businesses and websites/blogs etc need to integrate social media into their platforms as a way to grow. Unfortunately, this can take time and dedication which most growing websites owners dont have.
This is where you can come in and help. The demand for Virtual social media assistants is huge and getting bigger each year. You can set up packages on Fiverr whereby you can schedule posts or photos etc and organize adding groups or liking certain posts. You are basically acting as that person or company and providing a visible online presence.
Most of these services are based on either 7 days or 28 days and come in a few different packages but here’s the tip. You dont even need to be super skilled. If you use all forms of social media frequently then that is your skill.
If you can listen to the action plan of the person hiring you and carry out simple instructions then there is money to be made.
Fiverr is a great site and whatever your skillset may be you can be sure there will be something there for you. Sign up today, have a look around and see where your skills can fit in and then create than profile and get started.
