How To Make Money Online on Fiverr

Most of you probably won’t know this but my first taste of online income came from being a freelancer on Fiverr.com.
It was only after I had a basic idea of how the internet economy works that I put all my efforts into blogging and affiliate marketing (I will tell you why later).
I know a lot of you out there are looking for some ways to make money online (not necessarily through blogging) and this post is going to show you just that; How to make money online outside blogging using Fiverr.com.

What Is Fiverr?

Fiverr is an online marketplace that sells services for $5. Yep… on Fiverr you can find people selling their services for just $5.
If you have a look on Fiverr.com, you will see some crazy, and I do mean crazy servicespeople are willing to do for $5.
However, if you do not want to be so crazy (which in some cases will help), there are many other things you can do.
Here are some of the things I used to do when I was making a lot of money on Fiverr:
  • Article Writing
  • Photography
  • Video Marketing
  • Graphic Design
  • Proofreading
  • Translations
These combined used to give me and my then business partner a full time income of $3000 per month.
Yes we worked hard, but it was well worth it and I got the first taste of online income through this amazing experience.

So, How To Make Money On Fiverr: Time For You To Cash In!

Makign money on Fiverr is not hard at all and it is probably the easiest way to make money online (apart from affiliate marketing that is).
Below, I explain in a step-by-step manner what you need to do to get started with Fiverr.

Step 1: Create An Account

It is very easy (and free) to set up an account with Fiverr. Al you have to do is:
  1. Go to Fiverr.com
  2. Click “Join
  3. Fill out your details

Step 2: Decide What You’re Going To Offer

Now is the time where you need to pick at least 1 (the more, the better) of services you want to offer.
Now don’t panic; I am sure you have something to offer for $5. There is nothing too silly or too crazy for Fiverr.
If you want to do something, feel comfortable doing it and you’re somewhat good at it (you don’t have to be an expert, it’s $5), go for it.
Just take a look at the Fiverr.com marketplace and you will see what kind of services people offer on there.
I suggest you take a look at something that you can do:
  • Maybe article writing? Here’s a guide for that.
  • Graphic design? Canva is amazing to do this type of work.
  • Know 2 languages? Start offering translations.
  • How about transcribing? That’s the process of turning audio into text (easy).
Whatever you know how to do, do that. You can become an “expert” at it while doing it and you can then add “extras”.
“Extras” by the way, are additional items and services you can offer that compliments your original $5 offer.
Here is a perfect example of ‘extras” this seller on Fiverr has:

Step 3: Start Selling

Now you have to create your gig.
Just decide what you want to do, and go ahead and fill out the gig description.
Fiverr encourages you to add a video to your gigs but if you’re too shy to do that, you can hire somebody on Fiverr to do an animated version of you or something.
All this is a simple process, don’t stress it too much.
Check the “Buyer’s Request” page to see what customers are wanting to buy. This will give you a great opportunity to offer your services right there and then. This is useful to get the ball rolling and customer reviews coming in.
*Please note that you would need to have created a gig to access the “Buyer’s Request” page.

Step 4: Deliver A Great Service

This goes without saying but if you want to make money on Fiverr, you have to take care of your customers.
This not only provides great reviews for you but also keeps customers buying from you again and again.
A $5 sale can easily lead to a business relationship that will generate $100s in the future.
If you make delivering top quality service your focus, I am sure that you will be able to a significant amount of money on Fiverr, maybe enough to quit your job too.

Step 5: See What Works, Do More Of That

Once you get the hang of Fiverr and how the site and community works, feel free to add more and more gigs (offering more services).
You would be surprised as to how sometimes one gig fails and the other succeeds. You just have to keep trying and testing ideas till something hits and works.

Step 6: Cash In

$5 may not seem like a much but once you start getting into using “extras”, a gig can easily average $10-$20 each and if you sell 10 of those a day, you’re looking at $200 per day profit.
Don’t let the $5 limit put you off, if you do things right and you become the go-to-person on Fiverr, you are going to be making much, much more money.
One thing I would suggest you do is to treat it as a business. Meaning; don’t withdraw every $5 you make. Save it up in there and withdraw on a certain day of the month, it will be like a salary for you.
This is great to help you keep track of how your “business” is going.
