Fiverr is a great platform where you really can earn money.
You can do so by selling you services worldwide if you have a specific skill in one or more of the following general categories:
Graphic & Design
Writing & Translation
Music & Video
Programming & Tech
Fun & Lifestyle
If you are a creative person, there is no better place on the internet than Fiverr to offer any service you wish in over 100 categories as long as it is legal and complies with their terms.
How much money can you make in Fiverr? It's totally up to you. You can work as much as you want. Many sellers work on Fiverr full time and some keep their 9-5 job while using Fiverr to make extra money.
To join is free, but Fiverr keeps 20% while you get 80% of each transaction. With Gig Packages, you set your pricing anywhere from $5 - $995 and offer three versions of your service at three different prices.
The beauty of offering your services through Fiverr is that the time you need to invest is flexible as you can set your own, except at the beginning where you need some time to learn the markeplace.
Another great feature is that as soon as you deliver your work and it gets approved by your customer, the money is yours, this because the customer pays in advance! You don't need to chase clients or wait 30 or 60 days for a check in the post...
What needs to be done to sell your services on Fiverr and stand out from your competitors is basically the following:
Have a catchy picture and a nice video to highlight your gig. This is very important because people like to know with whom they are dealing with.
Take care about the title of your gig. It’s important to highlight a keyword in your title so you can draw user’s attention to the purpose of your service.
Try different categories. What might seem to be the best fitting at first, doesn’t always drive the most traffic. Try to avoid the “other” category if possible.
Do whatever you can to rank in the highest possible ratings for service, as Fiverr has various levels of it.
Have a nice description of yourself and what you can do for your client in a professional manner.Share your gigs on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, etc. by sharing your stories to raise awareness.
Last but not least, if you get so many orders and cannot cope doing them by yourself, you can even sub-contract to someone else on the same platform (obviously without anyone knowing about it except you).
Example, you can sell a gig for $10 on your seller's page, and then immediately pass the same order on to someone else who can do it for $5 - You would therefore keep the difference (after paying 20% to Fiverr) for barely doing nothing. Of course you need to have verified your sub-contractor before you do that, through placing a couple of orders to check them out.
The opportunities on Fiverr are endless for both sellers and buyers as we all need the sevices of other people to develop our business, and this is a platform that no one can really miss, whether you have an online or offline business.
