How to Make Money on Fiverr
Who doesn’t love the idea of getting compensated for providing services that they have a natural knack for?
While freelance platforms have been prevalent for quite some time now, Fiverr has put whole new spin on getting paid for doing what you love.
Fiverr’s interactive marketplace allows members to sell their creative or mainstream services for $5 each. While $5 doesn’t seem like enough to peak the interest of most, the earning potential on Fiverr is much more in depth than many people assume.
Whether you are skilled in one particular area, or you’re a Jack-of-all-trades, Fiverr lets you create one gig, or even several, that are relevant to your individual interests. Fiverr is designed to not only allow users to capitalize on their everyday talents, but to provide an easy-to-use layout with a quick and easy transaction process to boot.
Now let’s focus on how to make money on Fiverr in the most effective way possible.
Fiverr offers a user-friendly platform for creating and publishing gigs in an approachable format. However, before you start the overall gig creation process, it is wise to overlook the various categories to choose from, in order to asses which field will be the most profitable and suitable for you.
Fiverr offers over 120 categories to choose from, so users are able to easily find a category that is relevant to their services.
Fiverr offers many common categories such as writing and business services, as well as a section labeled as, “Fun & Bizarre” where sellers can offer quirky and unique services. Whatever area you excel in, you are sure to find a category that corresponds to the service you choose to offer.Shoot, I once paid a guy $25.00 to juggle chain saws while talking about one of my websites. (Though, that site ultimately was not profitable so i dropped it)
I bet you thought i was kidding right? Nope 🙂
Anyways, once you’ve decided on what service you would like to offer, you can head over to the, “Create a Gig” page. If this is your first listing, then you will only be allowed 1 gig until you reach 10 successful transactions.
It is also recommended that you start off by buying services from someone else, so that you can create a solid foundation of feedback before you offer your service in the marketplace. A reputable user rating and attention-grabbing gig page are what will essentially draw most buyers into purchasing services from you.
How to Make your Fiverr Gig Stand out
To make sure that you attract as much traffic and sales as possible, it is a good idea to utilize Fiverr’s media attachment tools, as well as integrating keywords into your title. Fiverr allows sellers to upload cover photos, videos, as well as a main photo surrounding the specific service that they are offering.
The more media that you include in your gig’s presentation, the more informed and intrigued buyers will become, resulting in optimal profits. It is also beneficial to use relative keywords in the title of your gig, so that buyers who are looking for your particular service will be able to easily spot it while browsing the related category, or discover it through Fiverr’s search feature.
Fiverr also has a section where sellers can add tags to their gig page, which can also consist of keywords that will draw in more genuine traffic. Taking advantage of all of these features will lead to adequate traffic levels, thus leading to more sales, which means more money in your pocket!
Many do not give Fiverr a sincere chance due to them assuming that $5 is rather poor money for most freelancing services. However, there are a couple ways in which users can maximize their sales and generate a much higher level of income.
Sellers can offer something called, “Gig Extras” where they can list additional services for specific amounts at the top of the gig page. The option of gig extras correlates to Fiverr’s level system as well, so the higher you climb up the Fiverr ladder, the more gig extras you are allowed to list. This is how most sellers escalate their profits, resulting in quite a hefty salary.
Another way to generate more funds on Fiverr, is by incorporating affiliate marketing into your terms of service. By saying you’ll provide a service if the buyer signs up as a referral under your name on an alternative company website or program, you will be able to generate income in more than one place at once.
SEO experts also recommended utilizing backlinking when it comes to professional government and educational websites, which usually results in a higher page ranking. The higher your page is ranked, the more traffic your gig will receive, which will also help you reach optimal sale levels.
Fiverr is the perfect marketplace whether you are looking for some side money, or even some serious cash. As long as you utilize the techniques previously mentioned, you are sure to climb up Fiverr’s level system in no time, and start earning some serious cash flow!
