For most of us, Fiverr is a website where we could buy goods and services for cheap prices. For some others it is a place to make a few bucks online.
But for me, it is everything.Literally I mean… it is everything!
For the past month I’ve been making a full time living from Fiverr. So recently, I quit my day job and now I am living an internet lifestyle by being my own boss.
What is Fiverr
OK… For those who are living under a rock who still don’t get what Fiverr is, let me explain. Fiverr.com is a marketplace where people buy and sell small services for just $5.
In this article, I’ll take you behind the scenes of my Fiverr earnings and show you how I earn full time income being a part time Fiverr seller.
I hate screenshots since they can be faked easily! So watch the video below.
It all started 30 days ago…
There is a big myth…
Most of the people believe it is almost impossible to earn money online if you are just getting started.
We’ve also been taught that earning a full time income online is basically impossible if you don’t have a popular blog or massive social following.
Let me share my story. I started selling some gigs on Fiverr a month ago. Till now, I’ve not promoted my gigs from my blog or using social media and still I managed to earn 4-figure income with ease.
All I have done is by leveraging the potential of Fiverr Search which is what I call FSO (Fiverr Search Optimization)
3 Simple Steps I’ve Taken to Make $100 per day from Fiverr
As I said Fiverr has huge potential to make money. Even if you don’t have massive following still you could make awesome money.
Here are some few simple steps by which even a child can make at least 4-figure income from Fiverr…
Step 0: Identify your unique quality and sell on Fiverr.
Most of the bloggers get it wrong. They thought selling gigs on Fiverr is not for them as Fiverr pay them only $4 for their awesome creativity and time.
In fact, you don’t need to spend a lot of time for the services you provide on Fiverr.
Here is an example.
This seller is making $4 for every 10 seconds he spent in front of camera.
Step 1: Make your gigs awesome and standout
It is true that there are a lot of gigs listed on same category offered by different sellers around the world on Fiverr. So if you started selling something, your gig has to be awesome and standout from other gigs listed on Fiverr.
Let’s see how Fiverr search works and how a buyer buy your gig.
Imagine that your gig is new on a particular category.
As your gig is new, for some amount of time, Fiverr will give priority for your gig in search result. So whenever someone search related to your gig, chances are there that your gig will be shown among with the other higher reputed gigs for some amount of time.
In this period, if your gig performed well which means your gig got some quick positive feedback and collected by many, then automatically Fiverr continues to give priority for your gig on search result.
On the other hand, if your gig fail to perform well, automatically it will get dumped inside the search result.
So make your gig awesome by displaying a video or at least an awesome graphic that compel people to buy your gig.
Step 2: Start selling related gigs
Once you got busy by getting some orders for your gig, the next step to take is to offer more related gigs. I mentioned to sell related gigs because you can even promote your gig from your existing successful gig if you sell related gigs.
For example, if you sell graphic designs services on Fiverr, chances exist that your old customers will be interested to buy your new related gig so that promoting new gig will be much easier.
Step 3: Aim on positive feedback and higher levels
On Fiverr, money lies on higher levels. Even if your sales won’t increase you could earn more money if you are on higher level.
In fact, almost 50% of my income is by selling extra gigs.
Each levels open new opportunities, benefits and tools that will help a seller generate higher income.
Level 0: You’re total newbie seller. You could sell gig only for $5.
Level 1: You’re active for a month and made at least 10 sales with awesome ratings. Now you can sell multiple gigs at a time (maximum of 4) and you can sell 3 extra gigs even for $20 each.
Level 2: You made 50 orders in past 2 months with excellent ratings. Now you can sell up to 8 multiple gigs at a time and sell 4 extra gigs even for $40 each.
Top Rated Seller: Unlike other levels on Fiverr, this level has been given to the seller by Fiverr editors manually. You could sell an extra gig even for $100 if you are a top rated seller.
Not every gig created will break sales record. It is quite normal that some of your gig may fail to get much exposure and even a single sale.
But try creating various gigs. If you fail to make any sale in the first week, remove that gig and list a new one.
Be ruthless to non-performing gigs.
My strategy is to always stay out of trouble and follow the rules. If your aim is to get a big sale outside Fiverr, note that according to FiverrToS, sellers should not communicate with the buyer outside Fiverr and shouldn’t make sale outside Fiverr.
They are so strict with their rules so obey it and have some fun!
