Sincerely speaking, I wrote my first Fiverr ebook because I saw earning potential in sharing my knowledge and formula to others so they can make money on Fiverr. Click here to learn more about the ebook. But also, sharing this formula with you does not hurt my future Fiverr earnings.
Fiverr, at the time this book was written, is the 465th most visited website in the world and the 442th in the United States. Fiverr is only poised to grow even larger and has been growing at an exponential rate over the past 2 years. Sharing this knowledge with you won’t saturate the Fiverr market but will only help you to know more about how to make money on Fiverr. So picking up this e-book a few months later, after many people have already read and copied my formula, won’t hurt you since there’s room for everyone. Not to mention, even if you don’t sell the gigs I recommend selling, I still offer solid tips and advice to optimize your sales no matter what you decide to sell on Fiverr.
If you want to get the best out of this blog, I highly suggest you follow along as you read. I try to include screenshots when I can, but it’s easier to absorb the information when you read and do it at the same time.
Also, while it’s tempting to skip posts on this blog, I strongly suggest reading the blog from beginning to end and in order of posting. I will often refer to tips from previous posts. Also, it’s important to not miss any information. There are a lot of little things or little details on this blog. Every single one of them, when implemented in entirety, will really help you be successful, that is, it will teach you how to make money on Fiverr very quickly!
Fiverr isn’t a site like eBay, Craigslist, Kijiji, or anything else. Yeah, I know it’s a $5 marketplace and that is Fiverr’s gimmick. But let me get into a theory of mine really quickly. I think Fiverr has invented a new kind of website and marketplace. I think it’s a trend that will really grow and we will start to see many more sites like this, perhaps even see a site like Kijiji go this way.
Fiverr is what I like to call a social marketplace. It’s more personal and community-like than say a site like Kijiji. People put their faces on their gigs. Their brand is themselves. Why’s this important or why should you care? Well, I dive into this a bit but if you treat Fiverr like just a marketplace you may not fulfill your true earning potential. You can’t be faceless on Fiverr; you need a little bit of personality. This is not going to make or break your success on Fiverr but Fiverr does have its’ own unique style and culture. It is just something important to consider.
If you don’t already have a Fiverr account, go ahead and make one now before continuing on through this blog. You will also need a PayPal account to withdraw your money that you’ve earned through Fiverr. To create a new account, go to Fiverr.com and click on “Join” in the upper-right hand corner.
Here, you can join with Facebook if you wish but I’d rather you make an account from scratch. When choosing a username, it is helpful to pick a relevant username. For example, if you will be doing SEO and backlink gigs, something like “SEO_Guy” or “SEOking” would both be good choices.
It’s important to do this since you are branding yourself. Fiverr users see your username and they will recognize you are specializing in that type of gig. This will also encourage users to click on your profile to view other gigs you offer since they will assume you only offer gigs of this type. After registering, confirm your email by clicking the link in the email Fiverr will send you to the email you signed up with. This is an important step in your way to learn how to make money on Fiverr.
Account Set Up
Profile Photo: If you are confident having your face on the internet, I highly recommend you upload a picture of yourself as a profile photo. Fiverr is a very social marketplace. You will see many people sit in front of a camera and describe their gig. If you upload a picture of yourself in your profile, you will seem more trusting and you will get more orders because of this.
If you do not want to use a photo of yourself, you can also decide to upload a picture of an attractive girl. Why? I will get into this in detail later, but women seem to get more sales on Fiverr than men. An attractive girl in your profile will also attract more clicks to your profile, thus allowing more people to see all the gigs you offer. Trust me on this. I have experimented with male profiles versus female profiles from different Fiverr accounts. The female accountsalways have more sales.
Something About You: This section is pretty important. It appears in the right sidebar of every one of your gig’s pages as well as on your profile. Here you should describe yourself briefly and give some background on your expertise. At the end of your bio I highly recommend a call to action. “Check out my other gigs on my profile for more SEO for only $5!” would be a good call to action at the bottom of your bio. This is important because on every page of your gigs, Fiverr users will see this call to action and encourage them to see your other gigs when most of them wouldn’t have otherwise.
Fiverr Level 1
If you haven’t made your Fiverr account already it’s really important you do right now. This is because Fiverr has seller levels which partly depend on the age of your account. I will go into further detail explaining what these levels are, what they do and why they’re important.
Seller levels are important since they place a badge or icon next to your name which gives you credibility to other users. Besides that, seller levels open up new options for you as a seller.
