What is this all about? I see a lot of people struggling to make anything online. Making pennies a day with Google Adsense and ending the month with $10 to show for all their online efforts. This is no fun, and can quickly lead to giving up. To boost your confidence and get some income coming in you should look at Fiverr. Thats what this post is all about. Finding simple tasks that you can do to make some extra income and get your online business off the ground.
What is Fiverr
Fiverr is essentially a micro job site. I like to think of it as a many freelancing website. It is a marketplace to buy and post micro jobs. Micro jobs are jobs or tasks that you can complete in a reasonable amount of time as a service. These jobs are referred to as “gigs”. Fiverr is a place that you can post a simple job or task you can complete to save someone else time. This is a great opportunity for you to make money and help someone else with a task they need done. Fiverr is a great place to use your talents and make some cash and it provides a great source of potential clients.
The question that comes up a lot is do people make money on fiverr?
Sure they do. Are people getting rich on Fiverr? Not many, but the opportunity to make money is certainly there. The key to making money on Fiverr is offering tasks that you can automate, systemize, and perform quickly. Without these things you will not be making a fair hourly amount. You don’t want to get paid $5 for something that takes you an hour to complete. Find jobs or assets that you have and that you can provide quality work for in a small amount of time.
What skills, tools, or assets do you have to offer?
First look at what skills, tools, or assets that you can utilize and knock out the easy ones first. If you have some valuable tools that are pricey people will often pay you to use them for them. For example: If you have a keyword research tool that ranks keywords based on competition. Someone might pay you five dollars to research their keywords for them. This is something you can perform quickly using software that you own. People are willing to pay for this because paying you $5 is much cheaper than buying a software package that costs $200 or more.
Do some research. What are those successful on Fiver doing in your niche? Do you have some of the same skills, tools, or assets that successful Fiverr gig providers have? If so, you can create a similar service with a personal touch. Make yours better, or offer a shorter completion time. This will make your service more appealing and give you a greater chance to acquire more gigs.
Be creative, you can make gigs for anything you want. Trying writing for people, making videos, sharing their content, etc. Think outside the box and don’t limit what you can do.
How to stand out on Fiverr
Setting up gigs and waiting for the cash to pour in is certainly not the way to make it on Fiverr. You have to market your gigs well, drive traffic to them, and most importantly make them stand out. If you are just starting out it can be a little overwhelming at first. the most important thing is to make your gigs professional so when you do get clients, you get good reviews, and that leads to more clients. The tips below should get you on your way and make your gigs stand out.
One of the first steps you need to take to stand out on Fiverr is to create an appealing image that draws attention to your gig. If you can get people to look at your image you will most likely get them to check out your enticing title. Think about the audience of your niche. What would they find visually appealing? What would draw your attention in if you were looking for a similar service. Making it on Fiverr is all about grabbing people’s attention and getting them to purchase your services.
If you want to stand out on Fiverr there are some things you must take care of. First of all, you must make great titles for your gigs. Just like with blogging or sales copy, your title has to entice the the potential buyer into clicking it. You could have the best gig on Fiverr but if no one is clicking your link you will never sell it to anyone.
Once you have enticed the buyer into clicking on your Gig you need to have great ad copy. The first step is enticing, the second step is captivating them. Good sales copy will keep them on your gig so that they can see what you offer and ultimately lead them to purchase your services.
So no you have them looking at your gig. What are you offering that is unique from your competition. Can you deliver the work faster than your competitors? Do you provide better quality work? For long term success provide high quality services and always over deliver. This will lead to happy customers and, good reviews, feedback, and testimonials.
When doing freelance gigs there is nothing better than happy clients. Happy clients equals good reviews which equals more clients which equals more money for you. Pamper your clients, go the extra mile and ensure they are happy. Respond to any questions they may have promptly and make any changes they request. This will involve more work on your part but in the end will lead to more business. Also, good reviews will help you stay at the top of the list on Fiverr. Being at the top of the list is a great way to grow your clientele.
Reviews are such an important part of success on Fiverr. You have to keep a good reputation and avoid negative reviews. Treat every single customer professionally and ensure they are happy with the gig, even if it involves extra work.
Another way to get gigs on Fiverr is showing work that you have done in the past. If you provide really high-quality work show potential clients that. I’m often on Fiverr looking for graphic design work. Nothing entices me more to work with a graphic designer than when they have displayed their prior work that looks professional and high-quality.
Another important thing to keep in mind is that not everyone will be inclined to leave feedback even if you provide great work. Be sure to thank your clients and politely asked them to leave feedback. This might encourage them to do so and thats gonna add to more positive reviews for you and your service.
The last thing that you have to make sure of when promoting a gig is that the customer knows what to expect. Make sure it is clear what you are offering so there a not misunderstandings. If you are offering writing services, make for sure they know exactly what they are going to get (word count, etc.)
