How much should one expect to earn full time from Fiverr?

25 replies
I'm with Fiverr and earning $200-$900 per month from it but that's it. I'm looking to earn at least $2000/month on a constant basis with kind of work where master skills are not required but haven't found such a service yet.

Just for information that I'm not a Logo Designer nor an SEO expert so those two highly selling fields are out of my scope.

Is anyone around here who's making around or more than $2000/month from Fiverr who are not Graphic Designer or SEO expert?

Also, any suggestion on a service that I can sell on Fiverr for minimum $50?(and I'm not a web designer either!!!).

    If you really want to make that much why are you using Fiverr? you're far better off having your own website and provide the same service(s).

    since you already have a clientelle you should leverage them by giving them incentives to come back for more orders.

    Survey your clients every time you deliver your gig and ask questions that will help you come up with a gig that your current buyers also want.

    Have your buyers create a video testimonial for a discount on their next order...

    Leverage other Fiverr sellers who offer gigs that go hand in hand with what you're selling...

    There is a lot more you can do but this should suffice to get to your goal.

    There are so many people on fiverr who offer the same types of services. There are two things you can do:

    1- Learn how to 'stand out' from everyone else over there.

    2- Look for other platforms similar to fiverr and offer your services over there.

    You should look into building your own site, showcasing your work, and various services offered. I'm not an expert in certain aspects of web design/development, however, that doesn't stop me from taking on large deals. I have a team of designers/developers with diverse skill sets, and I handle project management.

    Limited income via Fiverr, unless you've got several+ active gigs running. I charge my clients rates ranging from $2500 for a small business site, and as high as $20-$30k for a custom Drupal site with several integrations, etc. I'd rather deal with a few higher paying clients, then 100s of low paying clients.

      Then the question is where do you get your clients from? Or how do you get them?

    If you're good at something with which you are earning an income from Fiverr, you can easily scale it up by providing your service outside Fiverr. Another way is to provide upsells on Fiverr itself by which your average earnings go up per customer.

    Try to build an audience of your customers, a list.

    Use Socials, blogs and backlinkins to get ranked in google more.

    Also try to get ranked on Bing which is easier.

    You're probably best to sort out your service rather than fish for a service that provides the most income.

    On freelance sites, the hourly rate is determined on a. what skill you are offering and b. your hourly rate based on ranking, experience and also your feedback.

    Since starting out I offer my marketing services on freelancer sites and some weeks I might make $1500 for huge projects that basically take up a good chunk of my week and other weeks it might only be $100 or even less.

    It's freelance, so it is not really a pipeline and you only get out what you put in compared to the others bidding for the job.

    My suggestion is to find something you are REALLY good at, make a portfolio, do some projects without worrying too much about the rate and then get a profile on these sites - if you do an awesome job and find a few regular people to do work for you can get fairly consistent income however the whole purpose of Fiverr and freelance sites is services on demand, not ongoing regular work necessarily.

    I would set up a few revenue streams and have something else going on during the times that Fiverr is slow, there are times when I have been inundated with work offers on those sites and other times when I am a little stumped where the work is at.

    Good luck

      This is something I'm thinking a lot these days. But what I'm providing at the moment (picture quotes with client's logo and url) is not something that I can put the price higher. And I'm like stuck to find what other service can I offer for which I can set higher price, say at least $50 per job!!

    We stopped working on Fiverr. There are a lot of people making decent money but i personally don't think that Fiverr is the right place to build a long term business.

    That's a good amount of money on Fiverr! Maybe try to use Fiverr as a kind of funnel to get long-term clients instead of once offs.

      Service that I sell is Picture Quotes on different categories. I offer to put Client's logo and url on them. Now this is something that most of the clients buy once as they've one website or a facebook page. Any idea of such a service where a client may need to come to me again and again?

        If you want to scale things up, then you don't necessarily have to sell a more expensive service?

        Possibly it's just a matter of reaching out to more people? How about if you register on similar platforms like Fiverr and offer your service there?

    You can earn as much as you want on freelance sites if you're on there enough and bidding for work.

    I sometimes go on them when work is a little light on and I can make a couple of thousand a week if needed or as little as I want, it all is based on effort you put in and how much you work on bidding on projects.

    I you have a service that is in demand and you find simple to do then you can create a few offers at say $20 or $50 and you can easily get enough work that way.

    I would also make sure you get some feedback and testimonials and ensure your profile has plenty of info on it for people to check when they are making their decision on who to choose.

    Freelancing sites are great for getting new leads and a great income stream.

    Irrespective of the freelance service you offer, it inevitably has to be something you're good at.

    You're already making money from Fiverr offering a service. See if you can expand on that.

    Freelancers on Fiverr can now charge higher rates - offering premium services. Once your buyers are happy and you've earned the buyer’s trust, they’ll likely buy more—potentially at a higher cost.

    You need your own website. Use Fiverr to gain clients and push them to re-order through your own site with upsells.

      Pushing clients from Fiverr to own website is against their TOS and hence can not do that. But I have done just the reverse of it. I have created a website recently and listed all different categories' picture quotes I sell and "ORDER NOW" link goes to my Fiverr page. So now I have been focusing on sending traffic to my website.

      What do you think about this?

        Not a terrible idea, but if you are driving people to this website anyway, why not sell directly from it? How are you driving traffic to your own website? is this increasing the costs? Is the increase in jobs paying for any marketing spend?

    I know Fiverr and earning $900 with a picture quote gig is pretty impressive.

    Anyway, the first thing you need to do is work out how many gigs you need
    to sell a day to reach your income goal...then you need to figure out if
    it's possible to sell that many gigs everyday.

    If you think it's impossible give up now...otherwise keep going.

    What I think you should also do is offer a package gig where you setup
    their Pinterest / Instagram and then load x amount of pictures quotes
    onto it.

    Imagine you're a site owner and someone offers that to you for $50

    Does it sound like something you'd buy while cruising Fiverr at 3 in the
    morning?

    Maybe...

    People who sell video testimonials do very well.

    Use fiverr to build clients and generate testimonials and use that to launch your own website while maintaining both.

    Leverage the free traffic on fiverr and charge more on your website after you get the client to work with you and they see the quality you provide.

      But if they know that it is cheaper on Fiverr, why would they suddenly pay more for the same thing? What is to stop them just ordering through Fiverr again?
