$200 A DAY ON FIVERR?...Let's get real, put up or shut up...

130 replies
I've been studying Fiverr and all it's clones for weeks now, I've actually got accounts at fiverr and 16 of the clone sites that have jumped on the fiverr craze.

I've bought all the WSO's on fiverr I could find and studied them and applied their principles, some are good and some are crap like any other WSO but the earnings claims are unrealistic.

Fiverr and it's many copy sites are a great place for new people to get their feet wet and start selling their services without the need for a website or affiliate system or whatever, but the WSO's I've seen are not realistic and promise the moon...

Here's my challenge, If anyone who's posted a WSO on fiverr can show me a screenshot...where they've made $200 in one day...I'll give you the total of the $121 dollars I've made from fiverr and all these other sites in ten days and promote or JV the hell out of your offer...

Fiverr is like anything else, it's a fad, it's an ideal platform for new people to provide services and hone their skills, with the addition of all the other clone sites it can be a good income for freeelancers and especialy article writers...

But lets be realistic and explain it to them as a long term thing that requires some effort, just like everything worthwhile in internet marketing.

YES, I'm working on a report about this, was thinking about a WSO, but with all the crap circulating about fiverr the best I could come up with was this challenge...

Show me your 'Revenues' page where you made $200 in one day...and you get my total earnings from 16 fiverr clone sites as soon as they clear ( Some clear instantly and some, like fiverr, take 14 days)

Anybody?

    Have I made $200 a day using fiverr?
    No.

    Is it possible?
    Maybe (I haven't done it so I can't say)

    Will someone create a fake screenshot and post it on the thread?
    I think yes but let's see

    EDIT: Ok that was a joke so don't get defensive now

    If you have twitter accounts with 20.000 followers of 4-5 face book accounts with 15-20.000 friends sure you can make that much for promoting stuff to your followers. This kind of providers always have 10 or more orders queued up every day. I can see therm making that much money. If you have things you can leverage, you can get a lot of orders. Offer to do email blast to your list of 10.000 and see how much you make!

    What sort of Facebook friends or Twitter followers do you have to have to have them endure your constantly spamming them with fiverr orders?

    First off, I'd like to know what they did to get 20,000 followers when facebook has a limit, and then what's the value of that? They put a post on their wall or their page?

    Yes, there are successful gigs that get a lot of hits each day, promising a lot of friends or a lot of tweets...but look at the feedback, it's like a WSO, yes he did this but too early to gage results...

      There are fiverr clone sites where you can name your price...I've actually made some good $$ by posting a successful $4 fiverr gig at a clone site and getting $9 for the same task.

      One of my customers at fiverr ordered 6 of the same gig, we're building a 'relationship'...

      I don't have time to promote Fiverr at all right now. But I have made in excess of $150 in a day. However, all of the money that I did make did not go through Fiverr.

      I format books for the Kindle. I offered a basic service. When I sold my formatting I let the customer know what other services I offer. As I formatted the book I made recommendations that they could do themselves or I would do for a fee.

      I almost always sold at least $10-$20 more, and was paid through Paypal. Fiverr wasn't consistent for me though. I would go two or three days without anything, and then two or three days where I spent too much time with Fiverr.

        I did about $60 in one day on Fiverr, but, the execution of the Fiverr was a bit complicated, and far from the norm of anything else I've seen there. It just took to much work and effort to sustain, so I folded the idea and suspended the fiverr.

        I think $200/day is certainly possible, but it would definitely take some work and skill.

          Seems to me something as "simple" as Fiverr shouldn't be complicated... $60 isn't too bad, but it's not going to break the bank - especially not if it took you all day! I've considered it from time to time for teeny jobs, but I figured it wasn't worth the time or effort.

      You bring up a very valid point here. If they keep blasting their friends and followers like that non-stop, it's only a matter of time before they either stop becoming friends/followers, or they start developing a blindness to their Tweets, DMs and messages, essentially ignoring all the sales messages that are being incessantly hurled at them.

      Many people tend to forget that it's not the size of your lists/followers/friends that truly counts, it's their responsiveness!

    YES, fiverr is experimental and so are the gigs you offer, they need to be something that you can do fast. At $4/gig it needs to be something you can push a button and walk away.

      Think about it.

      If YOU had a service you offered ppl where they happily paid
      $5 over, and over, again...would it be a good business decision
      to share THAT secret with someone for $10 or $20 bucks (WSO
      standard price)?

      If you had an automatic system where all you had to do was
      push a button while collecting $5 bills, would you sell that knowing
      how "quickly" exposure of the technique will make your method
      obsolete...considering that Fiverr IS a fad like most online marketing
      methods?

      Of course not, b/c you would make MORE money over the long
      term sticking with the method that works for you than you would
      selling it off for a quick buck only to see it "washed out" by ppl
      copying you also trying to make a quick buck...possibly ruining
      it for yourself and others.

        of them seemed to have a clue.

        I totally agree with this.

        I myself have been using fiverr for about a month now and all though I have only made roughly $350, I can say that the time I spent doing the actions took very minimal time. Sharing a technique like that wouldn't be worth it to me or anyone else as others would simple replicate it and end up ruining everything setup on fiverr.

        Now I can say one thing... fiverr will allow you to have more than 1 account, atleast for now. So it is doable to bring in $200 a day if you really wanted to do that. But that would involve 50 sales per day. Which I can totally see doable if you were to take fiverr to that level. It's just not my thing. I like offering high quality information to people.

        In the end, I solely use fiverr to pay for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and it does a really nice job of doing that Bringing in 5 sales a day on average whereas you spend only 15 minutes isn't too bad of an ordeal

        Sincerely,
        Justin Lewis

        UPDATE: Remember fiverr is still new to the industry, allow it to progress and other clones to come out and you will probably easily pull in $200 a day. Heck my girlfriend made $60 the other day using a website called gigbucks.

Who cares about the $20 bucks... you saved me from the heartbreak of buying yet another WSO offering hope but falling short on realistic earnings potential. Thank you for encouraging us 'would-be-fiverrs' to wait for a Photoshopped earnings report before taking the financial plunge. In the meantime, I'll let my current gigs ride; I'm currently making almost $4 a day. (Obviously, I have other projects besides this one!)

      Not with my experience from it. I only had one gig run smoothly out of 6. four did not produce quality results, one never responded until I got the refund. Only one was actually timely. I couldn't offer services like that to my customers.

      Hi,

      This is one of those daft ideas where you can't really say that it's not possible

      There are 24 hours in a day, so you could throw an all-nighter and all-dayer and just about do it assuming you are doing something that takes less than 36 minutes per gig and you don't need inconvenient things like food and bathroom breaks.

      But is anyone going to be able to take this offer of free cash up?

      Heck no...no-one is really going to be that crazy (are they?)...

        I use FiveRR but as a buyer only. After reading this thread you got me thinking.

        The only way is to upsell them after the $5 gig. Completing 50 tasks a day is inhuman.

        I really can't stand when people say something isnt possible, simply because they are not capable of doing it or cannot figure out how to get it done.

        I have made more than $200 a day from fiverr on numberous occasions. The key is that not all of the transactions need to actually go through fiverr.

        I began by playing around offering a 300 word generic article for $5. Impressed 5 or so clients within an hour, and then dealt with them via email from there on in. One day I had 3 clients order 20 300 word articles each, and I was able to hammer them all out during the day. The next day two seperate clients from fiverr ordered 20 each.

        That's 100 articles at $5 a pop (after the initial few that I did through fiverr in order to get new clients and positive feedback) in two days. It isnt fun, it isnt glamorous but it sure as heck is possible.

        These are of course just generic, seo, search fodder, keyword stuffed articles and not high quality, well thought out, sales copy or anything like that.

        But its fun to do every now and then when my paypal account needs a kick in the pants, or I want to buy a new toy.

        Possible to make $200 through fiverr in a day, absolutely. And there are also TONS of merchants that have ebooks, offer uncustomized products and so on.

        Offer an ebook that is intriguing to a large market, and make sure it is of decent quality for $5....and you would have no problem doing 50 transactions a day.

        Come on guys....Im not saying everyone here that has created a fiverr product is tellign the whole truth, or has cracked the code. Heck sometimes there isnt even a code...its just about working hard.

        But dont call out the whole site, everyone on it, and all of the techniques used just because YOU can't make it happen.

              Harsh words I know, but I don't think warriors who only have success selling a few WSOs (which is easy) are qualified to be putting off newbies when other warriors, who DO make money elsewhere are providing helpful advice on how to make stuff work. Or at least try to.

              But, it's clear that you need a little professional help to be able to understand what you read and get rid of your own delusions...


              Who told you that I am selling WSOs?

              I have only one thread that I use to sell my site building services...

              Where did you see these "few" WSOs?

              And how did you know that I dont make money outside the WF?

              Made your check?

              That gives an image of what type of advice being given here...

            He did, in his post, include information about the type and quality of those articles - and I commend him for being honest in that regard as well. I'm sure he wouldn't be writing 50 high-quality articles at the same rate.

          I began by playing around offering a 300 word generic article for $5. Impressed 5 or so clients within an hour, and then dealt with them via email from there on in.

          These are of course just generic, seo, search fodder, keyword stuffed articles and not high quality, well thought out, sales copy or anything like that.

          But its fun to do every now and then when my paypal account needs a kick in the pants, or I want to buy a new toy.

          Possible to make $200 through fiverr in a day, absolutely. And there are also TONS of merchants that have ebooks, offer uncustomized products and so on.

          Offer an ebook that is intriguing to a large market, and make sure it is of decent quality for $5....and you would have no problem doing 50 transactions a day.

      Sure its possible...not with just one Fiverr account though. You need to set up at least 15 Fiverr accounts and sell at least 10 gigs in each. You have to think outside the box with Fiverr.

        That's making it overly complicated. I have only one fiverr account, and in the last 10 days I've made over $1500, and I expect to tack on another $4K within a week. - But you do have to think way outside of the box that's being presented in this thread.

      I believe about $1 goes to Fiverr in commission, so you are left with $4 per sale.

      Is 50 sales per day realistic?

      I would say yes it is, given the huge amount of traffic the site gets.

      Even if you are only getting 10-25 sales per day, I assume the rest could be made on the back-end sales.

      I think the biggest problem is creating the right type of offer that converts, and understanding which sellers are making most of the sales.

      And then doing what they are doing.

      From my observations of the feedback at least, it seems to be the cute girls who are willing to hold signs up with their photo who are making the most money on Fiverr on the front-end.

      So if you wanted to replicate these successful sellers, either you need to be a cute girl yourself (willing to do it), or get cute girl(s) to do it and split the profits with them.

      Probably wouldn't be difficult to persuade 8-12 cute girls from college or universities to do it, and pay them 15-30% of the revenue.

      I personally wouldn't do it as I have 3 younger sisters and I have a lot of respect for girls, just saying how it could be done if you don't have a problem with it and want to model the success on there.

      Regardless of the rights and wrongs of it, cute girls get a lot of attention whether it is Youtube, Facebook or Fiverr.

      The numbers don't lie.

      Even on here there are one or two cute girls who get quite a bit of attention...

      Your thoughts are reasonable, however, you're missing an essential fact...

      Fiverr is not a selling platform!!!

      it is a "Five" rr site, i.e., a platform for those who are willing to offer a kind of "service" in change for the 5 bucks...

      So, as mentioned here, to make 200 bucks, you need to do some work for 50 different people, if you're taking just 15 minutes to complete one task (almost impossible as you take more than that to contact the buyer, discuss his/her needs, upload things...etc, but let's just assume that)...you need more than 12 hours to complete all the work...

      Who can do this?

      Even those who try to sell ripped off link packages or pirated ebooks, can't handle 50 orders in one day (orders are processed manually on Fiverr)...so the $200/day can't be true under any conditions...

          Writing a sign and taking a photo takes no longer than 60 seconds, you can do 50 of them in an hour with a bit of urgency.

          A simple webpage could be set up with a submission form for buyer requirements, easy.

          I could have put what I wrote into a glossy PDF and sold it as a WSO for $20, and I would have had 100% positive feedback.

          And anyone following what I laid out would make money

          In fact some naughty WSO sellers are probably taking what I wrote, and turning into a WSO right now lol...
          No..you didn't mention pirated ebooks or link packages...I used them as examples for what getting sold right now on Fiverr.


          And those who are selling photos or doing signs are not getting 50 orders per day business...the only stuff that is able to bring that volume are money making related services, seo/traffic/graphics...etc services....or (as I mentioned) an ebook that's either pirated (seller doesn't mind selling it for $5 because it's simply not his own) or crappy like hell that the seller knows it will never sell anywhere else...

          My point is....what can bring 50 or more orders on Fiverr are LEGIT services, and those services (from human capabilities prespective) cannot be handled at a 50 per day level by a single person, unless a cheap seo or graphics company with a big team is so clueless and dump to offer their quality services on Fiverr for $5 and fail to launch them somewhere else for better rates...

          You can make $10000 in one day launching a successful WSO, not to mention a well planned product launch, but I insist it's impossible to do $200 (or even close to this) a day on Fiverr...

          My 2 cents...

          EDIT: Some people will argue that fiverr can be a good place to offer small reports and build lists, and I say a LOUD NO....it's much better to offer your report for free on a good squeeze page and promote it via proper channels (free WSO, ppc...etc).... offering your report for free through proper channels will introduce you as a generous professional, offering it for $5 on fiverr will introduce you as a desperate marketer who failed to do better with his product...

            Oh boy... ever hear the term over deliver? If you give someone something for $5 that they feel they got very good value for when you send them other more expensive suggestions on followup... you'll very likely get a decent response rate to your other offers.

      Let's think outside the box for a moment: Instead of paying $5 every time you want a cute girl holding up a sign that says: "I love X-Lax" why don't you just buy stock photos of cute girls holding up signs (with any message) on veer.com or istockphoto.com and then simply Photoshop your message on the sign. Better yet, PM me and I'll do it for you... for 5 bucks, of course (You have to re-use your stock photos over and over obviously).

    Guys

    "fiverr is nothing special"
    "$200 a day is not possible"
    "show me a screenshot"

    Hmm.. Let's go over these three points that were annoyingly made. First of all when you say fiverr is nothing special, it really isn't. It's another way to generate leads just like any other way.

    Secondly, when you say $200 a day is not possible, and that you want screenshots. Think about it again, $200 may not come from the $5 gigs, it may come from something outside of the gigs in relation to fiverr.. Should I explain...?

    Most Fiverr sellers do things for $5 that they would normally charge a lot more for. I know people who sell things for $50+ that are just $5 on Fiverr. Of course, they do not work as hard on them.. but you catch my drift.. So why would people offer "The goods" for so cheap?

    It's simple really... After you enjoy someone's service.. Your going to come back again... And after when they say, "hey, if you want to get more/upgrade your services, visit my site...", and you've enjoyed there work.. You can bet that your going to go buy there stuff.

    Consider each person who purchases from you a "lead"... $200 a day is possible from those leads... Not from fiverr directly maybe, but from the leads it generates.

      YES, I'm working on a report about this, was thinking about a WSO, but with all the crap circulating about fiverr the best I could come up with was this challenge...
      I'm going to ask the obvious question. If you earned $121 in 10 days from Fiver (or from 16 Fiver clone sites) - why would you write a WSO about it?

      It's simple really... After you enjoy someone's service.. Your going to come back again... And after when they say, "hey, if you want to get more/upgrade your services, visit my site...", and you've enjoyed there work.. You can bet that your going to go buy there stuff.
      Yes, it sounds simple and if you have a unique service it can work. However, sites like Fiver are designed for "cheap" buying and selling. It's just as likely that the buyer will return to Fiver and find another person offering the same service for $5.

      I've found it's better to set your own pricing and target a market that finds that pricing reasonable than to underprice and attract a group of cheap buyers. It takes longer and more effort in the beginning - but it pays off in the end.

      Buyers at the higher end of the price scale are often loyal to a provider they are pleased with. You don't get that loyalty (and repeat work) from buyers who focus on 'cheap'.

      A few marketers have found ways to leverage Fiver - but usually not through offering to work for $5. How likely are they to post that method in a thread so everyone can do it?

      P.S. Steven - YOU don't need to know what Fiver is - trust me on that:p

    Fiverr and it's many copy sites are a great place for new people to get their feet wet and start selling their services without the need for a website or affiliate system or whatever, but the WSO's I've seen are not realistic and promise the moon...

    Here's my challenge, If anyone who's posted a WSO on fiverr can show me a screenshot...where they've made $200 in one day...I'll give you the total of the $121 dollars I've made from fiverr and all these other sites in ten days and promote or JV the hell out of your offer...

    Fiverr is like anything else, it's a fad, it's an ideal platform for new people to provide services and hone their skills, with the addition of all the other clone sites it can be a good income for freeelancers and especialy article writers...

    But lets be realistic and explain it to them as a long term thing that requires some effort, just like everything worthwhile in internet marketing.

    YES, I'm working on a report about this, was thinking about a WSO, but with all the crap circulating about fiverr the best I could come up with was this challenge...

    Show me your 'Revenues' page where you made $200 in one day...and you get my total earnings from 16 fiverr clone sites as soon as they clear ( Some clear instantly and some, like fiverr, take 14 days)

    Anybody?
    hey Ouroboros, i have always used fiverr to outsource my jobs but never to learn stuff there. By the way could you post or PM me the list of the 16 fiverr clone sites you mentioned. could definitely make a good use of it.

    Doable yes. However, unrealistic to the max. Also, most jobs on FIBerror pay less than the minimum wage. I have found people to do grunt work super cheap, but this will not last as most will wise up.

    I think it's difficult to maintain a $200 every daywith Fiverr.

    However, I think it depends on the service you are offering and how much time is needed to deliver that requirement.

    Also to get 50 sales a day (in order to reach $200) you would probably need to have a featured listing which would then hit into your profit.

    Have you checked out some of the gift ideas? Some of them are bizarre! I think the concept of Fiverr is great but I certainly wouldn't try and make a decent income from it.

      I tried doing it once, hoping to attract customers for upsell. I did not manage to attract people even in the first place, forget upsells. My best day was 2 orders and the total so far has been 4 orders !!

      Anyway, if my life depended upon this, I would explore whether someone can do dirt-cheap PPC, and I have some other cool thoughts if I had the urge to do it. I don't know - I may have made a good amount (don't ask me what a good amount may be - I don't know) - going by my gutfeel.

    Of course you can make money, and $200 a day. Asking for "proof" is hardly constructive. Did you upscale and outsource across those clones?

    Or are you running around trying to do it all yourself? If so there's your answer.

    On top of that is the cash to be made offering extended services, upgrades, personal help/mentoring and other stuff through building the initial relationship on fiverr.

    I did a WSO on all of that - did you get that one?

      So you have screenshots then? I agree with Kay. I'm not really buying the fantastic extended services on a consistent basis. You tell people your work is worth $5 and afterwards the same ball park is where they expect to stay. Not saying you wont find someone here and there to pay you more but few and far in between.

      I think some people probably make more than the $200 though if they come up with something novel and simple to do. Outsourcing I suppose but no meaningful service is going to have people working for a fraction of the $5 without having serious hiring and firing headaches.

      More importantly what does it say about the state of internet marketing when people want to try and give this kind of labor intensive drudgery a go instead of traditional IM. Is the IM dream for most people that dead?

          Not really what I meant. I'd have to see good evidence that after you attract the people wanting to spend $5 for a service they then turn around and gladly pay you $100 for extended services. Been in business for far too long to believe that happens routinely. Cheap people usually stay cheap and thats not necessarily a bad thing for them.

            Did you read my post directly above your first one? I've actually paid for services beyond the original several times. And it has gone well above $100. And I'm positive it happens all of the time on there. Whether you believe it or not is really irrelevant.

            Is an upsell that foreign of a concept? Is this not the basis of what a vast array of internet marketing (and marketing in general) is built upon?

            There are many bigger fish that scour the waters of fiverr..just looking for a sampling, a sneak peek at something, and once they are satisfied with the person or service they find...they are more than willing to hire them long term, for longer projects, or to reimburse them accordingly.

              Exactly - you put it nicely. If you can find one person that does extremely nice work on there, why wouldn't you want to offer them more and keep them to yourself?

        For one, Marketing your services on the internet IS internet marketing.
        And, though I will admit to being somewhat of an anomaly, I have paid up to 100% more than a WSO was going for because the quality WAS that good. (I do not like taking advantage, a personal character defect). Even without running into a sucker like me, with a well crafted sales funnel that begins with a fiver gig, $200 does not appear to be out of the realm of possibility. IF in order to qualify for this challenge all money MUST go through Fiver.. That makes it harder, but depending on the service and how long it takes to accomplish the advertised task, again, not outside the realm of possibility. (although for myself, I am not sure I would even get up in the morning for $5. Lol.)

    Caleb hit the nail right on the head. Many people that are trying to figure out how to make money w/ fiverr and "reverse engineer" fiver, are missing the whole beauty of the concept.

    I, with my first purchase, realized the huge potential there. My first purchase on there was a voice over from a guy that does narrations for movie promos. It was an absolutely incredible piece of work for me he did. I got it for $5 and it's easily worth hundreds. So my immediate reaction was to look the guy up and take work from him at his regular price.

    So believe me - That was at least a $200 deal for him w/ just one gig.

    You're not going to make out big here just selling $5 at a time. But it's a brilliant way to get recognition for quality products or services. - I can think of dozens of ways that this could easily be the starting point for a huge sales funnel. You could sell a nice ebook, sprinkled w/ affiliate links or opt-ins. You could make videos for people - with an unobtrusive watermark to your website. And usually any product you sell on there, you have to provide for download. So you could bundle it in a zip file w/ other promotional stuff. Personally I think it could be a goldmine if you dig around a bit.

    I just tried fiverr for the first time - not as a seller but as a buyer, a terrible first experience!!!
    The site doesn't have any real support or instructions for buyers. Apparently, all contact is made via messages on their site only - not all that easy to access though. When clicking on one of the "place order" buttons, you're immediately directed to a payment screen which isn't too bad but... you're then back on their site that only states your payment was successful along with an order #. No way to know how to proceed from there! Stumbling around, I found the message box again and wrote to the seller for instructions on how to actually give him my order. I also found a message box for contacting customer service and told them I was a bit bewildered and asked if they had any instructions, etc. on the buying process and what I should be expecting now that they had my $5.
    That was 2 days ago. I still haven't heard back from customer service but I did finally get a message from the seller today - saying that he no longer offered this service!!!! Great! Here i thought I was doing something that would be just an inexpensive, quick boost to some affiliate marketing and this ad wasn't even active any longer!!! Just finding your messages alone is confusing and now I have to figure out how to get a refund. This whole site is a maze - at least for me as a first time buyer. I'm not sure I'll take a chance on it again till and IF I ever hear back from their customer service. I had also considered the possibility of being a seller but from this little experience along with all the comments here it may not be worth it all!
    I know you are all probably more interested in selling than buying but I'd be interested to know what if any experience you've had on the buyer's side of 5'rr.
    Thanks for letting me rant!

    The only way to make money FAST with Fiverr, I'd say, is having a HUGE amount of Facebook/Twitter friends and having one of those gigs where you promote stuff to them.

    It's fast and easy..

    I've made quite a bit of money from Fiverr, but it takes too long and the payoff is horrible. $4 a job, come on!

    I'd rather s*ck for a buck.

        Hey, come on now. Some of you are not reading all of the posts here. I made a great case above on how $200 would be easy. And to be quite blunt, I make well above that amount from fiver - (indirectly) but I'm not going to be stupid enough to post screen-shots here for people to crowd me out of my find. - But believe me there are thousands of ways to make money from fiver, and NO it doesn't HAVE to be $5 at a time.

    I've never used Fiverr but reading through the comments, it seems as though it can provide a platform to impress potential clients who would perhaps like to acquire your services for a long term business relationship.

    Work smart not hard, comes to mind.

    As Caleb mentioned earlier, show people what you can do and they may just pay you more than $5.

    It's a loss leader site?

    Some peeps on fiver don't even bother to offer the services that they advertise - they post a "sample" of their work, which contains a link to their site or an email where you can contact them. I contacted a guy that was offering voiceover "for five bucks" and when I emailed him, he quoted me $50 for 30 seconds voiceover and that's if I had all the per work done for him (writing the script, etc.)...

    Making a living $5 at a time (actually $4 after commissions) is a hard way to go. But Fiverr is a great way of giving people a taste of what you can do. I have found several freelancers in different fields on Fiverr, tested them for five bucks, then given them bigger projects later. So it can be a great marketing tool.

    If you were CRAZY enough to think up 3 or 4 hundred different things to do as a "GIG" and then CRAZY enough to take the time to post those 3 or 4 hundred "GIGS" on the site you might be able to sustain $200 per day.

    I study the site last week for a couple of days and it appears the folks making money have many GIGS they offer, not just 1 or 2.

    It appears (to me at least) that the offers which consistently appear at the top of Fiverr are the "novelty" gigs, which mostly involve sexy girls dressed in revealing clothing holding up a sign or doing something crazy for you which is then photographed. There seems to be an endless demand for such services, judging from the comments I have read. It'd also be pretty easy to upsell additional services on the backend without having to do a lot more work.

      Hmmm, Taking your theory I could almost guarantee a $200 day.

      I'm sitting here in an apartment in the Philippines. My wife has about 30 very cute female cousins living within walking distance. All of them very interested in making money since jobs are hard to get.

      We have a very nice digital camera, high-speed internet, and my wife loves to take photos.

      Maybe I should tell her....

      (I guess that blows the theory, I won't make a dime, my wife will make all of it.)

    Fiverr and it's many copy sites are a great place for new people to get their feet wet and start selling their services without the need for a website or affiliate system or whatever, but the WSO's I've seen are not realistic and promise the moon...

    Here's my challenge, If anyone who's posted a WSO on fiverr can show me a screenshot...where they've made $200 in one day...I'll give you the total of the $121 dollars I've made from fiverr and all these other sites in ten days and promote or JV the hell out of your offer...

    Fiverr is like anything else, it's a fad, it's an ideal platform for new people to provide services and hone their skills, with the addition of all the other clone sites it can be a good income for freeelancers and especialy article writers...

    But lets be realistic and explain it to them as a long term thing that requires some effort, just like everything worthwhile in internet marketing.

    YES, I'm working on a report about this, was thinking about a WSO, but with all the crap circulating about fiverr the best I could come up with was this challenge...

    Show me your 'Revenues' page where you made $200 in one day...and you get my total earnings from 16 fiverr clone sites as soon as they clear ( Some clear instantly and some, like fiverr, take 14 days)

    Anybody?

    It's called upselling...

    Sell a simple introductory offer or service on fiverr and then upsell them to a more complex service or complimentary product. That's how it's done!

      The thing is that according to Fiver`s rules you`re not supossed to upsell anything. So it may become a problem at some point.

        No one said that the upsell had to take place right after the initial sale? Since they paid you ($5) they are a paying customer so they will need something else. Your job is to figure out what it is they need to go along with their $5 purchase.

      OMG, this is the key!!! thanks Mike for saying it, I read another fellow warriors saying that fiverr is a way to get leads, FINALLY somebody is talking!!!.

      I have done 200 dollars or more a day on fiverr and I will explain you how:

      Fiverr to me is just the place to qualify prospects, I create an info product about a problem they have and sell if for 5 bucks.

      Am I interested in the 4 bucks? NOT AT ALL!!! I am interested in the person buying this information, when somebody is willing to pay to solve a problem it is because the pain is bothering too much.

      Once they pay I send them the information in exchange of their contact information, once done that my help desk people call him to make sure he/she
      got the information requested and immediately ask him what problem he is facing more than 50% of the times these people are willing to pay more for somebody to take care of that problem, here is when the sell is done.

      Yes it is called upsell, yes fiverr is to get leads and yes, that is not IM that is plain marketing and sales process.

      That is how I have sold more than 200/day on fiverr and I am sure it is the way many people here on the forum have done it, If you have not apply this model today.

      Hope it helps

    You really have to be able to offer a product that a lot of people want AND that you can do 50 times in one day. Writing articles is the best way, but how good can a ten minute article actually be - but then again it's only 5 bucks.

    It is very difficult if we just think inside the box.
    If you just depend on your service then $200 a day is very difficult
    anyway, how about using fiverr to generate traffic or just one stepping stone for your main earning. It has a very good traffic right now.
    the way above can be categorized indirectly as "making money from fiverr"

    Fiverr is interesting, and I can see the potential, pretty soon I expect it to be saturated with either people doing too little for the fiver, or freelancers undercutting the competition till only the cheapest can make any money, which puts off those in it for the money in the first place

    Oki, I just joined Fiverr. I want to know if it's possible or not. I'm going to take up the challenge and do it for a month as much as possible. Let's see how much at the most I'm able to make.

    I dont know if $200 a day would be possible. But, if it is, then it's going to be great additional income.

    I am noticing some of the regular sellers I've used on Fiverr have stopped doing gigs anymore. I've emailed some privately and they say its because it just wasn't worth all the effort for so little...

    If you think outside the box, use your gigs to drive traffic to other services/products it is definitely possible. I have bought some decent plr vids etc on fiverr, there is some decent stuff on there if you look hard enough.

    Fiverr and it's many copy sites are a great place for new people to get their feet wet and start selling their services without the need for a website or affiliate system or whatever, but the WSO's I've seen are not realistic and promise the moon...

    Here's my challenge, If anyone who's posted a WSO on fiverr can show me a screenshot...where they've made $200 in one day...I'll give you the total of the $121 dollars I've made from fiverr and all these other sites in ten days and promote or JV the hell out of your offer...

    Fiverr is like anything else, it's a fad, it's an ideal platform for new people to provide services and hone their skills, with the addition of all the other clone sites it can be a good income for freeelancers and especialy article writers...

    But lets be realistic and explain it to them as a long term thing that requires some effort, just like everything worthwhile in internet marketing.

    YES, I'm working on a report about this, was thinking about a WSO, but with all the crap circulating about fiverr the best I could come up with was this challenge...

    Show me your 'Revenues' page where you made $200 in one day...and you get my total earnings from 16 fiverr clone sites as soon as they clear ( Some clear instantly and some, like fiverr, take 14 days)

    Anybody?
    I know of some clone sites, but there are really 16? can you provide me a list. I only know about 5 of them.

    I have ZERO doubt that there are people who have done it. But they are likely including their outside sales that came with it which is fine. I imagine the key si that you ensure followup to offer other services or products.

    I bought A WSO about making money on Fiverr. I just started actually posting "gigs" but have not seen any money yet. The WSO I purchased was highly recommended by other Warriors on this forum. I believe it to be fairly well written however I think that, like it is said in the WSO, it takes a while to make sales and get positive feedback to get in the "featured" section.

    Also how popular is the gig? My two gigs are "how to get out of a traffic ticket" and a "travel checklist" Both are not very popular when you have to compete with people who promise to put you in front of their 30,000 fans or a picture taken in front of a John Deere tractor. It's a new experience for me. Did I get taken? Maybe, but I think with more thought and work I could make a little money on it. The key is the effort i put in. And since I have alot more time than money, I need to spend more time! It's kinda like getting toned abs. You can't buy a belt that "pulses" your abs into shape, you have to work at it.

    I wrote several articles for my work at home money site on Fiverr. During the process I spoke to several Fiverr people who had been featured etc. None of them were making $200 daily on a regular basis but they were making a nice chunk of change that made a difference to them.

    With so many gigs on Fiverr in order to cash in and stay noticed you would have to promote it.

    Now I recently hired someone at Fiverr to perform a service for me. They used a paid program to complete the service that I could also sign up for. That program offers an affiliate payout. So here is one way you could make some change. Put on a service and then perform it. Then send an affiliate link to the person so they can sign up to perform the service for others using the same service you are using. You would just have to make sure that does not violate TOS.

    Another way would be to continually send out the same item over and over so you only have to make it once. But here again you continually have to promote.

    Considering that Fiverr keeps a buck you are getting a fourer is it worth it?

    Personally not for me. I would rather make a fiftier or a hundreder. But it is great that others are willing to do it and I just recently snagged a $5 bargain that saved me hours of time

    I think the key to making big money from Fiverr and clone sites is to upsell and build relationships with prospects so you can offer them something more privately. Another way of making big money is to sell something that takes very little time (Facebook Fan Page updates, Tweets to followers) so that you can do lots of orders in a day.

      The problem with that is that Fiverr's terms of service basically forbids the process of upselling or going outside of Fiverr to get work done.

    I posted several small packages of PLR articles that I had written.

    I kept getting spammed, just like I get spammed on Craigslist.

    People wanted to hire me to write great quality articles for them each month, but only pay me $5 for the original content.

    It was ridiculous.

    I would very much second that.

    I have only started looking into fiverr from a provider perspective (LOVE it as a customer, especially for creative gifts!), but the only way I ever looked at it is as the $5 paying you for, or at least offsetting the costs of your marketing and exposing many people to your services. For that I do see it as a beautiful and powerful concept.

    And also as a place to make a little side income with those random passions you have that you just love doing, but for which there either isn't a regular market, or getting into it would take more than your priorities allow. Look around and you'll see a lot of people making a couple hundred dollars a month just having a blast and sharing their gifts with the world. A perfect place to help you transition from being money-motivated to fun and giving motivated in my view...

    Exactly...Fiverr and the clones are a TOOL for you to upsell and get more business. Yes, many online marketers will scoff at the "work" you have to do to get that person in the sales funnel....well alot of people on here still market to offliners. They can make good money upselling and sending them through their sales funnel.

    Onliners that think it is silly, well make it easy on yourself. Outsource the gigs or do something REALLY easy (here's a hint - go buy a really cool Photohsop action and offer the service). I have one that does some cool stuff that cost me a whole $4 to buy...it runs in the background while I am doing other things BAM! 10 seconds I have a $5 gig done. Now I can tell them "hey if you like that, I do a whole lot of other stuff reasonably...go check out my website if you need anything". Do I do all this stuff, NO! I outsource it and keep the spread. That is how you make $200/day using Fiverr and the clones.

    Personally I don't do this method very much, I have bigger fish to fry like the above mentioned product launches ect. But it is a GREAT way for a beginner IM'er to get people looking at their services, so don't dismiss it.

    Oh yeah...not a FAD....elance and all those are still around and there will alwasy be people wanting stuff for cheap and people willing or able (ie live in a country where $5 for 10 minutes of work is GREAT money) to provide cheap labor.

    I do understand making money from the leads that you generate from fiverr, can produce more than 200 in one day.
    But I am curious to know if anyone can setup to the challenge of making 200 dollars in one day from fiverr directly I think it can be done. I might try it myself.
