Newbies! Are You Broke? Here's How To Make Money TODAY...

182 replies
Hey guys,

A couple threads back someone posted about how they're quitting IM because they have NO money. That sucks, so here's an ULTRA-simple way to make money online TODAY.

When I quit my job and I was DEAD BROKE, this put food on the table until I could figure things out.

If you need money NOW, this is what you do:

1) Create a Fiverr.com account and whip up a quick 5-10 page report with some good information. This can be about ANYTHING from tarot cards to horoscopes, to SEO, to backlinks, to a list of other sites like Fiverr.com. You can use PLR, or just follow the old screenwriter's adage and "write what you know".

2) Go to Clickbank.com and find 2-3 products related to the niche that your report is about. At the end of your report, talk about where your customers can go for more information, and then pre-sell them on the awesomeness of these Clickbank products and INCLUDE your affiliate link. Cloak your link if possible.

3) Post a gig on Fiverr.com with a REALLY catchy headline - look at the other headlines in your niche and OUT-MARKET them. Offer MORE value than anyone else.

4) When someone orders one of your gigs, direct them to a download page where you have them enter their name and e-mail to get their report, or, if you don't want to do that, offer them a BONUS report in exchange for the opt-in. Either way, use Fiverr.com to BUILD YOUR LIST of people who are interested in that niche...then you can promote to them over and over again.

You should be able to start making sales from your gigs almost immediately, and you should also start getting commissions from your back-end Clickbank products.

Then re-post your gigs to other Fiverr clone sites like Zeerk.com, etc.

The greatest thing about this is that you're selling INFORMATION (which takes 10 seconds to e-mail to someone) rather than offering a SERVICE (which takes time). You don't have time to waste, so sell INFORMATION.

If you're broke, or if you need cash NOW, you can have this up-and-running by tomorrow morning.
Hop to it!

    Just be careful to do your "upsell" via the attachment function they provide for delivering finished work. If you refer a buyer to your own site and fiverr becomes aware of it they'll disable your account. (It's in their TOS)

        I already thought about this myself yet was concerned whether this was permitted. Thought you could only offer services on Fiverr (which I hate )

        I love some easy money and this sounds like a no-brainer. Imagine how many reports you can sell for 5 bucks.

        Edit: I misunderstood, should I actually offer services as well? :S
        Someone here mentioned you could get banned for redirecting people to your website?

          Hey Katya,

          Sorry for the late response! I just saw this question (been busy with my WSO).

          The most bang for your buck on Fiverr is to offer INFORMATION, rather than services. Just send your customers a PDF with the info in a report (like a 5-10 page, no fluff ebook) and include some kind of an upsell on the back-end that they would be interested in. This can be anything, but usually a Clickbank product.

          You should ALSO offer them a free bonus in exchange for an opt-in. The options are limited only by your imagination. It's just the simplest way I know of to start building a list of BUYERS and also making quick cash online.

          As I said before, this is one way you could be making money TODAY.

      This sounds like a great idea for listbuilding Russ. I'm just a little concerned about how one can get in trouble or have their account disabled by using your methods? Can someone further clarify what NOT to do? Also, is offering a PDF considered a service?

        Rule #1: DO NOT share personal contact information in any email message via Fiverr (their TOS does not specifically mention anything about attachments)

        INSTEAD Create a text file, PDF Flyer, or anything else that you can attach to the message. Fiverr does not screen attachments.

        Rule #2: If you get busted for breaking Rule #1, be prepared to kiss some major rear. I actually got my account suspended when I first started out. It took me 3 days and 2 super-apologetic emails to Support begging for reinstatement and promising that I learned my lesson.

        INSTEAD Obey Rule #1 at all times.

        I like to call rule #1 the Golden Rule of Fiverr. Obey it and you will prosper.

        Cheers,
        Brian

    Good stuff, Russ!

    I love testing internet money making things out, so I think I will give this a shot just for fun, but I need a goal to target. What's realistic for, say, 3 days? $30? Too high? Too low?

    I got a friend I like to bet with on things like this, so I'm thinking he would be down for competition. But since I am not familiar with Fiverr, I don't know what to realistically expect to make in a few days.

      You know, one day a few years back I would have really liked this idea - but there are holes in this plan.

      For one, it is not a good idea IMO to go randomly suggesting clickbank products that you "think" will fit in. If you can't buy them, the least you should do is a bit of research on the product creator and their reputation - and even an email to them personally.

      Also, you add in the "list building" thing there too. This is not free or something a newbie typically figures out in a day.

      I applaud your catchy title, but I highly doubt 99.9999999999999 percent of all newbies could actually pull this off in a responsible and long term effective manner without taking some time to do some due diligence.

        Of course you're right, but when you have to put food on the table, you don't have time to screw around. I wrote this method for people who have just lost their job, or who are desperate to make money NOW.

        There's no reason you can't just pick a CB product with high-gravity that you know converts well, and go from there. And building a list is 100% optional with this method...in the beginning, at least, you can just pocket the $5 from the gig and whatever you make on the upsell.

        I did this when I was a complete newbie. If I can do it, so can anyone else.

          Picking any random product just based on its gravity is irresponsible in my opinion. Most of the guys here, especially those that have been members for quite a while, will agree that this kind of behavior is giving IM a bad reputation. This is just the same as selling a product with blind sales copy, false scarcity, and outright lies. If you have no idea what the product is and what it is all about, whether the product actually follows through on what it promises, you are leading yourself and IM down a dark and murky path.

            Really? Feeding your family is a dark and murky path? Promoting successful products that solve problems gives IM a bad name?

            I'm not telling people to promote spammy CPA offers or shady diet rebills. I'm telling them to find a product that they think works and pre-sell it with a $5 report that has valuable information. There ia absolutely nothing wrong with that.

            Stop judging.

              I think both of you were misunderstanding what each other was saying. It seems like he felt you were suggesting people to just pick random products they know absolutely nothing about and make up a bunch of phony reviews like so many people do. You were not doing this, but I think this is how he interpreted your original post.

              You are putting words words in my mouth. I never said feeding my family was a dark and murky path! Just because a product sells well and has high gravity does NOT mean it's a good product. It just means that the products affiliates are getting the product out onto their list and the original sales page is doing a damn fine job of getting people to buy. How do you know if that product actually delivers what it promises without actually doing some research on it. By promoting a product you have not extensively studied to see if it is any good or not is what I meant by leading people and IM down a dark and murky path. If everyone followed your example this is what would happen.

              Don't expect me to shut up just because I don't agree with your tactics in this case. Did you do any research into this idea before doing it? Did you ask other IMers what they thought and got their opinions first?

                Of course I'm not saying that. Find something you believe in, promote it aggressively, and don't waste any time. And don't get other people's opinions first, just do what you think is right. That's what I'm saying.

                  A lot of us are really struggling, and this is certainly worth a go. I agree it is important to do some homework and be sure to promote something that you feel is of value to the interest sought, but that is kinda common sense for most.

                  If at all possible, it's probably a good idea to buy the product before you start promoting it. That way, you know it's a good product. And having the product to look at will help you when writing your presell.

                  On the other hand, if it's a bad product, get a refund and try again.

      It depends on how catchy your headline and gig are, really. Another thing to consider is that most people on Fiverr won't buy until you have some positive feedback, so sales beget sales.

      Of course, all it takes to create 10 accounts on Fiverr is 10 different e-mail addresses... :rolleyes:

      You could, for example, write gig that says, "I Will Show You Exactly How I Lost 15 Pounds in Ten Days for $5". Then you include a report with before-and-after pictures showing how you did it and explaining the method you used - in essence, pre-selling a Clickbank product. Then you stick your affiliate link into the report (cloaked, of course) and tell them where they can go "for more information".

      The idea is that people are paying YOU to become leads. Make sense? You just have to make sure your front-end report has good-quality information that's worth $5...not the whole enchilada, but maybe like the tortilla.

    Fiverr can be a great way to make money.

    Personally I've probably made over $800 on the Front End of Fiverr but the back-end is key.

    Just be careful what you put in the messages you send on Fiverr, I have been warned on some of my accounts about offering upsells and other non-fiverr service.

    What you can do like Russ said is direct them to another site or I usually have a file inside the download folder that also directs them to my upsell/list builder.

    The key to Fiverr is like Article Marketing, it's a numbers game. Some gigs don't sell, some sell a bit and some make the majority of my revenue (there all pdf's, like Russ also suggested). So constantly upload/take down gigs that don't work.

    When I quit my job and I was DEAD BROKE, this put food on the table until I could figure things out.

    If you need money NOW, this is what you do:

    1) Create a Fiverr.com account and whip up a quick 5-10 page report with some good information. This can be about ANYTHING from tarot cards to horoscopes, to SEO, to backlinks, to a list of other sites like Fiverr.com. You can use PLR, or just follow the old screenwriter's adage and "write what you know".

    2) Go to Clickbank.com and find 2-3 products related to the niche that your report is about. At the end of your report, talk about where your customers can go for more information, and then pre-sell them on the awesomeness of these Clickbank products and INCLUDE your affiliate link. Cloak your link if possible.

    3) Post a gig on Fiverr.com with a REALLY catchy headline - look at the other headlines in your niche and OUT-MARKET them. Offer MORE value than anyone else.

    4) When someone orders one of your gigs, direct them to a download page where you have them enter their name and e-mail to get their report, or, if you don't want to do that, offer them a BONUS report in exchange for the opt-in. Either way, use Fiverr.com to BUILD YOUR LIST of people who are interested in that niche...then you can promote to them over and over again.

    You should be able to start making sales from your gigs almost immediately, and you should also start getting commissions from your back-end Clickbank products.

    Then re-post your gigs to other Fiverr clone sites like Zeerk.com, etc.

    The greatest thing about this is that you're selling INFORMATION (which takes 10 seconds to e-mail to someone) rather than offering a SERVICE (which takes time). You don't have time to waste, so sell INFORMATION.

    If you're broke, or if you need cash NOW, you can have this up-and-running by tomorrow morning.
    Hop to it!

    Russ
    This is a great idea, Russ, and something I have never even considered. Can you or someone else tell me exactly how to do #4?

      Okay, here's an example gig off the top of my head. Feel free to steal it and post it on Fiverr.

      Let's do one in the self-defense niche. That's fun.

      Add this disclaimer: The following is for educational purposes only! Under no circumstances should you try this on a real person.

      "I Will Show You How to Drop Anyone to the Ground in Less Than One Second for $5".

      I would write a report about how "where the head goes, the body must follow". All you have to do to drop anyone to the ground is grab their hair with your right hand and their chin with your left - then pull down with your right hand and up with your left. As you do this, step back with your right foot and turn and face behind you. They'll drop to the ground right at your feet. (Try this SLOWLY with someone to see what I mean).

      I would include 3-4 photos to illustrate the exact technique. You're essentially twisting their neck and using that to lead them to the ground.

      I've done this in real life, and I don't care how big the guy is, he will drop like a stone. WARNING: Do this SLOWLY. Doing this with a fast, crisp motion can tweak/break someone's neck, and you don't want that.

      Then, on the back-end, I would promote some self-defense related product that looks cool.

      So, there you go - it's good information that delivers what is promised. It's "catchy" - like a fun little tidbit of information. That's what you want to go for. Make sense?

    Russ,

    you hit the nail on the head ... fiverr.com is my best friend and posting gigs that require no time (service) but product (advice) is the way to go.

    I'm nearing $100/ day just on fiverr... this will not last for very long, gotta take *full* advantage of this opportunity.

    Ok, here's my early report.......

    I created 2 ads about 2 hours ago. Put absolutely no effort into them. Took me all of 5 minutes to sign-up and create them both.

    1 ad has had almost 100 views so far, the other has had just 15.

    No sales yet, but it looks like 1 guy is about to buy 1 of my products. That's fine, but this guy has sent me about 10 messages to buy a $5 product. Seriously, it's quite annoying. It's $5. I know, I know.......$5 might be a lot of money to someone. That's not the point. The point is, if this is what we can expect from Fiverr to make a $5 sale, is it really worth it??

    For those of you that have used this site before, is this normal? If it is, no way will I continue using the site. Don't get me wrong, I'm all about customer service. But come on........there's no product on the market worth asking 100 questions about that costs 5 bucks.

      Yes, this is normal, and the reason I took down all my gigs was just this reason. But fortunately I am not flat broke and so have the luxury. If I was desperate I would just answer the messages. Once you have that first sale, you will get more. Success breeds success. Nobody wants to be the first one to buy from a new seller. You will get less emails as time goes on. Add more info into your description and just refer people back to your original description. With every question from a potential buyer, put the answer in the description and refer the person back to the description.

      Fiverr is great for reliable cash. Just remember it is really "Four-err" as they keep a dollar on every gig, plus paypal keeps a bit, and there is that annoying two week lag on first payment.

        I just wanted to try it out and see if it actually worked. Don't think I will be putting up any more ads on there. I just like to try things like this out for fun. I got a bunch of messages this morning and didn't respond to any of them. It's 5 bucks!! Either buy or don't!!

          Well, that certainly is a viable response to the messages, as well. My advice is meant for people who need to close that first sale. After building a good reputation, they can start ignoring messages if need be.:rolleyes:

            I know a tire kicker when I see one - been in sales long enough! The 2 ads I posted were self explanatory and I laid out everything in detail of what they would get. The first person that responded literally asked me 8 or 9 questions. Why even waste the time for such a low quality product? It's not like I was selling him a brand new sports car. The next person asked me the same question twice so I stopped responding. Then I woke up this morning to an inbox full of questions.

            I will say, I did find some things on that site that I am going to purchase. Some funny stuff on there!

          EXACTLY. The whole idea behind Fiverr is to make money, generate leads, and promote back-end products while spending as little time as possible. I'll answer one question, maybe two...more than that, I just say "Buy it or don't".

          Once you get your first 2 or 3 gigs posted, you should log on ONCE per day, send people their reports, and that's it. It shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes, tops. You should make about 2 sales per gig per day in the beginning, so that's $24 in 10 minutes (not counting back-end sales).

          Huge money? $720 a month. That could be rent for some people, or a car payment on a pretty nice car. Either way, for 10 minutes of work? Why not?

            You do make an excellent point. If I continue selling on there, I think it will be quick ads that I don't put much effort into because I just don't have the time. If I get sales from it, great. If not, there was nothing invested anyways.

            Besides, there's some pretty cool stuff to buy on there (and funny/bizarre). I considered purchasing a girl on there to be my Facebook girlfriend for a week just to see to pull a joke on my actual girlfriend! Then I thought maybe that's not such a bright idea!

    That seems oddly specific for a starting idea.

    Probably because it was close to the front of your mind.

    I think we need to talk. If you're in that niche, and have some experience in it, perhaps even some credentials... I think we can probably do some good work together. And your recent WSO of the Day success certainly shows that you have a solid ability to market your products... I was WSO of the Day on Monday, myself. Let's talk about some stuff, if you're interested in this sort of thing.

    $10 for maybe 10 minutes of work! That was pretty easy to land 2 sales. No effort into it whatsoever. Now the question is........if you actually put effort into it, can you actually make decent money on Fiverr or was those 2 sales just beginners luck?

      Congratulations, man!!! The more gigs you put out there, the more sales you'll get. Just pick 5 niches, write 5 very small mini-reports, and promote 5 back-end offers.

      If you can make $10 in ten minutes, you can scale it up from there!

      The funny thing is - someone may think they are a "Newbie" and come to find out after talking to others outside of internet marketing, they are extremely knowledgeable. I don't consider myself a techie, but I have built part of my helping local businesses with simple tasks like a Facebook Fanpage to more technical stuff like website redesign. I partnered with a web designer who also specializes in SEO as well as print material and merchandise and sell his services. It does take some time, but I make great money for talking to people.

      Now that I have a good number of contacts locally, the orders come in without me having to do anything making it somewhat automated.

      I also make money selling stuff on Ebay for commission. I also use Craigslist, etc. I made over $1500 in one month off of just one customer.

      The best thing - I work for myself. Nothing feels greater than that.

      Once you know some basics, you are light years ahead of the general population. Take the skills you have now and find a way to monetize. Don't give up without trying every single option you can think of.

      Cheers!

        Hey all,

        I could not resist jumping in on this conversation. I should rename myself "FiverrFanForever". LOL

        Seriously though, I started doing advertising for article writing, proofreading and editorial reviews on Fiverr back in late October. I also posted at some of the sister sites like GigBux, JustaFive, TenBux, etc.

        Let me just tell you this:

        These sites are what have made me close to $2,000 since then - in not even 3 months' time. I have acquired well over a dozen loyal clients, many of whom had more than one gig, many of whom are business owners, and I could upsell other services to them. It is also through these sites that I met a guy who took me under his wing, helped me learn how to provide support to OptimizePress, a premium WordPress template, and find clients to build blog/micro-websites for them.

        For all of you who think Fiverr is a $5 gig, you are dead wrong. Fiverr is a cheap, inexpensive breeding ground to find folks you can try out before you really start spending your hard-earned cash. I have found, many folks come to Fiverr and view it as a cheap testing ground to find a new outsource for their needs.

        Now, that said....you DO have to play by the rules - and know what rules you can circumvent. I will teach anyone interested reading this thread about my "ninja" techniques that have brought me the success I have seen. They are very simple and straightforward, but give me 15 minutes of your time, and I can help you hit the ground running.

        Cheers,

          Hi Brian,

          Would love to hear about your Fiverr strategies. Also, when you say you have made over $2,000, is that $2,000 of Fiverr sales or is that additional sales that have resulted from Fiverr sales?

          Thanks!

            Hey Jon,

            I know folks throw numbers around all the time to tell fantastic stories and such - I don't consider mine fantastic - just sheer fact.

            The money I made started with simple Fiverr-like gigs, that turned into bigger projects and more work - the biggest being meeting someone who helped train me in blog design, building on what I already knew.

            Now, time for the disclaimer - my results may not be typical, and others should not expect the same results. However, those who use some of my ninja tricks should definitely be able to make more than the $4 each gig offers.

            I should have said it earlier - anyone who wants the insider scoop, drop me a PM or your Skype name - we can talk.

            Cheers,
            Brian

          Hi Brian,

          I would like to hear how you are doing things. I have a fiverr account and I do have gigs but have only sold one gig. I do wordpress headers but have sold just one package. So it would be great to hear from someone, who is having success.

          Regards,
          Debbie

          Now, that said....you DO have to play by the rules - and know what rules you can circumvent. I will teach anyone interested reading this thread about my "ninja" techniques that have brought me the success I have seen. They are very simple and straightforward, but give me 15 minutes of your time, and I can help you hit the ground running.

          Cheers,

      Okay, just so everyone is clear - fiverr does take 14 days to pay you after you do your project. I don't know if that changes once your account reaches a higher level or not.

      ALSO, you have to do everything through fiverr - they say that will close your account if you re-direct. The deliver attatchment method I am not sure about.

      Okay - I hope that helps.

      You don't. You just send them a PDF (this fulfills the gig) and then include "helpful links" to some back-end stuff.

          This is a numbers game. Don't expect big money with just one report, but I think you'll be surprised at how quickly things can accumulate when you have several of these reports out on Fiverr and its clones.

    Hey guys,

    A couple threads back someone posted about how they're quitting IM because they have NO money. That sucks, so here's an ULTRA-simple way to make money online TODAY.

    When I quit my job and I was DEAD BROKE, this put food on the table until I could figure things out.

    If you need money NOW, this is what you do:

    1) Create a Fiverr.com account and whip up a quick 5-10 page report with some good information. This can be about ANYTHING from tarot cards to horoscopes, to SEO, to backlinks, to a list of other sites like Fiverr.com. You can use PLR, or just follow the old screenwriter's adage and "write what you know".

    2) Go to Clickbank.com and find 2-3 products related to the niche that your report is about. At the end of your report, talk about where your customers can go for more information, and then pre-sell them on the awesomeness of these Clickbank products and INCLUDE your affiliate link. Cloak your link if possible.

    3) Post a gig on Fiverr.com with a REALLY catchy headline - look at the other headlines in your niche and OUT-MARKET them. Offer MORE value than anyone else.

    4) When someone orders one of your gigs, direct them to a download page where you have them enter their name and e-mail to get their report, or, if you don't want to do that, offer them a BONUS report in exchange for the opt-in. Either way, use Fiverr.com to BUILD YOUR LIST of people who are interested in that niche...then you can promote to them over and over again.

    You should be able to start making sales from your gigs almost immediately, and you should also start getting commissions from your back-end Clickbank products.

    Then re-post your gigs to other Fiverr clone sites like Zeerk.com, etc.

    The greatest thing about this is that you're selling INFORMATION (which takes 10 seconds to e-mail to someone) rather than offering a SERVICE (which takes time). You don't have time to waste, so sell INFORMATION.

    If you're broke, or if you need cash NOW, you can have this up-and-running by tomorrow morning.
    Hop to it!

    Hey guys,

    Just to answer the question that keeps coming up, if you provide a PDF with useful information, and promote a product on the back-end, you will never have a problem with Fiverr. Just follow the directions, and you will make money.

    Wash, rinse, repeat - multiple gigs across multiple Fiverr-type sites.

    It is not that easy as it sounds. I have a few gigs on fiverr (a WoW guide plus article writing)..and i think the traffic volume is simply too low to make "lots" of money on fiverr in short time.

    Within 5 days or so i now wrote 6 articles....minus fiverr fees (what a joke!) and paypal fees this nets under $4/article. In addition, they hold your money for 14 days.

    So i think fiverr alone doesnt cut it.

      So i think fiverr alone doesnt cut it.
      Did you even read the original post? Considering the entire point was about a) selling information rather than services and b) using that information to promote on the back end, I'm going to assume you didn't.

      Don't get distracted by all the different IM methods that are bombarding you on a daily basis. Focus on one at a time, get good at it, and then move on to the next method/system.

    So basically you advocate they create false reviews about something they have never bought themselves or used?

    Why not just go and mug someone to make a bit of money?

      Are you serious? They're more than welcome to e-mail the author of the product and get a review copy if they can. They could also buy it and check it out. Or they could promote something they're already using - in my last WSO I promoted Optimize Press because it RULES.

      And I never said create a false review, I just said recommend it. For example, "If you're interested in more information about panic attacks, you might be interested in..."

      If you think that's the equivalent of mugging someone, you've obviously never been mugged. Grow up.

        What you said was "then pre-sell them on the awesomeness of these Clickbank products and INCLUDE your affiliate link".

        Now you are saying "And I never said create a false review, I just said recommend it."

        So how can you pre-sell them on awesomeness if you have never owned it or used it, or even recommend it?

        So which is it Russ?

          Exactly. That's why they should promote things they believe in. But I didn't tell them to do that, because I have faith that the people reading this forum can make their own moral and ethical decisions, without obnoxious haters like you telling them how to live.

              Hi great thread Russ! Thanks for the helpful info.

              Does anyone have any tips on how to create a 5-10 page guide? I've never created one before. Should it have a title page, disclaimer, and table of contents? Or should it look more informal because it's a personal guide you're giving someone over Fiverr?

                There are no hard and fast rules here, but in my opinion you'd want to make it look like you took some time and effort in making it look right. Remember that you have the ability to upsell other products to your purchaser, so by putting some effort and care into your report creation, you make a great first impression - this also increases your chances of getting great feedback!

      As I understand it, you are providing an informative report in return for $5.

      The Clickbank stuff is the upsell.

      I do stand to be corrected if I have got the wrong end of the stick though.

    When I quit my job and I was DEAD BROKE, this put food on the table until I could figure things out.

    If you need money NOW, this is what you do:

    1) Create a Fiverr.com account and whip up a quick 5-10 page report with some good information. This can be about ANYTHING from tarot cards to horoscopes, to SEO, to backlinks, to a list of other sites like Fiverr.com. You can use PLR, or just follow the old screenwriter's adage and "write what you know".

    2) Go to Clickbank.com and find 2-3 products related to the niche that your report is about. At the end of your report, talk about where your customers can go for more information, and then pre-sell them on the awesomeness of these Clickbank products and INCLUDE your affiliate link. Cloak your link if possible.

    3) Post a gig on Fiverr.com with a REALLY catchy headline - look at the other headlines in your niche and OUT-MARKET them. Offer MORE value than anyone else.

    4) When someone orders one of your gigs, direct them to a download page where you have them enter their name and e-mail to get their report, or, if you don't want to do that, offer them a BONUS report in exchange for the opt-in. Either way, use Fiverr.com to BUILD YOUR LIST of people who are interested in that niche...then you can promote to them over and over again.

    You should be able to start making sales from your gigs almost immediately, and you should also start getting commissions from your back-end Clickbank products.

    Then re-post your gigs to other Fiverr clone sites like Zeerk.com, etc.

    The greatest thing about this is that you're selling INFORMATION (which takes 10 seconds to e-mail to someone) rather than offering a SERVICE (which takes time). You don't have time to waste, so sell INFORMATION.

    If you're broke, or if you need cash NOW, you can have this up-and-running by tomorrow morning.
    Hop to it!

    Russ
    Wow- that's a good idea... really good. If I could think of clever things like that I'd probably be making a lot more money at this. The funny thing is I've done alright just doing very basic stuff over and over again like review sites, niche blogs, and article marketing...

    Thanks again.

    I definitely think this a great way to make some quick money.

    Like you said, offer TONS of value- but make it INFORMATION so you can distribute it quickly!

    So instead of offering one ebook on weight loss, offer 3.

    Or instead of a guide on how to install wordpress, how about one for wordpress and one for html.

      Don't expect to get rich off just 1 gig. You have to test and experiment to see what works, and for best results you'll have to be selling multiple reports not only on Fiverr, but similar sites as well.

      Why would people want to buy reports? Asking this question is like asking why people would want to buy any type of digital information online - people also used to doubt that they could sell any digital reports or information on Clickbank, and look where the marketplace is today.

    Thought I'd share my experience with trying this.

    There was a list posted on here of fiverr type sites, unfortunately it was largely out of date, here are the ones that I found working a couple of weeks ago.


    Fiverr

    Zeerk

    JustaFive

    Dealerr

    TenBux

    Gigbucks

    Gigswood

    GigMe5 - I didn't register with this one, as they didn't specify how much they pay you from any sales and also you need a minimum of $30 to withdraw your cash.

    To be honest, most of these sites are c*** they've been thrown up using the same software by people who are just after making a fast buck and don't care about providing a user friendly site. I would'nt really trust them to pay me. You need to check their minimum payout and how quickly they pay you.

    There is a new site, registered 27th January, which looks a bit better than some, early days and so traffic is low, but you get all the money from a sale, paid into your PayPal account the next day. Has to be the best deal of the lot. I think the guy running it may be genuine, after searching and seeing some comments on digitalpoint forum and him asking questions. The site is:

    Gigtask

    I put an ad on each one and received absolutely zero response, alright probably not the right offering, but I don't think it is an 'easy as falling off a log' type scheme, even if it sounds like it. I'm sure it can work, but would need some serious dedication to do so and I prefer to put that energy into something longer term and more substantial.

    Nice post, always looking for more info on how to promote my fiverr gigs.
    It's definitely easier selling reports rather than services. Fiverr is also a good place to outsource for article writing and from what i see, those people offering those services are getting lots of sales.

      Hi you all.

      Interesting thread.

      I am wondering if I could get some input from someone about whether a particular area of expertise of mine might make for some good fiverr reports or backsells?

      I live in San Diego. Lots of folks would like to move here or at least come visit cheaply but can't. They have no money to do so.

      Well...I can show them how to come here and stay here for as long as they like at almost no cost other than the cost to travel here.

      How?

      By choosing to be homeless in San Diego.

      I am a web developer. When I first came to San Diego I traded work for rent and that went real well for many months but eventually my last landlord decided he didn't need my services anymore (and understandably as I had finished what I was doing for him) and given that I had traded work for rent...well...I had no money for rent so..I became homeless.

      But...that's not the end of the story.

      I now belong to a gym, store a couple of laptops there, still do web development work, eat well, sleep in a tent in safety, and otherwise live here. No rent! No utilities! Away from the snow. Generally great weather while the rest of the country freezes to death.

      There is a lot to learn about how to be homeless...comfortably.

      Is that something that might go over well for a mini-report followed up by selling a much longer report?

      Mind you this is mostly to allow someone to check the area out without paying for expensive hotels and is not for families. A couple would be fine but being homeless with kids is not an option. Single men could do this indefinitely. Women don't take to being homeless too well though so it probably would not be good for a couple long term. Nor is it good for guys who are dating and want to impress the ladies (something I don't care at all about at this point in my life).

      I can write not only a how-to but I can make it funny and can also write very well.

      If this is not a good topic...there are other topics at which I am near expert if not an outright expert but I thought this one might make for a new and interesting topic that is not run of the mill and was curious as to what you all thought.

      Thanks.

      Carlos

        Hey Carlos, it's all in how you market it. If you say, "I will teach you how to be homeless for $5" I'm not sure anyone will buy it. On the other hand, if you say something like, "I will show you how to live rent-free in any major city anywhere in the world indefinitely" then you might have a shot.

        Guys, it's all in the benefits. Sell people on the BENEFITS of your reports. Make catchy, outrageous claims. That's what gets people noticed on Fiverr.

      Heya good folks! =)

      Sorry for being a tad of a stranger lately - Fiverr has been keeping me busy, amongst other things. If you have asked me for a PM and I didn't get to you yet, my sincere apologies. I will get to you as quick as I can - but you can use the social links here to find me elsewhere as well - Facebook, Skype, etc.

      Couple of things I wanted to bring up....

      On the topic of sharing contact info in delivered work - honestly, if you set yourself up right - you won't need to worry about that. I try to direct traffic to email me in Fiverr before ordering. Why? So I have the opportunity to gently "steer" the buyer away from Fiverr and into my own control.

      How do I do this, you ask?

      Simple. Here's a few of my tricks:

      1. In the gig instructions, make yourself sound busy. Ask people to drop you a note in Fiverr to share details of their gig request and to inquire about your availability. Not only does this open the door for you to re-direct them out of Fiverr, it also protects you when (yes, when!) you get busier.

      2. When you get the email from the buyer, respond genuinely and answer their questions honestly. Then, in the last paragraph, say this: "I have attached info for you to discuss further, if you prefer." Notice I did not solicit external contact - I left it up to the buyer. I did not use any trigger words that Fiverr would censor, either.

      3. In the attachment, include your name, your email, your Skype or IM info, your website/blog and your PayPal email address. I bolded the last part as a subliminal hint to the buyer that they can also pay you by PayPal.

      You will be surprised how many people willingly leave Fiverr to deal with you directly. You will also be surprised at how many of these people have other, bigger projects in the wings you could help out with. Most of them know that $5 is not worth your gig, that they should pay you more - and quite a few will! They will even ask you to name your own price.

      I know some of you have pointed out other sites, which are not as popular as Fiverr, but still get decent traffic. I will throw another one out there:

      UpHype.com

      If there are any skeptics reading this thread, thinking it is not possible to make more than $5 on a single gig, let me throw yet another plug your way:

      UpHype, I met a gentleman 3 months ago who needed some editing done. We exchanged messages, and I got him outside of UpHype - an $8 gig. Just last week, he contacted me again to make his order: a $500 book edit and $50 for 3 promo articles for his book.

      I don't tell these stories to brag. That is not my intent. I tell them to inspire folks to make good use of sites like Fiverr - and UpHype. Just because other sites are smaller, doesn't mean there are not some big fish out there. I say, go get 'em. my fellow Warriors!

      Cheers,
      Brian

      You could try asking for someone's e-mail so you can send them the file, but Fiverr has it's own delivery system, so you really don't need the person's e-mail to deliver. I would offer a bonus report if they sign up for it.

    Thanks for the information. Fiverr really works and I'm earning money from it. Just post your gigs and do our work. Though $5 is just small but it's not bad at all.

      Oh - one more thing - fiverr takes $1 and paypal charges you when you flip the money over - so fiverr is like $3.93 ish?

        You're absolutely right. This is why it's so crucial with Fiverr that you only offer gigs that take you no more than 5-10 minutes to fulfill, so that even at this low rate you'd be making $20+ per hour.

        This is also why Russ has repeatedly mentioned UPSELLS and CREATING A LIST.

        What if you sold 10 Gigs making $3.93 each and then had one upsell which paid you $40? What if 3 of those ten elected to join your list for the bonus report and you were able to offer them additional information which led to another $40 sale?

        What if you multiplied the preceding paragraph 100 times?

        Suddenly you have made $11,930 plus built a list of 300 confirmed buyers in your market.

        The majority of the profit is not in the initial sale, it is in your marketing after the initial sale.

        (Or at least that is how I interpret Russ and Paul's comments.)

      I literally have not TOUCHED my Fiverr account for a month and I'm still getting sales every day. It's getting annoying, actually. :-)

      Hi, I've been writing....just finished a 3-page report for $5.....I love the testimonials..........but I really like this idea of selling information and doing something really well only once!

      Cheers,

    This is good info, Russ. It really does sound doable although I'm not sure how far into it a complete newbie will go. The listing building is a great idea but how many newbies are really going to follow up with other offers?

    A newbie could easily be tempted to just stick with the up-front sales. The more experienced folks will plan out the back-end offers.

    Okay I confess I entered this thread because I had disappointing experience on Fiver but I can see that some of the techniques bigbrian and ruffino probably make sense. I like to keep an open mind about such things, but also have the need to tell you that it can be quite time consuming. here's the story of my one and only gig:

    I offer a service, which could be time intensive, however I have access to proprietary software (created for a job) so I can offer a service and simply enter info into a data base to provide the info requested. So its' not time consuming.

    After a month I get one gig. As typical, the user interface is non intuitive and no one explains if I have to keep logging into Fiver to get gigs or will Fiver just notify me? I assume the latter, as otherwise why would anyone do this? So I get a message about 2 days after X mas telling me I am late for my first job order. So naturally two questions arise:

    1) why did you not notify me sooner
    2) why are you telling me this order is still outstanding?

    After several back and forth emails it turns out that the customer either made a re offer or Fiver reset the time period or something. i never did get a real answer (most of the resonses sounded like bots) and so anyhow it turns out I can still do the task in two days (I think I offered a 3 day turnaround).

    The interface where you are supposed to log on and manage your tasks is also non intuitive and the messages dont have time stamps or something about them made the set of messages confusing. And there was supposed to be something to click on but couldnt find it. It was a mess.

    So I plug in the data and generate the info and send it out to the client. Then I get another message from Fiver telling me the project is late. I dont understand how the hell that happened But it turns out that the client has still not indicated that the task was finished and we are simply waiting on the acceptance email from the client. Finally he sends his acceptance and I guess I made the sale. I never did check m paypal account.

    ANyhow the initial set of emals back and forth with Fiver probably wasted two hours time. And then there was the issue of trying to figure out the non intuitive interface so figure another hour there at least. Then there was more confusion at the end.

    At the same time. I attempted to send another seller an email message which the interface unmistakeably said I could do. I tried over and over to send emails to sellers hoping to see if I could get their services, but I kept getting some insane message. I forget what it was..I emailed Fiver askign what the hell is going on. They said it was probably a problem with my browser.. Whatever.

    So good luck navigating the interface, maybe try to google that. ANd also good luck dealing with messages from robots, it's almost as bad as trying to get answer out of Velma or whatever her name is on google, although that admittedly is worse.

    I guess the main issue I have is that i was so worried I was going to effup the first taks that I didnt want to fail. And so I went into panic mode asking why I wasnt informed initially about this order. And I never got a straight answer why i wasnt told on dec 23 when the order was sent. Naturally I sent out furious emails and I got stupid responses. I guess it finally worked but the time wasted was incredible.

    PS Brians suggestion to get out of the FIver loop does make a whole lot of sense, hopefully you guys can make money out of that..

    JobsFor10.com - is a "micro-job marketplace" where sellers list services that they will complete for $5, $10, or $20 bucks...would be nice to be able to sell 2 or 3 reports for $10 - $20 bucks!

    Really nice idea. It's sorta what I did back when I quit my job and got into IM. I was fresh and raw. The only thing that worked for me was gig sites.

    Here's a little secret I learned though. Find a popular, easy, and simple gig on fiverr, copypasta it to multiple fiverr-like sites like MultiTaskr, GigBucks, and Zeerk and charge $10-$15. When it sells, just go order on fiverr and pocket your cash for being the middle man.

    Worked like a charm for me!
