Here is a ridiculously simple method that I have been using to make money on the side. It involves Fiverr.
Fiverr is truly a great platform to make some extra money. Its especially great for newbies who want to get started. You can use the money to buy your first domain name or pay for your hosting or invest it in any other thing that is necessary to start your online business.
Usually when you create a gig on Fiverr, it get lost amongst hundreds and thousands of other gigs. So, titles of your gigs and also the kind of service you offer plays a big role in your success. Offer something that is a bit different than other people's offer. I found out that usually services that give immediate results to the buyer, are the ones that do much better.
Here are a few services I am offering right now on Fiverr that anyone can use to make money on Fiverr. These service dont really require any skills or knowledge. I'll give you every info you need, just copy what I do and you will make some extra money.
Lets get to it:
Manual article submission to dofollow instant approval article directories
I dont have to explain the dofollow part obviously, but why instant approvals? Well, as I said, services that give immediate results attract more buyers. Lost of webmasters and internet marketers, dont wanna wait for their article to be approved, so if you can give them instant approval, you are in demand.
1- I spent a few hours searching on the internet finding dofollow instant approval article directories. I found about 40-50 of them.
2- I registered with these directories.
3- Made a folder in my favorite and named it instant approvals. Then I used my quick manual submission method that I explained in another thread on WF.... to group 7-8 sites in each sub-folder, so I can open 7-8 sites with one click, when I want to submit articles to them. (its all about doing the gig as fast as you can)
4- Registered on Fiverr and put up an ad, offering to manually submit 1 article to 20 dofollow instant approval directories.
5- when I get the order, I simply open each sub-folder(favorite- instant approval) whcih opens 7-8 sites at a time, then copy-paste the title, body, bio and keywords. It takes only seconds to do that. You can also use form filling tools like RoboForm to do that. But I find it much faster to do it copy pasting.
The first day I got 2 orders. So, instead of submitting to 20 sites, I submitted to 25 sites, to ensure that I do get good feedback and I did. That was a few weeks ago and since then I have been getting a 1-2 orders a day. Not to mention I got 2 clients who I work with outside of Fiverr (they give me 20-30 article submission a month or so).
Of course, you have to give report to your buyers. Since these directories are instant approvals, as soon as you publish the article, simply copy the link to the live article and save as a file. When submission is done, send file as report top the buyer.
Manual site submission to fast approval web directories
1- I spent a few hours searching on the internet finding web directories with fast approval process.
2- Made a folder in my favorite and named it fast approval web directories. Then I followed the same method I used for the above method (step 3) to group sites in sub folders for fast submission.
3- Since these directories send you an email (with the link to the page where the approved site is listed) when the site is approved, I registered a new email address only for this gig, so when I do get approval emails from these sites, I dont have to sort thorugh hundreds f emails to find them. I can open my inbox and get to them right away.
4- Put up and ad on Fiverr offering to manually submit 1 site to 25 fast approval directories.
5- When I get the order, I simply open each sub-folder (favorite- fast approval web directories) whcih opens 7-8 sites at a time. For this, I use roboform to submit quickly, since there are less data with site submission, roboform doesn't slow down. So it actually is faster to submit with RF than copy pasting.
6- When I receive the approval emails, I put all the links in a not pad file and send it as report to the buyer.
Posting ads on craigslist
Lots of people who live in other countries beside US, dont have phone verified accounts and can not post ads on CL. So, they are willing to pay people with phone verified accounts to post ads for them on CL. I live in US and av had my CL phone verified account for a a few years now. There was my next gig.
1- Simply put up an ad offering to post up to 5 ads on CL under my account. Obviously you can offer a lower or higher number of ads to post. I though 5 would be fair number. I mean, it only takes a few minutes to post ads on CL.
2- When I get an order, I simply copy-paste the title and the body of the ad.
3- CL immediately send you an email containing the link to your live ad. Save those links on a file and send as report to the buyer.
I started this gig a few days ago and I already got a few orders and feedbacks.
Keep in mind that not every gig is going to make you money. I have about 8-9 gigs on fiver and out of those only a few are making money (the article submission being the top one). So, dont be discouraged. Yes, almost any service you can think of is being offered on Fiverr. But be creative, you can offer the same service with a little extra thing. Its that little extra thing that make a gig stand out from hundred and thousands of similar gigs.
Use your forum signatures to promote your gigs. You can even make a WSO here on WF and advertise your services to warrior and give them a deal (maybe a few extra submission or what have you).
Listen, I haven't mad thousands of dollars with these ads. But, I am making consistent money everyday, even if its just $15-$20 a day. Plus, completing each of these order takes me no more than 10-15 minutes. And if you are a newbie struggling. this can be your way out.
Again, most people may not be able to make thousands of dollars with Fiverr, but if you are willing to do some work, you can easily make some extra cash. Also, dont just bookmark this thread and say " I will get back to it"! No, do it now! Go to fiverr and see what you can offer. I mean, you can do the same things I do, knowing that It works. Yes, you can use the exact same gigs I am offering or do some research and see what else you can come up with.
I tried to cover any detail I could remember. But if there is anything I missed, please feel free to ask. I hope this will be useful especially for newbies who are struggling to make their first dollar online without sending any money or having any experience or skills.
