Using Fiverr To Make $100+ A Month

50 replies
Fiverr has been a great source of income! If that is you know how to properly use it... I personally have made over $400 to date!

This is my guide to making money on Fiverr with gigs that won't take you hours to complete when someone makes an order, but also in high demand.

First of all I want to make it clear that SEO/Advertising gigs are some of the most popular gigs on the entire site. This is where the real money is made. SO how do we get in on that money?

1. The first thing you want to do is think of services that you can provide that webmasters don't want to have to deal with, such as creating backlinks, search engine submission, directory submission, you get the idea....

2. All these things can be automated with great software either from this site or anywhere else on the internet! So go get a great piece of free or paid software that performs an in demand service and make a gig to promote that service!

3. I'm sure that you can see that the possibilities with this are endless! You can have as many gigs as you want, performing services that you have to do basically no work to provide because of technology!

4. So, make a number of gigs, 5-10, and make sure you have all the software needed. Then PROMOTE PROMOTE PROMOTE!! I don't care what you use whether it's Twitter, Facebook, another make money online forum or whatever! Just get your gigs out to people who would be interested in your service.

5. After many sales and many satisfied customers your gigs and you as a Fiverr seller will build a reputation and you will eventually no longer need to advertise!

Cheers

    You can provide other services non-IM and still make money. I picked the new book from clark howard, a consumer guru. He tells the story of a dude who will spell people's names on the sand where he lives as a gig. He grosses at leat $300 a month doing that.

    Imagine that.

      Yes, or the people who hold up signs underwater with a message or promoting your site. or those who hold up signs in front of famous landmarks like the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lampur.

      There are many, many ways to make money with Fiverr and I would say if you can't even make $100/month doing a few gigs on Fiverr, you are doing it very, very wrong.

      Do as many gigs as possible, if you can. Very few people are going to be able to make $100/day with Fiverr but many, many people can make some decent money on Fiverr, part-time.

        How do I put this politely?
        I don't want to sound like a jerk, but what are we doing talking about ways to make $100 a month? That's less than $4 per day!

        If you know how to build backlinks, seo, directory submission, etc... use these talents to build and grow your own sites...don't trade your time & skill for a measly $5. Use your skills for your own benefit instead of a strangers.

    Yes, Fiverr is a great extra source to make a few bucks and to get new customers. I have made money on Fiverr without even marketing my Gigs. Plus, some of those $5 customers upgraded to higher priced packages at my site!

    Well worth the 2 seconds it took me to setup the gigs.

    If you are doing SEO software gigs, make sure you don't get someone's site banned from Google, by making too many too quickly, or from dodgy spam sites. I make over a hundred a month on Fiverr from my social sharing gigs.

    I make some okay money from Fiverr selling ebooks and doing automated tasks... In fact, I do nothing for it now! Each gig takes 5-10 minutes to complete and I have a VA that checks Fiverr and the clones once a day and completes all of the gigs purchased for $3/hr.

    Very informative post and great for newbies starting out. I have 5 gigs up on fiverr that get an order about once a week. I don't do any work on them and they are all very automated and take me less than 1 minute to complete the order. Its a nice little chunk of change at the end of the month that works almost on autopilot.

    I have to say though I end up spending much more on fiverr gigs than I make lol

      That is the minus point there. I written an article and got paid $4 for my first gig on fiverr. But when i went to withdraw the money, it says that i need to wait for 14 days. Other than that, it is good in case of earning money from it.

    Use fiverr as door to gain new customers, when you complete a gig send them a text doc with your contact promoting services that would like to offer on but can't or better yet wont. Often times you'll find that people who buy from you are willing to keep workig with you even its more than five bucks. I know I have a guy who met through fiverr and we skype to this day, I still use his fiverr gigs but I also use his other more expensive service to because I know his quality. So a little time in the trenches can bring long term business in the end.

    Gigs at Fiverr and other sites like fiverr can be a good way to pay for that expensive SEO software you might not have otherwise been able to afford. I paid for several of Big Mike's Bots (Incansoft) by offering gigs using them for others.

        - I've got a few Fiverr gigs that consistently bring me easy money, delivery in under two minutes, back end sales, and have lead to connections for real work. Nothing like getting paid to produce client leads.

    This is some good info. I actually did a video on how you could make tons of money with Fiverr. I know one guy who has made over $13,000 in just like 5 months from using a facebook strategy. I'm probably going to try it out later on, but the whole point of doing IM is making money while you sleep with no work. Some gigs can't exactly be automated if you have to keep sharing a link or tweeting or whatever it is. And I also assume with those gigs you never get to rest so it turns into another job when you're getting so many orders and have deadlines to reach.

    Here's a better idea for free (it has been sold as WSOs several times).

    Find popular gigs on Fiverr and sell them with a markup at other forums.

    That will net you much more than $100 a month.

    I would like to add more points .

    1. More profit can be made by outsourcing services on fiverr, like create a website, and provide video testimonials and keep pricing on your website $$ for 60 secs. and once you get an order on your website just order the specific gig and thus you get the testi for just $5.

    2. Now a days , intro video is on demand and CEOs are ready to spend $$ for their website's intro video. Reach the CEO's through social networking sites and offer them an intro video for $$ and you will get a good conversion rate. Thus you can make profit here by outsourcing it on fiverr.

    Such method of outsourcing can make you earn $$$$ every month , just explore ideas!!

    You should remember that one of the best strategies for micro job sites is to use it as an intro for gaining new clients. Think of article writing, for instance. If you can write a very good article for $5 that impresses your customer you may be able to offer them other services at a higher price later. Think of it as a relationship building exercise.

    To work out if Fiverr is a good option, try this test:

    i) How long will it take me (on average) to deliver this gig?
    ii) How much will I make on ave per gig (usually $3.98 unless u can upsell regularly)
    ii) How much do I need to make per hour?

    Then do the math...

    Is i x ii > iii?

    Eg, if it takes me 30 mins per gig - then I can do 2 gigs per hour and so make $7.96. If I only need to make $5 per hour (on ave), then this is worthwhile. If I need to make $10ph, its no good!

    I then need to either:

    a) reduce the amount of time I spend per gig (eg use software or outsource)
    b) increase the amount I get per gig (eg upsell)

    Ideally you're either using fiverr as a source of paid lead generation (kind of like a loss leader) or you're onselling the gig to someone else at a higher rate.

    It'd be tough to make decent money just living off fiverr gigs. There's many other easier ways to make money!

    I'm sorry but how is this inspiring for newbies?

    Fiverr is a great source to get jobs done but making serious money from it is impossible. Why would you trade your time for money? Thats not internet marketing that's providing a service. If you're providing a service trust me you may as well get employed and get the benefits too - you're probably earn more than $100 a month

    If you're a newbie and wanting to make good money in this industry it can be done - please don't think you have to resort to working for $4 an hour!

    Remember that when you're providing a service you're trading your time for money. This is NOT the way to have a successful business. And if you do go down this route then the pay needs to be high enough to outsource it - only then can you start making a passive and residual income.

    Yes you only get $4 a gig. Yes They keep $1 when you withdraw and, yes, PP want their tax as well.

    But people who knock Fiverr as a waste of time are not seeing the bigger picture.

    It gets people earning their first dollars online fast. For someone just getting started, $100 in their first month would be a lot better than most *Guroos* achieved if all of the sales letters and videos are to be believed.

    Sales of Fiverr gigs can lead to substantial money from future purchases (upsells) and JV opportunities - whilst still staying within the TOS if you know how.

    I've been on Fiverr for less than a month and I already made 24 dollars. That's equivalent to 6 orders since Fiverr takes a 1 dollar cut from every sale.

    I can see the potential of Fiverr as a huge moneymaker if you have a gig that you can deliver in just a matter of minutes like a list, an ebook, etc..
