How I Made $900 On Fiverr Selling One eBook

81 replies
I have been having success over the past 2 months selling one of my ebooks on Fiverr.

I'm sure most of you are looking to make more that just $4 per ebook sale, but the key with Fiverr is backend sales, by offering another one of your ebooks or a package of your ebooks at a specail price inside the copy of the ebook you are selling on Fiverr you will end up making some sales off Fiverr with a bigger profit.

You also want to build a mailing list of buyers to send other offers to, so what you do is when a person buys your ebook on Fiverr is you send them to a download page that has them opt-in by providing you thier name and email address in order for them to download the ebook they bought from you on Fiverr and this will allow you to email your buyers and offer them another one of your ebooks and make even bigger profits again off Fiverr.

These methods have worked very well for me over the past 2 months, as I have made over $900 in sales selling only one ebook on Fiverr.

To your success,

Martin

    I have an ebook about 'making a high figure income' but it's not selling on fiverr, they are more into purchasing my link building gigs

    What is the niche of your ebook?

    Sounds good, always thought of doing something with fiverr but haven't got round to it as of yet!

    $900 is good going, plus that list is getting longer and longer all the time!

    Nice share.

    Wow Martin, that is great work indeed! Thanks for sharing your method on this.

    I had actually thought of doing something to this effect. I had thought of this layout:

    1) Create my website with an in depth ebook on a niche for $17 or $27 (just hypothetical right now)
    2) Create a Fiverr gig with a mini ebook of some content and some teaser content for the In Depth book for step 1 above.
    3) Promote the Fiverr gig and sell that ebook. The ebook would contain some links within it. It would also contain a link at the end of the ebook to my opt in page which would be part of my website of step 1.
    4) They could then join the opt in page and then wind up in the backend of the site where they can buy the ebook for a discounted rate per the advertisement within my ebook.

    Still brainstorming but indeed, there is money to be made on Fiverr. Nice to know that you're well on your way of doing it already! Congratulations! Keep us posted on your continued success!

    I have a friend who's doing well on Fiverr.

    He's offering a backlinking service for $5 then offering an ebook about how he builds link efficiently in the backend for $20. He's not the 'smartest' internet marketing -- I can't even consider him an internet marketer at all (I have other reasons...) -- he's just doing it for some extra bucks

    Backend sales are the key to success. A $5,000 lesson: "Make money off the customer you already have" and you'll be successful in internet marketing. Honestly, all you need is 10 good customers and you can make well over a living

    Most of my $10,000+ customers came from people who purchased my $7 - $30 information 'kits'.

  • You also want to build a mailing list of buyers to send other offers to, so what you do is when a person buys your ebook on Fiverr is you send them to a download page that has them opt-in by providing you thier name and email address in order for them to download the ebook they bought from you on Fiverr

    All it takes is one buyer reporting you and your account will be frozen. This is strictly against Fiverr's TOS. They are cracking down now on people doing this, most likely the ones who come here whining about how they didn't do anything wrong...

    You cannot require an email address. The fact that you're doing this outside Fiverr's messaging system means nothing.

      To get around the TOS issue, maybe you could say for free updates subscribe me, or something like that, at the top of the page and then lower down have the option to download anyway.

        Interesting idea, I would have never thought of that.

        It's a great way to get people on your list and still make a few bucks, with the possibility of upsells as well.

        If you are offering something of definite real value for only $5, then you are sure to find a lot of interested prospects.

        Thanks for the tip.

      I have to agree with fLufF about requiring the purchaser of your ebook to give their name and email address BEFORE you allow them to download their purchase. After all, they have already paid in good faith and completed their end of the deal.

      Personally, I resent it when I buy something and am required to give my email information before I can access it. Creates ill will in my opinion.

      If it is against Fiverr's TOS as fLufF says, it is probably only a matter of time before you get a customer who gets agitated about your purchase/download requirement and complains to Fiverr.

      Just my opinion.

        A few months ago I couldn't have agreed more. I have actually condemned the practice before myself.

        Here is the problem though ad why I actually agree with the practice now...

        If you are capturing someone's email at the time of sale... "The PayPal" email address. Guess what? A vast majority... and I do mean a vast majority of people don't even check the email PayPal is linked to. It isn't their primary email and they look at it like maybe once a month.

        Start building lists of thousands of PayPal email addresses like a lot of us have done. You will see exactly what I am talking about.

        This is also the exact reason why you see people use things like:

        "Register Your product before you download"
        "You must register your purchase to help us fight fraud (if you capture the IP then which you do in most autoresponders, this is actually a reasonable part of fraud prevention)" The IP address is one of the reasons I have won 80% of claims and chargebacks. Because the scammer is too lazy or dumb to change their IP address first.

        Anyway...

        The thing is, that is actually how it has been done over the past several years.

        How many pieces of software have you downloaded or installed that required you to register before it worked? Or it quit working if you didn't after 30 days?

        The way it is going right now.. if you are only collecting the PayPal email at purchase. Heck... 30% of your list is useless for contacting people. Even contacting them about updates is useless. They won't see the email forever.

        EDIT: Congrats on the strategy working for the OP to.

      It is an effective strategy, and one I'm aware of since I bought a fiverr wso recently.

      Fiverr can be used for lead gen, and up sells, yes... but it does go against their TOS...

      I suspect there's quite a lot of people doing this on fiverr... it's the same as doing a small cash in hand job... I mean, who pays tax on something like this... I'm not saying it's right, but, it goes on... a lot.

      I have a project I'm working on, similar to fiverr, and I'll be faced with the same problems... I know there's going to be off site dealing, there's no way to stop it all.

      I think, rather than going after people... and shutting down their accounts, fiverr needs to make it more attractive for people, not to do this.

      Off the top of my head, lower their commission, increase the amount you can charge for a gig, there is a gig extra feature... but only available to top sellers... make this available to all.

      Fiverr's great... it's saved me a ton in outsourcing... and it's only the tip of the iceberg... I'm bringing something that will really help save people money and make people money.

      I plan on keeping my commission low, and have more pricing options... $5, $10, $15 +$20... possibly more.

      Basicly, if you give people more flexibility, they're less likely to abuse the system...

    ahhh bit it is possible to add the bonus tip in the squeeze page. Get XXX if you subscribe and an "no thank you" for just the core product.

    I am sure if the wording was different it would be ok with the TOS.

      I don't think that you have the right to withhold purchases unless buyers subscribe. If I bought something and was forced to subscribe to get it I would ask for my money back rather than take part in forced subscription tactics. You are lucky that nobody has complained to Fiverr yet...

      I would offer a second free package on the download page for opt in and not force them.

    Hey Martin,

    Great suggestions, I have been building list with Fiverr as well. I have one question for you: Do you send your buyers traffic to the opt-in page right after they place an order without giving them the e-book they bought right away? I mean, do you first require them to sign up in order to receive the e-book they bought?

    Regards,

    I think it's ok to to have people subscribe only if the links are placed in the book, and the customer chooses to click the links and sign up for someone's list.

    If someone is forced to subscribe to a list after paying for a product - the seller is asking for trouble

    Great share... There's tons of money to be made on fiverr and related sites. A suggestion: Try putting your ebook on some other micro gig sites and you may be able to increase your sales by 10-50%+ depending on how many you post it on and if they're good ones with traffic.

      I just wanted to clear things up and exsplain how I do things on and off Fiverr.

      What I'm doing is after a person buys my ebook off Fiverr is I'm sending them to the download page for the ebook they ordered and at the top of the download page is a special offer for a free money making report and an opt-in for my mailing list and for them to get my free report, so the person buying my ebook from Fiverr dosn't have to opt-in to get the ebook they ordered, just if they want the free report.

      Now once they opt-in they are sent an email by autoresponder that provides them with the link to the free report and and a link to my money making website were I have a few other money making ebooks for sale and the hope is to get customers off Fiverr and make bigger profits.

      Now, also what I do at least once a month is send everyone on my mailing list a limited time special offer that is only good for say 3 days and give them say 50% to 75% off one of my ebooks if they order in the next 3 days and this helps to increase my sales and make money off Fiverr.

      Well I hope this clears things up and helps other with making money on and off Fiverr.

      To your success,

      Martin

          You can do this in other regards, but not with a fiverr gig.
          When someone orders from fiver... they are paying fiverr not you. Then fiverr credits your account.

      Fiverr does allow you to direct people to your YouTube account for video samples and portfolios. Now, when I send prospects to my YouTube channel, they're automatically going to get the link to my website. If they call me or contact me through my website for other services, I'm sure not going to report that! That's giving away money!

      In that respect, the potential buyer "might" be violating Fiverr's TOS but I'm not. I did have a buyer call me; he said he just couldn't see only paying me $5 or $10 for the gig or ordering several multiples to get done what he needed to get done. Since I have my YouTube link listed for portfolio purposes, he went to my website, got my phone number and called.

      A $20 fiverr gig turned into a $270 quote that he very happily paid upon invoicing.

      And the other day I just earned my Level #1 so now I can add my upgrade "Extras" to my gigs easily.

      Now if I could just do what the OP is doing with ebooks, that would be even better! :rolleyes:

    Nice. I wasn't sure about selling eBooks on Fiverr because I've seen some pretty decent one's that I've recognized not getting any hits or anything. I suppose if you get $5 for every sale and you sell hundreds, you'll get decent profit but the eBook would have to be something special. But the idea is good, never thought of that.

    Yes this is a well exercised tactic on fiverr. I'm glad you have had success with it. Last year I purchased around 10 ebooks on fiverr and every single one had affiliate links in the copy as well as text bit.ly links in txt. files in the zip file I downloaded. Those links would direct to another 'great' deal or product. I might have bought one of them.

    I am about to pull the trigger on an aggressive list building campaign and one of my sources to get people to my squeeze page will be fiverr. have a couple of methods worked out - one of which is similar to yours.

    Thanks for sharing !

    @Martin,

    That is a great idea and I must say that until you posted the second post explaining a little bit, I was a little worried with what the others were saying.

    I must say that it is sad that people have responded to this thread with only a thanks. I think people forget to push the "thanks" button. I removed my signature off this post to show that I am not responding to get my sig read.

    I bought a product based on Fiver and I really haven't given it any more thought. This shows me how little I am paying attention to business at large.

    I did press the thanks button to show my appreciation.

    John

      Yeah, it's amazing how "lucky" people get when they work. :rolleyes:

      To the OP: Thank you for the post.

    I would send them to a Opt-in page after payment then from there I would send to a OTO page as well while they are still in buy mode. So it would say visit yoursite.com to download your product, then they optin. Instead of sending them to a thank you page send them to OTO page for higher priced ebook or whatever. You'll get way more sales up front and still be able to get more backend sales from your ebook links.

    Well done. I tried selling ebooks on fiverr for a while, but couldn't seem to make any sales. I'm not great at writing sales stuff, so that may have had something to do with it, but I love fiverr because you can get some great services for $5 that you would pay a lot more elsewhere. I still have gigs on Fiverr and did have some success with an article writing gig, but it was taking up too much of my time when I should have been doing coursework and I was only getting $4 for 400-600 words, often more.

    This sounds like a very smart strategy. Thanks for sharing and well done -- $900 for one ebook isn't bad at all

    Great share! Some good information there!

    Always collect emails and put them in a excel document (or any spreadsheet). Try and categorize them!
