    You win!

    Make sure you ask your buyer to leave feedback for you. Getting that first feedback posted goes a long way toward getting more orders.

    Don't forget to upsell all your Fiverr customers in order to make real money.

      I've heard upselling is where Fiverr sales come in handy, so I'd definitely take this advice!

        Of course, Fiverr should be seen as a source of leads- not as a source of income if you want to make real money.

    Ive just created my first fiverr gig offering some graphical work. Im interested to see how it goes, there is a lot of competition on there for most things to do with IM & web.

      Upselling is the best way to make a lot more money on Fiverr than just selling those small gigs. Pull them in and then upsell all you can. You can make a lot of money that way.

        So if im offering a graphical banner for example, do you mean offer them some web buttons as an extra gig below or do you mean offer them something bigger outside the fiverr site?

          Something bigger outside of Fiverr. For instance, I sold several consultations for prices ranging between $100 - $200 an hour outside of Fiverr.

          I offered one for $5, then warmed them up and did the upsell - got the money within 15 minutes after the conversation was over.

            When you are in a conversation with the buyer, you can't give your phone number, email id or skype details. How come you were able to rope him outside Fiverr ?

      Thanks guys,

      I already offered him to overdeliver the gig in order to leave a review and rate my service !

      I will definitely upsell when the gig will be completed and send a report via attachment !

      Now my concern is to promote my gig in order to take many many orders !

      Right, it's only the first step. You will need more sales to rank up your gig. Offer some extra for your first customers and they definitely will leave the positive feedbacks.

    Congratulations!! Now build up your income by creating more gigs, and also signing up on other gig sites to maximise your income. You can advertise your gigs for more money on other sites and therefore increase your income.

    The more you sell on Fiverr the better your reputation will become and you will get a good rating.

    Encourage people to leave positive feedback to get more customers and more money

    Optimize your gig with key words and ask to some friend to buy your gig in order to get some feedbacks. Fiverr ranking is based on feedbacks, more feeds = better rankings when someone search for your service. Good luck (:

    Well done! It also helps to over deliver or give your customers a free bonus. e.g. a plr ebook. Doing so will get your customers to give you repeat orders and good feedback.

      The usual method is to hide contact information inside a file you deliver.

      Fiverr is getting a lot more strict about removing people who go outside. There's a guy I know who offers an incredible gig: He does a newscast-style interview with you over Skype. It's really slick.

      Fiverr rules of engagement

      It's very popular, but Fiverr recently told him he could no longer ask for Skype details -- which makes it impossible to do the interview. Worse, they demoted him in Levels, so he can't sell Gig Extras as a legal upsell. Discouraging.

    I might as well add it onto this thread seen as i commented on it earlier.

    I TOO have sold my first Fiverr gig tonight, just some graphics for someone but i think ill ramp up the amount of gigs on there. I added a camtasia done vid with me selling the gig and it seems to have worked.

    Congratulations. Don't forget there are ways to get a lot of traffic additional to the traffic hanging around on Fiverr.

    Although you may get many sales from Fiverr alone, there's a lot bigger potential. Just think outside of the box.

    You can start posting on some relevant forums with a link to your gig in the signature, you can do video marketing to get traffic to your Fiverr gigs.

    You can do PPC/PPV.

    Don't wait for the orders and money to come, go out there and start hustling a little

      I did yes, just used camtasia and talked them thro what i was going to do for them whilst showing them an example on the screen. I wrote it all down before hand and practiced it maybe 4 times before i nailed the pitch. It lasted 60 secs but i think that might just be the difference, shows you take the gig seriously for me.
