Just Joined Fiverr - Any Tips?

20 replies
I just signed up to Fiverr, does anyone have any tips on how I can best utilise this to make some small pocket money?

I'm pretty good at coding: C#, HTML, CSS (if this counts as a language), PHP, VB.net and ASP.net but I'm not really sure what people are looking for!

I would probably get some people ordering my services if I offer to make a WordPress theme, but that seems a lot of work for just $5, $1 of which Fiverr takes so $4 which is only £2.50!

Any ideas?

    • You'll do well on Fiverr. People who offer small coding jobs generally do. Plus you have the satisfaction of knowing you helped someone out.

      A WP install may not get you many sales, though. The last time I counted, there were over 3,000 WP install gigs.

    If you're good at coding - I see many people successfully selling gigs offering to 'solve a Wordpress problem' and other gigs like that.

    Take a look at the Fiverr categories that you're interested in and see what kind of gigs are selling well that you could possibly do also. If you find one, your best chance of being successful is to add a small twist to it. For example, give them something extra that the other gigs aren't offering.

    Also, when you create a gig, make sure you upload a video for your gig. Gigs with video's do much better than those without.

    Good luck.

    Thanks
    Regarding creating a video, what kind of video could I create for a coding job? I wouldn't have thought anyone would want to see a video of me typing some code!

    I make good money selling ebooks on Fiverr.

    I wrote a post here on the WF on how I made $900 selling one ebook on Fiverr and you can read it by clicking on the link below:

    Ive just dipped my toe into Fiverr myself. I offer YouTube Backgrounds, Facebook Timeline Covers etc. Something that should be taking me 20-30 mins per item after designing some basic templates to work from is suddenly taking 1 hr plus per gig due to people on their ordering my gigs but not knowing how to install them. One gig must have had 2 hours of my time in customer service. I created videos selling my services, and im going to create some more to explain what to do with these graphics so that i don't have to keep answering questions. You need to make this cost effective, and time is money.

    The main thing for me is the leads it can generate. A simple design of a YouTube background can lead to a full website outside Fiverr, so im always looking to upsell and over-deliver on my gigs to get those leads. And definitely upload a video explaining your gig. Hope this helps.

      If you search this forum you will find tons of tips on using Fiverr effectively. Doing coding you should do really great there. It does take time to pay you, however, from what I've read here it can take up to 14 days to get your money.

    Coding isn't a good option in fiverr because you only get 4$ and it's not worth it, you should find something else.

      Getting paid $4 for something that can often only take 5 minutes work is pretty darn good if you ask me.

      And depending on what country you reside, complete a couple of these a day and you can be on a fairly healthy income.

        Coding project often take more than 5 minutes to complete and yes it's a very good income if u live in a poor country but if u live in the US and take 4$ for like 25 minutes work that's nothing.

          I agree with this, ive been spending too long doing these designs. But ive been looking at it as a way of bringing in leads. So even tho im earning just £2.50 per background, i have a chance of getting a full website outside Fiverr. Ill see how it goes but its good experience in the IM world and on how to conduct business in general. Id stick at it to improve your skills if you can spare the time.

    Thanks everyone for the info. It looks like you could make money on Fiverr, but I would only get £2.50 GBP for my efforts which isn't brilliant. I may look into it to build a reputation more than anything, I mean we've all got to start somewhere, right?

    I joined Fiverr about a month ago and tried the whole "selling gigs" thing... I attempted to sell ebooks as a sniper method (meaning - one problem, one solution). Those tend to do well if you target the right problems people are looking to solve. However, I have not had any luck myself with Fiverr. I was looking to make extra side cash to pay for my link building outsourcing expenses. Alas, I will have to try again at a different point in time!
