How to make REAL money on fiverr? I have experience...

13 replies
Hey,

I've tested some gigs on fiverr before and it was interesting, made a few bucks but it took a lot of work.

Does anyone know how (or rather, what type) of gigs can be executed more quickly for cash?

Marketing seems easy enough.

    Many of the SEO backlink building gigs on Fiverr involve gig providers simply using software. They produce a report and send to client. In many cases, this doesn't take more a few minutes of ACTUAL WORK since the software does the work. Other gigs involve selling information you work to compile ONCE and you sell MANY times over.

      This about sums it up.

      That is the inherent problem with taking cheap jobs - you either compete with cutthroat competition or you find a way to automate your own tasks to make it worth your time. The third, and more entrepreneurial, option would be to have your Fiverr products be components of greater products that you can upsell or at least have qualified buyers to approach with.

        Sounds about right.

        If you look, there are many fiverr accounts with THOUSANDS of reviews/completed orders.

        At 4 bucks a pop that's not bad.

        I wouldn't use it as my only source of income but I was trying to figure out how to crack the market.

        My experience with it thus far has been mixed, but I also haven't used it in years.

        You guys have had some interesting replies. Thank you!

      True. Xrumer, Scrapebox, SEnuke and the like. I've also seen people selling internet marketing info products like how to get your adsense account and how to increase your adsense profits. As long as there's very little work involve, those $5s can add up well enough to add to your monthly income.

    There is NO way to make REAL MONEY on Fiverrr.

    All you can do is make peanuts.

    The cost of living has escalated in the last couple of years, what can you get with 4 bucks? And how many Gigs can you expect to get in a day?

    Worse still, you may be doing very well and one of your competitors may order a Gig from you and then leave a bad remark saying your work is lousy and then –

    Other people will see it and think you are bad.

    Worse still…when you complain to the Gods of Fiverr, they will do nothing to help you – they value customers more than sellers.

    All the best. Regards.

      Not true. Read my post above. I described almost ALL the SEO / link gigs on Fiverr. A few of those guys make BANK. Scrapebox services, link wheel services, etc. Now, if your question is whether these services are worth buying after Google Penguin, that's another question altogether. Regardless, automated SEO link services on Fiverr are some of the most popular and profitable services offered on Fiverr.

  • What amazes me is that the 4 dollars you make is less every day, but I think it's probably good as a lead gen if you can upsell from the gig. Just guessing I haven't tried it, I'm just amaze on all the stuff people do for 4 dollars.

    Aside from making your own gigs, you can also use Fiverr to avail services and make money out of it. For instance, you can buy gigs from people offering video creation. You can use that video to post on Youtube, to drive traffic to your website, expose your offers, and boost your online earnings. If you will only focus on making gigs, then yes, your earnings are limited. You have to be creative and always think out of the box to see how you can make use of the available gigs from fiverr, to maximize your earnings.

    The big money is in reselling stuff you get at Fiverr from topnotch, reliable, high-quality providers and selling them elsewhere. I am sure people are making bank getting logos from the top designers at Fiverr and entering them at logo and design contest sites. Your cost is $5 with FREE REVISIONS. If you win a contest, you get $250 or more. Good enough spread. The downside is simple: make sure you find a logo provider at Fiverr who can deliver within TIGHT deadlines.

    One of the best uses of fiverr that hasn't been mentioned in the thread so far is for people who sell some type of service at a much higher price that they need to generate testimonials for. When people pay $5 for a high quality service you sell on your own site for $500, it can be easy to generate rave reviews. Those can then be added to the website, and are legitimate opinions about your service. Nobody needs to know the reviewers only paid 1/100th the value.

    Hi,

    Hmmmm....if they are paying you $5 or maybe a few more - based on what I heard(could be wrong) - for each gig I cannot see how you would make real money on Fiverr. At least if you are trying to live a normal life.

    Focus on building relationships with influential people in your niche via forums like these, blogs and social networks. These folks will teach you all you need to know - just make sure to help them too - so you can make hundreds, thousands, or even millions online.....really, you can do it.....over years in the case of millions.....instead of trying to get $5 at a pop for the service that you offer.

    All the best!

      Indeed, this is probably the best advice that you could get with regards to Fiverr.
