If you haven’t heard about fiverr.com then you need to check it out. It’s a place where thousands of people are making money by doing small jobs that others don’t want to do. I’ve personally made money there selling backlinks, writing articles, and just plain doing work that makes other’s lives easier. How can you make money on Fiverr?
Find A Service People Need
One of the biggest mistakes people make when trying to make money online in general is offering products or services that people don’t actually want or need. There’s nothing harder than trying to convince someone that they need something in order to sell it to them. If they already need it then you just present your offer to them and they’ll buy it if it fits their needs. It’s as simple as that. So the first thing you should do is go on Fiverr and start searching around for gigs that are already selling. If it’s already selling that means there’s a demand for it. But you’re already at a disadvantage. The people already selling have the advantage of positive reviews and a proven history. How are you going to beat them?
Offer a Better Service
If someone is offering 1,000 back links for $5 then you should offer 2,000. If someone is writing 400-word articles for $5 then you should write 500-word articles for the same price. Why should you do this? You need to make choosing you a no-brainer for the customer. Of course they’re going to pick you, even though they’re taking the risk that you don’t have many reviews, they’re going to choose you because they’re getting more for their money.
Setup Your Gig
Then get your gig setup on Fiverr. One of the most important things you’ll need to do is include a video with your listing. You want to make a short video with you on it explaining what your gig is all about. It doesn’t need to be a super-quality video, it just needs to have you on it being yourself.
The most important part of your Fiverr gig will be the service that you give to your customers. One bad review can severely affect your sales, so especially in the beginning you need to go above and beyond by giving the best service possible to your customers. Actually, this is something that you’ll need to continue on with in the future, but in the beginning it’s even more important.
Raising Your Price
Now, you can’t actually raise your price with Fiverr, but you can reduce the work you’ll do for $5. Once you have a lot of reviews you can reduce from 2,000 down to 1,000 back links (if we’re using the back links example), or go from 500-words down to 400-words. Just make sure that you maintain the same level of service and your customers will keep coming back for more.
