How Fiverr Offers Creative Ways To Make Money

If you need to make extra money, is a great place to pick up some extra cash. This is especially true if you are a creative person. Fiverr is a website that connects people looking to put their talents to work to earn money with people that need to get small tasks done. The payment per gig is pretty modest, hence the Fiverr name (derived from $5), but earnings can add up quickly, if one lands numerous gigs. The gigs tend to be rather small tasks, so completing them and banking money for each completed gig can be done rather quickly.

Fiverr breaks down the gigs that users are trying to fill by the following categories:

  • Graphics & Design
  • Online Marketing
  • Writing & Translation
  • Video & Animation
  • Music & Audio
  • Programming & Tech
  • Gifts
  • Advertising
  • Business
  • Lifestyle
  • Fun & Bizarre
  • Other

How Making Money Using Fiverr Works

To make money using Fiverr, you need to sign up for Fiverr, then fill out their easy to use gig submission form offering your service. Include an accurate description of the product or service you are offering for $5 to make your gig offer easy to understand and a picture, so it stands out.

The price is set at $5 per gig, so keep it simple. You obviously cannot offer to write a book for $5, but you can offer to write a 300 word blog post. That is the essence of Fiverr, small gigs that make sense at the $5 price level. The provider of the gig actually nets $4, as Fiverr keep $1 of the $5 earned. If there are extra services you would like to provide for an additional cost above $5, you need to list them in your gig description. For example, your $5 gig offer can provide a buyer a basic service, such as a basic drawing, while additional services, such as providing the drawing in a specialized format or a larger size, may cost more than $5. In this way, Fiverr can be an excellent way to generate leads for projects that pay a lot more than just $4.

Once you receive an order for your services through your Fiverr gig posting, you need to make sure that you follow up and complete the task in a timely manner. You also need to ensure that what you provide them is of high quality and meets the expectations set in your gig description. The people that hire you to complete a gig will post reviews once you provide them the final product or service. To be successful on a site such as Fiverr, you have to make sure you receive positive reviews and feedback, so future prospective clients will see you in a good light and have no hesitation about hiring you.

Fiverr is a good site for selling creative products and services. You can sell written material, videos, photography, art, or crafts, just about any creative item. You can also sell services, such as a short song, a voice over for a video, proofreading, or a review. The opportunities and ways to make money using Fiverr are endless; you just have to have a provide a product or service that is worth $5 to someone.

Remember: Your Time Is Money On Fiverr

One important thing to keep in mind when setting up gig advertisements on Fiverr is how much you will get paid for the product or service you are offering and how much time it will take. Since Fiverr only pays $4 per completed gig, you have to ensure that the gig will not take a long time, such as a whole hour. Who wants to make $4 per hour? Try to come up with gigs that can be done in ten or fifteen minutes, so you can make $16 to $20 per hour. Also, try to offer additional premium services for additional money. It is your time, make sure whatever you are offering through Fiverr is worth your time and effort.

Of course, always do excellent work to receive positive reviews, gain repeat customers, and acquire referrals. That way, you will eventually receive organic requests for your Fiverr gigs, as your reputation as someone who does high quality work draws in buyers for your goods and services.
