Earn Money on Fiverr.com
Yep. I did it. I didn’t think it was possible. At least, I didn’t think it would happen to me.
I put a couple of gigs up for people to buy on Fiverr.com.
There’s a lot of junk on there like, “I’ll make my puppet sing to you for $5.” Okay, that’s not so bad. But I wouldn’t pay for that.
I knew that I had to put something up that was somewhat legit and something that I could actually deliver too. What did I decide on?
“I’ll design a twitter background for you for $5.”
“I’ll edit your video and add titles and music for $5.”
I posted the twitter gig what seems like days before the new twitter was released. The old twitter design allowed a lot more room for a spiffy background (especially on my 13”).
Every now and then I would have to log in because they send you threatening emails about inactivity. That’s fair I guess. They want gigs that are real.
Out of the blue, I got a message that someone bought my twitter background gig. They gave me files and a mockup. Whoa. I edited it, shot it back to them, and it was done. Just like that.
It looks like the $5 turns into $4 after fees or whatever. I can’t help but be excited though. In fact, I’ve now had two gigs purchased—both for twitter.
*Update, I've made over $40 on Fiverr. Business was going so great I had to deactivate my gig until I could get caught up. It's a lot of fun and provides great experience.
