Earn Money on

Updated on January 15, 2012

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

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.
