Simple Ways to Earn Big with!

Updated on April 28, 2014

How I Am Making My Own Steady Income on Fiverr

The first time I heard of Fiverr, I thought I wouldn't be able to make money of it. But now when I see orders coming in, I feel it can be a platform you can use to make a nice income online provided you spend some time on your task.

If you haven't yet heard of, then let me do the introduction. is a site where you can buy or sell services worth $5. You can find some amazing deals over there. People are selling awesome graphics, banners, logos, SEO services and more for an awesome price of $5. This is great news for buyers but how about sellers? Will they be able to make some money using The answer is YES! I know of many people who are making $1000 per month on Fiverr by offering simple services. I say "simple" because they are experts enough to consider the task as simple -- but these very skills are in huge demand when it comes to people who don't possess these skills.

For example, a person who isn't that great with Photoshop will look forward to outsourcing that job to experts. On Fiverr, there are people who are offering to help you out with creating stunning logos, banners, headers for a nominal price of $5. For them, creating a simple banner is not much of a fuss and hardly needs time. These simple logos can be created in a matter of minutes by these designers. Imagine completing many of such orders in a day for a whole month. You get a nice income to boast of!

Another gig you can try out is by writing articles. You can get all the info you need by doing a thorough research on the Web. If you are going to create simple websites, you can use PLR articles for content. I would totally recommend Tiffany Dow if you are on the search for high quality PLR articles.

A Screenshot From My Fiverr Account

As you can see, I got a revenue of $144 since I joined Fiverr. I'm not boasting of 1000s here -- but this was earned when I was not so serious about doing Fiverr gigs. I had not promoted the gig and I feel with a little promotion and more orders, I too will be able to reach that task of $1000/month from Fiverr.

What Type of Gigs Should You Promote?

* Usually I have seen that only those type of gigs which are useful for others (namely, services) do well on Fiverr.

* Create a gig which you can complete off easily. This way you can take up more orders in a day. More orders -> More money -> Chance of you reaching that $1000/month landmark is more!

* Check out the featured or popular gigs on Maybe you can try a similar gig if you are good at it?

How I Am Making Money on Fiverr

How am I making money on Fiverr?

*By starting a gig which I'm an expert at (and maybe you are too!).

*By finishing my gigs on time - Repeat customers are very very important! This is why you should create a great first impression. I have got a list of repeat customers who love my work and are coming back for more.

*By responding to any customer queries ASAP - You have to make your customer feel important no matter how much the price of your service is! Some people on Fiverr provide crappy customer service because they think they need not work too hard for a service so cheap. This is stupid on their part! By creating a strong client list on Fiverr, you can get customers who will be willing to pay you more once you move out of Fiverr to create a bigger business.

      Yes, you do have to do a very good job on fiverr! Even though it is only $5, some buyers will act as if it is $500, ask for free advice, want you to submit complete working plans before they order your gig, etc. I have totally re-done videos for customers who wanted me to add things that were not even part of the original agreement or gig description! So even though there is no commute involved, you will still have to work very hard if you want to succeed on fiverr!

      I am offering various article writing services on Fiverr.. I have earned nearly $900 till now. At the same time I hired several people from Fiverr. Almost Everybody worked really good. Moreover, You can post negative feedback on Fiverr if any seller makes you unhappy with his services.EWven I got my money back from Fiverr since a seller couldn't deliver the work positively. I would recommend others who want to buy gigs from Fiverr, they should always check the customer's feedback before ordering any gig. they should be very specific about what they exactly want from the seller and discuss about this before placing the order. At least I do every time I hire anybody on fivver. It helps me a lot to identify the best seller

      I've used fiver many times, and unfortunately had enough bad experiences that I discontinued. I used it mostly for articles to be written. Maybe I expected to much. I have thought about trying some of the other services though, maybe I'll head over there and check out some of them.

      I was crushing Fiverr for a little while just offering services that I could do in my spare time fairly quickly for some extra cash. I soon found myself in a predicament to where I no longer had any spare time for myself.

      If you create the gig they will come.

      Interesting perspective on Fiverr. I have been there for about 10 months now and have made over $300. My initial mistake there was offering video editing services without a time limit or provision for downloading the video files.This cost me in bandwidth and time. I have since learned from this and the orders are coming in steadily.It is worth a shot since all you have to do is sit and wait for orders to come in if you do not want to promote your gigs. Good write up, I will check out your report

      @Casey like @divacratus is mentioning you can indeed offer everything. I noticed from your profile that you are a programmer and specilized in security ... mayeb you can write someone a code snippet, a little tool, or from a security perspective maybe configure a firewall. You name it - there is a lot of demand to outsource these little tasks

      @Casey - You can offer any type of service at Fiverr. Analyze your own special skills and start a gig related to that. It can be anything like writing, making videos, tweeting someone's webpage... anything at all!

      I personally won't be using fiverr to earn money as I believe my time is better spent elsewhere (and I suck at many of the things I think you could make money quickly with on it), but I continuously use it for buying various services. It rocks for that

      I think this is interesting, but probably takes a lot more technical skill than I have.
