How to earn with Fiverr and make some sales

Updated on January 5, 2016

What is Fiverr?

Fiverr is an awesome place to make some money online. Objectively speaking, it's a place to sell freelance services - but it's much more awesome than that. Why? Well you can see all kind of gigs there. (A gig is a service people will do for 5$).

Every gig costs, as you may have noticed, 5$. There are people who buy services - buyers - and people who sell services - sellers.

How do I win with Fiverr?

Remember, I don't win a thing by doing this recommendation. The only thing that makes me want to share this with you is the fact that I know most of you seek a way to earn online. So far, this is the best for me. I've cashed 50$ on my FIRST MONTH!

"How do I start?" - You may ask - well it's pretty simple - find a thing you would like to do. Yeap. that simple, because in Fiverr there are people earning more than 100$ a week dancing with stupid costumes, making testimonial videos and etc... Just be original and creative and don't worry about SEO, in my case I didn't have to wait a week to get my first order!

After you make some sales you can withdraw to Paypal, or buy some gigs yourself... I've been reinvesting the sales money on my several online ventures.

What are Fiverr Levels?

After a sale is completed, your buyers will publicly review your service, so treat them good and donĀ“t insult them with crappy work.

These reviews will affect your gig rating.

Do you think good sellers should have the same perks that bad sellers do? Off course not, good sellers must be rewarded - that's why Fiverr separates people in levels. Levels grant different benefits, so aim for a High Level for maximized earnings.

You can find everything related to these perks here: Fiverr Levels

So, check it out, it will be worth your time!

Fiverr Sales Page: How Does it Work?

So this is my Fiverr sales page, and as you can see it is pretty much everything you need to have your business up and running in an informed manner - what I mean is that you'll always be informed of what client ordered which product, and thus you can also allocate your time accordingly, since some of them may even have the "Extra Fast" extra which speeds up the delivery time.

This can be considered to be your page HQ since you'll be doing most of the stuff through here.

Click one of these orders and a page will appear that will allow you to submit your work or communicate directly with your buyer, just bear in mind you can never give out your contact information or any data that will allow the client to hire you outside Fiverr, as that is against their Terms of Service and you will be banned - conversations are often scanned by employees to detect whether you're having bad conduct or not.

Now, let's proceed to the part that will bring you the biggest smile!

Fiverr Rating: How Do Fiverr Profiles Work?

What I posted on the side of this paragraph is a profile with a very high rating, and as you can see you'll be evaluated by a lot of different factors.

Essentially, you'll want to rack up as many positive reviews as you can - and as the positive reviews grow in number, so does your authority.

With this added authority, you'll get more customers, but remember me telling you that we would talk about getting you that smile? Well look at the photo below:

Fiverr Revenues Example: My Fiverr Story!

As you can see by the photo above, I made quite a bit with Fiverr, and I'm not even a Top-Rated Seller.

For those of you interested in learning more, I can answer all of your questions on the comment section, but basically I offer article writing services and company tagline development.

I'm a level 2 seller and I registered on Fiverr 2 years ago.

It is definitely possible to make good money with Fiverr, and I'm not very invested on it simply because I found other ways that were easier for me, like HubPages were I'm making more than on Fiverr and I have to work less.

Nonetheless, it is definitely worth a shot if you have a special talent like Voice-Overs or Graphic Design, as those seem to give you a lot of money.
