If you have not been to Fiverr lately you are really missing out. The site has grown tremendously over the past three years. It is one of the top hundred viewed websites in the world. You better believe people are making money there. People are also getting work done for a fraction of the cost over other freelance sites. When Fiverr started out, products were listed at $5 only. Now, just over half of all transactions on the website are $10 to $100. How many do you think you can do in an hour? It would not take long for it to add up to a nice long term income.
People do everything from singing to editing on Fiverr. There isn’t much you can not find on Fiverr. You need to tune into your strengths and see what you have to offer. One would be surprised at the number of people who will pay for things that you are good at. All new sellers start out at level one. At this level you are not allowed to sell your gigs for more than $5. To get your feet wet and gain more customers, you can add bonuses such as a quick turn around time or an enhanced product offering. This will help get you noticed on the site. Fiverr keeps $1.00 for five dollar gigs. If the buyer is not satisfied with the work they can visit the resolution center and not have to pay for it. The best way to avoid this is to provide top notch customer satisfaction.
So you may be asking, what can I sell? You would be well served by finding something that has not been over done or over marketed. If there is a lot of competition for the product, chances of you getting lost in the crowd are very good. After you have decided what to sell, be sure to add a picture and a video. Both of these gives buyers more confidence in what you are selling. You would not buy something sight unseen, would you? Most other people would not either, so be sure to include samples of your work. Be prepared to market yourself, get involved in the Fiverr forum and social networks. You would be surprised how posting your gigs on social sites and forums will help your gigs to succeed.
Now that you have a product to sell and are marketing yourself, the orders are flooding in. What you do in this next step can determine your success or failure. On Fiverr you are basically in business for yourself, so customer relations are your job. Be sure to adhere to the golden rule with customer relations, do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Try to get in the customer’s head and deal with the problem. Having outstanding customer service will get you good reviews thus resulting in more sales. We all know what more sales means, more money in your pocket. Bottom line, the customer is always right, make them happy.
Always be sure to under promise and over deliver. If you have stated that your delivery time is one day, make sure you adhere to that. Fiverr keeps an exact measure of the time it takes you to do the gig. If it goes over, the customer is likely to give you negative feedback. Negative feedback is something you will want to avoid at all costs, just make sure you do not have to deal with it in the first place.
Finally, never give up. You may not see results at first, sometimes it takes time. But you know what they say, “no pain, no gain”. Make that your creed and you will make it in a big way. Stay focused on what you are doing and success will come. There are many people making a nice full time income off of Fiverr and quietly doing so. There is no reason why you can not do the same.
