The major difference between popular freelance marketplaces like Upwork and Fiverr is the process of working with clients.
Working with clients on Upwork means constantly pitching for new jobs. So new work doesn’t happen in the background without your input — you have to be proactively on the hunt for new work when you want it.
Fiverr is a completely different story.
With Fiverr, you essentially productive your service via Gigs.
Each Gig describes a specific deliverable you will provide in exchange for a set price, starting with the words, “I will…”
You can offer different packages that involve bare-bones offerings, up to “the works”. You can also offer Gig extras that allow people to customize your offering with related services they’ll benefit from.
But the best part about Fiverr is that because of the way Gigs are set up, clients are empowered to make purchases without even talking to you.
This means that if your Gig is the right fit for their needs, at the right time, you can be making sales while you sleep.
Undoubtedly, from time to time, people will still get in touch with questions or to ask for custom deliverables. Using Fiverr doesn’t mean that you can do away with business development completely, though it will certainly help you streamline the process.
At the end of the day, if you want to make more money as a freelancer, reducing the time you spend actively pitching for jobs means that you have more time available to do the work.
Fiverr is a marketplace where anyone can sign up and sell services from $5
That can be anything from…
How To Earn Money On Fiverr – The Step-By-Step Process to Start
So now I’ve shown you what I do and what I use to do it, now all you need to be how to make money on Fiverr yourself.
Just follow the steps below and you will learn how to make money on Fiverr easily-
Step 1 – Practice
First of all, I bought Video Maker FX and spent time practicing making videos of all different types with it.
It took me a couple of weeks of playing but I soon got the hang of being able to make videos quickly.
Step 2 – Create Fiverr Gig
Once I knew I could produce awesome videos I created my Fiverr Gig.
I kept the title short and simple – “I will Create a Professional Whiteboard Animation Video In 24hours for $5.”
Here are some other titles I have used that did well-
I will create an AMAZING Whiteboard Animation Video For $5
I will create a PROFESSIONAL Whiteboard Doodle Video For $5
I will create an Eye CATCHY Animation Video For $5
Feel free to play around – you get the idea!
Step 3 – Creating Your Gig Image
If you do a search for similar gigs you will notice some of them have better images than others that really stand out.
Do some searches and take some inspiration from the gig images that really stand out to you.
Once you have done that you can use PicFont.com to create your Fiverr gig image, if you really want to stand out you can also hire someone on Fiverr to do it!
Step 4 – Writing Your Gigs Description
Your description is also a very important part to your gig that you need to get right.
Just like with the images I also search around Fiverr and look at what the other top sellers are doing and use their descriptions as inspiration.
Whatever you do, don’t copy their descriptions or you will get banned. Just use them as inspiration and come up with your own unique description.
Step 5 – Tags/Keywords
One of the most important parts of your gig is setting up the tags and keywords.
A lot of people don’t realize this but having your gig tagged correctly is very important to the ranking of your gig in Fiverr search results.
Take a look at the picture above and you will see the tags I used and also set your gig delivery duration to “1 DAY”.
Step 6 – Video-fying Your Gig
You also have the option of adding a video to your gig to make it stand out. Again this helps to boost rankings and sales so pay attention.
I just used Video Maker FX to make a catchy video for my gig, it doesn’t need to be anything special but shows off the service as well.
