Is It Possible To Make Money With Fiverr?

by ericparker

Fiverr may be fun and quirky, but it's possible to make money with Fiverr -- real money -- and it's possible to find some great deals too.

When people who don’t know much about Fiverr talk about the site, they call it fun and quirky -- and they perhaps even marvel at why people are willing to offer their time and products for only $5.

Those who use the site regularly, however, know that it’s possible to make money with Fiverr and purchase some great things from the site as well.

Fiverr is a website that allows people to offer their services or products for $5. Each offering is called a gig, and buyers can buy these gigs through the site, then communicate with sellers to get customized products, professional services, crafts and many other things.

You can offer just about any kind of product or service on Fiverr -- even if you have no credentials and experience -- and buyers can decide whether to buy your gigs based on your listing text, you photos, pre-sale messages and the feedback of previous buyers of the gig.

Is The Site Really Of Value?

But what can someone offer for $5 that’s really of value?

Actually, the offerings on the site are deep and varied. Sellers offer logo design services, handmade greeting cards, WordPress assistance, writing services and even specialized services that are hard to find elsewhere -- like this gig for a customized website analysis written by a real person, not a software program, for $5.

A quick look around the site will probably convince you how useful the site can be to buyers, especially if you’re busy and want to outsource some tasks to others who can perhaps perform them more quickly and with greater skill than you can.

Even if you’re sold on the site for making purchases, however do you see yet how it’s possible for those who offer services to make money with Fiverr?

Yes, It’s Possible To Make Money With Fiverr

To make money with Fiverr, you have to be creative in the kinds of gigs you offer and make sure you don’t offer more than you can realistically provide for the price. Then, by combining a number of service offerings with a few gigs that sell pre-made products and services, you can make some serious money.

I detail seven pieces of advice related to success on Fiverr in another article called How To Make Money With Fiverr: Seven Tips. Briefly, these are the seven tips I present there:

1. Don't offer more than you're willing to deliver.
2. Offer upgrades every chance you get.
3. Build repeat business into your gigs.
4. Write great gigs.
5. Offer related gigs to increase income.
6. Offer some gigs that require very little work from you to round out your offerings.
7. Offer a thank-you gig to increase earnings.

Fiverr recently posted a report indicating that for 14 percent of Fiverr users, the site is their primary source of income. But how could anyone make a full-time living $5 at a time? It's possible when you follow these seven pieces of advice.

Fiverr isn’t for everyone, of course, but those who can quickly provide meaningful services and find cheap sources for unique products may find a market for what they offer on Fiverr.
