    Hi guys!

    I need to make at least $300 in 30 days time. I see 2 ways to do it.

    I found a day job where I will earn $320 a month. It's not a full day job but I really really hate it.
    So I can do that

    OR

    I can work my butt off writing articles on fiverr. The amount of work is not a problem but I am scared that I won't get that many offers with a brand new gig.

    So here is my question to you: is it realistic to make $300 on fiverr with a completely new gig without any reviews?

    There are many sites which are similar to Fiverr. Why can't you try on all of them? Yes, you can earn $300 per month using all of them. There are many FB pages like best fiverr gigs where you can post your gig. There is also a forum in Fiverr where you can answer the best questions. Don't keep on only Fiverr try for some other also.
    All the best.. :)

    Its unlikely you will get 75 gigs in 2 weeks with a brand new account as their is plenty of competition
    Remember fiverr holds back payments for at least 14 day ans more after the job is completed

    If you need the money so badly take the real job and put your gig on fiverr, allow 5 days for delivery
    maybe in a few months you can build up a regular custom base

    It's really difficult but not impossible.. If you really need to earn the $300, go for the day job to be on the safe side!

    If I was you, I would take a part time job, and do my very best to make some internet presence in my free time.
    I doubt you will earn that much on Fiverr, especially as you are inexperienced with it. So, get a job and use your free time to work on IM.

    Good luck!

    join iwriter, or join a skype group here. What this group does is that they order each other's gigs and rate them. This way your rating will get increasede and thus more orders....more money

    S,its takes much time to get orders from fiverr now, if you get the orders also, it takes time to withdraw your amount,there are many more out of fiverr , expand your knowledge out of a circle surely you achieve your goal.

    With Wishes,

    No, It's not realistic at all to make 300$ in just 30 days if you don't believe in miracles. Fiverr is a highly saturated market nowadays and you have to work really hard to drive that much customers to your gig.

    It is pretty hard if you need money get a job that gives you a bit of free time to manage your fiverr gigs.
    You won`t make immediately but in time you will.

    If you're a native English speaker then its good to go with article writing gig. Otherwise you won't get enough response at the end. I'm with fiverr for more than 3 years. It is great for those who is best or good in a specific service. Another thing it's very difficult to get your gigs in the search result. As day by day, Fiverr's search engine becoming worsen. I prefer you to go with the job. And take fiverr as a passive or leisure time earning. Then it will be a more wise decision.... Any way wishing you all the best.. :) with your decision. Thanks

    Opinions are split here over your question. What to do ???

    I would advise you to get started with the Article Writing venture and give it a test run.

    Nothing ventured . . . nothing gained.

    Nothing happens . . . until you do something.

    Keep in mind that there are many more micro jobs sites apart from Fiverr . . . and you
    can post your gigs to as many as you choose.

    On top of that, there is a wealth of article directories where you can post your articles.

    Give it a go . . . $100, $200, $300, . . . $400, $500 - how can you tell, if you don't get started.

    I agree that there are many sites besides fiver. But will need some time first to maintain and build a website to be able to grab on projects. Cheers :)

    it's not easy to make $300 per month on fiverr. I tried hard and only made $100 for my 1st month

    But it all depend on services that you offer on fiverr

    Welli would suggest start your job as well fiverr and get into some fiverr excahnge groups to get some early sales rating and then you can think about getting some good income from fiveer.And once you have good sale and rep you can leave your job and carry on with fiverr and other IM activities.

    The crux of the matter is always: speed between payment and withdrawal. Fiverr: 21 days until you can withdraw, then it will go to PayPal. If you need this money converted from PayPal to cash/bank than it is even worse. PP takes another 2 weeks to your Bank. If you have Payoneer linked to Fiverr than it's only the 21 days as you can go immediately to an ATM.

    No matter what you decide or start, always think about this cycle: payment-withdrawal. It should be the shortest possible, otherwise you work your butt off and are still screwed.

    On an Index from 1-10, where 10 is: cash immediately available (like in minutes), I would say:

    - Local ads / local flee market / selling of used stuff to friend/neighbor/garage sale: solid 10.
    In this category are also: offer to mow the lawn > job done, payment in cash, give language lessons or other kind of help for struggling students, walking dogs, distributing fliers, doing local SEO/websites > if you ask for advance payments, etc.

    - Selling on Fiverr, Ebay, Clickbank, etc: 3
    Beware: some affiliate networks take as much as 60 days to pay. I consider them a 2 on the index.

    What is a 1? I did a commissioning job for a big Fortune 100 corporation and the assholes only pay their supplier base between 90 and 120 days. Never again. They can drown in their own problems, I don't care if their building was in flames, I would not come to rescue if they don't pay in advance.

    Unless you setup a website offering some kind of service and put a PayPal button on it that pays directly to you (but you will still need to sell something that PayPal doesn't consider "high risk", which will make them to withhold your funds).

    Take care, let us know what you decided or if you found another good solution.

    At fiverr you also have to calculate that the payouts are quite late. so if you need the 300$ in 4 weeks its not possible to have them on the account.

    long term you can make 300 a month. but not in 4 weeks on the account.
