    Just a quick tip to Guys who want to make serious money from fiverr

    Find products that you can upsell on the site - whatever it is

    Because people will become your long term customer often when you do a good gig for them.

    I just sold an ebook to a guy last week for $49 on how to get facebook fans Fast.

    There is alot of potential business on there.


    Enjoy

    So how do you advertise on fiverr for it then ?
    "I will.. sent you my email adress so we can do business for 5 dollars" ?

    you sell a product on fiverr for $5 but the product must also have the ability to be upselled


    I will sell you 5 beans for $5

    if you want more I can do it but it will cost more etc

    when they message you

    "I can give you 200 beans for $200 - email me"

    DOn't SELL BEANS LOLLLLLLLLL

    It's a fundamental business concept. Offer something at a low price (in this case $5) to get your foot in the door, and once you've won their trust, hit them with your REAL moneyspinner. ALWAYS have an upsell in mind, and you can multiply your profits many times over.

    It's the same concept as a "loss leader". Big retail stores (supermarkets, department stores etc) will often sell some essential product at such a ridiculously low price that they can't possibly make a profit on it - they may even make a small loss... BUT it gets you through their doors, where according to the theory you will end up buying a bunch of other stuff on which there is a HUGE profit margin.

    So yeah - back to Fiverr. Let's say you sell an ebook for $5 on "How To Teach Your Goldfish Kung Fu".

    When somebody buys it, along with the five dollar ebook, you send them a killer offer: "Visit my website for 50% off my intensive Goldfish Kung Fu Video Course. RRP $99... yours for only $49"

    TA-DAAAA... You've just turned a $5 sale into a $54 sale. (Not every time, of course, but you see how it works.)

    Then when they've bought that, you can sell them Goldfish Karate Suits, Goldfish Martial Arts Insurance... etc. The possibilities are endless. :D
