    The past two hours I have been writing three articles. I just registered for Fiverr and I got my first order 5 minutes after I posted. I got so exited but I just spent the past 2 hours writing 300 word articles, three of them to be exact.

    I wanted to ask the BHW community a question. Is this a good deal too offer on Fiverr?
    3 articles
    200+ words
    keyword optimized:eek:

    If you weren't doing anything before you got the gigs that made more money, I don't see why it can be a bad deal.

    I would actually go more for 2 300 word articles but I am sure that you will get a lot of orders if you go either way.

    If this is your first fiverr gig then continue offering the three articles of 200 words util you get a decent number of positive feedback. Once you establish yourself a decent writer on fiverr change your service to 2 articles or even one 500 words article.

    This is 100% right imo. I'm writing on Fiverr right now too. I'm currently doing 400-500 words for 2 articles. (total 800-900 words).

    I'm at 20+ positive reviews and orders keep coming. Soon I will cut off the 2 articles and make it 1. I plan to still offer my original costumers my original service out of gratitude however.

    Those are all great suggestions. Feedback score is the key to being able to charge what you are worth.

    What you're offering is good, once it takes off, you can offer less. That's what I did and now I'm the #1 Article provider on Fiverr. Just work hard, you will be successful.

    I just put a gig on a week ago for 500 word articles, but I haven't got any orders yet. I figured they'd fly in but I was wrong. I used to have an art related gig that got so many orders I couldn't keep up anymore.

    I have a gig on fiverr, two actually
    one is for 500 word article-600,
    one is for 250 word technical article

    I have made like 250 bucks in 3 months and I have like 40 feedbacks
    Fiverr is not a godsend, the orders sometimes roll in sometimes they stop for weeks
