    Hey guys, just wanted to post my experiences with Fiverr. I joined one month ago yesterday, and have made $100 with one gig (actually two gigs with slight variation). I just wanted to post my success so hopefully some people who are struggling making their first amounts of money online are inspired to start using Fiverr and start making money.

    I'm not going to tell you my niche, sorry. But i can tell you that you you sir, are an internet marketer. You are registering for Fiverr to make money, and the way you make money is through your different IM services. Offer those services to other IMers who are too lazy to do them themselves.

    Seriously, you read all the eBooks and rehashed crap about Fiverr, but the most important thing to take from those books is the fact that you need to offer a service that takes x amount of time, and 60 mins divided by x MUST be a reasonable hourly wage.

    For example, my gig takes about 10 to 20 mins to do. This is pretty reasonable, i am making $15 to $30 an hour with my gig. Pick something worth your time, so you can make some good money.

    My next point is something I want you guys to help me out with. Yesterday I Google searched my gig, and someone else's gig came up as the FIRST result on Google. Hmm. That made me think, what is this guy doing that I'm not. He must have links from different sites pointing to his gig. Really, your fiverr advertisement is just like any other advertisement. Some people will find your gig, but if you put a little bit of work on getting some traffic to your gig, that's when "word of mouth" referrals and lots of commissions for you start coming in.

    So with this I leave you with a few questions. How much are you making a month with Fiverr? Are you doing anything to *SEO* your gig? If you're not making money on Fiverr, why the *blam* not?

    I love it I bought like 39 gigs off there in the last three weeks...

    So for I have got quality work...

    May have bought one from OP...

    I'm one of the lazy ones like you said...

    No I just have been covered up and it fills a void for me at a cheap price...

    I'm still looking for a good SEO to take care of my site full time...

    Thanks a million,

    And have a blessed one...

    I did like your post.

    I'm glad you made $100 in a month (think secretly that it should have taken you an hour)

    But think your an idiot for neglecting the people in front of you!

    Yep, your telling us about your fiverr gig, and guess what. Many of us would be your customers.... But you just stated that while you are willing to share your services (niche) with the wonderful folks on fiverr (alexa 1605.... very popular site) you are NOT willing to share your services with us. (BHW Alexa 561, and you know we are trying to promote our sites etc.)

    Good luck to you!

    Pretty sure while you were busy making $100, you probably lost $1000.00

    :)

    Maybe he's just trying to avoid his gig/niche to be saturated. Most of us are marketers here, unlike with Fiverr.

    If he can offer his service to us, then he could have just made a thread in the Services section.

    Maybe, but I've had 14 jobs done on fiverr over the last 6 months (I'm one member. how many are on this site?) that's what? $70.00 budget? Yep...

    I've also done about 14 jobs on BHW here..... That's about $1000.00

    I'm just one person.... Do the math....

    I'm not dissing either you or the OP, I'm glad he made some cash online.
    I just hate seeing people miss out...

    I made $506.00 today and I was kinda pissed off about it.

    There's more money online than you guys are grabbing.... TAKE IT!!!!

    There are guys on this forum who make what I make in a month in a day!
    Those guys didn't settle for $5.00


    I want the people around me to succeed! I want to share ideas with people like YOU!
