    Disclaimer: This method requires your own creativity. If you have that, read on.


    This is my first contribution, so bear with me. Here's a method I use on how to make $24+ a day, but can be scaled up. I know it works because, well, I'm doing it. The money you make from this method will depend on your own creativity. It's a method I came up with reading other methods here on BHW and adding my own twist. I say it's noobie friendly because it doesn't require any money to get started, just effort.

    Basically, you find what others are looking for or what they need on Y! Answers and offer those services on Fiverr. People who ask Y! Answers are usually either lazy, desperate, or just plain stup*d. This also means that their wallets are ready to purchase your service that satisfies their needs.

    I'll divide the guide into three parts so it's even easier to understand. Feel free to skip to #3 if you already have #1 or #2:

    1. Building your Y! Answers Reputation
    2. Building your Fiverr Reputation
    3. Monetizing your Y! Answers Traffic through Fiverr.

    1. Building your Y! Answers Reputation

    The first step is to get a level 2 Y! answers account. You can buy these through fiverr or through here on BHW, but I suggest creating a new Yahoo account and build it up yourself. It doesn't take much time.

    Why level 2?
    Level two makes all the URL you post on Y! Answers clickable. Therefore, people will most likely visit the page you posted if they're clickable and they don't need to copy and paste the URL.

    How to get to level 2 fast.
    At level 1, you start with 150 points. You need about 250 points to make your links clickable. At Level 1, you can only answer questions 20 times. Each answer is 2 points, so that's 40 points. You can also vote to get points. Each vote is 1 point and you can vote 25 times a day. In total, you can get 65 a day. That means you can get level 2 in within 2 days. You can start voting here.

    Tips on Answering questions at Level 1.
    Make an effort to give a good answer to the questions. This way your answers can get voted as the best answer and get lvl 2 quicker. Also, don't add any links at this point. Your account could get banned and all your efforts would be wasted.


    2. Building your Fiverr Reputation
    Before you even offer services on Y! Answers, you need to build your reputation on Fiverr first. This way you can get more conversions when people visit the link you posted on Y! Answers. They will trust you more and more likely to buy your gig.

    For this method, I suggest you get to level 1 first. You can either trade gigs with people (shameless ad: I'm one of those people) or pay them to rate your service. You need 10 gigs to get to Level 1.

    Also, here's an ebook you can download that tells you more about making a good fiverr gig.


    3. Monetizing your Y! Answers Traffic through Fiverr.
    Now that you have a Level 2 Y! Answers Account and at least a Level 1 on Fiverr, how do you make money? Well, the idea is you find out what people need or want on Y! Answers and create a gig around that need. In this post, we'll use the keyword "pintrest" since the topic is hot.


    If you go to yahoo answers and search for "Pinterest" you'll see people asking for pinterest invite.

    [​IMG]

    You can then create a gig on fiver with something like "I will PERSONALLY invite you on Pinterest within 30 minutes" or if you want to separate yourself from others, you can say "I will PERSONALLY invite you on Pinterest and tell my 5,000 followers to follow you". Since you already have a level 1 fiverr account, you can even add an "extra". You can add something like "I will get you 100+ followers guaranteed". This is one example. Use your creativity on this one.

    Once you've created this gig, you can post the link on your answer to the question about pinterest invites. Of course, don't just put the link, say something like "I got my invite from (insert fiverr gig link here) and got it in less than 10 mins. Hope that helps! xoxo Jeanie" This is so that your answer won't be reported as spam

    Another tip is to cloak your fiverr gig link. This is not necessary, but just an added precaution. I use a 301 redirect, but you can use URL shorteners like goo.gl or bit.ly if you don't have your own website.


    But people will saturate this method! This won't work.
    This is why i added my disclaimer at the begging of the thread. There are a lots of keywords/needs/wants that you can build a gig around. You just have to be creative with how and what you offer on fiverr.

    If you are really struggling, here's another tip on finding people wanting stuff:
    Instead of searching for "pinterest", search for phrases like "how to", "help with", "want to", "i want", "where to buy", etc. The results from these searches are almost always from people ready to buy something. Your gig would look something like "I will show you HOW TO (insert asker's need here) for $5".

    To make this method even easier, you can bookmark these searches. Go to the y!answers search page and then type in the phrases above. Then bookmark those pages on your web browser so you can just click those to easily search those keywords.

    [​IMG]

    And that's it! You can scale this up by offering more gigs or searching for more keywords. It's up to you.

    This is too much work! Is this really worth it?
    I don't have to convince you to do this since I know it's working for me. Here's one that really took off from this method:

    [​IMG]

    It can be done. You just have to take action. This method doesn't require you to invest any money, so you have no excuse. Now go satisfy those needs make money!

    Great method, but it is going to be a bit hard as in your method you say you dont need any money to get started, but clearly we need money for the Fiverr account or gigs to be promoted. Anyway the money needed to invest will not be much and your method can really work. Reps and thanks given.

    what are you talking about. both yahoo and fiverr have free registration and you're using y! answers to promote the gig.

    read well before you comment bro.

    I think he meant promoting the gig and increasing the rating will cost money. For example, you would need to pay someone to buy your gig in order to increase the rating.

    The promotion is on only to get you to Fiverr Level 1 and to add "trust" to your gig, but it's not really required for this method.

    It is a nice method I hope that it could be scaled so we can make more income. It also could be implemented on forums and blogs not only Y answers :)

    people laugh at fiverr but some of those guys doing SEO on there are clearing 6 figures monthly revenue on the front-end alone
