    Hello there!

    So recently I got a bunch of PMs about how I make money with Fiverr. I noticed that a lot of users here at BHW don't like Fiverr and everything, and I get it. As I mentioned in another thread, I wouldn't buy a damn thing on Fiverr. Aside from the fact I can do most of that stuff myself, I just wouldn't because the quality of work and amount of scammers on there is ridiculous.

    However, Fiverr absolutely CAN be a tremendous resource for those looking to make extra money from home. I myself have seen a substantial rise in my numbers over the last 6 months and now Fiverr easily makes me anywhere from $200-$400/week. Not retirement money, but certainly a decent source of income to add to my revenue streams.

    So with that said, let me share what I shared with a few others and I hope this helps.

    Now, here's the thing about Fiverr; just like any other business it will take time, patience, and work.

    I didn't get to where I am now with it over night, in fact, it took like almost 2 years. That's partially because I didn't dedicate so much time to it until recently and I likely could be doing better if I promoted my gigs right, got more reviews, etc.

    The thing about Fiverr is finding what YOU can do, that doesn't take that much time, and yields a decent return.

    For example; one of my primary gigs is Flyer Distribution. It's so beyond easy. Customers will have me either create their flyers OR print/distribute them. Sometimes they will mail me the flyers instead of me printing them. Whatever. Now, one of my more recent orders was for 1000 flyers distributed in Chicago, USA. I do not live anywhere near Chicago. How do I do it? Simple. I quote the customer for 1000 flyers distributed for $500, which is per my standard fee. So he'll pay $500 of which I'll get $400 due to the Fiverr fee. Okay. So now I go on Craigslist in the Chicago area or something and throw up an Ad for someone to distribute flyers in that area. I tell them that it's about 30 minutes to an hour of work for say $50. You can make it $100 if you have to. You specifically mention that the distributor won't get paid until he sends you pictures of completed work. Once he does that, I pay the distributor like $50 and for doing next to nothing, I just profited $350. And that's one gig and one idea.

    The key is to think outside of the box. Think about what you can do and think about ways to automate or make it a simple business. By utilizing the internet, I can distribute flyers for anyone, anywhere, and make a decent profit off all orders. I have a bunch of other gigs too and this is only one idea of mine, but you get the point.

    The second key really is to get reviews. I can only imagine what my income from Fiverr would look like if I bought reviews or had friends do them for me. I honest to God haven't though (didn't wanna spend the money) and have taken slower than most might because I've relied on legitimate reviews. All of my reviews are great (which is huge and another key) and that's how you build up. Now, eventually, as I get more reviews, whenever someone searches Fiverr for Flyer Distribution, they'll see my gig. And likely order it too.

    So if you're just starting out there or have been there but no success, remember these key points:

    * Think outside the box. Think of gigs and ways to accomplish them that most haven't OR think of gigs that can be done with small bits of help from outside sources (otherwise known as outsourcing). If you think outside the box and think of what others aren't doing, or a spin on what they are, you will find success.

    * REVIEWS. The reason I get so many orders is because I have a great rating, many positive reviews, and lots of completed orders. As I mentioned, I actually have been White Hat as hell with my reviews, but if I ever straight up paid for reviews or had friends do it? Omg. I'd be worlds ahead of where I am now.


    * Patience. A steady weekly stream isn't going to happen overnight. It takes time and patience.

    * Buyer Requests. For those who don't know much about Fiverr, there are buyer requests, and you can place 10 a day (although if you do it smart, due to time zone differences, you can do like 10 in the early morning when you wake up and 10 at night). You absolutely need to hit your quota every time. If you don't even inquire, it's like letting potential money just walk away. I'll never forget responding to a buyer request at 3am one day and that customer would place an order for $300. He would go on to re-order my services (at the same price) 3 more times. The income and good reviews from that one customer was huge, obviously.


    * Automation. As I've already mentioned really and as most of you IMs out there know, we're looking for systems of automation. That flyer distribution example is just one of many that I have and is so beyond easy, even the newest of newbs could do it. It's just a matter of creative thinking and utilizing all resources provided to us!


    Thanks for reading my post and I'll be posting methods of making extra money from home, via Fiverr or other sources, periodically here on BHW. I absolutely love this site and am pissed I pretty much just found it. I'll be more than happy to help answer any questions you guys might have and/or help you the best I can.

    I hope this helps and I hope to continue learning and growing here on BHW!

    Well, traditionally we're doing flyers. We're posting them up at various locations and sometimes specific locations. For example, one customer requested having them posted on buses and trains. Another wanted them up at places that sell used cars. The distributor needs to take pictures of completed work in one way or another. Either of the work posted up (like on cars, stores, whatever) or of himself literally passing them out. Regardless, they need to submit at least 5-10 pics of completed work.

    Gotcha, my first assumption with flyers was posting them in people's mail boxes. Probably because of house much comes through mine!

    LoL, one question - may be someone can help me. Till aprox 6 months ago I had 12-18 orders per day then I went in vacation and turned on "vacantion mode" after that when I came back all my gigs fell under the ground and I have only 3-8 views per day, aprox 1-2 orders per week...what happened? someone can help me?
    If think for fiverr my profile it doesn't care anymore how many positive reviews I have, or if all my raiting are at 100%

    p.s. - I never bought any review because I didn't had any budget to invest when I started

    Yeah, occasionally that can be a little cost, but I live near a UPS store and to print them out is really cheap. Other times, I'll literally send the flyer to the distributor online and have them print it out, depending on how many. 9/10 of my orders request the same exact paper size and material, just a standard full page flyer on regular printer paper. I can't even remember the last time it was something different honestly. I see your point on the cost though, but still, its an extremely low cost on what could still net you a decent profit.

    Honestly the only thing I can think of is that going on vacation mode like slows you down ranking wise or drops you because others are catching up? I'm not entirely sure, but I would say that I've never gone on vacation mode, like even on a vacation lol. I've always left it online and never tinkered with that for that very reason. My advice would be to keep doing what you're doing, work on growing your business, and as you complete more orders you'll rise up again and quick because buyers will see your rating and lots of great reviews. So keep your head up homie! Just keep working on it and you'll be good.
