    This is my first post to giving back to you all.

    I saw an ad for Fiverr that said 5 bucks for a logo. I thought to myself you got to be f'in kidding me. I am a graphic designer and there is no way in hell that I charge 5 bucks for a full logo branding.

    I began reading blogs and dissecting this website. I believe if you learn... you grow. I love to teach young people there are other ways to creating an income or side hustle than going to an 8-5 job working for a boss-man as a slave. So this is a little for myself but really it is for young people that work at McDonald's.

    I researched and tested to see if I could follow some of the formulas for cracking Fiverr that I have seen on here. After it is all said and done after my first 30 days I have made 100 bucks. It equates to $4.00 dollars a day.

    Right now, I have 15 gigs and try to put a new one up every other day.

    When I began, I thought to myself what am I good at? I have a background in communication both verbally and visually. Design and reviews are a majority of my gigs. I don't design tho on fiverr, but I will put your webpage into a mock-up.

    Here are my 10 tips:

    1. If your service can be delivered in 1 day, then try to make your gig an "Express Gig". If your gig gets "Express" status, you will get more orders.

    2. Keep it simple. Make sure that your gigs are simple for you to handle. Less than 5 minutes.

    3. 25 or more gigs. Even if you are only selling one gig the others will promote that one. Like a funnel to the diamond gig.

    4. Promote your gigs through social networks or other forums. I have an auto tweet going out with the Fiverr handle. Followers favorite it and retweet it.

    5. If one of your gigs blows up, create others with the kind of the same info ie: if you are writing on blog reviews do another one with Facebook reviews.

    6. Do not use crappy pixulated photos or images. Use a photo with a beautiful girl and neon color title. Make your gigs professional.

    7. Use almost all characters for the title. Write something creative and not boring.

    8. Make sure people know you are American or English. Write good descriptions without misspellings etc. And get to the point. Give a 100% money back refund.

    9. Create small but interconnected gigs. ie: if you can write a Linkedin recommendation, then you can write a Linkedin summery and then you can endorse all their skills. I up sell these as I finish their gigs. 50/50 % will buy another one.

    10. Always, always, always ask for feedback! It makes your gigs blow the f' up! My best gig has 7.1k impressions and 12 orders.

    So, to all that say they can't or don't know how, I would implore you to sign up and just start testing and selling what you know. I am sure with a little work you could have 100 gigs bring in 4 times the amount I did.

    Good! You can scale it up 10 times. Spread your Fiverr business to social media sites e.g: Facebook, Twitter.

    Good Luck.
    Fiverr is quite tough with the launch of fiverr version 3 with many updates especially the rating one that affects a lot of users.
    Good Luck with your journey.
    Looking forward to how you scale it up.

    You are right, What I mean is people buy gigs when they have attractive pics (ex:hd pics,girls)

    I have to try it out to sell more :cool:

    Just like all the positives there are always negatives you should stay away from.

    1. Do not make multiple gigs that a very similar. Fiverr with shut them down and you just lost all the good feed back on that gig.

    2. Do not stuff keywords into your listings. I tried to put major keywords like Google, Apple into one and someone shut down that gig due to a complaint. Haters always going to hate.

    3. The customer's always right when you are first starting off. I hate to say it but I received 2 bad feedbacks and that gig went down the drain. Always give their money back or ask ‘em if they would like another gig.

    4. Do not over sell and get into a bind that you cannot give. I have used my funds to test out the water. I was happy with one gig and the other was shit. Therefor I get them a bad review. They said they would give me the moon and the stars and that was BS.

    5. Watch out for people that connect you through the mail system and customers. DO NOT give away your secrets etc.

    6. Always cancel a gig if you are dealing with someone you just cannot make happy. Yes they are lurking everywhere on this site.

    7. If a dispute should occur, Fiverr will most likely side with the buyer always!


    That is all I could come up with right now. If you all have anything to add please do.

    Also an update: I am at $164.00 with 42 days on Fiverr.com. I am also 90% complete on lvl 2. I am thinking about taking a few gigs that don't sell and creating a few new ones.
