    Fiverr gigs are a staple for many IM'ers these days. With this short little method you can really turn it into a gold mine. I got this idea from a girl who does graphics for logos and web designs. There are a couple twists on this and because tonight I'm feeling just out right generous I'll give you two.

    Idea number one: make an outstanding Fiverr gig that you know someone would do for pennies on the dollar. In the case above, she would do a logo for 1.00. It's an instant three bucks. Doesn't sound like much but you did jack and squat for it.

    Idea number two: make a Fiverr gig saying something along the lines of "I'll sign up for 5 of you're affiliate programs under 5 unquie emails, free sign ups only!". That's a niche not many are doing. Here's we're you can really stretch the Fiverr money. Offer someone 20 bucks for the month to sign up for all the affiliates sign ups you get for that gig. You might have to buy some proxies and teach them how to clear cache/cookies and make the enquie email addresses. But youve just stretched your profits. 5 gigs pays them off and anything else is pure profit.

    Now if someone's really smart, they would be promoting both those gigs in the right places.

    This works... if you prefer to struggle to make pennies instead thousands. The effort required to make $100/mo is the same as that required to make $10k/mo. The difference is skills and marketing abilities. Why bother to make money on Fiverr when you can make real money if you put your head to it?! There's a saying where I am - "I'm too poor to buy cheap stuff" - which sums up pretty well what you get on Fiverr. From my POV Fiverr is used for the sole reason highest percentage of people in the world/internet are complete morons. Don't get me wrong, there are some gigs where you get something nice for $5 like a unique drawing or some guy singing or some girl writing your name on her boobs. When it comes to SEO/IM/making money Fiverr is useless. If you think by systematically investing $5 in a service you will make a nice profit in the long run, you're out of your mind.

    You can make nice profit with little investment, but that is half skill, half knowing to identify opportunities. I know a guy who payed $10 for a domain and sold it 6 weeks later for $20k. I know another guy who bought an almost new $80k BMW for $20k just because the owner needed that money that very moment. I know a guy who "stole" a business idea around a site, made a network of 20 sites in same niche, did some automated links and outranked the guy on 1st position. Then sold him the network for $80k and they were both very happy and win-win. Took him 4 days to build the network and 1 day to do the links. Then he had to wait a couple of months for all to get indexed and to rank. That's not me. I'm different. I don't spot opportunities that well. I excel in other areas though. Point is, Fiver and cheapo stuff make good money to a handful of people and pennies to most people.

    That's terrific that those people made that kind of money. It truly is. You're right, if you can do stuff like that then you should, but since the world isn't full of people who have the technical skills to pull that off, some people have to start with baby steps. Consider this baby steps lol

    Or gather a few bucks then move on to bigger projects. Unless you are a provider, you can upsell those fiverr buyers,
    Also fiverr reselling is still much easier imo.

    @swjedinight I get what you mean, i really do. Problem is most people get stuck at that level. Which is normal actually. Problem is they don't understand they will get stuck there. I truly believe in the "Think big" and "If you fail, then fail spectacularly" (first heard the latter from Ed Dale). For me doing an average job and succeeding is far worse than giving my soul and falling dead in the process to achieving the sky. Sadly many times I forget that about myself and I am average.

    I agree and if you think big and outside the box, it's not going to make you millions but it could point you in the right direction. Like I said, Fiverr is a staple to the beginner. It's something you use to fund projects or just eek by till something else.

    I hope you guys take it for what it is and if you like it, try it! Twist it, but for the majority of people this is their level. I personally don't use things like this anymore but I sure would if I had to.

    Well, I'd clean toilets if I had to. Don't have a problem to do what it takes to get where I want. Happily for me "cleaning toilets" means accepting clients and/or doing web development work which i dislike these days but is still better than actually cleaning toilets.

    Some people have to learn how to clean toilets before they can do other things. I think that is ok. Your talents lay at a higher level. And that's great! But not everyone can, or even wants to do what you can or are able to do. That's the great thing about this forum, it might not be your cup of tea, but someone else might find use in this and is that stepping stone to something bigger and better.

    Fiverr is just for upsells in mu opinion, so its still a good idea.
    when people talk to you over there and your a reputable seller, you can upsell them easily.

    Nice ideas.

    My guess is she doesn't know her worth and is trying to break into the business. She has a design company she's trying to get off the ground.

    I don't know why everyone is knocking his idea, it has potential.

    Most of it is out-sourced to other people to manage for you anyway. It's just a nice, simple passive income to have. Even if it's a few dollars, it's a few dollars you are getting for doing nothing nonetheless.

    I don't take it personally. People are going to hate and it's ok. You take the good with the bad. Some people might be jealous or naturally synical. I really don't mind it. I'm not going to defend or get into a flame war. It's info. Take it as you guys want to.

    I've made over 10k in fiverr in 6 months.

    I've made millions of dollars selling dumb little auto programs for $5/10.

    I find it easier to appeal to EVERYONE at a $5/10 price point instead of trying to dig out a very small handful of people that could pay $100k for an item.

    Ramping up is always the key.

    First learn how to ramp ANYTHING up and then decide what you are going to sell

    I said something in a different post on this. You couldn't be more right. Some people are suited well for Fiverr. Others are good at catching the big fish. In the end do what makes you money.

    Everything is based on a psychological level. For example, it is merely a few thoughts and how you handle them that determines failure or success. You have to know where to look, what people want, if they can buy it, and then market it. Sure, you can make money catching some fish, but what about return customers? A fish farm if you will. Finally, you need to know that psychology > any shit you can write down that you think you know.

    Commercials fail when they forget psychology, businesses suffer when they fail to use psychology. Everything comes down to knowing the buyer, and how to keep that buyer on your list. Simple, in the game industry you call them loyal fans and customers. For youtube it is subscribers. You see that 97% of YouTube sucks major balls. they don't know how to get the subscribers, but it really is simple. You need to make your content for a specific crowd. Psychology and strategies involved, and that is why sometimes you see people overnight get a lot of subs, and some just lose subs over time. Content is king, once it is buddy up with psychology.

    I couldn't agree more. It's about marketing yourself or your business. Some business's are very successful making millions but fail in the end because they lost sight of their target demographic.

    The Issue is simple - there are boys and there are big boys...There are people that are looking for somewhere to start, to learn the whole act of selling and working - there are others looking for capital - there are others that do it at the same time with their main work/biz ...What you might call GOLD might be regarded as BRONZE by another person...but at the end, Everybody makes some Money :)
