    How to sell on Fiverr like a Bo$$

    Fiverr is one of the premier low cost online marketplaces that enjoys an Alexa rank position in the top 300 of all world websites. Without a doubt you can find some pretty amazing services there for a cheap price. Most if not all Internet Marketers starting out with little to no budget try selling on Fiverr to make a couple of bucks in order to propel their business. The usually story goes something like this, they create their Gig, place and image on it, and stare at the computer screen wondering why no one is clicking on their gigs or ordering them. I am going to show you how to light a fire under your Fiverr business.

    Choosing the right service
    Not all services are the same on Fiverr and some of them may suit you more than others. You need to choose the right service for your Gig wisely. After all it has to be in demand for people to want to buy it from you right? Here are some critical tips you should consider when choosing the right service for your new Fiverr gig.

    • Pick a skill you?re good at to offer to the Fiverr marketplace and its members. Newcomers often look around and see high competition for that service which scares them away. The odds of you finding a service that?s never been offered before on Fiverr is slim to none. Choose a service that will not soak up too much of your time for Five bucks and one you are comfortable with.
    • One critical mistake new guys make on the Fiverr marketplace is that they choose a Fiverr service that they can?t up-sell properly. You will make your most money on baiting people into buying ?Gig Extras? so make sure your service can easily include an up-sell.
    Combating the Empty Restaurant Effect
    If you follow me on FB or know me then you should know I speak of what I call the ?Empty Restaurant Effect? a lot and for good reason. Not one single person wants to eat in a restaurant that?s completely empty. It makes the environment feel less desirable and kills organic growth. The catch 22 comes in when you realize if no one wants to order because there?s no orders then how do you get orders? There?s a couple of ways to combat this which I have listed below, but remember you didn?t hear it from me.

    • Focus on building Facebook pages and sharing your Fiverr gig on those pages. If you can add a personal touch to your Gig then you can overcome the ?Empty restaurant? effect without breaking Fiverr?s TOS. All social media platforms work for this but you need to have them built a certain amount before you start into Fiverr.
    • If you like dabbling in the dark arts of marketing like I do and the thought of waiting around is killing you then simply buy Fiverr reviews or join Skype groups dedicated to Fiverr review exchanges. They work miracles for your Gig and if you do it right you can make it look legit.
    Please note that breaking Fiverr?s terms of service can lead to the suspension of your account which is something I don?t want to see happen to you. One tip I will give you is to really deliver a Zip file to the fake reviewer so that it looks legit if Fiverr manually checks which does happen sometimes.

    The Art of Delivery and how it Effects Your Gig Placement

    Like any other cookie cutter marketplace online you have to not only deliver products in a reasonable amount of time but you have to impress the client with delivery times. Take eBay for example. If you?re going to make it on eBay then your shipments better not be over 7 days. Well Fiverr should be three times as fast and there?s some major strategic advantages to this besides happy clients which I have conveniently outlined below.

    • Remember those fake reviews I told you or erm suggested to you earlier? Yeah make sure you delivery every one of them within 24 hours and not one second later. Why you might ask? Because if you deliver several gigs within 24 hours Fiverr will bestow upon you the ?Gig Express? banner which not only attracts instant gratification nuts but also boost you in the Fiverr algorithm. You?re essentially another step closer to being featured.
    Once your Fiverr gig ages and enjoys a natural growing effect you can relax delivery times a bit, but make those fake reviews count with 24 hour delivery or you?re not getting your full money?s worth from the review seller. While I will not link you up to people who sell reviews or exchange them I will say you can find them on internet marketing forums. Just do a simple Google search.

    Parting Words and More Fiverr Tips
    Of course I would not just leave you guys hanging without a couple of more tips. Most people sign up to Fiverr with a company name or a cool sounding username. This really does nothing for your Fiverr gig and if you really want to get the most out of Fiverr then you need to redirect Fiverr clients to your website where you can charge them for more money. When signing up for Fiverr choose your username wisely. If I was going to offer an article writing service on Fiverr I would name it ?myarticlesdotcom? or anything that helps you advertise more without breaking their TOS.

    I can guarantee you from personal results that a healthy percentage of your Fiverr clients will search that name out to find more services by you. Sure you might just want to make some extra cash online, earn some money to start your IM career, or just put your time to good use. One thing is for certain though, if you want to really get the most out of Fiverr then you need to come up with creative ways of driving traffic, clients, and money away from Fiverr and to your own website. Fiverr gigs should only be a teaser of what you really offer to bait people in for the score. Happy selling!

    B-Hat brothers would gain something from it instead.

    Nice guide for fiverr, I wonder if other marketplaces like seoclerks (and others) use the same algorithm for ranking gigs.

    You're welcome buddy I am glad it helped!

    I'm not sure about other marketplaces Lord. You could take what I written above and apply it to
    other marketplaces and see what you get. Would be interesting to know! :)

    Did they give you any explanation as to what terms you broke? If not then take a look at Fiverrs
    terms of service. One thing I was impressed about was how easy its laid out for people to read.

    Should you be careful? Well any marketplace has its cut off point where they deem you high risk
    and then suspend you. PayPal and other payment processors are famous for this. I would proceed
    with caution. :)

    Cheers guys!

    A good strategy that I learned is to over-deliver your services to the first clients and then add a bunch of Gig Extras later on. It works because you will have a lot of positive ratings and also the samples will feature the work with the gig extras added.

    This way I have one gig that sells for $25 as average.

    Oh, another tip is to make a Gig for accepting tips! If you ask kindly, you will be surprised how easy it is to get extra dollars in your pocket!

    Thanks for your insights.
    How about outsourcing? I've seen lots of basic $1 SEO services with advanced versions, which may be good for upselling. Do you have any experiance with this?

    Nice one Rabbitking you pointed some things i considered not important but seems i was wrong

    i have some gigs made this month and without any promotion i got like 15+ orders so far (Followed tips and tricks from all kind of fiverr tutorials i could find here). Am not much into it as i have bigger things that brings me more money and i added this just to get some extra $$ while my main projects are in rise. What i love the most is the tip about delivery time for fake reviews, didn't know about that one

    Great guide mate, straight to the point. One tip from me that i learned about Fiverr: there are many weird, stupid gigs all around Fiverr, and most importantly, they sell! Check out competitors and outsmart them. You will bank good afterwards.

    Nice additional tips to this thread Cricket! Liked the idea about tipping for sure. :)

    I don't have any personal experience with it but I can shed a little light. If you want to outsource then
    always order, test, and see what that person really provides. That way you know for sure its a service
    of value. I don't see any issue with it :)

    Well sounds like to me SoundCloud or someone else flagged it. This can also happen with selling FB likes and so on.
    Nothing really to worry about. If I was you I would sell the risky stuff on my shill and leave the real one a virgin account.

    Hard for me to just tell you the best number of reviews, however 10 per gig is an excellent start.
    Implement the "express Gig" delivery method and make sure you have a to the point video for
    each gig. That should get you rolling buddy. :)

    Glad you liked it Wisdomkid. True a lot of what I outlined can be used on multiple platforms
    and I would welcome anyone to test that. :)

    You're welcome! Looks like you are already to a good start West. =)

    Oh yes a service does not have to be logical on Fiverr. It just has to be trending. Plenty of little odd
    gigs making decent money out there. Glad you liked it Twist! :)

    Cheers guys!
