    I am making this thread to open the eyes of BHW members to be able to see fiverr for the full potential that it has. Yes this was outlined in a recent ebook, but I feel I can word it easy for you and also help you gain more insight with additional tips and tricks. I also find that people would rather read straight off the post rather than download a product and read it that way. If you have not utilized fiverr for selling services yet, this is a great guide to help you get started!


    *NOTE: If you are looking for tips on earning with Fiverr WITHOUT ever having to create a gig, skip the golden rules and go straight to the methods.


    Did You Know?:
    Fiverr itself takes one dollar from the seller for each sale, so the seller makes 4 dollars per sale.

    -------

    Think with me... about all the fast food chains out there that have their dollar/value meals. $1 for a cheeseburger. Might not seem like a lot, but when you have 10+ items on the dollar menu, selling millions a day, it adds up. And that's exactly our mentality for our fiverr gigs. It all adds up.

    -------

    I want to outline some "golden rules" which will help skyrocket your fiverr earnings overnight:

    Rule 1: ALWAYS Upload A Video For Each Gig
    This rule may just be the most important rule. If you are charasmatic and entertaining, this will increase sales as well. Just be clear and to the point. There may be a gig that is a better offer than yours, but if you have a great video, you will find your gig will continue to get more sales than your competitors. A TIP that you may not know is fiverr moderators actually view each video individually. If you mention fiverr.com once or twice, you will find yourself ending up on the first page, starting off with a little boost. This little trick has been working for me since I started really getting into fiverr, so I know it'll work for you. Use these tips above and you will see an increase in sales of about 75%.


    Rule 2: Pick A Creative, Specific, And Eye CaTcHiNg Title
    This may be the oldest view increaser in the books, though it still works like a charm today. There are countless gigs out with titles such as "I will sing a song for $5" or "I will do graphic design for $5". These are NOT good titles! An improvement would be "I will sing a PROFESSIONIAL amazing song for $5". While this may not be the best title in the world, it's way more catchy that the first too. And that's really all you need. Another good one would be "I will design a KILLER amazing artist piece of art for $5". I'm not sure if you noticed, but the two "good" examples have one word in all caps. It is part of Fiverr's policy that only ONE word in the title can be all capital letters. TIP: take advantage of this and use that capital word to captivate the eyes of the browsers. Another TIP is to add "Within 24 hours" to some of your gigs that you can complete within this amount of time. Only do this if you are POSITIVE you can complete the gigs in this amount of time. If you can, you will increase your sales by up to 20%.


    Rule 3: Upload a Custom Made Picture
    You are required to upload a picture about the service you are providing. When you are doing this, try to use Photoshop. MS Paint will also do just fine, although I prefer Gimp. Create a flashy custom made image which represents your gig. Do NOT download a generic picture in google images for the sake of having a picture. The time you put into ensuring that your service is advertised as professional as possible will go a long way.


    Rule 4: Have A Long And Articulate Description
    When it comes to writing a description, the more words the merrier! Do not write two sentences and be general, explain how your product is amazing. Explain what you will do IN DETAIL and explain in as many words as possible the features of this service. Be very articulate and professional sounding, remember the costumer is only spending 5 dollars but he/she still doesn't want to throw it away. Rather if they see that the seller has taken time to explain in detail the product, they will be more comfortable to spend that five dollars.


    Rule 5: Always Have 20 Gigs Active At Once
    The maximum numbers of gigs you can have at once as a seller on Fiverr is 20. If you have any less then that, you are simply not putting yourself in
    a position to gain maximum profits. You have to be creative enough to come up with 20 things you can do for people for five dollars, even if many of the
    gigs only get a couple orders a week. The key thing you must remember is creating multiple streams of income for yourself. That a gig that is just sitting there collecting two orders a week bringing in $8 a week is actually bringing In $32 a month and almost $400 annually. Which adds up to your total as a Fiverr Seller. In addition to this, every gig brings traffic to your page profile, which brings traffic to your other gigs! So the more you are on fiverr the better. TIP: have gigs in different sections not just the same one or two. It is important to spread yourself around be seen in many categories. This will broaden your customer base and may bring someone who originally purchased graphics from you, now purchasing music & audio.

    These five golden rules should ALWAYS be applied to ALL of your gigs. If you practice these five golden rules of fiverr to the tee and do them correctly, you will earn drastically increase your profits on SELLING FIVERR GIGS.

    -------

    The great part about it is if you have not earned money online yet or if you are a relative new comer, having that fiverr money roll in will be a great motivation, and it will let you have a taste of what is to come your way. But what if you've never sold on fiverr? No problem. I have some great, tested ideas that will start making you money THIS WEEK.


    Method 1: Easy Affiliate Marketing Profits (no selling required)
    Choose a product on the ClickBank marketplace that has decent gravity and is generally known to be a good topic to promote to a non-targeted list. Once this is done, just copy the affiliate link that they have provided you, then you visit bit.ly and create a shortened version of this link. Then, go to the "Social Marketing" section of the Fiverr page and the first things you should see on the front page will be gigs such as "I will tweet to my 10 thousand followers for $5". Begin scoping out these gigs and purchase
    them one by one. I usually purchase about 5 to get the job done. The gigs will be ordered and you will send them the shortened URL along with a pitch such as "Wow I can't believe how much weight I lost thanks to the program at bit.ly/2s93H4" have the fiverr sellers copy and paste this link to their followers.


    Method 2: Facebook Likes
    Today, Facebook Likes are VERY valuable. On Fiverr, there are many people who provide these Facebook likes under market value. For instance, there are websites that sell 1000 Facebook likes for 80 dollars, but on Fiverr you can find people who have gigs that will provide you with 500 Facebook likes for $5. Start out by finding a good domain name that has to do with Facebook Fans or likes. Set up a basic word press template or have a basic site designed for you that will explain what your new company does (Facebook Marketing) and your costs (above $5) set up the website and enjoy the hundreds of dollars a week for a few months, after 2-3 months of having a profit making website, put the website on Flipa and sell it for $xx,xxx dollars like I did with mine.


    Method 3: Graphic Design/Video Outsourcing
    Logos, Templates, and Banners are commonly found on the "Graphics" section of Fiverr. Find the good ones, then mark up the videos and graphics $5 to $50, or even $5 to $100+ by targeting larger companies and delivering the products quickly. One big money maker of mine is to sell short video clips made using adobe after effect that is widely available all over Fiverr to clients for at least $200, I get about 3-4 clients a month just for the After Effect videos, the graphics and logos can be marked up to $100 and are much more common to sell then the after effect videos but all have great mark up.


    Method 4: YouTube Subscription Sales
    The exact same concept of the Facebook Likes applies to this section. After you have been successful for a couple months, off to flippa you go...


    Method 5: Testimonial Agency
    The most creative way to use the talents on Fiverr, is to use the countless people offering "Video Testimonials" to make your own Testimonial Agency, providing companies with dozens of people that will record Testimonials
    about their product or service at a bulk price. I have charged $300 dollars and as much as $800 to provide this service. Once I made a profit of $750 In 5 days of work, and it only cost me about one hour of labor (mostly copying and pasting the script to the Fiverr sellers) definitely worth a shot.


    While the methods may not be outstanding, the information is there. You can put your own twists into these ideas to help you profit BIG with Fiverr. Some people are making thousands a month on Fiverr. And if you take these golden rules into consideration, and utilize some of these methods (and create some of your own), that could be you!

    If you have any questions or need any further help with Fiverr, feel free to post! I'd be more than willing to help you out.


    Some people have posted that this advice is from an ebook... and it is. I stated this in my opening sentence. The download link is provided below:

    Well I would say I am probably one of the more successful people on Fiverr, and I will say that most of those tips are only for certain niches.

    I have made over $2000 on fiverr, and I have never uploaded a video, I have never been featured, my titles are usually pretty straight forward and bland, I use basic pictures found on Google images, I use the shortest description I think I can to describe my services, and I never run more than 2-3 active gigs per account.

    Your comments on your order and favorites are the most important thing in Fiverr. Always encourage your buyer to leave positive feedback. If you can promise them a little "extra" for their order, they will for sure leave an amazing Feedback and favorite your Gig.

    If you get more detailed in your descriptions, you do leave yourself open to more disputes if you don't exactly deliver word for word what you promise. If you be very vague, you can be sure you will be able to deliver the gig as advertised.

    And my most important tip is about not running 20 gigs on 1 account. Fiverr lets you create tons of accounts easily, so its better to run multiple accounts in my opinion. If you are running 20 gigs, sometimes people get distracted viewing your "other gigs" and then they notice one of your competitors gigs and they purchase from them instead.

    So take the first set of tips if you want, but I am more successful then most featured sellers and I have found success with all kinds of different titles/pictures/descriptions etc. The key is to find a service people want to buy, and deliver it good, and get good feedback.

    Really nice methods, thanks, my only concern though is letting people know of our services that we outsource on Fiverr.

    If we create a website, how do we get (targetted) traffic in a short time? SEO is a long-term game.

    When targetting larger companies, do we email webmasters one by one, or is there a way to accelerate the process?

    So what are your recommendations for getting customers for our services?

    Thanks!

    These are great tips for people who want to get started. I think I'll use these methods on Fiverr and UpHype, I can charge more on UpHype for a better in depth service.

    I love your tips but must be fast to condemn this line in your method 2;

    "Today Facebook Likes are more valuable than most currencies in Africa"

    The above statement is not only erroneous but can also be seen as a lash on the African continents... I understand you copied the statement from one stupid marketer...

    But, I'll urge you to edit and remove that line!

    I used to always cash out to the same paypal email address, but I think Fiverr doesn't like this now. The good thing is that paypal allows you to add different email addresses to receive money from. I just add a new email to paypal for every Fiverr account I run.

    You shouldn't need more than 7 for Fiverr. The key here is quality gigs. Put a Gig on Fiverr, if you dont get 1 sale within a week, remove it, and repost it again with a little different keywords and title.

    Great summary OP. Thanks for taking the time to summarize fiverr's potential. I make about $150 month with fiverr and I started only 2 months ago. Although it is not a whole lot of money it pays my cell bill and hosting. Another good thing I noticed is that my sales having been growing nicely. Like you said $4 doesn't seem like a lot but if you get 5 $4 orders a day that equals $20/day or $600 month. That is nothing to sneeze at if you're looking for some extra cash to make ends meet. I live in the US so $600 is not a lot of money but in certain other countries, this is good money. Therefore, do not underestimate fiverr. As fiverr grows in popularity which it will so will your income grow.
