    Hi guys,

    This is a method for noobs to start earning some money on Fiverr. It involves selling traffic.

    1) Go to fiverr and create a gig titled "I will send you 2000 REAL visitors your website for $5", or something to that effect (emphasise on the fact that they are "real" visitors)

    2) Write a good description. Read other top sellers descriptions to get ideas. Make it clear that although you are sending real visitors, you don't guarantee sales but it is good for Alexa rankings, etc (you don't want a buyer who was expecting conversions to leave negative feedback and destroy your rating). Also mention that you don't allow sites with framebreaking scripts or popups on entry/exit (I'll explain why below).

    3) Make a video! This is really important. I see so many sellers on fiverr without videos. There are hundreds of sellers out there and you need to outrank them in the gig search results. You can make your own free videos by googling "royalty free background videos" and "royalty free soundtracks", combine them together, and adding some text effects using Windows Movie Maker. Also add ALL relevant keywords to your description!

    4) Now when you get your first sale, go to ****** and create an advertising account. Then go to "Create Campaign" and buy 2000 visitors from countries with cheaper rates like Cambodia/Indonesia/India/Thailand. They cost $0.5/1000 visitors, so your cost will be $1 (adfly does have a minimum $5 upload - but you can use the remaining $4 for the next few customers). Which leaves you with $3 after adfly and fiverr fees. (adfly doesn't allow framebreaks/popups, which is why I mentioned not to allow them in your gig description)

    5) Send the traffic to your customer!

    If you're struggling to get sales, make a purchase with another account and leave feedback (don't overdo it just to be safe). You can even offer more visitors than 2000 and later reduce it back once you have a few sales and some feedback.

    Feedback is important to getting sales on Fiverr. So for your first few customers, you could offer to send another "2000 free visitors" if they agree to leave you a positive feedback.

    If you're creative, may be you could add your own twist to the gig (e.g. bonuses).

    This won't earn you a truckload of money, but it's a good way for noobs with little money to start earning, before moving on to more profitable ventures.

    Hope this helps!

    It's actually purely common sense but you have to think about this.
    Nice share! :D

    theres a huge amount of traffic gigs of 2000 visitors on fiverr, hard to get over them when you are not rated. try going for 3000 visitors and cut your revenue to 2/5$ per sale, but you'll sale a lot more. the time you'll spend on it won't pay unless you'll get 10+ orders per day, but still it's a nice way to earn a few bucks that requires minimum setup

    I agree that it's rather over populated.

    Possible to get some sales.

    but the same mechanism can be applied to many other services; just find something that costs less than 4$ and is easy to manage and resell it on fiverr...

    Same thing is being done here in the forums I guess... even combining different fiverr gigs and reselling them on ebay (or the forums) will work..

    the hardest part with fiverr is getting as many eyeballs on your gig

    I see a lot of people promote their gigs through adwords lately

    getting some reviews and a "push" to your gig can make it rank quite well both on fiverr search, google and yahoo

    I've seen a gig that generated $45,000 worth of sales in one year now think about that :) That is what I call business and the gig has roughly 300 orders in que always getting new order etc, it's basically all autopilot.

    Promoting a gig and getting some eyeballs on it is the most important to actually earn some decent money....

    Yeah guys, you got to be creative. If you're selling traffic, it's most likely that the buyers are aiming it at their money site. So you could, for example, offer to do a free on-site SEO report using some tool like IBP or SEO Powersuite (which is in the download section here) as part of the gig. This is just an example, I'm not saying to exactly do this (there's no point in everyone doing the same 'twist' and saturating it), but this is just to give you an idea.

    Think of something you could add to the gig that other traffic sellers haven't included, yet costs nothing extra for you to provide, but will be valued by the end buyer. You can stop doing the extra later once you're a top seller and look credible.

    You could also provide more visitors in the beginning (i.e. just about break even) to get your initial feedback rolling in, and later reduce the visitors when your established.

    Also, the thing you can control is adding a video and all the relevant keywords. With good feedback + a video + good keywords you can rank higher in the results. Sellers at the bottom of the results pile tend to have no video and few/bad keywords. And buy your own gig to leave feedback if you don't get any sales, just to give people assurance that at least one person has bought the gig and was satisfied.

    UPDATE: I've seen that Linkbucks offers visitors from China at $0.10 per 1000 visitors. So you can sell 5,000 ($0.50) or even 10,000 ($1) visitors on fiverr and still turn a profit!

    And it's not even saturated yet. I just had a quick look on fiverr and there aren't many sellers offering 10,000 or even 5,000 visitors. And most of the sellers don't even have a video on their gig so outranking them is gonna be a piece of cake.

    I haven't tried this with Linkbucks yet, and I'm not going to, so some noobs can have a chance :)

    Hi

    Please be gentle as I'm a noobie!

    I've followed the plan, I've a buyer on Fiverr and I've created a campaign on ****** that is happily tootling along sending visitors to the said site.

    My problem is that my buyer has asked what the referring URL is and I have no idea. Will Google analytics (or whatever he is using) show the traffic as coming from ****** or will it be from each individual visitor?

    I'm reluctant to tell him that it's from ****** as if he does a little digging he'll realise that he could have bought the traffic for a lot less money himself.

    Any ideas!

    This method works but there are already a lot of sellers doing the same gig. You need to add a twist to make this work.

    First of all, congrats on getting a sale! Yes, the buyer will be able to see the traffic coming from adfly on Google analytics since that is the referrer.

    You can cloak the traffic using a "301 redirect" from one of your domains if you have one. If you don't have a domain, then simply answer the buyer by saying "I have business partnerships with several traffic exchanges and the traffic will come from one of them. I can't tell you the exact referrer since a partner traffic exchange will be chosen at random depending on the load" blah blah... You get the point.

    Yes I have, although I started it months ago when it was arguably easier. Anyway, there is no setup costs and anyone can put the gig up in under an hour (including video creation time) so there's no harm in anyone trying.

    Indeed, a twist should be added. Also - I haven't yet tried the Linkbucks traffic source method that I mentioned in my previous post. You can get 10,000 visitors for $1, so it's not gonna be hard to compete on fiverr after offering that many visitors. As promised in my previous post, I won't use it so that newbies can have a chance to try it out. It would be great if a newbie implements the Linkbucks method and reports back here.

    Thanks ;)
