One of the great pain points that Fiverr solves is the ability to 2 way message in a buyer/seller conversation. This is a real-time messaging system not like other Freelance programs like Up work.
You may think real-time messaging isn’t a big deal in online digital services companies but it is. Here is why. Most consumers want instant gratification. They want an answer to their buying questions now. Fiverr provides this in a real-time instant messaging. This not only gets questions answered but also encourages buying. I know that I am usually ready to pay for a Fiverr service once I have received the answers to my questions. Fiverr is free to the buyer. Fiverr does not charge the buyer to use Fiverr. They do however take a percentage of the seller’s income and charge a $1 transaction fee, presumably, to offset credit card fees. This is important information to know in Fiverr. Especially, when your Fiverr seller is asking for a little bump in their gig pay.

This is just one example of how to make money on Fiverr.
Setting up a profile to make money on Fiverr is super simple. You just sign up, provide a contact phone number, and build your 1st gig. The contact phone number is in place to provide safety. There are some important things to remember on Fiverr when building your 1st gig. Fiverr is no different when it comes to optimizing one’s content and page. Fiverr will also let you know when you try to save your gig if you have overused a word. Referred to as keyword stuffing. To optimize your profile to make sales on Fiverr you need to fill out all areas. Use a catchy and effective headline. Make sure to include in your gig for example “I will write 10 words for website, blog…” These kinds of titles are found by buyers searching for services.
Make money on Fiverr through Upsells
Always make sure you unleash the power of upsells in your gigs. One easy way to do this is pushing your dates out. I want to clarify that your dates should always be something you can handle in the case of illness, emergencies or just plain needing some you time. It is important to do this now than face a bad review. Bad reviews on Fiverr can and will end the money train. People on Fiverr shop reviews. One bad review can be the end of your Fiverr account. Not by Fiverr but because buyers do not care about 1000 or 10,000 good reviews. They want to know what happened with that one or two bad reviews. Do not worry, the won’t ask you they will just find a different Fiverr seller. One that doesn’t have a single tarnish on their record, even if they are brand new.
Reviews are especially important as you are getting started out. Making money on Fiverr is easy to do. You need to pick your gig and choose a fitting headline. A headline that incorporates good SEO that is well planned out. Be short because Fiverr will let you know when you have created the perfect gig headline. Follow their advice here. It will help get your gigs views. Fill in the Basic, Intermediate, and Premium, gig descriptions the same way. This information should contain good SEO also and a simple description. Include appropriate pricing. Do not short change yourself on the price of your gig. Be fair and consistent and include at least one $5 gig. Fiverr requires it. In fact, the more $5 gigs you have the better your sales will be. Make sure to add the appropriate categories to your gig. This will help you be found.
Include extras in your gig
Buyers will pay for extras. Examples are extra content (amount of words), extra focus keywords, to have the project in a day or two instead of seven and to add voiceovers to presentations. You can easily make money on Fiverr for sure with adding the right extras to your gig and you should.
Time management and descriptions will help you make money on Fiverr
Only do what you reasonably can do
Most buyers are not stupid when it comes to a gig that has been resold. They can usually pick up on this easily when it becomes harder to communicate about their requirements. This does not matter if you are a brand new seller or have been selling since Fiverr started in 2010. The wrong sub can burn you and your Fiverr business. It is important for you to maintain who you are to your Fiverr customers. Likewise, customers will cancel the moment your order is not delivered on time. This is important to building your online business. When you say you are going to do something for a price. Then deliver it.
Make sure to include the full description of your gig.
This is extremely important and can be the difference between a good gig and a bad gig, a good review or a bad review, and a tip or no tip. If you do not include the full description of your gig when you should then, by all means, you should not be able to make money on Fiverr. These customers pay for what you list on your gig. They pay for the work you complete, and how you complete it. Providing them a summary of what your gig will do for them will dramatically increase your sales.
Create all 7 gigs
Fill your gig board up with offers to your customer. This gives you a great chance to sell many services just like a store would showcase all of their products you too should showcase all of your services. Give you buyers the ability to see what you have to offer, even if not much at first. A good way to fill up your 3 gigs also is instead of adding an extra for delivering early just add an additional gig. For Example, your gig packages could like this:
3 days for $5 2 days for $10 1 Days for $15.
Plus creating all 7 gigs gets you special karma from Fiverr. It lets Fiverr know that you are a serious seller and that you mean business in helping make yourself money as well as Fiverr.
