We use the internet in every part of our life so why not use it to earn income. There are lots of ways to make money online and Fiverr is one of the well known and well-established sites that will provide you that opportunity.
What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is an online space where freelancers can offer their skills to customers for a price.
How do I Make Money From Fiverr?
There are two sides to Fiverr. The freelancers and the customers. In order to make money from Fiverr, you will need to register as a seller. In other words, you will be a freelancer.
The first step in Fiverr business is to create an account then convert it into a seller account. Once you successfully registered for a seller account, then you will choose a category/sub-category that you would work in.
There are currently eight categories to choose from and these are Graphic&Design, Digital Marketing, Writing&Translation, Video&Animation, Music&Audio, Programming&Tech, Business and last but not the least Fun&Lifestyle. In each category, there are sub-categories, so you can really specialize in what services you can offer.
Finally, you can now create a gig and wait for a customer to purchase your services.
Who Is It For?
Fiverr strives to offer quality services for their customers and this is reflected when you are applying on becoming a seller. Aside from asking what skills/services you can offer, they will ask your experience and credentials as well.
Fiverr is also not a “passive income” or a “get-rich” quick platform. You will work for your money!
Did I discourage you? Do not be! Working in Fiverr has lots of benefits as well and you can read some of those down below.
Skilled and Experienced
I believe Fiverr is best for skilled and experienced freelancers because they already know the game. They have skills to produce quality service and they have the experience to gain the trust of their customers.
Do you think you are overqualified? Well, I have good news for you! You can apply for Fiverr Pro. Fiverr Pro is the professional version of Fiverr and sellers there normally charges from $150 to $1500.
For the Noobs
No skills or experiences? That works too!
(Wait what? I thought this is for those who have skills and experience.)
Yeah, I said that but I didn’t say you cannot use Fiverr if you don’t have one – although you will most likely put more effort in the beginning as you develop your skill and gain experience. Like in real life world, “Fake it till you make it”
Here is what you can do to earn income using Fiverr… even if you are a noob!
First, determine which category and sub-category you want to work in
Second, find a course on Shaw Academy, uDemy, Skillshare, etc that will help you learn the trade online and in a very cheap way.
P.S. Shaw Academy claims that their Professional Diploma courses earns you an EQF 5 which is recognized all over the world. I’ve used it to earn my Social Media Marketing and Business and Leadership EQF 5.
P.S. P.S. I also used uDemy to learn how to do FBA Amazon, Facebook Marketing, etc. Although the certification that you will get from there is only for the show, the payment is cheaper and the lessons are more practical.
Third, Once you finish a course, you can now start doing a gig and practice what you have learned. Of course, since you are new into the business, do not charge your customers with high fees. Offer them discounts then provide them excellent service and customer service.
By doing so, you will gain experience and your ratings will go up! As you build your reputation in Fiverr, more and more people will come to you and ask for your service. In this case, you can slowly ramp up your fee!
