Can I Make Money On Fiverr? - Get Paid For Using Your Skills

Can I Make Money On Fiverr

If you are asking this question, “Can I Make Money On Fiverr?” Then my honest answer to you is YES…

BUT…

(Yes, there is a “BUT” because if I just say yes then that’s too good to be true, right?)

To make money on Fiverr you need to have a technical skill (although some people offer psychic abilities) and willing to help other people.

You create a Fivver for sellers account, find work that you can do, respond to the person who is in need of your help, do the job, deliver it to them and get paid.

That’s it. That is how Fiverr works in a nutshell.

Don’t believe me? Why not see it for yourself?

Join Fiverr and type in your skill and/or the work you are willing to do on the search bar and see how many people are actually making money using their skills to help others.

No skills? Don’t leave yet I have something for you! Check out Shaw Academy because they have courses that might interest you and on top of that you will get an EQF 5 diploma that is recognized internationally.  


What is Fiverr?

Fiverr is an online marketplace for freelance services

How Do You Make Money From Fiverr? 

There are two sides to Fiverr: online freelancers and customers.

As stated earlier, in order to make money from Fiverr, you will need to register as a seller and sell your skills to customers. In other words, you make money from Fiverr by becoming an online freelancer. 

The first step in Fiverr business is to create an account then convert it into a seller account. Once you successfully registered as a seller account, then you will choose a category/sub-category that you would like to work in.

The category/ sub-category that you will choose needs to be in line with the skill set you have! 

There are currently eight categories to choose from:

  1. Graphic&Design
  2. Digital Marketing
  3. Writing&Translation
  4. Video&Animation
  5. Music&Audio
  6. Programming&Tech
  7. Business
  8. Fun&Lifestyle

There are sub-categories in each category, so you can really specialize in what services you can offer.

You can also type in the skills or services you can provide in the search menu if you don’t know what category your skills and/or services you can offer is in.

Type in your skills/services on the search bar if you are unsure what category it is in.

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 its 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.

But don’t worry about the experience and credentials part. Everyone can start from the bottom and make their way up.

Of course, if you have no experience or credentials then you probably might charge really cheap. Don’t be too hanged up about it. Just focus on building your reputation and eventually you will be able to charge higher.


1. For Noobs Like Me Who Wants to Make Money Online

No skills or experience? That works! 

It sounds bad but if you have no experience in freelancing, then Fiverr might be the best place for you to practice your new skills.

My Advice To My Fellow Noobmates

  1. Determine which category and sub-category you want to work in 
  2. Find a course on Shaw Academy, uDemy, Skillshare, Coursera, etc. They offer cheap online courses that will help you learn a new skill which you can then sell in Fiverr.
  3. Start doing a gig and practice what you have learned.
2. Skilled and Experienced

I believed skilled and experienced freelancers will benefit the most from Fiverr because they already know the game.

They have skills and experience to produce quality service and they already know how to deal with customers.

3. Professionals

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 Sellers in Fiverr Pro. normally charges from $150 to $1500.

Lazy to get up on Monday mornings?

Working on Fiverr will allow you to decide when is too much, gives you unlimited sick days and very generous on giving you overtime when extra cash is needed. Really, it is up to you to decide your workload per day, per week or per month!

Working on Fiverr makes it possible to get a raise as often as you want. Your income is based on the quality of work you provide for your customers and not just based on random metrics.

    I have always had a love hate relationship with Fiverr. As a customer, I like the fact that there are so many different types of Sellers to communicate with, and the request platform can be helpful sometimes if you don’t know what seller to hire. The platforms lets the sellers come to you instead. But you can’t get ‘money back’ in the sense that it will be loaded back to your PayPal account- you get Fiverr credit only. And as a seller you can NEVER rank to a level 2 freelancer if you refund a customer. Language barriers can also be a problem- as you are dealing with sellers from all over the world. As someone who used to purchase from Fiverr often- I recommend that you do some research to find sellers from your part of the world or at least speak your language fluently. This will help to avoid such barriers, and ensure a pleasant experience for both Seller and Buyer 🙂 

    Anyway- I didn’t mean to ramble on like that. Your article is very helpful and the points you made in your ‘benefits from Fiverr’ section are great for anyone who is looking to live the freelance life! Fiverr can be beneficial to a lot of people who want to work from home. Especially since Fiverr has promo links you can integrate directly into your site!
    Good on you, for posting about Fiverr! Not very many people post about it anymore.

    Sincerely yours,
    Darc’ie

      Hi Darc’ie, 

      I certainly appreciate your honest feedback and I’m glad you left one!

      I understand what you mean. There is a lot of hit and miss on Fiverr and if you are on the buyer side, due diligence is required to make sure that you are getting the right service for the money that you are paying for.

      Also, thanks for sharing your experience being a seller on Fiverr, I am sure a lot of my readers would benefit from the lessons that you have shared.

      Finally, I’m glad that you still appreciate my article even if you have a love-hate relationship with Fiverrs 😉
      Regards,

      John Greg

    I have read several articles online about Fiverr but your article really explained better and revealed how Fiverr works. I have a skill in freelance writing and graphic design and I think I will sign up with Fiverr as it is proven to be a source of making money online as a part time and a full time. Your article is really insightful, thanks for sharing. Great job!

      Hi, 

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving feedback.

      Yes, I believe you are an advantage since you already have a skill. All you need to do now is to market yourself. you might need to take a couple of low paying jobs early on but just try to be customer focused to get that 5 stars. Over time, you will be able to charge more!

      I hope you had the chance to visit Fiverr. Look at some of the sellers at Fiverr, some of them are able to pull $250+ for their service. Even if they have to do it for 8 hrs, that is still $30/hr!

      Regards,
      JG

    Hi john,

    It is really a nice review of Fiverr, a huge online marketplace where a big number of buyers and sellers get in touch. I am fully amazed after reading your nice article. 

    I could not stop myself leaving a comment after reading your article. I am a noob and trust me, your inspirations and suggestions are really inspiring. Now I am really going to follow your suggestions, “fake it till you make it!”.

    I think I got the proper guideline which I was badly needed. Thank you so much for such a nice post. Making money through Fiverr is really pleasuring.

    Good wishes for you! 🙂

      Hi Radeet,

      Thank you for liking my article. I hope that you will prosper in Fiverr.

      Yes… “fake it till you make it” lol. I don’t want to sugar coat it. Starting on Fiverr can be tough especially in the beginning since there are lots out there who have been doing it for a long time, but like what I have said, you can always learn a new skill, and improve it while making money.

      Think of it as OJT (on the job training); you don’t get paid a lot while you are doing your OJT but you gain experience and you develop your skill. After you finish your OJT, then you can ask your employer for a fair wage. Of course, in Fiverr, YOU decide what is a fair wage 🙂

      Regards,

      John Greg
