Can I Make Money On Fiverr

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.

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 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!

      Hi, 

      Thanks for liking my article. It is also an encouragement to me and anyone who is reading this article and planning to take a leap of faith and become a seller to Fiverr. Your success story can be a really good lesson for others. 

      I hope you share a bit more about your story 🙂

    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
