But before we go any further let us explore services you can offer on fiverr whether you have any special skill or not. If you have any special skills say for instance you are a good writer or graphic designer, list the skills you have on a paper and head to fiverr.com, type the skills you can offer like graphic design in the search box, the aim of this is to know what sells and what does not sell, if you want to focus on logo design type in logo design in the search box,. it will redirect you to a page where you will see different gigs in logo design, what I want you to check here is the orders each gig on the page has and this will help you evaluate the market potential of the logo design niche. you can see the orders on each gig by hovering your mouse on the gig, at the top of the gig it will show the orders like this (1k orders, 2k orders e.t.c)
If there are enough orders here we can assume that this type of gig sell very well, so that is how you evaluate your market if you want to focus on article writing you can use the same process it works just the same way.
If you don’t have any special skills
Do this just like we listed out the skills above, go to fiverr and check the categories section for categories that interest you. Then write them down on a list, if you have interest in writing, graphic design, video creation e.t.c write them down and perform the same evaluation process we used above to know what sells on fiverr, once you see a gig that sell very well and it also interest you are good to go.
For me I will pick logo design, what you need to know here is that you don’t have to know how to design logos to make or create this kind of gig, I will give you a free platform that will help you design the logo for free, so all you have to do is collect orders, use the platform to create the logo in seconds, deliver the logo and make your money. Sounds good right? lets move on.
Now if you want to use the free platform that will help you design the logos in seconds visit this place HERE
Now that you have a gig to offer lets create the gig. click create gig and you will see something like this
Pick a compelling and attention grabbing title, your title must be catchy, compelling and attention grabbing because it has to make your visitors want to click on your gig. Don’t just write any title and move on, if you make the mistake of writing a shabby title you may not get any sales. For example which one would you like between this two
“I will design a good logo for you for $5” or “I will help you create a killer logo for $5” now which one would you go for? I bet it’s the second one, so you see what I mean by catchy and compelling title. Use the second one as your gig title.
the next thing you need to do here is upload your gig image, make sure you upload a nice looking custom image here and it should depict the gig you are selling, you can use picfont to create one or get any friend of yours to help you create a nice image. Don’t just go to google and copy any image you see. The image should be high resolution and should be 1100 x 260 pixels
The next thing is the category, you should do is choose the graphic & design category for the gig, then move to the gig description section. Before you write your description check out top sellers in the logo design category and look at their gig description, the aim of this is for you to see what a winning gig description looks like, you are not to copy their description under any circumstances but just get a feel of how it is written. Make your gig description compelling and unique, it must appeal to what the buyer wants and most importantly sell your gig. Yeah also make sure it contains the keyword logo design.
Now you go to tags, this is very important as it helps your gig to rank well in fiverr and allows it to appear to a lot willing customers.
Make sure the tags are relevant to the gig in question for our logo gig add two tags, “logo design, logo creation, logo and graphic design” , after this click save and continue
Pricing & gig extras and delivery time
This will take you to the other pages where you will fill in the pricing and gig extras. Now you must know that the default price for every basic gig on fiverr is $5, so you should set your price at $5 and the delivery time you should set for this particular gig is 1day because setting the gig at 1day will help you get more sales when you are just starting out. You may leave the gig extras for the time being
After setting the pricing and delivery time you then move to the next stage which is to add video, fiverr allows to add a video to your gig and this video will help get your gig in front of the right audience. see it here
It is said on fiverr that people who add video to their gig sell 200% more than those who don’t. in case you are wondering what kind of video we are talking about, it is just a video describing your gig(what you are offering to do and everything about your gig). If you can’t make the video yourself you can purchase any of the top $5 gigs on fiverr that is you can hire any of the top video makers on fiverr for $5 and you will get your video.
Now if for any reason you don’t want to go that route you should know that it is not compulsory to have a video it just help you to rank better but if you don’t have a video to upload you will still make your money on fiverr.
After having done that the next thing is to input your requirement for doing and delivering the order that is you will specify all the information you need from the buyer and all the things you need the buyer to do before you start work. After that click save and continue then you will move to the stage where you publish your gig.
After you publish click done then you will be taken to your seller dashboard where you can see how many orders you have, how many sales you have made, how much money you have in your account and there you can also edit your gig and make any amendments you see fit later in the future.
20 gigs on one account(multiple streams of income)
You now have a working fiverr account and a gig positioned to making you huge money on fiverr, now I want to tell you that it gets better. On that one account you opened you can create 20 gigs on it for maximum profit, that is you can add 19 more gigs to the first one for more exposure and more money. It may be up to 20 and it may not be up to that, depends on what you are comfortable with.
Just imagine that you have 10 different gigs on graphic designing(from logos to ebook covers to posters e.t.c) and you manage to get at least 2orders from each account everyday that is $5×2=$10 and if we multiply that by 10 it adds up to $100 per day or lets assume that you have 5 solid gigs on fiverr, with the right promotion you can get 4 orders every day from each and that is $5×4=20 x 5 = $100, now isn’t that just splendid making extra $100 per day or $3000 per month. what will you do with the money? Buy a new car, rent a new place or take a small holiday, you name it and all this is there for you to take if you put in the required effort and utilize the right strategies.
