Fiverr: the new website where you can sell almost anything for $5. But can Fiverr sellers really make a significant amount of money from the site? At this point the answer is a definite "maybe". It really all depends on what you're selling and how you present it. Below are 5 Fiverr tips for sellers looking to make the most of the Fiverr experience.
1. Time is Money
Remember, buyers on Fiverr are only paying $5 per gig, and you're getting a little less than $4 after fees. Whether you decide to list a product or a service, you need to make sure the time you're putting in is worth the money. If you offer a Gig that takes an hour of your time, you are effectively working for $4 an hour. Which brings us to #2 on our Hot Fiverr Tips list. . .
2. Work Smart
Many of the Gigs on Fiverr are service-based and time-limited, and this is smart from the seller's perspective. From a 15 minute phone consultation or answers to a specific question to singing telegrams and letters from "Santa", savvy Fiverr sellers know how to make the most of the Gigs they offer. This leads us to the third of our Fiverr tips. . .
The most successful sellers on Fiverr have mastered the concept of Gig reselling. By offering the same service multiple times, sellers can fit more Gigs, and more dollars, into their day. Think about it: if each Gig takes you 15 minutes, how many can you fit in a day? Or you can create a product to resell and get paid multiple times for the same work. Reports, worksheets, recipes, special diet plans, and more are currently being sold on Fiverr. This brings us to the last two items on our list, Fiverr tips to make the sale. . .
4. Tweaking a Gig
The first step to getting Gigs on Fiverr is to get people to click on your listing. This is where the title and picture you choose come into play. You want something creative enough to stand out, but not so far out there that people think you can't possibly fulfill it for only $5. Once the prospective buyer has clicked on your Gig, it's your description and feedback that will need to close the deal. Tweak your titles and descriptions, and run multiple versions of a listing. You'll be able to see which versions get the most buyers, and then use the best for future listings.
5. Fiverr Gig Videos
Another great way to make your Gig stand out is to upload a video. You can make a video of yourself or someone else describing the Gig details, or anything else related to the job. Fiverr videos allow you to let your creativity shine through and connect with potential buyers on a more personal level.
These Fiverr tips are great for getting started on the site, but your long-term success is up to you. To really make it on Fiverr, you'll need to generate good feedback by offering quality Gigs and delivering on time. Once you've established a trusted reputation with your Gigs, business will increase.
