Fiverr.com is a website that allows freelancers to offer various services for $5 per gig. Customers can browse for all types of services, including graphics and design, content writing, social media campaigns, and more. You might be wondering how freelancers can afford to work for $5 per gig. After all, you’d have to write a lot of blog posts for $5 to be able to pay the rent. Fortunately, there are ways that you can make more than $5 on Fiverr.com, and by mastering them, you could be one of several people who make thousands of dollars per month from the site.
Offer Upgraded Services
Fiverr.com gives freelancers the chance to offer upgraded services for higher rates for each job that they post. For example, if you offer to write a standard 500-word blog post for $5 with a 5-day turnaround time, you could offer a rush service, longer blog post, or more in-depth piece at higher rates. While you may get some orders for plain, quick and easy $5 blog posts, you can really boost your income per piece using the website’s upgrade feature.
Become a Top-Rated Seller
Top-rated sellers have the option to set their starting price higher than $5, because they are offering a premium service. To become a top-rated seller, you have to consistently deliver work on time, get good reviews, and respond to customers’ messages quickly. Basically, you have to work hard, and it does take time, but once you become a top-rated seller, you’ll be able to set your prices as high as $500 per order.
Create Passive Income Gigs
Instead of writing thousands of blog posts for $5 each, develop a product that you can sell over and over. For example, write a short ebook that you can sell for $5 each. You only need to do the work one time, but you continually get paid $5 each time your ebook sells. If you aren’t a writer, you could sell simple digital graphics, stock photos, or even a short video containing advice on a specific subject.
The fact is, Fiverr.com isn’t for everyone, but it can be a viable source of income for freelancers who are willing put time into building their Fiverr accounts so that they attract a large amount of repeat clients. If you’re considering becoming a Fiverr.com seller, take the time to think about gigs that you can complete quickly, and grow your business from there.
