Here’s today’s big question – can you make money with Fiverr or is it just another ‘pocket money’ site?
For those of you that don’t know, Fiverr is a marketplace that allows you to create and advertise gigs ( jobs ) for $5 or look for services that cost $5.
It doesn’t matter what your field of expertise is – if you’re willing to work for $5 you are welcome to showcase your talent there!
Over the years I have taken note of a few ‘golden rules’ you should be aware of if you are looking to make money with Fiverr.com…

No matter what service you are looking for on Fivver – you will ALWAYS have to pay in advance! Tasks are divided into categories including:
- Social Marketing
And much, much more…
Much like eBay – Fivver uses a feedback system so that perspective users can see how good these individual services are. It’s set out and rated by a positive feedback score – if you are no good at the service you are offering you will be weeded out!
If YOU make money with Fiverr.com THEY make a little money to – one dollar to be precise! Just think of this as commission for using their rather effective platform – once you start getting decent amounts of orders this $1 will seem like nothing at all!
So let’s take a look at ‘golden rules’ I mentioned earlier…
1) The Use of Video
If you want to make money with Fiverr.com you are going to have to upload videos with EVERY gig you post!
Gigs WITHOUT videos will always be outranked by the gigs WITH video – fact!
It doesn’t have to be long – a minute or two will do just fine. Make sure you mention Fiverr.com at least once in the video as this will also help raise the profile of your gig. The Moderators at Fiverr watch every video and read every post – if you mention their site they will favor your effort and place you on the top pages of the service listings!
2) Catch Their Attention
By now you should Know the drill about eye-catching blog post headlines – they work right? Well that concept can be put to good use on Fiverr as well!
Too often I come across advertised gigs that read something like this:
- I Will Give You 500 Back links For $5
- I Will Write a Post For $5
- I Will do Graphic Design For $5
Not the most eye-catching of offers right?
These poor examples can be simply jazzed up by minor tweaks like so:
- I Will Build 500 SAFE & Powerful Back links For $5
- I Will Write You a TOP Quality Post For $5
- I Will Provide You With a PROFESSIONAL Graphic Design Gig For $5
Due to Fiverr’s policy you can only include one word in capitals within your title – make it count! I also use the term ‘within 24 hours’ whenever I can as this seems to boost the interest my gig’s receive!
3) Original Images
People are extremely visual by nature so always aim to supply some sort of image with your gig advertisement. You could always pay a quick visit to Google Images but how many people have used these images before you?
It looks a lot more professional when you create your own advertisement image and include that with the gig!
There are numerous FREE graphic programs out there like Gimp that will provide you with all the tools needed to create a unique, professional looking image.
The time and energy you put into ensuring that your service is advertised as professional as possible will go a long way.
4) Describe The Job – Sell The Job!
Again this seems to be a part of the process that most Fiverr sellers overlook – the gig description field! This is the chance to promote your service to EVERY member out there.
Write as much as possible about the gig you are supplying – the longer the description the better the results!
You must appear to be very professional so ALWAYS re-read the description and look out for simple grammar mistakes – would you hire someone that had bad grammar?
5) Be Unique
If you are providing a service on Fiverr that has a lot of competition it is going to be pretty hard to get noticed.
Be unique and make sure the public know you are offering something different, something better! Let them know that your gig is the one they should be choosing whenever they need this type of service!
Can You Make Money With Fiverr?
I have made decent money through Fiverr but I have never worked there full time. I know many people that do work there full time and make a cracking sum of money every month!
Keep in mind that you are allowed to have 20 gigs at one time on Fivver. If you are thinking of doing this full time then I suggest you get as many of these gigs out there as possible!
If every one of those 20 gigs gets say two orders a week that’s $200 already ( minus the commission of course! ). You can see the potential right – what happens if you get around 4 orders a week for each gig?
