How to Make Money on Fiverr – Part 1
Have you have been trying to make money online and keep failing? Or do you need a way to generate investment for your other online businesses? Or if you just need a way to put some extra cash into your pocket. One sure place to try out is FIVERR. And in this article I am going to show you exactly how make money on Fiverr
Fiverr.com is a micro marketplace or let’s just say a mini freelance website that allows people to sell services for $5. Each service on Fiverr is called a gig. So the next time I mention the word “gig”, you know what I mean.
And here is what their homepage currently looks like:
And here is a screenshot of from one my Fiverr Account as at the time I am writing this post:
So, what you simply have to do on Fiverr is find a service (worth selling for $5) that you are able to handle, get it listed on Fiverr, get the job done whenever you get an order and deliver the report afterwards.
There are many services you can render on Fiverr, but often times, I advise people to go for something they are interested in… Surely I have my reason and that is of course because, from personal experience, I have had more success doing something I am interested in. I don’t know why, but I think it is because you will love doing it…
“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.” Maya Angelou
But what if everything you are interested in are not selling on Fiverr? Then I will say, look for one of the top services on Fiverr, learn how to deliver it and get in going. Below is a list of some top selling gig ideas on Fiverr:

How to charge more that $5 per gig
What pulled many people off Fiverr is the $5 thing… $5 is way too small for people in advanced countries like USA and UK. It probably won’t buy more than a cup of coffee.
Anyway, there is no need to panic, you can have upsells, otherwise known as gig EXTRAS. The way this work is, let’s say for example you are selling a Logo design for $5 and you are giving them just the PNG or maybe the JPG file… You can offer to give the PSD file for an extra $10. That’s just a common example. There are many ways you can twist things around.
The type of extra I like most though is the EXTRA FAST DELIVERY. Here, if your normal delivery frame is 4 days, you can offer to deliver in 1 day for an extra $5, $10, or even more.
One thing that really makes sense on Fiverr is their level system and the advantages this system possess. Below, I will walk you through these levels, requirements to attain them and the benefits you will get from them.
