What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is essentially a marketplace for freelancers to market their services for just $5. They can list their gigs on the marketplace, and buyers can browse for the services they need.
Everything is $5, and add-on’s can often be purchased for extra amounts.
Can you make a living from Fiverr?
Fiverr is without a doubt, an excellent place to hire people for little jobs that you need doing or help with.
However, as well as purchasing stuff from other sellers on the site, it can also be quite a good part time money maker from the other side of the fence, if you’re interested in the typical categories they have on the site.
And if you really invest the time required, you can make a living from it too.
Most of the gigs that people offer don’t actually take very long to complete, which mean you’re getting $5 for not that much work.
18 Ways to Make Money On Fiverr
There are definitely more than 18 ways to make money on Fiverr, your imagination is pretty much the limit. Although, these are the most popular gigs on Fiverr so are a good place to start.
1) Search Engine Optimization
Many people on Fiverr are looking to improve their websites SEO, maybe by adding Meta titles or descriptions, or just getting their site submitted to the search engines. If you’re good at this sort of stuff then this is a ridiculously easy $5.
2) CSS fixing and editing
If your talents lie in CSS coding, or html coding etc. then definitely offer a gig for any fixing and editing. Tonnes of people who have created websites need help with this part, many of them being WordPress users.
3) Video Testimonials
A good quality camera will be needed for this. A lot of sellers offer 30 second product testimonials if someone gives them a script to say, and they then often list gig extras such as adding more time onto the testimonial.
4) Article Writing
For those that enjoy writing, you can help write good quality articles for other people on subjects of their choice, and always offer to increase the length of the article for more money.
5) Logo creation
Logos are quite a big hit on Fiverr, so if you think it’s something you’ll be good at, definitely get involved. You’ll need quite a creative mind, and you can always add extra options to your gig such as unlimited revisions or choice of 3 designs to increase your revenue.
6) Custom Graphics
Similar to logo creation, people are always after custom graphics for there various projects. It could be that they need website headers, banners or other cool images that stand out. This is another great way to make money on Fiverr if your good with design.
7) Image editing
There are plenty of different image editing aspects that you could use to your advantage here. Off the top of my head; re-sizing, cropping, sharpening etc. $5 for each of these small little edits can easily stack up.
8) Professional Voice over
Got a nice voice? Help someone with there video project or audio project by recording yourself saying there script. You’ll need a good microphone for this.
If you’re a good artist then have a go at drawing illustrations for people. This could be cartoon versions of someone, a standard portrait of them, or anything else you think someone might be interested in paying for.
Make money from reviewing other peoples’ products. They’ll then be able to use this review when promoting their new product, so you could give the review in a written format, as a video or even an audio recording. Why not offer all three and make the most of it?
11) Website Reviews
Website developers are dying to hear a second opinion on their sites after just creating them. Somebody else’s point of view, even if not that experienced could help them improve the look and feel of the site before they decide to roll it out to the public.
12) File Conversion
Quite a simple and easy one, but far too many people would rather pay someone else to convert their files to a different format, than find out how to do it themselves.
Sure, what with Google Translate and other similar programs nowadays, this might seem like a pointless gig. However, there are still people who would rather pay than look it up themselves.
Similar to website reviews, a second person’s look at things can really help spot any errors or improvements that the first might have overlooked. So plenty of people are happy to pay you to proofread some of their documents.
Backlinks are an interesting one, as I actually wouldn’t recommend buying backlinks from Fiverr. Most of the time, they’re more likely to be harmful to your site’s ranking, than actually do it any good.
However, if you have your own website and you’d like to offer to host someone else’s link on it for a short period of time, then those credentials make for a good gig.
16) Creating Social Media Pages
Social media is huge right now, and every new business no matter how big or small is creating themselves a page on as many sites as possible.
If you’re used to creating these pages, I’m sure most businesses would be happy to chuck the money at you to do one for them.
17) Music Creation
Last on my list, is music creation. You choose what you want to offer, but some good examples of this that I’ve seen are creating beats for singers, happy birthday songs or just raps in general.
18) Video Intros
What with video marketing becoming bigger than ever in recent years, now essential for marketing in 2016, video intros are high in demand.
A lot of people want a solid professional intro for their YouTube videos, and I actually purchased a gig for exactly this around a week ago. If this is up your street, reap the benefits now!
