There is a lot of money if you do graphic designing works online. The Fiverr is an ultimate platform to earn extra money. You can also read my earlier article ” How to earn money by Graphic Designing“.
Fiverr is a global online marketplace offering tasks and services, starting at a cost of $5 per job performed and are known by the name Gigs. The site is primarily used by freelancers who use Fiverr to offer services to customers worldwide.
I have been worked on many of the projects in Fiverr like Logo, T-shirt, Photo collage, graffiti font & corporate identity designs.
In reality, some things that you may want to offer may seem to be worth more than $5 at times but the sales model is designed to offer an affordable service which is not impossible for most customers to purchase.
If you think about it, $5 is the perfect price to sell various sorts of services and even some types of physical products that are cheap to send out and get to your customers. It is always a good idea to try to find products or services you can provide at $5 per gig. The interest in the Fiverr website has increased greatly as more and more people have discovered the buying power of just $5 on Fiverr.
The Fiverr website service is also 100% free to join so you do not have to worry about having to pay a monthly service fee to be a part of such a large community of buyers. You will however only receive $4 profit from each sale as a seller. This large amount of traffic to the website will help ensure that you get several sales for your products or services.
All testimonials on the site are uncontrollable by the seller. This means that for every positive feedback that you receive you will be getting a positive view on your Fiverr business. This also means that you will want to reduce the amount of negative feedback scores that you receive by providing a superior service or product and delivering it within a timely manner.
Since Fiverr is a great place to sell, you will really want to conduct your business on the site in the most truthful and honest way possible. Ensure that you always follow all of the rules and regulations of Fiverr as well as the Terms of Service for the website. Never attempt to scam or falsely represent yourself, your products or services and expect people to just hand you money. Fiverr can and will permanently disable your account as well as withhold payments made to your account for safety clearing.
How to Choose a Profitable Fiverr Niche?
Of course, you want to know what you can make right now and start earning some money. The best course of action that you could take is to conduct some basic research about Fiverr gigs that already exist. If you have a basic idea of what you would like to do for your business, simply search some of those ideas with the Fiverr gig search. This way you will be presented results of similar gigs which you could look into and learn more about what others are offering. If you visit a specific gig for instance, you can read feedback from customers which have made purchases of the specific gig.
Your research will help you to understand whether or not a certain type of gig niche is more profitable based on the popularity of the gigs and how many sales they have made. Gigs with several buyers, for example, will be options which are good to look into. Any specific existing gig that you decide to look into will be able to provide you with information about how many orders are in queue as well as how many positive and negative feedbacks have been received for the specific product or service.
The waiting period should also be noted for the popular gigs as you will want to see how long they set aside to get the job done that you may be thinking of offering. While some Fiverr sellers set only a 24 hour waiting period, you will notice that more and more gigs will have waiting periods passing one week in length. This is a good idea, especially if the gig becomes very popular and makes several sales which get in the queue.
It is a good idea to look into gigs which are simple to plan and prepare for and execute to make the best profit from them. For example, we will discuss a possible gig that you may be able to perform and make a cool $4 profit from (after the $1 Fiverr transaction) with only a few minutes of work.
The gig would be “I will create a 60 second video of me promoting your website for $5”
You would only need to get some basic information from the buyer such as the type of website, the website address and basically anything that the buyer would like you to say about their website. Once that is completed you can arrange what you want to say in the video in the order you want, read it over and create the video within a 60 second time span.
Use High-Quality Images on your Gigs:
The best thing you could do to help you sell your gigs to your audience is to have a high quality image. Gigs with very simple and plain images seem like the seller was too lazy to spend time creating their listing so it will look like they are going to be lazy or not take the time to complete the order to the best of their ability.
If your service cannot be displayed in a simple way with a gig image, try to use imagery to describe your service. If you are going to be offering a writing services for example, take a photo of a piece of paper with some writing on the page such as “Professional writing services” or something of the sort. As long as you can catch the eye of the buyers you will be getting more traffic to your gigs.
Use the Correct Keyword:
Of course you may know more or less that people will find gigs based on searches. It is important to use the correct keyword to be found by buyers eager to hand over $5. You have two places where you can put keywords, in the title of your gigs and as tags to describe the gig.
If you are providing testimonials, for example, you will want to have the word “testimonial” in your title such as “I will make a 30 second video testimonial about your product for $5”. The keyword helps the user find your gig. The tags should be used to provide alternatives to “testimonial” so that people can find it if they use different search keywords. Possible options are “recommendation”, “review” and “promotion”. This way if buyers search these terms they can find your “testimonial” service.
Provide Clear Instructions to Buyers:
The clearer your instructions are to your buyer, the faster they can provide any information that you need so that you can complete your order on time.
Any information about the subject of an article, the size of a bracelet, a reference picture to use for a drawing, the name of the person you are singing to, Logo design that you are willing to do and also extra charge for the revisions, etc., is important to have. All of this information is important for those gigs which require those details to get the job done.
It is important for the seller to give these instructions right away to buyers as well so that the buyer is not over discussing what they want through messages with the seller.
Generate Traffic to your Gigs:
Getting traffic to your gigs is essential to get buyers. You don’t have to spend a penny to get the word out about your Fiverr gigs with a few simple-to-use traffic options.
Social media is something that is used by several hundreds of millions of people and can get a large amount of traffic based on how you work these systems.
Facebook is perhaps one of the most popular social media websites right now. Everyone and their mother probably have a Facebook account and they are constantly sharing interesting things that they find online. Chances are that you have a Facebook account or know someone that does which can get the word out about your Fiverr gig. If not, you can create one and start making contacts with people you already know as well as complete strangers. By posting links to your Fiverr gig on the Fiverr Facebook page you can even get thousands of views the same day.
Twitter is also another social media giant with over 300,000 tweeted messages made every hour at peak times (and growing). With millions of users, Twitter is a simple way to spread the word about your Fiverr gigs. Make sure to use the hash tags of #fiverr, #$5, #cheap and other related terms along with an optimized link to your Fiverr gig listing. The more followers you have, the faster you can spread the word.
Many forum websites are specialized and will deal with different types of topics. If your Fiverr gig is related to such a forum, it makes sense to post links to your listing on these types of forums. Take advantage of forums which have large amounts of traffic and users to get the best chances of gaining traffic and exposure to your Fiverr gigs. One site is Warrior Forums, which specializes in allowing people to showcase their talents.
Craigslist is a free online classifieds ads system. Simply find your city (or any city you want your listing to be seen in for that matter) and make a listing in the appropriate category about your service. Direct the Craigslist users to visit your Fiverr listing for more information and where to purchase your product or service from.
Free Classified Ads
Aside from Craigslist, there are several free classified ads services available online that you could submit your ads to. They will run the ad and you just need to wait for the traffic. It is not guaranteed that you will get traffic but you could always try and that will help in the long run. Keep classified ads concise and to the point and provide a link to your gig on Fiverr.
Never get negative feedback. That is not a suggestion, it is something that you need to strive for to help ensure that those who see your gigs understand that you are serious about what you offer and are willing to do your job well.
Offer 100% satisfaction and fix things until your customer is satisfied. This will help to provide a better experience for your customer and ensure that your feedback score remains flawless. The only time you cannot do this is when the buyer is completely unreasonable.
Always be polite and professional with customers and take the time to answer all questions that may come up. Make sure to ask for comments and feedback before the customer submits their final review of your service or product. This will help to prevent negative feedback by providing a way to correct issues.
Never deliver your services or products late. If you ever need to, always compensate for the lateness by offering an extra bonus or other perks with the gig you have completed late.
Still, you are in a dilemma to register, then you please check my earnings here. When you finish a project and get the price money it will be locked for around 15 days. After 15 days it will be seen in your account. please check the 16USD in my account.
When you click on the withdraw money, a verification email will be sent to your Paypal email which you have added for withdraw. Check that instruction to withdrwa.
After this process when you check your Fiverr account, you will see a message that your withdrawal is now being processed, and may take a few moments. Within a minute you will get your money in your Paypal account with Paypal Commission deducted.
As a Graphic Designer myself I strongly recommend you fellow designer friends please register in Fiverr and earn a lot. It seems like a constant stream of money is going into my PayPal account. Fiverr takes $1 for every $5.
You can also increase your revenue by ” add-ons”, that is the advantage of the site’s ability to “add on” products or services for more than $5. For an additional $50 you can give the client the source files including vector formats like Ai, EPS, PDF & SVG.
add-ons are also known as packages, there are standard, premium & pro packages. You can set your package amount.
The site allows users to buy and sell $5 products, such as Graphic Designs, Digital Marketing, Writing & Translation, video & animation, music & audio, programming & Tech Etc.,
All of the services in Fiverr sell like hot cakes when promoted correctly. I recommend just heading over to Fiverr, search some categories and look for the highest reviewed gigs.
First and foremost, you should be able to meet the demand that already exists on Fiverr. After joining you must have to compete for your profile before selling your service because people wouldn’t buy anything from anonymous.
You must have your own profile picture or your business logo on Fiverr and a professional bio about you or your business.
Creating a Gig:
Getting buyers is actually a talent and only masterminds can do it well.To attract buyers on Fiverr it’s all depends on upon your Gig.A creative Gig in which your service is well explained with examples and portfolio can sell more than others.
Catchy Title is the thing that buyer read first on your Gig if the title is not so good buyer will not click on it to get more information about your service.
So here are some point to remember while writing a Gig title.
• Title should not be too long because the long title doesn’t show full on Fiverr’s home page.The title should be in a range of 60-80 letters.
• Cover only good about your service in the title.
• Grab buyers attention by adding some words like “Unlimited”.
Gig with no pictures looks like Dumb and will not attract any buyer.So to ensure your service to be sold, Please must upload at least 2 to 3 pictures.
You can upload pictures of your recent work done to show buyers that how good is your service but make sure your all pictures must be original.
Another thing you can do is to upload a video that is made by you on your service for Fiverr.
Video is recommended by Fiverr itself because according to them A Gig with video Sell 300% more than that of other. So give it try for Video.
Promoting a Gig for Sales:
After creating a Gig, promotion of that Gig becomes essential, Gig with no promotion will take no or very rare sales to you.
You can share your gig on social media to get people know about your service but this will only work if you have a huge fan following on social media.So the another way to promote your Gig is already inside Fiverr which is Buyers Requests.
Everyday lot of people make requests on Fiverr to find out great sellers. To get their requests just Go to “My Sales” and then click on “Buyers Requests”.
You can send limited numbers offers to buyers, only 10 offers you can send…! so make sure to send an offer to those buyers whose demands matches with your Gig.
Fiverr Sellers Level:
There are level badges on Fiverr which are Level 1, Level 2 and Top Rated Seller for sellers and this will be given to those who fulfill the requirements of Fiverr.
If your level is high more buyers will trust you and hence more sales on your Gig.
So Hurry friends give it a try for Fiverrrrrrr. Good Luck.
