10 Common Fiverr Oversights

FiverrErors10 Common Fiverr Oversights

New to Fiverr?  You are not alone, suddenly we had a flurry of questions on our website. If you’re serious about making money on Fiverr (and I know your are), there are some very common errors you really want to avoid.

  1. Aiming at high competition niches is a big mistake. Why aim at something that everyone else is doing when you can be completely unique and corner your own market? Besides, do you really want to compete in a niche where sellers have awesome ratings and loads of positive feedback when you’re just starting out?

 

  1. Don’t skip the step of adding tags to your gig. Tags are what makes it easier for buyers to find your gig, so make it easy for them.

 

  1. Using unprofessional descriptions and wording can paint a poor image in the buyer’s mind. You really want your gig to stand out so the buyer trusts you’re serious about the service you’re offering.

 

  1. Don’t use bad graphics or poorly-created images in your gig description. If you’re trying to give buyers an idea of what you’re capable of creating, keep your thumbnails as clear as possible and make them look professional.

 

  1. Don’t ever exaggerate about what you’re offering or customers will feel as though you’re under-delivering on what they’re paying for. This is a sure way to get buyers leaving you negative feedback or a Thumbs Down in your ratings.

 

  1. Communication is key. Far too many newbies avoid communicating with customers. Always take the time to communicate directly with them. Give them updates on where you’re up to and let them know if you’re having problems. It helps to reassure them that their work is being done and they’re far more likely to leave positive feedback if you do.

 

  1. Once you reach level 1 Seller Status, you’re able to use Gig Extras. These are value-added services you can add to your base service for an extra amount of money. Don’t make the mistake of taking these for granted, as they could be worth a lot of extra money to you.

 

  1. Don’t make the mistake of not promoting your gigs. While there are always buyers searching the Fiverr site, you’ll get lots more orders if you promote your gigs elsewhere online as well. This might be on your own blog or in social media sites, but it all adds up to more people seeing your gigs.

 

  1. Don’t give up too soon. One of the biggest mistakes most newbies make is giving up on Fiverr too soon. It takes time to build up your ratings and your customer base, but once you’re there the orders roll in like clockwork.

 

  1. The biggest possible mistake of all is not making Fiverr fun. You have the opportunity to earn money doing things you find easy or fun. You’ll find it’s easier to stay motivated if you offer gigs doing things you already enjoy.

Making More Money on Fiverr by Increasing Perceived Value

Fiverr - Your Perceived ValueImprove Your Perceived Value

If your Fiverr gig isn’t getting a lot of attention and you’re not getting many orders, it could be because buyers aren’t seeing any perceived value from your offer. Many newbies to Fiverr make the mistake of offering too much for the money they charge.

You see, those customers you’re trying to attract want to see value for the $5 they’re paying. Unfortunately, there are also customers out there who would love to take advantage of cheap labor to get what they want.

This is where you need to walk a fine line between offering too much and offering quality.

Too Much for Too Little

Imagine that writing a 750 word article takes you thirty minutes. You put up a gig on Fiverr saying you’ll write a 750 word article that is brilliant quality and you’ll do it for $5. That’s a really low hourly rate, but it’s a start. Continue reading »

Getting More Traffic to Your Fiverr Gigs

ebookYou Need More Traffic to Your Fiverr Gigs

If you’re trying to make money with Fiverr, it’s important you find ways to attract new customers regularly. This is where you need to come up with ideas for driving traffic to your gigs as often as possible.

When potential buyers read your gig, they’re not going to instantly buy from you. Rather, they’ll check out who else on Fiverr is offering the same services and compare this to yours. They’re just seeking value for their $5, so that’s natural.

However, if your gig is getting no views at all it’s going to be impossible to get any orders. Here are some ways to get more traffic to your Fiverr gigs.

 

Catchy Headline

Yes, your gig’s headline can make a difference to your order rate. Fiverr lets you edit your gig at any time, so if you notice that your gig isn’t getting any attention, edit the headline a little and see if that helps.

Social Media

It’s fine to promote your gigs on social media sites. Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter and LinkedIn are great sites to use. You might also want to pin a graphic on Pinterest to represent your gig. Let people know what you’re offering and get your link out there. The more people that see it, the greater the chance of someone ordering from you.

Should You Bother with Fiverr to Make Money Online?

fiverrIs Fiverr Worth Your Time?

Despite the fact that there are lots of people trying hard to make money online, many of them turn up their noses at the idea of working on Fiverr. This is the site that pays you $5 to complete simple tasks for whatever you feel like working on.

The idea behind it is that you create a gig. In your gig you offer customers exactly what you’re willing to do for your five bucks. Be clear in your description about what you’re offering and it’s easier for the right customers to pay for your services.

If you’ve done it the right way, you should find that it only takes you a few minutes to complete each task. That means you could be earning an extra $5 every few minutes.

Of course, if you do it the wrong way you could find that you’re only earning $5 an hour.

Is Fiverr Worth the Effort?

Think about this. If you completed one gig before dinner every night of the working week, you would have finished five gigs. That’s a total of $25 in your pocket you otherwise wouldn’t have had.

For anyone looking for a bit of extra spending money, that’s not bad. This is especially true if you were smart about creating gigs that only take a short amount of time to complete.

Now, if you did the same one gig before dinner each night for a total of five gigs and you also added an additional five gigs on a Saturday morning, that’s a total of 10 gigs in a week.  That’s $50 you didn’t have in your pocket.

Of course, if you have more free time available you could always spend a few hours per day working on gigs. Let’s say you can complete 4 gigs in an hour and you only want to work 4 hours a day. That’s 16 gigs and a total earning of $80 per day. Over a five day working week you would have earned $400 at the end of the week. That’s not bad for only working 4 hours a day.

The whole point of these calculations is to show you that the effort you put into Fiverr is directly related to how worthwhile you find it. If you’re after some extra pocket money, it’s a quick and easy way to make money.

If you’re after a way to make a full time income online, it certainly can be done. Remember, the calculations we looked at here didn’t take into account repeat orders or the highly-profitable gig extras you can charge.

So before you give up on Fiver as a way to make money online, think again. There’s a huge amount of potential here – but only if you’re willing to jump in and give it a shot.
