INTRODUCTIONCongratulations! You have just taken the first step towardbecoming a profitable use of Fiverr. Having knowledge isuseless unless you are willing to act on the knowledge you have;buying this book is the first action you have taken towardapplying knowledge to your success!You are likely wondering why this book is different from otherinformation about Fiverr you have heard before. The methods inthis book are related to using only one kind of service whichconverts to another, more valuable, use which runs withoutmuch effort from you. Curious yet?Your goal is to make money through minimal effort andreplication. If you examine the system in place closely, you willfind several opportunities to do this.If you are looking for motivational speeches or fancy wordplay,you are looking in the wrong place. This book will get straightinto the specific actions you will need to take to earn money. Ifhaving a specific plan of action isn’t enough to make you beginto work, you may be in the wrong place.
SO WHAT IS FIVERR ANYWAY?I assume that since you bought this book, you already knowsomething about Fiverr. However, some of you may havepicked this book up out of curiosity, without any priorknowledge, so let me take a moment to fill you in. Fiverr is aweb-based marketplace that allows users to buy and sell servicesfor $5. Anyone can create a listing for a small service on the siteor purchase a service. The fixed price for any job is $5. A buyerorders services and is required to pay for it in advance.Services are placed into categorized by Funny and Bizarre,Social Marketing, Graphics, Writing, Technology, Business,Silly Stuff, and Programming. There is a place for buyerfeedback on the people who provide services, which helpsothers buyers choose which vendors to purchase services from.One dollar from each sale goes to Fiverr, meaning the vendor(you) make $4 per task. When most people hear about Fiverr,their initial response is skepticism. They either don’t believe youcan actually make money at it, or they make fun of the peoplewho do. Unfortunately, this lack of vision will prevent themfrom being successful on the site.Think about it for a minute, though. How many successful dollarstores are there in your community and in other communities
across America? How much money has McDonald’s made overthe years? The key to success isn’t the size of the sale you make,but how many sales you make and what the profit margin ofeach one is.I have noticed that there are many jobs on Fiverr that have beenlisted for a long time with no orders. Others may make enoughto enjoy an evening out a couple of times of month. However, Ihave also noticed that 15-20% of the jobs listed can makehundreds, or even thousands, of dollars per month.Of the 15-20% who are very successful, about 1% is WILDLYsuccessful, earning several thousand per month. The purpose ofthis book is to teach you to methods of that 1%. There are plentyof tips and tricks to help you achieve that level of success.Once we have covered the best way to earn as a Fiverr seller, wewill look to earnings as a Fiverr outsourcer, examining severalmethods for outsourcing. That is where the real money can beearned!A key principal as a seller or reseller on Fiverr is to generatemultiple income streams. Later in the book, we will go intospecifics about what that means and how to do it. First,however, we need to examine how to earn money as a regularseller/vendor. There are several basic rules you must apply tosee success.
THE RULES 1. You MUST upload a video for each listing you post. This is probably the most important rule of them all. Including a video makes a huge difference to the success of your listing. In your videos, be entertaining and engaging. This will make you memorable to the buyers. There are many, many listings on Fiverr. Some of them may even be better deals than yours. However, if you provide a video that is clear, to the point, and memorable, you are much more likely to get sales. Speaking well and using humor will increase the likelihood of getting a sale by about 75%. You should also mention Fiverr.com at least once time. Moderators watch every video uploaded, and having more than one mention of Fiverr in your video makes it more likely that they will place you on the first page. 2. Make sure your title is creative and eye-catching. Which title would you be more likely to click on: “I will sing a song for $5” or “PROFESSIONAL song by an amazing singer for $5”?
Be sure to use active verbs to say what you will do and include descriptive words. Fiverr has a policy that only one word in a title may be in all caps. Choose the word you want to capitalize carefully. You are trying to catch the eye of the buyer. For jobs you can do quickly, add “Within 24 hours” to your title. Sales should increase by 10-20% for this added perk.3. Use a custom picture on your listing. Fiverr requires you to upload a picture about the job you are listing, in addition to a video. Before posting a listing, use Photoshop, or even Paint, to create your own picture instead of using a generic picture you find online. Taking the time to customize will help set you apart from the people who just found some clip art online. If you can’t create something that looks professional for yourself, consider asking a friend to help you or even use Fiverr to find someone who can do it!4. Make sure your description is specific and well-written. When you write a description, make sure you include all the details of the job, instead of just making a general statement. This is your sales pitch; you want to explain
what makes your service better than the next guy’s, what exactly is involved in the service, and what the features are. The more professional you sound, the more likely you are to get a customer, so make sure you check your grammar and spelling. Even though buyers are only spending $5, they still don’t want to throw it away. If you take a little extra time to make sure your description is articulate and detailed, you will attract more buyers.5. Be an individual! It is unlikely that you will be the only one posting a particular service on the site. So how do you stand out from the crowd? Figure out what makes you unique. DON’T try to copy someone else who is successful on Fiverr; instead do one of the following things: a. Show the buyer that your service is better than the others and better to buy. b. Make sure you use the first four rules to stand out! If you consistently use the first four rules, even a service that isn’t particularly special will stand out from the rest and should bring in customers daily.6. List at least 20 services at once. Fiverr limits each vendor to a maximum of 20 listings at a time. If you don’t post at least that many, you are not maximizing your profit potential. Get creative and come
up with 20 things you are willing to do for $5. Even if some of them only get one or two orders weekly, you have established multiple income streams. (Remember that from the introduction?) A listing that only brings in $8 per week is generating $32 a month and just over $400 a year. Multiply this by 20…you just made over $8000 in extra cash! Remember, too, that every listing brings traffic to your page profile, meaning that your other listings will be seen by more people! Another possibility is having more than one account on Fiverr. If you have two accounts, you can post up to 40 listings, and so on. Make sure to list services in more than one category for maximum exposure. If you are seen in multiple categories, once again, you are driving more traffic to your profile. More traffic = more orders = more money!These six rules MUST be applied to every listing you post. Justdoing these things should help you earn $1200-$2000 per monthjust from direct sales on Fiverr. Not bad for a minimum of efforton your part!
SUGGESTIONS FOR GIGSGraphic design is a popular gig on Fiverr. Even if you don’thave any graphic design experience, you can make some cash.Offer to create a 3D e-cover for anything the customer wants.Then go to http://www.myecovermaker.com, a site that lets youcreate that very thing with only a few mouse clicks. The siterequires you to create an account which charges either amonthly fee or a one-time download fee. If you do several ofthese per month, you should more than make back what you payfor the subscription.Offer to create a social media profile for an individual or acompany. It doesn’t even take 5 minutes to create a profile andupload a company logo, so you are getting a pretty good profitmargin. Then you can offer additional products or services ontop of profile creation, such as uploading photos, writingcaptions, making regular posts, etc. You can make the sameoffer for creating a YouTube channel or a Facebook fanpage.Be sure to look at the “suggest gigs” listed on the right side ofthe Fiverr homepage. This is where people post when they arelooking for someone to do a specific job. You can pick up a fewof these a month without taking away from the 20 gigs youalready have listed.
If you already have a blog or a website that gets a lot of traffic,you can offer to sell advertising space on the site for $5 for aspecified amount of time. You can do this through Adspace ifyou like. Be sure you are prepared to show proof and detailsabout the traffic on your blog or site. This will often make adifference in whether a customer chooses you or the next guy.Offer to write articles for $5. There are lots of people makingthis offer, so make yourself stand out by including a link to yourportfolio. The only down side to this kind of gig is the amountof time it takes to do it. Figure out how many articles you couldwrite in an hour and multiply times $4. That is what you areearning hourly with this gig. Compared to other gigs, it mightrequire more work for less revenue.RUNNING ON AUTOPILOTUltimately, you want to design your listings to make money foryou without additional effort on your part. That’s called runningon autopilot. So how do you make that happen?First locate a good PLR product. (If you are new to the field,you may not know what that is. PLR stands for Private LabelRights. It means when you buy the product or article initially,you are also buying the right to resell it under your own name,without referring back to the original creator.) Make sure youchoose a high quality product. There are several websites which
provide lists of these products, so take some time to browsearound and find something of good quality. A little extra time atthis point will pay off in the long run. Try one of these sites: http://www.PLRAssassin.com (this site charges a small fee for access) http://www.indigialworks.com (completely free access) http://www.plrstore.com (also completely free access)You will have to invest a little money in the products initially,but you will quickly recoup what you spent if you choosewisely.Once you have chosen some PLR products, create a gig onFiverr to sell them.RESEARCH MATTERSBefore choosing your products, do a little research to determinewhat type of products sell the best. On the Fiverr homepage,filter the listings by popularity. That means the top sellingproducts will be at the top of the list.You will likely see that people who are willing to promoteproducts or websites on Twitter are very popular…meaning thatpeople are willing to pay for that service.
Go to the PLR sites and do a search for material related toTwitter. It may be software or an eBook, but if it something thatteaches people how to promote something via Twitter, it will belikely to sell.CREATING A BUYER LISTOnce you list your product on Fiverr, make sure you use alanding page with an opt-in form. This will give every customerimmediate access to the product (with no effort on your part!)by registering on the site. The information they enter willautomatically go into a buyer list, once again with no effort onyour part! Having a buyer list means you can notify these peoplewhen you offer new gigs. Repeat customers are always a plus!Always ask a customer to leave feedback. Positive feedbackmeans more customers. It is worth it to refund someone’smoney to avoid negative feedback.When a customer registers, set it up so they are redirected to aOne Time Offer Page which presents the buyer with a relatedproduct they may also be interested in. Be sure to create a largepackage for an incredible price, so it would be crazy not to buyit. For example, you might package a group of 3-5 eBooksrelated to Social Networking or Internet Marketing for $10 (oreven less). The key is to pack a huge amount of value into asmall price. The customer is already in buying mode, so there isa high probability that he will buy the OTO as well.
That means instead of making $4 per sale, you are actuallymaking $14, assuming your OTO is $10. Each product shouldmake at least one package sale per week, or $56 per month. Ifyou list 20 different products, that is $1120 per month with noeffort from you after the initial setup. (There are also other“microjob” sites where you can create exactly the same listingagain for even more revenue!)In addition, you are adding 100 new names to your buyer’s listper month, just from Fiverr. You can then use this list to marketother products outside of Fiverr, if you desire.OUTSOURCINGUsing the 6 rules to make money on your listings is a great wayto make extra money, but if you are interested in making BIGmoney, you need to learn about outsourcing. Some internetmarketers are now making thousands a month through Fiverrselling and outsourcing.There are five methods that will help you make some seriousmoney. The step by step instructions for these methods are next!Method #1: Twitter and ClickBankClickBank is a website that allows you to sign up to promoteproducts for other people to earn income, referred to as affiliate
marketing. If you are unfamiliar with ClickBank, go check it outbefore reading further.Now that you know at least a little about ClickBank, let’s talkabout how you can be a legitimate Fiverr outsourcer. Step 1: Choose a product on ClickBank that can be easily promoted to the general public. Step 2: Copy the affiliate link provided; then go to bi.ly to make a shortened version of the link. Step 3: Copy and paste the shortened link. Step 4: Visit the “Social Marketing” section on Fiverr and look for listings like “I will tweet to my 10,000 followers for $5” or something similar. Purchase about 5 of these. Step 5: Send the vendor the shortened URL with a promo phrase like “WOW! Can’t believe how much weight I lost thanks to bit.ly/55555.” (Change this to fit whatever product you chose.) The vendors will send this link and phrase to all their followers. Step 6: Watch the money flow! A single sale may bring in hundreds of dollars and you have spent only $25 to make it happen!
Method #2: Facebook LikesFacebook Likes are a hot commodity. Many people on Fiverrwill provide Facebook Likes for far less than market value. Forexample, there are websites that will sell 1000 FB Likes for $80,but on Fiverr there are vendors who will give you 500 FB Likesfor $5. That shows that there is a definite profit margin.Find a domain name that is related to Facebook Fans orFacebook Likes. Use a basic Wordpress template to set up abasic site explaining that your company does Facebookmarketing. Set your cost (above $5) and set up your website.Your website should generate several hundred dollars per week.After 2-3 months of a profitable website, you can list thewebsite on Flipa and sell it. You will likely be able to sell it forseveral thousand dollars. Just be sure to reinvest most of themoney back into you IM career!Method #3: BacklinksThere are tons of gigs on Fiverr offering to submit your websiteor blog to search engines and to create backlinks. Google lovesbacklinks, so spending a little money here should more thanpayoff in results from increased traffic to your site, where youcan sell visitors your products. WARNING: Be sure you ask forproof that the vendor actually did what they said and get contactdetails before sending your $5.
Method #4: Facebook StatusesIn one example, a vendor has offered to post a link to your site 3times on their Facebook page. That doesn’t sound like muchuntil you realize the vendor has 82K fans on his page. Youshould see a definite improvement in your traffic from this one!You can also ask them to post an affiliate link for ClickBank.You can do all sorts of creative things to increase sales on yourother sites like this, without having to do anything yourself!Method #5: Graphic Design and VideoIn the Graphics section of Fiverr, you will commonly find logos,templates and banners. If you buy them, then mark them upanywhere from $5 to $500 and resell them to larger companiesby being able to deliver quickly. A big money maker is sellingshort video clips made on Adobe AfterEffects to clients for $500or more. You should be able to get 3-4 clients a month for thesevideos.Graphics and logos can be sold for over $150 each. They areeasier to resell than the videos, and also have a great markup.Create a basic website and use SEO techniques to get goodrankings.(Since this book is about Fiverr, I won’t go into great detailabout how to do this. I am assuming that you probably alreadyknow these basics.)
Method #6: YouTube Subscription SalesThis is the same idea as the Facebook Likes. Use the samemethod, but when you sell the website on Flippa, you can expecta much higher return, especially if you can show good profit for6 months.Method #7: Testimonial AgencyA very creative way to use the wealth of talent on Fiverr is tocreate your own Testimonial Agency, using the people whooffer to make video testimonials for $5. You create a companythat will offer to provide companies with dozens of videotestimonials tailored to their product or service at a bulk price.You can charge as little as $300 or as much as $800 for this,depending on how many testimonials they need.Method #8: ArtAgain in the Graphics section of Fiverr, find a graphic designerwho will create a piece of vector art for $5. (It is very importantthat it be VECTOR, so you can resize the piece without losingresolution and clarity.) Some designers specialize in one type ofart (mascot design/characters, for example), but many will offermore variety.When you buy the digital piece from the designer, you also buythe copyright. That means that you can replicate the piece in anyway you desire. You can make much more money through
replication than through selling the piece to a company at amarked up price.The value of art is only what a buyer sees in it. If you present itcorrectly, you should see a good return on it in many forms. Youcan sell it in the form of t-shirts and other clothing, mugs,posters, calendars, magnets, or as a framed print. Let youimagination run wild!Be sure to ask for vector files or high res raster files, so you canblow up the piece to any size you need.You can set up an online shop and upload your designs onseveral websites with very little trouble. Try http://shop.carepress.com http://www.greatincarduniverse.com/BEDiczhazy http://www.zazzle.com/dndartstudioto start.How do you decide what kind of design to do? Obviously, youwant something that will sell easily. Parody is often popular anda good way to get started. Under parody, you can legally sellimages that refer to and use famous people (for example, acaricature). Just do your homework to make sure there is acurrent demand for the topic and that you are not breaking anycopyright laws.
If you use a person’s image which is not parody, you areinfringing on copyright law. Parody is fun, which people want,and doesn’t break the law. As an added bonus, many of thegraphic designers on Fiverr are very good at it!Framed prints are usually higher priced items, so think abouttargeting a specific niche with a framed print. Buy a variety ofimages from the designers on Fiverr so that you can have avariety of items to choose from in your store.One of the most important things to consider with this method iswhat kind of images are trending currently. If your images arenot currently hot, they won’t sell well. Work on tapping intofads.Method #9: Ebay and other auction sitesOnce you have products to sell, you can venture onto sites suchas ebay. Copy the preview images from your store oncafepress.com or zazzle.com so you can show them as productsthat are ready to ship.You can grab your images off the site in one of two ways. First,try right clicking on the image and choosing “save image as…”.Some sites don’t allow this method, so you will need to open thesite, and then press “prt scr” to take a screenshot. Then crop theimage to the portion of the page you need using a graphicsprogram and upload it to ebay or another auction site.
If you use Windows 7, you can also use the snipping tool tocapture the image from your online shop.This can be advantageous because your product isn’t buried in ahuge list of other products that are very similar.When you receive orders, simply enter a personal order on themanufacturer’s website and enter an alternative deliveryaddress.Method #10: Sell PLR reportsReports addressing problems in the health, wealth, andrelationships niches are the most likely reports to sell. You cancheck out some of the reports on Tradebit.com for ideas.Buy a few that seem to answer a common problem, such asweight loss (always a popular topic). Then create a listing thatpromises to help solve that problem for $5.For example, you might say, “I will send you dozens ofSECRET recipes that will help you lose weight fast!”When you receive an order, simply attach the file in the Fiverrdelivery screen and send it off.
