Make Money on Fiverr Seller Review - How I Made $700+ on Fiverr with (NO SCAM & Totally Legit) Part 1
Hello my name is Marvin and I am the owner of Everyday marvin reviews channel on youtube. Today I am going to step out of my comfort zone a little bit and do a good overall review of the make money online freelance website Fiverr. You may wonder what is fiverr and can you really make money online with it? Or is fiver is legit or a scam?
Well I am here to answer both in a very thorough way. I want this article to serve as reference for beginners, intermediate and even advanced online money makers. Primarily those who want to make money on fiverr website.
One of the biggest reasons being that you don’t have to invest any money to do it.
This will also be a beginning to a short series of videos I will be sharing about the freelance website fiverr.
I will be sharing not only my own experiences and advice but that of those who have been doing it WAY Longer than me and who have been leaps and bounds more succcessful using this platform for selling.
I will also share the resources that helped me and can seriously help you earn your first $1 online with fiverr and just make more period. These will be a couple of free and paid online resources with you.
So without further ado ….Let’s get started with
How did I get started in the first place???
Well to be honest since my early 20s I have been obsessed with making money online honestly. But I didn’t like sharing this information with family or friends because lets’ face it they generally give you that weird look.
They can say things like “that’s a scam” or “all that stuff is fake” or “you can’t make money online”. I don’t know about you but I am very sensitive when it comes to things I am personally interested in. If I get too much negative feedback I end up quitting.
So I primarily kept this interest to myself.
I had heard about fiverr but only thought of it as a place to buy random things. I soon realized that I could use it as place to sell my services and make some nice side money.
I decided to start off with selling a singing course I had created.
I had originally tried selling the course online on my on website, but I only ended up selling a few copies of the course.
I had heard about fiverr before just causally browsing around online. But I decided that I would attempt to sell a mini version of the singing course online for $5.
I had also started a youtube channel called Quick Singing Tips a couple of months prior which still exists and that I occasionally uploaded videos to. This was helpful as well.
Some things I did to Help sell my gig
One of the things I did to help sell it was to take the url or web address to my fiverr salespage and place it in various places I had content already.
For instance I used the video description box in the videos from my youtube quick tips singing channel to promote my gig on fiverr. This helped me pull in some sells. Mainly because once people saw the free content on youtube and found that it worked. They then became curious about how I could help them in other ways.
I also went on to twitter and searched for people with singing issues. I found these people who had questions on singing and answered their questions and provided free video tutorials from my youtube channel. This got more eyeballs on my fiverr link. This was all great targeted traffic.
I also had created an instagram account and uploaded mini versions of the youtube videos on it with the right specific tags that people were looking for relating to singing.
I would upload these videos several times a day and respond to those with questions about singing. As well as search for singing upload videos and give helpful advice.
I placed the link to my youtube channel on instagram and reminded others that I gave singing lessons as well. It got to the point where people who had seen my free content on Instagram and other places started asking if I gave singing lessons. I promptly directed them to my fiverr gig where they could easily buy it.
In a lot of ways it comes down to building a web of promotion with helpful solid content that people can use quickly. Once they put your advice to work and see that it works they are WAY MORE LIKELY TO BUY FROM YOU in the future.
Staying consistent with uploading content on instagram, youtube and various other places drew more and more attention until I started making more sells.
I even started booking skype singing lessons and making more money. This was the first gig to really help me make more regular sales on fiverr.
On my fiverr gig I simply offered “ I will give you instant singing lessons”. These were lessons I had already prepared on video and placed together in a zip file. This included several videos, singing tutorial audio files and a pdf. When a person ordered my gig I was sent a notification from fiverr and I would log in and respond with a download link.
This took no more than a few minutes. Then once the customer marked the order as complete I would receive payment in about roughly 2 weeks. Which I would then transfer to my paypal account.
It was very copy and paste for me.
MAXIMIZING MONEY PER CUSTOMER
Eventually I decided to start offering 3 different packages.
One was the starter pack with the basic materials
Then there was the Intermediate version and then finally there was the top package where I included an additional 25 minute live skype call tutorial with the customer.
The packages allowed me to offer something for everyone because frankly not everyone can afford the highest package. So There was the started at $5 and the intermediate at $10 then the top packagae at $25.
If you can do this I highly recommend going this route. There is a lot of money to be made this way!
I liked when they would go for the top package because it meant I could sell less and make more. I enjoyed doing the live lessons and this gave each customer custom tips and tricks to help their voices specifically. They felt like they were getting real value from one on one training.
Plus I got paid to do something I do everyday which is singing. I was happy too!
Eventually I had to stop offering the top package because I had less and less time available to do live lessons as time progressed.
I still offer the basic course and you can check out the link below if you want help with your singing from me.
I was making sells and getting more per customer due to the 3 level package deal I had going on. Generally 1 out of every 5 or 4 customers would upgrade to the highest package thus making me more money over time with less work
I still had my day job at this time and so this made me a nice bit of side money every month and no one around me really knew about my side gig.
HOW DID YOU FIND ME?
Another thing I did too was whenever someone would buy I would ask them how they found my gig and most of the time when they would respond they would say it was through the fiverr search itself.
This told me that I had set up a good sales page and that making a good sales page does matter. So using relevant terms in the sales description and the tags were helping me to get my gig shown more often. When people were looking for how to sing gigs or lessons.
I took a look in the fiverr search engine myself and I also didn’t have a lot competition when it came to providing singing lessons. So this also helped quite a bit.
THE REAL TRICK TO SELLING
ANOTHER thing I want to point out is pushing benefits over features
The gig I initially offered is by no way a traditional hot seller on fiverr. I wouldn’t recommend starting off with a gig like this. Mainly because there isn’t a huge market for it on fiverr for those looking or singing lessons generally. Plus if you want to make money faster and more of it and get to success sooner than here’s some better starter options to aim for or should I say in-demand gigs that have been proven to be hot sellers
The top sellers are things like:
Logo design, business card design, social media promotion,white board animation,web design,search engine optimization, and more
You might be interested in offering one of these services yourself and they have been proven to be profitable but I wouldn’t dare start without a little more background knowledge on how to best position yourself for success.
