If you are not a stranger to Fiverr, you’d know it is a highly competitive online marketplace. Every day, sellers with similar skills try to outdo each other in the requests they send to buyers, hoping to land a cool gig.
On Fiverr, you can sell your services for as low as $5 and as high as $1000. The higher your level is on Fiverr, the more chances you have to get a higher paying gig. Your level on Fiverr grows alongside your earning, the timeliness of your delivery, buyers’ review and so on. It can be quite challenging to get to the highest level on Fiverr, especially when most of your gigs go for $5 to $20 and buyers are merely trickling in, what with Fiverr’s ever-changing algorithm. However, it is not impossible—many Fiverr users have made millions solely from Fiverr and you can too.
Here is how you can become a profitable seller on Fiverr:
Pick A Less Competitive Niche
Some services on Fiverr are more competitive than others. Services like copywriting, graphic design and video spokesperson are really competitive, although very profitable. To easily get sellers on Fiverr, you can either carve out a niche for yourself under one of the competitive gigs (being a resume writer for instance) or you can introduce a niche people will benefit from and that you are good at. Teaching people how to choose a low competition niche for their dropshipping business, for instance, is a gig that will sell on Fiverr—Warriboy’s Fiverr profile is proof of that.
Showcase Your Qualifications
If you are new to Fiverr, take that profile description part of your Fiverr account very seriously. Since you are yet to get reviews from buyers about your skills, let people know exactly what it is you can offer them. List your education and your credentials so that people will know that you are a professional.
Set Up An Attractive Gig
The shorter your gig title is, the better. Short gig titles are usually catchier or attention-grabbing. Your gig title should contain keywords that people mostly search for, you can check the profile of top Fiverr sellers for inspiration.
After you are done creating a catchy gig title, the next thing is to write a detailed gig description. Your gig description should convince your prospective customers to do business with you. Don’t fail to upload videos and images that will describe your gigs better. A statistic released by Fiverr showed that gigs with a video description are more profitable than those with none.
Diversify Your Services
Don’t limit yourself to a single $5 gig. As a new seller on Fiverr, you have the option to create up to 5 gigs on Fiverr, each can have up to three different price packages. Aim to create gigs that are inter-related and make your price packages appealing to buyers.
Make Sure Your Client Is Happy
This is very important. Your success on Fiverr highly depends on how happy and satisfied you leave every one of your clients. Happy clients will always leave good feedback that will attract other buyers to your gig. Also, if a client is happy, nothing will stop them from coming back to you for more.
