Most Important Questions About Fiverr

👉 What is Fiverr?

Fiverr is a global marketplace for buying and selling services for as little as $5.

Fiverr has 5 critical steps you must follow to be a successful freelancer.

Fiverr reaches far and wide on the internet and gives people access to a global network of sellers and buyers. Everyone can use fiverr to sell or buy services, from students and housewifes to professionals and senior citizens.

Various entrepreneurs use Fiverr to monetize their skills and talents and takes the stress off, of starting a business.

With Fiverr you only need to subscribe, create a gig and promote it. After that you will get orders from clients and do the work, very easy and it’s all free to do.

👉 Is Fiverr Legit?

Fiverr has been around since 1 February 2010. People on Fiverr have been making money with their gigs for years. If it was a scam, it’s definitely one of the longest running scams where everyone can make $100 a day.

👉 How Do I Create A Successful Gig?

  • Research
  • Outreach

Do your research on the category you are interested in or that you are good at. Check out which categories are the most popular and if it intersects with your interests.

Study the gigs of other people that are very successful and setup a Fiverr gig of your own.

Reach out to your social network to promote your newly created gig.

👉 How Do I Promote My Fiverr Gig?

When you create a new gig Fiverr will briefly list your gig at the first page or when someone is searching for gigs. The best places to promote your gig will be on your social media network and in forums or groups.

You should actively promote your Fiverr gig at all times. Never let your gig stagnate especially at the beginning of gig creation. Once you have orders of over a 100 you can slow down a bit.

  • Social Media: Promote or advertise your gig on your personal or business profiles.
  • Forums: You can ask for help on forums related to your topic and list your gigs for people to check out.
  • YouTube: Start a channel where you can speak about your experience you have with freelancing.

👉 How Can I Optimize My Fiverr Gig To Rank On The First Page?

Fiverr has an algorithm like everything else on the internet. Some of these algorithms include:

  • Being active on fiverr everyday.
  • Offer 24 hour gigs.
  • Being professional.

To be listed on the first page Fiverr has to see that your active on their platform and that there is a lot of interactions between your gigs and people (views, clicks, orders)

You have to do an audit of your gig to see where you need to improve and where the bottleneck is.

How to setup a fiverr gig the right way (step by step)

5 Critical Steps On How To Use Fiverr

  1. A seller creates a unique gig (service).
  2. A buyer search for a gig and order it.
  3. The seller start work on the order.
  4. The seller finishes the order and sends the work to the buyer.

So how does the platform work anyway? It works by connecting a buyer – who needs a service and/or product – and a seller – who provides a service and/or a product.

Let’s explain that in detail with an example.

A buyer, let’s call him Ken wants to hire a web designer for his new website.

Fiverr is his choice among all the other freelancing platforms. Ken completes his Fiverr buyer sign up process and does a quick search for a web designer.

fiverr sign up

The search brings up sellers – Jon, Angela, and, Peter – that included Ken’s searched keyword in their gigs.

fiverr gig search

Ken decided to buy from Jon. Ken is an experienced business owner, he knows what to look for, so he fills out the order form and instruct Jon on the specifications that he needs.

He completes the form makes the payment of $5 and waits for Jon. The fund is deposited with Fiverr.

Fiverr sends Jon a message. “You have a new order”.

He views the order and the amount, but he doesn’t have access to the funds yet. He can only access the money three weeks (21 days) after he delivers the order.

When Ken is satisfied that Jon delivered as promised he confirms delivery.

Jon receives another notification which confirms his earnings, see image below.

Both Jon and Ken are happy campers and will probably work together again.

Step by Step Process

  1. A buyer orders a service from a seller and pays the amount of $5 (a fiverr).

As a buyer you should check the sellers experience, response time, gig description and comments. If it gives you a picture of professionality then you should be good to buy.

fiverr gig

2. Fiverr holds the money in their account. The seller can’t access the money yet.

When a buyer pays for a gig, fiverr will hold that money until the order is marked as complete by the seller and accepted and marked as complete by the buyer. The seller won’t run the risk of buyers not paying for the gig and the buyer won’t lose his money if the order is not delivered.

fiverr money

3. The seller gets a message from fiverr that he received an order.

“You have a new order”

4. The seller start working on the order.

fiverr order

5. The order has to be completed in the time the seller specified in his gig.

The seller must complete the order within the delivery time, if he can’t manage to finish in time he can ask the buyer to give him an extension. It’s good practice not to take on more than you can handle.

fiverr gig packages

6. The seller finish the order and mark it as complete.

Try to finish the order ahead of time if you can to impress the buyer. Over deliver.

7. The buyer will receive a message from fiverr stating that the order is complete and ready for review.

As the buyer you should give a 5 star review to the seller if the work you was done correctly. If there is an issue with the work you should contact the seller first and try to resolve it. 5 Star ratings are very important in fiverr and anything less than 5 stars will severely impact a sellers sales.

fiverr comments

10. The amount of $5 minus Fiverr’s commission will be released to the seller after the buyer is satisfied with the work and mark it as complete.

And that’s it, quick and easy, but it’s critical to follow these steps to have a awesome and smooth experience on fiverr.

How To Promote Your Fiverr Gig Effectively In 2020 (10 Pro Methods)

fiverr portfolio

Today I’m going to show you exactly how to promote your Fiverr gig.

It’s really hard to get started in Fiverr when you have no reviews that buyers can measure you on.

In fact, this is the same process that helped top rated fiverr sellers to rank #1 from when they started out. The same process I’m following now.

Let’s get started.

  • Diversify your portfolio
  • Use friends.
  • Create a YouTube channel.
  • Create a Blog.
  • Social media
  • Forums.
  • Find your niche.
  • Build your brand.

Diversify Your Portfolio

If you’re struggling to get views it might be because you have only one or two active gigs in your portfolio.

It is a good idea to diversify your portfolio and create multiple gigs that falls in the same category, for example; classic logo design and retro logo design.

Both are logo design techniques, but they might resonate with different people.

fiverr gig heading

The pros on fiverr usually cast a wide net to catch more fish and it’s still the best way in promoting your fiverr gig effectively in 2019.

By having lots of slightly different gigs you will quickly see which ones are not working by checking the clicks and views in the gig tab. If one of your gigs gets more sales than the other gigs than recreate that gig over and over.

Another excellent strategy to use is upselling your basic package gig ($5) and make it an extra on one of your medium or premium packages which is a good cross promoting factor.

fiverr gig steps

Use Your Friends On Social Media

Everybody has friends and those friends have friends also.

social media

Ask your friends to support you by telling everybody they know about your gigs. NB >> Personal or social media friends are the best promoters you will find.

Social Media Engagements

Interacting on social media works the same as commenting on blog posts and forums.

This is a manual process where you have to be active in the relevant groups you get on Facebook, Instagram and Linkedin.

If your gigs are still new you are going to need lots of engagements. Contact the group admins and let them know that you can contribute to the group with your expertise.

Just remember not to be that cheap salesman. You are in the group to help others with their problems they are having.

Creating A Blog

  • Target Potential Clients

Decide who your audience is so that you can speak to them directly. Your blog posts are there to answer a question that people are searching for.

If you can help people by answering their questions and guiding them you will establish your name and they will start buying your product or service.

Your blog is there to give the relevant information about your service, but don’t make the mistake to sell yourself constantly.

  • Develop a Community

You can grow a community around the service you provide by communicating with people. Commenting and sharing is a great way to establish rapport. Nurture the clients that you have because they are your best promoters.

  • Leave Comments On Other Blogs

You can comment on blogs that are related to yours. When you leave a relevant and helpful comment, people will see you as an authority figure over time.

It is a great way to funnel potential client to your blog and ultimately your product or service.

Be sure your comment is relevant and do not put your blog or link in the comment. You will look like just another cheap salesman.

Ask the blog owner if you can link to your blog.

Posting On Relevant Forums

Posting on forums is almost like commenting on other blogs. Only post on relevant and high quality forums.

Forums can be the best place to get answers directly from experienced users like on the Fiverr forum.

Establish yourself as an authority figure and help people with their questions by giving them the best answer you can.

Quora Questions And Answers

Quora is a great way to answer questions people have. You can establish yourself as an authority figure in specific topics and send people (traffic) to your blog where you can sell your services to them.

quora forums

Golden rule is to try to answer the questions the best you can even if you have little knowledge about the subject, try to figure it out and tell people that your learning this with them.

Creating A YouTube Channel

Example channel

YouTube is a great platform to promote your services (gigs). You will lose out on allot of traffic if you skip this step. People like to watch videos more than reading how to guides.


Create a simple but informative how to video about your services on fiverr where you explain your gig and the benefits the client will receive once they buy it.

Remember, always try to answer questions people have and you will earn respect in your field.

Finding Your Niche

Creating a niche for yourself is more important than ever before. Fiverr’s main categories are very saturated.

Find your target group (audience) and see what they are asking for, look at their questions.

google search box

Go to google and type in your keywords about your service and look at the suggestions. These suggestions are search terms people type into Google to find an answer.

You can create your niche by looking at these google suggestions.

Look at the pages showing up when you searched for those keywords. Does it answer the question fully? Can you answer it better by writing a blog post about it and then send people to your gig?

Branding Your Fiverr Business

Once you figured out what your niche will be, you have to look at branding your business, your product or service.

branding fiverr business

Branding is important to show people that you’re a professional or very experience in your field.

Decide on the looks of your brand and design it. If you can’t design it yourself, you can outsource it on fiverr.

Put your brand on everything you own, for example:

  • Your Website or blog.
  • Your social media (Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin).
  • Business cards.

Make it look professional to establish confidence in clients of your abilities.

Your brand is you, the way you design, write, comment, your likes and dislikes etc. People will get a feel about you whether it’s looking at your blog or reading something you have written. Make sure your brand is about you and your abilities and skills and you will do fine building your business.

Know how to create a cover for an e-book? Sell that service for $5.00.

Just for the record…the intention of this special report is to show you tips, techniques, and tricks that will jump start your money making efforts.

HOWEVER, everything presented in this guide is legal, ethical, and will not get you in trouble when you implement some or all of the strategies presented here for making boatloads of cash!


Our first task is to create an account on

Step 1. Open your account on Fiverr.

You should see the home page of the site that looks similar to the following screenshot.

Step 2. At the top of the page on the far right side, click the word Join. The following pop-up box will be displayed.

Step 3. Fill in the fields for Email (a), Choose Username (b), ChoosePassword (c), and Are You Human (d)? Next, read and accept the terms of service (e) , and then click the Join button.

Step 4. Now you will see a page displayed with a message that says,

Step 5. Open your email account (the one that you just provided during the sign-up phase), and then open the message from that has a subject line that reads, Fiverr: Registration Confirmation.

Step 6. Click the confirmation link inside the email message.

Step 7. If you followed these instructions exactly, then you should be taken to a page on that says, ―Account successfully activated. Hey, this is a great time to edit your profile.”

Step 8. Now that your account has been set up, make sure that you store your user name, password, and the email you used for in a safe place. Most important is to remember your login information, which will allow you to gain access to your account the next time you’re online.

Congratulations! You’ve just completed the registration and sign-upprocess for Welcome aboard the site for success!

NOTE: Make sure to fill in all the fields in your Profile, including a picture of yourself or a graphic image that’s appropriate for your account. The editors at will promote you and your ads only when your profile has all the blanks filled in.

Now let’s explore numerous tips and tricks for creating a powerful ad that will draw people like magnets to the ―gig you’re selling.


Whether you’re in the market to pick up an extra hundred dollars this month, or if you’re looking at as a means for generating a monthly income, it’s absolutely essential to create an ad that will draw buyers to your gig.

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Attract attention to your ad by creating a high-quality digital image that’s related to the content of the gig you’re selling. Make the image colorful, vivid, and expressive. Don’t use small lettering. Choose a clearly visible image. It should stand out and draw the customer’s eye to the photo more than any other images on the page. Here’s an example of images that draws a lot of buyers.

fiverr gigs

Here’s an example of a poor quality image that doesn’t really represent or say anything about the gig being offered:

NOTE: If you don’t take the time to choose a clear and colorful image for your ad, you most likely will not make many sales. Images are very important. Customers are time-conscious, and will often scan the page, just looking for something that attracts them.

Again, your goal is not to spend money before you make money. But, if you’re not good at creating or selecting powerful images, then hire someone at fiverr to create five images for you for $5 (one image for each gig you’d like to offer).

2. Add keywords to the listing for your ad. This is important, too. On fiverr, they include the listing titles in a unique URL. This provides search engine optimization (SEO) benefits to each ad that you place on the site.

This also increases the number of views that you will receive for your gigs. The more views you receive usually goes hand-in-hand with more sales.

In addition, when you drive traffic to your ad through various methods (we’ll dig into that later), you will be using your unique URL that contains your keywords. Bingo! Someone typing in a keyword on a search engine just might land on your keyword-rich fiverr ad.

(That’s one of the goals!)

3. Create a clear title and description of your gig. Write a thorough and easy to understand description for each gig. If you’re unsure about how to write your title, search for other advertised gigs that are generating a lot of thumbs-up and comments from happy customers who have purchased a similar item.

You can check out my post on how to setup a fiverr gig the right way for a quick reference on gig setup.

Don’t plagiarize, meaning don’t steal their ad copy word for word. But take time to see how other successful ads were written, and then create a similar ad.

If copywriting is not one of your skills, then purchase a gig for $5 and have someone write 3 titles and 3 ad descriptions for you, using the keywords that you provide.

fiverr gig heading
fiverr gig description

4. State a realistic amount of time to deliver the product. Be accurate when stating the length of time it will take you to deliver the product or service to the buyer.

Get this wrong, and the negative comments will affect your ability to sell that gig in the future. But be realistic. If you’re backlogged with orders, put it in your ad that you’ll deliver within 2-3 days, or however long it will take you. Just make sure you deliver the product in the time frame you indicated in your ad.

5. Provide clear instructions to the buyer. If you do this correctly, it will save you hours of answering unnecessary emails from customers. Tell them exactly what they must do, how they should do it, and what they can expect. Then, if you do receive the same questions repeatedly, add another sentence or two in your instructions on the site.

The good part about using the ―Instructions to the Buyer feature is that their order is not finalized and submitted to you until the buyer has provided all the information you’ve requested.

fiverr gig requirements

The time it takes you to deliver the product or service does not include the time it takes the buyer to provide the information. You receive the order only AFTER the buyer has filled in the requested information.

NOTE: One of your goals, besides making more money, should be to process your fiverr orders within 5 to 10 minutes. This is how you will make the most money.

Yes, you might have to prepare a report or an e-book in advance, but then you can sell it over and over again.

The same is true when providing instructions to the buyer; you don’t want to continue spending 10 minutes answering questions for every person who buys something from one of your ads. When your instructions are clear and thorough, your transactions will be quick, and your customer will be happy.

6. Create a video to introduce your gigs. In the next chapter you’ll learn instructions for creating your own video.


Gig Videos is a bonus feature offered by It allows you to communicate with potential buyers through a video that you create and display along with your ad.

You can introduce yourself, talk about the service offered in the ad, and the benefits you provide.

In addition, using a Gig Video will definitely increase the exposure to your gig, not only on fiverr, but in the search engines as well.

After you add a video to your gig, your ads will display a play button, which encourages visitors to click on it.

fiverr video
fiverr video

In addition, you can use YouTube to promote your fiverr videos. Again, since Google owns YouTube, there’s a good chance that your fiverr video will be shown on page 1 of Google for your selected keyword.

Adding video to your gigs brings more traffic to your ads. More traffic results in more sales. More sales bring you more money.

According to, the following steps are listed on their site for adding a gig video.

How to Add a Gig Video

Adding a video to your gig is super simple. You either do that while creating a new gig, or just use the Add Video button in your My Gigs screen.

5 Steps to Add a Gig Video

  1. Record your video.
  2. Upload the video file (up to 50MB).
  3. Once your video is approved it will be available for public viewing.
  4. That’s it!

Let’s take a look at how other people have made their money after implementing a few simple strategies on This is what you can do, too.

  1. Create a simple (free) blog with photos that has ONE unique purpose with universal appeal. Then create a page on your blog dedicated to shout outs. What is a shout out? It is a two-sentence advertisement with a web site link that advertises a product or service. Where do you get the shout outs from? People pay you $5 on so they can advertise their product or service as a shout out on your site.
  2. Create a product that takes less than 10 minutes (consider an audio recording of you talking about a subject you’re an expert in) and sell it on fiverr for $5.
  3. Create an e-book cover graphic that takes less than 10 minutes and sell it on fiverr for five dollars.
  4. Create a 10-page report on how to do something. Sell the report over and over again on fiverr.
  5. After selling 10 reports as mentioned in number four above, take your profits, and create a Warrior Special Offer (WSO) on the Warrior Forum ( Stop selling the report on fiverr (WSO rules dictate that the price for a WSO must be cheaper than the general public at large can acquire the report) and sell the report to the first 25 buyers for $5 (which is more than you’ll make on fiverr). Sell the report to the second 25 buyers for $7.50 or $10.
  6. Buy a service on from a writer who will create three articles for you. Then create a new gig and sell two of those articles for five dollars. Put the third article into several article directories with back links to your account. Sell each article for $5 each.
  7. Choose a topic that you have a lot of knowledge about and create three, one-page ―How-To reports. Sell the three reports on for $5.
  8. Expand the topic that you just created in item above, and sell one of those reports for $5.
  9. Take a digital photo of a landmark in your town. Now take more pictures in the surrounding area close to where the landmark is located. Sell those five photographic images for five dollars.
  10. Find a gig offered on fiverr that will create a 3-minute video presentation of your business for you and have them post it on YouTube for just $5. This is very cost-effective, considering the quality of the video. Of course, you have all the rights to the video, which means you can promote the video wherever you like.
  11. Use fiverr as a promotional vehicle for your brand.
  12. Use fiverr as a portfolio to showcase your products and services.
  13. User fiverr as a tool for gathering endorsements and testimonials that you can put on your blog or website.
  14. Build your reputation with the thumbs-up system on fiverr. Customers are more likely to purchase a service or product from you when it’s obvious others have been pleased with your offerings. (Don’t be illegal and offer to pay people to ―Like your ad or write a testimonial for your gigs.)
  15. Use fiverr as a network for selling your everyday business services.
  16. Use fiverr to drive traffic to your web site or blog.
  17. Use fiverr to deliver a more expensive product as a backend offer after they have purchased your initial product.
  18. Redirect them to your blog or website to receive a free product that is similar to the product you’re selling. Make sure to capture the email address before taking a buyer to your download page.
  19. Here’s a great idea. On fiverr, look at the listings where people are requesting to buy a specific product or service. Then find someone on fiverr or an alternative site to create the product for $5 or $10 and offer it for sale on fiverr. Then duplicate and repeat the process.
  20. Still don’t know what product to sell? Here’s an easy method for making fast money. When you have 30 minutes to spare, choose a category on fiverr that appeals to you. Then scroll through the ads and choose one to learn more about it.

Is the seller backlogged with orders? Then that’s a good indication that the seller’s product is in demand.

Look for other sellers advertising a similar service, and see if you can purchase that product or service in a quantity of two or three.

Then create a new ad offering one of those items. To fulfill order requests, go back to the original ad and seller to place an order.

This is somewhat of a borderline greyhat area, but the buyer will be happy, the seller will be happy, and you will have delivered a product that gets great reviews.

Just make sure that you allow for a sufficient amount of time to deliver the product, since your delivery time depends upon someone else creating the product that you will sell. (Think of it like outsourcing.)

In the future, you can contact the seller and offer a joint venture agreement. You sell more of his product, he creates it, and you both make money. The advantage, however, is that he does all the work, and you collect money. Now how cool is that?


Inside of the site, the editors search the gigs on a daily basis for those ads that provide true benefits and value for their customers.

Is Your Ad Appealing?

If your ad has an appealing image, friendly descriptions, a great title, useful keywords, and your user profile has been filled in completely, then you’re more likely to get your ad promoted. One additional factor that the editors take into consideration is the positive reviews and comments from your buyers.

Featured Listings

Fiverr provides sellers with the option of featuring their gigs on the homepage of the site and on the first page of each category listing. Like anything else of value, featured listings require a fee. However, to make your ad appear before all others in its category, you will have to decide if it’s worthwhile.

Off-Site Promotions to Your Listings

Certainly, if you do any type of off-site link promotion to your ads, your listings could quickly receive more than 100 views in one day, which would create interest for buyers searching for your service.

NOTE: allows you to create only 20 listings. Keep that in mind when you’re creating new products and services that you would like to sell.


There are always several ways of looking at any type of online sale process when it comes to generating money from a product or service. One way involves sending traffic to your listing to make sales. Another way is to build a mailing list and send out an announcement that advertises your affordable product or service on

Let’s look at several options that are easily accomplished for someone new to the world of making money online and to the intermediate Internet marketer.

Each of the categories listed below require no money to implement. All that’s needed is your time.

Let’s get started.

If you don’t already have a  twitter account, you can sign up for one, for free, at  twitter. When you create your account, choose a user name and password, and then list the URL link to your ad that you want to advertise.

In the description box about what you do, write a short statement using one or two keywords that you’ve used in your listing. Be aware that when anyone searches on Twitter for a specific keyword, you want your listing to show up.

If you already have a account, then send out several tweets a day with some curiosity-driven statement about what you’re advertising on, and then include the URL link.

You can either ask people to follow you, or you can search for gadgets on the Internet that will generate followers for you. You can also find gigs on that will do the service for you

If you already have a facebook account, you can advertise your gigs in several ways and in several places on your page.

You can write something on your wall, or on someone else’s wall, about what you’re selling. You can also list your URL link in your business and personal information section.

If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can sign up for one at  Facebook. Make sure you add a photo so people can follow you and become a fan of your page.

NOTE: For security reasons, it’s probably not a good idea to pay someone$5 to create those accounts for you, since you don’t want someone to know your login information.

Maybe you have a friend or family member who could help you set up those two accounts. Those accounts will be responsible for sending you lots of free traffic.

You can use video marketing to drive traffic to your listing. Just sign up for an account at:  YouTube

By using a WebCam on your laptop or a friend’s laptop, you can create a quick one- to three-minute introduction video that talks about the product or service you want to promote on

If you don’t have a video recorder or a WebCam on your computer, maybe a friend or family member has one and you can ask them to take a quick video of you.

If you do a search on the Internet, you will find many sites that offer free video editing software. By editing the video, you can embed the URL of your listing on and add it to the bottom of the video.

Or, if both of those options aren’t possible for you at the moment, you can create a series of slides that transition one to the next. Then those slides that contain either text, or text and images, can be compiled into a slide show presentation video. You can also upload that to

Or, you can upload your graphic image of your product or service, and then download a product such as  audacity, for free from  HERE, and record a short audio advertisement. You can upload that as well to

Creating a video and uploading it to YouTube is free. However, if you choose to spend five dollars, you could ask someone to create it for you. Then all you would have to do is open up your account on and upload your video that promotes your listing.

This gives you an additional way to drive traffic. Point them to the YouTube video, which points to your listing.

Create Free Classified Ads

There are literally thousands of free classified ads sites available on the

Internet where you could advertise your product or service that’s listed on

Here are a few sites that you might want to try that provide good results:



If you are currently a member of the warriorforum and you have a sufficient number of posts, for $40 you can create a WSO that advertises your services on

However, please note that if you have never posted a special offer in the Warrior Forum, one of their rules is that the product or service that you offer must be priced lower than what it would sell for to the general public.

What that means is you could offer one or two of your products or services for a low price. As an example of your work, the quality, or perhaps the good reviews that you’ve received from buyers, will send more people to your listing.

More traffic is what the editors at notice, which could make your listing soar to the top of the categories.


Although most autoresponder services are not free, if you already have an account with companies such as,, or, then all you have to do is write a two paragraph blurb. Talk about the amazing service or product you have just created. Ask the subscriber to view your ad on

This will also give you more page views for your listing.

Paid Autoresponder Service Companies

The prices for these autoresponder services are not listed in this report since prices do change. Please visit the site if you are looking for a paid autoresponder service. Then check out how much it will cost to set up an account on a monthly or yearly basis.

Free Autoresponder Service Companies

Listed below are three autoresponder companies that do NOT charge for their services. In addition, if you are already paying for web hosting, sometimes your web hosting company will offer free newsletter services. Those are comparable to an autoresponder service they collects email addresses for you. You may want to query them to see if this free option is available to you.

The disadvantage to using a free autoresponder service is that usually when you send out a broadcast message, or a newsletter, it will be accompanied by advertisements selected by the autoresponder company.

You just want to make sure that the advertisements would not be offensive to your target audience.

The advantage to using a free autoresponder service, however, is that it gives you a place to start when you don’t have money to spend.


Although this might take you a little bit more time than placing a free ad or sending out a broadcast or a tweet on Twitter, when you join forums and chat groups with similar interests, you can work it to your advantage in a monetary way.

Free signature backlinks —Most forums allow the members to create asignature block after they have met and exceeded the number of required posts on a particular forum. The advantage of adding a signature block is that you can advertise your product or service just by commenting and adding a post to someone else’s entry.

In addition, many forums have a classified ad section, a work-for-hire section, and a services offered section. You can place your ad in any of those categories. The more places you put your advertising guarantees you more hits to your listings.

Internet Marketing, Work from Home, and Webmaster Forums

Here’s a treasured list of forums that you might consider joining and learning from. When you post your comments inside of these forums, your free signature backlinks that point to your product or service will bring more traffic to your listings.

People in each of these forums will click on your signature links.

If you are selling a product or service that is not in this category, then just perform a search on the Internet and look for forums that specialize in your niche market. This is a webmaster forum that has more than 25,000 active members. They discuss ways to make money, build links, drive traffic, and more. They also have a marketplace where you can buy and sell domains, web sites, and your services.

If there is one place where you should add signature backlinks to it would be this forum.

Just note that it’s a female forum, so if you’re not a female, well…

  •—Although this site focuses on search engine optimization, it is a great forum to gather information that you’ll need to promote and drive traffic to your listings.
  • The members in the forum talk a lot about monetizing your site, your blogs, and how to make money freelancing. A lot of newbies hang out here and they like to ask the experts questions and get answers.

  • Not as large as some of the other forums, this one is a general place where you can get a lot of questions answered about marketing, reselling, and dropshipping products.
  • This is one of the largest blogger forums on the Internet. It is a very active forum, and it’s a great place for exchanging links and getting and receiving guest bloggers to your blog.

I am going to show you how to setup a fiverr gig that all the top rated sellers on fiverr use.

Let’s get started:

  • Create a Fiverr account.
  • Setup your gig.
  • Create the gig image (clear striking image)
  • Create the gig video (a video explaining your gig)
  • Optimize your gig (SEO keywords: url, heading, description, tags)

Gig Title

  • Gig Title Generates URL

IMPORTANT! A Gig’s first title generates its URL. When you first create a gig and you choose a title make sure it is the best title describing your gig and has the relevant keywords in it, because you can’t change the URL later on.

When you decide to change your gig title later on, your url will still have a good description and will have all the relevant keywords. You can now change the title to be more readable.

  • Short Gig Title

Clear and concise titles perform better.

Use a verb after the “I will”; like create, do, write, promote etc. Make sure to include keywords related to your gig so that fiverr’s internal search and search engines can find and place you in the right category.

It is not critical to get every word perfect, but make sure that the words that describes your gig is being used in your gig title, search tags, gig description and even in your questions and answers section.

  • Simple Words

Fiverr is an international marketplace with people joining from non English speaking countries.

Choose the best keywords that describes your gig, but keep them simple. You can check synonyms of the same word on google that might be more understandable by non native English speakers.

  • Grammar and Spelling

It is very important to not make grammar and spelling mistakes.

Your gig title is the first thing a potential buyer will see, so when they see an error it will stop them from clicking on your gig. From the buyer’s perspective, if he sees an error he might think that your service will be full of errors too.

You can use Ginger Grammar software to help you with your grammar and spelling. It can show you grammar and spelling mistakes in any textbox as you type.


Fiverr gives you one word to capitalize to grab buyer’s attention. Think about the best word describing your gig or which word will provoke an emotional response from the buyer, example (definitely, exactly, excellent, expert, effective, stunning, etc).

  • Numbers in Title

Numbers are a time-honored trigger for buyers to pay attention to your gig.

Our brains are attracted to numbers because they automatically organize information into logical order and displays importance. In this example there is two numbers. The first number tells you that you will get 2 logos (bonus) and the second number gives a time. Always try to compare this numbers with other gigs on fiverr.

You can go to the advance marketing institute to analyze your gig title to receive a score, but don’t tress about a low score. The important thing is that your title should grab your own attention.

Gig Packages

Fiverr has 3 packages within a gig that you can use, basic, standard and premium. Your basic package is usually the test package where people can buy your gig cheaply to check out your skill level.

Once clients get to know you they will opt for your standard and premium packages. You can fine tune-tune your gigs as you deal with people and their comments.

Example: “Tired of gigs not boosting your website traffic like they promised?”

2. Description

Example: Do you want to SELL your products or services in a BIG way? I can rank your website on the top search engines.”

3. Bio

Show some social proof i.e. why they need to buy from you:

Example: “I have been in web development and SEO for 10 years working with multinational companies.”

4. Basic package

Make it clear what you get from the basic package.

Example: “You will get an on site seo audit of the main keywords.”

5. Call to Action.

Example: Buy my basic package and see your website reach top ranking.”

  • Video And Images

Fiverr has released statistics that Gigs with a video describing your service sell 220% more than those without.

You can create a video explaining your service by talking on camera. If you don’t like to be on camera you can do a slide show or use a seller on fiverr to make you a video.

  • Targeted Extras

Gig Extras is where you make your money. Upselling your client is key to a successful gig. See the gig extras as a complete package when you pair them with your gig.

  • Ask For Feedback

Given that most people won’t leave feedback unless prompted, try adding a postscript to each of your delivery templates asking buyers to leave a rating and comment if they found the Gig valuable. Fiverr don’t really like when you ask clients to give you a good rating so use this at your own discretion.

  • Offer A Guarantee

You can include a 100 percent money back guarantee on your Gigs. Be careful, however, cancellation stats are  publicly visible and can be a red flag both to buyers and sellers.

SEO (search engine optimization)

SEO is nothing more than putting your keywords in your title, URL, description, tags and gig picture. Search engines need these keywords to understand what your gig is about.

So that’s it, the fundamentals of a fiverr gig setup. If you follow these steps you are guaranteed a successful gig. Just remember to promote your gig everywhere.
