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

Congratulations! You’ve just completed the registration and
sign-upprocess for fiverr.com. 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 fiverr.com 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.
CREATING YOUR GIG
Whether you’re in the market to pick up an extra
hundred dollars this month, or if you’re looking at fiverr.com 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 digitalimage 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
CREATING AN INTRO VIDEO
Gig Videos is a bonus feature offered by fiverr.com. 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.
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 fiverr.com, the following steps are
listed on their site for adding a gig video.
How to Add a
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
Record your video.
Upload the video file (up to 50MB).
Once your video is approved it will be available for public viewing.
TWENTY MONEY-MAKING METHODSON FIVERR
Let’s take a look at how other people have made
their money after implementing a few simple strategies on fiverr.com. This is
what you can do, too.
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 fiverr.com so they can advertise their product or service as a shout out on your site.
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.
Create an e-book cover graphic that takes less than 10 minutes and sell it on fiverr for five dollars.
Create a 10-page report on how to do something. Sell the report over and over again on fiverr.
After selling 10 reports as mentioned in number four above, take your profits, and create a Warrior Special Offer (WSO) on the Warrior Forum (warriorforum.com). 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.
Buy a service on fiverr.com 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 fiverr.com account. Sell each article for $5 each.
Choose a topic that you have a lot of knowledge about and create three, one-page ―How-To reports. Sell the three reports on fiverr.com for $5.
Expand the topic that you just created in item above, and sell one of those reports for $5.
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.
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.
Use fiverr as a promotional vehicle for your brand.
Use fiverr as a portfolio to showcase your products and services.
User fiverr as a tool for gathering endorsements and testimonials that you can put on your blog or website.
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.)
Use fiverr as a network for selling your everyday business services.
Use fiverr to drive traffic to your web site or blog.
Use fiverr to deliver a more expensive product as a backend offer after they have purchased your initial product.
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.
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.
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
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
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 Fiverr.com 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.
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.
Promotions to Your Listings
you do any type of off-site link promotion to your fiverr.com ads, your
listings could quickly receive more than 100 views in one day, which would
create interest for buyers searching for your service.
NOTE: Fiverr.com 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.
PROMOTE THAT GIG… FOR FREE!
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

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 fiverr.com 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 fiverr.com
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 twitter.com account, then send out several tweets a day with some
curiosity-driven statement about what you’re advertising on fiverr.com, 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 fiverr.com 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
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 followyou 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 fiverr.com.
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 fiverr.com and add it to the bottom of the
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 YouTube.com.
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 YouTube.com.
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 YouTube.com and upload your video that promotes
This gives you an additional way to drive
traffic. Point them to the YouTube video, which points to your fiverr.com
There are literally thousands of free classified ads sites available
Internet where you could advertise your product
or service that’s listed on fiverr.com.
Here are a few sites that you might want to try that provide good
If you are currently a member of the warriorforumandyou have a sufficient number of posts, for$40 you can create a WSO that advertises your services on Fiverr.com.
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 fiverr.com buyers, will send more people to your listing.
More traffic is what the editors at fiverr.com notice, which could make your listing soar to the top of the categories.
autoresponder services are not free, if you already have an account with
companies such as aweber.com, getresponse.com, or trafficwave.com, 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

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.
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
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 fiverr.com listings.
