All of us have had a certain point in our lives when our regular jobs just wouldn’t cut it. Either that, or we were in those awful and neverending in-between-jobs periods.
We all know how hard that can be, especially if your savings aren’t enough to cover you for the next couple of months.
In those cases, we usually look for part-time jobs, and most of us are all aware that the Internet is also a place where you can make money.
Usually, that money isn’t serious and can’t make you rich, but you can earn just enough in order to pay the bills or to get through a tough period. However, there is a solution to that.
When Fiverr first came out, it marked an important point in the history of web-based businesses, as it gave an opportunity for millions to earn just by doing what they do best.
Fiverr today has a multi-billion dollar advertising campaign, so it’s really hard to find someone who hasn’t heard of it before. We were also aware of its benefits right from the start, and we have used it multiple times since.
The quality of the service sometimes varies, but all in all, if you’re careful enough, you can get exactly what you’ve paid for.
Fiverr usually sells services like photo, video, and sound editing, as well as content writing. However, the website isn’t only based on the aforementioned. You will be able to offer a range of different services.
Still, you have to be realistic and sell something that is actually worth five dollars.
How Can We Earn On Fiverr?
One of the most important things to understand when it comes to earning on Fiverr is the payment itself. We know — even the name suggests that you will be paid five dollars.
However, one dollar always goes to Fiverr. That’s their fee for providing the platform to everyone. So basically you will get only four dollars.
We tend to overlook the actual order that we’ve taken because we’re usually focused on earning more. That means that we should always pay attention to whether the order is doable in a reasonable amount of time.
Also, we always want to be realistic and only do orders that are worth that money.
Let’s consider an example. Let’s assume that you are a content writer, and someone needs an article that should have 1500 words.
It’s ridiculous to do an article of that size for only four dollars. Why?
Simply because it will take so much time and effort in order to write it. In that time, you might be able to do multiple easier orders for the same amount of money.
However, we are able to charge extra for our work. We can do that by offering additional services. For example, we can add an option to deliver the article in one day instead of a regular two-day deadline.
We can charge for that another five dollars, and if a customer wants it, they will be able to check it when submitting their order. We can also add an option for an extended word count.
That way, we will be able to be paid realistically for the service that we offer.
So above all, always make sure to only accept orders that are realistic when it comes to the five dollar price.
Multiple Ways to Earn Money
There are multiple services that we can offer in order to earn on Fiverr. It’s not just about editing with some software or writing. We can also further expand on those services and offer some extra options.
Let’s see what some of the things that we can possibly offer to our customers are.
Video testimonials are very popular on Fiverr. They are one of the top five best-selling services on the website.
If you have good diction and you look good on camera, you should definitely try this out.
Create Business Cards
Let’s get real. There are so many companies in the world that actually need professional-looking business cards. If you are creative and have the right software, you will be able to design them in no time.
If we like to writ, then we will be able to finish those 300-word reviews within minutes. It is a really easy way to earn, especially since reviews have become a staple when promoting products on the web.
People like to know beforehand what they are buying. So there are multiple clients out there who want their products to be presented in the best way possible.
Sell Pictures of Yourself
This is definitely one of the unusual ways to earn money on Fiverr, but it’s also the easiest. Believe it or not, for some reason, many people are actually paying for pictures of other people who are holding a customized message or text while standing near a landmark.
We can even charge more if we add options like choosing the location, our wardrobe, and the way the client’s personalized message is displayed.
Provide SEO Services
We can give full reports and charge more if our client needs extra details.
Fiverr is a great way to earn some extra money on the side. As we mentioned before, there are multiple ways that we can go when it comes to that.
However, once we get some experience, and also depending on the types of services we offer, we can even make a living out of it for the time being. Still, always make sure to never undersell your work and to carefully analyze every offer before you accept it.
