Edited by Ronniel Javier, Lynn, Charmed, Anonymous and 20 others

Fiverr is one of the biggest marketplaces you can use to sell your services or virtual goods online. The cost for services or virtual good available starts at $5, hence, its name. There are more than 2 million amazing services offered on their site. Fiverr is the best place for people who want to earn money by offering their unique services for an affordable price. A buyer and a seller may choose different categories for the buy and sell services, and digital goods, but if you're just starting selling your services or digital products, it's very difficult. It can be pretty frustrating to get your first sale in Fiverr, because buyers are often looking for a high rating, and a good reputation from an experienced seller. Always have hope, though. Let's get started.

Instructions

  1. 1
    Add your profile picture.
    Adding a picture to your Fiverr profile is very important, as it shows your buyers that you are a legit seller. Many people won't purchase a gig or product from someone without a profile picture. It makes people suspicious. Make sure you choose nice picture, with an honest and open expression.

  2. 2
    Get your first sale.
    Before you can earn more sales or orders from Fiverr buyers, do your best to get the highest rating for your gig. This can be accomplished by making sure your first sale earns you a 100 percent positive feedback. Buyers will not hesitate to order a gig from you if you've already received positive feedback. You can also get your friends and/or family to help out, to get your first gig sale, and ensure positive feedback. That'll help you get started.

  3. 3
    Know your skills.
    Be well informed about your skill, and it will make it easier for you to pick a category appropriate for your services. For example, if you are good at creating motion graphics using Adobe After Effects, then you can create a gig offering a good intro video presentation to your clients. If you are good in SEO and you have the ability to rank any keyword in the Google search engine, then offer your gig services in the SEO category. If you are good at writing web content or articles, then offer something more affordable, like providing two articles with 500 word counts for $5. You will begin to discover your potential to serve more clients in Fiverr.

  4. 4
    Add a detailed description of your gig.
    Adding a long description of your gig is better than a short or concise description, because you are actually showing your willingness and dedication to providing a gig or services. Make it long and informative, and even include FAQ's.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  5. 5
    Add video.
    You can add video to your specific gig page to explain how your service works.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  6. 6
    Look at your sales analytics every day.
    Right at the top of your navigation menu, click your sales, and from the right side, click "Analytics". Look at your views or impressions, gig clicks and your CTR or click though ratio. Examine your analytics and you will probably see the bounce rate of your gigs. From that information, you can learn how to improve the description of your gigs to be more informative and attract more buyers. You will be able to figure out why you have a low gig conversion.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  7. 7
    Improve the keywords on your gig.
    To make your gig stand out and to get more exposure to your gig service, you should improve your keywords. To do this, copy the keywords of the same gig service you offer, from a top seller. Put your keywords in the description and avoid over-stuffing.

  1. 1
    Check the demand for your chosen gig.
    If you really want your sales from Fiverr to skyrocket, you have to be strategic when choosing a particular gig to offer. The Fiverr gigs that are high in demand are logo design, website design, Wordpress troubleshooting, article writing, transcriptions and voice-over gigs. You should definitely offer a service that will suit the needs and wants of your target market. Likewise, do not limit your options to the services or gigs that most Fiverr contractors are offering. Be creative and think of a gig that you rarely see being offered on the site, but will be appealing to the buyers. Understand what your prospective Fiverr buyers want, and think of ways to offer it to them.

  2. 2
    Exude a professional image.
    Even if the tasks are not worth that much, make sure you present yourself as professional and mature. Always remember, you are not the only Fiverr gig seller there. Place yourself in the shoes of a prospective buyer so you can effectively manage your expectations. Make your profile is professional-looking. Once you exchange conversations and messages with a prospective buyer, be professional, respectful and accommodating. Regardless of the price tag on your gigs, the buyer is still your customer, and you must treat a customer with respect.

  3. 3
    Create catchy and interesting titles.
    The titles of your gig are synonymous to your clothing. They create the first impressions. If the title of your gig does not stand out, it will be difficult to attract Fiverr buyers to even click it and read the description. Your title is your entrance. By making it catchy and inviting, you will grab the buyer's attention. It's also highly recommended to make your title very specific. Your title should include how much time you will be able to complete the gig so the buyer will feel you are really serious about offering this gig.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No | I need help

  4. 4
    Create gig descriptions.
    If you have a catchy title, you could still lose your buyer's attention with a boring gig description. With the description, you can be as creative as you want. While the title is the lure to draw your buyer in, the description should close the deal.

Tips Tricks & Warnings

  • Be patient. Don't give up on selling your gigs in Fiverr. Be patient and wait for the time you receive your first order. That's when things will start happening.
  • Visit your Fiverr account regularly. You need to visit your account every day to stay active. Buyers don't order inactive gig services.
  • Sell Private Label Rights products. If you don't have any skills to offer in Fiverr, you should try to buy and compile PLR articles and ebooks. Upload them to your file hosting account, and when someone orders from you, just give your download link.

Questions and Answers

How to fix lots of impressions and clicks but no sales on Fiverr?

This only happens when you are either selling fake links or most of those clicks were fake. Perhaps your product is beyond what they expect to see or to need. As an internet marketer, you must always update your sales and improve them more and more to heighten interest in your product or gig, and convert all those clicks into sales. Of-course you can't just brag about your sales, if your title or sales page creates a good impression, then you must make a strategy to sell your gig or product and profit from this venture. Make sure you are not in a saturated field on Fiverr, as this could inhibit your sales. When weighing options, clients will look for those with good feedback rather than just a good sales pitch.

  1. 1
    Make Them Unique.
    To be able to sell more gigs on Fiverr, you need to make them unique to you. Perhaps there are already gigs selling page translations of text to English, or offering English lessons using Skype.

  2. 2
    Make Them Professional.
    Another way of making money on Fiverr is to give yourself a professional look. Find a way for customers to see your gig's page; otherwise they will give negative feedback and won't buy from you. Your customers should always be treated in a professional manner and you should make sure they are satisfied. Makes sure all your posts have correct spelling. Don't rely entirely on spell check, that won't catch there, they're, their, wear, where, to, two, too �" etc. Make sure the grammar is correct. If need be, get someone to help you. Bad spelling and grammar will turn off many potential customers.
