Fiverr has exploded in popularity and presents itself as a great side hustle. You can list your services on Fiverr and start attracting customers.
Not only can you find a bunch of great services as a buyer, but as a seller, you can make a full-time income from Fiverr alone. One Fiverr seller has made $1.5 Million from Fiverr so far.
While $1.5 Million would certainly be nice, most Fiverr sellers don’t make that type of money. For them, momentum within their own sales is more important than the promise of possibility. You can make over a million dollars on Fiverr, but going from $0/mo to $100/mo on Fiverr and building from there is how you hit bigger milestones.
If you want to start making money from Fiverr and turn it into a lucrative side hustle, use these 5 strategies.
#1: Create More Gigs
The more gigs you create, the more potential customers you can attract. Customers who enjoyed your work from one of your gigs may buy a different gig from you in the future. Fiverr allows you to create up to 5 gigs at the lowest level, and you can create additional gigs as you gain more experience on the platform.
If one of your 5 gigs doesn’t perform well and you don’t have a sufficient seller’s level to support additional gigs, you may want to unpublish one of the underperforming gigs and put a new gig in its place.
#2: Tell Your Audience About Your Gigs
While you can get customers from Fiverr’s search engine, you should share your gigs with your audience. Sharing gigs with your audience generates momentum and can help you gain traction on Fiverr’s algorithm.
Eventually, Fiverr will kick in and you’ll get a steady stream of customers. When this happens, tell people about your offers off of Fiverr so you keep the 20% cut Fiverr would normally get.
It’s well worth giving Fiverr 20% of the proceeds when they bring in the customers, but once you’ve built momentum, create your own sales pages and lead your existing customers to those sales pages rather than Fiverr.
#3: Pay Attention To Popular Gigs
Naturally, some Fiverr gigs do better than others. Pay attention to how Fiverr gigs in your industry perform and look for the winners. Creating gigs that complement or are similar to the top Fiverr gigs will give you a better chance of gaining traction.
I suggest a blend of Fiverr gigs around topics that are in heavy demand (and likely heavy supply) with some of the more niche topics that have lower demand but significantly lower supply.
#4: Offer Add-Ons
Fiverr used to be a place where you paid $5 for a task to be performed. Now you can make $100s from a single order .Including add-ons to your individual gigs will increase the average purchase price of the customers you serve.
Add-ons will vary based on your gig and which services you offer, but almost everyone can provide an add-on that delivers the order 1 day faster in exchange for an extra $5 or more depending on the intensity of the project.
#5: Look At Your Data
Your Fiverr analytics will give you a better idea of how people engage with your gigs. You can see which gigs convert at the highest rate, get the most impressions, and the most clicks. This can help you decide which gigs to focus on and what gigs you create in the future.
The analytics you get from your gigs is very basic which allows you to quickly get important data without diving too deep into the numbers.
Pay attention to how each of your individual gigs performs and adapt accordingly.
