Fiverr Review: We Become a Fiverr Seller – A Very Good Experience!
Part 1 of our Fiverr look was about the origins of Fiverr. We also discussed how network marketing entrepreneurs can make use of Fiverr’s services to their advantage.
We wanted to fully understand Fiverr and what it was like to sell on Fiverr. We opened a Fiverr account in November (all accounts are free).
We had our first gig posted two days later and we had a sale. It was an amazing experience. We have filled 36 orders, earned money, and are now a preferred “#1 Provider”. Although Fiverr is not a source of significant income, it does offer a platform for network marketing opportunities.
Selling on Fiverr: What Would You Do for $4?
The seller pays $5 for a basic gig. You make $4 if you sell on Fiverr. Fiverr takes 20% off the top so you’re actually only making $4 per gig. Okay, so why would anyone want to attempt to make $4 by doing something that may take real effort? Imagine if you had to spend 30 minutes doing something that cost $4. This is not the minimum wage.
How do you find yourself in such a massive database, especially when you are a newbie and have to be selected from the huge army of “Fiverr-ites”, who will try to beat you for a modest $4 (or less).
It’s not all bad news. Fiverr offers a forum, as well as many blogs via their customer service department. They also have a lot of information on how to get noticed and rise up the ranks. Your average gig once you’re established can be much more than $5. As we climbed up the ranks, we have more gigs that we can offer, up to $40 per gig. This is a great opportunity to make money.
The best thing about Fiverr is the chance to meet someone from another business, which can lead to alliances that are not possible with Fiverr. These connections can be very valuable. Some of those connections have been made and it has been worth the effort to sell on Fiverr.
It is simple to sign up to become a Fiverr seller. However, it is not difficult to get your gig started. This is where your writing skills can help you.
Fiverr’s Selling Success is About Your Copy-Writing Skills. There are only 1,200 words that you can use to describe your Fiverr gig. Your Fiverr title must be precise and accurate. You will also have the option to attach tags to your Fiverr gig. Be precise in your use keywords to be found.
A video can be as short as 60 seconds. This is crucial for your success. Fiverr claims that an “introductory video” can increase your chances of selling something 220%. Although we don’t know the exact calculation, we agree that videos can provide a valuable insight to potential Fiverr buyers that words and images cannot. If you decide to sell on Fiverr – use a video as part of your gig!
Fiverr claims you only have 80 spaces for a title, which is a problem when creating one. The system won’t allow titles beyond 50 spaces. Fiverr wants the titles to be manageable. With the amount of Fiverr members advertising, long titles would make it difficult for the results to be displayed. We’ll give Fiverr the benefit of doubt as they try to help you, a Fiverr member, to be concise.
The point is made clear – tell visitors what you’ll get and grab your attention. Although we would have liked to see more in our Fiverr title we had to sharpen our thinking so that we could focus on what we were saying. In the end, it is in everyone’s best interests to keep our headline short.
We stated that we see Fiverr’s selling experience as an experiment. However, the connections you make are well worth it, so any income we earn is a bonus. This is how we see it:
You should view your Fiverr selling experience with a longer-term goal in mind. You can learn from Fiverr how it works on the selling side and expose your skills to people you’ve never met. That is what network marketing and making money online are all about. Meeting new people can help you build future alliances and synergy in your network marketing business.
How much money can you make with Fiverr? As with network marketing, the “secret” is hard work, good copy-writing skills, and persistence to figure out what you should do.
You’ll see an increase in your sales volume as you get more gigs on Fiverr. You can increase your sales and receive additional benefits from Fiverr.
