In my quest to try a number of side hustles to find ways to increase my income, I've decided to try to make money on Fiverr. In this article I will give you a brief overview of Fiverr, some of its terminology and show how YOU too, could add this side hustle to your money making ventures.What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is an online marketplace where people buy and sell services. If you want someone to create a video animation this Gig could be for you, you will be able to find someone on Fiverr to do it for you. If you can design logos like this Gig, you could sell your services to someone on Fiverr. In fact, with the wide range of offerings you will easily be able to find something you could do to make money on Fiverr too.
Signing up is free and you must sign up in order to buy and sell Gigs on Fiverr.
What is a Gig?
A Gig is something that you will do for someone in exchange for money. For instance, if you are good at building websites, you can add a Gig offering your services. There are a range of Gigs available. You can pay $5 to have someone send out your URL to their 2000 Facebook followers or you could pay someone $20 to create some HTML code.
Gigs can be priced anywhere between $5-$995.
Within each Gig you can make additional money by adding ‘extras’. This could be things like faster delivery, extra designs or extra revisions.
For each Gig, you can also create 2 additional Gig packages. For example, if you were offering to design one logo for $5, your packages could be $8 for two logos and $12 for 3 logos.
Physical or digital products
Gigs can be either physical or digital products.
Promoting your gig
Your gig is promoted on Fiverr and you can also promote it yourself across your social media platforms.
