Default How to get started on Fiverr

I have been reading posts and articles on how people have left their full-time jobs because of their successful, well-established Fiverr businesses. I am not saying that I can make this type of income but would sure like to make a fraction of it.

Simply put, how do I get started?

If you have some gig and think people might be willing to pay for it.
You can try it right away as you can start posting gigs immediately upon signing up with email, google+ or facebook account.

My advice play with the UI and see how and what other people are posting, get the hang of it and post your gig.

Default Level 2

I have been at level two for a little over year. Writing gigs are good, I also have a budgeting gig and an ebook gig that do well. Find your passion and something that works well for you.

I do not make nearly a lot of money to quit my day job

You have to promote yourself, constantly change your gigs up, and update the gigs that do the best to insure that they rank in Fiverr's search. I have been a top rated seller for more than a year there. I do not make a full time income on Fiverr but it does bring in a nice chunk of change to hold me over when private clients pay late.

For me I use it to sell my advertising spaces on my weight loss blog. I also use it to sell social media ads such as tweets and facebook updates.

It brings in about $150-$250 a month and for the time taken to put the ads up probably puts it at $50 an hour if not more.

I have about 9 ads up and three of them have a decent position on Fiverr and it was all about getting some good feedback and then I got a better position. I have never promoted the gigs, I have no videos to go with the gigs so I am sure if I made the effort they would sell more.

BUT I am lacking ad space on my site and couldn't possibly deal with the extra demand if I put in more effort!

I do notice that to be successful on Fiverr you need 1 of 2:

#1 - To promote outside of Fiverr
#2 - To offer something unique

I offered reviews for awhile, but now most of those services get deleted. I hardly ever get article work, but I HAVE gotten work to tweet. I have also written blog articles promoting new books or products to place on my own blog.

This is a big question.

I can give you some tips though to get you started,

1. Think quality, not quantity. In other words, produce great gigs, not 20 lame ones.
2. Use a video in your gig (helps with SEO and sales)
3. Use pictures (see above)
4. Brand your page with yourself. People like to see a face.
5. Offer upgrades.
6. Look what sells the most and do it better.
7. Promote your gigs everywhere (forums, emails, FB, twitter, etc).

Hope that helps!
