Fiverr is a great place to make money from home.  If you’ve never heard of it, it’s an online market place where anyone can sign up and sell and buy services, known as ‘Gigs’ from $5 upwards. Trust me, there will be a Gig that you can sell on Fiverr to make money.

DON’T PANIC if you can’t do any of these. This is just a tiny example. There are many many more Gigs created and sold regularly.  To get an idea, browse around and take a look at the type of products and services people are selling.  Some are just plain crazy and some are so simple, anybody can do them.

Plan Your Gig

To get started, you need to plan your Gig. The key here is to let your imagination run a little wild and see what you can come up with.  Make a list of skills that you have or ideas you could use and run some searches on Fiverr to see who else is doing something similar, how much they charge, how many reviews they have etc.  This will give you an idea whether there is a market for your product or service.

Don’t worry if somebody else is already selling the service you want to sell, that’s a good sign that there’s a market for it.  You just need to make sure you stand out from the crowd.

Think about what you are good at or what you are interested in.  If you feel you have no skill, then learn one.  There are so many Youtube tutorials available these days that will teach you a skill in no time.  That being said, many of the Gigs on Fiverr  don’t require much skill at all so it really is open to everybody.

Once you’ve taken a look around Fiverr, familiarized yourself with the Platform and set up your free ad, it’s time to get started.

At this point, if you are still unsure of where to start, you can learn from someone who is already making big money on Fiverr.  This is something I always do, learn from someone who is already doing it!

Create Your Gig

Once you have decided on what you want to sell then it’s time to create your Gig.  Keep your title short but punchy and carefully choose your words for your Gig title.  Here are some good examples of the type of title you should think about:

  • I will create 3 amazing Pinterest graphics for you in 24 hours.
  • I will create a professional CV to help you land your dream job.
  • I will create a stunning line illustration.
  • I will create the perfect instruction manual for your product.

Create Your Gig Image

If you take a look through the Gigs on Fiverr you’ll see that some images stand out better than others.  Use these to inspire you to create your own image.

Either way, you need to make sure that it looks professional – this will be your shop window!

Your Gig Description

Again take a look at other descriptions to see the type of things that people write.  This is an important part of your Gig and you want to get it right so don’t rush it.  Your description is what will help somebody decide whether to spend money with you or choose somebody else to do the job.

Sell yourself!  Write a confident description that makes the customer feel that they can trust you to do a great job in the time specified.

Imagine that you are the customer and ask yourself the question, would you buy from you?


Once you’ve written your description, fill in your tags to ensure that your Gig will come up in the Fiverr results when somebody searches for those keywords.  If you are unsure what tags to use, type in some keywords in the search bar and see what Gigs appear.  This will give you an idea of whether your keyword description is correct.

Delivery Duration

Next set your delivery duration.  This is the time you promise to deliver your service in. Make sure you can deliver confidently on time.

Getting Orders

Once you have set up your Gig you are ready to start taking orders.  However, don’t expect the orders to just roll in, you may need to do a little more work.

Here are a few ways you can increase your chances of getting your first orders.

  • Set up more than one Gig.
  • Promote your Gigs on social media.
  • Get some friends or family to order gigs from you and leave you great reviews.
  • Create a lower price Gig for services to help land your first Gig. Then increase your services after you are confident with your turnaround.
  • Use Buyer Request (This is essentially the tool that helps you to find buyers who are looking for the Gigs you are offering.  You can then send them an offer).  This is one of the best ways to get your first orders on Fiverr!

Getting Paid

Getting paid is really easy.  When somebody places an order with you they pay Fiverr, then when you complete the order, Fiverr pays you 80%.

So that’s how you can start making money on Fiverr.  Once you get going, how much money you make is really up to you and the effort you put into it.  It’s a simple business system that anyone can have a go at for free so why not give it a try!
