First Week On Fiverr

Spread the love

Fiverr is a freelance platform designed in Israel that allows users to buy “gigs” for as little as $5.

The service launched in 2010, in part because its usability for digital marketers has grown exponentially – everyone from SEOs to Amazon FBA power sellers outsource minor tasks to experts who deliver their services through the platform.

In 2015, stories started popping up about service providers making significant revenue/profits from the system, with one of them – SPXMAC – reporting more than $40,000 per month in revenue (a remarkable achievement).

With that in mind, people with real skills, experience and expertise are being attracted to provide services through the system, including myself.

That’s why I feel compelled to share some of the progress I’ve made on the platform. It’s not a huge amount, but can give some insight into what works and what doesn’t.

Fiverr’s Online System (How It Works)

The most important thing about Fiverr is that the provider has to create an offer for the customer.

While there are many other ‘freelance’ sites, they rely on clients to provide jobs/gigs and let suppliers facilitate by posting proposals. The client will then go through the proposals and make a selection.

Due to the opposing nature of the Fiverr system, it opens up new ways for the “freelance” system to work.

Service providers are basically able to offer many “products”/”services” instead of selling jobs, thus providing buyers with a more organized and systematic job.

For example, if you’re a logo provider – you sell your “logo design” service for $150 – buyers can come in and ask and buy.

The point is that this new model is different from the previous model, and in many cases better. It puts the full focus on the product/service provided and encourages suppliers to systematize the delivery process as much as possible – enabling higher quality, cheaper prices and more efficient service.

If you want to create an effective (and profitable) product/service to list on your website, it’s important to understand what buyers are looking for and get it done in the most streamlined way possible. This is where I started my shift.

Sales of products/services

Obviously every market/platform has its winners and losers.

The main thing I’ve found on the platform is that there are really “two” ways to list products/services:

List products/services based on your experience – if you are a graphic designer, create tips such as ebook covers, logo designs or website templates
List products/services based on market demand – As mentioned earlier, many “digital marketers” use Fiverr as a source of low-cost yet high-quality services for their growing online businesses
The former may take longer to bear fruit; the latter will be faster, but will result in less creativity in the product.
I tend to mix the two – find out what’s trending and put my own tendencies on it.

Some of the most popular listings I’ve found are the “Amazon Product Listing Description” writing services. The most successful of these is “SPXMAC”, which earns over $30k/$40k per month.

There are currently 3 vendors offering this service and they typically receive 15 to 30 gig orders per day. SPXMAC is definitely the leader.

my experience

To explain, I’m not doing this on my own behalf; I helped a friend build it and we split the profit.

To do this, I first listed some generic services on the Fiverr system based on my friend’s hands-on experience (he is involved in finance).

We start writing articles – imagine a high-end “financial” blogger (they rely on quality, accurate and current content) who is willing to hire an expert involved in many deals, deals with a private consortium in London, and is highly tech-savvy.

I wrote a profile list explaining his work in the industry, his experience and (importantly) why he listed his services on Fiverr.

In the last section, I explained that he wanted to expand his personal brand and that writing for the money was the most appropriate way. Instead of guest messaging, you instantly set a precedent for those who buy.

This seems to have gone relatively smoothly (many blog operators buy his articles and use his name/face as “author” on their sites).

In terms of the products we offer, the first thing we try is the “Forex” article writing service. This is not very popular as it is a very busy market and usually operates in cycles (i.e.

$25 for $10. That’s pretty low, but let’s make some headway with system reviews/feedback.

Most people who buy packages just let us figure out what articles to write (we usually write about current market trends, the importance of blockchain, etc.) – and start scaling as much as we can.

The “crypto” items worked well (we made $500 each in the first week), but at such low prices it was unsustainable. We were all exhausted, so we decided to raise the price slightly – which significantly reduced the interest rate / throughput.

Nevertheless, although the frequency of purchases decreased, the quality of feedback received and buyers improved significantly.


The main thing I’ve found online is to use my own face.

I have done many things under a pseudonym in the past. Some are legit (runs the second largest Webkinz site), but most are just because I don’t want people to know what I’m doing.

While this is a valid reason to hide my identity, the simple truth is that it completely prevented my rapid growth. That’s why one of the most important things I started doing for my friends was to emphasize the importance of having your name out – making sure you bring your unique experiences, ideas and expertise forward as the core essence that people should tell you. consider.

If you decide to do business with Fiverr, I recommend one of the few ways you can “own” your name online by providing real content. Think of it as an extension to LinkedIn or Twitter, for example – a ‘social’ contact point through which ‘online’ communities can communicate with you.
