What is Fiverr? Perhaps one of the best "hacks" available on the internet right now, Fiverr is the ULTIMATE market for goods and services. We have previously blogged that Fiverr is one of the best ways to make quick money online and you'd be amazed to learn what people are willing to do for $5! You can buy almost any good and service, ranging from professional and high-quality services to gigs just for fun, in this unique online marketplace. The good news is that, whether you're a seller or a buyer, you would definitely find the people that you need on Fiverr. When I first learned about Fiverr, I shared an opinion common to first-timers. This common opinion is that the website is merely like Ebay and Elance merged into one and that the only difference is that every gig on Fiverr costs $5 (Hence, the name). Well, yes that is exactly what Fiverr is but it is not "merely like Ebay and Elance merged into one" it is something way BETTER. Fiverr is a very innovative and unique marketplace that has completely changed the way e-commerce works. How does Fiverr work? Basically, Fiverr only allows buying and selling of gigs. A gig is any good or service that you can offer to millions of buyers in the online marketplace. A typical gig would start with the default "I will…" and your offer after those two words. See an example below: Now, there are a lot of categories to choose from such as Graphics & Design, Online Marketing, Writing & Translation, Video & Animation, Music & Audio, Programming & Tech, Advertising, Business, Lifestyle, Gifts and (the best of them all) Fun & Bizarre. There are also subcategories to choose from to filter the results. By default, every gig is set to $5. You may be thinking, "How the hell will I be able to earn a living by selling gigs worth only $5?". Chill out! A great feature that Fiverr has is something called gig extras. Gig extras allow buyers to customize their order with additional features that you set. You can ask buyers to add $5, $10 or $20 more for each gig extra they purchase. Something like rush orders and additional content would be good ideas to set as gig extras. If you have any skill that you think would sell, try creating your own gig. Well, even if you don't have anything in mind you could still try offering services that are simply for fun. A lot of people have fun and bizarre gigs on Fiverr and, who cares if they look crazy, they are earning good money from it. Here are some examples of fun and bizarre gigs that anyone can do: Build your profile Like any other website, building your profile would make you look more trustworthy and professional. Make sure to upload a good photo of yourself, create a catchy title and make your gigs look great. People are more likely to buy your gig if you upload a video showcasing your offer. If I were a buyer, I'd rather buy from someone who made an extra effort in filming himself to offer his gig. It's more personal and professional. Read this very detailed and helpful guide to creating the perfect profile in Fiverr. Start making money right now Fiverr is simply amazing. Selling gigs would surely earn you quick money or, if you invest the time and effort, a constant stream of income. A lot of people have already quit their jobs and made a fortune in Fiverr, which is a great thing! Not only do sellers benefit, buyers can also save loads of money by hiring individuals with professional services at a very budget-friendly price. Instead of hiring freelancers or people on a per-hour-basis, which usually costs a lot of dollars, you can get the same quality for only $5 (or a bit higher)! Create an account now at Fiverr.com and make your own fortune by selling your own gigs. You'd be surprised on how easy it is to market your services here. Also, try browsing what others have to offer since most of the gigs on Fiverr are very interesting and useful!
