Well it’s been a nice long weekend here with Canada Day on July 1st, I guess it’s time to get down to business. One of the great things about Internet Marketing is you don’t have to work every day!
During my few days off of celebratory drinking and fireworks, the idea for this blog post popped into my head.
Many of us are searching or have been searching for that perfect technique to learn and prosper from in order to make money online. It occurred to me, why not stop and look at the skill sets we have, including the environment we are in, and sell ourselves!
That is where Fiverr comes in. Fiverr’s tagline is “What are you willing to do for $5?” This simple yet effective tagline should stop you in your tracks and get the wheels in your head turning!
How to Make Money With Fiverr?
First, let’s talk about how much money you will actually make. Although you are selling your gig for $5, you will only get $4. Fiverr keeps $1 which is a whopping 20% of all sales.
The great thing about Fiverr is that it’s not like any other job hunting site. You don’t need to go through rigorous interviews and reference checks; I doubt anyone will even creep on your Facebook profile! You simply post your gig, and buyers seek you out. If you offer what they are looking for, they will hire you.
Simple Jobs to Get Started
Ask yourself if you have any one of these particular skills or attributes:
- Unique voice

There are just some of the common gigs that people are doing to make money with Fiverr.

Let’s profile 4 types of gigs that basically anyone can do right now.
If you can write a letter to your granny on her birthday, you can write an article. Offer articles of 200-400 words. If you are afraid that you may not be familiar with the topic that your client sends you, don’t be alarmed. That is what Google is for. Just enter a few keywords and research away. Within no time (10 minutes) you should easily have your article written up and sent back to your client. Work one hour a day and you just made $24 a day
How easy is it to create a video? As long as you have a webcam, smart phone or digital camera you can whip up testimonials faster than a Big Mac. Usually your client will give you a script, and most testimonials are no longer than 3 minutes. Include the upload time and you are at 6 minutes. An hour a day and you are making $40 a day.
Many clients have videos that they need voiceovers done for them. Once again this is a gig that will come with a script. Remember having to read out loud in fourth grade? Well this is the same, turn the microphone on and let ‘er rip.
Creative and Unique Gigs
This is where you unleash your creative beast. When I was looking through the ZZZProfits forum the other day I came across one member who talked about a gig where he had his son surf waves and say a message. Oddly enough, I remember seeing this gig way back and thinking it was pretty unique. This gig made the top featured gigs and made them over $600 for very little work.
