Earning Money Online from Fiverr is not too hard and not too easy as well.

I registered my account on Fiverr in Sep-2017 but I was not active on Fiverr for more than 2 years.
I reopened my account on Fiverr in sep-2020 and created my first Gig.
You won’t believe it, I got my first order on the 23rd day after creating and publishing my first Gig.
This tended to impossible and surprising, but I was not surprised, because I applied some very useful and effective strategies to get orders from the clients.So, here you are going to go through those pro tips which may not be available free of cost anywhere.
Even I am not sure that you will get it by paying some amount.
Fiverr is working as a mediator between the client and the Freelancer.
Freelancer posts his/her skills on the dashboard of Fiverr which is visible to the clients.
Clients order the work or project to the freelancers according to their requirements by reviewing some checkpoints.
Here you are going to learn how to create an effective profile so that a client does not think twice before giving you an order.
Get Registered – Fiverr Registrtion
You know that this is the first mandatory and first step to get connected with any freelancing and other sites for earning.
I know, registration is a quite simple process but if you do a small mistake on Fiverr registration, you will have to register with other credentials because Fiverr allows only one email id and mobile number while registration.
Mobile number and email id both are mandatory for registration and you can use only once while registration.
So, here I am giving you an overview of how to register on Fiverr to start online earning by your skills.
Just get connected by registering on fiverr.com.
Click on the above button, fill in the details, and then click on the “Become a Seller” option to make registration completed.
You will get an email notification for verifying and activating your account, just follow the simple process, and then you will get registered.
Then you will be redirected to the login page.
Just log in move on to the next step.
Create a Gig
Creating a Gig is the starting point of your online business on Fiverr. You will get orders by your Gigs.
What is Gig
In simple words, Gig is the project which represents your skills, your services, charges, and your work to the client.
For example, whenever we are going to present the business proposal to the client, we create a presentation for his understanding.
Similarly, Gig is that presentation which enables the clients to understand and go through about your skills and other business aspects.
After creating Gig, your Gig will be display like the above image.
In above image, there is my Gig which I created before 1 month ago almost.
And I received 3 orders while in general, it takes up to 3 months to receive the first order after creating Gig.
But I created my Gig in a different way, that’s why I received my first order on the 23rd day after creating Gig.
Select your Niche/Skills
Do not approach to create a Gig directly without planning.
First select what you want to promote a service, project, or freelancing work.
For example, I have created a Gig about content writing.
You will be given options in hierarchical ways to select your niche.
You can see in the above image, but these are only those skills on which I am working and Earning Money Online from Fiverr.
This is not an end, there many many categories are available according to your skills and interest.
On How many skills I can work
There are no limits to working on skills.
If you have more than one skill, you can work on all of them.
You just need to create effective Gigs that can approach the clients to interact with you and the rest work will be done by you.
I am working on 6 Skills.
- Content Writing
- Article Writing
- Ads Banner Making
- Social Media Cover Making
- Affiliate Marketing
- Creating Blogposts
- Copywriting and Proof Reading
Fiverr does not restrict anyone to work, you can earn according to your potential.
How to Create a Gig
Creating a Gig is very simple, there is not any rocket science.
You just need to follow the simple steps suggested by Fiverr according to your skills.
First of all, you need to log in to your Fiverr Seller account dashboard.
Click on Gigs.
After Clicking on the Gigs, you will be redirected on Gig’s dashboard, where you will be able to see the created Gigs.
- Active Gigs
- Pending Approval Gigs
- Requires Modification Gigs
- Draft Gigs
- Denied Gigs
- Paused Gigs
Only Active Gigs will be visible to the clients when they search the Gigs similar to keywords included in your Gig Title and/or Gig Description.
You will be redirected on below the page by clicking Gigs.
Click on Create A New Gig
Now the important potion gets started where you have to use your mind and creativity.
Select the Title
Your Title must be eye-catchy and representing your skills because your title decides whether the client will click or not on your Gig.
While writing Title, you will have to leave “I will” as it is.
Start writing after “I will”.
After “I will” you have to mention what you can do for your client.
Like: “I will Create 2D & 3D Print Banner, Ad Banners, Headers”
Select the Category and subcategory according to your niche and skills.As long as you select the category and subcategory, the “GIG METADATA” option will be enabled automatically.
Then you need to select the “METADATA” according to your project and then click on SAVE & CONTINUE.
Insert the keywords in “Search Tags” which are similar to your niche.
Like, if you are creating Gig for Banner Creation, then you should insert the tag of “Banner Creation”, “GIF Image”, “PNG Image”, etc…
And Fiverr will suggest you select the tags according to your Gig.
Then click on Save & Continue.
By clicking on Save & Continue you will be redirected to the “Package” information page.
Here you have to create the packages for your service.
Here you need to create the Three different packages according to the service, quality, and quantity.
You can vary the service, quality, and quantity according to your skills.
The minimum rate is $5 and the maximum is $995.
You can keep only one package (Basic) also, but it is not recommendable.
So I suggest you keep all three packages open for the clients.
If you want, you can also add the add-on extra services for extra charges.
After completing this, click on “Save & Continue“.
Next Page: Description
If you have kept the title of Gig is eye-catchy, then the client will definitely click on your Gig.
He will come to see the Description of your Gig.
You can search on Google by How to write effective Gig for Fiver.
Next One: Insert Images and Videos
Now I recommend you, before creating a Gig, you should create first some example works which you can show the client as a sample work.
So the client will be able to measure your productivity, quality of work, and sensitivity of work.
Upload your sample work’s Image, PDF, or video here.
Do not use any copyrighted content.
Now, You Are Done!
You are done with Gig only, but not started to earn online till now.
The entire process you were reading still now, is just a very small part.
Now, what will you do, so you will get orders, because until you get the orders from the client, creating 100+ Gigs also is meaningless. 🙂
So, Let’s Explore the secrets
Creating Gig is just one and the first part of the online journey on Fiverr.
Rest is need to completed yet and it is too much to done.
You will have to work with some strategies.
Eye-Catchy Title and Images
Keep the Title of Gig Eye-Catchy and Image seems real and attractive which makes the client belief that you will be able to do his project nicely.
Never compromise on Quality and services.
Share Your Gigs
When you register a new account on Fiverr and create the first Gig, you are new on Fiverr with “No Level“.
Because you are a beginner on Fiverr’s record.
In this case, there are very few chances to rank your Gig organically by keywords.
So how to can you get orders, right?
You should share your Gigs on every possible platform.
As long as you keep sharing your Gig, after some days you will start to get orders from clients.
Low Rates as a Beginner
As a beginner, you need to make trust in buyers and need to collect positive reviews from the buyers, so that it is very important to get maximum projects and orders.
In terms of this Goal, you need to keep your rates low that a new buyer who can not trust you 100%, can afford your cost.
Below is the logic for this strategy.
If your rate is low, the client thinks that he can afford the loss of this amount if a freelancer(you) would not do work properly.
So, for trying purpose he will try you.
And here you have to grab the opportunity.
I used this strategy and I got BOOM! 😀
Be Active and Available
This is a very important part of the strategy in order to get the project from the buyer.
Because you are now allowed to mention you phone number or whatsapp number or any other media apart from Fiverr platform on the description or Title or anywhere else.
So, if you receive an order or inquiry for your Gig on Fiverr, and if you miss to respond earlier, you may loose that project.
You can download the fiverr android app also, so you can check in even you are not logged in pc anytime.
Send the Offer Before Rejection
When you receive inquiry from the buyer (Even just for information and curiosity purpose), do not give him time to think.
Immediately create offer giving some extra benefits in same rate, and send him.
You can see my dirty trick 😀 to force the client in above Image. 😛
These were strategies to get orders from the buyers, now we will discuss what cares need to be taken after receiving orders so that this chain will keep continuing.
When you get orders, your performance on the current order/project decides how many chances to get the next order.
Here what happens that, your buyers give review, rating, and feedback his experience with you after you complete his project.
According to your work, performance, interaction, he rates you on Fiverr.
His feedback is visible to all buyers on Fiverr whoever visits your Gig.
So, you need to keep more attention to some sensitive points after you receive the project and deliver him his work.
Avoid Chat More
Do not approach to chat again and again with the client, because it impacts very critical on the buyer’s subconscious mind.
He assumes that you are not interested in working seriously and you just like to chat only. (This is my own experience when I received my first order and did not know how to do work on Fiverr with clients.)
I recommend that when you get an order, kindly collect all information about his requirement from the buyer.
Try to collect all information about the task in one go when you receive a project from the buyer.
Send the Module of Work
This strategy is not for all clients, but it depends on the nature of the project.
If you seem that this project will be divided into different modules, that you should do the following things.
Divide the project into Modules with Headings and send those details with bullets to the client and inform him that the below topics will be included in your project.
Let me give you my example.
I received an order to write an article on affiliate marketing for webinars.
- How it works
- What is affiliate Market
- Types of Affiliate network
- Highest commission affiliate networks
Then I asked, anything else you want more or not, he said “No”.
This kind of approach conveys the message to the client that you are a systematic working freelancer and will do his work with accuracy and strategy.
Try to Deliver work Before Time
Remember one thing, clients value the Time more than Money.
That is why the client hires you (Freelancer).
So, always deliver the work on time, and if possible, deliver before time.
If you seem that you will take One day to complete the task, commit for 2 days, and deliver the work before 4-5 hours before the deadline.
It creates a very good impression on the client’s mind which helps to get the next order very easily.
Give the Unlimited Revisions
Even in a Basic Package, give unlimited revision.
Reason: When we complete the graduation, and find the job, at that time our focus is on experience instead of the Money.
Similarly, when you are a beginner, your main focus must be to generate a very trusted record instead of earning money.
And the best way to create a reputation is to give proper satisfaction to the client.
So, give unlimited revision until the client’s satisfaction.
It works as a booster to collect a positive review and good ratings from the buyers for you.
Give the Honest Review
After you deliver the work to the buyer, the client will leave the review according to his experience with you for your work.
You also have an option to leave a review for the client.
Leave an honest review for the client.
If you feel that the buyer was not well, you should give an honest review.
The reason is that whenever that buyer will contact the other freelancer for his next project, he will be able to decide that he should take that client’s project or not.
So Fiverr also suggest you leave an honest review for the client.
In a conclusion, you should thoroughly follow these strategies, because these all are experienced and proven tricks to get and sustain the projects from the clients.
And, these strategies are not limited only to Fiverr, in the face on any freelancing sites over the internet.
Still, if you do have any query, confusion, you can ask me in a comment, or email.
You will be responded to the earliest possible.
