What you need to get Started
There are no upfront costs to do business on Fiverr. That is what makes it a great place to start if you have a creative mind and want to capitalize on your ideas. The only costs you will have is for anything that you choose to invest in as you are creating products or services. The investments may be for software or materials.
So it is great that you can start a business with virtually no money. You do not need to invest a dime if you are good at writing or data entry, or creating presentations. Most of the things you will need for that you most likely already have such as a computer and a spreadsheet or word processor program.
Terms of Service
Fiverr is very strict on their terms of service. Make sure you understand and follow everything the way it is written. Fiverr takes these terms seriously and you do not want to jeopardize any future you have as a business owner.
Once you have read them and are comfortable with them and understand everything, you can begin to think how you are going to set up your gigs. Since Fiverr makes it easy for you and for the buyers to understand what is going on, then there should be no shadow of a doubt that you will do well with this business.
If you are already an Internet entrepreneur, then you likely have a niche in mind or have already started a business around your niche. Most people believe they have to come up with a niche idea that is so unlike everything else, or have a state of the art idea that no one else ever had.
The truth is most people do not gravitate toward new ideas very well. They like familiarity and would rather do something they know rather than try something too new. The reason they do this is because when people already know how to do something, they feel they have a better chance accomplishing their tasks.
How to come up with a Good Gig Idea
First, every business needs to research the market. It is wise to know what is out there and what people want to buy. You should also know what people have to offer so you can model around that. Do not ponder on how to do this, as it is very simple. You can go right onto Fiverr’s website and learn a lot about what sells.
First type in a service that you are interested in doing, and then when you have search results take note of what the results are. What is selling the most and what has the ratings are the types of gigs you want to model after. It should not be hard finding a niche to get into as there are millions of gigs out there.
It starts with an Idea
After you have an idea of what people want and what sells, you can now come up with some ideas of your own. What you want to do is differentiate your idea from the rest. Give the benefits of what you are selling in the gig description. You also need to describe what you are going to do for the client and do exactly what you say you will do.
Fun Hobbies can turn into Cash
Think about some hobbies you have or are interested in doing. If you are an artist, you can paint a picture. If you are a writer, you can create articles. Don’t think of it as job or a chore because if it feels like work, then it is something you probably should not do. Fiverr is meant to be fun and engaging, so tailor your gigs around that notion.
Make sure you are charging a fair price for the gig so that it is something that will reward both you and the client. When I tell people about Fiverr, they often think, why would I do that for five dollars? Now it is time to think outside of the box, as you are not simply charging fiver dollars for one gig. For instance, say you are making a video and you know that making videos can be time consuming. They are also rather pricey on other sites.
So if you want to make a video, then you will do something like charge five dollars for every thirty seconds of video. Most of the time people will need longer videos than that. Or sometimes, people just need video intros done, in which you can charge the same price and the time may be shorter. It is all about being fair and doing what is best for your client and yourself.
Tell others about your Goals
On a side note, when you have goals, it is a great idea to tell other people about it. It is best to tell people who are in the same line of work as you are so there is an equal understanding of what your goals are and what you are doing to accomplish them.
Once you are able to share your goals, you will feel happier and more excited once you reach them. You will also have the support you need to back you up. There is no such thing as too much support. You will need the support to help you get through any hurdles that come with having your own business.
Communication Really Helps
Communication is one of the most important factors when doing business online, as you may know. All of your work will be done through the Fiverr website and therefore, you will need to be very articulate. Make sure you tell your client exactly what you are going to do and make sure they are in agreement with what you are doing.
Do not be discouraged if there are some errors at first. People will know if you are just starting out or if you have some experience. If you are not sure exactly what your client needs, most of the time they will give you an example of what they need. Remember they are hiring you to do the work because they do not always have the time to do it. This is a win-win for both you and your customers.
Respond as quickly as you can because many times people are asking more than one person if they can do their task. Also be very polite and communicate with them if there are any problems completing the task. You can always tell them you want to ensure they are getting the best service from you, which helps break the ice in many situations.
One of the best things you can do to help put them at ease is offer their money back if they are not satisfied. It is best to give them that cushion and helps build some rapport. Most of the time they will be satisfied with what you are doing, so very rarely will they ask for their money back.
Be Confident in your Brand
Having confidence in your brand and everything you do on Fiverr is a key to your success. Your brand should be about creating a solution for every customer or potential customer that comes by your gig. Pretty soon it will be like second nature and after so many clients, you will be able to take on more work and your quality will improve.
Another way to show confidence in your brand and image is to be clear on your goals. Communicate with the buyer what goals they want accomplished and lay out a plan and show them what you are going to do. The more they can visualize what is going on, the better. Most people learn visually and so having a plan they can see will help build their confidence in you.
Always keep Trying
Things will not always run as smooth as you like. That is why you need to keep trying until you can satisfy the needs of your clients. People do make mistakes, but do not think that you can just make mistakes and other people will understand. People do understand that mistakes happen, but you need to put the effort in to check your work and make sure it is the best it can be.
When you are just starting out, offer unlimited revisions until you get the work done the way your customer wants it to be done. If you are not sure what they want, then you can rephrase what they are saying in your own words to find out what they want. Always ask until you are sure.
Making a few mistakes here and there does not ruin your chances of being a good seller. You can always learn from your mistakes and the next time you make a sale, you will be more experienced and stronger than you were previously.
Since Fiverr does a great job at getting clients who want to buy, even if that one person who didn’t use your service made you a little sad, always know that there are way more clients and people out there who will want to use your services. As an entrepreneur, you know that there will be a lot of no’s but even so there will always be yeses.
How to set up your Account
Now you know a little more about Fiverr and what you need to do to begin, when you are finished your plan, you can go back to the website to begin setting up your account. At the top you will see the “Start Selling” button to the right. Once you click on that, you will be asked to create a username and password. Make it something that is relevant to what you are selling.
Once you complete that task, it will send a link to your email in which you will need to click on to activate your account. Now it will ask you to complete your profile and you will want it to be as complete as possible before moving on. Do not leave anything blank. The more there is to verify you as a user, the more confident the clients will be in using your services.
Don’t put any information on there that you do not want the world knowing, so a description of what you do and who you are and how you got your start will be great. There is not a lot of room in the description box, so make it as precise and to the point as possible while still telling people a lot about who you are.
Setting Up A Gig
The next step is to set up your first gig. In the top right hand corner, you will see your user name. Click on that and a drop down menu will appear. Next click on “Selling” and it will open up more options. Then click on “My Gigs” and when the page loads, you will see a blue button that says, “Add a New Gig” and you will click on that.
Now you will need a gig description in which you cannot make more than 1200 characters. This gives you plenty of room to describe what you are going to be doing and most of the time you will not need that much space. The best way to write a gig description is to use bullet points and also highlight important parts of the gig that you want to stand out to the customer so they know exactly what you are offering and will notice it right away.
Now you will need to choose a category for your gig. If you are going the marketing route, you will put it under “advertising” or “digital marketing” and it will have sub categories to choose from. Just choose the one that is best for you.Other Details
