In this article I will talk about a platform that has always interested and intrigued me due to the earning potential it has
I’m talking about Fiverr a very interesting marketplace that I’m sure you might be interested in
It has always intrigued me because there are so many reviews about Fiverr on the web
In fact, many authors, youtubers and bloggers have written on the subject and new articles are still coming out on the platform
I have not yet had the time or the opportunity to test the platform so in this article I will not tell you about my direct experience
but I will generally talk about the most important things there is to know about this platform
now no more chatter and let’s dive right into the subject!
What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is a market place.
Jean what is a marketplace?
a marketplace according to Wikipedia is a physical or non-physical place where trade takes place
in simple terms a place where buyers meet sellers
in even simpler words, do you know the market? here we talk exactly about this
except that the trades are done online and the professionals and clients don’t meet
How does Fiverr work?
The way the platform works is extremely simple
after you have activated your seller account you just have to start creating gigs
what are gigs?
I’ll explain it to you in a few lines 🙂
there are two main figures on the platform the trader and the buyer
the professional advertises his services that can start from $5 through fiverr ads that are called gigs in jargon
while the buyer chooses among the millions of offers that there are the one that satisfies his demand
How to become a seller on Fiverr?
Once you have registered, the first thing you need to do to become a seller is to create Giggs
What are gigs? Gigs is the term used to define advertisements made by vendors on Fiverr
in these announcements (you the seller) you explain the individual services you offer , their characteristics and the possible extras that may be in your offer and of course the price
The number of gigs you have on your profile is a very important factor that affects your likelihood of selling your services
ON FIVERR THE MORE GIGS YOU HAVE, THE BETTER IT IS
I recommend that you create a lot of specific gigs
for example, don’t just say you’re a blogger
but emphasize your specialty: SEO blogger, copywriting, keyword research etc …
Since fiverr is a platform for selling services, your profit is proportional to the services you offer and their quality
Which means that the more quality your services are, the more likely you are to earn a lot
FOCUS ON THE QUALITY OF YOUR SERVICES
However, keep in mind that fiverr is a Marketplace in favor of the buyer
it is therefore difficult to make money like professionals outside the platform
This does not take away from the fact that you can earn from a few hundred euros a month up to a few thousand euros a month for the more experienced in short, a great way to round up your online earnings.
Another thing you have to take into consideration is that this platform is populated by professionals who live in countries where the cost of living is much lower than the Italian one.
This explains the competition and the relatively low prices for services
