Fiverr is an online community where one could become a freelancer or a buyer of many things. If you need an explainer video, a blog post to be written or maybe you need to promote your new YouTube video, you can find the help here. Fiverr lets you access many experts that can do all types of things to help you with your online efforts. They also allow you to sign up for free to become a seller of anything you may be good at. This is a great place to make a nice income online if you have competent skills.

How to use Fiverr?

As mentioned, Fiverr is completely free to join. If you are looking to purchase a service on Fiverr from one of the many sellers. All you have to do is type in the search bar exactly what you’re looking for. The results will come back with hundreds of Sellers for you to choose from. Make sure you look at the seller’s reviews and contact the seller to see a sample of their work before you make a purchase.

If you want to become a seller on Fiverr, it is super easy to do. However, you should make sure you’re able to do, what you say you can do with your new Fiverr gig. If you get bad reviews because you’re not competent, you will not make much money. It is absolutely crucial that you can perform the task with efficiency and accuracy.

When you sign up to become a seller on Fiverr they will ask you to create your first gig. A gig is what Fiverr calls each individual service offered on their platform. It takes about fifteen minutes to properly set up a Fiverr gig. You will be asked to come up with a title, price, a description of your service and so on. Once you have your gig built you can start promoting it.

Benefits of Using Fiverr

Benefits of using FiverrThere are quite a few benefits to being a buyer on Fiverr. For instance, if you need more content for your website there are many qualified writers on this platform. If you look hard enough you will find sellers that will write a high-quality blog post for only $5. Now, not everyone who is a seller is going to produce high-quality content. This is why it is important to contact the seller and ask them for some samples of their work. A good seller will respond pretty quickly to the samples you requested.

It’s rather easy to become a seller on Fiverr and make a nice side income. If you work hard at producing high-quality content and receive nothing but 5-star reviews. It will not take you very long from turning that side income into a full-time job.

The income potential on Fiverr is one of its greatest benefits to sellers. Just because the platform is called Fiverr, does not mean your gig has to only be $5. Let’s say you create very high-quality logos, and you know that it should cost $45 for your designs. You can actually set your gig price up for the $45 you want to charge. You don’t have to be afraid of charging what your work is worth. There are plenty of highly skilled individuals on Fiverr that make well over $2,000 a week from their gigs.

Fiverr – The Pros

When it comes to purchasing anything on Fiverr the process is easy and completely secure. They use PayPal for buyers to make their purchase. Then once you have ordered the service you want. Fiverr will hold onto those funds until the buyer accepts the finished product. The Seller has to send it to you before you can accept. This is when you review what they send you, make sure it is up to par. If it’s not you can ask the seller to make your desired corrections. Most Sellers will respond very quickly to your demands. They do not want a bad review from you. Once you accept the order Fiverr will release the funds to the seller.

Now as a Seller, I have mentioned the benefits of one’s income potential on Fiverr. However, I did not mention how Fiverr helps you get more sales. After you create your new gig, Fiverr will start displaying your gig on their main page from time to time. As your gig gets constant 5-star reviews, and you are delivering on time. They will start putting your gig on the main site more and more. Furthermore, There is a buyer request area that you can see what people want to be done. You are allowed to approach buyers up to ten times a day, and offer them a customer offer for what they are requesting. Plus, they give you your own link and banners to use to promote yourself off of Fiverr.

Fiverr – The Cons

Sometimes buyers who didn’t research the seller very well will get substandard work. Another thing, I wouldn’t purchase traffic off of Fiverr. Most of those gigs are click mills in Bangladesh. They will not help you get anything but fake clicks. You must research the sellers you want to do business with before making your purchase. Since we all know that the world is not black and white. There are people of low morale’s everywhere, even on Fiverr.

As a Seller, there are some things to watch out for. If you get contacted by a person, you have never dealt with before and they try to drive you off Fiverr, it’s most likely a scam. For instance, a common thing is for someone from China or India to ask you if they can access your PC via remote. So they can create accounts on Fiverr and other places like Up Work, essentially using your IP address to do so. They claim that they will pay you thousands of dollars. Don’t let these people access anything and avoid at all cost.

Once you complete an order and the buyer accepts it. You don’t get your money right away. Fiverr will hold your funds for 14 days before you can withdraw it to your PayPal or Bank Account. Plus, Fiver Takes $1 for Every $5 you earn. So if you charge $25 for your gig, after you complete an order you earn $20. However, the payment system is completely secure and always works without a hitch.


Do You need to learn a skill to make money on Fiverr?

    Thanks for warning us against buying traffic on fiverr. I think for newbies this is somewhat enticing, but as you get more experienced, you realize that it isn’t targeted traffic and will just be numbers.

    • Hi Melinda!

      Yes. It’s tempting to purchase traffic but in the long run quality content and an engaging website or website will win the day. There are very few shortcuts that take the place of learning and doing! There are no get rich quick pills out there! Ha!

      Sharing your ideas for a writer might make thing a little easier but be sure they can semi-duplicate your unique voice. You seriously get what you pay for here.

      Thanks for stopping by! Talk soon!

  • Wow, I didn’t know Fiverr takes $1 for every $5 you make as a seller. That’s 20%!

    Thanks for the reminder of staying away from Fiverr gigs selling traffic. I know that’s the case for backlink as well. You never know where do the traffic and links come from. It can potentially destroy your site forever.

    I’m just thinking Fiverr should consider banning the sale of traffic and backlink to protect buyers. What do you think?

    • Hey Jerry,

      I’m with you on staying away from Fiverr in general. You typically get what you pay for and end up doing more editing then if you had written yourself. Many of the good copywriters end up setting up their own sites and doing much better on their own.

      Fiverr would be doing a great service to vet and ban those practicing in anything that resemble blackhat style SEO services.

      I think at the minimum it would make a good training at WA to remind newbie affiliate marketers to stay away from this as a practice. I’ve said it many times, there are no get rich quick pills in the online business world. Learn , apply and work hard and you’ll find success!

      Thanks for stopping by Jerry!

  • Jerry McCoy says:

    I liked your post on fiverr. You gave me some important information about them. They do offer a free to join but when you start using them you give them 20 percent of what you earned. Your article was well written and to the point. I enjoyed it a great deal.

    • Hi Jerry!

      Yes! It is free to join. Buyers pay a fee to Fiverr for using sellers that post there. For buyers All purchases are subject to a processing fee, $1 on purchases up to and including $20 and 5% on purchases above $20. It’s really not the best deal for seller either, Sellers keep 80% of each Gig they sell and successfully complete and deliver. For example, each $5 Gig you sell and successfully deliver, accredits your account with a net revenue of $4. Fiverr accredits sellers once an order is completed.

      There are some thing to look out for on Fiverr. Stay away from Fiverr gigs selling website traffic. It’s also the case for backlink services as well. You never know where do the traffic and links are come from and It can potentially destroy your site forever.

      Thanks again for stopping by Jerry! Please visit again!

    Hi Steven,
    I had checked out Fiverr recently as I’ve taken a course in web design and have learned how to create logos as a byproduct, which I greatly enjoy. But there is no way I would’ve learned all the pros and cons about Fiverr without having it pointed it out to me as you have so well done.
    Thank you for the information – it’s definitely helping me make an informed decision.

    • Hi Etsy!

      If you have services worth selling I’m thinking getting started with Fiverr and moving your clients onto your own website might be a better option in the long run. 20% of the sellersearning sems high to me. I know that most of Fiverr services come at a discount but I do not mind paying for quality work.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  • Laurie says:

    I’ve been hearing a lot about Fiverr, so I was really happy to read your review. If I had more hours in the day, I might try it, lol.

    • Hi,

      I think the one good thing about Fiverr is the time it can save you. Collaborating on blog post has saved me time but you do have to weed out the good from the bad and find someone who understands you niche. You do get what you pay for.

      I certainly understand the time crunch issues with business! Ha!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  • Matts Mom says:

    I think that I create good content, and this definitely sounds like a way to make a little money on the side. Are all the requests website related, or do students ask for papers done as well?

    • admin says:


      I never thought of students using this as a way to get papers written! HaHa

      If you write well and like earning money then Fiverr could be the place for you! I would definitely check it out. Another way to possibly earn is to create your own niche writing site and offer copy and article writing services there. Then you wouldn’t have to pay the high fees that Fiverr charges. Just a thought.

      Thanks for stopping by and please visit again!

  • I have used fiver and while I was looking for a specific use, I was surprised to see all that you can get done through this site.

    • Hi Maurice!

      Yeah, you can find a lot of services on Fiverr but I have found that you get what you pay for. If you find someone who will work with you and they can help you with providing quality SEO rich content for your site then I would stick with that writer.

      One thing to be very cautious of ob Fiverr. Stay clear of Fiverr gigs selling website traffic. It’s also the case for backlink services as well. You never know where do the traffic and links are come from and It can potentially destroy your site forever.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  • Hello Steven, great post! I am very familiar with fiverr, and will probably have to use it in the near future. Fiverr is a great tool to use in order to pay someone to get your website out there, it can really benefit you a lot. Thanks again, and continue to do what you do!!!

    • admin says:

      Hi Ahmad!

      I have had goo luck using Fiverr but I did discover early on that you get what you pay for. I have have found a few sources theere I can trust. I am reluctant to waste time trying to find I better price. Hope all is well on your end Ahmad and please come back and visit!


  • Aside from building my website and writing my own content, I’m looking at Fiverr to do the same. This review is very detailed and I liked how you made me understand the process, the Pros and the Cons. Thank you for this.

    • admin says:


      I write most of my own content as well but when I’m feeling overwhelmed or like I can’t keep up I turn to one of my favorite content writers. I provide the idea and outline and they do the rest. It’s important to find someone who has a little knowledge of expertise in your area or you may find yourself re-writing/editing most of their work.

      Please feel free to reach out if you ever have any question on this subject.

  • Sarah says:

    Wao! very good post Steven. I have been working there as a writer too but now I write for my own website. Your post is very helpful for the newbie as mostly people are unaware of how to use fiver, these pros and cons will help them. I will share your post with few of my known persons who are interested in working there as a writer. Thanks for sharing such an informative post.

    • admin says:

      Hi Sarah!
      You’re quite welcome!

      There are pros and cons to using and working with the Fiverr platform. I think it’s a great place for people to get started with a work from writing career or any of the other services that Fiverr provides. It’s also a great place to get help if you are having a hard time keeping up with task on your business such as writing post, logo design, website development, etc.
