When you’re just starting out on Fiverr, the challenge can be daunting; not only do you have to be competitive and sell yourself, but you also have to figure out how to earn on Fiverr at all! Whether you’re looking to supplement your day job or change your career entirely, here are some ways that newbies can start earning money with their services on Fiverr.
Step 1: Log in
To be able to create a gig, you will first need to log in using your personal account. When you have logged in, click on My Account and then select Account Settings. From there you can fill in or update any of your information that is required by selecting Profile Settings. Now let’s go ahead and create our first gig!
Step 2: Add Services
Once you’ve set up your first gig, it’s time to fill out your Gig Details. Make sure you include a description of what kind of service is being performed—and make sure it matches what buyers will see when they go to buy from you. Be specific and use keywords that buyers might search for. Don’t forget to add all relevant details like file formats and turnaround times. And don’t forget about pricing! You can decide whether or not you want to list prices in US dollars or your local currency. Just remember that if you choose USD, then clients will be billed in USD (which could have an impact on how much money you actually earn).
Step 3: Choose your gigs
there are plenty of different gigs you can sell on Fiverr, so try a few and see what works best. The idea is that each gig has at least some demand, and you’ll want to choose something that no one else is doing (i.e., don’t pick draw anime pictures or get 1000 followers on Twitter because there are already tons of sellers offering these things). If you aren’t getting any orders within a few days, it might be worth re-examining your choice. The two most popular gigs for beginners include proofreading and custom writing.
Step 4: Adding Pricing
After creating a new listing, you will see an Add Pricing section at its bottom. To add pricing click ADD PRICING button and enter your price. You can also change your pricing by clicking the CHANGE button. But remember that you need to be in PLATINUM membership in order to do so.
Step 5: Promote Yourself Through Your Profile
Create a professional bio to enhance your credibility and showcase your skills. You can also use your profile space to provide examples of your past work. Add links that are relevant, such as websites or social media profiles. Make sure you upload an appropriate photo that is clear and business-oriented but doesn’t contain any logos or graphics (you’ll be able to add these later).
Step 6: Get Traffic To Your Profile
Traffic is critical, you have to have traffic. Now, you could use free traffic methods (search engine optimization, Social media marketing) or you can paid methods. There are plenty of great resources online about getting free traffic but I will leave that up to you. If you choose paid methods of getting traffic it’s best if your upfront cost is low so that when you need sales more in a month or two months from now, there will be no problem making sales and paying back your investment. It’s also nice if it has some type of recurring aspect so that it brings in money over time as well as at once.
Step 7: Getting Referrals & Taking Requests
Getting Clients, Making More Money: As you can see, it’s not all writing. There are two additional important things that freelance writers need to do. First is getting referrals and taking requests. Without them, you won’t be getting work. And second is making sure that every client is happy with your services so they’ll want to come back again.

Step 8 : Service Offerings (UPDATED FOR 2018)
Service offerings are how you will provide your services. This is especially important if you plan on getting clients or customers outside of freelancing websites like Upwork, Freelancer and PeoplePerHour. Make sure all your service offerings are based around your abilities and interests. They should also include some descriptive words that tell people how they can benefit from hiring you (ex: Want to learn how to play golf? Hire me, a Professional Golf Instructor). Do not use generic terms here because they will not attract clients/customers or raise your chances of getting business from them in any way. You can list as many service offerings as you would like but make sure each one is unique and professional.
Step 9 : Managing Customer Service Questions, Issues, And Disputes
Customer service questions, issues, and disputes are inevitable. No matter how good your products or services are, there will be times when a customer simply isn’t satisfied. There will be times when a customer feels you didn’t deliver exactly what you promised. Sometimes a customer will think he was overcharged and other times he may not want to pay what is due. The most effective way of dealing with all of these things is by documenting them carefully and then taking prompt action based on how serious they are. In some cases it can even mean refunding money.
