A Review on Fiverr

I signed up with Fiverr about a month ago. For those of you who doesn’t know what Fiverr is, it is actually a platform that allows anyone to buy or sell services at $5. Since it launched in 2010, it have been a huge hit. I only got to know about it recently through a seller who promote it through social media. How I wished that I knew about it earlier.

Probably you are wondering that how it works, whether if it benefits you as a seller or a buyer. I am interested to sell my service in illustrations and designs, so I decided to give it a try. Randomly selecting my first image for my first gig, which is creating cartoon characters at $5. And I got my first order the very next day. I was so excited! Then, the orders just kept pooring in. But some days are dry but other days there are multiple orders in a day. It is not much, as I have only one gig up. So, I decided to create more gigs.

So, if you are wondering how much you can make with just $5 (oops, actually you only make $4, as Fiverr takes $1 from every $5 you make) my secret is that extra gigs really helps you to earn more. For example an image cost $5, and addition of background cost $10. If the buyer requests for source file, it is another $20. Or you can over line art for $5 and if they require for a full colour image another $10 is charged.

If you don’t have a talent in creating illustrations or drawings, there are others maybe will suit you. For example you can write, sing, compose or web programming. If you are not really good in any of those, there are some interesting gigs, such as offer service to prank your friend, become a testimonial through video or holding a sign.

In my opinion, a buyer can really get an affordable service out of Fiverr from a pool of talented resources from all over the world.

Do you need to custom any designs for your business profile, websites, a gift for a friend or anything? Please contact me, and I will professionally create quality illustrations and designs that you want.
