Checklist to Build a Successful gig on Fiverr as a Part Time Earner.
Fiverr is a great place to monetise your skills. If you are currently employed and you possess a certain set of skills that is highly sought after, you are able to gain a healthy income on the side by selling your services to people who need it. However, this does require a certain level of commitment to ensure that you set up initially to attract orders and to gain orders consistently along the way.
Since fiverr does now have a substantial number of service providers, it might seem impossible to create a space for you and gain attention. Fear not, as it not impossible. There is a process that enables you to establish yourself successfully. The following points will guide you along what needs to be done to start your fiverr journey.
Step 1: Find an ideal service category that you are an expert in.
Step 2: Checkout the competition
Once you have selected a category, look at the competition available. This is your best way to learn what works to reach the top. Look at the top ranking gigs to see how they have created their gigs. How they have coined their title, how attractive their thumbnail is, how they have structured their gig description and how they have priced their service.
Step 3: Create an eye-catching title.
Step 4: Choose the correct keywords and tags
Step 5: Create a competitive price point for your gig
Look at what the competition is offering and identify a price point for an entry level gig. This would ideally be the gigs with no reviews currently and ratings indicating that these are newly established gigs. See how they have priced.Look at what the competition is offering and identify a price point for an entry level gig.

Further, establish packages to differentiate the services you provide. In Fiverr you are able to provide three packages with three different price points. Use the most basic package to the lowest price, but include certain features that are not provided by others to differentiate yourself. Eg; including psd. File for a logo project in the basic or mid-tier package.
Consider pricing your services low at the start to attract more buyers. Fiverr has a level system based on the number of orders you do and the reviews you get. The higher you progress, the more visible and successful your gigs will be. Once you’ve moved up a level, and have multiple five-star ratings and reviews, you can raise your prices.
Step 6: Win them with your gig description
The next step in creating a successful Fiverr gig is to write a gig description that makes people want to buy. You’ve got a lot of space to play with, so here’s what you do:
- Highlight the benefits for buyers, including how your services will help them achieve success or win business
- Say why you’re the right person for them to work with. Five-star sellers with thousands of happy customers usually lead with this information, because it helps to reassure potential buyers that they are choosing the right gig
- State clearly what’s included in the service you offer
- Include links to social proof—if you’ve got an external portfolio that makes your services look good, this is the place to put it
Step 7: Market yourself – create a flow of orders – Create positive reviews
The last but not the least in importance is to use your networks available to gain visibility to your service. Use available social media platforms to reach out to the initial clients. You can use your email contacts to send a word out to potential clients. Or to ask your close acquaintances to refer you to individuals who are seeking the type of service you are offering. This is will be the most ideal way to garner a few initial clients and build upon positives reviews about your gig.
