    How to make more than $4 from Fiverr

    I’m a huge fan of fiverr because of how I can always get something amazing, outsourced at a measly price of 5 dollars. There’s always something really useful just waiting to be paid for and it seems like everyone is talking about how you can get something done for you, at practically no cost.

    But what about the people who offer the services, we don’t hear much about them? Sitting at making 4 dollars for every gig that you offer someone, seems like it’s not even close to being worth it. At such a little amount of money, why would you even bother entering into something like it? There are ways though to escape it all.

    Here are some of the best tips towards making more than four 4 dollars for offering your services on fiverr:

    Offer half the service:

    Don’t through everything you’ve got into your one gig. If you’re doing something like an ebook cover, ask them for a second payment and you’ll convert it into a 3d cover for them. There are heaps of small things that you can do and take advantage of to make that little bit of extra money.

    Sell yourself:

    They’ve bought the gig, so why not take advantage of being in contact with the client and selling them your other services. This has worked for me many times, offer a service but only have it as a small part of the bigger picture. Clients will often go and buy the rest of your services at a price such as $25 if you give them much more.

    Offer something that involves no work at all:

    WordPress themes are a great example of this. Usually themes are released under a gpl license which gives you the rights to re-distribute something. Why not buy a premium wordpress theme and then sell it on fiverr for much less. It would only take 30 seconds to complete the order and involves no work at all.

    As long as you can find something that people would be willing to grab hold of and that won’t take much time out of you to complete. You should be able to make some good money from little work, all you have to do is find that thing that people would want.


    If you put things into perspective, there are certain ways that you can use to take advantage of fiverr and actually make more than just $4 from it. As long as you just be creative and make sure that you’re taking advantage of the skills that you have – money making on fiverr should be a breeze for you.

    I see your presence many times on top list blogs these day Peter. I have not heard about this service yet. But I think unless you have a good reputation you will have few offers from the community. In this case, building a good blog is always the best suggestion.

    it is a great website to earn quick money but i did not understand your point regarding the themes. How can i make money by premium WP themes


    Peter J

    Woothemes, buy a premium membership where you have access to all of the themes and then sell a service where you will give everyone a copy of a theme of their choice if they pay the 5 dollars on fiverr.



    Its okay, for what you said. But doesn’t it have a tracking code inside. I thought they would cancel my subscription if I did that. please let know.


    Peter J

    Heaps of people do it, one of the offers on there a persons giving away 1 wootheme theme for $5 and they’ve already had over 60 orders. Not bad :)

    Do let us know when you make your first income via Fiverr.


    Charleen Larson

    I’m not sure I understand your point about the premium themes.

    I use Elegant Themes, and I can tell you there are frequent updates, especially after the tim thumb dust-up a few months ago. I’d think you run the risk of your buyers coming back to you, demanding updates.



    Well yes, being creative and utilizing the skills does really helps a lot to earn better. Thanks Peter for this useful info :)



    Can I sell the premium wordpress themes at fiverr at a lesser price than actual market cost ?
    or would it be a wrong tact?


    Joann Moann

    I just started at Fiverr. Was just wondering why the pay was $4, but I guess they have to keep a dollar for themselves.


    Madhav R

    Your post is like guide post for my journey , Thanks for sharing your experience



    Its nice idea about the WordPress themes you are telling about. But is that completely legal, if I sell a premium theme won’t I get into any trouble later?
