There is a marketplace for gigs and services that you can provide and earn some small money. Providing these gigs will not make you rich but if you have some time to spare, why not make some small change to pay for your lunch or dinner. The marketplace for this site is Fiverr Prices of gigs are priced at US$5/- and Fiverr will take $1/- as their fee. That will leave you with a profit of US$4/.
So what can you do to provide a service for $5/-. The answer is practically anything and everything that you can think of. For example you can read someone palms, shave your head, share a home made recipe, make someone laugh, help to upload pictures, write an essay, give out advice …….. etc. The gigs are separately into different categories so that you can put your gigs in the appropriate categories for easy search by the users or buyers. Buyers who bought gigs can provide feedback on the services that they have bought. A positive feedback on the service provider would mean that he/she is reliable and trustworthy.
To make Fiverr work for you profitably, first check out the popularity and ranking sections and have a feel of what gigs are popular, and how other sellers market their gigs. Learn from their strategy and tuned it to make it work for you. Remember that your gig must be easy to do and deliver on your part. You do not want to spend 3 hours working on a gig or a service that pays for only $5/-. Time is money, and you need to treat your time as a precious resource. In my opinion, you should not spend more than 30 minutes in servicing a gig. An example would be – ” Discover a easy method to get rid of pimples and have a clear skin in 7 days.” In this gig, you can write it a proven method that you can share for a clean and pimple free skin using Microsoft word document or in PDF format with added photos or a video. So when someone buys your gig, you simply attached the relevant file using Fiverr internal email system and deliver it to your buyer. For subsequent orders of the same gig, you can served the buyers in a matter of a few clicks of the mouse. Do remember that you need to have a Pay Pal account in order to be paid by Fiverr for your services.
Start thinking what gigs you can provide; and you can make some money using only 10 minutes of your time through Fiverr
