You can create a Gig on Fiverr for almost an hour. All you need to do is first sign up on Fiverr.

While creating a gig you’ll have to insert your gig’s title, upload gig’s image, write gig description, and insert relevant tags and keywords.


1. Find your best skills – The first thing you need to do is sit down quietly and figure out the skills of which you are the strongest and stick to tasks related to them till you see some success.
E.g. if you are a person who can design logos and websites, then you should create and sell those gigs in Fiverr that are focused on logo creation and web designing.

2. Do your initial homework – Before diving into gig creation you must do some research to ensure that the gig you are planning to offer has interested buyers. What if you have a wonderful gig idea, but it didn’t sell? To avoid such a situation you must undertake the necessary research to understand what buyers in your niche are looking for.

3. Find popular gigs related to your skillset – One of the best ways of seeing success with Fiverr is to dig out the popular gigs related to your skillset, study them, then model your gig accordingly. Most important metrics you should look at while studying other gigs are its:

Pricing  strategy
Upsell strategy
Bonus strategy

4. Craft your gig’s title – Now as you are ready with all the research data, jump into gig creation. Here title creation will be your first step. The following are the steps you must follow to optimize your gig’s title. Based on your research data model your gig title, uses intriguing words into the title to ensure it catches your target customers the attention and is relevant to him/her.

For example, if you are offering a logo designing gig. You should consider using titles such as

> I’ll design 3 MAGNIFICENT logos in 24 hours
> I’ll design a PROFESSIONAL logos with free revisions
> I’ll design 2 STUNNING logos BONUS Free editable file

All the above titles are beautifully crafted because they include two important things.

First, they all have intriguing words such as MAGNIFICIENT, PROFESSIONAL, STUNNING, and BONUS. These words help to catch the attention of the right people.

Secondly, they all are appealing to the most important aspects that any person who wants to design a logo is looking at.

For example, the first title “3 MAGNIFICENT logos in 24 hours” will appeal to the people who are in urgent need of a logo.

The second title “PROFESSIONAL logos with free revisions” will appeal to the kind of people who want the option of incorporating their changes into logo design.

The third title “2 STUNNING logos BONUS Free editable file” will appeal to the people who have some knowledge of logo designing and want to customize the logo on their own.

5. Create your gig’s image – While doing initial homework you must have observed that some gigs have better images than other which makes them stand out. Shortlist such images and take inspiration from them while modeling your image.

Once you’re ready with the initial idea to use free online image editing tools such as Pixlr or BeFunky to create your gig’s image.

6. Write the gig’s description – Your gig’s description plays an important role in convincing your potential customers to place an order with you. So you must ensure that your gig’s description is precise, clear, and appealing to your potential customers.

Study other top related gig’s descriptions to get some inspiration and model your description on them.

Remember, don’t ever copy other gig’s descriptions it will get you banned. Just use theirs to get ideas to create your unique description.

Also, make sure you’re listing your gig into the right category to maintain its relevance.

7. Use the right tags – Tags play the most important role in ranking your gig higher. Most of the people don’t realize its importance, so it provides you with the best opportunity to overtake them if you optimize your gig properly using accurate tags.

8. Apart from all the points mentioned above, you need to make sure that your work is credible and unique on Fiverr.

    Fiverr is a great place to work online or get some little things done for a cheap price. Like you have stated you will work youself up your niche ladder at Fiverr. The more you concentrate on one thing the faster you will make some good money.
    This is of the better places to make a little money online, it still will take a little time to make yourself known to make the bigger bucks per GIG, I like that word it reminds me of a band playing.
    I like how you included the best ways to make your request for work stan out from the others, it is much like writing blogs for a website, good title, great keywords and helping someone with their task.
    Do you think you could make enough money per hour to make writing articles a gig?

    • Aps

      Oh, totally John. There are friends of mine earning big amounts monthly from Fiverr. But I also believe that Fiverr is becoming too competitive. Upwork is another great place where you can get worth for your experience.

  • LJ Kudos


    great post on Fiverr. Ive only recently heard about the platform and was curious as to whether I could use it for some outsourcing I may need doing?

    As you say, its better to be vigilant and do some research before you dive in and get work done by anyone. You want to get value for money…even if it does only cost a small amount.

    great post…thanks.

  • anna McGarvie

    I’ve heard about Fivverr, but didn’t really know what it was. It sounds like a great place to go to outsource things you don’t want to do! It also sounds like a great opportunity to make good money if you have a really good service to sell. I love how tags can help with ranking in Fivverr. Sounds very much like instagram!
    At this point, I don’t think I’ll be attempting to get gigs throught Fiverr, however, I may just look them up to outsourse some things in the future.

    Thanks for this artice! It was really good!

  • Ivan

    I once had an idea to start working from home with Fiverr. There are many awesome ways to do so. You can offer copywriting service, translation service, proofreading service, video editing, spokesperson service, etc. It’s truly amazing how many great options there are on Fiverr to work from home. The only problem is the competition. There’s a LOT of it. So the beginnings might be hard. However, it’s lucrative gig if you’re willing to push until you get noticed. Thanks a lot for sharing this post.

    • Aps

      Very rightly accessed Ivan. The competition is high as there are many who sell their services for very less. But it still is a good place to make a side income.

  • Nina

    I’ve heard a lot about Fiverr, but I’ve never used the service, and I haven’t thought about offering my own services. Thank you for a very detailed explanation of how to create your profile or gig and what to consider. I will look at this page in the near future and decide if people are looking for something like this that I can offer. Thanks!
    Friendly greeting,

    Hi Aparna
    I have used Fiverr for the first time not long ago to do a logo for my web site. I was presented with three different types which I use on my website. I found them to be very good, quick response and polite including after care inquiry. They are brilliant. Becoming a gig owner sounds interesting.

  • Kathy

    I have used fiverr quite a few times in the past for logo designs and always had a good experience. I had been considering creating my own gig but never got round to it. Thank you for such great advice on crafting a gig and I’ll certainly make a note of your suggestions. Kathy

  • C.N.

    Thank you so much for sharing the Fiverr platform with us, Aparna! I have visited the Fiverr website several times, and I like the fact that new and expanding businesses have the opportunity to market their brands, increase their visitor traffic, and procure more money…all with a professional team backing them, every step of the way. When we’re able to make money doing what we love, it’s not a “job;” it’s a fulfilling career and a dream come true. We should all want that for ourselves! Great read! God bless you!

  • Femi

    Hey Aparna,

    I have actually used Fiverr before where I have placed an order for say photo editing or proof-reading an article and I couldn’t agree more with your advice. Your guidance on how to craft engaging titles is particularly apt because as a customer looking for gig to order I can 100% identify with your tips

    If I ever follow through in doing a Fivver gig I will remember to check out your tips cos they are really helpful.

    Thank you

  • Lenka

    I’ve used Fiverr a few times, recently to have some work done on the speed of my website. I was very happy with the service I was provided with.
    I’ve never thought I could use Fiverr to promote my services as well but thanks to your article I’m getting into this. Increasing visibility online is necessary and Fiverr is a good platform for that.

  • Tom


    Really great article for people who are struggling with work during these lockdown periods. I have used Fiverr myself before, but I have never tried it to sell a service on there. After reading your article it seems pretty simple to set up and there are always people from all over the world looking to buy something that you or I have to offer.

    I will let you know how I get on with it and if I need any further help or have any questions then I will get in touch, if that is ok?

    Thank you for sharing and keep up the great work.

    All the best,


  • Habib

    I did not know there are so much you can do by being with the Fiverr platform. This is a great opportunity to monetize if you have an extensive knowledge or have a particular skills. I will pass this post onto my family and friends who will benefit from this opportunity. Thank you for sharing this with us.

  • Satz

    Fiverr is a good platform for freelancers and buyers, but it’s important to rely on your own expertise, as low-cost gigs – even the ones that have a 5-star rating – may end up hurting your business. It’s easy to become a seller on Fiverr and make money if you have a skill and willing to work.

  • Melissa Jiggetts

    Fiverr is a wonderful way to earn a very good income. You can offer so many different things on Fiverr so it is great for entrepreneurs. I know many who use it for blogging, art, printables, web design, and so much more. Thanks for sharing this valuable information!

  • Randy

    I now I just commented. Again, I want to say that you did a good job covering this topic. You also give good advice that relates to good copy writing. The use of the the intriguing words, such as, magnificent, stunning, and bonus, is an example of that.

    Thanks for sharing.


  • Randy

    I have found Fiverr to be helpful in the past. You have covered the topic thoroughly and given some good advice on how to make your presentation appealing. I wish I understood a little better about using tags. That is outside of the scope of your article, but it is something I need to understand a little better. I know it is similar to the importance of keywords.

    Many good designers advertise on Fiverr. For instance, if you need a book cover, you can find a lot of quality options there. If you are a book designer, this might be an option for you too.

    Again, thanks for the article.


  • evansese

    thanks for sharing, I look forward to share it on

  • Nimrodngy

    Fiverr is a very good way to earn some passive income by using our skills, passion and hobbys. I am a member of this platform and I can say that I managed to earn some money. Because I am a design engineer in the automotive industry, I help others who want to design different products. I have knowledge of both AutoCad and other 3D programs that are highly sought after by customers. For me, Fiverr is very useful and I really recommend everyone to try it.

  • osei kwame

    Thank you for this informative and educative article. I have really heard of fiverr but didn’t pay much attention to what they actually do. thank you for this amazing content and details you have provided for us.

    People really want to make money online but the internet is filled with fraudulent scammers

    • admin

      Fiverr is absolutely fabulous and the strength is that u dont get cheated because the person making or developing content for u is very careful as he/she wants a good review. 

      As a gig owner, u can earn a lot.
