What is Fiverr?

Before I continue to make an endless list of all the professional services offered by Fiverr, I would like to take you through the journey of what Fiverr is, when it started and how it works.

Fiverr is an online marketplace for freelance services like writing, translation, graphic design, video editing, and programming, and so on.

The History

Fiverr was founded by Micha Kaufman and Shai Wininger, and was launched in February 2010. Their idea was that of a marketplace with a two-sided platform for people to buy and sell a variety of digital services offered by freelance contractors. 

How Fiverr Works

Any service offered in Fiverr is called a gig and the services start at $5 and can rise to thousands of dollars with gig extras. From inception, the growth of Fiverr has undeniably being a very positive one and it’s a platform where you can get your work done faster wearing such a high shoe of confidence. This is because of the following unmatchable attributes:

* The payment protection is highly guaranteed. Payment is only released to the freelancer when you’re satisfied and approve the work you get.
* There’s hourly charges; charges are fixed.
* Fiverr operates 24/7 and you have access to its services anytime.

In Fiverr, every freelancer looking for work is considered as a seller and he lists the type of services he can render along with their price tag. Your chances of being hired hugely depend on your experience both in your field or niche and your experience in Fiverr. On the other hand, If you are looking to purchase a service, you are considered as the buyer.

On Fiverr, buyers hire sellers in order to help them accomplish their works. Either a buyer searches through the profiles for sellers that meet their requirements or a seller looks through the buyer request for works that relate to his field or niche. Once a buyer and seller meet with each other, they reach an agreement on certain things like a goal, time frame, and price.

How to Register

Making money on Fiverr is only possible when you have a registered account with them. Registration for a new Fiverr account is completely free! All you need to do is to sign up for a new account.

  • Go to
  • Click on the Join link at the top right-hand side of the page.
  • You can register with your email address, your Facebook account, or your Google account.
  • Provide the necessary required details of yours, you’ll get an email confirmation link, confirm your account, and then start exploring.

Creating a Unique Profile

Once your account is created, the most important thing you need to do is to create your profile. Ensure your profile is arranged and presented in such a way that it can sell your skills and abilities in your absence.

This determines how many buyers that will hire you. Let your profile be professional. Write a compelling piece about yourself that can convince your buyer to use your services.

How to Create a Gig

After optimizing your profile, it is time to create your gigs (services). 

Log in to your Fiverr page. 

Click on Gig at the top menu bar and then select Create a New Gig

Enter your Gig Title in the space provided. This is a brief description of what you’ll do for the client.

Examples of compelling ways to write your Gig title are:

“I will create an original and professional logo for your business”
“I will write an optimized article for your blog”
“I will do on-page and off-page SEO optimization”
“I will create an amazing flyer for you in 24 hours”

Note that different niche requires a different approach in writing the Gig title.

Choose a category and sub-category for your gig. Choose the right category that reflects the services you are offering. Fiverr requires you to verify your skills before you are able to choose certain categories.

Choose the necessary search tags. Tags are directly linked to the keywords on Fiverr. These keywords differ, based on the gig. You can choose a maximum of 5 tags. It is advisable to do keyword research for your services. For instance, if my gig is about logo design, I will include tags as logo design
business logo
minimalist logo
3d logo
graphic design logo

Save and continue to the next page, Scope, and Pricing. There are basically three packages, Basic, Standard, and Premium. You can choose to change the name of each package to suit you. You can specify the price of each package, the delivery period, and the description of each service. You can also offer gig extra for faster delivery.

The next page is Gig Description and FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). Make sure you spend more time here describing your gig in a way that a potential buyer will be eager to work with you. You can go the extra mile in answering every potential question that might arise from the buyer. Try and make it simple and concise. Avoid typographical errors.

On the next page, you specify the Requirements. This is the necessary information you need from the client before you start executing your task

Upload one or more images that describe your services. If you can make a video too, it will boost your visibility. Take a look at other people’s gigs to have an idea of how to prepare your gig image. Do not copy images from the internet or any other person as Fiverr can remove it automatically.

Publish your gig after filling all the requirement. Make sure you go through all information you have filled to make sure they are correct. Promote your gig on social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn)

Take Orders

Once you have published your gig, it is now active. You can start getting orders from customers. Always be online and do have the mobile app of Fiverr to help you stay connected. You can get orders without promoting your gig especially if your service is low competition. The disadvantage is that you will have low sales.

Lastly, be proactive! Do not sit and wait till a buyer searches your profile and asks for your gigs. You’ll get more gigs when you work proactively. Once you see a request for a gig by a buyer, check the requirements, the time frame, and the price tag. If it’s convenient for you, send your offers directly to them(the buyers).

Buyer Request Page

This is an important page for you to get frequent jobs by clients.  Buyers are not always patient to go and start searching for Fiverr pages to get their services rendered. So they use this particular page as a shortcut to getting the service faster. Many buyer’s requests go through this page every 24 hours.

You can be able to get at least a fair share of orders for your services if you utilize this page every day. The secret to getting the buyer to accept your request is simple. Always be among the first three sellers to send an offer. If you can, be the first.

Now when you do, please put the least fee of $5 in there. When the buyer inboxes you, then you can have upward negotiation from there. There is a time interval in the day when it is best to access the Buyer Request Page in Nigeria.

Between 12:30 pm- 2 pm Monday to Friday
Between 7 am – 8:30 am   Monday to Friday
