How To Make $1 Million On Fiverr: Secrets From A Top Earner

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 08:00:00 -0400

It seems impossible -- earning $1 million from one $5 gig at a time? Here's how this freelancer did it.


Media Files:
https://blogs-images.forbes.com/laurashin/files/2017/04/Charmaine-Pocek.jpg?width=0&height=600




Tips For Making Money Via FiverrThe First Person To Earn $1 Million From Fiverr1. Provide exceptional customer service.2. Be communicative.3. Be persistent.4. Educate yourself.5. Leverage your credentials to charge higher rates.6. Take advantage of custom offers.7. If the customer is unhappy, do everything you can and then move on.

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 08:00:00 -0400

Charmaine Pocek is the first person to earn $1 million in profits from gig site Fiverr. The corporate recruiter began working on the site in 2011, charging $5 for resume revamps. After earning some certifications and parlaying her positive reviews into higher fees, she now charges up to $800 for an executive package.Read more about her storyhere.


Here are her tips for earning on the site.

Deliver more than what the client asks for. Pocek offers unlimited revisions so she can be sure they are happy with the final product.

Within 24 hours of an order being placed, even if you have 7-10 days to fulfill it, send a simple message to the customer saying, “Thank you so much for your order. I’ll be in touch.”

"When I started, I was doing resumes for $5 and it took me five hours. I didn’t hit success overnight," says Pocek.

If you’re a writer, get certification. If you’re a graphic artist, take some classes. Do what it takes to become better at your service.

Proactively get your education so you can stand behind your prices. Say, “I’m Charmaine Pocek, I’m a PhD, I have this certification, this certificate and it’s verified,” etc. Use your prior work experience and education to get immediate credibility.

This feature on Fiverr allows the sellers to ask the client questions about their needs — maybe you can throw in a LinkedIn profile as well, or free interview tips — to them make a solid offer you’re comfortable delivering on.

"I’ve done 20,000 orders, and I think I have less than 0.0001% negative feedback," says Pocek. "If someone has a problem, I do everything possible to satisfy them (although Fiverr doesn’t allow refunds). But not every buyer is ethical. Since you can’t make everyone happy, you just move on."
