He writes your chosen text on his belly and dances in front of the camera. It’s pretty funny and at the same time a bit sad to see what people are willing to do just to make money, but I won’t suggest you to dance in front of the camera.
There are actually a ton of regular job postings on Fiverr, people who create logo designs, do SEO, voice overs, transcriptions, article writing and much much more. You can make money doing stuff like that, but there isn’t a lot of flexibility here because you can only charge $5 plus gig extras that are unlocked after you make several sales and there’s also a lot of competition.
Still, I won’t even suggest you to do that. What I want to share with you in this post is a strategy that I learned from a few courses, that allows you to make money with Fiverr with very minimal work: setting up Fiverr gigs (bigger part of the work) and then spending ten to fifteen minutes a day fulfilling any orders that you get.
Sounds too good to be true, continue reading and you will learn how it’s done.
The Fiverr Hands Free System
What are we going to do is offer information on Fiverr. Yes, guidebooks, tutorials, training videos, etc. In case you are wondering Fiverr has no problem with that and it doesn’t violate their terms of service.
So, first thing that you need to do is find something to sell. Don’t worry, if you have nothing to teach, what we are going to do is look for PLR products. PLR stands for Private Label Rights meaning we can resell the product, edit it if needed and keep all the money.
On these sites you can find hundreds of PLR products, but most of them are very poorly written so, make sure to go through them and see, if they are actually worth paying money for. It might be a bit of challenge to find good PLR so, you might want to check out paid PLR as well.
For starters, if you don’t want to spend any money just look for something that is decent quality and if needed edit it to make it worth paying $5.
Creating Your Fiverr Gig
If you followed the first step you now have a product to sell. Next, you need to create your Fiverr gig, which will be your sales page for the product.
First, you need to write an attention grabbing title. You have 80 characters that you can use.
Just because you are selling information, you don’t want to write something like: I Will Give You An Ebook On XYZ Topic For $5. That’s not going to bring you results.
You would want to word it more like this: I Will Teach You How To [Topic of your content] For $5.
Choose a category that best fits your product.
You will need to create an image for your gig. The dimensions should be: 682 x 459. If you don’t have any design skills you might want to look for someone on Fiverr to do it for you. Yet creating a simple image yourself can do fine even if it doesn’t look wonderful.
You want to use all your copywriting skills and write a good description. You don’t necessarily need to use up all the characters, but it won’t hurt. Do make sure to use the formatting options to make your description easy to read.
You can have 5 tags. Don’t just use any words that come to mind, you need to pick 5 highly related terms. While you are writing a keyword you will see suggestions appearing, this means that these are the things that people search for on Fiverr, if you are typing in something and you don’t see it in the suggestions it’s probably not worth entering into the tags.
You want to set this for 1 day because it really won’t take you more than 5 minutes to deliver the gig and by having it set for 1 day you also get extra exposure. Now, if you only check your computer once every two days then you might want to adjust it accordingly.
Instructions For Buyer:
Here you would normally write in questions for the job that needs to be done. For example, if you are selling logos you would ask: what colors I should use for the logo, what kind of design do you need, etc. but in our case we don’t need this stuff and you can just leave it blank.

What To Expect
I know what’s going to happen the next morning you wake up. You will check you Fiverr account and won’t see any sales, you will think to yourself that this doesn’t work and continue with your life.
What you should realize is that you will need to work hard to get those sales. You won’t wake up the next day with more money than you know what to do with. Believe me that won’t happen. What you will need to do the next day is to set-up more gigs. You can have 20 gigs per account and you should work steadily to getting your first account maxed out by creating 1 or 2 gigs a day.
You might start seeing your first sales before you even get to those 20 gigs, I did, but if you don’t, then you need to check out your stats. Even, if you don’t make sales you can see some stats in your back office. How many impressions and clicks are your gigs getting. This will help you see what niches and products work and what doesn’t, if you get a lot of impressions, but not many clicks maybe you need to improve your image, if you get a lot of clicks, but just not getting the sales then probably your descriptions need to be improved.
Once you have reached your 20 gig limit it doesn’t mean that you reached your income potential, you can start another Fiverr account and add another 20 gigs and then another and another. So, your income is basically unlimited.
So, be realistic and don’t expect to see immediate results be prepared to put in the work.
Delivering Your Gig
The last part that I almost forgot to include is delivering the gig. It’s very easy to do, once someone orders your gig you will get a notification email sent to you. You click the link in the email and you will land on the delivery page where you attach the ebook file, ask them to leave feedback and click to deliver the order.
That’s it! The first time you can take 5 minutes to do it because you will be so excited that you made a sale, but later once you are used to it, it won’t take you more than a minute.
This is by far the easiest way to make money on fiverr. You don’t need to write articles, transcribe audio or design logos for someone else that takes a bit of time to do. All you are doing is finding a product to sell, creating a gig for it, optimizing the gigs and delivering products to your customers, which takes no time at all.
