My journey in finding some awesome websites for writing has found the treasures hidden on an island called Fiverr.com. Worried that you won’t earn up-front for your well thought out, researched and SEO-perfected content and won’t even make you a dime? Perhaps it won’t even get published on the site for some sort of technicality or unlikely cause. I have found a solution to your dilemma.
While making some new contacts on Bubblews.com, I have discovered a gig site called Feverr.com. I was immediately fascinated with the site, because it is the perfect place to hang your hat, to park your gig, to draw potential clients to your quality content that NAA, Demand Studios, and other website content platforms have turned down. We don’t need their stinking platforms, because we have found one for free and it even offers more to clients than website content material. Get creative and sell ANYTHING!
There is a plethora of gigs that you can advertise. If you are an editor, translator, graphic designer, video maker, creative artist, just about anything, you can create a profile and advertise your gig or more than one gig on the site. There are people who sell creative pictures of things like sequenced messages on their lips or video messages specifically for a client. The possibilities are endless.
The man that told me about it has sold over 700 gigs at $5 a piece. My plan is to write on a particular niche that I have expertise in for web content. Eventually I will branch out and get more creative.
So how do I get on-board?:
While I don’t have a referral link and I wouldn’t throw it out there anyway, I will say that you need to go to Fiverr.com and create a profile. It is pretty self explanatory and the only issue I had trouble with is the picture. I had to fix it at a certain pixel of 682X459, making it stretch, but still looking good.
Do your best to sell yourself. Don’t be afraid to share what you are the best at. You can even share a video to advertise yourself. There are many people who are doing well on the site. There is a way for clients to review you and the potential is endless.
Like with anything that sounds too good to be true, there is usually something that causes you to hesitate a little bit about joining. I was hired for my first gig and have submitted it. Right away I noticed that I earned just $4. Fiverr.com charges 20% per gig. Also, your payment won’t clear for 14 days after the buyer accepts your gig. The reason being is to make sure that there aren’t any conflicts between you and the buyer (or seller).
Fiverr.com is a great platform for writers and creators alike. There are many avenues to choose from. You can write where you want to be.
