My Fiverr name (for it is not my real one) is Michelle. Once upon a time, when I first started making videos over two years ago, I tried to use different names for every video. That idea was short lived, and I have since adapted Michelle for every video I do unless my buyers specify otherwise. You see, on Fiverr.com, I am most renowned for my video testimonials.
The main reason I am on Fiverr is because it fits so easily into my schedule. Working online, I can do gigs whenever I have the time to – even if that’s at three o’clock in the morning. As an actor in real life, it allows me the freedom to go to any spur-of-the-moment auditions and take as much time off as I like for shoots, vacations, etc. I also go to school full-time. Between acting, college, marriage, and friends – plus some “me” time every now and again – I am allowed all the flexibility I need with my schedule while working on Fiverr. That was something that I found particularly problematic in attaining when working a “normal” job, so to speak.
I have no job outside of Fiverr. I used to (and I would often have to give up an entire day off to get through my Fiverr gigs when I did both), but I quit just before pursuing my degree full-time. I don’t make enough to live on my own via Fiverr, but it’s a fantastic supplemental income to my husband’s job. I only know of a few sellers (two that come to mind) who are able to make survivable incomes through the website alone.
If you’re interested in getting involved with Fiverr, I suggest searching Fiverr to see what gigs are already around. The reason I’ve been so successful on the website is because I found a market that no one else, or very few other people, had tapped into at the time – video marketing. I was one of the first people to offer video testimonials on Fiverr. It got me featured on the website, which has tremendously impacted the amount of orders I receive. The most important thing to do on Fiverr is to create something unique – or mostly unique. If you can do that, you can monopolize the market until other people start copying you, at which point you’ll already be established (and hopefully featured).
I was introduced to Fiverr through my best friend, and I’ve since turned several other people I know onto it. While I would never suggest for anyone to take up Fiverr in place of their day job, if you’re looking for a legitimate website to make a few extra bucks, $4 per sale adds up quite nicely!
