How Fiverr works for freelancers
The major difference between popular freelance marketplaces like Upwork and Fiverr is the process of working with clients.
Working with clients on Upwork means constantly pitching for new jobs. So new work doesn’t happen in the background without your input — you have to be proactively on the hunt for new work when you want it.
Fiverr is a completely different story.
With Fiverr, you essentially productive your service via Gigs.
Each Gig describes a specific deliverable you will provide in exchange for a set price, starting with the words, “I will…”
You can offer different packages that involve bare-bones offerings, up to “the works”. You can also offer Gig extras that allow people to customize your offering with related services they’ll benefit from.
But the best part about Fiverr is that because of the way Gigs are set up, clients are empowered to make purchases without even talking to you.
This means that if your Gig is the right fit for their needs, at the right time, you can be making sales while you sleep.
Undoubtedly, from time to time, people will still get in touch with questions or to ask for custom deliverables. Using Fiverr doesn’t mean that you can do away with business development completely, though it will certainly help you streamline the process.
At the end of the day, if you want to make more money as a freelancer, reducing the time you spend actively pitching for jobs means that you have more time available to do the work.
Fiverr is a marketplace where anyone can sign up and sell services from $5
