How to Get Started as a #Writer on #Fiverr

I have to say I mostly do proofreading and other things on Fiverr, but I was writing blog posts for different people for a while over one summer on there. I stopped doing it because my proofreading was taking off on Fiverr and I didn’t have the time to devote to writing.

Basically you would start by signing up on Fiverr.
Check out the Writing/Translation section of Fiverr to see what others are doing as far as gig offerings … how many words will they write for $5 (remember you only get $4 of that)? How fast is their turnaround? How fast can you turn something out?
Then fill in a wonderful profile with your photo and information about yourself. Check out other profiles to see what others have written. If you'd like to see my profile and gigs, I am here.
After your profile is polished, create a gig. You can create as many gigs as you like. I believe you have to wait 30 days to be able to offer Gig Extras like charging more for extra fast delivery, writing more words, accepting a tip, etc.
Offer, for instance, to write a 250-word blog post for a business for $5. Can you do that in about 15 minutes? Good! Then you’ll be making double minimum wage in America while working from home! You can also offer to be a ghost writer for a certain amount of words for one gig, write an ebook, write marketing materials, whatever you are great at!
Yes, there are tons of other writers on Fiverr, so you have to stand out. Make a video to go with your gig and make sure you say your price is “exclusively on Fiverr” or it will be rejected.
Use social media, friends, anything you can think of, to promote your gig.

I have to add here that I make a lot more money writing for regional parenting magazines using the resource I wrote. You can get it FREE on Kindle Unlimited. Otherwise you can buy it as an ebook but I recommend the print version so you can highlight, Post-It note and write in it! You can make money writing on Fiverr and also do this at the same time! I love working from home ... oh, the options!
