Make Your First One Dollar Online
How does it sounds to be earning extra income other than your regular job?
I am going to show you step by step, without spending any penny where you are able to earn at least $1 online just by having an internet connection and a laptop.
To kick off, I will introduce the first platform where you can make extra money online – Fiverr! The online marketplace where users sell their services and products for $5. Seems too little for your liking? It may not sound like much money, but these little sales can add up to a few hundreds or even thousands of dollars in a month. These additional legit pay rise definitely sounds good for especially beginner trying to start making money on the internet.
What Is Fiverr
Fiverr is an international freelance marketplace especially for digital services; sellers from collage students to working adults, housewives to senior citizens, all offering their slice of time and skills.
The site gives people access to global network of buyers and sellers where everything starts at $5, from which it gets it name. Fiverr has gone through many changes over the years and now you can get almost any services as per your needs. For your info: The services offered on Fiverr are called “gig”.

Make Money With Fiverr Tips & Tricks
After you have an idea what you are going to provide, apply these tricks and kick-off your business.
Step 1: Observe and Study Successful Gigs
Once you have chosen a service that you want to sell, you need to confirm if there’s a market willing to buy that service. Observe and study the gigs of successful people on fiverr, study their gigs and understand what quality they are providing which is demanded on fiverr.
Step 2: Create Your First Fiverr Gig
To create a listing, simply go to your dashboard and click “create a gig”. Then add new gig.
Step 3: The Art Of Your Title
For the title, make it short and straight-forward. Bearing in mind these 3 pointers:
- What are you going to give them?
- What are you gonna help them achieve?
- Tell them and give them a time frame.
Example: I will give you 200 Facebook likes within 24 hours
Step 4: Create Your Gig Image
Get an image that stands out! You can get inspiration from your competitors. Download an app and edit your images or a banner and put some attractive words or hire someone on Fiverr to do it.
Step 5: Writing Your Gig Description
Do not copy others description because you can get banned from Fiverr. Get inspiration from top sellers and come up with your own distinctive description. Below are some simple formula that works for me when it comes to description:
- Tell them what they will gain
- Tell them what will they get (technical aspects of what they will get)
- Tell them terms of your services
- Tell them the number of revisions and whether you have a money back guarantee policy
- Ask them to order the product/services
Step 6: Use Accurate Tags / Keywords
What are your potential customers typing when they are looking for your service? Put tags that also serve as keywords. Many don’t realise that having your gig tagged correctly is very important to the ranking of your gig in Fiverrs search results.
You’ll usually find these keyword tags on the search bar. Just type some keywords related market and choose the relevant keyword suggestions by Fiverr.
Step 7: Add Video (Optional)
This additional effort contributes to the boost of sale and ranking. Get one and put it up.
Step 8: Set Up Dummy Account
Nice. You have your first gig up and running. Now it is crucial for others to find you. This step is not encouraged but it is powerful with little investment of around $2. Go create a dummy account on Fiverr and order your own products. After which, you of course leave a nice positive review for your gig.
Step 9: Drive Fake Traffic
It is always good to have real visitors entering your gig site. However, if you are unable to do so, just send around 200 fake visitors to your gig so as to boost your gigs impression and thus more visible to buyers.
This is tricky, don’t overuse this method and keep things naturally. If you have no idea in getting fake visitor – just buy (yes from Fiverr!)
Step 10: Never Give Up
Above are basic steps and elements for you to kick start and have a real taste of making your very first dollar online. Focus and don’t give up because I’m sure your effort will pay off.

Can You Make Money On Fiverr
Definitely! You can make money on Fiverr. It’s easier than you think. The opportunities are there and the key is to take advantage of every chance to be more visible on the platform.
There is something for everyone. Whatever your talent is, go ahead and get started today in area of your expertise. Also, start something you are not only good at but enjoy doing as well.
There are tons of people who are willing to spend money and buy your “time” to do things even though they can easily do it themselves. The problem is “time” is limited for many people including me. In my case, I would rather invest on marketing tools, logo designs, videos animation for my blog than to do it myself so I have more time to come up with better content than to spend time learning how to design my ebook cover etc.
Ultimately, you have to “TAKE ACTION” in order for your first dollar to flow…
