How You Can Make A Quick Five Bucks Online By Selling Your Weird Talent
Those are nifty skills to have, but not something that will let you earn a buck (unless you’re SO good at celebrity impressions you get onto Saturday Night Live like Jimmy Fallon did). Barring that, you could sign up for Fiverr. Fiverr is a site that lets you offer any skill you’ve got as “gigs” for a starting price of $5.
The first thing you’ll notice is the clean and inviting design
Signing up is easy. They don’t even use a full-on Captcha like most sites – just a simple random math problem.
If you have something you’re really passionate about that you do for fun, chances are you can turn it into a gig on Fiverr. All you need is a talent and few pictures that get the idea across.
Fiverr can even serve as an alternative to Etsy if you’re good at quickly making physical gifts.
If you can come up with an original idea, even something simple can do well.
This guy simply makes recordings of his voice saying lines given to him in a British accent, for instance.
The more creative “gigs” are actually pretty awesome. My favorite is Professor Hans Von Puppet, who will record a 30-second video explaining almost anything for $5.
The more creative the project, the more you can charge for extras. The Professor triples the price just to get the same video in Full HD.
Once you put up a gig on the marketplace, Fiverr will keep everything you have to do organized. Just check in, see what gigs are due when, and work through those with the top priority.
From there, keep track of analytics and experiment with variations on your gigs and gig extras.
Going back to the Professor, he’s expanded into videos showing how he makes his. By experimenting with his offerings, he’s managed to sell over 5,000 gigs worth at least $5 each.
