It was like dream come true when I completed my first order on Fiverr and 14 days waiting time has started before receiving the payment.
I have waited so long for this and 50% struggle ends here because now I have full confidence and trust on Fiverr that I can earn money online and it is possible and also easy.
Hi, I am Chandranshu Gupta living in India. I am from a middle class family in India and I was having only one earning person in my family which was my father.
The Starting Story: How I get the Inspiration of making money Online
I don’t forgot the time of Feb 2018 when I was struggling day and night on Fiverr and Upwork to get my first order to believe that Online earning from home is possible.
It was the end of Jan 2018 when I randomly landed on this video and I found that earning from home is possible and we can earn decent amount from it.
The Mid: Struggle Started
Now its 15th of Feb 2018 and more than 15 days has passed and I was totally frustrated because my Upwork profile got approved but I was not getting any Jobs even I have submitted more than 30-40 proposals.
And same Story for my Fiverr profile I received the only one query message which also client was not replying after query message.
After 2 days I received a mail on my registered Email (On Upwork) and it was like below
After receiving this mail I got broke and was thinking that earning money from home is not as simple as I was thinking.
But after that mail I have searched many freelancers on Upwork and came to know that most of them are earning more than $1000 per month.
So, I decided not to Quit and made my second account on Upwork and started waiting for approval.
After few days on 20th of Feb 2018 I got a Notification on mobile of receiving a Order on Fiverr of $20 for editing a PDF eBook.
I was like below
I was totally surprised and blank.
I thought that my struggle ends here but I was wrong.
I am from India and now the problem is the client was from United States and due to 12 hour difference I was needed to awake whole night to get in touch with client when he comes online.
But the client was awesome and has given me 6 more orders one after another and due to this my fiverr gig was ranking on first page of Fiverr for the keyword “edit PDF”.
The Motivation Part
And After earning from 6 orders I was like over motivated because I was felling proud because now in my home there was the two earning person.
Also, after few days I was used to awake in night and sleep in day.
For motivating you I like to share my Income from Fiverr in 6 months and you can see below
I also earned some money from upwork but as per my prospective Fiverr is more better platform if you are new in freelancing world.
I did freelancing 8 months and then I started Blogging and again I am in struggling phase of blogging and soon I will share my success story of blogging on Yourstory.com.
The tricky Part
There are always some trick involve to crack anything same is true for freelancing websites.
I think after spending so many days on Fiverr I learned how fiverr works and how to get orders on fiverr because orders = Money.
As you know
Money = Orders on Fiverr
orders = Traffic on your Fiverr gig
Now for getting traffic on your Fiverr gig you need Ranking on first page of Fiverr so that if any client searches for your desired keyword then your gig pops up on the front.
Now the main Question here is How you can get ranking on the first page of Fiverr if your profile on fiverr is new??
Also due to new account your profile does not have any reviews then why anyone trust on you that you can do the job successfully.
In this situation you can do two things
Make your profile on Fiverr and create the gig in the area in which you are too good and wait for the orders to roll in. (This is what I did in my case)
But this is not all you need to do, You have to open your profile every day in the working hours of United states (because 80% of the clients on fiverr is from United states) and keep doing some searches and editing your other gig so that you profiles remains active during the time when there are high chances of getting query message/orders.
You also need some Luck in the first method
Note: You need a little Investment to do this method but you get the result sooner.
You have to arrange first few clients for yourself i.e your friend can hire you.
There are many intense that you do help and need help from your friend, same way ask your friend to hire you on fiverr if they need help from you from on-words.
I think you get my point and I know this is not the good practice to take money in exchange of help from your friend but you have to do this.
After getting few orders from your friends now you will have some good feedback and your gig start ranking in fiverr search engine.
Please note that there is a 20% Fiverr Commission on all orders and this means that you don’t receive all the money your friend is paying to fiverr.
If you are using the second method to get orders on fiverr then ask your friend to place the orders on max gap of 1-2 days because if the gap is long then it will not improve the ranking much.
The Final thought
If you want to make money online then you just need two things
Second: continuous effort.
If still you are struggling in making money from freelancing then there are other ways also from which you can make money without much effort. For example filling surveys and transcription jobs are the easiest one to do.
