I’m going to make this very simple for you. The purpose behind this post is that at Animaker, we get a lot of queries every day regarding how to effectively use our characters to promote gigs in Fiverr. With every passing day, the number of people using videos to promote Fiverr gigs is only increasing. In fact, many thanked us for Animaker as it had helped them make quality videos which in turn made a lot of money. We, therefore, want to help you understand how Fiverr means great money, and how videos can help you with that.
(Also, if you are in a hurry you can skip to the end for a quick summary and a checklist to how to post videos on Fiverr)
Fiverr has been around a very long time now. You must have used it. But for those living under the cave, Fiverr is a is a global online marketplace offering tasks and services, beginning at a cost of $5 per job performed, from which it gets its name.
Why should you use Fiverr? Simple. To make money. Lots of money in an interesting way. Fiverr offers you easy money for things you love to do. There have been numerous success stories where a great number of people have made more than $500 every month.
However, not everyone in Fiverr makes a lot of money. Fiverr guarantees you money, but if you want to make as much as $500 every month, then you need to apply certain tricks. Want to know how? Then keep reading.
WHY SHOULD YOU PROMOTE FIVERR GIGS
Fiverr is first and foremost a marketplace. Therefore, you need to make people aware of your gigs. There are almost 5 million people on Fiverr offering their gigs. How can you stand apart from these humongous number of people.
Promote your gigs. That’s not just the most effective way of advertising your services, but is also the only way Fiverr offers you. Promote them. Market them.
Now that we know promoting is the only option Fiverr offers you, it means everyone can promote. What can you do to stand out becomes the next question. The answer depends on how differently can you promote them.
Promote your gig through a video. Market your service through a video. Please take a look at the picture below from Fiverr itself.
That’s right. Not me, but Fiverr tells you that a video promotion is far superior than a voice over or an image promotion. Also I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Not everyone posts videos. That’s true, a majority of people do not promote through video. The reasons are aplenty. They may be lazy, or they just take Fiverr for granted. Not you, you are here in for some serious money. This is how you are going to make money - By posting videos. Post videos and lure audience. You can then, convert them as your potential buyers.
Not just that, with a video post you can lure audience even from outside Fiverr. That’s right, you can post them on social media. It is a foregone conclusion the world of social media is addicted to videos. Bring them to Fiverr through your Facebook page. We are not even talking about a video the size of a feature film. 60 SECONDS. MAX. That’s it, a minimum of 10 seconds and a maximum of 60 seconds. Less than 50 MB (if you’re really concerned about videos eating up your hard disk)
Your must need list for the video
A very short introduction of you.
Describe your gig.
Mention the details of the final output (if it’s a logo, then talk about the resolution, size, and other necessary information)
Time taken to deliver the product.
What is your fees. It’s usually five dollars.
End it with a note your that gig is offered exclusively on fiverr.com.
Now that we have established that video promotion is a great way to reach out to your buyers, let’s move on to what kind of videos we can use. Here is where you can differentiate yourself once again from the rest of the community. The majority of video promotions in Fiverr are live action, which means anything new like an animation video promotion will stand out. Infact that is the very reason why I decided of writing this post. Users of Animaker many a times use Animaker exclusively for Fiverr promotion. Many of them, in fact thanked us for the product which let them make interesting animation videos very easily.
Okay, as we have reached the end, i would like to leave you with a checklist on how to make your Fiverr promotional videos effectively.
