One Side Hustle That Pays!

Hello lovelies! Today I want to introduce a side hustle that I have been using successfully for more than 4 years.  My only regret is that I did not do it sooner. :)  The side hustle that I am talking about is Fiverr. 

When I first heard on Fiverr in 2010 I was instantly put off by the $5 jobs I saw offered on the platform. As an experienced designer I felt that a $5 job was not an option for me. Years passed and then one day after I relocated to the Bahamas and essentially had to start all over, I decided to give it a try. I really needed extra money. Imagine my surprise when after just one week jobs started coming in and not only that, I was able to send custom orders to my clients which were all whatever price I decided was fair. Turns out, $5 is the very base price for an item on Fiverr and you can set your own price. Needless to say, I was encouraged to keep going and now I can truly say as a "Fiver Select" seller with a 5 star rating that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made.


How Fiverr Works 

You do not have to be a designer to work on Fiverr and you do not have to do labor intensive work to earn money. Just find something you like to do that you do well, set your price and open your shop. Don't overthink it. My simple jobs start at $15 but Fiverr has 3 tiers of prices/packages you can set, my highest is $50. My Median package is $30. Many times people request custom packages though and they can be hundreds or even more than a thousand. It depends on what your customer needs.

To better understand how Fiverr works, there are two parties involved: 

  • Sellers: A seller is anyone looking to sell a service to earn money. Simply put, sellers are freelancers showcasing their skills and services to prospective buyers. A seller lists their services on Fiverr alongside the amount they charge.
  • Buyers: A buyer is anyone looking to purchase a service on the platform. Buyers can use the search tool to browse seller profiles and find the ones who meet their requirements before placing an order. The bottom line is that buyers hire sellers to accomplish specific tasks.
One of the things I like best about Fiverr is that you can get help creating anything on their platform. From interior design to ghost writing, web design, architectural drawings and video creation to some pretty unusual yodeling for instance. Trust me, you can find whatever you can imagine and then some. :)  Fiverr also has multiple ways to make money on their platform.  Sign up and invest in some of the talented people there. Many businesses use the design services to grow their businesses and most times it is at the fraction of the cost they pay elsewhere. This allows for business opportunities and networking and most of all, PROFIT! Start using Fiverr to grow your business, trust me it is one of the best strategies I have ever used!


1. You can sign up here for Fiverr's affiliate program if you would rather earn money that way. The sign up is pretty simple and you will have all the information and tools you need at your disposal to succeed.


2.  Have videos for tictoc and youtube created for your customer base through Fiverr


3.  Get your own design ideas created for prints,  tees and mugs. Sell on Etsy, Redbubble or shopify 


Well, I do hope this helps you to try Fiverr, it is worth the effort of signing up. Your pocketbook and business will thank you for it!

You Are My Sunshine!!!

 Well, my dear blog, it's been a looooooooong time since I showed you any love but I promise to make it up to you.

There are so many things that happened to me in the last 5 years. I moved from the US back to the Bahamas and then the love of my life passed away 2 years ago in my arms, in the middle of Covid. Needless to say, life in the last few years has been really challenging at times. Forever the optimist though, I look for the bright spot in everything. Today I was browsing and came across these little beauties. They really made me smile. If my husband was here I could see him purchasing one for me and hiding it under my pillow. :) Today is the anniversary of his passing and I miss him terribly but I realize his spirit is still here with me, always showing up in little ways so I know he is here.
