Let’s make some money with Fiverr shall we?
It gets rough when you’re broke eating Ramen and praying that nothing else comes up that you may need to pay for while in school.
I know because I’ve been there.
A full-time college student trying to maneuver through coursework, homework, projects, social events, and trying to stay sane was already a full-time job.
Often, working is the last thing you want to add to your juggling act.
However, there are lots of opportunities for you to work and make money straight from your dorm room. That’s right! Earn an income in your PJs.
Fiverr offers opportunities for you to make some extra cash while doing things you already know how to do.
This post may contain an affiliate link or two, which means I’ll receive a commission if you make a purchase through my link, this doesn’t cost you anything extra. Feel free to read the full disclaimer.
WTH is Fiverr?
Good question! Fiverr is like a mall for businesses that need freelancers. They house freelancers in almost every digital aspect you can think of from writing to website creation.
Basically, a company has a job that they may not have time to do themselves. They hop on Fiverr and find a freelancer that can do the job.
If you’re a match they pick you and pay you. After you deliver the job you make the cash! Simple as that.
Fiverr has so many opportunities for college students to make some extra cash let’s get into how you can make some of this money.
This post is all about how to make money using Fiverr.
How Will You Make Money With Fiverr?
Everyone and their dog has a website these days.
But, everyone is not as computer savvy as you are. Utilize your WordPress skills and offer your services as a website designer for people looking to bring their ideas to life.
Also, a cool thing about working for yourself is you don’t have to take on anything you don’t want to.
Make sure you are going to be able to deliver what the customer is looking for before you apply to a job posting.
Take a break from writing long boring college essays and write a conversational piece on a subject you might actually find interesting. And the best part about it is YOU GET PAID TO WRITE IT!
Get paid to write for bloggers that are too busy doing other things to write their own content and make anywhere from $20-$300 a post depending on your writing skills.
Also, I recommend starting off taking those lower paying gigs so that you can get some good reviews under your belt. After that the sky is the limit! Know your worth sis.
Social Media Management
You’re on your phone all the time anyway. Why not make some money from it. Fiverr has gigs that allows you to connect with businesses that need social media managers.
This can include growing an Instagram account, making a LinkedIn page, or simply responding to their customer’s comments on their Facebook.
What’s even better is this can also be something you add to your resume when you are job hunting after you graduate.
Having a social media management position on your resume will look good to an organization that is breaking into that realm of the marketing world.
Therefore, giving you an advantage when job hunting.
All businesses need a logo that’s law. Not really but IYKYK.
Having a logo sets you apart from any other business no matter if you are selling the same products. The logo gives you brand identity.
Creating a logo for a business is a big deal. It can bring in some big bucks if you are a graphic designer and know your way around Adobe Photoshop.
You will be able to bring someone’s brand to life and they will pay you for your time and services.
Business Card Design
Business cards are also apart of a brand’s identity. Creating a design that a business plans on putting in the hands of potential clients is a huge deal.
So, blow them away with beautiful designs and get those reviews up on Fiverr and start selling business card designs.
If you have ever edited a YouTube video, then you know the headache. Especially when you have to add graphics, sounds, and make stuff pop-up right on time.
Be a YouTuber’s peace and edit their videos the way they want them. They will provide you with detailed instructions on how they want their videos to look and it’s up to you to bring them to life.
You can set up this gig and charge whatever you think your time is worth. Always try to be fair in pricing.
All my journalism and English majors make some noise! This is our time to shine. Although you probably read and write enough as it is you can turn your tired eyes into cash.
You hate seeing grammatical errors in writing online. If you see any in my blog posts please tell me! I know they are there. Pesky little devils!
So, help someone out by proofreading their content and providing feedback on their writing.
It’s not only giving you a little extra change in your pocket but it’s going to rid the online world from one more misspelled word!
If you are bilingual this one is for you. Being able to translate content for a business that is trying to reach a broader audience will bring in the money.
You can charge by the length of the document or by the difficulty of translation.
You’ll be helping a business reach new customers or providing valuable information by breaking the language barrier between them.
Look at you potentially slightly saving the world and ish!
Know Your Value
Don’t underestimate yourself. Things you find as second nature to you could be the key to making someone’s business a success. Set your prices based on your talent.
However, don’t fluff your qualifications. If you are going to be a quality seller on Fiverr you’re going to have to deliver quality content.
No plagiarism, no missing deadlines and no ghosting! And always grammatically correct! Use Grammarly to check over your work when doing any form of writing.
