How To Make Money On Fiverr. Is It Worth It?

Is Fiverr For You?6124074a007c4204c06136bb10731f111537724067 cropped 1541640853 optimized - How To Make Money On Fiverr. Is It Worth It?

If you’re looking to make a quick buck online and don’t really want to go the route of working for others or building a huge website then Fiverr.com may be the right fit for you. 

Why do I say this? 

Simple really. On Fiverr.com you can create virtually any type of gig (legal of course) and then let the platform promote it. You may want to offer a service like writing blogs like I did when I started years ago. Or you can create an original gig of you singing Happy Birthday, etc. The sky really is the limit on how to make money on Fiverr. 

How much does it cost to join?

Nothing. And the gigs start at $5.00 per and yes, the platform does take their cut of $1.00 per $5.00 you make. Welcome to the digital economy. Regardless, if you are just starting out and need some exposure for your work whatever that may be, Fiverr could be the way to do it. 

Can you get rich on this?

I wouldn’t say rich but there are some people who charge upwards of $500.00 or more for video making gigs and the like. I am sure some of those people are doing fairly well. 

Why do I promote Fiverr?

I have been a member for 8 years now and have made some money doing it from home. No, not a ton but I can work when I want to, set my own prices and even pause my gig if I have to go out of town, doctors or whatever. I write blogs and articles and what I make depends on how many gigs I get. To date I have 306 positive feedbacks and have probably completed about 1000 gigs. You can search my gig at user name “dobguy1″‘

Why You Should Brand Yourself062fd8e723b0bfcffa8fb255a603f26b1541640889 cropped optimized - How To Make Money On Fiverr. Is It Worth It?

Branding is basically creating your own digital footprint. Regardless of what you are promoting on Fiverr, it’s important to create your own unique brand that showcases what you do in the most positive light. And while at first you may not see much activity on your ‘gig’, with time that will change. The more gigs you complete, the more feedbacks you will recieve and then more orders will come in as your reputation online grows. Once you have completed your first 50 gigs, you will see an increase in traffic and activity on your gig page. And that means more money in your pocket. The key to becoming successful will be to keep at it and don’t stop until you see results which on Fiverr happens pretty fast. Your brand will start to become who people identify you online as and that’s a good thing. 

Branding yourself and your gig will take some work. And the best way to do this is to keep producting quality work for your clients. Don’t sell yourself short either. If you feel you are worth more than the standard $5.00 then by all means charge it. But keep it low enough so you are competitive in the marketplace. 

Fiverr is a great place to start building your reputation and gaining sales and traffic to your website. It doesn’t take long to get the ball rolliing and you will find as you go along that sales will really jump if you get 5 stars on each of your completed gigs. While some people won’t leave you a feedback, a good percentage will. You will also gain repeat customers if your work is professional and well recieved. You will know if people are liking what you offer within the first few gigs. Keep pushing for quality versus quantity on Fiverr. It will pay itself off in the end. 

Work At Home Alternative To Fiverr

Of course you may want to start working on your own website if you haven’t already, offering your services or products to peple all over the world. DId you know there are billions of people actively searching online for work at home opportunities? It’s true and all you have to do is learn the industry. But it’s amazing how many people don’t take advantage of what’s out there. 

Personally, I do both Fiverr and work on Wealthy Affiliate. What’s Wealthy Affiliate? it’s a platform that let’s you learn how to work in affiliate marketing and has all the training, site content and hosting so you can do everything right on one website. You don’t have to go outside of it to get high quality hosting, domains, site builders and support to build your website. It’s all on the platform. While it’s free to join I do recommend joining the Premium membership because it has all of the training and support that’s ongoing. With the free membership you get two free websites and the platforms domain so you would have to find the continued training elsewhere. Even with the free membership you get the first ten lessons for free so it’s worth checking out. It’s the easiest way I have found to start your own business from home for practically nothing. Wealthy Affiliate Premium memberships will cost you $49.00 a month. But that covers everything and I have been there for three years and the price hasn’t changed. 

Regardless of what you choose to do both Fiverr and Wealthy Affiliate have free memberships. And both are worth at least taking a look at. Both of these platforms have allowed me to work at home full time and really find my own personal independance without having to fight traffic or deal with bosses who value your work but not much else. As always, I invite your comments and suggestions as to how I can improve this website to be a better user experience for you.

Looking For Affiliate Manager Jobs? I May Have Found One For You

Affiliate Marketing Manager Jobslogo - Looking For Affiliate Manager Jobs? I May Have Found One For You

Have you been looking for affiliate manager jobs? Do you know what it takes to be a manager in affiliate marketing? Did you know that working as an affiliate marketer, you are your own manager?

That’s right because contrary to what you may have heard, affiliate marketing is a job that anyone can do at any age and at any skill level. How do I know?

Because I have been working as an affiliate managing my own website for three years now.

What’s the best way to learn how to become an affiliate marketer? Click HERE to start right now today!

It’s pretty freakin easy if you ask me how to become a successful affiliate marketer. You see, three years ago I was writing articles for people who needed them to put on their websites. I didn’t know why they needed them, I just knew that by writing these articles I would get paid. Plus, it was fun researching different topics and writing about them. I learned something and that got me wanting to keep going.

But, I knew there was something more to it. What were these people doing with the articles I wrote?

They were using them for their affiliate marketing websites. The lightbulb turned on!

I thought that it was cool they were using these affiliate marketing blogs to promote their websites but I wanted to find out how they did it. This is when I discovered that affiliate marketing was huge and that a lot of people were really making some serious money doing it.

I wanted in on it. I wanted to learn what they did.

Work For Yourself Or Work For Someone Else?d81f07080940f67f8e1998be1890cf441541547058 cropped optimized - Looking For Affiliate Manager Jobs? I May Have Found One For You

I know you’re on this page wondering how to work for yourself. You are probably like me, burned out from working for others and maybe a bit skeptical on how anybody could possibly make a living online. I know I did when I first started. I didn’t believe it could be a possibility but I wanted to try.

I had to try. I didn’t want to work for anyone anymore.

I joined one of the leading platforms that looked ok, they didn’t promise me anything but did say it would take some work. I joined for free and started building my own affiliate marketing website. At first with all the training and videos and Word Press it was all pretty confusing. I can’t say I wasn’t overwhelmed but I asked people in the live chat questions I had and they helped me really get started on my website. That was three years ago and now this website you are checking out has become pretty big if I don’t say so myself. And I did it alone on my own with help from the platform. That platform is Wealthy Affiliate.

I know a lot of people want to work for themselves. I do because I was burned out after 25 years of work and just needed a break from the norm. I was tired but semi retired and just wanted to stay busy which is why I started writing those articles for people a few years ago. Then when I started learning about affiliate marketing I knew this was for me.

So, Dave…what is affiliate marketing?

Glad you asked. Basically affiliate marketing is building a website and promoting products or services on that website with blogs and affiliate links. You can promote virtually anything that you make or find for sale on Amazon, Click Bank, Commission Junction or any company that has a sign up for affilate marketers. You just have to build a website on Wealthy Affiliate, learn the in’s and out’s of the business and keep building your website out.

Eventually, you will get traffic and then some awesome sales.

What can you promote?

Let’s see. You could start a travel blog and sign up with an airline flight or cruise website that offers deals. Then make commissions off anyone who buys from you. Or you can take any of the Amazon products and created banner links and put them on your posts and promote that way. Or you can take a specific niche and cater to buyers of that niche. It could be football helmets, Baseball gloves, Swimsuits.Jewelry, etc. The sky really is the limit with affiliate marketing.

How do you get started?

Simple. Sign up with Wealthy Affiliate HERE.

You won’t be alone. Plus there are close to a million members and the live chat is always full of people willing to help YOU get on the road to success.

And The Scam For 2018 Goes To Wealthy Affiliate!

Biggest Scam Of 2018?847672f44784db314a58fb70d4edfa761541292166 cropped optimized - And The Scam For 2018 Goes To Wealthy Affiliate!

You may have heard of Wealthy Affiliate, the online platform where people try and make money as affiliate marketers. And you may have checked out the reviews for this platform. And what you may have read is many people think that it’s just a brainwashed website that instructs it’s members to write fake reviews on other online programs and calls them out as being frauds. You may have read that the way Wealthy Affiliate works is by getting people to sign up and in a few months they get discouraged and then just quit and the guys who run the thing don’t care because they got the membership fees for a few months. And you may have read that Wealthy Affiliate got sued in 2015. That’s true too. They were.

So, why do people bother to join the company if it’s such a rip-off? Because they get lured in by the idea of easy money with minimal effort that’s why. And when they don’t make money in a month or two they quit. Then they call it a scam.

Most people who join Wealthy Affiliate seem to give up at the six-month time frame. It seems to be just the way it is with the company. They sign up for the Premium membership, figure they will try it out for size and then in a few months, poof they are history. Down the road.

How do I know all this 411 on Wealthy Affiliate? Because I have been a member for 3 years now. And I have seen a ton of people come and go. I have figured it out why they do this too. They have no patience and don’t want to put in the hard work to see it through. And I’m going to try not to dig on the under 35 generation but it seems like many of them want what they want and want it now. They don’t want to get down in the trenches and work hard at succeeding. They just want a quick buck and out of moms house living the good life.

I’m here to tell you, that will never work no matter what you try in life. You can’t cut corners. You’ll end up broke and living like a bum. Or worse you’ll end up in prison. Because hard work is something that comes from within. It’s the drive that gets you up in the morning. The drive that gets you telling yourself that yes, you can and will succeed.

Why Listen To Me?8c00c6dd6801608961bc6a24cf1f0e0c1541292266 cropped 1541292330 optimized - And The Scam For 2018 Goes To Wealthy Affiliate!

I’ve been down the road of hard knocks. I won’t bore you but I will tell you the truth. I’m 55 years old now. I have a son and a wife and this life has given me some tough lessons. Dad comitted suicide when I was 17 and I went and joined the Marine Corps. I did my time and got out and ended up homeless because my family was pretty much non-existent and I had trouble adapting to civilian life. I managed to get jobs though and an apartment and eventually after another three-year stint in the Navy reserves I started to settle down. By then I was working in a freezer all night stocking frozen food in 22 degrees. It sucked but I kept at it. Finally, I got divorced and went back home to San Diego and was pretty much burned out by my early thirties.

In 1998 I started working as an electrical apprentice and kept at it, completed four years and got my journeyman card. I worked commercial electrical work for 10 years.

Then I got hit with another nightmare. I caught menengitis and almost died. The girl in the next room did pass away and was only 24. My point is that through all the b.s. life threw at me I knew that the only way to succeed at anything was to not give up. And joining Wealthy Affiliate three years ago really changed my way of looking at my life and realizing that I could do anything I put my mind to. Why? Because I had been down some tough roads but always managed to bounce back.

My thinking is those who join the platform and quit haven’t had enough hard knocks in life. They are still living in a trance either dreaming of a future that will just show up and 30 years old living at their parent’s house. Or they are just plain lazy, depressed, jaded or all of the above. Of course, those who are disabled are excluded from this list. I have immense compassion for those who struggle with illnesses and disabilities. Because I suffer from one too. The post effects of menengitis.

Why Join Wealthy Affiliate And Is It The Scam Of 2018?

Listen. I don’t b.s. you here. I won’t tell you it’s a walk in the park and anyone can make it. They can’t. It’s like the Marine Corps. I was a scrawny 17-year-old when I went in. I weighed 135 pounds. I was yelled at by the drill instructors because my home was 2 miles from MCRD training in San Diego and they wanted me to quit. They said just jump the fence, you’ll be home in a half hour. I didn’t quit and went on to get an honorable discharge.

I look at Wealthy Affiliate and all those people who call it a scam the same way. They can’t hack it. They are negative and weak. They may even be living in momma’s basement. Who knows. But, in three years I have built a website I am proud of. I worked hard at in and now it’s making me money. Not a ton but it is making money. Anyone can do it but they have to take it seriously and work hard. And keep going when the going gets tough. Otherwise, I don’t suggest even bothering to join.

You came to this page for some reason. Maybe you were checking out Wealthy Affiliate and figured you would look to see if it’s a scam or the real deal. I don’t know. But for those who believe everything anyone says, I say you’re the one who is brainwashed. Check out Wealthy Affiliate for yourself. If you think you can make a decent website then go for it. I did. You can too. Or you can sit and home dreaming about that fairy tale life that doesn’t exist. Your choice.

Are There Any Legitimate Affiliate Marketing Jobs? Don’t Start Before You Read This!

Are There Any Legitimate Affiliate Marketing Jobs?

You may be looking for side jobs or really just any job in todays economy that doesn’t completely take up all of your time. But is there a job like this? Can you really find a job online in today’s market or are all of them scams? I’ll admit three years ago when I started looking for affilite marketing jobs I was thinking there are way too many scams for me to weed through. It was so overwhelming looking at all of the push button guru bottom feeder jobs that I thought, “Have I really sunk this low?” 

I’m not lying either. After having to medically retire from work as an electrician I had to go on disability after a setback. It sucked because I had a steady working career of over 25 years as a military guy and as an electrician. But when the fat lady sings so to speak it was all over for me. Yep, I fell into a funk, a depression and found myself grasping at anything and nothing. I sought some help and they got me somewhat straightened out and then I decided that I didn’t want to sit and rot for the next 20-30 years on disability. Don’t get me wrong I appreciate the safety net but it really sucked having to be sidelined. 

A few years ago I started looking into affiliate marketing. I’m sure you have probably heard of it by now. In fact everyone I know has and many of the people I have met along the way are finding a ton of success as marketers. But, what is it and is it legitimate? Yes, it is legit but it does take work. I’m not talking a couple months,more like a year or two to find any real success. 

Can it be done from home?

Yes it can but you need patience and you need to learn how to write correctly for affiliate marketing purposes. 

Am I making money?

Yes, I do make money monthly on commissions from people who sign up for the platform I learned affiliate marketing on. Message me and I will show you my stats for the day. 

Is it fun?

Of course it is if you put your mind to it and don’t take it too seriously. 

How much does it cost to learn? 

Wealthy Affiliate teaches affiliate marketing online plus they have everything you need to build your website. It costs $49.00 a month. 

Isn’t it a scheme?

No it is not. Why do I say this? Because it is a legitimate training platform and they also provide free hosting and keyword search tools. Plus it’s been active for over 12 years as of this writing. f75591a107108631245da259140e2632 cropped 1540742108 optimized - Are There Any Legitimate Affiliate Marketing Jobs? Don't Start Before You Read This!

Are Affiliate Marketing Jobs Easy To Do?

Here is where I guess easy is a relative term. In the sense that affiliate marketing is easy physically…yes. Mentally, well not so much but it’s not that difficult if you put your mind to it. If you pick a niche that you can keep writing at and enjoy it then you can make some pretty good money. But you have to stick it out long term. If you can do that then you can succeed. 

If you are serious about making either some side money or a full time income online there is one thing I think I should tell you about succeeding. And that is you must stay consistent with your blog writing and marketing techniques. It’s not hard but if you have other pressing needs and stray away from focusing on your website for long term, your site will fall in rankings. And the lower the rank the less traffic you will get. 

It’s easy if you are motivated and want to keep pushing forward building your website. I mean it’s not a hard job. You have noone looking over your shoulders and realistically anyone can do it. It consist of writing and getting comments on your website. And of course promoting whatever it is you want to promote. 

Some people have been very successful by working on websites like something as simple as “Boxing Shoes” This niche while fairly popular is not overly saturated by websites so an independant person like yourself could easily become an authority in the niche and people will trust you over time. And that’s when you can really start making a name for your brand and make some good comissions. I do say pick a niche that you will like writing about month after month. If you do that it won’t feel like work. 

Tired Of The JOB?b2ad9d0453a4490aafdedee3f977bed4 cropped 1540742140 optimized - Are There Any Legitimate Affiliate Marketing Jobs? Don't Start Before You Read This!

If you are sick of not feeling your are getting what you’re worth, or just plain ol’ fed up with going to a J.O.B. you may want to consider working as an independant affiliate marketer. I won’t say it’s all fun and games but it is a way of earning an income without breaking your back. But first you have to learn and if you can read you can do it. Wealthy Affiliate teaches entrepreneurs like you how to earn an income without struggling to make ends meet. And you can do this part time.

Online Affiliate Marketing Solutions. What Is The Best Route?

Are You Taking The Right Path?79aa6f63a3c799a4a746d8ee4323f9e11538667284 cropped 1540225417 optimized - Online Affiliate Marketing Solutions. What Is The Best Route?

If you are looking into affiliate marketing and can’t seem to find the right path to take, believe me you’re not alone. In fact, there are litterally millions of people seeking a part and full time way of earning an income as an affiliate marketer that it can become confusing as to which road to take. And there are plenty of companies out there willing to take your money to show you the ropes. Finding the online affiliate marketing solutions that work can be difficult. 

But is any of that even worth it? 

Here’s what I found out. In my three years as an affiliate marketer I learned that to become successful you have to learn the right way the first time or you will be spinning your wheels and eventually end up giving up. There’s just way too much hype in the industry and not enough substance. Once you pay to learn on many of these platforms, you hear nothing but get a bunch of rehashed marketing tips that you could find anywhere online. 

Is this the right route to take?

No way! And I found out the hard way by writing for people who then used my articles for their affiliate websites. Why didn’t they just write the articles themselves? From one person I asked who I wrote for the simply said they didn’t have the time. I thought, yea but affiliate marketing is really just a lot of writing and promoting through their website. Not so this person said. They were more focused on going out and promoting their products offline and the website was just another vehicle to promote their stuff. 

I knew from the beginning when I started learning affiliate marketing that the key to success had to be by writing content and then getting higher up in the search engines. 

What did I do?

I joined a popular site called Wealthy Affiliate. Before you think it’s just another scam, here me out. I signed up for Wealthy Affiliate and began studying their lessons and watching the videos. Over time it started to make sense. You have to build a website in a niche and then write about whatever product or service you want. But it does take some time. And that’s the key to becoming successful in the arena. 

Do people make money fast in affiliate marketing? 

Some actually do if they choose a less competive niche. I have known people who made money in the first three months but they kept working on their websites and didn’t give up. The ones who quit generally quit within the first six months. 

Why Learn On Wealthy Affiliate?8f1eb85274e8dc856dc80abe7c4f547c1540225456 cropped optimized - Online Affiliate Marketing Solutions. What Is The Best Route?

Because it works, plain and simple. There are ten core lessons on the platform for niche marketers. Study those and implement what you learn and you will be successful. The courses are  easy and really a no brainer. I started in January of 2016 and now my website (this one) makes enough so I don’t have to go out and hustle a regular job. 

Am I getting rich?

No, but the possibilility is there. You just have to keep plugging away. The difference between my site and a niche site is I promote Wealthy Affiliate instead of going the route of selling other stuff. I believe in the platform and it’s worked well for me. But, I had to work at it. I had to write many blogs and to date this site has almost 400 posts on it. It’s taken on a life of it’s own too. 

How much is Wealthy Affiliate?

Wealthy Affiliate is $49.00 per month but that includes everything you need to build your website. That’s the hosting, the site builder, the domain ($13.00 per year) and then you also get the best keyword tool I have found, Jaaxy. You also have access to live chat help, 24/7 technical support and much much more. For the price it can’t be beat. 

Why choose this platform?

Honestly, I chose Wealthy Affiliate because I saw at the time I joined it had been online for 10 years. The reviews were good and looking at it myself I could tell it wasn’t some flim flam scam that just wanted your money. They didn’t say you would be successful either. They said if you work hard you can be successful. And so that’s what I did and now I feel I have found success through the training and constantly writing on my website. 

Is Affiliate Marketing For Everyone?

I would say it’s for anyone and not everyone. If you are motivated, can find time in a day to update your blog then yes, it can be for you. I remember back a few years I was first on the job, ready to get my feet dirty working as an electrician. I was motivated and worked full days. It was also back breaking work. Now, in my fifties I have to slow down a bit. Being retired at a relatively young age has it’s ups and downs. I need to stay busy. 

Anything takes time and effort.

And that’s what I have told myself as I have worked on this website for the past three years. Anything worthwhile is going to take work and a lot of it. 

Stop thinking get rich quick.

This is a must! To get anywhere in life you have to pace yourself, set goals and reach them slowly but surely. That’s the way you’re going to be successful. The same applies to affiliate marketing. You need to pick a goal and keep going little by little, like I did with this website. 

Affiliate marketing may be for you if you tell yourself positive things and keep going when others quit. That’s what will get you up in the morning and getting to writing on your website. And believe me, people are reading what you put out. This site gets read from all over the world much to my amazment. I have people who ask me questions and leave me comments and it really makes me feel good to know I may be helping someone with what I write. 

Bottom line is this. If you are serious about learning and earning as an affiliate marketer, you need to learn and apply. That’s it. Wealthy Affiliate has a very easy to follow step by step learning university that teaches you what you need to know. That’s all there really is to it. Learn from the best and success will follow. 

Leave me a comment or question and I’ll get back to you asap. 

Here’s to your success.
