Curriculum

Section 1: Introduction to this Course
05:59

Welcome to my Fiverr Success Course - come and discover what you can learn from my Fiverr journey! It has only just begun!

02:36

Fiverr is a market place where you can find buyers for your digital products. This audience is likely to differ from that you find on Udemy or whereever else you are promoting your online courses and/or digital information products.

While you are not repurposing your content, being able to offer it to an audience who are primed to purchase is great and this is the main reason I believe that every one selling online should include their digital products on Fiverr.

This course shows you how to do it and also reminds you to offer your other skills and services while you are here!

A PDF of this slide deck is included in the Additional Resources of this lecture for your convenience.

01:22

In order to get Level 1 Status on Fiverr you need to have had an active account for 30 days. My strong recommendation is that now you are taking this course and are planning to become a Fiverr Seller, you open your account immediately so that the clock starts ticking...

A PDF of this slide deck is included in the Additional Resources of this lecture for your convenience.

01:37

It would be great if you would introduce yourself in the discussions. Where are you from? what are your objectives for the course? What challenges are you facing? Join in with the community here and lets all work together for our mutual success.

Do welcome new members and answer questions if you can!

02:06

This lecture demonstrates that I made $212 in my first two weeks on Fiverr and achieved Level One Seller status in that time too!

02:42

After two months on Fiverr and Fifty Gigs, I am a Level Two Seller and over $600 richer! I love Fiverr! :)

00:57

I just want to let you know that I am here to help and answer your questions - just start a discussion or message me on Udemy...

Section 2: Getting Started on Fiverr
03:22

It is very simple to get started on Fiverr. You need simply sign up for a new account. All you need to know is that Fiverr is about doing work for customers (Gigs), the price for which starts at $5, and you can offer a wide range of skills and services to a ready to buy market.

A PDF of this slide deck is included in the Additional Resources of this lecture for your convenience.

Your profile is your shop window on Fiverr so it is worth getting this optimised to make sure that you have the best chance of attracting buyers! This lecture walks you through this and helps you step by step.

A PDF of this slide deck is included in the Additional Resources of this lecture for your convenience.

There are four Fiverr seller levels

You need to give yourself enough time to complete your Gig. You can also create a Gig extra for fast delivery so don't be in too much of a rush to deliver. Remember too that one of the common mistakes made by new Sellers on Fiverr is not giving themselves enough time to deliver a Gig.

A PDF of this slide deck is included in the Additional Resources of this lecture for your convenience.

01:51

00:38

This is my promo video for my Gig on Fiverr promoting this Udemy course. I had to delete this Gig after it was Denied as Fiverr do not allow you to promote Fiverr on Fiverr!

01:30

Lets take a time out - I would love to get your feedback on the course - start a discussion or message me.

This would also be a great time for you to help out other students by telling them what you think about the course - why not leave a rating and review now? You can always go back and edit it at any time later if you wish.
