Mobile apps are hot, and no one knows this better perhaps than our newest Super Seller.
Meet Ttzachii (a.k.a. Tzachi), a very popular seller here on Fiverr who builds custom mobile apps for many eager and highly satisfied customers. He started his Fiverr journey as a buyer about a year ago and quickly graduated to selling his mobile programming services. He did however start with low expectations, posting his Gig and not expecting much attention, unaware how eager buyers would be for his services.
Now Fiverr is his main source of income. More importantly, he now averages $30 to $50 per order.
Ttzachii shares how he’s now achieving financial independence by selling on Fiverr. He reveals his secrets here, and a little inside wisdom as well:
I offer a full service: This means buyers can come and get a complete project made by me. When I first started on Fiverr, each $5 Gig was a different service that complemented the other, so that together, they made up a full project. Then I was promoting these other services both before and after the order was made. This helped me to earn more money and build my profile with feedback.
Once I earned my levels, I simply used all the extras I could: It didn’t take long to update the prices since I was ready and waiting for it. The idea is to provide the entire service in pieces and promote it as much as possible when talking to buyers. Make sure they know that there’s no need to pay higher fees somewhere else to complete their project. It’s better for them since they only need to explain what they need once and it’s taken care of.
The best part is: This strategy works no matter what services you offer.
The key is to think big and then make it work by breaking down each service into something you can do for $5. You’ll see that orders can really start to add up when you do this.
The Gig I offer is very complex. My buyer needs to choose content and functions for their app. To make it easier for my buyer (and myself), I built an online form for my Fiverr orders. This is a fast way for me and the buyer to understand what they not only require, but expect.
When the form is filled the information is sent to me. The buyer can also save it and review it to see if there’s anything that they want to change. This setup helps to save a lot of time.
First, you need to have a great Gig with excellent communication. Your buyer should be so overwhelmed with what they get from your Gig that they see the value in adding Extras. When you deliver the Extras, they should be even more amazed. This way they might come back and even spread the word about you to others.
I see sellers that simply don’t offer them and this is a massive mistake. If you aren’t sure about what service to provide as extras, start thinking about your Gigs as a “one stop shop”. There are always services that someone buying your Gig will need. Add those to provide the complete package.
If your initial Gig already offers a full package, then maybe you are giving away too much for too little. Think of a way to break down this service into steps.
Let buyers know about your extras when you are chatting with them, both before they place the order and after. Your buyer can always add extras after the order was placed and even after it’s delivered. I know it sounds pushy, but trust me, it works 😉
Remember: Package, Promote and Profit!
