The REAL secret tips to making money

Hello new sellers (and you dilapidated types may join us too) !!!
Welcome to the ultimate Fiverr sales training tutorial. Soon, we’ll be discovering ways to skyrocket our sales into elevations never reached before. First, a word from our sponsor:

" Cakey Rolls, because nutrition is for those people… "

And we’re back!

So… You’ve set up your new fiverr account. You’ve stolen the most beautiful of all the head-shot stock images (nice watermark!). You’ve perfectly copied the description of a reputable seller and you’ve ignored all the silly “clarifying your offer” jargon… But now what? What will separate you from your competition? What steps can you take that will tell others, “Hey, I’m here and stuff…so, like, gimmie things?”

This tutorial is for you.

With my help - you will learn all the secret tips that self described “successful” fiverrians use to prosper. Together, we’ll discover that feeling good at your trade is just as good as being good at your trade… without all that “extra income” to worry about.

These tips have been proven to be tips. Kid tested, mother approved. I’m loving it. Just do it.

  1. Why use a video - when you can not use a video?

How is it your problem that you don’t look like the field dwelling, Hungarian, jeans model from your picture? What are you supposed to do…buy a wig? Since when did making money, take money (who has ever even heard of that)? Not to mention, it’s low class to assume someone’s gender. Just because you’re not from the same country as the woman in your picture…or even a woman…doesn’t mean that you aren’t. Facts people.

  1. After one Week of Selling- Offer tips on Selling:

You’ve worked hard. You’ve built a reputation of “having things for people to buy.” After all, you’ve remained at only one job for the entirety of your freelancing career. So what it’s only been 7 days. You know what it takes to thrive. You purchased your “freelancer starter kit” on amazon weeks ago… complete with gym shorts, small back pillow, custom 2x’s your size tee, comfy socks, ambient playlist and a “Chicks Dig Me a Latte” coffee mug. I’m sorry, is there anything else required to be a successful freelancer? No… there isn’t. Last I checked, seven is still more than three, so grab that third day seller and shout your newly discovered success tips right into their ear hole. I bet they’ve never even heard of facebook. So if you don’t tell them to spam their purchased bot friends, who will?

  1. Only use the Forum if you Plan to “Make” Sales (but never search for similar threads):

Nine out of ten doctors agree that forums benefit from spam (*foot doctors). The difference between marketing and spamming is simple: If you post it- it’s marketing…if they post it- it’s spam (Let the ‘chicken and eggers’ deal with the difference, not your problem). True content seekers appreciate your random gig link in a thread titled, “Analytics of Online Buyer Surpluses.” How else will they know that “For five dollars…” you will staple a company logo on your forehead and shout “Deals so good - they hurt?”

Speaking of cold hard facts, in a recent field study - researchers discovered that no one has ever posted anything that you will ever post (including satirical tips meant to never be taken seriously). This revelation, as spearheaded by a ‘Doc Brown,’ further proves the relevancy of your “Impressions are low. pleaze hlp,” thread. Don’t even bother looking for “related” topics. They aren’t there. Now… some of you will point out the blue box that appears and offers suggestions / warnings of similar threads when creating a new “topic.” That box is devil, sorcery. Think about it… one minute you’re writing, “new seller for give me tips on gigs i’m sad” and the next minute some voodoo box appears, just begging you to “read” before you post. The box - in it’s self- is against a little known portion of TOS dubbed, “Fiverr, occultism and you…”

Besides… the recommended post is “I need help with my gigs,” and your post is “PLEASE give me help with my gigs.” Attempting to throw you off of the yellow brick road to easy street just furthers the narrative that there IS, in fact, secret tips that top sellers keep from you. Hard work is a conspiracy.

  1. Only Ask for Improvements if You Plan Not to Use Them:

Now that you’re a master fiverrian, it’s time to maximize your gigs to their fullest potential. What better way to do this than by engaging other master fiverr sellers… in a fight to the death! Sun Tzu knew that “He will conquer who has learnt the artifice of deviation.” No one knows what that even means, but you totally own his book. It’s time to lay claim to your throne by the sly art of trickery. First…create a non assuming, creatively titled, original thread:

“Please help to improve my gig.”

Next…Kindly ask for forum goers to condense all of their trials and efforts into one -easy to read- sentence. Then… swiftly address each post with a condescending, “I’ve done that and it doesn’t work.” Be sure to drop responsive sprinkles such as, “It still doesn’t change my placement…” or a “this advice doesn’t make sense.”

Now it’s time to reveal yourself. Responders will appreciate that you’ve created this thread to dismiss their efforts and in some cases - they’ll perform the ceremonial ritual of pretending to be upset with your lack of awareness, as they do with all master freelancers of your caliber. They’ll be astonished that you’ve actually created this thread to “teach” them. Don’t let their baffled reactions persuade you… they need your help.

Congratulations. You have now become an “Expert” of fiverr’s secrets to making money. You understand the truth about learning being a one time thing… you know better than to watch videos, read blogs or look into the habits of other people. You understand that being yourself, means not learning from others… and you know that hard work is second only to letting other people do that work -and handing you the results.

We will see you at the top!

Ahh, Moochie Michael, I think you “I will write a satire article for you that will make the people who get satire laugh.” :clown_face::nerd_face: :nerd_face: :crazy_face: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: :sunglasses:


Well… I’m Actually “Moochie Tommy…” But you know what? Belly buttons aren’t really buttons. So who am I to argue about what my name should be? I don’t want to live in a world where “belly holes” is the accepted terminology. So, perhaps my name has been wrong all along.


I thought I remembered you posting your name was Michael, my bad. Tommy fits you better. I still think you should write, you do it so well. Now I am tempted to post a link to the above article for all the new sellers who ask to improve their gig, but it could be seen as mean. :smiling_imp:

I have an answer for this one, because I have done it before too (I’m sure everyone has at one point).

Someone should sell a Gig to people who want to improve their Gigs! :smiley:


It’s funny to me the number of people on here asking for help who then argue with or completely reject whatever you just told them.


This post is extremely helpful on Opposite Day. If you follow every detail - not doing what it says you should and doing what it says you shouldn’t, there’s actually information in there. I think.
Honestly, I didn’t read it. Who has time for long forum posts, ya know?


I’m disappointed in you. You missed out “Sell Your Soul To The Devil”.
It’s one of the most efficient ways to start getting sales on Fiverr.


I would never pontificate in matters of debatable, non science.

My findings are vetted conclusions, filtered through a rigorous testing process and I won’t tolerate debate.

Obviously I’m a serious man. I mean not to be corrected and I won’t stand to be edited.

Edit: I mean… mods are awesome and I love them.

Edit edit: that wasn’t a real edit. That was a follow up.

Follow up edit: That never happened. Watch this hypnosis device. Everything is fine.


Every day, I love you just a little bit more.


Thanks for updating this info! last thing I knew it was and an average of 5 out of 10, so it´s good they are finally getting into an agreement.

Medical consensus has never been incorrect. This is why I perform pink eye treatments with coffee, lather in arsenic routinely and used a steady regimen of bird droppings to cure my son’s broken leg. Not only did it heal, he now walks with a slower dragging, swagger to indicate how cool he is after living through the incident.




I like this one better!


This is all the “creative writing” payment I need.

Edit: Sorry, I misspelled “give me money.”


Thank you for giving me the morning laugh. I wasn’t really motivated when I arrived at my office ( and to be honest I’m still not) but this helped a lot for sure!! :rofl:

Hahaha so true! I see this all the time! :sweat_smile::sweat_smile:

Thank you for your funny post, it’s the best post I’ve read on this forum so far :raised_hands: :rofl:

I forget that my secret to success was the 23 some years of freelancing before I started on Fiverr. You can’t just get a Fiverr name tag and expect for it to work. It is also better to learn in front of real customers. Kind of makes your offers a little more real. A little more practical.


I just have to believe you have some kind of automated generator for those, haha…I meann, the effort on each one of those posts is remarkable.

Ps: I went to your profile and was actually surprise you don’t offer writing gigs. I feel you could write for standup comedians
