Starting From Scratch Series

Watch Me Build A Brand New Business From Scratch With No Product, List Or Traffic ALL From Scratch On Fiverr

Do you have an amazing product or service but struggle getting targeted traffic, making sales, writing sales copy or even getting a website set up?

Do you wish someone would actually give a REAL answer to the question “What would you do if you had to start over from scratch?”

I decided that instead of giving you a bunch of theory I’d actually do it, document it and share my results with you real time…

And that’s exactly what I did and I’m taking you with me step by step on this journey…

A couple of months ago I challenged myself to start a new business from scratch. Without using my list, without using my connections, without using my existing products and only spending an hour per day.

Earnings Update:

Since I started this experiment I am at $18,706.01 total profit (that’s my take after Fiverr’s 20% commission)

Here’s how I ended the month of January…

Total sales revenue: $5,272.00
Total tips revenue: $59.00
Total commission paid to Fiverr: $1064.20
Total profit: $4,256.80

Total Orders: 395

Here’s the daily breakdown:

I used to think Fiverr was a joke of a place to be listed and sell products. That is until I realized that it is THE PERFECT platform to build a business.

Over the past 3 months my “salespage” has seen
Over 1.1 million impressions
Over 21 thousand clicks
Over 32 thousand views
Over 1 thousand orders

LTS027-02

1. Don’t have to worry about any of the technical stuff (just fill in the blank and you have a product/service listed)
2. Built in traffic – buyer traffic
3. What?! They take 20%!!!! Don’t need to pay for advertising, don’t need to pay for hosting, don’t need to pay for product delivery.. It’s a steal!
4. Not building a list – 75% of my customers are now repeat buyers. I can still message them through the messaging system and they can favorite me and find me later.
5. No need to learn or worry about copywriting my overall conversion rate is 5.8%!!!!

6. Fiverr actually wants you to succeed!

How do I pick a niche?

I go over this in depth in the previous episode of this series.
- Don’t over think it
- Go through the other gigs and find something you can do and try it! When your getting started you have 7 gigs to play with.

Lessons Learned:

1) Once you have a gig that is doing well it is time to start creating OTHER gigs that can act as feeders to your main gig.
2) Customer support. I can’t stress enough how important this is.
a. Use canned responses: When someone orders and when you deliver your order
b. Be polite at all costs
3) Avoid any problem customers up front. It’s better to send them to someone else than end up with a big problem on your hands down the road.
4) Do not offer discounts to get more sales

Can you really earn a full time income working part time on Fiverr and starting from scratch? Yes!

The most popular question I get asked? What if you were starting from scratch and didn’t have a huge budget.. what would you do?

Most “gurus” will only give you lip service and tell you things like they’d find a passionate niche and make a product. Don’t you want something that you don’t already know? Wouldn’t it be nice to see them walk the walk?

Well that exactly what I did and I’m taking you with me step by step on this journey…

How To Build A Solid Income Stream Fast Using Fiverr

An online strategy for earning significant income when you’re starting from scratch

Do you wish there was a way to build solid income with minimal traffic?

Do you have your whole online system set-up but still struggle with finding targeted buying traffic?

Do you know for a fact that you could succeed with your online dream if you could just get your foot in the door?

Do you wish you could easily earn $1000+ a month so you could fund your new passive online business?

What is Fiverr?

Fiverr (www.fiverr.com) is an online marketplace where you can offer virtually any product or service for sale.

You can do anything from handing out fliers to producing graphic designs to editing audio/video.

Basic sales start at $5 but can go up into the hundreds or even more.

The Myth and The Reality of Fiverr

At first, Lance ignored Fiverr because it looked like a lot of work to earn $5-that was not the internet dream he signed up for!

The reality is that very few sales are actually at $5-the average is closer to $20 to $50 per order.

Lance’s Fiverr Experiment

Once he realized the breadth of what you could offer (anything!) and the pricing options, he decided to have a little experiment to see what would happen.

He created a gig to see what would happen-he didn’t leverage his name or his other businesses.

He simply went and found some popular gigs and copied their description to see if he would get any traffic.

In just 4 short months, he went from a handful of sales in his first month to $1650 earnings in ONE month-it really works!

The Strategy

In his first month, he did nothing proactive and he averaged about one sale a week.

But, he saw his peers in the same space getting 20 or 30 sales lined up at a time-he wanted to crack the code.

In his 2nd month, he installed the Fiverr app on his smartphone and left it at “online” all the time.

That resulted in his sales going up considerably and he earned about $500 from making that small change.

In his 3rd month, he started answering messages from potential buyers immediately.

Combined with delivering all of his orders on time, those 2 adjustments grew his earnings to $900 in that month.

He just finished his 4th month yesterday with earnings of $1650 in that ONE month!

In addition to his previous changes, he started asking his buyers to leave positive feedback and, in turn, he responded to them personally and thanked them for their continued business.

On average, he spends about an hour per day fulfilling Fiverr gig orders. His average order is $10 and they take just a few minutes each. He can literally earn a few hundred in just one day.

The ‘Gig’ Economy

You can start on Fiverr with literally “nothing” and grow your business into significant earning potential each and every month.

Most of Lance’s Fiverr business is now coming from repeat clients. Why?

It’s about good customer service! Buyers appreciate how you treat them.

Provide a good-quality product or service.

Deliver on time.

Thank them for their business.

Tip: The more positive feedback you have and the more you engage with your buyers, the higher you will rank in the Fiverr system which results in your gig being shown to more potential customers.

Today’s Take-Aways for Fiverr Success
