Fiverr is the biggest market place to buy and sell services. Starting from a minimum rate of 5 dollars, you can sell services and people can buy from you. Once you are able to sell a service and receive the order, you will be able to keep 80% of your total earnings and Fiverr (the platform) will keep 20% of your earnings as a transaction fee.
Fiverr is all about providing affordable services. These services are called GIGS and can range from business promotions, graphic design, content writing, essay writing, translations and a lot more. But how to make money on Fiverr without Skills is also an extremely easy and straightforward job that I will be discussing in this post.
If you have a skill and are looking to make money on Fiverr then the process is pretty simple. You log in and sign up with Fiverr (it is absolutely free). You will then need to set up your profile and let people know about yourself and how you can help them. Anyone can be your customer and avail your services. Whenever you receive an order and successfully complete it, you will earn money. After the 14-day, the mandatory period is over and you will be able to instantly withdraw the money. The more order you complete and deliver the more money you will earn.
That’s it! You advertise your skills and services and earn money. But this is not what this post is about. I will be discussing with you the ways and tricks through which you can earn money even if you do not have any skill.
Yes, it is possible and so many people (like me) have been making money on Fiverr for years and that too without any skill.

Can you earn money on Fiverr without any skills?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions by people who are willing to earn some solid amount of money online. The typical method of earning on Fiverr is that you advertise a trade-able skill of yours and earn money. But here is the fun part.
You can earn money on Fiverr even if you don’t have any trade-able service.
Yes, it is the truth and you can earn money on Fiverr even without any skills. You can earn some good money on Fiverr and let me tell you how.
How to make money on Fiverr without any Skills?
Making money on Fiverr with your skills is an easy job. You advertise and promote your skills, sell services, complete tasks and earn money. But if you are reading this then you are not interested in the usual way.
You want to know ways which will make you earn money even if you don’t have any skills. So, here is what you need to do.
You need to learn about Digital Arbitrage.
In layman terms, digital arbitrage is the process of profiting on the difference between the buying and selling price of the digital products and services on different or the same platforms.
You buy or sell a service and outsource it either on the same platform or on a different platform and earn from the difference. Let me explain it to you in detail.
Consider, you are selling a content writing gig on Fiverr for $5. If you don’t know how to write, you can outsource the job on another service providing platform for $1. The remaining $3 will be your profit (after paying Fiverr the fees as well).
In an ideal situation, the work you get will be consistent and even if you get 4 orders per day, you will be able to earn $12 every day. You get orders, you ask someone else to do the job for you and you split the money. You keep the larger chunk and pay a small amount to the person doing the job for you.
The number of orders that you receive depends upon the methods you employ to invite traffic and also on the gigs that you are offering. But no matter how many orders you receive, you will make money for sure.
In order to work on such orders, you need to have a working capital so that you can buy services and outsource the orders. Because if you do not have any balance in your account, how will you pay to the person who will be completing the order for you. Even if you have a total amount of 30 dollars in your account, you can begin making money on Fiverr.
Tip: SEOClerk’s is another platform where you can buy and sell services at a much lower rate. On SEOClerk you can buy a gig at as low as $1. And this is what we will be discussing in this post. Here is how it is done!
If you sell a gig on Fiverr and outsource it on SEOClerk, you can potentially earn a large profit margin. The examples that we have been discussing so far are lower priced gigs but you can also sell and outsource premium services and earn even greater amounts of money.
In a nutshell, what you need to do is to sell services on Fiverr and once you secure an order, you will buy the same service on SEOClerk at a lower rate. Someone will work for you at a lower rate then you will be charging the client on Fiverr. This is where you will be saving money. You earn more and pay less.
Now, since we have established the method we will be using to make money on Fiverr without any skills, the next step is to learn all about selling gigs on Fiverr and getting orders.
You can’t make money on Fiverr with or without any skills unless and until you get orders. So let dive straight into discussing how to get orders on Fiverr.
How to get orders on Fiverr?
Firstly, you need to sign up for both platforms. The registration process is completely free and you can make a profile on both Fiverr and SEOClerk without any cost. You need to set up complete profiles and provide all the information that is required to start selling and buying.
You need to complete the seller profile requisites on Fiverr in order to start selling. Make sure the profile name of both the platforms is different and that you do not operate with the same name for obvious reasons. You do not want people to be able to trace you back and know that you are outsourcing their orders.
It is better to use a generic name or a title specifying your niche to use as your profile name. Once you are done with all of this, you can then move on to the next part.
You need to surf Fiverr and look for gigs that have a high amount of orders. This means that these gigs are in demand and you will also be able to land a order with less effort. You also need to look for gigs that match with the ones available on SEOClerk so that you can resell the orders.
Before you select a niche and sell a gig make sure that:
- The gig has high orders and is in demand.
- The same gigs exist on Fiverr and SEOClerks so that the orders can be completed,
- And the ones on SEOClerk has a lot of positive reviews and s priced lower then Fiverr.
Once, you have everything sorted you can then move on to doing all of this and making money. Let me give you an example and explain everything to you in detail.
When I started earning on Fiverr without any skills, I used to log onto SEOClerk and sort the gigs based on stats like extremely liked gigs, highly loved gigs and the ones with the maximum orders. Among the list that appears, I usually pick the one that excites me or seems interesting to me.
Further, I also look ar the gig price and most importantly, buyer’s reviews to see how their experience has been with this gig and the service provider. Lastly, the gig delivery time also matters. Also, look for recommendations and overall performance.
Let’s assume that I choose the graphic designing gig. I will contact the seller and ask for a discount (if possible) or about any available deal or offer. Remember, the cheaper you buy the service for the more profit you will be able to earn.
I select one gig of this niche from SEOClerk and place an order for myself. I do that to make sure that the delivered service is of good quality, is on time and also meets all the provided requirements. Once I am fully satisfied with the results, I will then list this gig on Fiverr.
How to create a gig on Fiverr?
The process of creating a new gig on Fiverr is super simple and easy. All you need to do is to click on the “create a new gig” option, follow the steps and you are done.
Yes, it is that easy!
Just make sure that the title of the gig is clear and descriptive, the tags and the pricing are reasonable, delivery time, and description and the thumbnail are all optimal and perfect.
Remember, that there are a number of people who are selling gigs on Fiverr and almost all the fields are saturated. If you want to get an order then you will have to make sure that the gigs you create catch the buyer’s eyes.
You can do that by making sure that the thumbnails are creative and different and not just copied from others. The description is short yet clear, impressive yet understandable and convincing at the same time. Remember, the description you add with each of your gigs is the only way to connect with and convince the potential buyers. Make every word count!
Be creative and innovative. Make sure to include effective keywords and impress the buyer.
Delivery time is another point that needs to be handled very carefully. If the gig on SEOClerk is giving a delivery time of 2 days then make sure you enter the delivery time on Fiverr of at least 4-5 days to manage and handle any unforeseen delays and problems.
Once all of this is done and you have created an effective and impressive gig on Fiverr (through the seller section and create a new gig page) you are all set to receive orders.
Tip: When someone searches for a particular gig through keywords, Fiverr shows the best search results. In order to rank higher in the search results, you can copy the tags of the top three gigs. It will help you climb higher in the search results.
If you have a new Fiverr account and you are waiting for your first order, it can take some time. As I mentioned before, Fiverr is a large market place to sell and buy services and people have been at it for years. There are several Fiverr levels and gigs are priced accordingly on different levels.
If you are the beginner level, the rate of your gigs will be less than the premium level gigs but you will be making money nonetheless. And slowly and surely you will also be able to climb up the Fiverr levels. But that is another discussion.
For now, let’s focus on promoting your account and gigs to secure more and more orders.
Where can you promote your Fiverr gigs?
Regardless of your liking or disliking the promotion part of the process, you will have to promote your Fiverr gig in order to get orders. There are a number of ways you can promote your Fiverr gigs. Basically, you tell people about your offer and have more eyes on you. Here is a list of ways which you can employ to promote your Fiverr gigs:
- Join Fiverr Facebook groups. This is a great way to make more and more people aware of your gig. Almost everyone has a Facebook account and you can easily search for Fiverr Promotion groups and other groups that are related to your gig and join them.
You can follow the footsteps of other people in the group. Mix around, talk about your gig and let people know about the service you will be providing. This will get more people to view your gig and Fiverr offer.
Mixing and talking about your Fiverr offers is a great way to self promote yourself. It may take up a lot of your time and might seem a little annoying to you but it really works and is needed if you wish to get orders and make money of Fiverr without any skills.
- Set up a YouTube channel. Another great way to promote your Fiverr offers is to create a YouTube channel. Many people prefer to listen to what your services are all about rather than reading long descriptions.
You can drop a link to your Fiverr offer and drive traffic to your gigs but also earn money through Google Adsense and your YouTube channel if it reaches 4000 watch hours and 1k subscribers. Isn’t it a great way to earn from both ends?
When you open up a YouTube channel, you can create a lot more interesting content to invite and attract buyers. Instead of selling your gig directly, you can make videos on Fiverr tips, tricks, how-to posts, tutorials, and other helpful content and include your Fiverr gig as an example and include the link to your gig in the description box.
Adding value to your content is a great way to drive traffic to your Fiverr gig and getting orders. This method not only allows you to self promote yourself but also proves to be a great asset in the long run. Even if you don’t get any new orders, your YouTube channel will still be getting the money rolling.
- Start Blogging. In order to promote your Fiverr offers and gigs, blogging is a great idea. You can write blog posts and articles related to your niche and gigs and include a call to action at the end with the link to your gig.
You can also ask other bloggers and social media influencers to add a referral link in their posts to drive traffic to your gigs.
Lastly, you can also try the manual traffic exchange option. This way you visit other profiles and gigs and they visit yours in return. If you are too lazy to do so, you can always stick to the above-mentioned option of self-promotion on Fiverr.
Also, always make sure that the strategies you employ are in line with the terms and conditions of Fiverr. You should not be overstepping on the boundaries and limitations set by the Fiverr officials because if you are found guilty of a breach, your account can be deleted and banned from the platform.
Make sure that you play safe and clear. Once you are successful in getting orders, you will then buy the same service on SEOClerk (for less money) from the same seller you previously did the trial run with.
You can always choose another gig as well on SEOClerk but it is better to be safe than sorry. So make sure that the gig you are buying on SEOClerk will deliver the best quality work on time and will meet the quality requirements of the client.
This is the phenomenon of Digital Arbitrage that I mentioned at the start. You outsource the service at a lower rate on the same or different platform and earn from the difference of rates. You can also buy services from Fiverr as well, but then the profit margins will not be as great as they are by working with SEOClerk.
Remember, that anyone can earn money from online platforms but in order to make it a consistent and reliable source of income you need to play smart about it. Work hard but also work smart.
I hope that I was able to answer all your concerns and questions regarding the, How to make money on Fiverr without any skills agenda.
As I have explained to you in detail, yes it is possible and anyone of you can start making money on Fiverr even if you don’t have any skills. The basic idea is to outsource the job at a cheaper rate and earn from the difference in the buying and selling rate.
You can find a reliable person willing to do the job for half the money on many platforms like SEOClerk. It is a reliable platform and you will be able to easily find a gig at lower rates.
Just make sure that you maintain your reliability. The service you buy on SEOClerk should be effective and reliable. You need to be sure that the work you will be delivering to your clients on Fiverr is of top quality and meets all the requirements. Because the last thing you want is to earn a bad review on Fiverr.
