Furthering Your Reach
The strategy I’ve laid out for you in this guide will get you well on your way to making a decent side income, with or without all of the shady tactics that a lot of other marketers use. I'll leave that decision for you to make. But how can you expand on this success? What could you do to maximize your profits and minimize your time investment?
Here are a few ideas I would recommend to you:
**Utilize Fiverr Offers For Your Own Outsourced Jobs
What it you were to flip the script and use Fiverr to have jobs you’ve acquired as an outsourcer completed for only $10 a pop? The talent pool on Fiverr is incredibly large.
I’ll give you an example of a tactic I’ve been using with some success: Logo design was, and always will be, a hot commodity online. There are new bloggers and marketers starting their online businesses every day, and they need a logo for their site. So, how can you take advantage of this need?
Start by creating accounts as an outsourcer on other micro-job sites – particularly ones that sell their services for a higher price than what Fiverr offers and start creating accounts on various internet forums where you'll be able to participate in contests or contact customers directly through PM's. Next, start browsing through potential candidates on Fiverr that could do the logo design work for you. The next part is important (so I’m going to bold it)
*Don’t settle for the first logo designer on Fiverr you come across!
Take your time here and browse through a moderate selection of sellers. Make sure they have samples available for you to view. Be picky with this step, because quality is going to take you far when it comes to logos. (and you’ll know what quality is when you see it).
Believe it or not, there are some very talented logo designers currently on Fiverr. My guess is that most of them are new to logo design but have a natural talent. Utilize these sellers’ talents before they move on to other outsourcing sites that pay more.
When you find a few logo designers you like (I’d say between five and ten), post your logo design service listing on the other micro-job sites you joined earlier.
Or, if you can, go ahead and order a couple of logo designs from a few sellers on Fiverr. That way, you can use those logos for your own portfolio on the other sites. It’ll give you instant credibility. And ALWAYS make sure you have full rights to the logos that the Fiverr sellers make for you. Once you receive an order from one of the micro-job sites, choose a logo designer on Fiverr and give him the specifications for the logo that your customer gave you. Once the Fiverr seller is done with the logo, submit it to your client. Bonus points for you if you find a Fiverr seller that offers revisions. That way, you can offer revisions on your listing as well. This helps the overall appeal of your listing, thus resulting in more orders for you!
Another option is to enter logo design contests on DigitalPoint.com. However, I only do this if the prize money is worth it – mainly because you’re never guaranteed to have your logo chosen as the winner – thus, potentially causing you to be out $10.
But if you have enough cash reserves and feel comfortable with the risk, then I say go for it because the payout can be substantial. Here’s a quick example to illustrate a scenario where you can almost guarantee you’ll be chosen:
Let’s say you enter a contest on DigitalPoint for $100. The buyer wants a new logo for his business. You copy the details for the logo then head to Fiverr to find a seller to make it for you.
That seller happens to be pretty talented. You turn the logo in. The buyer on DigitalPoint contacts you and asks if you can change a couple of things on the logo. He lists them out for you. If he does this, based on my experience, you should feel very confident that your logo will be chosen – it tells me that he likes the overall design of the logo. He’s interested – very interested. But he needs a couple of tweaks done here and there.
Take the list he gives you and contact the same seller if possible (if not, then find a seller who will make the changes for you). Wait for the changes to be completed and then post the revised logo onto DigitalPoint. If you did everything the buyer asked, there’s a very good opportunity that your logo will be picked.
And that right there is a $80 - $90 dollar profit for you with very little time investment!?
One More Option – 99Designs.com
There is one more possibility – that albeit is a tad more farfetched, but still a viable option to make a very nice profit. 99Designs is a popular logo design site that allows designers to submit their designs in a “contest” format for potential buyers to purchase. If your logo gets chosen, you could make upwards of $198 to $800 dollars per logo. That being said, your logo design HAS to be top-notch, high quality. If it isn’t, you shouldn’t even waste your time entering.
Here’s what I sometimes do on 99Designs:
There is a marketplace on the site that allows buyers to purchase pre-made logos for $198 - $598. The designer of a logo that is purchased earns a 30% commission right off the bat, with the opportunity to increase that commission to 50% as you sell more logos. Once again, this site is for top-quality work only. So, if you come across a Fiverr seller that has produced really solid logo designs, consider, if nothing else, putting the logo up on 99Designs’ marketplace, and see what happens.
** Well, that was that.. **
