How did I get to this point?

I started out by Freelancing on Fiverr

It all started with my Cheeky Fiverr Gig.

When Lynne Huysamen first told me she had set up gigs on Fiverr offering to publish posts on her site for $5, it took me quite a while to get my head around the concept.

Huh? People will pay me to publish their posts on my blogs?

I don't have to pay them for their hard work? Really? But I didn't overthink it.

I took Lynne's advice and started out with $5 Gigs on Fiverr.

Once I had 10 Gigs sold, I was able to up my fees to $10 per post.

Once demand and Domain Authority increased, I increased my fees to $15 to $25 per post and started offering this as a service in my Online Store on

Benefits of Being a Fiverr Seller

  • Adding Freelance Gigs on Fiverr exposes you to a market of people who are actively seeking the services you offer
  • Payment is Guaranteed as Buyers Pay Upfront for their Order (although you only receive payment 2 weeks after you deliver the order).
  • Fiverr pays into Paypal or Payoneer
  • If your Buyers are happy they usually leave you 5 STAR REVIEWS
  • Some Buyers give you repeat business
  • Some Buyers become friends who will do business with you for years
  • Some Buyers refer you to their friends and ask for referrals from you (so you get to pay it forward and help your friends get sales)
  • Some Buyers will even TIP you
  • Once you have a few sales under your belt on Fiverr, you may find (like I did) that clients and Link Building Agencies start contacting you directly to offer Guest Posts

Drawbacks of Selling on Fiverr

  • You have to start low. All sellers start with $5 Gigs.
  • Fiverr takes a 20% handling fee for each order
  • Fiverr even deducts 20% from your Tips (which I think is a bit cheeky)
  • Payment takes what seems like ages (14 days)
  • There's a small payment processing fee as well

By the way, if you're selling this kind of service on Fiverr ("I'll Publish Your Guest Post on my Blog")

  • Sometimes Fiverr Buyers are Link Building Agencies like I described in the previous lesson.
  • Some Fiverr Buyers are Clients coming to you directly to publish a guest post about their own business.

So How Did I get to this Point?

So to get to the point of charging $15 to $30 per Contributed Post, I had to:

  1. Build up a number of my own posts and Guest Posts on my blogs and in so doing...
  2. Build my blog's Domain Authority.


I built Domain Authority by following the Online Entrepreneur Training right here at Wealthy Affiliate
