Upsell your Tips

By now, every seller should have a “tip” gig, allowing buyers to pay extra for the work you have completed. Most sellers undersell themselves on Fiverr, with their work production usually being a fraction of the normal market value. Sellers are able to do this by cutting their processing costs and simplifying the whole ordering process, but wouldn’t it be nice to receive amounts to actually cover the true value of your gig, or even reward yourself and have a break?

When I look at tip gigs, I always see 2 major errors:

1. The seller only has a $5 tip gig and isn’t utilizing the extras

2. The seller is utilizing the extras, but literally just offering the chance to tip more

Fiverr is a community with a host of buyers and sellers, who are all REAL people. This being said, you need to engage your buyers and connect with them on a personal level.

A great way to do this, via tips, is to actually present your tips as a “gift”. Buyers are much more inclined to give you a gift, rather than just money. The holiday season is a prime example of this, we don’t just give each other cash, we put thought and effort into gifts to show the recipient how much we appreciate them.

Take a look at my tip extras as an example —>

As you can see, I have shown the buyer exactly where their tip goes. This is not only great for the buyer, but for you, as the seller too. We all work hard on Fiverr and it’s great to take a break and be able to afford to do so.

So the next time you get a tip, don’t just add it to your income to pay bills or sit around in your bank – TREAT YOURSELF, have a day out, order take out food, celebrate your success and enjoy Fiverr to it’s full potential.

Need proof this works and you’re worth it?
