How much should you charge? How much should you expect to make?
The greatest margin I ever achieved was selling logo design for $100 and hiring someone on
Fiverr for $5 to do it for me. That's $95 profit for a few minutes of work finding the client
and another few minutes of work for doing some responsesuite review
This is the ideal but it is not always possible. Some clients require more complex or custom
work that is outside most of the Fiverr seller's basic $5 gigs. This is okay though, as most
Fiverr sellers welcome custom work or have gig extras to cover more complex jobs. Still,
how much should you expect to make?
A good rule of thumb is a margin of 30% minimum and 50% for most jobs. So, if you charge
a client $100 for a job, the most you want to pay a subcontractor is $70 to get it done.
Ideally, you pay a subcontractor $50 or less. With Fiverr, it's possible and very easy to find
someone to get the work done for you inexpensively while still maintaining good quality of
work. This depends on the service but generally it shouldn't be hard to find a gig that can get
it done cheaper than what you charged your client.
How much should you charge your client? This of responsesuite review depends on the service and the
complexity of what the client wants to get done.
A good way to determine how much you should charge is to find a seller on Fiverr, send
them a message with the details that your client provided you, and ask them how much it
would cost. If the Fiverr seller comes back and tells you it will cost $50 to get responsesuite review done, add a
30% to 50% margin on top of it and send that price ($100 for a 50% margin) to your client.
Always send the highest quote first. This way, if your client comes back and tells you it's too
expensive, you can negotiate down to your 30% margin cost. I will go over email
correspondence with clients and closing clients later in this ebook, but that is the general
So to break it down, for every $10 you charge a client to get a job done, you only want to
spend, at most, $7 to get it done, ideally $5 or less.
I know these seem like low margins, but most of the time, you can get the work done really
inexpensively on Fiverr. These margins I just described are worst case scenario, which is
still very good since you are not actually doing the work yourself but subcontracting it. Most
of the time, you will spend $5-$20 to get a job done on Fiverr, and charge a client $100 or
