fiverr art | Sell Paintings on Fiverr | Buy Arts & Crafts Gift Services on Fiverr
This post is highly controversial — in fact, almost none of the reader of TAA like it, and I can certainly understand why! As an artist, you’ve worked hard for your training, and you have a passion to create. Certainly you hope that alone is valued at more than $5! I hope so too. I included this post because I thought it would generate good discussion, and I was right. Unfortunately, I failed to communicate that I think selling your art for $5 is not a great idea, and I don’t think that any artist should do it for very long. See this post on What is the Value of Your Art?
Today’s guest post is from, an artist, actress, and performer. While I don’t think Fiverr is a great place to sell your masterpieces, I think beginning artists who haven’t sold much yet could potentially use Fiverr to grow an audience base. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comments.
By now, many people have heard about, used, or sold services on Fiverr
Fiverr is essentially a place where people can buy or sell services, products (called “gigs”) online for $5. As you complete more “gigs” as a seller, and receive good feedback from buyers on your account overtime, there are ways Fiverr allows you to eventually sell your items for more than $5 as well.
I became successful as a seller on Fiverr pretty quickly. I’m an artist and a trained actor, and I happen to be very comfortable recording videos on camera, which I discovered was quite a “hot” skill to have on Fiverr. So, I created a gig where I record video testimonials and tutorials for people, businesses and products. And thus far I’ve received tons of orders.
As I began searching other sellers gigs, I found many other artists that were selling gigs and art on Fiverr. Of course at first I found a bunch of graphic designers, photographers, video editors…etc and others who could create digital forms of art.
However, I discovered quite a few gigs by artists who weren’t solely selling digital art.
Here’s what happened: I had taken a picture on my iPhone that I wanted to print out and give as a gift to my friends, but I wanted to do something unique with the photo.
To me (even though I would NEVER claim to be a photographer), the photograph was actually quite beautiful…it almost looked like a painting. And that’s when it dawned on me.
I logged in to Fiverr and searched for any gigs with the keyword “paint”. Lo and behold, I found a few artists who could actually paint the photo, and then send me a digital scan or copy of the painting. I ordered one of the gigs immediately and sent my photograph.
