Lucy Guo

What is Lucy Guo?

I’m a mom, wife, entrepreneur, copywriter, and a blogger. I started my blog in 2015 to learn about marketing, entrepreneurship, and earning money online.

I’m also the co-founder of 5 Min Daily, a blog and podcast focused on digital marketing. We do weekly interviews with digital marketers, bloggers, and entrepreneurs who share how they make money online.

How do you make money on Fiverr?

I love the idea of freelancing. It’s an easy way to make money, but I struggled to find ways to build a passive income.

One of my friends told me about Fiverr. It’s a marketplace for gigging and freelance work. I’ve used Fiverr to earn money for years. It’s a great way to make money.

It works like this:

I create a gig on Fiverr and set the price. I get paid when someone purchases the gig.

I write content for the gig. I can sell products, design a logo, or write an eBook.

I send a PDF to the client. I’ll sometimes get paid a little bit, but the client usually doesn’t pay me.

I can choose between four payment options, and each one differs from sending an email with the project details. I’ll attach the PDF.

I’ll wait for the client to accept or decline the project.

I’ll get paid once the client has completed the project.

What’s the best part of Fiverr?

The best part is that it’s easy. You can get started in 30 minutes or less.

What’s the worst part?

You can’t expect much. Most clients don’t pay; if they do, they pay less than the price you’re selling the gig for.

What would you do if you could no longer make money on Fiverr?

How did Lucy Guo make her millions of dollars?

5 Min Daily was born out of my frustration as a freelance writer. I felt stuck, and I knew I wouldn’t be able to progress in the freelance world if I continued to write about topics I didn’t care about.

I wanted to find ways to earn money that were fun and engaging, and I wanted to learn more about making money online.

So, I started experimenting.

I made a few hundred dollars a month by selling my eBooks, and then I tried out my first Fiverr gigs.

And then I got bitten by the Fiverr bug.

I started earning over $2000 a month, and I was hooked.

My first gigs included writing for other writers, creating infographics, and writing product descriptions. And it only took five minutes a day.

I quickly built up a following of hundreds of thousands of loyal fans, and my monthly income skyrocketed.

The best part was I never worked more th than five minutes daily.

Why do so many pedals follow Lucy Guo?

I felt I was onto something when I wrote my first blog post for Fiverr. It was just a quick note on why I was quitting Fiverr.

Then, I received a few emails asking if I could write about other topics on my blog. I said yes, and I’ve been writing about anything and everything since then.

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned is that you should only write about what you’re passionate about. If you’re not excited about something, nobody else will be either.

After a year, I’m making a decent living off Fiverr. It’s not a lot, but it’s enough to cover my monthly expenses and save a bit for the future.

What is the goal of her company?

Fiverr is a marketplace where freelancers can sell gigs and freelance work. When I first started on Fiverr, I was a graphic designer. My main source of income was graphic design.

 Hired meIn the beginning, I wrotInitiallyat I didn’t care. Would go to bed thinking about the next day’s tasks, and the next day, I would sit down and write about something else. Only after another freelancer hired me to write a product review did I realize Fiverr’s potential.

At the time, I didn’t realize that my content was just filler. It wasn’t valuable. It was just something to fill the space.

A few months later, I started researching and noticed that most fencers on Fiverr were selling the same types of services.

This was a real eye-opener for me. I realized that I could sell anything. Anything I wanted.

My first gig was a review of a book called, The Beginner’s Guide to Freelancing. The book teaches people how to start a freelance business and become a self-employed freelancer.

I was hired by someone who had never done a gig before. He asked me to write a review of the book. I spent about 10 hours reading the book, and writing a review.
