    That's hard to say definitively. I've seen people claim that they're making $50 an hour, but I think it depends on what you offer and if there are many orders for your service. The short answer is that the real hourly rate can't be determined, because it varies considerably depending upon who orders your gig. If you check out the top rated gigs in your category, you might get a sense of how much money other musicians are making-but even this doesn't tell the full story! Remember, every musician's experience is different.

    The short answer is no. It's not to say you can't make money on Fiverr, but the majority of musicians we talk to who use it for income tell us they make less than minimum wage - and that's if they're lucky. With Fiverr, there are two ways to find success as a musician: one is as a top seller in the audio section (expertise required) and another is through custom music. The latter means having loads of musical backgrounds and uploads available for your clients' perusal. This way, potential buyers can purchase an individual track to use as background music for their videos or presentations without purchasing the whole song from iTunes and getting all those pesky rights attached!

    No. No. No. The answer is unequivocally NO! Do you want to make money as a musician? You can't go wrong with youtube and other streaming sites like spotify, aweo, Jango Radio and Slacker Radio which all offer greater reward to their musicians than Fiverr does. I would recommend using the little fiverr has to offer as a way for jump starting your career or gaining traction on social media if that's what you're looking for but do not expect any return on your video either monetarily or in terms of views.

    It can vary based on location and popularity. However, the average is less than $25 per gig. If you're in a country such as Hungary ($27 / hour) or Greece ($18 / hour), your hourly experience might be different, but if not the difference in pay will be small when divided by 350 pieces of paper (gigs). We invite people to come here for our rates! It's possible that rate charges will increase over time depending on how many musicians become available and how much they need to compete with each other.

    Answer:
    - View your talent as an added value to clients' projects, not a cash cow.
    - Provide great customer service by consistently answering questions & requests in a timely manner.
    - Offer free samples of your work on social media, websites, videos etc.
    - Put the level of quality they are looking for bluntly in your description with no hassles or fees associated with it beforehand.
    - At some point you will have to set boundaries with buyers because there is no way for them to know what they are getting without contacting you first about it...make sure they understand this so people feel accountable but don't charge them associated fees until after they have used the product/service and pay for it separately".

    Many musicians are turning to new services like Fiverr.com, one large website with many different categories of freelance work you can offer. Here's my two cents about it so you don't get taken advantage of if you decide to try hiring out your music on sites like this one.. The biggest thing is to charge what your time is worth for the job! As a musician that's easy - just charge hourly ($15-30) for prerecorded songs or ($50) an hour for live gigs. You have full control over pricing but need to be competitive with others in the marketplace.
