Are you looking to make some extra money? If so, you may want to consider selling your services on Fiverr. This platform allows you to offer a wide range of services, and there is something for everyone.
The key to being successful on Fiverr is offering value for your buyer. When you create a gig, make sure you clearly state what the deliverable will be and set realistic expectations. Once you deliver a high-quality product, you’ll start to build up positive reviews and attract more buyers.
But not all gigs are created equal. I’ve compiled a list of 22 Fiverr gig ideas that sell & make money. So if you want to make some extra cash, check out this list!
1. Graphic Design
Graphic design is pretty much always going to be relevant. And you don’t need a degree to be good at graphic design, despite what some people will tell you.
It’s true that designers with years of experience and maybe some classroom time under their belt will be objectively better at design, but you can start small and work your way up the ladder in terms of your skillset. Gotta start somewhere!
You can also offer all sorts of graphic design gigs on Fiverr. Here are some solid ideas for you to explore.
- YouTube thumbnail design
- Podcast cover image design
- Etsy shop cover photo design
- Ebook cover design
- Social media post design
- Product label or packaging design
2. Web Development
A web developer takes the vision of a website and brings it to life through code. There are so many ways to learn to code online for free or relatively cheap! (Check out FreeCodeCamp or The Odin Project for this.)
You can absolutely break into web development if you have an interest in it and you commit to learning the ropes. And web development is a technical skillset that can command higher amount of pay.
As a web developer, you might develop sites on WordPress, Shopify, Squarespace, Duda, Webflow, Joomla, or another platform. It’s a good idea to get started by familiarizing yourself with one of those platforms and becoming an expert in it before branching out to another platform.
Depending on the scale and functionality of the site you’re building, you can expect to charge anywhere between $100-$500 as a beginner developer, but that is on the very low end of the price range. A more experienced developer can ask for rates in the thousands for each site they created, even on Fiverr, because developing a good website takes significant time, effort, skill, and troubleshooting.
On Fiverr, there’s no shortage of people looking for translation services, just like on any other freelancing platform. If you are fluent in more than one language, adding a translation gig to your Fiverr profile will likely secure another revenue stream for yourself.
As more people come online, globally speaking, there’s a greater need to translate documents, videos, captions, transcripts, and other content into different languages to help ensure clear and precise communication. Businesses, content creators, and other individuals are all willing to pay for translation services.
4. Virtual Assistance
A virtual assistant is an online administrative assistant who helps with customer service, data entry, appointment setting, scheduling, and email management.
The services that a virtual assistant can provide are vast and varied. It depends on the skillset of the individual virtual assistant as to what type of tasks they’re able to complete.
Some people hire virtual assistants to complete very specific, one-off tasks. In contrast, others prefer to establish an ongoing relationship with their virtual assistant and have them complete tasks regularly, even if it’s just for a few hours each week.
Another thing I should add is that some virtual assistants elect to specialize in a particular area. Technical virtual assistants often command higher rates than your standard administrative VA. Tech VAs have usually added skills like automation assistance, some web design knowledge, a bit of coding, maybe some video editing, and other valuable online skills to their repertoire. This makes them more valuable to potential clients since they can cross more tasks off their lists.
If you’re organized, detail-oriented, and good at customer service or other administrative tasks, becoming a virtual assistant could be a great way to make money on Fiverr!
5. Video Editing
As a video editor, you would be responsible for cutting raw footage, adding special effects, and generally putting the finishing touches on videos before they are published online.
This could include creating YouTube thumbnails, intros, and outros; editing vlogs; splicing together footage for social media ads or promotional videos; and more.
Lots of opportunities to do this on Fiverr! It’s also a bit less saturated than gigs like writing, social media management, and virtual assistance. Probably because it requires getting familiar with video editing software, which can take quite some time, in order to get started. But it’s totally do-able and there are plenty of low-cost video editing software out there for you to practice on! Worst-case scenario, you can grab a free trial of a paid software and hustle for that 2 weeks or 1 month trial to gain as much skill as possible before you start charging for Fiverr gigs.
6. Audio Production
If you have experience with audio production, whether it’s through a previous job, hobby, or side hustle, you can put those skills to use on Fiverr.
There are lots of businesses and individuals who need audio files for their websites, podcasts, YouTube videos, and various other online content. And they’re willing to pay good money for high-quality audio files!
You could create intros and outros for podcasts, produce voicemails and other audio content, edit raw audio files, and more.
7. Programming and Coding
If you know how to code or have experience with programming, there are several ways that you can make money on Fiverr.
For example, you could offer to debug and fix code for people’s websites; create custom code snippets, plugins, and extensions; help people troubleshoot issues they’re having with their website or blog, or even develop entire websites from scratch!
If you have the skills, there’s definitely a demand for them on this platform. And since coding can be quite complex and time-consuming, businesses are often willing to pay top dollar for high-quality coding services.
8. Social Media Management or Planning Services
As a social media manager, you would be responsible for creating and posting content on behalf of a business or individual. This could include writing and scheduling posts, researching relevant hashtags and topics, analyzing analytics to see what’s working and what isn’t, engaging with followers, and more.
It’s no secret that social media is huge and will be here to stay for (probably) decades. And with the constant algorithm changes and increasing competition for organic reach, businesses are more willing than ever to outsource their social media management. That’s where you come in!
If you’re good at social media and have a bit of extra time on your hands, becoming a social media manager could be a great way to make money on Fiverr.
9. Marketing Services
Marketing is a broad term that can encompass everything from content creation and social media management to email marketing, lead generation, and even sales funnels.
If you have experience with any type of marketing, there’s a good chance that you can find a gig on Fiverr that’s a perfect fit for your skillset.
10. Consulting Services
If you have experience in a particular industry or niche, you could offer your services as a consultant on Fiverr.
This could involve giving advice, answering questions, providing feedback, helping with decision-making, and more.
Consulting gigs are great because they’re usually one-off projects that don’t require much (if any) ongoing work. And since businesses are always looking for ways to improve, there’s definitely a demand for consulting services on this platform.
11. Blog Writing
If you’re a good writer and have experience with blogging, you could offer your services as a blog writer on Fiverr. This is how I make the majority of my money online. Buisnesses, brands, and bloggers all need content on their website in order to help their customers and website users.
Blog also help websites get found in Google and other search engines. So, blogging is a big part of a well-rounded marketing strategy for most businesses with an online presence of any sort.
As a new blog writer on Fiverr, I’d recommend pricing your services around $10 to start with. A blog post is generally 750-1200 words, but there are tons of writing niches where it’s common to post blogs of 2500-5000 words. It depends on what kind of content you’re writing and how nuanced or technical it is. Beginning by writing shorter blogs of around 750-1000 words would be a great place to get started.
After you’ve gotten some 5 star reviews at $10 per gig, go ahead and raise your rates a bit even if you don’t plan on charging $100+ per post like some writers do. $20, $30, even $50 per post is an exceptional value for many website owners who need blog content. Remember that blog posts have the potential to earn money for your clients, so don’t feel weird about charging a good rate for your work!
12. Press Release Writing
This is because businesses recognize the value of having a well-written press release. After all, a press release is one of the best ways to generate publicity for your business. It can help you to get your message out there and raise awareness of your brand.
And because press releases are often picked up by the media, they can also help to build your reputation and credibility.
Businesses are willing to pay good money for a well-written press release. So if you’re looking for a Fiverr gig idea that is both valuable and in demand, consider offering your services as a press release writer.
13. Ebook Writing
Businesses are always looking for content, and one of the main ways to increase perceived authority (as a person, business, expert, or content creator) is to publish an ebook.
But did you know that many people aren’t writing the ebooks they’re publishing? Yep, many of them outsource the writing (and editing and cover design) to freelancers.
People are willing to pay for ebook writing because it’s a skill that not everyone has. You’ll be in high demand if you can write an informative and engaging ebook.
And if you can take that ebook and format it correctly for publication, you can raise your rates since you’ll be saving your clients time with that extra step.
14. Facebook Group Moderation
Facebook groups are still super popular, and with that popularity comes the need for moderation.
Group owners don’t always have the time to monitor their groups 24/7, so they’re willing to outsource that task to someone else.
You can offer your services as a Fiverr seller as a Facebook group moderator. This would involve tasks like removing spam posts, banning members who break the group rules, and generally keeping the group clean and organized.
It’s a great gig idea if you’re good at multitasking and have experience moderating online forums or groups.
15. Garden Planning
If you have a green thumb and experience with gardening, you could offer your services as a garden planner on Fiverr.
This could involve anything from creating a custom garden plan to providing advice and consulting services.
People are always looking for ways to improve their gardens and might not have a mentor or someone nearby them who can come to their garden for a consultation. That’s where you come in!
Since this is a more specialized, personalized, and customized Fiverr gig idea, I recommend charging a bit more for it (starting at around $100 to get some initial reviews and consider raising it after a while) since you will need to give each client personal attention.
Transcription is the process of turning audio or video recordings into written form.
It’s a popular Fiverr gig idea because it doesn’t require special skills or training, and anyone with a computer can do it. All you need is a good set of headphones, a text editor like Google Docs, and a quiet workplace.
You can expect to earn around $1 per minute of audio you transcribe, so it’s not a bad gig idea if you’re looking for something that is relatively easy and doesn’t pay too badly. People always need help with transcription for creating video captions, providing podcast show notes, transcribing college or uni lectures, and lots more.
17. Animation & Whiteboard Videos
If you have experience with video editing and animation, you could create whiteboard or explainer videos for businesses.
Explainer videos are becoming increasingly popular because they’re a great way to engage audiences and explain complex concepts in a simple and easy-to-understand way.
Whiteboard videos are a specific type of explainer video that uses a hand-drawn effect to create the visuals. They’re often used to tell stories or explain concepts in a fun and engaging way.
As a Fiverr seller, you could offer your services as an animator and video editor to create these types of videos for businesses. You can expect to earn around $100-$300 per minute of video you create, depending on the complexity and style of the video.
If you’re looking for a more creative gig idea, animation is a great option. And if you’re good at it, you can charge a premium for your services.
18. User Testing
User testing is the process of testing how easy or difficult it is for users to use a particular website or app.
As a user tester, you would be responsible for carrying out specific tasks on a given website or app and providing feedback on your experience. Usually, this involves recording your screen (not your face or anything, just your computer screen) and turning on your microphone so you can walk through the testing process of a new website or app. As issues come up, voice them out loud and move your mouse around the screen as you usually would. Ask questions that come up for you and give honest feedback on how easy and intuitive the user experience is.
This kind of feedback is highly valuable to website owners and app developers because they can spot issues with their site or app before it launches to the general public, potentially saving them a lot of future headaches and even helping their site or app earn more money.
This gig idea is becoming increasingly popular because it’s relatively easy to do and doesn’t require any special skills or training. All you need is a computer and an internet connection.
User testing is a great Fiverr gig idea if you’re looking for something that is relatively easy and doesn’t pay too badly. You can expect to earn around $10-$15 per 20-30 minutes of testing you do, depending on the complexity of the website and the tasks you’re given.
19. Beta Reading
Beta reading is the process of reading and giving feedback on a work of fiction, usually before it’s published. As a beta reader, you would be responsible for reading the work of fiction and providing feedback on things like plot, characters, pacing, grammar, etc.
This gig idea is popular among writers because it’s a great way to get feedback on their work before it’s published. This way, authors can gather feedback and make necessary changes to their work before moving along in the publishing process. Beta reading also helps authors gauge what their audience’s reaction to their new book is likely to be.
Beta reading is also relatively easy to do and doesn’t require special skills or training. All you need is a love for reading and an eye for detail! You can be upfront about this in your gig description. People who hire beta readers hire them specifically because they are just regular readers and not formally trained editors or proofreaders.
20. Editing & Proofreading
Editing and proofreading are two separate but related services. Editing is making changes to a piece of writing to improve clarity, flow, and overall quality. Proofreading is the process of reading a piece of writing and correcting grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors.
As an editor or proofreader on Fiverr, you would be responsible for providing these services to clients. This gig idea is popular because many people have the ability to attain editing or proofreading skills online, and they’re both in high demand. Even the best editors hire other editors to look at their own work because having a second eye check out their writing will usually uncover mistakes or clarity issues they didn’t pick up the first time around.
If you’re interested in offering this gig, we recommend taking a few editing and proofreading courses online so you can brush up on your skills and learn industry-standard terminology. This will make you more credible to potential clients and help you get more gigs.
21. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Services
If you’re familiar with SEO, you know that it’s an ever-changing and complex field. And because of that, businesses always need quality SEO services to help them rank higher in search engine results and get more traffic to their websites.
As an SEO expert, you could offer various services on Fiverr, such as keyword research, link building, on-page optimization, and more.
22. Business Plans
If you have experience with business planning or know how to create a killer business plan, this could be a great gig idea for you!
Business plans are used for all sorts of things, from securing funding to launching a new business or product. This is a one-and-done gig with limited opportunity for repeat customers unless your customers are simply outsourcing their own work to you, so keep that in mind.
Still, preparing business plans is a valuable Fiverr gig idea because many people will get excited about writing their own business plans only to quickly become overwhelmed. You can step in to help them and allow them to keep moving forward with their new business.
So there you have it! 22 Fiverr gig ideas that are all in high demand. These gigs are a great place to start if you’re looking for a way to make some extra cash.
Remember that the best way to succeed with any of these gigs is to show examples of your work, offer quality services, and have excellent communication with your clients. Do this, and you’ll be on your way to making more money through Fiverr!
