Fiverr Gigs That Allow You To Make A Full Time Living Online
Fiverr is one of the big success stories of the last decade. If you haven’t heard about them, you must be working in an industry that requires as little soft skills as possible.
It has long been agreed that the internet present a major opportunity for both digital and physical businesses. The beauty of it is that digital products and services can be fully delivered over the internet.
While the eBays, Amazons, Alibabas were busy moving the old-fashioned hypermarket online, the founders of Fiverr identified this gap in the market for digital services.
Fiverr is now a big player in the online marketplace. The power it wields is not just that it has huge traffic. The real leverage it has is that it’s traffic are made up of buyers.
It is so much easier to sell a product or service when the crowd is made up of ready buyers. You don’t need to create a desire or make prospects want your service. They are already in a buying mood!
A few years ago, pragmatic industry players would have predicted that Fiverr will plateau. But it has only grown larger more quickly.
This exponential growth of Fiverr has made it possible for many people all over the world to make a full time income just from offering their services on the website. Many of them had never even thought of the possibility of replacing their jobs with their online services offered on Fiverr.
It has happened for so many people. It is REAL. And here are the high demand gigs (in no particular order) that can allow you to do the same even if you don’t have any god-given talent.
1) Ebook covers
You wouldn’t believe how big the demand is for a nice looking book cover until you see the numbers here. Never in my wildest dream did I even thought this service can sustain a full time income.
But just look at this. I almost choked myself with my coffee when I saw these numbers.
The figures in brackets beside the 5 yellow dots are the amount of buyers who left a feedback after the seller has delivered the gig.
If you are a Fiverr seller, you will know that about 50%-60% of buyers don’t leave reviews after purchasing. Maybe they want to keep a low profile, maybe they are not completely happy with the delivery, maybe they simply forgot.
This mean that the numbers above which are counted when buyers leave ratings, do not serve as a genuine representation of the number of sales made. The real numbers could very possibly be double.
What might blow your mind is that you can offer this gig as well by selling template designs with a little customization.
2) Video editing
Video editing is a high valued service. So you can imagine the gleam in the eyes of buyers when they find that they can get their videos professionally edited from just $5.
The big money is made on the upsells and extras.
Yes even though Fiverr market’s itself as a place to buy $5 services. Sellers can sell add-ons (extras) to jack up the price. If you do a good job, buyers won’t hesitate to pay for video editing services.
3) Writing services
If there is 1 thing that webmasters and web designers need, it is content.
You see, designers and programmers are great at what they do… which is to build websites with codes and create designs that appeal to visitors. But many of them are not very good with writing content.
Don’t get the wrong idea. Many have the ability to write well. But after spending hours on coding and designing, they are just too spent to crank their minds to write articles.
This your opportunity. As you can see below.
And endless amount of content is published online on a daily basis… making writing a service with a huge demand.
The common types of content writing in demand:
- Blog posts
- Company profiles
- Product reviews and descriptions
- and much more…
You don’t even have to write with the slickness of veteran journalists. Most buyers are already more than satisfied if your writing has a native English flow with no grammatical errors.
People understand that world class writing comes with world class charges and fees. So they will not have very high expectations placed on budget writing services.
4) Logo design
If you start a business and go to a designer to design a logo, you are going to be quoted between $100 to $500. Even a freelancer might attempt to bite your hand off.
On Fiverr, you can get them for… $5 of course!
Just see the breathtaking demand below for logo design services
The fact that design houses charging in the area of $500 per logo have not closed down, there must be a huge market for this service… especially when designers are already killing it on Fiverr with the exact same service.
5) Business card design
Another novelty that new startup businesses will have to buy are business cards. They simple cannot conduct business professionally without an aesthetically pleasing name card.
Which could explain the huge number of purchases for this service…
Just like ebook covers, business card designs can be easily created with templates and easy-to-use software.
Because business cards is such an evergreen product, software design firms have long created software for designers to quickly churn out beautiful cards with little effort.
While regular businesses find no reason to buy these design software, you can exploit the market gap by utilizing them to create designs to sell on digital marketplaces. Focus on selling in volume.
You can double up your sales by offering a logo design service to compliment this one.
6) Video Presentations
If you don’t yet realize that video is making a huge impact in the world of online marketing, where have you been in the last 3 years.
Countless researches and case studies have shown that video content and motion pictures are more engaging to visitors. And viewers are more likely to take action, or convert, when video is used.
These videos don’t need to be world-class animation or in the same quality as Hollywood flicks. They can very well be just a person presenting whatever content on video.
This has led to an explosive demand for video presenters in the last few years. And this can be an opportunity for you.
Don’t believe me? Just take a look at these insane numbers.
Many buyers will willingly pay you a lot of money just to do a simple video speech as they are not comfortable on camera.
If you have a low budget, you can simply start with offering a service and use your smart phone to do the recordings. As your orders grow, you will quickly learn that investing in a home video studio is well worth the money.
You will be able to charge more, and your customers will still feel they received good value for money.
More services with ridiculously high demand:
- Link building
- Social signals
- Video creation and animation
- Video testimonials
- Search engine optimization
- Web design
- Website troubleshooting
