For the newbies, Fiverr is a globalised marketplace which is helping users in showcasing the best they have to offer that too free of cost. But before I mention few of the best Fiverr gig ideas for you to work on in India, let me explain what exactly is a Fiverr gig?
While Fiverr is the world’s largest marketplace for digital services, Fiverr gigs are the service that is offered on the platform.
As a freelancer, you have to attract potential buyers on Fiverr so as to buy your service aka gig and in turn, they pay you for your work.
The biggest advantage that Fiverr offers and what attracts potential buyers is the large variety of gigs that are offered on the platform.
As a freelancer, your job is to stand out from everyone else and offer something so unique that they constantly turn to you for such jobs.
Moving on to these Fiverr gig ideas, let me mention few that will not only make you stand out among the millions but also earn you a good amount of money.
Here are 7 out-of-the-box Fiverr gig ideas that you should definitely try:
1) Gigs on basic designing & writing
While these might seem few of the most saturated online gig to offer, it is also some of the most sought out gigs.
The fact of the matter is online platforms are at its peak, and in this day and age, there is hardly any company that doesn’t have an online platform.
By offering your graphic design or writing services, you offer potential buyers an opportunity to make their logo, presentations, projects, designs etc. that they would need to use for the long run but not enough to hire a full-time graphic designer or writer over.
Similarly, as a website designer, you would be able to create and designs websites for these potential buyers that would help them build an online presence and a platform where their consumers or clients can contact time.
Further, these jobs might seem short term, but the fact that they would need an upgrade or expansion in the future will work to your advantage as they will think of you first and others later.
But why would they approach you and not someone in their own city, you might ask?
Simple, Fiverr gig offers them the potential to hire people in different part of the world and for a client living in the US, asking price of a person working for India would be much cheaper than a person working in the US or Europe. Your asking price might be on the higher end in India but would still be cheaper for a client in the US.
So let your work do all the talking and don’t forget to pitch in even one of the most saturated field and work to an international client.
2) Sell your diet plans and offer diet advice
Have the perfect body and a comprehensive fitness and diet regime to go with it? Then why not use your expertise to help someone actually benefit people who are seeking exactly what you have to offer.
While your audience might be limited in India (we just love our street food and can’t live without them), you have a huge audience on the global front as healthy food and weight loss is a common problem that is seen in almost all the countries.
You can accomplish this by uploading a stunning picture and/or a video on Fiverr where you are explaining your diet and fitness plan. Just by showcasing perfection, you will be able to attract the diet conscious males and females and they would certainly give it a serious look or watch to your video.
Give this a shot and it might further brighten your success prospects on Fiverr where you can also give fitness lessons and diet advice.
