The popularity of Fiverr has exploded in the last one year. From a small micro job website, it has become an outsourcing authority getting more traffic than established outsourcing websites like Elance or oDesk. Fiverr is a great place for anyone to get work done rather inexpensively but on the other side, it can be a good way of making some extra money from it. Many people are scared of trying Fiverr because they don’t think they have a product or skill that is marketable. If you are one of those people who does not know what to sell on Fiverr, here is a list of ideas to help you get over that little bump:
Postcards or other related geo-specific products
You don’t have to live in an exotic place in order for you to sell post cards or other related items that are specific to your region or country. From major cities to small towns, every place is unique, with its own little history and rituals. Some places have more history that others, that is a given, but even if you live in a small town, I am sure there is something that your town prides itself with and offers souvenirs related to it that would make a great little Fiverr product.
Most of the buyers on Fiverr are North American so if you live outside of the the US and Canada, you can offer postcards, souvenirs, pictures of monuments and other related touristic products from your country. If you live in North America, you can offer the same but from your state or town.
Videos are some of the most popular products on Fiverr so you can definitely try to capture some of the action. If you like to dress up in particular way, imitate a foreign accent, speak like a celebrity or have any other skill that you think it’s funny, you can make a service out of it. Even if you think your idea is a little crazy, I encourage you to give it a try. Some of the most obnoxious videos are the most popular one Fiverr so you will be surprised by how many orders your particular type of funny can get you.
Something that comes easy to you
If you are a fast typist, offer transcription services, if you have a good, deep, voice, offer voiceover services, if you love to do taxes, offer it a service. Different people have different likes and dislikes and you will be surprised how many people absolutely hate doing something that you like, enjoy or comes easy for you. Such a service makes an ideal Fiverr gig. As long as you offer something that you are good at, can do fast and you enjoy, making money on Fiverr with your gigs should be a fun process for you.
Reviews & Testimonials
Everyone is a consumer and as such we all have opinions about the products and service we buy. Your opinion can make an awesome gig on Fiverr. If you have an expertise in a specific industry, you can offer reviews for that. If you don’t, you can offer to make testimonials or critique the usability of something.
There have been countless times when I am working on the design of a website and things makes so much sense to me that it comes as a complete and utter surprise when my wife or a friend of mine points out something that does not really fit. Because I’ve been starring at the same site for days, I cannot see it but when they point it out, it becomes so obvious that I wonder how have I missed it. Now, before I am done with any project, I look for a person to take a look and just be my second set of eyes and I would gladly pay $5 for such a service.
