I have created my profile over an year ago with virtual assistant and writing and proofreading gigs.I never got any job and on top of that i dont think i am a good writer i can be a good assistant but the market is very tough.I am learning programming now and moving to be a wordpress developer.
Could you suggest me some easy skills that i can market while i learn to program?
dropshipping on fiverr
If you don’t have any skills as you indicated in your title, why are you selling on 5r?
I’m going to be blunt, why should I give you my hard earn money to write for me when you are not proficient in it?
You can try HTML. Best wishes
I feel learn to do something first with a difference would make you beat the market in a better way.
If you wish to take up programming and/or WordPress in specific you might want to look at some courses from Udemy
Also, CodeAcademy for the basics (HTML/CSS/PHP etc…).
Nice to know you choose to be a wp dev.
You can learn basic wp before you start to learn about creating Templets.
You can try to learn woo commerce product uploading, this is easy to learn & very related to wp
And also learn about wp site migration. It’s a little hard thing but I believe it will not take much time for you to learn as you are programming student.

I’m happy to see that you recognize that. I agree that you should not have a gig as a writer or proofreader since I can see that you are not able to do those things well.
I don’t know any programing language but WordPress is a future. You are heading in the right direction.
Everybody has skills but sometime they don’t know specially voice actor, singers, artist etc
Thanks alot for the support everybody
You are right gina but when i joined fiverr every body was saying writing is easy you should do that and now i know they were wrong its an art form whose skills i dont have
Realising this before you start is going to save you an awful lot of problems in the future. Good luck with whatever you decide to do!
Good luck with your search for your place in the five or world. For me, the magic of Fiverr has been discovering things that I am uniquely good at, standing out even in a crowd of thousands and thousands of competitors. Now, looking back, it looks obvious what I was supposed to be doing on Fiverr, but I remember struggling just as you are to figure out what I would offer here. When you find it - probably through a combination of experimentation and skills development - you will stand a few inches taller.
