Hello, I need help because i dont think i have any skills


#1

Hy everyone
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 :thinking::money_with_wings:

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?


#5

You can try HTML. Best wishes


#6

I feel learn to do something first with a difference would make you beat the market in a better way.


#8

If you wish to take up programming and/or WordPress in specific you might want to look at some courses from Udemy :slight_smile:

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 :wink:
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.


#12

I don’t know any programing language but WordPress is a future. You are heading in the right direction.
And
Everybody has skills but sometime they don’t know specially voice actor, singers, artist etc

#14

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


#15

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! :slightly_smiling_face:

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.

Being bad at something doesn’t mean you can’t be successful at it. Look at Nicholas Cage.

Nicholas Cage is one of my favorite actors.
