High school student question

Hello everyone. I am a high scool student, I’m new on Fiverr but I like it. So i have a gig about Data Entry. I’d like to know if it would be profitable.

Any help or advice would be appreciated. :slightly_smiling_face::slightly_smiling_face:


Data Entry seems to be one of the things that just about everyone with no other skill they have decided to identify or develop does. Better than SEO or fake web traffic I guess. As such there are trillions of people offering exactly the same with most only differentiating themselves with ever-lower prices.

Surely there is something better you can do? Can you not,

  • draw
  • belch the Icelandic National Anthem
  • offer to serve people’s prison sentence (may not actually be legal :thinking:)

as really anything unique has to be smarter than doing exactly the same thing as everyone else who is failing badly?

One thing I would raise is that if you get a customer job at the same time you are doing exams or dating Buffy The Vampire Slayer, will you be able the manage both at the same time?



Also, please see:



Data entry is gonna be a tough one to get rich on.

However, I like that you are young and have some ambition.

That is going to help guide you here on Fiverr.

Good luck.
