I’ve read a number of posts recently that are all along the lines of “I’ve joined Fiverr because I want money but what should I sell?”
Dudes & dudesses & non-binary duds, you are doing this the wrong way around. And to be honest, this is one approach that indicates you might be one of those bad amateur sellers that buyers come on the forum to complain about.
This is what you do instead.
- Look critically at yourself
- identify what you’re good at, either professionally, or as a hobby or interest
- identify what of those you think there is a market for
- identify which of those you think you would actually like to do
- identify which of those you think can be broken down into small chunks to offer as gigs
- see what’s left on your shortlist now
- look at Fiverr and maybe other freelance sites and see what is already being offered in those areas
- you may decide to shortlist further to weed out the categories saturated with sellers already
- you may give some thought to how you can turn your shortlist into something a little bit unique
- you may decide that none of your current skills are suitable and you need to learn something new
- you must give some thought as to what will make buyers buy from you instead of other sellers
- create a gig
