What does the word "Gig" means?

Hello there,

Hope, you all are doing well. I am here today to know a query and that is what does the word “Gig” means? I have searched the meaning of this word but I haven’t got a clear concept about it. Can anyone here please tell me about the meaning of this word, it’s origin or why Fiverr has selected this one to describe the services?

Kind Regards

The word ˝gig˝ itself has many meanings. But specially on Fiverr, this is the meaning that I could find.

I found the same @fitrigwrites4u but I was thinking the word “Gig” has a unique meaning rather “Each service offered.” If someone has known the exact meaning, hoping to get their comment here.

Thanks for your reply.

Probably this one is the closest meaning to services on Fiverr.

The term means “a job”, and is usually used in the entertainment industry (most commonly used in music & movie industry to refer to live performances), and the original meaning comes from “engagement”.

Don’t know about everywhere else, but here, if we’re going to a concert (not the classical kind!), it’s known as a gig as well. :slight_smile:
