I am finally bringing you another updated fiverr compilation, with 10 new gigs pretty much anyone can do and more than 10 free tools to help make things a lot easier. And if you’re interested in freelancing on Fiverr, be sure to read the complete article for all of the gig ideas you can consider doing, since as Fiverr seller you can list up to 7 gigs at the same time to start with.
Fievrr First gig
So, getting right to the first fiverr gig i want to show you today, plus, several free tools you can use to do it, we have domain research, which is coming up with website URLs for people, which is listed under the digital marketing category on Fiverr.
And if we just take a look at some of these gigs right here, all you need to do is provide some domain name ideas that’re also available because sometimes domain names, when they overlap, you can’t create the exact same one, right? So what a person does here, or a seller does here, is they find ones that are still available, and also work for a given business.
And if we look more closely at some of the gigs here, like this one with the guy on the far left, as well as this one on the far right, we can see that first of all this person is charging $25 for 5-6 SEO-friendly domain suggestions, meaning the URLs not only should be available, but they also contain relatively memorable words, which are actually quite easy to come up with as I’ll show you very soon.
And similarly, this guy right here is also charging $25 for a bundle of 5 domain names, that fit a project or a business or whatever they need, and all you really need to do for these types fo gigs is again have your clients, um, tell you what type of project or business idea, or whatever type of domain they need in whatever niche, and then you can just use the tools I’m about to show you to generate ideas for them.
And the first of these is actually going to be a domain checker right over on my website, which I assure you is accurate, because I actually have access to this tool by being an affiliate of Bluehost, which is also the web hosting service I use, which comes loaded with WordPress for building websites. And this tool is actually hosted on my tutorial for building websites, and I’ll link up the page below for your convenience, but anyway, the way you would use this is by simply typing in any domain name you want, by the way you need to scroll down to the tool here, oops, the tool right here, and then after you type in any domain name, you’ll be able to check whether or not it is currently available. By the way, if you’re using Google Chrome, and have AdBlock installed, you’ll have to actually turn it off for this tool to be able to work.
For example, if I just search up a domain name such as my own, influencerunchained.com, and click on “check availability,” this should indicate that it’s not available, right, as you can see it says influencerunchained.com is taken, please try again, because that is my domain name (URL). And as for how you can actually get good ideas for domain names, if you want, you can first go over to google trends to find out what might be trending the most lately, for example, The Last of Us which is a video game has just released, and as you can see on the graph, it’s really popular lately, and perhaps another more helpful free tool to generate some, to actually generate some names is Shopify’s very own Business Name Generator.
And to use it, you can simply scroll down here to this blank space and enter whatever niche, product idea, brand name, whatever, um, to generate some names related to it. So for example, I can type in something like “taco,” let’s say your client wants to open up a website for a taco store or taco truck, I can just hit “Generate Names” here. And once some of these ideas have been generated, and as you can see there are actually a lot here, and I think they’re actually quite decent, um, but it’s no guarantee that all of these have not already been taken as a domain name, right? So what you want to do is for example, there’s MIracle Taco, you can just copy up this name, and then go over to my website here, and just punch it into domain name checker to see whether it’s available right? So I can do “miracletaco” and hit “Check Availability” and let’s see, this one is actually available so this could actually work as one of the ideas to give to your client. And that was the first Fiverr gig I wanted to show you, which was “Domain Name Suggestions.”
Fievrr gig 2
And so moving onto the second gig, out of 10, we have “Mockups” which is essentially product image such as of t-shirts and boxes that have a specific design or logo displayed on them, generally provided by your client.
For example this seller here creates images and videos of models wearing any t-shirt design provided to them, and they charge let’s see 10 dollars for 10 pictures and 5 videos, which may sound like quite a bit of work, but is actually not, using a website made for this called PlaceIt.
All you need to do is go over to the “Mockups” tab, on the top left here, and you can actually first select “Free Mockups” to see what is available, so let me just do that really quick and then once it loads up, you can actually go to the left menu here as you can see there’s a list of different categories, and first all you want to make sure on the drop down selection here to select “Free Mockups”, and then down here you can then select the type of mockup you want.
So for example, we have some for books, some for coffee mugs, sweatshirts, dog collars, I don’t know if you’ll need that, hoodies, hats, and so on and so forth, so let’s say, let’s see, let’s try the T-shirt Mockup right here, so let me just click on it. Alright, and as you can see right here, we have a bunch of free t-shirt mockup templates here that you can literally just upload a design onto and even change the color of the t-shirt to then download the image and give to your client, right? And if I just scroll through here, as you can see there are a lot of different templates and for example I’m just going to open up this one here to demonstrate it really quick.
So, right here, I need to wait for it to load. Alright, and as you can see, this is actually quite customizable, because over on the left here you can even add text, you can upload your own designs or logos, and on the right you can also even add from their graphics pool, and change the shirt color as well. So for instance, I can change my shirt color to like navy, or dark blue, let’s make it darker actually, and then I’m going to select one of my images that I’ve already created for some of my own T-shirt merch.
By the way, merch store link down below. And here, once I have it uploaded, I can actually adjust it as well, make it larger or smaller, move it around, and then hit “crop,” and as you can see here, it’ll show up right on the shirt, once it finishes loading, and wait for it, wait for it, there is it, voila! And once you’re satisfied with your mockup, you can then scroll up to the top to download it for free by clicking on the link right here, provided you’re actually using one of their free templates.
So as you can see, Ineed to hit download again, and if you haven’t logged in already, you gotta log in as well, by the way you can create an account completely for free, and besides just having images as templates, like these, PlaceIt also provides lots of free video templates as well.
By the way, several of these mockups I’ve actually used for my own merch store and I can actually show you over on my Instagram page, by the way, follow me on Instagram, because I actually share stuff that I don’t do on YouTube, but anyway, here on the right here, there’s a carousel post as you can see, and this mockup was actually made completely on PlaceIt for free, save for the t-shirt design itself, which I got made for me on Fiverr, but if I just scroll through this, there’s even a video here, so I can actually play this mockup video for you to see, check this out, this is pretty cool right, it looks super natural and professional, this is also made on PlaceIt obviously, and if I just scroll through here are a couple more of my different designs using different templates.
Although I’ve only used free templates here, if you actually need more templates for your Fiverr gig, let’s say if you want to opt for a higher-tier package, with say 20-30 mockups, and charge more, you can also consider mixing in some of the paid mockups, or actually just subscribe to PlaceIt, for a low monthly fee, to expand your repitoire that much more, and also just use a small portion of what’d you earn from Fiverr anyway to cover the cost. And that was “Mockup Design” or gig #2.
Fievrr gig 3
Moving on to gig #3, it’s technically not one gig, but rather a collection of design gigs, many of which share or use similar tools so I’ve actually decided to group them together and also point out some of the newer options that have come out Fiverr. And the first of these, as you can see, under “Graphics and Design“, and then “Packaging and Labels”, and it’s also labeled as “new,” we have “Album Cover Design.” And this can actually be done over on PlaceIt as well. For example, if I head to the “Designs” link here, and then click on “Free designs,” then filter by “Album Cover Maker,” here we have a bunch of free templates you can also edit and use as any of your album designs, so for example if I just open up this one here called “Kenya East,” kind of a funny name, again, here you can customize the text and change the font and colors, and then on the right, you can also select different icons you may want to add to your album cover as well as change the background color, and then you can also choose from one of their royalty free images to use as the background image or you can just get a picture or photograph from your client to upload onto this template.
Notice how there currently a watermark on this image, but rest assured, when you actually download it, the watermark will indeed be removed. And that was “Album Cover Design”, which is kind of a new thing on Fiverr, and it looks like people have been prettty good amounts for them as well.
But, moving onto the next type of design gig, still on #3 though, because again, I’ve decided to group them together, we actually have all sorts of so-called “Print Designs,” as they’re called on Fiverr, with gigs ranging from Flyer Design to Brochure Design, to Menu Design, and even Yard Signs. And for making these, my top recommendation is going to be Canva.com, and I’ve actually been using Canva Pro myself, for various things, and you can actually try it for free for not one but two months, and I’ll also leave my affiliate link below for just the free version of Canva, for you to sign up which’ll actually also come with a special bonus, where each time you create a design, we’ll both get awarded one Canva Credit we can use toward paid designs, which is indeed a win-win situation.
How you would normally do these designs is your client will usually provide you with say a list of menu items or a guest list, or whatever they need, then all you need to do is add in those lists into the respective templates, reformat them a little bit to fill out the page, and possibly change up some of the images as well, which is very easy to do with Canva Pro because it’s got tons of images ready for you to use. And with Pro you’ll get access to all of the different templates as well, not just the free ones. And even if you want to stay a free user on Canva, that’s perfectly fine, and if you want to also get even more options to design with, Crello.com is a competitor to Canva, and then Adobe Spark is another website, and again, PlaceIt, they all come with additional free templates and assets you can use alongside those on Canva. And for yet another design gig that.
I want to point out, one that’s always going to be high in demand is t-shirt design, which along with the aforementioned platforms you can also utilize a website called Creative Fabrica, recommended by Teespring themselves, to grab some of their free merch and and t-shirt designs and daily gifts that rotate in and out and they also come with commercial licenses.
Fievrr gig 4
Moving forward onto Gig #4, we have another one that’s been newly added onto Fiverr, and it is “Article to Video” which is converting blog articles into slideshow videos that have clips that match the text as well as a voiceover if needed. And there are a couple of ways I wanna show you that you can use to create these types of videos. First you can simply use a browser-based software called Vidnami to literally copy and paste in articles or paragraphs your clients provide, then have it literally auto-generate a slideshow video for you, with a voiceover, and with commercial rights.
Now Vidnami is not free, but it’s definitely tremendously helpful if you want to create these types of videos, not only for Fiverr freelancing, but you can also use it to make videos for your own YouTube channel, which you can then make money from. And for a demonstration and tutorial of Vidnami, and to see how easy to use and powerful it is, I’ll link up my other video for that in the description box below. And I’ll also include my referral link because I’m partnered with them that’ll get you an exclusive 25% off deal for life. And in addition to that, if you use my link, you’ll also receive these free bonus guides that’ll help you create better videos and monetize them in multiple ways such as through more freelancing opportunities and on YouTube. But if for whatever reason you don’t want to use Vidnami, you can also make slideshow videos using a basic video editor such as one that might’ve been preloaded with your computer, like iMovie for Macs, and Windows Movie Maker, then download the relevant royalty-free video clips from pexels.com, add in the text if needed using your editor, then either provide your own voiceovers, or pay someone to do it for you or just have your friend do it for you, or you can also use a free voiceover generator such as fromspeechtotext.com, although the voice that comes out likely isn’t going to sound as natural.
Fievrr gig 5
And with that, leading into our 5th gig, we have a category that is somewhat related, which is “Explainer Videos,” including slideshows which you can also use Vidnami for, and there are also animted explainer videos such as whiteboard videos, which you can generally charge a lot more for. And to create these whiteboard animation videos, there are a few softwares you can consider online, but one of the most popular ones, which I’ve personally used before as well for YouTube, is called Videoscribe. And if you’re interested, you can first sign up for Videoscribe’s free trial to test it out and learn, then if somebody purchases your gig, you can then use what you’d earn to cover for the cost of Videoscribe.
And those were gig 4 through 5 which entail creating various types of videos.
Fievrr gig 6
And moving onto gig #6, we have “Survey and Form Creation” and actually performing surveys. First, you can actually just design a form very easily and for free using Google Forms, which also comes with built-in templates such as this one here, on which you can just add any type of question or field you want using this toolbar on the right. And if you want, you can actually command even higher prices by not only creating forms for your clients but also administering their surveys as well. And for this, if you don’t normally have people you can send your surveys to, you can also take to microtasking sites like Microworker as well as Rapidworker, to get people to fill them out and just pay them a few cents each.
Fievrr gig 7
Onto gig #7, we actually have a new category on Fiverr, which is “Social Media Advertising,” under “Digital Marketing.” And what you actually do for this is basically help people set up various ads such as Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads, Google Ads, etc. and the great thing about this, is that most of the ad platforms actually provide free training and sometimes even actual certification for running ads, for example, we’ve got for Facebook here, we’ve got the Facebook for Business learning center, and then for Google we have the Google Skillshop, with Google Ads and where you can also get certified, as well as for Microsoft, we have the Microsoft Advertising Learning Lab, where you can also get certified as a Microsoft advertising professional.
Plus, I also have a tutorial for setting up a Facebook Pixel, which is crucial for tracking people who visit a website, for one to be able to retarget them with ads. And I’ll link this video in the description box as well.
Fievrr gig 8
Going on to gig #8, we have “Email Marketing”which can actually entail a lot of different things, from helping people get set up on a given email marketing platform such as Mailchimp, or providing them with email marketing templates to doing copywriting.
But like with social media ads, I also think that email marketing is fairly easy to learn especially with all of the tutorials and templates provided right to you from most of these email marketing platforms that you yourself can sign up for. And for example, on Getresponse, which is what I use, you’ll not only get optimized email templates for various purposes that you can use for your clients, but it also comes with pre-built email marketing funnel templates that you can actually save and download as templates for your clients to reupload.
And like with many of the other methods I’ve shared, I’ll also have a step-by-step tutorial on Getresponse that I’ll link in my description along with a sign-up link you can use if your’e interested. And that was “Email Marketing” at #8.
Fievrr gig 9
And going onto #9, is “Research and Summaries” for which you can actually help people conduct research on any given topic and provide some citations for them.
And a website that is deceptively good for this, is actually Google itself, but not just the normal Google search, but rather Google’s Advanced Search for finding actually credible sources and/or academic research.
And the trick to doing this is down over by the domain box right here, you type in “.edu” for educational websites, or “.gov” for government websites, like I’ve done here, or “.org” for organizations, all of which will generally give you legitimate sources which are safely, or you can safely cite for a given topic. And for example, here I’ve typed in “Social distancing” and have “.gov” and I can just hit “Advanced Search.”
And as you can see here, besides the ad at the top, all of the websites that have come up are government websites including the CDC which is the Center for Disease Control, which is definitely a legitimate source, and this is another one from the CDC and so on and so forth, so you can generally safely quote and get accurate research from these types of websites. And finally, going onto the last gig, at #10, we have “Ebook Creation” which can be very easily done and can be very profitable indeed if you just use a software called Sqribble to generate and format ebooks pretty much in a few clicks, with even the contents created automatically for you from their huge article database.
Therefore, I definitely recommend Sqribble especially if you also want to use ebooks to make money elsewhere such as selling them or using them as lead magnets to build your email list.
Alternatively, if you’re a good writer, you can also design ebooks using Canva.com and perhaps combine that with Google Docs, which are both free. But I would still recommend to at least take a look at Sqribble which I’ll also link in the description box for your convenience! And that was 10 Fiverr gigs plus over 10 tools you can learn and master fairly easily. But because they would still generally be considered as active income, I personally prefer more passive income methods.
