A freelancing platform like Fiverr is a great way to make some extra money. But what exactly is a “gig”? A gig is simply a task or service that you offer to buyers on the site. And while you can pretty much offer anything you want, there are some gigs that are more popular – and therefore, more likely to sell – than others. In this post, we’ll share some tips on how to create a gig on Fiverr that buyers will love. From identifying your skillset to writing an enticing description, we’ll cover everything you need to get started.
What is a gig on Fiverr?
A gig on Fiverr is an online service that you can offer to others for a set price of $5. You can offer any service you like, from simple tasks such as writing a short article or creating a graphic to more complex services such as web design or video editing. There is no limit to what you can offer, and you can set your own price for each gig. Once you have set up your gig, anyone can purchase it and you will be notified via email. Once the buyer has accepted your gig, you have 24 hours to complete the task and deliver it to the buyer.

Assuming you have a Fiverr account (if not, create one at Fiverr), creating a gig is easy:
1) Log in to your Fiverr account
2) Click on the “Sell” tab at the top of the page
3) Click on the “Create a New Gig” button
4) Enter a gig title (e.g., “I will design an amazing logo for your company”)
5) Select a category and subcategory for your gig (e.g., Design & Creative > Graphics & Design)
6) Enter a brief description of your gig (this will appear in search results)
7) Enter some keywords that buyers might use to search for your gig (e.g., logo, design, branding)

9) On your Fiverr homepage, click on Selling and then on Gigs.
You will be taken to a page where you can browse through the different gigs that are available for sale. When you find a gig that interests you, click on the gig title to view more information about it.

Click on create a new gig
Assuming you would like tips on how to create a gig on Fiverr:
When you log in to your Fiverr account, click on the “Sell” link at the top of the page and then select “Create a Gig.”
You will then be taken to a page where you can start creating your gig. The first thing you need to do is come up with a catchy title for your gig and a brief description of what it is that you are offering.
Be sure to use keywords that potential buyers will be searching for so that your gig comes up in their search results. Once you have completed this step, click on the “Continue” button.
On the next page, you will need to select a category and subcategory for your gig. Again, be sure to choose something that is relevant to what you are selling. Once you have made your selection, click on the “Continue” button.
The next step is to upload an image for your gig. This image should be something that represents what you are selling. If you are selling a service, such as a logo design, you could upload an image of your design.
If you are selling a physical product, then you will need to upload an image of that product. Once you have uploaded your image, click on the “Continue” button In.
Create a Gig title, select category and meta tags
Your gig title is the first thing potential buyers will see, so make it short, clear, and to the point. The title should be descriptive enough that buyers know exactly what they’re getting, but not so long that it’s difficult to read.
Once you’ve written your gig title, select an appropriate category from the list on the left-hand side of the screen. If you can’t find a perfect fit, choose the one that’s closest.
Then, add some relevant keywords or “meta tags” in the text box below your gig title. These keywords will help buyers find your gig when they search for related terms on Fiverr. After you’ve added your tags, click “Save and Continue.”
Set your gig pricing
When it comes to gig pricing on Fiverr, there are a few things to keep in mind. First and foremost, you want to make sure your prices are in line with what other sellers are offering for similar services. Secondly, take into account the time and effort required to complete the gig, as well as any unique skills or experience you may have that add value.
If you’re just starting out, it’s ok to start with lower prices in order to get some initial traction and reviews. Just be sure to adjust your prices accordingly as you gain more experience and positive feedback from buyers.
And lastly, don’t forget to factor in Fiverr’s commission when setting your gig prices – they take 20% of each transaction, so be sure to price your gigs accordingly!
Write a gig description and FAQ
When you create a gig on Fiverr, you will need to write a description of what you are offering and include any relevant FAQs. Your gig description should be clear and concise, and it should explain exactly what the buyer will receive. Make sure to include any information that the buyer might need in order to make an informed decision, such as the length of the gig, any deadlines, or what format the final product will be delivered in.

Add photos or a video to your gig
If you want to add multimedia to your gig, you have two options: photos or video. Adding photos is a great way to show off your work and give potential buyers an idea of what they can expect from your gig. To add a photo, simply click the “Add Photo” button on the left-hand side of the screen. You can then choose a file from your computer to upload.
Adding a video is also a great way to show off your work, and can be a more engaging way to sell your gig than just photos. To add a video, click the “Add Video” button on the left-hand side of the screen. Then, paste in the URL of the video you’d like to add. The video will then appear on your gig page.
Publish your gig
Publishing your gig is the first step to getting started on Fiverr! To publish your gig, start by logging into your account and clicking on the “Sell Services” tab at the top of the page. From there, click on the “Create New Gig” button.
On the next page, you will be asked to select a category and subcategory for your gig. Choose carefully as this will help buyers find your gig more easily. Once you have chosen a category, you will be able to give your gig a title and write a brief description.
The next step is to upload a video or image for your gig. This is optional but recommended, as it can help increase views and clicks on your gig. After that, you will need to set a price for your gig and choose how long you would like it to be delivered.
Once you have finished all of these steps, click on the “Publish Gig” button at the bottom of the page and your gig will go live!
