1. Become a Content Writer
You will be surprised that there is a huge demand for content writers on Fiverr.
To be honest, not every website owner or blogger writes his/her content.
Many a time they like to outsource their content writing requirements with Fiverr.
There is no harm in doing that as long as the content is unique, plagiarism free and authentic.
As a content writer on Fiverr, you can charge anywhere from $5 to up to $50 for 500 words of content.

3. Teach English on Fiverr
Teaching English on Fiverr is not a very popular gig.
I am being honest here!
But as an English teacher teaching English in South East Asia for over 3 years, I see this as a huge potential for Fiverr Sellers.
Demand for ESL teachers is getting higher year after year in many Non-English Speaking Countries.
So, why not make the best use of it?
Let’s start with the basics on How You Can Become a Certified English Teacher?
- The first step is to get a college degree (bachelors degree)
- Get an online TESOL or TEFL Certificate
There are many online TESOL/TEFL accredited programs.
Doing an online TESOL/TEFL will cost you anywhere around $150 to $350 to be a certified teacher.
To be honest, it’s worth the investment.
For a 1 hour ESL Lesson, you can charge your students from $25 – $30 depending on your teaching experience.
You can focus on teaching –
- Conversational Speech and Pronunciation
- IELTS Exam Preparation
- Job Interview Preparation
- Improve your students Listening Skills
- Presentation Skills
- and much more…
You can even offer your students a monthly teaching package if they previously liked your 1 hour ESL teaching gig.
For a monthly package, you can charge your students around $100 (2 classes per week or 1 class per week; per class duration for an hour; a total of 4-8 sessions a month).
Imagine you have 10 students enrolled for your monthly package, you could be earning easily $1000 plus.
So, you can see teaching English online is a very profitable business.
4. Become a Social Media Influencer
