From over driving to walking paths, side hustles are a common way to earn additional income. But if you want to significantly turn up the heat of your earnings, freelancing on Fiverr is one of the ways to go.
Fiverr is a platform where entrepreneurs and freelancers meet to rub each other’s back – entrepreneurs get their needs fulfilled, and freelancers get paid for services offered.
Now, so much has been said about the profitability of remotely freelancing on Fiverr. But with over 100 niches or service categories available on the platform alongside the ton of competition, Fiverr can be a little bit intimidating – especially if you are new.
Heck, it can even start to feel a little bit like the wild west.
We helped you do some research and curated this list of best-selling and highest-paying niches that Fiverr freelancers like yourself can focus on.
Now, of these niches, there are some that just about anyone can do, and with some, you need a bit of research and skill acquisition. Others, you just downright can’t do, because they are specialized.
Let’s get to it.
Θ Video editing or video marketing
Here, you can basically make use of iMovie Final Cut Pro, Windows Media, Premiere Pro, amongst other tools, to help people edit their videos. It’s that simple.
And nowadays, almost everyone needs a video editor. Talk of numerous small companies that don’t have a social media presence and can’t afford to permanently hire a video editor. Or even individuals who need amazing videos for one or two things. Even big companies sometimes prefer freelancers because of the varying spices in projects delivered.
This isn’t to say that you can get between three hundred and eighteen thousand for a job – that’s quite a big for a single project. But you could definitely charge between one and five hundred dollars for basic video editing of a ten, fifteen, or twenty-minute video.
Sounds like quite an appealing thing to try? You should get started with it today.
Look what these first-page video editors are charging and the huge estimated number of people they’ve serviced so far.
Θ Website Building and Development
Now, website building is obviously a hard nut to crack because you need to know CSS or HTML or Java or some sort of coding language. However, you could make a store such as Shopify, WordPress, Wix, or a Squarespace store without any knowledge.
Plenty of people with no technical knowledge do this all the time and charge thousands of dollars, pounds, or whatever currency works with you.
If you go to Fiverr and create a gig like the below, you’ll be surprised at how many people we massage you that they need the service.
Once the orders start rolling in, you don’t need any specialized knowledge to get them done – it’s straightforward. There is plenty of tutorials and resources on YouTube that’d come in handy in quickly getting such jobs done.
You’re probably looking at charging anywhere from say 300 all the way to a thousand, depending on the complexity of the website requested.
Θ Mobile App Development
This particularly is one of the top-paying specialized niches on Fiverr. Because you’d surely need some sort of specialty or particular skill set, this niche is highly lucrative. Unlike website building, there’s no shortcut with which pretty anyone can build and develop apps and this kind of limits the supply (or sellers) of this service.
Well, there are automation tools that can help you create some sort of customized torch or calculator app, but we both know that isn’t the type of apps clients want to be done. But if you intend to help Fiverr buyers create decent mobile apps and don’t have the necessary coding or programming knowledge, there’s an alternative.
You could easily outline or design how the client wants the app structured, and then outsource the actual development to a mobile app developer.

Θ Graphic design
Graphic design jobs are all over the place because everyone needs a graphic designer to help them professionally create logos, flyers, posters, infographics, info cards, business cards, you name it.
And yes, you need to understand what you’re doing for graphic design too. By doing a lot of research online, you can get very good at the niche.

You could do logo jobs for people, create flyers, and design people’s business cards – the opportunities are endless and can pay quite a lot.
You can easily charge anywhere up to maybe 10 to 50 pounds or dollars for a logo design job, depending on how big it is. Whereas, if someone said to design a whole flyer or an entire infographic, you’re looking at charging a bit more than that.
So, make sure to look into it. Or wouldn’t you want to earn what this freelancer is making?
