Gigs related to YouTube

YouTube is one of the biggest platforms creating content. It is run by Google and has billions of dollars in Ad revenue every year. That is a lot of money! And you can benefit from this massive economy by offering related services on Fiverr. It is a future proof way of making money, since YouTube is an ever growing giant platform with many different forms of content. This will allow you to find a niché category within YouTube content creators that you can specifically target for your Fiverr gigs. This way you may be able to find some new gig ideas to make money on Fiverr.

Here are various gig ideas you can offer related to YouTube:

  • Thumbnail Design
  • Video Editing
  • Topic / Keyword Research
  • Competitor Analysis
  • SEO for description and video titles
  • Video Scripting
  • Video Translation / Transcribing

Make sure that you try to be specific and target down a specific set of content creators who might need your help. The more specialized you are, the better. But don't niché down too deep, since it might also limit you in your capabilities of receiving new orders. 

Current revenues of Youtube and expected growth

Take a look at this statistic that will show you how much money is made on YouTube every year and how the expected growth is providing you a good future proof opportunity to earn money on Fiverr. 


Translation gigs

This is one of the best ways to get started on Fiverr. You can translate english into your native language and when you speak a language that not many people offer, you can still have a good chance of making some quick sales on Fiverr. 

Again, you can try to find an unsaturated niché and offer specialized translations. Translating from Technical English to Technical Spanish and vice versa for example.

Game development in Unity or Godot

Game development is very popular and it is easy to teach yourself through YouTube channels like brackeys. If you are capable of creating your own small projects, you will be able to provide these services on Fiverr and make money quickly. Beware that you need some kind of proof of work and work samples. 

To get started, Godot is much easier and it's also faster in developing simple games. So if you plan to make quick money, you might want to check out this game engine as well.

Creating Advertisements and Marketing strategies

The spending on mobile and desktop Advertisement is a growing market. Especially the mobile advertisement sector is expecting strong growth in the next few years according to statista.


To benefit from this strong market sector, you can offer related services on Fiverr. 

These gig ideas can help you make money on Fiverr in this sector. They have a strong potential even in the years to come:

  • Creating a Marketing strategy for every platform
  • Creating a YouTube marketing strategy
  • Creating a TikTok marketing strategy
  • Creating Video advertisement optimized for mobile ads
  • Setting up an advertising campaign on Google Ads

Note: You need a certain set of skills to offer gigs on Fiverr in this category. Not everyone is familiar with effective marketing strategies and if you want to be successful on Fiverr and actually make money off your gigs, you need to offer valuable skills.

If you want to get started and learn how to create effective marketing plans to offer as a Fiverr gig, you can start by checking out this TED Talk:

Research Services

You can offer doing research for others. If you are familiar with a field and have experience in this, you can offer research for nichés. For example medical research, travel research or freelancing. It can be research about anything and if you choose the right category, you can secure a few quick sales. 

If you want to make quick money in this category, try to be as specific as possible and find a small area that you can cover.

Ideas for more specific research categories:

  • Medical information
  • Travel destinations and guides
  • Market trends
  • News trends and public figures
  • History (Medieval, Ancient, Roman Empire, Cold War, World Wars etc.)
  • Freelancing and Business Trends
  • Books and Literature

Discord Server setups

This is a quickly growing category, because Discord becomes more and more popular outside of the gaming community where it originated. You can offer Discord server setups, bot automation and more. These types of orders are not too difficult to finish and can help you make fast money on Fiverr. It is however going to be highly saturated soon, so make sure to get in there quickly and establish yourself as a trusted Seller on Fiverr.

Discord Bot Programming

Similar to Discord Server setup, you can offer to program and create Discord bots for server automation. These bots can do all kinds of tasks and can be very complex or rather simple. If you have basic programming skills in Python, you can easily get started and jump on the train of this quickly growing Fiverr category.

Business Names and Slogans

This category is well established, but everyone with a creative and business mind can offer these services and think of great names and slogans for companies. 

But be aware, this is again, not an easy way to make money. (There is no easy way to make money on Fiverr), because coming up with business ideas and slogans sounds easier than it is. Good business names convey various images of a business and can also have a subconscious layer. So don't jump right into this gig idea, but make sure you are capable of delivering amazing results, otherwise the start as a new seller on Fiverr will be way more difficult. 

Greeting Videos

One of the first categories of Fiverr gigs that went viral! Think of Fiverr Jesus, or other unique ways of creating greeting videos that went viral on YouTube and social media. Funny and creative greetings videos are still a thing and if you come up with crazy and funny ideas, you can still make a quick sale here as well. 

Writing Gigs

Another gig category that you can get into is Article & Blog Writing. Don't get me wrong, writing requires a variety of skills. Creative thinking, understanding of flow of writing and grammar. But, when you are capable of writing fluently in your language, you will be able to offer these services on Fiverr and make some quick money as well. These Fiverr gigs are very popular and it will not be the easiest start, but if you pick one of the examples here you might get a headstart in an unsaturated niché.

  • Article writing
  • Blog Posts Writing
  • Business Emails
  • Engaging Social Media posts
  • Social media captions
  • Tweets about NFTs
  • Products Description
  • Business names and slogans
  • Articles about comedy, freelancing, travel guides, diet plans, business ideas

Image Editing

Another common gig idea for beginner sellers on Fiverr is image editing. If you know your way around photoshop editing, you can use this tool in many ways to make money on Fiverr. Again, you can be very specific to establish yourself in an unsaturated category. 

  • Beautify your portraits in photoshop
  • Remove your background (note: this is very saturated, MANY sellers offer this.)
  • Convert images and logos to vector graphics
  • Coloring of old photos

If you do not have a Photoshop license (which is required to sell your work!) You can look at free alternatives like

It can do most of the things photoshop can do and it's completely free.

Background Removal is one of the easiest ways to make money on Fiverr, but it was advised so many times and everybody can do it, so you will have a hard time to find customers as a new seller. Still, I will leave this free tool here to remove backgrounds from images that you can use in your Fiverr gig.
