Brainstorming Fiverr gig ideas
As Emo Philips once observed, “Some mornings it just doesn’t seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.”
You’re allowed to put up as many as 20 gigs on Fiverr, you sooo want to and you’re desperate for inspiration. Face it: All the easy, obvious gig ideas have been done already. Hold up a sign? Passe. Video testimonial? BTDT (and it may be illegal in the U.S.) Put a link on your blogroll? Yawn.
Here’s a fun concept:
But why stop at hands? You can put words so many places: forehead, chest, back, bottom of foot, ankle, midriff. You can even get cheeky and use a discreetly exposed buttock. Dig that thong (we know you have one) out of the back of the closet. Prance around a bit. Anyone remember Goldie Hawn doing this on _Laugh In_? Add high-energy music and you’ve got a winner.
Or how about this: Instead of doing that typical screaming-like-a-madman bit — which is bound to become a cliche before long — why not offer a gig where you make a custom video that teaches an entrepreneur the basics of making their own attention-getting flicks? Before she was Lady Gaga, Lady Gaga posted a series of vids to YouTube and organically grew a following. Help others do the same.
Do you have Skype? Perhaps you’re an expert on weight training, SEO, how to score with chicks, growing orchids or blogging, so why not offer to do lunch? You and your customer brown-bag it, then you sit down to munch and talk about the topic at hand. Your mom asked me to remind you not to chew with your mouth open.
