The year 2017 saw many Nigerians become financially free and that trend would continue in 2018. The reason is obvious – there are many people in need of digital services than ever. With the population of internet users hitting 3.58 billion in 2017, the digital needs of people will be greater than ever!
One of the places where these needs are met is Fiverr. Fiverr is one of the largest and most popular freelance marketplaces on the internet. With way over 3 million users, you just cannot lack a market for your skills. Due to its affordability since all gigs begin from $5 (from which it derives its name), there are (and will always be) crowds of people who see Fiverr as their favourite freelance website.
Many people hoped to profit from freelancing last year but couldn’t because they offer overcrowded gigs like article writing. Remember what basic economics teach? Whenever supply outweighs demand, the price of the product crashes. If you’re one those people in overcrowded gigs, it’s about time you learned offered other gigs with few people sellers.
So take this as a word of advice: avoid the highly competitive gigs!
