Decide on your Gig
There are many different ways to decide on what gig to sell on Fiverr. Some people choose the gigs that are closest to their skills and capabilities, while others choose the gigs they believe are in high demand.
The best way to decide what gig to sell on Fiverr is by looking at the competition in your niche. Look for gigs that have been started recently, which means that they don’t have too many orders waiting for them yet.
The other thing that you need to look out for is the reviews. Reviews indicate whether customers are satisfied with the service provided, so you know whether someone else has been having success with it.
However, If you are just starting out, then you should focus on selling services that you are skilled at rather than trying to sell something that you are not particularly good at. It is always better to start with something smaller and become successful with it before taking on bigger projects. (My personal opinion)
Below are some of the WordPress gig ideas
- Website creation
- Customization service
- Bug fix service
- Building Landing Page
- Performance improvements
- SEO optimization
Create A New Gig
This is the first step you need to take when creating any gig. Look at the top-right hand corner of your screen and you’ll see “create a new gig.” Click on it to get started.
Gig Title, Select Category, And Add Meta Tags
The next step is to create a unique gig title. This gig title is a brief description of your gig and is what comes up first when people search for your gig and it must not be more than 80 characters.
If you are a bit confused about how to create a gig title, just check out the titles of other WordPress sellers.
When it comes to categories, WordPress gigs fall under the “Programming & Tech” category, so you should place your gig here.
Next, you’ll add meta tags. The platform allows you to add up to five search tags that will bring up your gig when they are searched on the platform. This will boost your findability and, of course, bring in sales.
So make sure to use the right tags related to WordPress.
Set Your WordPress Gig Pricing
At this step, you set the price for your WordPress gig.
There are usually three packages on Fiverr – basic, standard, and premium and the prices differ depending on the extra services that you offer.
For example, you may decide to offer more designs, layouts, faster delivery, or even an extra site for standard or premium levels. However, I would suggest that you do some research on what others charge before setting your price.
Write A Brief Description Of Your WordPress Gig And Add FAQ
A good WordPress gig description will bring you more clients. This is where you tell buyers about your WordPress service(s) and give them reasons why they should work with you.
Don’t write your description in a hurry or you might make mistakes. Write it meticulously and ensure it is free from grammatical, structural, and spelling errors. Also, make it enticing enough to bring clients in.
This should be done in 1,200 words. Use it judiciously.
WordPress is a website design and building tool, so this is where you pour your skills and experience. Let clients know your strength, experience, and execution ability.
Below are a few sample WordPress gig descriptions.
“Hello, my name is

Here is a list of my skills:
-Efficient & creative WordPress design: Theme customization, graphic design, custom CSS “
Those are some examples of gig descriptions, but I would encourage you to check your competitors’ gig descriptions and use them as inspiration when writing your own.
Ask Clients To Add WordPress Service(S) Requirements
While clients may find your WordPress gig description great and all-encompassing, they may have a few requirements of their own that you didn’t capture.
Ask them to enter their WordPress service(s) requirements and work in line with them. This will avert any future dispute about works done.
A much better option would be to include a line in your Gig description to contact you before placing an order.
Add An Image Or A Video To Your Gig
Adding a cool photo or video will give clients a good impression of you. Your photo or video speaks volumes of your gig so you have to choose the right one. You can upload a photo, video, or PDF file on Fiverr.
Publish Your Gig
Now that we’ve reached the final step, your WordPress gig will go live once you hit “publish gig” on Fiverr. Clients who need services related to WordPress will be able to find you.
