When you start off and all the time throughout College you are most likely going to need and want some extra money. There are many ways in which you can make money as a college student, but I would like to guide you into the world of freelancing from the comfort of your home.
Why choose to freelance while in College?
Well, you are a student, and you need jobs that are flexible, so you can work when you can work, study when you have to study, and party when you want to.

While freelancing, you can work on awesome projects with excellent clients whenever you have the time to do so, and stop working whenever you need.

In this article, I am going to share with you how to make money as a college student on Fiverr.
Fiverr is the best marketplace where you can earn money by doing any kind of gigs starting at 5 dollars. The name Fiverr has a five in it, because you offer services for 5$.
You can provide services from Graphic & Design, Online Marketing, Writing & Translation, Video & Animation, Music & Audio, Programming, Tech, Advertising, Business, Lifestyle, Gifs, Fun, Bizarre and many, many other categories and subcategories. There are thousands of different services(gigs) offered on Fiverr, and the services that you can sell on this website is unlimited.
Fiverr just recently announced that they are soon to become a billion dollar company and with that they are planning on improving Fiverr(which is already pretty awesome) and making the gig economy stronger.
What are the qualifications that you need to be eligible to work and to earn lots of money on Fiverr? How do you make money as a college student on Fiverr? Basically, if you have any skills that you can offer online, then you can surely work and sell gigs on Fiverr.
You can choose what you sell on Fiverr and what kind of gig are you selling. Maybe you want to offer services like writing or proofreading, or maybe you want to offer some completely crazy services like ‘I will put a Pie on my face and Say what you want’.
It is important to decide what kind of a gig you are going to offer. Figure out what your best skills and hobbies are and what type of product or service can you sell.
No idea is a bad idea on Fiverr.
Your idea, your gig that you are offering can be completely nuts, and you might be surprised that people will actually pay for it. Also, of course, your idea can be something mainstream. It is important to choose something that you enjoy doing.
Don’t offer gigs that require hours of work, especially if you are offering just $5 gigs. Offer something that you can do in 10-30 minutes and offer it on Fiverr. If you offer services for $5, and you need hours to complete them, you are not really getting a good bargain there.
Fiverr also has awesome features like levels, where when you level up you get more options like being able to charge up to $325 for a single gig.
