If your last visit to fiverr was in 2012 or 2013, you’ll definitely need to start learning things again. Fiverr has emerged to be one of the best freelancing websites available today. There are more than three million gigs on fiverr, which means that you can’t easily find a comprehensive list of the most popular gigs.  In this short article I will list the most popular categories and highlight some of the top selling gigs in those categories.

Graphics design

Graphics design is undoubtedly one of the most popular categories on fiverr. There are more than 20 sub-categories under graphics design.

The last category on my list is digital marketing. Like I said in the opening paragraph, if have not visited fiverr since 2013, you’ve got to learn a lot of things. Digital marketing was introduced early in 2016, and some of the best selling gigs in various categories have been relocated to the category. Some of the popular gigs under the digital marketing are:
