Never heard of Fiverr? You're really missing out.

From professional web developers to celebrity impersonators, Fiverr is a marketplace for every kind of freelancer imaginable.

And although nowadays there's no guarantee that the service will cost $5, there's a good chance that it won't cost much more – and in some cases, it can cost even less.

With prices that even the most penny-pinching student would struggle to turn down, we decided to delve into Fiverr and discover some of the best gigs to buy as a student.

The below gigs may make your life easier, but you could also do gigs on Fiverr to help others (and get paid for it!).

Best Fiverr gigs for students

Here are some of the best gigs on Fiverr that can make your life easier:

  1. Get an irresistible Tinder profile

    Dating apps aren't for everyone – but it's fair to say that once you're on them, they're pretty hard to give up. Who knew swiping left and right could be so fun?!

    However, the fun can quickly stop if your right swipes aren't being reciprocated. We firmly believe that there's someone out there for everyone, and if you're on a bit of an unlucky streak, it could be time to revamp your profile.

    But how? You could ask your friends to review it for you, but that can get pretty awkward pretty quickly. Instead, you can hire a Fiverr seller to rewrite your profile for you.

    Depending on your budget, Fiverr's dating app assistants can make as many or as few changes as you want, as well as choosing which pictures to lead with.

    Interested? Have a look at mrstyle247 – he's got tons of great reviews and his prices are very reasonable.

  2. Promote your music to huge new audiences

    Make music? Convinced you're set for the big time, but struggling to get noticed? Well, Fiverr could be the answer to your prayers.

    There are dozens (if not hundreds!) of Fiverr sellers who can help promote your music to a whole range of new audiences.

    From getting your songs added to an online playlist, to being played on the radio, the opportunities are almost endless.

  3. Hire an online maths tutor

    Just as the written word isn't for everyone, numbers can also be a source of great pain for anyone who isn't especially mathematically minded.

    But sadly, as many social science students can testify, maths can worm its way into anything. If your degree requires you to carry out an experiment, there's a good chance that you'll have to collect data and carry out some kind of statistical analysis as part of the process.

    Some of you might be lucky enough to have friends who can teach you the difference between chi-squares and T-tests, but for those who don't, there are tons of tutors on Fiverr who can lend a helping hand.

  4. Have a t-shirt designed just for you

    Isn't it weird how you spend all your years at school wishing you could wear your own clothes, and then when you get to uni, you worry about what you should be wearing on a day-to-day basis? Maybe uniforms aren't so bad after all, eh?

    Anyway, if you're concerned that you'll end up looking like everyone else, there's no better way to guarantee a unique look than by getting a t-shirt (or two... or three) custom-made by one of the t-shirt and merchandise designers on Fiverr.

  5. Hire an impressionist to impress your friends

    It's hard to say just why impressions are funny, but it's fair to say that they definitely are. And now, thanks to Fiverr, you can hire an impressionist to say... well, whatever you want them to!

    Whether you're after a Morgan Freeman or Donald Trump (or pretty much any other celebrity) soundbite, Fiverr's impressionists should be able to help.

    So, if you're looking to add a touch of stardust to your student radio show, or record the ultimate birthday message for a friend, a celebrity impression will always go down a treat.

  6. Get your computer fixed for a fraction of the normal cost

    We've all been there. You're finally making headway with a tedious 3,000 word essay, and then BAM – your laptop decides now is the time to be temperamental. The assignment is due in a couple of days, and there's no way that you'll be able to take your laptop in for repair and get it sorted before then.

    Fortunately, depending on the issue, one of Fiverr's IT support sellers could help resolve your issue in a fraction of the time, and for a fraction of the cost.

    As long as you can still access the internet with your computer (and assuming it's a software issue, not hardware), you may not even need to leave the comfort of your own bed to get it fixed. If one of Fiverr's sellers can remotely control your PC, that should be enough.

  7. Get some professional designs for your posters or leaflets

    You shouldn't judge a book by its cover. But let's face it, we all do – especially when it comes to leaflets and posters. If the design is anything below a 5/10, you instantly start to doubt the quality of whatever it's advertising.

    As a student, you could need promotional materials for any number of things: publicising an event, running in the student elections, or even campaigning for a cause that matters to you. But whatever you're up to, do yourself a favour and get your flyers done properly by one of Fiverr's graphic designers.

    There seems to be a Fiverr designer for pretty much every message or tone imaginable, but few come as highly recommended as sunshee and soft_solutionss.

  8. Hire a personal trainer

    It's easy to slip into the sedentary student lifestyle at uni. Between eight hours of lectures and the obligatory night out each week, the only thing you've got to do are your assignments. It doesn't exactly add up to a healthy, active way of life.

    Hitting the treadmill seems like the natural solution, but while there are plenty of ways to get a cheaper gym membership (plus a whole host of ways to keep fit without the gym), none of it's much use if you don't know what you're doing. Enter: Fiverr's personal trainers.

    Real-life PTs can cost a fortune (certainly more than a typical student can afford), and although Fiverr's sellers won't be able to stand with you in person and force you to do 10 more reps, they can craft a personalised workout plan for you. In fact, depending on the level of support you're after, you could even get a meal plan thrown in too.

    When it comes to fitness, it's very much a case of what works for you – but that said, the reviews for youssefhanna93 would suggest that he's a solid choice.
