Fiverr announces new categories as searches for AI-related services surge

Micha Kaufman, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Fiverr

Fiverr International Ltd., the company that is revolutionizing how the world works together, introduced new AI categories and skills to its catalog. This decision was made to meet the demand from artists and programmers who have embraced new AI tools, like Midjourney, ChatGPT and Dall-E and businesses who are looking at how they can leverage this new tech.

Why are the new categories timely?

Searches for AI-related services have increased over 1400% in the last six months on the platform. Business leaders are not only eager to integrate AI into their operations, sales and marketing campaigns, but are also searching for the people who are skilled using these tools.

”We are living in an era with so much progress and velocity in technology that is creating a raft of new opportunities,” said Micha Kaufman, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Fiverr.

“We have seen an influx of services leveraging AI tools that advance what artists, writers, and programmers can create and sell. The services have created a new baseline expectation for what we can imagine in imagery, copy, and programming, but are nothing without the people who have invested their time and have the right skills to get the best out of them.”

“Technology continues to evolve and create new professions and exciting opportunities. One of the most amazing things about Fiverr, which we have seen over and over again, is that as soon as new technologies or new trends emerge, both demand and supply of these highly skilled freelancers flock to our platform,” Micha Kaufman further commented.

How can freelancers best leverage in-house AI tools?

In addition to the emerging categories of AI services on the marketplace, Fiverr has also developed a number of in-house AI tools. These tools give freelancers access to cutting edge technology which otherwise would be unfeasible for them to implement themselves.

They also increase freelancer productivity and improve the overall buyer experience. With Fiverr Logo Maker, designers can earn passive income while AI helps personalize their logo designs. Recently Fiverr introduced AI Auditions, a tool allowing voiceover artists the opportunity to “generate auditions” for roles without reading a single sentence from a script.

The new AI categories reflects the new tools available for freelancers to enhance their work, and the increased demand for these services from businesses looking for something new.
