Translations and crypto are UK SMEs top concerns

Translation Services

Translation services and cryptocurrencies are the top priorities for UK SMEs as the country moves out of Brexit and national lockdown.

That is according to data from Fiverr’s 2021 Small Business Needs Index. The report – based on billions of small business searches for freelancer support – shows queries for translations have skyrocketed by 300% in the last year as small businesses look to grow beyond Britain’s borders in the wake of Brexit.

And many may be following in the footsteps of Elon Musk’s Tesla by investing in cryptocurrencies like bitcoin – as searches for crypto keywords have increased by 99%.

Overall, the report shows the three of the top areas of growth are:

Translation: 300% increase in searches for freelance support

  • Streetwear Design: searches for freelance support for streetwear design such as ‘Clothing Manufacturer’ and ‘SEO Shopify’ are up by 142%
  • Cryptocurrency: 99% increase in searches for freelance support around ‘Crypto’ and ‘Bitcoin’

Fiverr’s Small Business Needs Index analyses data from billions of searches on the platform to discover largest increases for business services around the globe.

In the UK, the top 10 most increased searches for Small Businesses include:

  1. Translation, 301%
  2. Dropshipping Video Ad, 289%
  3. Shopify Expert, 193%
  4. Mobile App Building, 192%
  5. Twitch emotes, 186%
  6. Ebay Account, 172%
  7. Ghost Producer, 166%
  8. Roblox Scripting, 161%
  9. Streetwear Design, 142%
  10. Business Plan Writer, 133%

Peggy de Lange, VP of International Expansion at Fiverr said: “Small businesses have shown great resilience in a year rocked by the pandemic and Brexit, and this data is representative of that. Whilst a rise in freelance translation requests could be indicative of foreign talent leaving the UK, there are new trends that demonstrate the agility of UK small businesses during times of adversity. One such area is fashion. The shift from in-person retail experiences to boutique online small businesses has been advantageous to small independent fashion brands who are under less pressure to be sold by retailers. Many people have used lockdowns as an opportunity to turn a passion into a business or side hustle and this is clear from the rapid influx of requests around streetwear design and cryptocurrency services.”
