Most of you have already heard about Fiverr.com. In short, it’s a marketplace where people will do nearly anything for $5. Everything from video testimonials, to coding web sites or even dressing up in something silly and saying whatever you want. The bottom line is that Fiverr has a lot of potential and opportunity for you to outsource simple jobs that can be completed quickly and for just a few dollars.
Here are five quick jobs that you can start outsourcing to Fiverr.
Honestly, the rates to have some celebrities and people send out a “sponsored tweet” to their audience is quite insane. We’re talking thousands of dollars for Kim Khardashian to send out a tweet to her millions of users. Sure, it would be great for branding, but the ROI is usually never there. Instead, you can play with $5 at a time and see the results you might get through Fiverr users tweeting out to their audience. Don’t expect high quality and amazing results… but when you compare the rate of $5 to have your message sent out to 50,000 followers, or going the other route… the difference is ridiculous!
There are actually full agency companies that specialize in the business of providing legitimate video testimonials for companies, which are then used on commercials and landing pages across the internet. Going this route will cost you thousands of dollars. If you are looking for something much simpler and quick, there are plenty of users on Fiverr offering video testimonial and review services for only $5! Depending on what you are having reviewed, and how you are going to run these… check with legal counsel first just to be safe.
Backlinks & Link Wheels
Everyone is always talking about building backlinks to web sites and how important it is. The usual deciding factor on your SEO efforts comes down to time and money. When outsourcing to Fiverr jobs, you save both time and money. Don’t expect the same type of results as going with legitimate guys like SEO Link Wheelers, but instead n Fiverr you will have people spin articles and get your links out there. Not the type of stuff you want linking back to your main home page, but can definitely help if you know how to build incoming links to your landing pages which lead to money pages.
Banner & Ad Copy Creation
There is such a demand to make money online that even design services are now offered on Fiverr. You can get full landing pages and banners designed for anything you can think of. You will have to try a few different jobs out, as many lack in quality, but there are some decent designers offering services on Fiverr. For $5, you can’t go wrong… and we all know that ugly ad copy and banners continually surprises us and works better than flashy and expensive designs!
Everyone always needs a copy writer or something to keep producing new content for your web sites. Fiverr is full of everything from original content writers, to people who can spin articles, or even critique some content you have written. Many writers on Fiverr will create unique 300-500 word articles for only $5, which comes out to under two cents per word. Not bad compared to many other paid writing services out there.
To find any of the jobs listed above, just head over to Fiverr and search any of the key title phrases above. To make your browsing most effective, make use of the Fiverf filters, which will allow you to only see the popular jobs, best rated, and those that have videos and are completed within 24 hours.
Fiverr is a gold mine of information and services which can be outsourced for cheap. The difference between having success and failure is actually taking the time to find the right services and sticking with those that offer high quality and work. I’ve personally done over 200 orders through Fiverr in the past year, and it’s all about finding the gems within the sea of mediocre jobs.
