What can you get for $5 now a days… it seems not much. Maybe a cup of coffee at your favorite cafe, but definitely not an hour of consulting or having your own assistant. An excellent site called Fiverr.com has changed the game for what $5 can buy you. The site isn’t only for people for $5 to spend, but it’s also for those who’d like to make some money… even if it’s only $5 at a time. In short, Fiverr.com is like a fun and cool version of eLance, but everything is just FIVE BUCKS!
Take a look through the site and you will be surprised at what you can find. They have a ton of translators, graphic designers, individuals to help you with setting up a wordpress blog and a lot more. Don’t get too excited! Remember, this is only $5! A lot of listings on the web site are entertaining and exciting, but I wouldn’t expect to receive advice to bring my business to the next level, or have a new logo or site designed with the same quality that would cost a few hundred elsewhere.
From Twitter marketing, Facebook comment posting, article writing and just plain old weird… Fiverr.com is loaded up with a massive amount of useful and useless services for only $5. Here’s just an example of what you might find on Fiverr.
With that said, the site is very cool and don’t be surprised if you find yourself wasting a few hours looking through the site. There are definitely a few gems that can help save you some time through outsourcing, and you may even look to bring someone in long term.
Whether you are buying a service for five bucks, or trying to sell an exciting new idea or service to it’s buyers, Fiverr.com is loaded with exciting new ways to spend and receive services $5 dollars at a time. With a self governing feedback system like eBay, it makes for quite the community and will weed out the legitimate services from others.
