Fiverr is a new site, where individuals can list just about anything (and absolutely nothing) they would be willing to do for $5. This includes some of the following:
- posing as a professional reference for a job seeker
- sending postcards/becoming a pen pal from anywhere around the globe
- getting rid of branded schwag you no longer need
- offering questionable “adult” services, including sending pictures of ones pedicured feet, steamy voicemail recordings, etc.
- creative services, such as logo design, photo editing, etc.
- business services, like advice, micro-consulting (hey, I think I’ve coined a new term), etc.
So, as part of an experiment in testing out the service, I thought I’d put up a listing. Here it is:
Have a small business (deli, salon, boutique, etc.) and want to get into social media? As a small biz owner/employee, you probably don’t have the time to research/learn which sites could reach the optimal amount of potential customers. Send me a brief background on your business, and I write a one paragraph recommendation on one social media site you should be contributing content on to help branding, build buzz, & attract customers.
Overall, Fiverr is a little more desperate than Craigslist, but easier and free relative to eBay since the buyers incur the service fee, and not the sellers. I’ll be sure to document how my first gig goes, but please folks, don’t all come rushing in at once.
