Fiverr is a flexible and forward-thinking “gig economy” portal that allow professionals in various fields to offer their services starting at $5. This allows professionals to offer competitive rates to clients, while allowing clients to save money and get things done even on the tightest of budgets. The website is particularly great for people who run small businesses or start-ups…for example all you bloggers out there! And of course, there’s an app which makes it extra convenient to use.
If you take your blog seriously, you’ve probably already found that managing a blog all by yourself is no piece of cake. A little helping hand could get you the extra mile toward reaching your goals. A helping hand is great idea, but what new blogger has the budget to hire a full team? I’ve found Fiverr to be the solution. For as little as $5, you can find talented writers who can contribute to your content, helping you produce more writing and therefore, post more often. On the other hand, if you are adamant about handling the writing side of things (like me), Fiverr offers a whole lot of other services that you could make use of. For example, Fiverr is a great source of stock images (courtesy of Getty Images) as well as hosting many sellers who provide original sketches.
I love Fiverr for creating Pinterest pics and EBook cover images for me. While I love to do my own writing, my computer image skills aren’t fantastic. As much as we all say, “don’t judge a book by its cover”, in this day of EBooks, the cover is the first impression, and many won’t look past it. I’m certainly guilty of browsing Amazon books by title and cover alone and then clicking on ones that “look” interesting, and I know I’m not the only one. I don’t want to lose readers to a poorly designed cover when I could get a professional cover for $5.
My next Fiverr endeavor – videos! I’m not the most outgoing of people, so the idea of videoing myself and posting those videos online is a little scary. On Fiverr, I can hire someone to read the script that I send them and I can use this to make my tutorial, thus creating my video without me in a starring role (until I get over my stage fright). 🙂
If you want to take your content to the next level, Fiverr can also help you get creative with an incredibly vast array of services, from narrations and voiceovers to video animations that could spice up your blog and give it a multi-media twist. If your going out-of-town and would like to hire a blog or social media manager, you can find someone on Fiverr. If your new to blogging and need someone to help you setup your WordPress site, but your strapped for cash, check out Fiverr. You never know what gigs might be offered until you give it a look. It’s a fantastic place to find virtual assistants for every task. Want to know some of my favorite gigs for different things? I’m always happy to share who I use. Contact Me Here or leave a comment. 🙂
