Need Big Internet Marketing Ideas and Business Solutions?
Think Smaller with Fiverr.com.
Have you heard of Fiverr.com? Describing themselves as “The world’s largest marketplace for small services, starting at $5,” Fiverr is unique and fascinating entry into the world of internet marketing.
If you’re amazed that anything valuable can be said in 140 characters (Twitter) then perhaps you will be equally shocked by the Fiverr concept. People post services they are willing to do for a measly 5 bucks. But they are frequently not measly services at all, some of them are pretty major!
Are these people desperate? No, in fact they’re innovative, and you might very well want to join them and learn how to use fiverr.
How to Use Fiverr and How it Works:
People post tasks they are willing to do for $5, and others buy them. When someone buys a service, Fiverr takes the $1, so the seller actually only makes $4. Are you becoming less interested now; not more interested?
Please read on! Here’s the genius of it…
People offer services ranging from recording a voiceover in another language, to lip synching the song of your choice. (And that second vendor is listed as a top rated seller!) Buyers leave feedback, which could be very good for bringing in new business.
Fiver is divided into the following sections:
- Funny and Bizarree
- Social Marketing
