What’s the deal?

Fiverr is the holy grail of outsourcing sites! Whether you need a new brochure designed, a killer website, or Facebook likes – fiverr has it all! Top talent from across the globe have accounts on fiverr, ready and willing to provide amazing work at a fraction of the cost.

For $5 you have access to top quality services in media, graphic design, marketing, IT services, writing, and much more. The $5 offerings are called “gigs” and each vendor specifies what you’ll get for $5. For example, $5 may score you a custom logo, or 100 likes on your business’ Facebook page.

What’s the mobile story?

Their mobile app is available for free download in the Apple App Store or through GooglePlay. Now, you can snag great deals on much needed work on the go!

How much?

1 gig = $5.00. Larger work orders or custom requests will cost more, but the price is set by the vendor.

As with any outsourcing site, due diligence goes a long way! Fiverr has an awesome customer service team should an issue arise. Reading through client reviews and checking out their online portfolio are great ways to make your $5 gig a success.
