Big corporations do it – and so can you as a small publisher: out-sourcing tasks to one of th many freelancers. I am sure you have heard or maybe even used Fiverr already. With several hundred-thousand active listings on the Fiverr site you might find a quick and inexpensive fix for many challenges in self-publishing, website and computer issues and even graphic design jobs. For me, it turned to be a great help for the tiny amount of $5 that I spent on each small gig, ordered at Fiverr. This now 3-year old global online marketplace is offering tasks and services, referred to as ‘gigs’ and micro-jobs, beginning at a cost of $5 per job.
Fiverr originally started out as a new and very unique concept. There were only these well-known large freelancer sites, such as Elance, Guru and Freelancer in the past. Fiverr brought in a refreshing change with its flurry of practical micro tasks like CSS micro bugging, social marketing, resume revising and PowerPoint editing help. The site grew to the top 200 in the world since the beginning of 2013.
Here are some samples of “I will”:
• Will place 40 Delicious, 40 Diigo and 40 StumpleUpon bookmarks for you website/video for $5
• Will write original and effective content up to 500 words for your website for $5
• Will tweet your product, services, or link to my 16,000+ twitter followers for $5
• Will translate any text from 50 to 200 words from English to Spanish and vice versa for $5
• Will draw a cartoon with your messages or sentences for $5
• Will post any message on my Facebook wall of 4,000 friends for $5
• Will convert ANY of your files from one format to another for $5
• Will edit, proofread and provide feedback on any document up to ten pages for $5
• Will audit your website design and usability from a DESIGNERS point of view for $5
• Will make a nice logo design for your business and deliver the LOGO within 3 days for $5
• Will do Performance Testing of your website for $5
• Will teach you how you can Set Up a Database in Excel for $5
• Will edit CSS for you for $5
http://www.Fiverr.com is really easy to use, give it a try. Snippets from the Wall Street Journal: “Although buyers pay $5, sellers receive less than $4, after PayPal payment-processing and Fiverr fees, which is the primary way the site makes money. PayPal is the payment method and posting or finding a gig is free. Fiverr.com, is a site that allows you to buy and sell (business) tasks for $5 and the site is a good match for this economy. Buyers are looking for cheap prices and sellers are often unemployed or underemployed, seeking freelance income. There is a bizarre joy to browsing the sometimes hilarious user-created content on the site.”
There are a lot more sites where you can find inexpensive and professional freelancers for all kind of jobs, also not for $5.00.

Website or Blog Issues? Help is on the Way
Placing sharing buttons, Social Media following buttons, Google+ batches or new page sections on websites or blogs seem to be daunting tasks for non-techies. Sure, there are forums where many questions might be answered – if one has the time and patience to crawl through hundreds of web pages to find the right answer to their problem. And then to implement it, when a month ago the platform changed its design or code … The advice given at forums is free, but often out-dated. Much faster and more economical is it to get some inexpensive help with the custom-creation of your blog or website at Fiverr. For just $5 experts can help to solve problems that overwhelm the average computer user.
We Found the Perfect Help
It started out with my struggle to place buttons for all the page sections of our blog Content-on Demand. For days I searched the internet, trying to find instructions, as the blogging platform we use was not very helpful with instructions, nor are their forums. My basic HTML knowledge didn’t enable me to work on the blogspot platform. And I must admit, I am not very patient, and would rather write ten articles than to deal with one web problem. Well not real problems for a specialist, but for me.
I turned to Fiverr.com where I found help in the past, for example to have our Facebook account unlocked or to have someone creating us a database. Looking for advice or hands-on work with Blogger (Blogspot) platforms I found an amazing techie who helped me with dozens of issues on the websites and blogs that we run: Denis at http://Fiverr.com/Denis555
Great Support for Blogger and WordPress
It was amazing how fast and professional Denis helped us to improve the overall design of the websites / blogs and gave me insider tips how we could improve a couple of things on our sites (for example SEO).
Among many other tasks he:
The list goes on and on… and best of all: each of these tasks were only $5. However, we often add a tip to this amount to show our appreciation for his fast and pleasant service.
Denis offers a lot more:
You have found something interesting on someone else website and you would like to have that on your blog/website but you don’t know how? Ask him, chances are good he can implement it on your site too.
