Fiverr is that cool freelancing website where buyers can purchase nearly anything imaginable for only 5 Bucks. Since its arrival on the scene nearly 2 years ago, its creators, Micha Kaufman and Shai Wininger, have seen over 2 million different jobs being offered from a wide variety of very interesting freelancers.
Who knew that Fiver visitors could learn how to get rock hard abs, complete with a diet plan and workout routine for only $5! Or how about hiring someone to advertise a website or business by someone who is dressed like a scary clown from a Steven King novel? Then there is the crazy man who will juggle chainsaws and knives while making a 20-minute commercial about the buyer’s online blog site. Buyers get all of these innovative freelancing jobs for only 5 Bucks.
Of course, there are also thousands upon thousands of “normal” freelancing services, as well. Fiverr has sellers who can design a brand new company logo, fix a glitch on any website, or even professionally write blogs and articles online. Everything under the sun is for sale on Fiverr.
Each individual gig offer is rated according to the number of orders previously purchased and the favorability ratings provided by each client. Buyers are encouraged to leave a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down”, complete with their own message about the seller. Buyers can say anything that they like, good or bad, as long as no profanity is used. This protects each potential new customer from perhaps making a bad purchase while also making the Fiverr site a whole lot of fun to read.
