Fiverr=Amazeballs

by Tom Tenney

I had only just begun my reading on barter economies when my girlfriend serendipitously IM’d me the URL to fiverr which she called an “amazeballs idea.”    The concept is a webified version of “what would you do for a dollar?”  and allows people to post what they would do (legally) for five dollars.  Just a few examples:

I will sleep talk your website, product name or slogan on VIDEO for $5″

“I will use my deep voice to sing like Johnny Cash anything you desire while playing my acoustic guitar… for $5”

“I will edit your 30 minute podcast for $5”

I think this is fantastic… it’s kind of like a micro Elance, where there are no limits to the ridiculousness of the tasks.  Also, this is potentially a great way to get great, unique marketing material.  I have this idea that I want to order one per day leading up to the RE/Mixed Media Festival on October 22nd – and tweet the results each day.   I’ll keep you posted on how that goes (I’ve already ordered the sleeptalking video…)

  1. LOL!! I love the word amazeballs!! There are very few people who use it =) Fiverr has been great to me so far. I’d like to see more DIYers and handmade crafty peeps on there though. It seems like it is flooded with get rich quick types… I had an Etsy shop and late last year I put my supplies in storage for a bit and didn’t want my twitter accounts to get stale, so I thought of ways to monetize them. Fiverr it is!!

  2. Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks

    • It can be incredible how quite a few men and women do not usndrntaed this. Thank you for this incredibly informative write-up, and I appear forward to seeing much more inside the close to long term!
