Odd jobs for a Fiverr?
Fiverr is an online marketplace offering tasks and services all beginning at $5. It has millions of services listed (known as Gigs) and can be a great resource for businesses and start ups looking to supplement their internal resources.
There are lots of freelance resources online but fiverr stands out because you can buy micro-jobs that consist of very simple tasks for a fixed $5 fee – which is great for things like copy writing, odd design jobs, new blog articles, SEO tasks and social media marketing.
Since there is no commitment you can “hire” adhoc services based on a sellers feedback and reviews and assemble a team of helpful resources that can bolster your online armada.
One of the most useful tools is – you can see how “busy” a seller is as you can see the number of orders in their que, and use this as part of your decision making process.
Whereas we work with tried and tested partners offering a managed service – our clients have used it successfully to acquire services such as translation and copy writing.
A word of caution though – about 50% of the Gigs offered sell for more than 5$ and we would NEVER suggest you allow third parties to access your website or other confidential information without first considering the consequences and setting up correct access credentials with scope limited to the job at hand.
