Why Invest in the Skills of a $5 Entrepreneur on Fiverr

Would you really trust a person that is willing to work for five dollars? What could you possibly get for $5 that would be of value to me or anyone else for that matter? After years of questioning the validity of the popular website, Fiverr, I finally decided to take a chance. I gambled away a $5 investment for the sake of curiosity. So, here's what $5 got me on Fiverr.

"Fiverr® is the world's largest marketplace for services starting at $5. A service offered on Fiverr is called a Gig®. Gigs on Fiverr are offered for a fixed, base price of $5 (also referred to as one Fiverr). Whenever you see 'I will _for $5", it means the seller is offering a Gig for the fixed price of $5."

My reason for actually taking the time stemmed from the advice of Matt Cherry, Founder and CEO of iBlog Magazine. While attending the Niche Parent Conference, his words of wisdom were to use better time management techniques by not doing those tasks that you find menial or do not have the tool set to complete professionally and successfully. I would have eventually figured out how to do my own whiteboard animation, however I honestly just don't have the time to spare but I did have a fiver to spend.

The process for signing up to Fiverr is pretty run-of-the-mill and it is free. Only registered users may participate in the buying and selling of gigs on Fiverr.

(Please NoteThis referral program is for a limited time only, and we may withdraw or suspend this referral program (in whole or in part) at any time. The requirements and incentives are also subject to change at any time.)

Take some time to get familiar and search the homepage, category or subcategory pages to find a Fiverr gig you are interested in purchasing. All of the Fiverr gigs initially are priced at $5.00, some gigs contain additional services, which can be added on to your purchase. Remember to research any reviews from previous customers as there is the potential risk of taking a gamble involved.  The success of the transaction is based primarily on written communication as opposed to verbal descriptions.

Buyers pay Fiverr for any gig orders in advance of receiving services. For each of the $5 gigs that you sell and successfully deliver to your customer, Fiverr accredits your account with a $4.00 revenue. Fiverr accredits sellers individually as an order is completed. Visit Fiverr's  Terms of Service for additional information regarding Buyer and Seller transactions.

I have to say that I am satisfied with my Fiverr experience. I am honestly fearful that the power of the almighty $5 bill may become overwhelmingly powerful as I outsource freely to my own personal business staff of $5 Fiverr entrepreneurs.
