Starting a business can be hectic, and incredibly time-consuming. Sometimes underestimated is the cost to hire employees during the startup phase. Starting a blog, for example, could need more than just hosting and essential SEO work, you may need something like Graphic Design to get a good logo or some business advice on where to go to next. Enter: Fiverr. Gigs and Freelance opportunities for as little as $5.
How Does Fiverr Work?? Well…
While Fiverr shouldn’t be written off just because their quality of freelancers isn’t always up to par, you’ll still be able to find experienced graphic designers, SEO experts, and many other professionals since it’s a great place as a side hustle for these professionals. For example, you could:
- $10 Voiceover from a Radio DJ
- $5 Logo Design from an aspiring Artist
- $100 Press Release Broadcasted to 100+ Sources
While you aren’t exactly getting the individual attention that these freelancers have, and in many cases, your order is in a queue for up to 5 days, you’ll find that there is plenty of freelancers willing to do the work.
Like a Fiverr gig? Order premium packages for high quality, or more of the same thing you’ve ordered.
Typically Fiverr charges a $1 service fee, but if you like multiple gigs be sure to Add to Cart and avoid pay for each gig by itself! ($1 can be for multiple gigs if you have a cart full of potential orders)
As mentioned before quality differs on Fiverr, but if you’ve noticed a profile or gig labeled Pro you’ll know that these are premium gigs that will likely charge more, but at the same time you’ll be more likely to be satisfied at the result!
