Have you heard about Fiverr?
I’ve heard about it, but never tried it before.
While I am learning more about building my WordPress site, living my life, taking care of my family, building a business, going to educational seminars, masterminds, and all that an entrepreneurial life entails. I, like most of you, find I don’t have time to do it all.
There comes a time when one has to outsource things. Instead of spending hours on something that I am not an expert in, I decided to outsource it.
Thus I thought it was time to give Fiverr a try and then share my experience with you.
Fiverr is a site where people will do something for you for only $5! Yes, only $5! It’s amazing what is offered on this site, some of which is strange and entertaining.
I chose to go for a header for Social Media Cupcakes. I simply typed in “WordPress Header” in the search area. Then I looked over the offers and their samples of previous work. I also took into consideration their reviews, if they had any.
I took that leap of faith and sent out a request. I was taken to a Paypal link where I paid my $5. Then it let’s you know that there is some additional information needed to complete the project. I sent a description of the colors I wanted in my header, my logo, and a link to this blog to give them an idea of what it’s about.
It took two days, but I received a header. It was nothing like I had requested. No problem, I sent a message back and asked for a revision. What came back is what you see as my new header above.
Note: There is a limit to how many times you can get a project redone. It is only $5 after all.
The seller sent me a jpg file and PSD file. He even came to look at my site to make sure it was working well. It wasn’t. So he sent me a message and told me what to do. WHOLA! Done and only for $5!!
I tried a second job, but the seller did not provide the requested product. Fiverr sent me a message that it had been days with no response from the seller. They gave me an option to cancel my request at that time. Thus, no money was lost on my part.
One of my friends recently used Fiverr and received a 17 page power point presentation. She was THRILLED!
So my advice to you is, give it a try, you have nothing to loose. Think of the time and money you are going to save!
Over all, I think Fiverr is one SWEET deal!!
P.S. The person I used for my header is led_nrgdesign on Fiverr.
