Fiverr is one of the newer styles of freelance service websites where independent contractors can sell their services for $5 or less, plus it is one of the new business ideas for 2013. This is a great option for people who prefer to take on smaller jobs or do work that requires minimal skills.
Furthermore, some entrepreneurs are using this networking system to reach out and connect with clients for potentially larger projects and long term work.
You see, people who visit Fiverr to hire workers may need to outsource work month after month and simply want to test drive a few potential hires prior to choosing who they will use. This way they have very little time and money invested in the hiring procedure but can efficiently find good partners to work with.
On the flip side, if you have a service to offer people and don’t want to pay for advertising, Fiverr is a perfect place to find potential clients (ready to hire) without having to pay for advertising. Genius!
Therefore, don’t write off Fiverr just because you want to make more money than $5. There is plenty of money to be made through this resource. Browse through current listings to see how other people are already using it to get some ideas for your own business.
Alternatively, Fiverr can be a great tool for doing work time to time, rather than on an ongoing basis. For example, if you prefer to work seasonally or when you happen to have some spare time during the week, you can schedule your work projects accordingly.
