Everybody’s talking about Fiverr.com, a website where people tell you what they’re willing to do for $5.
If you have a slim budget for publicity, this site could be perfect for you.
Among the wacky things people say they’re willing to do (“I’ll write your name in the foam on top of my cappuccino and send you a photo of it”), you’ll find people willing to do mini-projects like write a killer headline for an article you’ve written, draw an illustration that you can use to accompany a press release, or design a logo.
If you needed a logo, you could find five people on that site, give them all the same assignment for $5 each, and then choose the best logo.
You’d spend only $25—a steal.
Tom Antion, an Internet marketer and one of my mentors, says he uses this site frequently when he needs logos created for new websites he’s created, and has had great results.
Fiverr’s disadvantage is that is because the price is so cheap, you can’t ask for a refund if you don’t like the work, and you can’t carry on a conversation with the person doing your project. So even though you’re taking a chance, the results could really pay off.
Fiverr.com is one of the valuable publicity resources I’ll be sharing on Monday when I host the webinar, “60 Ideas in 60 Minutes: Free (or Practically Free) Tips, Tricks, Tools & Tutorials for Publicity & Social Media.”
It’s a compilation of the best tools, mostly freebies, that I’ve been sharing the last several months at my blog, social media sites, in articles and elsewhere.
The call is at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. If you can’t make it, sign up anyway because I’ll send you the link for the video replay and the handout that lists all 60 ideas.
Register here, and check out the special bonus you’ll get the day of the call.
