Fiverr: outsource these 10 simple business tasks for $5

Fiverr is an easy, cost-effective way to outsource many simple tasks from basic marketing tasks to mailers to translation services.



Getting stuff done with Fiverr

Fiverr (which stands for fiver, because almost every task costs $5), is a place for people to share things they are willing to do for $5 from the absolutely bizarre to social marketing. Members can order and pay through the service and Fiverr will guide you through the rest of the steps.

The Fiverr service is free, but it if you sell your services, it takes one dollar from the five you charge for a fee. The service also makes use of Facebook and Twitter to feature available gig, getting your ads to a broader audience.

And if you are looking for a service, there are multiple options available to help your business grow at a very reasonable rate. Each person offering a service is reviewed, so make sure to check the reviews before you hire someone.

Some of the services available to your business include:

YouTube transcriptions, because no one wants to watch an entire YouTube video, okay, we do, but sometimes you need the text to go along with it and transcribing a 30 minute video can take hours. Why not hire it out on Fiverr for a mere $5? (Check gig extras if you need more time.)

Video Testimonials instead of spending time and money hunting down people to record a testimonial for your product, you can hire someone on Fiverr to do it for you. This could be what makes or breaks you in the beginning. And, keeping your costs low is always important. And once you get the first video testimonial, it will encourage other people to send some your way as well.

Product or service reviews if you do not need a video testimonial, you can still get a product or service text review, quickly, efficiently and very cost effective.

Sending marketing materials so you can get back to what you do best.

Creating Logos or marketing material if you need flyers, postcards, Tweets, Facebook posts, or anything in between, you can find someone to do it on Fiverr.

Blog Posting need a blog post about a product or service? Just go over to Fiverr and you will find people ready and waiting to do one or multiple postings for $5.

Sending follow-up messages many times we have lists of hundreds of prospective clients that need to be contacted in a timely manner, Fiverr can help with this. There are plenty of people listing their services to take care of this very thing.

Business coaching if you have a particularly difficult problem, many people are offering business coaching. Some of these people are veteran business owners who can offer you their years of expertise for a small fee. Also, if you are just beginning and want someone to run ideas by, this can also be a useful service.

Virtual assistants People are offering anywhere from one hour to three hours of virtual assistant work for a mere $5. This could include anything from research to WordPress publishing, phone calls to article writing, and data entry to Excel documents. Each person has a different range of services, but for the price, it is hard to go wrong.

Translation services if you need a document, web site, blog post, or video translated, there are a multitude of people offering this service on Fiverr for only $5.

While in many cases, you get what you pay for and you aren’t necessarily getting an expert, for menial tasks and simple to do items, $5 is a cheap way to get stuff done.
