Fiverr - services for 5 dollars

I was recently introduced to, a website where people offer their services for only $5.00.  What services you ask?  Almost anything you can imagine (within expected business and Internet services).

I was directed to to find someone who could create several backlinks for a project.  Backlinks take people from someone else on the Internet to your webpage.  However, once I started exploring the website I was intrigued. 

What is Fiverr? offers services in six different areas, listed below along with the subcategories of services.  Each basic service, referred to as a "gig," costs $5.00.  Each offer also includes enhancements, called "gig extras."  Gig extras cost additional money.

How Fiverr works

Each purveyor of services on has a webpage with all of the various gigs that are available.  You can search by category of gig (see list above) or, once you have viewed information about a gig, see what other gigs a Fiverr is offering.  The average number of days to complete and the number of order in queue are listed for each gig.

One category of gigs that I found interesting are the Online Marketing and Video.  There are many Fiverrs who offer to make a video promoting products or providing a fake product testimonial.

My promotional video

I decided to try out an offer for a 50-word (about second) promotional video.  After reviewing various offers for a promotional video, I selected Mike Porter.  Mike promised to record a video up to 50 words against a green screen, so that a background could easily be added later.  I paid $5.00, and sent him the following script: is a blog website created by Douglas G Pratt to help you "become more."

You will find posts on

> technology and innovation,
> creativity and brainstorming,
> perspective.
> learning and knowledge, and
> presentation and communication

When you visit be sure to subscribe by e-mail.

Four days later, Mike sent the video.  I added a background and decided to shorten the video.

I will definitely be using from time to time to take advantage of different services.
