Entry #2: Can You Spare a Fiverr?



As a Small Business Owner who wears many hats, I’m always looking for low-cost ways to complete the hundreds of small tasks that can eat up my time.

And then I found http://fiverr.com.

This site has made my life SO much easier and it’s saved me THOUSANDS of dollars—and God knows how many hours of frustration.

On Fiverr, you create job postings that are visible to a community of users—and every job pays $5.  I’ve paid different members to create menus, edit photos, help with SEO, develop SEO campaigns, even link SEO campaigns and keywords to my site—all things that would have cost me more money and a lot more time to do myself.

There are a lot of silly things one can pay someone to do on Fiverr, but there are tons of specific professional job categories and choices that can help a Small Business Owner crowd-source solutions to everyday problems at a price that won’t strain the bottom line.

I HIGHLY recommend it!
