The other day, I hear about this website called Fiverr. I guess it was launched a year ago but I just heard about it now. It’s an online marketplace for people selling products and services. I was intrigued for a few reasons.
First of all, because I love a bargain. My favorite price is FREE but 5 bucks is pretty darn good, too.
Second, I’m trying to figure out what I can offer for 5 bucks. You know I’m always looking to make some extra cash as long as it’s not illegal or immoral. Well, as long as it's not illegal. I mean, c’mon, who looks good in this??
Although the sandals do look like a comfy pair I found at Walgreen’s for around 5 bucks! Lose the socks, sweetheart.
Maybe if they let me wear this, a life of crime wouldn't seem so...so...unfashionable.
Where was I??
Oh, right, Fiverr.
So it's really interesting (ridiculous) to see what some people are offering for 5 bucks. The highest rated ones are the people who say they will increase your Facebook "likes" or post your website on their Twitter or Facebook page with their gazillion followers. The website takes a dollar of your proceeds so technically, you're doing stuff for Fourrrr instead of a Fiverr.
Here are some of my favorites:
"I will sing Happy Birthday in Welsh, wearing only a thong and wooly hat"
"I will record your phone greeting in the voice of Yoda"
"I will write your text on a plate using organic cinnamon"
"I will record an eye catching video with your message dressed as a sexy schoolgirl, naughty secretary or a hot vampire"
"I will write you message on my pecs and abs"
"I will Skype with you for ten minutes as a silly monster puppet"
"I will provide insightful advice about anything"
I will count BIG money and shout your name or site
166 people have ordered this! WTF??
What would YOU do for $5.00??
