Keeping It Simple

Have you ever heard of a website called It’s a site where people post what they will do for $5, and to me, this idea is simply brilliant. When I first heard about this, I was like, huh? What people will do for $5? I felt the need to check it out instantly. What a cool way for people to post some talents or services they offer in their free time to make some extra cash. If they have a bunch of positive feedback from past customers, it couldn’t hurt to try out one of interest to see if it’s beneficial. Some people’s posts are just plain ridiculous or comical, but other’s are actually useful.

I did a little more research and found that this site has a growing buzz online. I can see this being useful for folks looking for some business growth strategies at the very early stages of starting a business. Some of the services listed could also offer a low cost opportunity for your product and development needs when it comes to logo design options, or by buying some $5 advertising to help get the word out about your company or product. This type of simple approach is more proof that implementing a creative idea alongside an easy to use business model, could be the recipe for a thriving online company. I didn’t see any notice of Fiverr raising any venture funding as of yet, but I’d say it’s only a matter of time.
