No, it isn’t a misspelling – it is really spelled “Fiverr.” Fiverr is a popular web site where people offer services they are willing to do for $5. Well, actually they end up with $4 because Fiverr takes a buck as their share.

How Does Garland Use Fiverr? #
When I decided to launch my “Captain Time” web site, I decided I wanted to stand out. So I had a graphic artist on Fiverr draw my face on a superhero body, creating “Captain Time.”
For an extra $5 I had him create a logo at a high resolution so that I could print it on shirts and other items.
I have also used Fiverr for logo design, voiceovers and other simple tasks.
How Does Fiverr Save Time? #
Fiverr is an affordable one stop shop where you can find loads of workers to get simple tasks done quickly for a great rate.
When Shouldn’t I use Fiverr? #
Fiverr is less useful if you need ongoing work such as a virtual assistant who helps you every week with a range of tasks. Fiverr excels at one-offs. I do go back and use the same people sometimes for additional tasks, but if I wanted someone to work in my business over week, I would use sites like oDesk.
