Hey 3.5 readers.
Your old pal BQB here.
Fiverr. What a trip.
I was mildly curious about it last week so I checked it out and became instantly hooked.
The gist of the site is that it is a massive collection of people willing to do all sorts of things for $5. (Get your mind out of the gutter). I know hiring someone to do THAT for $5 seems like a bargain but the kind of THAT you’d get for $5 a) isn’t worth it and b) is going to leave you itchy and that’s the best case scenario. Also, the site doesn’t allow for THAT.
There are all sorts of services you can buy for your blog and it’s all very cheap. For the most part, “gigs” as they are called, start at five bucks. Usually, you can get something decent for a “fiver” but there are all sorts of add-ons to enhance your service. Adding these can get costly so it’s up to you and what you can afford.
All I know is I got four videos for a pretty cheap price. They’re cool, they help me advertise, they provide me with a little more legitimacy etc.
Unfortunately, I’ve spent all the fivers I can afford for awhile, but I’ll dip my toe back into the Fiverr water when I can afford to. Ultimately, using this site hasn’t led me to getting more than 3.5 readers, but it has been good for the soul. I’ve always wanted to work in TV. Yes, I realize this is nowhere near working in TV, but it’s a lot of fun to write a script, write some directions, and then like a day later you’ve got a fun video based on your ideas.
In conclusion, here’s the cue card girl reminding you to check out my fine website:
