Trying out Fiverr

Trying out a new beta site: Fiverr.

My profile here:

Basically, it’s a niche $5 service site where someone is willing to do a small task for only $5. You take a $4 cut, and Fiverr takes a $1 cut.

Psychologically speaking and marketing wise, $5 is pretty much the holy grail of prices among products in that price range, fast food mainly (think Subway’s $5 Footlong or Arby’s 5 for 5).

I wish Fiverr all the best of luck. I’m sure they’re already in the green. I personally don’t expect much of a turn out for me using it though. That’s just the realist in me.

UPDATE — Fiverr was actually going well for a while and then it just stopped. I have so much going on, so many avenues of revenue, it just kind of slipped through the cracks and I didn’t think much of it. It’s been about a year and I’m doing some updating of old articles and decided to check it out again. Looks like all my gigs were inactive, whoops!

Well, that explains it. So a note, keep an eye on your gigs every now and then because if they don’t get enough love apparently they go into hibernation, without notice.
