If you are internet entrepreneur, you might know the feeling when you need kick start a task, service or even a bigger project and you do not have the skills, you know what you want to do but you can’t do it yourself or it will take too long and you will not ahve time to focus on other aspects of your business.
I use freelance services for short-term projects and tasks that are time consuming for me and I need to get it done in a decent price.
The hard part when hiring a freelancer is to describe your needs, be clear, explain in details how you wish the tak done and how you wish to get it delivered. I suggest creating templates for frequantely needed projects like products descriptions, Press release, etc. This second issue when outsourcing projects and tasks is to find and collect resources. there is a lot of grabage out there, many writers that do not know how to write and a lot of other tricks and risks that you need to avoid.
Fiverr is a marketplace for $5 tasks, also known as gigs. You can sell and buy tasks and services such as WordPress installation, content writing, Facebook and Twitter followers, video, banners or for any other small tasks that people are willing to do for $5 (“i will be your Facebook girlfriend for a week…”) and can save you time and resources.
Anyone can create a gig for small service, and visitors can order gigs as well. The gig prices are fixed at $5. Buyers can order gigs and are required to pay for the gig in advance. if you sell a service, Fiverr takes $1 off of the $5 fee. You can cancel orders if the seller does not deliver on time and if your task will be completed to your standards, you are only shelling out $5 for the task, so it’s not a total loss if the gig falls through or isn’t done as expected. Fiverr recently added a way to collect favorite gigs into groups,it makes the search for tasks much more effective.
