The recession has lots of people willing to offer up their services and expertise for a steal, and a new site is taking full advantage of that! Fiverr.com is a place where people share the (legal) things they're willing to do for $5.
Think Craiglist for the entrepreneurial-minded.
Anyone can go on and auction off the services they are willing to perform, from bizarre advertising schemes ("I will write your company's name on my bicep for $5) to artistic endeavors ("I will make an album cover for your band") to educational advice ("I will review your college application") or what services they are seeking ("Walk my dog"). Fiverr monitors the "gigs" and once the are approved and posted the transactions begin via PayPal. No negotiations. Everything is $5. No more. No less.
As long as the services stay legal, seems like a great idea to FF!
Hey, college kids: looking to make a few extra beer bucks? We found the site for you!
