There are still so many jobs to do when it comes to running a successful blog and one of the places that I like to visit is Fiverr.com. Yes there are scammers and spammers there, but you will find these kind of people all over the Internet.For the real outsourcing I use both Elance and Odesk, but sometimes when you need a simple job Fiverr will do.
Here are a few jobs I have purchased recently, some are great, while others are just no good at all.
Get a Video Intro Made
I got sick of having boring videos so I took the plunge and bought a video intro. You can watch the video below to see the intro. Many people are doing this now and even though it has become common, it still looks good.
Here are some more interesting Fivirr Gigs:
Buy a Level two Yahoo Answers Account
Hmm well this could be a bit on the dark side but I suppose you can buy the accounts and turn it into something decent. I personally have spent years building up my Yahoo! accounts but I probably would have taken this option if it was available when I started out.
Get Your PDF submitted
I actually tried this one and although it did the job, I still felt that it was a little bit spammy. Unfortunately I have a hard time letting a job go unless it is done properly. Yes the PDFs were submitted to various websites but under someone else’s account who I do not know.
High PR Backlinks
Yes I bought this one too! But I thought the links were a bit spammy because again, they were done by someone else, and not to my standard. If you are wondering if these links will work or not, the answer is yes, but only for a very short term. The only reason I bought these is for some variety in my link building.
A funny lyric
I ordered a funny, possibly saucy, possibly clean, limerick, poem or rap for $5 and this is what I got.
At 7 am each morning
When your alarm screams like a banshee
Do you ever think
“Crappy day jobs stink
I want to sleep til three.”
And when you’re stuck in traffic
Watching pigeons limp faster than you
Do you think God Dammit
I’ll tell my boss to rammit
And stick his performance review
And when lunchtime’s are just 30 minutes
From Twelve Thirty to One O’Clock
Do fast food French fries
Quadruple your thighs
And give you liver spots?
And when some pimple faced colleague
In the next cubicle
Blasts Miley Cyrus
Do you wish her a virus
And contemplate sleeping pills
Well then Mitz has all the answers
For escaping work drudgery
Avoiding almost certain suicide
Relaxing by the poolside
And working from home you see
Your social skills may well diminish
And appearance could suffer as well
You might grow unruly thick hair
That may sprout everywhere
And you won’t be dressed like other office personnel
But at least you will have the freedom
To only work when you choose
Never rush your morning coffee
Forget all appointments completely
Or have sex all afternoon
But beware of addictive distractions
Ban Facebook now you’ve retired
Don’t even look at Twitter
Avoid friends on Flickr
But at least chatting online won’t get you fired
So embrace creating your destiny
Just careful to work normal hours
Because being nocturnal
Can make life infernal
And must not forget to shower
And though your partner may tire
Of seeing your face all the time
It’s best to be happy
So stop feeling crappy
And grab life and get ready to shine.
For $5 what do you get? This is pretty amazing. After getting this I had some great ideas for more poems I could get. For example, I want to get one from my friends 40th birthday and maybe one for my daughter’s birthday. Unfortunately this user does not exist any longer, but I’m sure there are others out there that do a similar thing. Of course this is got nothing to do with my business, but I just thought it was cheap for five dollars.
Not sure if this seller is still doing this gig? http://fiverr.com/penash
