I have worked with online freelancers since 2007, buying their services via various forums, escrow services and sites. I have followed, and lived with, the evolution of sites like freelancer.com and odesk. Never before have buying services online been so easy as it is today.
The latest mania is buying extraordinary cheap services on fiverr.com. A site where everything has the same price; 5 dollars. You can get anything from “quality” backlinks for your SEO pleasure to a guy peeing your name in the snow. Fiverr.com is not only aimed at professionals like me (buying php-code, PSDs, wordpress themes, content and hiring virtual assistants) but also aimed at regular people who just want to buy something fun. This is something new in the online service sector. And that is what makes the site so fun.
Being able to quickly buy services online opens up oppurtunities never before known to man. This blog is about exploring those oppurtunities, what can one create using only cheap freelancers online? How can we collaborate online to create new and wonderful things together? Are the possibilities real and endless or am I just imagining things?
The mission of Fivver of the Day:
Every day I will buy and rate one gigg from fiverr.com. The giggs could be anything. It could be giggs to help develop this blog, promote it and make me famous. It could also be giggs aimed at providing me, and me alone, amusement. In other words; anything goes (and the giggs will probably not cure cancer or bring about world peace).
I will try to use fiverr giggs as much as possible to manage and develop this project. I have a day job (managing IT-outsourcing for Swedish companies) so my time is limited. Thus, the success or failure of this project is entirely in the hands of the fiverr community.
I hope you will enjoy this site.
