  1. Ooh I had this horse video made for my best friend\'s birthday. Was a big hit as she loves horses! Really glad I got it done. Was as easy as searching horse video - I couldn\'t believe it when there was a gig there to do exactly what I wanted! Here\'s the link if that\'s OK -http://lifechangingyear.com/bffs-birthday-got-horse-video/

  2. I had my book cover designed on fiverr. Here's the link to the kindle book: http://www.amazon.com/Tips-Sophisticated-Marketer-Payoff-Investment-ebook/dp/B007G480J6/

  3. I've used Fiverr several times to distribute press releases. The most recent on that did well was to promote a blog post, which in turn promoted one of our member authors and our annual contest - http://www.webwire.com/ViewPressRel.asp?aId=184859#.U9JiVPldWSo

  4. Lynn, I get a lot of things done at Fiverr. I have even found a few excellent writers there. Two simple Fiverr projects I had done were for videos. This one shows some of my favorite quotations about creativity: http://www.idealady.com/creativity-quotes/

    And this one features Professor Puppet presenting my article about conquering the fear of public speaking: http://www.idealady.com/conquer-fear-public-speaking/ This one actually cost $15, because of the length. There are gigs that end up costing more than $5, but they can definitely be worth it.

    I love Fiverr!

  5. Had the video here done on Fiverr:

    http://www.SocialLeadsPro.com

    I edited it to ad a zombie sign but the rest I got for $5 or maybe a little more with one or two Gig Extras. Still a lot cheaper than anywhere else.

  6. Oh Yeah! Fiverr has been my "Secret Weapon" for some time now!

    I had my Lead Magnet free report done (http://blogboldly.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Free_Report_5.pdf) It was two Fiverr gigs. One for the graphic and another to convert it to pdf and make the links!

    Also, the 1st two videos on this page (BlogBoldly.com/starting-an-online-business) were Fiverr gigs. Each of them took 5 gigs so they were $25 a piece but anywhere else and they would have bee $100.+ anywhere else.

  7. I LOVE me some Fiverr, Lynn! I just looked it up and I have spent over $300 on Fiverr this year but received over $1200 in value! Here is my virtual assistant: imuthoni and my eBook designer - he does the inside pages of your PDF eBook with clickable links! edesign9Sue

  8. I've used Fiverr for book covers and movie intros. You can see one intro I use on YouTube videos at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86l3e31HqBw&list=UUsElteCfJpFqkaIeRxdTxEQ

  10. Whoops! Here's the link, sorry about that, Lynn. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86l3e31HqBw&list=UUsElteCfJpFqkaIeRxdTxEQ

  11. Yes, in fact I had an order finished on Wednesday night. I used them previously. I think with this last order I have hit a gold mine!!!! I am tweaking my site to get rid of some unwanted disadvantages from the theme, and added sidebar elements so that any ad is in line with the content. (still in process). Removing anything that looks too obviously just for advertising, and mixing it up.

  12. Hi Lynn,
    I had my opt in PDF book cover designed at fiver. He did a great job and used by logo too. You can see it on my sidebar at http://zebramusic.com

  13. You may have to weed out a few duds to find a good designer! I did and got this Kindle cover by a clever gal on Fiverr . The shortlink to the my Detox Book is http://amzn.com/B008804PF0 Some of the best people on Fiverr soon move on once they have made a name for themselves. They are using fiverr as lead generation :-)

  14. There's a guy will yell at you for 30 seconds. That has to come in handy somehow.

  15. Lynn, thanks for this post. But, I have been using fiverr since 2011 , it is not that happening now, as it used to be. Still one should try at least once, instead of choosing top rated seller, I would always prefer new seller if I am really pressing for time.

  17. What a great request here for input, Lynn. I will definitely come back to see examples of what other people have had done. I've used Fiverr for headers. A couple of years ago I had inserts put in a video. I'm not currently doing the program AND I am inspired by the video :) - on http://throughandfromthelens.com/ Scroll halfway through the short video to see photo inserts. Something I might do again in the future.

  18. I've used Fiverr from both sides - selling gigs and buying gigs.
    My profile page on the site: http://www.fiverr.com/retta719

    From both perspectives, I like the idea of small jobs and single tasks. As a buyer, sometimes you just need one aspect of something done and Fiverr is great for that. As a service provider, sometimes it's nice to fill gaps or to just work on a small project between all the other stuff that you do.

  19. I love fiverr and have used it for over 150 gigs. One of my favorites is for transcribing work and I found a Fiverr provider (http://www.fiverr.com/clowdine) that does such excellent work. It really helps me for writing blog posts about audio content that I have and like to share with my readers.

  20. My new header is from 2 Fiverr gigs. First was the illustration on the right, and the second was the actual header. http://cubscoutideas.com/

  21. I had my logo done at Fiverr and was pleased with the service. The seller was happy to make several amendments until I was completely satisfied. I'd definitely use them again. You can check out the logo on my website.

  24. Lynn I just LOVE fiverr! I recommend it to all of my clients and have recently used it for a new niche website header to get my website up and running quickly without huge expense. You can take a look at it here: http://propertyinvestingsupport.com/. Being careful about which providers you use and clear on instructions are key to getting the results as close to what you are after for sure.
