Fiverr: What Can You Get for $5?

What can you get for $5? You can get a Grande Cappuccino at Starbucks, five items at the Dollar Store, two dozen eggs, a gallon of milk (non-organic) or about 1 1/2 gallons of gasoline.

Or you could get pretty much anything you can find at Fiverr, a website where nearly everything is $5. Think of Fiverr as a combination of eBay and a Dollar Store for the Internet.

Sample Fiverr offerings include gifts, videos, writing, advertising, fun and bizarre items, and advice ranging from business, technology and life decisions.

Purchase items, such as a hand-made Angry Bird ornament (your favorite Angry Bird character, with or without a Santa hat) or a personalized laminated bookmark with a person’s name written in calligraphy. Angry Bird ornament or Bookmark

Need your message spread to the world but don’t have a large Twitter or Facebook following? For $5 you can get your message across to other’s large Twitter or Facebook following.

If you need help with your website, Fiverr is filled with experts on WordPress and other website services. You don’t have to be an expert in coding or relentlessly bug your friend who is an expert. Hire someone who has the experience and can help you out for $5.

With Fiverr you can search specific items or from within categories such as Technology, Gifts, Travel, Writing, etc. You will be shown a list of the offers, as well as the seller’s name and the flag of the country where they are from (hover your cursor over the flag if you don’t recognize which country the flag represents). You can sort the results by Popularity, Rating, New and Express Gigs (if you need the results quickly).

As with eBay, you should buy from sellers with a lot of positive ratings. The higher the rating of the seller, the higher the chance you will be a satisfied customer.

You should also pay attention to the timing of the gig. Some gigs are promised in three days, other in a shorter time.

To purchase an item you need a PayPal account or you can use the payment service Fiverr provides. I used PayPal.

My Fiverr Experience

Over the past few weeks, I have been busy testing Fiverr to check out the services Fiverr sellers offer. I wanted to purchase gigs related to this site so you could see the results first-hand. I didn’t inform any of the sellers that I was going to be writing a review of their services.

New Logo

My first purchase was a new logo from a seller named Reand. Here is a comparison of the old logo versus the new one created by him:

vs.

Reand from Indonesia went above and beyond my request, providing me with four logos to choose from, based upon my specifications. I chose my favorite from the four he sent to me and started using it right away. His gig isn’t currently available because he is so busy fulfilling other gigs, but may be available in the future. You can see it here: Reand on Fiverr.

Facebook Like Box

Next I wanted to add a Like My Facebook Fan Page box in my sidebar. For that I took a deep breath because the gig involved giving someone Adminstrative privileges to my blog, meaning they could pretty much do whatever they wanted to the site. I purchased a gig from Don Hopkin, a wonderful Fiverr seller who completed the task in under an hour from when I ordered it. You can see it on my sidebar (feel free to click Like to see how it works!).

New Theme

I hired Hopkin again a few days later to help me fix an issue I was having with this new theme that I am launching today (more on the new theme below). He figured out what to do and solved the problem I was having (the sidebar for this new theme was appearing at the bottom of the page). I also wanted him to install the new Wonder of Tech logo at the top of the page but he ran out of time fixing the sidebar issue and confessed that he wasn’t sure how to proceed because the image wasn’t a good fit for the theme I had chosen.

I next tried to hire two other sellers to put my logo image at the top of this theme. One Fiverr seller had zero ratings, but I took a chance anyway. I never heard back from him, so after the gig expired, I requested it be cancelled. The next Fiverr seller I tried was highly rated. He cancelled the order right away as he confessed he didn’t know how to fix the issue. I received a credit back from Fiverr for these two jobs.

The third time proved to be the charm. I hired a very highly rated Fiverr seller named seo_by_pro for the gig:

I will modify your wordpress blog/website as per your needs for $5

He asks that buyers contact him ahead of time, which I did. I asked for help putting the header at the top of the new theme and with changing the standard font size to a larger size. He replied immediately with a quote of $15. This was expensive by Fiverr standards, though not by Real World standards, so I accepted.

Seo_by_pro was a dream to work with. He was so quick in fixing the issue that I didn’t have a chance to tell him not to launch the new theme yet. (Some of you got a sneak peek of the theme on Thursday when he fixed it and activated it.)

After I had approved the purchase and given him a glowing review, I realized I had a few issues still. The font wasn’t as large as I had wanted (though he had changed it to exactly the size I had requested) and my header didn’t show up for me when I was logged in as an Administrator. I had already marked the job as Finished so he was under no obligation to respond, but he fixed these issues immediately. Great communication and service.

Another Point of View

I’m not the only one who is a satisfied Fiverr customer. Jens Berget of Sly Marketing and guest author at The Wonder of Tech (see, The 10 Real Reasons Why I Love Spotify) has used Fiverr extensively. I asked him for his thoughts on the site to get another opinion about the services. Jens responded:

  • I truly am rubbish at design, and my technical skills are very limited. This means that whenever I want something done when it comes to design or to fix some technical issues, I need to hire people to help me. The only place I keep looking for people to hire is through Fiverr. It’s not because it’s cheap ($5), but it’s mostly because it’s easy and fast to find brilliant people. My latest project was to create an ecover for my Marketing Made Simple ebook.

  • I’m very satisfied with the results. A few weeks ago, I had some issues with my webhost and my blog was really slow, so I used Fiverr to find an amazing guy who helped me to speed up my blog. I have also recently used Fiverr to find a very talented woman that helped me create a stunning intro to my videos. It goes without saying, but I highly recommend Fiverr to all my friends.

Bottom Line

If you need help with your website, want to buy a whimsical gift, want to send a creative message or need advice, check out Fiverr today!

The New Theme!

Today I am launching a new theme for The Wonder of Tech, designed to give you, the reader, a richer experience. The theme is Huex by WP Now and allows you to pick your favorite color for this blog. The default color is my choice, but by clicking one of the colored boxes at the top of the blog, you can change the color to suit your tastes (you may have to refresh the page for the new color to apply).

Smilies also work with this theme so you can enhance your comments with all sorts of icons to communicate your mood.

I hope you enjoy the new theme and many thanks to Fiverr sellers Don Hopkin and Syed who made this theme launch possible!

    I’ve used Fiverr a lot myself Carolyn and although you will occasionally get someone who won’t do the work, they are really great about refunding you the money.

    I like the look of your logo, the header and the theme. Really great job. As long as you are thrilled with it, that’s all that really matters right. But I do love the look, it’s something a little different. Plus I love this snow you have falling at the moment. Make is really seem like Christmas.

    Great job Carolyn and I’m sure that these people you worked with really appreciate you giving them a good review.

    Enjoy your week!

      Hi Adrienne, Thanks, I’m so glad you like the new theme! But I respectfully disagree with you. I think it’s more important that my readers like the theme than whether or not I do. But I wouldn’t have changed to this theme if I didn’t!

      You’re right, the sellers don’t always come through. But I was very impressed with the ones who did come through and how quickly they responded.

      What did you get from Fiverr, Adrienne?

      Glad you like the snow. That’s not part of the theme. It’s a free plug in called Let It Snow you could put on your blog too. :-)

        So did I miss the post where you asked your readers what kind of theme we wanted you to change to? I personally think you are the one who has to be happy with it. Now some of the things people may put on their blog can be distracting and those things can be removed but the theme itself I believe has to be your choice. Again, that’s just my opinion but I like the new look.

        Do you remember my other header? It was created at Fiverr. I also had my eBook cover created there that I used as my first free opt-in along with a few more. I’ve purchased some PLR reports there from the guy who created my eBook covers. Overall I was very pleased with their work. I haven’t had anything done there recently but I always recommend people using that site because there are some very talented people there.

        Thanks for letting me know about the plug-in. That’s just too fun!

          Good point, Adrienne. I didn’t poll my readers, I guess that’s what I’m doing now by implementing this theme. If readers hate it, I will move onto a new theme (after wiping the tears from my eyes). So either my readers love this new theme or are too polite to say otherwise.

          Yes, I do remember that other header from your blog, loved it! I’m glad you have been satisfied with your Fiverr purchases. You clearly have received excellent value for your money there!

    Love the info about Fiverr!

    I had read a few posts earlier about it, but never in so much of detail- I guess it is wonderful for the price!

    I love the new look of your blog and I did notice this a few days back as well. I love playing with the various colors in the box on the right side corner- it sure gives the blog more of a variety :)

    And yes the header is looking nice and so is the falling snow, which I had also put up on my blog a few days back. I guess it gives us the feel of Christmas right away.

    Thanks for sharing a wonderful post once again :)

      Hi Harleena, Yes, you were one of the lucky Wonder of Tech readers who got a sneak preview of the new theme. I’m very happy you like it.

      I saw the snow on your blog when I visited and liked it a lot. It’s a fun way to be festive for the season!

      As with eBay, if you find a fantastic seller on Fiverr, you will have a great experience. I have been very impressed with the sellers who delivered their services quickly with good communication. Jens has had wonderful experiences as well. I consider Fiverr a find, which is why I wanted to share it with Wonder of Tech readers!

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your awesome comment, Harleena. :-)

  3. Ruth - The Freelance Writing Blog says

    I had heard of Fiverr before and checked it out a bit, but never hired anyone to do anything. It just seems amazing to me that people will take these jobs for $5. Unless it is taking them less than 5 or 10 minutes to complete, it’s really quite shocking! But, considering how wonderful your theme looks and your success stories, I think I will give it a try!

    • says

      Hi Ruth, I agree, it’s pretty amazing how much you can get for $5. In some societies, that’s a lot of money. Some things that might take us an hour to do, such as finding an error in coding, might be done very quickly by an expert.

      I’m glad you like the new theme, Ruth. I agree, it’s a lot of fun to play with the colors. I loved that readers can choose their favorite colors.

      Just to be very clear, I didn’t purchase the theme through Fiverr, I had the different Fiverr sellers help me with adjusting the theme. But I’m thrilled with the results and I’m glad you are too!

  4. Ruth - The Freelance Writing Blog says

    Yes, yes, I realize that. But knowing that you have resources to help you ‘tweak’ your existing theme is wonderful! Makes the process of redesign much less daunting!

    • says

      So true, Ruth. When you encounter a glitch you could spend an hour trying to figure out what went wrong or you could spend $5 and let someone else wrestle with the problem. I’d rather spend my time writing than messing with the code!

    Hi Carolyn,

    I knew that there were some talented people over there as I’ve had a few great deals there myself. I recently had a set of video intro’s and exits done for a specific video I put on YouTube. I was so impressed that I went straight back and bought another intro.

    I’ve also had a few articles written from there and on one occassion Ezine weren’t happy so I got back in touch with the person on Fiverr and they rewrote the offending paragraph.

    I did not reasise that the experts went to the level that you’ve detailed in the post and will be heading over there straight after this to check something out.

    I’ll have to bookmark the post as well because contacts with refferences like this are sometimes hard to find.

      If a gig doesn’t work out for you, make sure to request that it be cancelled so you can get a credit. Fiverr is very prompt with its service, taking only about a day to process the credit.

      If Reand frees up soon, you should hire him. He was prompt and delivered four logos according to my specifications.

      I hope your next Fiverr purchase works out better! :-)

      Hi Amber, I’m like you, I could really go crazy thinking of all the uses for Fiverr. I could probably come up with hundreds of ideas to use them. You’re right, it’s very handy to have a resource, but to have one that only costs $5 and is delivered within days (as opposed to months) is truly amazing.

      I was really excited to share this with my readers, but I wanted to test it thoroughly and get another opinion because, well, it seemed too good to be true. But it isn’t. Fiverr is for real. Isn’t that great news?

      I hope you have as much wonderful success with Fiverr as Jens and I have, Amber! :-)

    Hi Carolyn,

    Very glad you enjoyed the experience and love the fact how you are sharing it with others so they could also benefit. Not saying for the reason that you shared your experience with us, but for the fact that many of your readers might have needs to get things done .. and fiverr is full of great services providers having variety of skills, not to mentioned its dirt cheap as compared to other sites like elance, freelancer.com or rentacoder.

    In the end I’d like to appreciate your kinds words again. We always try to give extra value to the clients and at times we are expecting some sort of appreciation for the extra mile that we go to but not many guys are as generous as Carolyn.

    Hey, your Facebook like button is redirecting users to mine. That’s cool… only kidding ;) I visited Fiverr before when they were looking for bloggers. I think the site is a great idea, however, it is still fairly young. The webmasters need to maintain the integrity of their contributors. If they do it right, Fiverr could end up being one of the most successful sites out there, I think.

    • says

      Hi Frank, Welcome to The Wonder of Tech! So that explains why I’m getting so many Likes on my Facebook page lately. ;-)

      Good point about the quality of Fiverr being directly tied to the quality of the sellers. As with eBay, Fiverr is very dependent on how many sellers can deliver quality goods. The ratings system should help weed out those who aren’t quality sellers, but the challenge will be in attracting those sellers who are willing to provide goods and services for $5.

      So far, there seem to be plenty of people willing to sign up, so I hope it lasts. This site is a fantastic resource for bringing together those who need quick, inexpensive help with those who are willing to provide it.

      I hope Fiverr does succeed because sites that are all about helping people deserve to do well!

      Thanks for your visit and brilliant comment, Frank! :-)

      Hi Bill, Yes, I was all set to copy you with your new Grunge theme, but this was the closest I could get. I will keep trying. After all, if you’re going to copy, why not copy the master?

      If you look through Fiverr, you will find some really helpful gigs, such as moving your WordPress.com site over to a self-hosted site. Yup, for $5. I know, it may seem like a fortune, but it would probably save some people a bit of time over doing it themselves.

      How is your iPhone battery doing? I meant to ask you if you were having your email automatically downloaded to your phone (push) or if it downloaded only when you opened the email app (fetch). Having email pushed to your phone is handy, but chews up a lot of battery power.

      Merry Christmas to you and your family, Bill!

          Your iPhone is fetching email, Bill. That’s handy dandy but a drain on the battery. I suggest you turn it off to save battery power. If you miss it terribly, you can turn it back on and invest in a charger for work.

          To turn off Fetch, go to Settings => Mail, Contacts, Calendar => Fetch New Data => Off. That should make a big difference in the battery life of your iPhone. :-)

    Thanks for giving me the Fiverr recommendations. From what I have read, more people than not have had very positive experiences with Fiverr. though I have only used it twice, both of my experiences were positive.

      Hi Janet, I am glad you are enjoying the different colors. It’s amazing how much of a difference it makes with the appearance of the blog.

      I’m sorry you’re having difficulties with the blog, Janet. Does it happen only with a certain color? I haven’t heard of anyone else having problems.

      Did you notice the snow? Perhaps the Let It Snow plug-in is causing the problems.

      I don’t know what you mean by the bottom of the screen where you can move the screen to the left or right. Do you have the page minimized and you see a scroll bar at the bottom? I want to make sure I understand what issues you are seeing.

    Carolyn, aloha. There appears to be a glitch going on with you blog. When I typed the above response, I noticed it and thought maybe it was my computer. After hitting publish, I went over to Adrienne’s blog and to mine; there was no problem.

    Then I returned to comment on your next post and there it was. As I am typing this response, it’s going nuts. Here’s what’s happening.

    At the bottom on the screen where you can move the page either left or right, that bar is jumping or flashing like crazy. Quite honestly, I couldn’t even begin to count the number of jumps or flashes in a minute because it is going to quickly.

    It does it whether I am typing or sitting looking at the screen. As you can tell, I am not a wonder of tech.

    Hi Carolyn,

    Thank you very much for this information on Fiverr. I have actually used them before for a job on a ebook cover. It was fabulously done.

    I do have some pressing problems with my site regarding setting up my word press properly and getting more traffic in. Do you think it is safe to let them go into my dash board and explore.

    It is quite frustrating currently with my limitations. I know I am putting out the content but the technical stuff is really slowing me down.

    I will go ahead and see what I can find that.

    Great new look Carolyn.

      Hi Jimmy, I’m so glad you like the new look! Did you pick your own color?

      I have to tell you, I took a deep breath when I sent Admin privileges out to a complete stranger, but both times my faith was rewarded. I think if you go with someone who has a lot of positive reviews, such as the two I used for my WordPress issues, you should be safe.

      Please keep us posted on what you end up doing. It would be great to spread the word here about excellent Fiverr sellers so we know whom we can trust! :-)

        We do have snow on two islands. Outside my window I can see a dusting of snow on top of Mauna Kea. Scenic snow, I call it. Also, on Maui, on Haleakala they get snow.

      Hi Sonia, I’m so happy you had a great experience with Fiverr too! I agree, it’s easy to think of a thousand things I’d like to buy on Fiverr. Very easy to get carried away! I hope all of your future experiences with Fiverr are as successful as your past ones. It’s so handy to hire someone to help for such a reasonable price! :-)

    I have used fiverr two times before and I really like it. there are too many things we can get for 5$ which is so cheap and cool.

    I really like your new blog desgin, but to be honest I really don’t like the header background, if you send me your logo i’ll redesign the background and send it you, I like your blog So this is totally free :D

    Hi Carolyn,
    I am glad that I worked with you on this project :). I just love the fact that you mentioned me and shared it with others. I agree with you on how useful Fiverr can be at times, it gives us freelancers an opportunity to work and at the same time gets things done for cheap.
    Imagine how much would it cost to get minor things get done by a company or a firm compared to what us fiverr sellers offer for dirt cheap :).

    Wish you best of luck for your current and upcoming projects :). Let me know if you need any help :) Here is my link so that others can find me easily :)

      Hi Don, I don’t have to say, “Welcome to The Wonder of Tech” because I know you have been here before. I know you didn’t realize I would be writing a review of Fiverr and your services when you helped me with my blog, but I am very grateful to you for your hard work and professionalism every step of the way.

      Thank you for your help and for providing excellent service I can recommend to Wonder of Tech readers. You’re right, Fiverr is a fantastic resource for people who need fast, affordable help.

      I’m sure I will be contacting you again in the future. Best wishes for much continued success in 2012!
