I have been thinking about outsourcing more of my work for a while. I have been outsourcing work via discussion forums, and that’s especially why I love to connect with people on various forums.
There are two reasons why I don’t do the work myself:
I don’t have the time to do it myself
I want to do so many things. I want to write at least two blog posts a day, and at least one article a day, and guest posts, and a lot more. What I really want is to network more, connect with each and every one of my readers (and people who are not yet reading my blog). But all I end up with is the 1 hour blog traffic technique. I just don’t have the time.
I don’t have the knowledge to do it myself
I am a decent writer, that’s it. I try to do things related to basic html, and image editing as well, but I am no expert. So, when it comes to things like web design and various forms of coding, I pay other people to do the work.
I have tested Fiverr
I’m going to make a long story short. I have tested Fiverr, a community of people who are all doing stuff for $5. Everything cost $5, no matter what they’re offering. You’ll never pay a dime more or less, it’s always $5.
There are a lot of amazing offers, almost everything you can imagine.
I also suck at video. I record videos of my kids, and for use at home with my family. But I don’t record, edit, or appear in any videos online. So, I thought, why not give it a try on Fiverr, ask someone to visit my blog and record a testimonial for $5. I didn’t tell her what to say, and I didn’t tell her anything than to visit my blog and do a review.
This is the result (I received the video in 2 days).
What do you think?
Have you tested Fiverr (or considered testing it)?
