Has anyone out there used the services of www.fiverr.com? I recently heard about it and have checked out the site briefly. I have not hired anyone to do anything yet. But, there are loads of people willing and capable of doing a lot of different services for $5. Yep, $5.
There are people who claim they can do deep internet searches for you on any topic. I’m tempted to forgo a morning coffee at the local coffee joint and hire someone to do a search just to see what comes back. Maybe, a search of all fastener distributors in a certain geographic location? That search is not a terribly difficult one to do but maybe they’ll know more search engines than I do. The different services include graphic designs, voice over work, musical composition and all kinds of random talents.
Let me know if anyone out there has ever used this. I know one college administrator that uses them to collect data pertinent to their recruitment needs. For about $40/month they get a ton of information and do not tie up their own personnel. Just one example I know of, I’m sure you can find others on the site.
