One thing that always makes me laugh is when my friends respond to an email of mine and ask “What does LOL stand for?”
Now, in case you did not know, it stands for “laugh out loud”.
I fully understand that not everyone is up to par with geek slang but what I really don’t get is when someone finds it easier to write me a 5 word email than to search for something on Google. You ever get that?
Heck, I sometimes even do that: I work on the computer and when I don’t know how to spell a word, I get up, find my wife, distract her from whatever she is doing, and ask her if she knows how to spell “nescience” (it means: lack of knowledge or awareness).
She usually reminds me (of what should be obvious) to just “google it“.
Similarly, I have webmasters emailing me all the time with questions like: Where can I get quality but cheap backlinks? Where can I get this or that done? What if I don’t have time to set up a website, SEO campaign, etc?
My new answer to questions like that is: Fiverr
That’s right: Fiverr it!
Fiverr is really very straight forward and you can get just about everything done on there for a gigg or two (a gigg costs $5). Anything from getting a new website template or logo designed, to getting .edu backlinks or even have someone do your videos or commercials for you. The sky is the limit.
Heck… you can even get a “facebook boyfriend or girlfriend” through fiverr (obviously designed to make someone jealous) or get Lamborghini pictures with your message on it (thinking I might get this to make my high-school buddies jealous, hehe).
Again, if you need something tedious done, fiverr it!
Fiverr has thousands of experts who are willing to help you with your tasks so that you can focus on things that really matter and need your attention.
I even found a cool guide that walks you through the “fiverr outsourcing” process. Check it out here!
If you are new to fiverr or have never bought anything on there yet, I recommend you signup right now. It only takes a minute and once you have an account, you will find plenty of things you can outsource on there.
Just browse through all the categories – it gets your brain juices going. It’s pretty cool!
Once you have made your first successful gig purchase, you will be hooked. A month later you will not be able to imagine what life would be like without fiverr.
Finally, why outsource? Because time is your most valuable asset. You can always make more money, but your time gets less each day. Invest it in things that money can’t buy!
