Where to Find Labor for $5

Thanks to Joan Stewart, The Publicity Hound, for the heads up about how to hire services for $5! There are some great online resources on the web, but Fiverr.com is now one of my favorites!

Need a snappy headline for your press release?

What about a logo for your business? Or a cartoon for a special report you're publishing?

Need help installing a WordPress blog? Or creating a Twitter account?

Head on over to Fiverr.com where thousands of people have posted little ads about what they're willing to do for $5.

Daniel Hall mentioned this site last week when he was my guest during the webinar on how to create an ebook for the Kindle (see next item below). He suggested it as a place to find a dirt-cheap artist who can create an ebook cover, or a proofreader who can make sure your ebook is error-free.

When I shared the Fiverr link on Friday, during my presentation on blogging for the Wisconsin Business Owners Association, several people in the audience raved about the site. One guy said he paid $5 to have someone install his WordPress blog.

Fiverr.com can be a thrifty alternative to sites like Elance.com, ODesk.com and Vworker.com, particularly if you have a small project and you're in a hurry.
