I have been outsourcing various internet marketing jobs for years and years, but nothing i’ve done in the past is quite like Fiverr.com In case you’ve been living in a bomb shelter for the past 2 years, Fiverr.com is a website that is dedicated to $5 jobs! People will do all sorts of different things for $5, from making videos, promoting your website, or even collecting & sending you sea shells from their local beach. You’d be surprised how much you can have done for a measly $5. If you’re already familiar with Fiverr.com then you know exactly what I’m talking about.
In this post I wanted to share 11 of the types of jobs you can outsource on fiverr.com that really stand out to me. Hopefully these will spark some ideas for you as well! At the end of this post, be sure to share your experiences with Fiverr in the comments below. Here are 10 things you should consider outsourcing on Fiverr.com”
#1. Make an Introduction Video!
There are a lot of talented video editors on Fiverr.com that can make you a custom video intro using Adobe After effects or Sony Vegas. All you have to do is search for “Video Intro” and you’ll get over 1000 results! We have made a couple video intros from Fiverr, and have had some great results! You can use these introduction videos the the beginning and/or end of your videos before you upload them to Youtube.com or Vimeo.com (or your other favorite video sharing sites) Simply find a template that you like, and pay $5 to have it customized for you.
#2. Hire a Voice Over Talent
Before Fiverr.com was around, I regularly paid around $50 for a 2 minute voice over talent, and up to $300 for bigger jobs. This is actually pretty normal pricing. (or was…) There are some amazing voice talents on Fiverr.com from deep radio voices, to famous impressions, to pretty much anything you can think of. Our best use so far of this was when we hired a deep voiced guy to repeat “Profit Blog Dot Com” 30 different times in different voice styles for $5. We then used the best one, and edited one of our intro videos (That we also paid $5 for) in Camtasia, and made a better into video. here is the actual video we made for a grand total of $10!
As you may have noticed, it’s a transformer theme, but we really liked it and went with it. If you want something even more unique, usually you can private message the provider on fiverr to work a deal. However, for a simple video intro, you can’t beat $10. There’s really no need to pay $200 – $400 for a simple video intro if it’s just being used for your free videos, but it’s up to you.
#3. Have a Custom Twitter Background Created
Ever since the launch of Twitter, there have been dozens of websites dedicated to making custom Twitter backgrounds. Some of these sites charge $50 – $100 for just 1 custom background. Thankfully, Fiverr.com has plenty of graphics designers willing to make you one for $5! You can send them images of yourself, explain exactly what you want, and give them the links to your social media profiles, and they’ll do the rest! And guess what? If for some reason, you still don’t like it, you’re only out $5 and you can just hire someone else to make one for you. With Fiverr.com even if you lose, you really don’t lose much at all! I just did a search for “Twitter Background” and got 120 results!
#4. Basic Graphic Design
There are a lot of different things you can outsource on Fiverr.com as far as graphics are concerned, but here are a few that come to mind.
- Logos - if you don’t have a logo for your blog, product, or service, there are some AMAZING designers ready, willing, and able to do it for you!
- Ebook Covers – No more paying someone $40 to make you a custom ebook cover. There are plenty of great ecover designers on Fiverr!
- Banner Ads – If you need some banner ads created, you’re also in luck!
- Caricatures – If you want one of those really awesome characters of yourself, for marketing purposes or otherwise, you’d be amazed at the quality of Caricatures you can have made for just $5!
#5. Funny Videos!
Maybe you want to lighten the mood a bit on your blog, or even send something funny to one of your friends. There are a ton of people on Fiverr that do crazy things on video for $5. One person that comes to mind is the Plastic Bag Man . He will make you a video testimonial (not sure why’d you’d want one) or say whatever you want. There’s also people that wear chicken costumes, hotdog costumes, and even dress like zombies with face paint and everything. Just use your imagination, and maybe you can find a way to use this is your marketing. (I’m still working on that part.. lol)
#6. Press Release Submissions
If you’ve ever had to submit press releases by hand, you know what a pain in the a$$ it can be. Well luckily, you can find plenty of people to submit your press release for you, and even guarantee it to be included in Google News. Don’t know how to write a press release? Well, there are people to help you with that as well for $5! (To have a press release written and submitted for $10 is insane! Just make sure to do your research on who you hire first). Also, if you do decide to hire someone to write your press release on Fiverr.com, MAKE SURE to proof read it first. There is obviously a chance you’ll get a sub-par press release, but in my mind it’s worth the gamble. If anything, you’ll have a good base to work with.
#7. Have your Ad Played on an Internet Radio Show!
Now this one is really cool! Did you know that there are a lot of internet radio shows out there, some with a large audience? You can broadcast an advertisement to these listeners for only $5. Some of the radio advertising jobs on Fiverr include a full month of advertising, so find one that you like and test it out! just search for “Radio Station” on fiverr.com If you have success with this, please let me know in the comments below! I’d love to hear about it!
#8. Technical Services
I know that some people just aren’t technical savvy at all, and have trouble installing various scripts or other things on their server. Luckily there are people on Fiverr who will install practically anything for you for just $5. just make sure to only hire someone with good feedback and a long history on Fiverr. It can be a security risk if you let an untrustworthy person on log into your server.

Just use your imagination!
#10. Distribute Your Videos All Over The Internet!
If you aren’t already using sites like Tubemogul.com to distribute your videos, you may want to consider paying someone on Fiverr.com to distribute them for you. For just $5, you can have your video distributed to 15-30 different video sharing sites. Just do a search for “Video Sharing” and choose one of the services with good feedback.
#11 Transcribe Audio / Video
This one is kinda hard to believe, because transcribing can normally be pretty expensive. I’ve seen transcription services go for $2-$5 per minute, and on Fiverr you can find some people who will transcribe 15 minutes for only $5! This includes webinars, teleseminars, videos, or anything else. You can even make your audio / video product more valuable by including an “ebook” with the package by having your content transcribed. There are plenty of transcribers on Fiverr.com. I just did a quick search by typing “transcribe” and found over 240 results!
As you can see, there are many options available on Fiverr.com to help grow your business. These are just some of the ones I have used, and recommend.
