One of the most popular topics on the New York Tech mailing list as of late is about the startup Fiverr. The startup is a place where people post things they will do for $5. I bought a SEO report from a Fiverr user and it arrived within two hours. There are tons of listings on Fiverr from users all over the world. You pay for the tasks using Paypal and I found the payment and account system very easy to use. Most of the tasks I’ve looked at also offer “upgrades” which push the price over $5 and sometimes way over.
Dean Collins from LiveFanChat posted on the mailing list that the best Fiverr task to-date has been from a customer who requested a club remix of his recording of his stolen car to the Detroit Police. You can listen to the jam here – it was created by a musician in Croatia.
Here are five interesting tasks currently listed on Fiverr (click the links to watch the videos for each task):
Listing 1: I will be your girlfrend on facebook for a week for $5
Valentine’s Day is now long gone and next year you won’t want to be single on this very important holiday. Well user Dores from the UK will be your Facebook girlfriend for a week for $5. So doing the math, you and Dores can be hooked up for a year for just $260!
And if you are looking for a boyfriend, then check out user Kanisoori from the US – he too will change your status to “in a relationship” for $5 per week.
Listing 2: I will hand coo the song of your choice for $5
Based in the UK, this man with 23 positive reviews will “coo” any song you want for a $5 bill. No seriously – he will “coo” any song you want for $5.
Listing 3: I will say anything you script with my hands as puppets for 30 seconds for $5
With 40 positive reviews, user buckywoods from the US will say anything you want using his hand for up to 30 seconds for a crisp $5. You can tack on an upgrade for an additional $5 that will allow you to post a URL inside the video.
Listing 4: I will keep your secret safe for $5
Killed someone recently? Had sex with an ex and now you think you might be pregnant with his baby? Not really a social media expert even though you say you are? Well then user Realwahl from Italy is the person you need to connect with! For $5, you can tell him your secrets and he will keep them safe. He promises not to tell anyone!
Listing 5: I will promote your website, say your message while in the shower for $5
If you need more promotion to your website or want something funny for a friend, maybe give user melaishere from the US a try. For a $5 bill she will say your message or website while she is in the shower. Her big upgrade costs another $5 and for the $10 total she will be soapy in the shower while she says your message. She does make it clear that she will not do topless or nude videos.
