Fiverr.com is a micro-job website where anyone with any kind of skill can post random jobs they are willing to do for $5. Fiverr is free to join, takes only about a half hour to set up, and you only need a PayPal account to accept payment.
The “thing” or service that you offer on Fiverr is called a “GIG”. Gigs can be any service that the seller is willing to offer in exchange for $5. Gigs typically range from business services such as setting up a WordPress template, creating a video to promote a service, leaving positive blog feedback, or sending out Twitter tweets to large amounts of followers. There are also many bizarre gigs that can be something as simple calling a buyer daily with affirmations of love to writing your name in the sand on the beach and sending the buyer a picture of the writing.
Posting a gig is free and you can offer as many gigs as you like. You can also request a gig if there is something that you are looking for and it is not already offered.
Once you have joined Fiverr, either by linking your Facebook profile or by traditional registration, you can post your service that you are willing to offer or buy a service that another user is offering.
