What are you willing to do for five dollars?

Did you know there’s a site online that will actually pay you to do some of the ridiculous things you do for FREE??

Go to www.fiverr.com and sign up. I did, and my first day on, I made five bucks, which morphed into $250.00 dollars. In my case, the client saw the quality of what I was offering, paid his five bucks then found me on my own site, and contracted me that night for another job I completed hours after signing up. I’m not guaranteeing this will happen for you, but it is possible!

The key is doing what you love, and somewhere, there’s a person who will pay you to do that. You just have to put yourself in front of the RIGHT people.

Fiverr does that.

Maybe you’re the best shower singer in your building, or you bake the best apple pie on the Rock, or you can recite the star spangled banner in Swahili I KNOW a great little site that will PAY you for that and it’s called FIVERR.

The concept of fiverr is simple: after signing up and creating your account, you can immediately start placing ads.

You simply answer one simple question! “What would you do for five dollars?”

Not only can you post ads yourself, but you can also hire other people to do tasks for you for that same amount.

Just last night I contracted an social marketing expert to put my www.Subwaysurfer.com site in thousands of online directories.

This is an daunting task that I needed to do myself but lacked the time.

It was done overnight!

I can’t wait for the results!

Before signing up you need to have a PAYPAL account imposed. Fiverr needs to have a place to send your money to, or pull money out in case you hire someone.

My suggestion is that you choose to do a service that doesn’t make a big investment in your time and energy. In my case, even though I’m doing art, I don’t do full all out things that I would normally do for a more high paying client.

All it takes is a little imagination!
