My Fiverr Experiment

May 24, 2012

So I put up a “gig” on Fiverr about five months ago. For those of you not familiar with Fiverr, it’s a site where people do things for $5.

There tons of random things people are willing to do (like burp your name and record it) and most of them seem pretty useless. But there is also a number of listings that provide useful services like simple logo designs or article writing. I put up my gig to sell my Photoshop ebook. I think I got around two sales in five months. So I decided to change it up a bit. I spiced up the ad copy and made it a little more humerous and I added a video to the gig page. I used my new Animoto software of course 🙂 Now I am going to see if adding video and new copy makes any difference at all. I’ll keep you posted. Here’s a link to the page if you want to check it out.

This post isn’t elearning related but I still wanted to share it with you. I learned a pretty cool (in my opinion) trick in Google Docs so I recorded a quick video. Hope you find it helpful.
