Fiverr is a marketplace that started in 2010. Its name comes from the original price of gigs or jobs at only a “Fiverr” ($5.00 US) per task. It is classified as a freelance marketplace and offers many diverse jobs and services. Fiverr is considered a micro-task blog, much like other sites like Taskrabbit or Thumbtack, and offers many jobs at comparable rates.
Some of the ethical business services you can buy or sell include influenced marketing, social media or blog posting, business card templates, content creation, and help with websites or promotions.
There are unique and silly services that people have thought up to make money. You can pay someone to write things on their stomach and model for a photo, pay someone to make you a puppet video or one with a hamster writing your name in lettuce, or hire someone to call and punk your friends. One man is selling services to pretend to be your boyfriend and make your ex jealous on Facebook.
As of November 2015, Fiverr allowed sellers to charge more than $5 for basic services, and has received over $110 million dollars in funding from investors. According to an article in VentureBeat, back in November 2015, they stated they were handling over a million transactions per month.
