While doing some research into the podcasting element of the business I was given a site as a recommendation. The name of the site is www.fiverr.com and it’s a marketplace for creatives to offer services like video, advertising on their work, or audio.
The general concept is simple.. for $5 the creative type has a very basic entry level promotional offering and then they scale up with additional services. It’s Genius in that I’m always happy to spend less than a trip to McDonalds on a new idea. If the idea works out I develop a relationship with a creative professional, I get quality product and they get a new regular customer.
I’m really enthralled by this site as I think it can be a great option for low cost promotional media assuming I get to the point where I have a need of a commercial, a video creation element, etc.. I’m really looking forward to when I have a need.
