Fiverr Fury: Is It Worth the Price?

If you can imagine it, it's on Fiverr. A site that offers services that range from songs, to commercials, to even graphic artists.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- Sometimes you just want to get creative.  So if you've ever needed to find a British voice over for a story or a puppet message in a video, there is a website for you to start your search.

The site is called Fiverr and if offers really any kind of appropriate service for five bucks.  But are those dollars worth spending?

If you can imagine it, it's on Fiverr. A site that offers services that range from songs, to commercials, to even graphic artists. It launched three years ago and has a total of over 2,600,000 services, and each one is unique in its own way.

Take a look at Harold Everett. He's loud, energetic. and really whatever you want him to be. This is his five dollar service. Like many other Fiverr users Harold offers a unique service starting at five dollars.

His lowest rate is five dollars per 50 words, and it increases from there. But what really are you paying for? In Harold's case, his student loans.

In a written statement to KOLR10, Harold said, "I was drowning in student loan debt and throwing my income toward my business. I figured this would be a great way to alleviate myself of student loans."

Harold is one of Fiverr's top rated sellers and has seen the benefits first hand, or in his case, first punch.

He said, "I am a high school teacher by day, and do freelance music work and fiverr by night. It has also helped put a nice dent in my loan situation (almost done with my installments!!!)."

"It's a great way to put yourself out there internationally, it's a teaser," Said Mark Steiner.

Mark Steiner knows gigs and knows Fiverr is a good start.

He's the CEO of the locally based and internationally connected, Gig Salad and even he is interested in this marketing tool.

"It's a little addicting. I almost bought hundreds of things just because."

But when it comes to Fiverr, Mark warns the golden rule of business, "You get what you pay for."
