Disclosure: Just so you know, we may sometimes earn a small commission from affiliate links on this site.

Fiverr is an online marketplace offering a huge range of services (from the sublime to the ridiculous) that startups can utilize, for only five dollars.

If you're wondering what service could possibly offer any value for only $5, then you are in exactly the same boat I was.

Most of the services (called gigs) that are available on fiverr are probably not even worth the five bucks they charge. But, if you are willing to dig a bit deeper, there are a few gems that can save you a lot of time and money.

This article lists 3 of the best fiverr gigs that will do a great job. Try 'em out - they only cost $5.

1. Set up an eCommerce store

Believe it or not, you can get a professional eCommerce site set up and running for only $5.

The online store that is built for you is based on leading eCommerce software, and comes with cutting edge design and technology, with support for mobile. Plus, everything you need to manage and grow your company.

They will choose an awesome theme and design based on the information you provide about your store. And, will also help to set up some of your primary product categories.

Not only that, but this particular service also throws in a great PDF "starter guide" to help you find your way around the new site once it is set up.

Perfect for anyone new to eCommerce.

Primary benefits

I would say that there are 3 main benefits to using this service:

  1. Based on industry leading technology
  2. Comes with customization based on your store requirements
  3. PDF starter guide helps you go live quickly

If you are starting an online store, and aren't sure where to start then this service offer a huge amount of value. For only $5, you'll save yourself hours, days or weeks of research, frustration, and trial and error.

2. Write a professional 400 word press release

Like any other type of content, creating a press release has its own set of accepted standards and norms that make writing effective ones quite tricky.

You're either going to have to spend some time and money practicing to write your own press releases, or you can spend $5 to get someone who has written over 2000 press releases, at an average positive rating of 98% to do it for you - quickly and easily.

Press releases are important. But so is my time, and I don't want to waste it trying to be a master of every discipline under the sun. That's why I have started outsourcing my press releases.

Primary benefits

I would say that using this particular press release service is a good idea for the following reasons:

  1. Save time and effort
  2. Leverage the enormous experience of the press release specialist

Caution: Given how seriously Google punishes un-natural backlink profiles, I would recommend you only use this service to write your press release. Post it or share it yourself rather than have it posted automatically.

3. Set up email marketing

Hoo boy! I wish I had the benefit of hindsight and been able to use this service a few months back. It would have saved me a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth - that ended up with me writing this comparison review of two leading email marketing services.

Implementing a professional email marketing campaign is one of the most important fundamentals of any online business.

There's a saying, "the money's in the list". And this is very, very true.

Building up a strong, opt-in mailing list not only gives you access to people who are interested in your niche, but also provides some protection from the wild mood swings of Google search traffic.

Google is renowned for simply decimating sites by dropping their page rankings and cutting off traffic without any warning or explanation. And, if you aren't prepared for this eventuality, it could mean the end of your company.

Primary benefits

To my mind, there are three things that set this particular gig apart, and make it truly useful for webmasters and Internet based entrepreneurs:

  1. Use of a leading online email marketing service, with a focus on usability and elegant design
  2. Provides a super easy, custom designed, copy-and-paste sign-up form for your website
  3. PDF starter guide helps smooth out the learning curve

A decent mailing list should be a priority for anyone, and for $5, this gig punches way above its weight in terms of value for money. It will save you hours, if not days during setup, and make life a lot easier as your list grows.

3 top tips to pitching big clients

Recently I was fortunate enough to attend a meeting between my startup and one of the largest logistics companies in the country - so that we could pitch our new service.

The size of this client would almost be sufficient to reach sustainability and profitability in one go. Obviously landing a whale in your first pitch as a new startup is the ultimate dream come true, but it can be hard to turn it into reality.

The meeting went ok, but there were some hard lessons learned about how to pitch big corporate clients that my partners and I took away from the experience.

Universities wanting to offer a course on Internet entrepreneurship can start here

Being an entrepreneur is something that should be encouraged and nurtured in everyone from an early age - especially in a country like the U.S. where the economy relies on small business.

Every school and university should offer a range of courses designed to empower young people to take an idea and turn it into a profitable enterprise, with confidence and competence.

Sadly, most educational institutes seem intent on sticking to dry, academic curricula that might teach young minds how to think, but don't prepare them for the harsh realities of the real world.

Tools and tips on how to source products online

Small retail businesses and eCommerce sites need to consistently choose the best products to sell in order to maximize their profits.

But trying to find this information is not always easy, and there are plenty of "silver bullet" sites (and con men) that will try to make a profit by advising you to stock products that give them commission.

It's far better to be able to do your own research into which products offer the best value for money for your own customers and clients. After all, you know your business best.

Genuine bloggers and businesses use high quality articles to build high page rankings in Google and generate plenty of valuable organic search traffic.

The problem is that the better the content, the more likely it is that others will duplicate, copy, or spin those articles and publish them on their own sites (without permission or attribution).

Most of the time this is not an issue because low quality, article spinning sites generally tend not to rank well in Google search results.

How to prevent spammers hijacking your servers

There's nothing worse than finding out your business website has been hacked and is being used to send out bulk emails, spam visitors, or spread malicious software.

If it hasn't happened to you, don't fall into the trap of thinking that this scenario is something that happens to other people. Spam hacks are absolutely rampant.

Fortunately, the business model of spammers requires them, more often than not, to automate their hacks to seek out vulnerable Web servers and sites, because they have to do things on a huge scale to turn a profit.
