About three months ago I wrote about a virtual service for certain type of manufacturers called Maker's Row. In essence, Maker's Row is database of 7,000 manufacturers that can help an entrepreneur build a prototype and/or produce a product.
Now the same database exists for marketing and promotion. It is called Fiverr. According to the FAQ page:
Fiverr® is the world's largest marketplace for services starting at $5. A service offered on Fiverr is called a Gig®. Gigs on Fiverr are offered for a fixed, base price of $5 (also referred to as one Fiverr). Whenever you see 'I will _for $5", it means the seller is offering a Gig for the fixed price of $5.
Fiverr is an inventory of service providers including graphic artists, online marketing specialists, any type of writers, translators, video/animation experts, and advertisers.
In fact, on the directory page, you will find eight broad categories and over 80 specific services available for hire. Every category has the service provider, an example of the product, cost options, buyer reviews and customer comments. As a customer, you can even determine the time you need your work done.
Think of it like Angie's List, only for a comprehensive marketing and media service providers. You must be a member and nothing is free.
However, I offer a couple of words of caution. As pointed out to me, you get what you pay for. Second, business owner/marketing contractors generally have to develop a relationship.
