Fiverr. What is Fiverr you might ask? According to their website:
"Fiverr® is the world’s largest marketplace for services. A service offered on Fiverr is called a Gig®.So, what does this mean for you? Well, if you are particularly talented at basically anything you can make some money for yourself by selling your services, or likewise if you are in need of a service, chances are you will be able to get it done cheaper on Fiverr than elsewhere.
While $5 is a popular starting price for offers on Fiverr, tiered offers called Gig Packages are now available in a variety of categories and growing. Gig Packages allow sellers to offer additional services at a wider range of price points."
For example, I recently started a business and was seeking somebody to do the digital design for my company logo. Locally, I had contacted a few people and one person wanted $130 for 2 logo designs.
Instead of doing this, I sought out the Logo Design section on Fiverr and was able to acquire an $80 package that includes 6 unique logos, social media banners, business card designs, and stationery designs. This allowed me to skim down (albeit little) on initial start-up costs for the business.
