This is a marketplace where people are selling their skills in $5 and you can get any of your online/offline work done in just $5. They call it GIG, so when you are buying anything from Fiverr then in their technical term you are buying GIGS.
Fiverr is completely free to join and you can list your services in $5. They will keep $1 from every gig which you will sell via Fiverr, in simple we can say; they are keeping $1 as commission.
This is the best place for internet marketers because there are many gigs related to social media, graphics design, video and animation, writing, advertising, building backlinks, blog commenting, logo design, business cards, SEO, copy-writing and many more. Just name any online work and you will find people offering their services in just $5.
You can simply make your profile on Fiverr and start offering your services. Once you will start selling services then according to your customer's responses they will rate your service. So Fiverr has made first level seller, second level seller and top rated seller. Once you will achieve any of the good levels, you will start getting more sales.
