Five Bucks Is Worth A Lot
Wednesday, March 3, 2010 17:14 GMTTEL AVIV, Israel (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) Five bucks can go a long way, even in this terrible economy.
On Fiverr.com that small amount can actually pay for a variety of goods and services.
The website allows users to post whatever theyre able to trade for the bargain price of $5, including personalized portraits, professionally Photoshopped photos, and help with computer issues.
However, the weirder bargain buys make browsing worthwhile.
This includes video footage of a strangers puppy, tips on how to break up with someone, or an earful of condescending fatherly advice from a random dude who charges $5 to yell at you.
Founder Micha Kaufman says the service is all about buying, selling, and having a good time, especially in these tougher times.
It also gives people the opportunity to contribute to society and give back whatever skills they have to the world for a low down payment.
