Video makers, voice-over artists, musicians, cartoonists, dancers, singers, crazy people, listen up… This post applies very much to you…
Hungry Jack’s, the Australian version of Burger King, wants to prove that you can get great value for $5. And where better to do that than right here on Fiverr?
To coincide with the return of their $4.95 value meal, they are attempting to create a TV campaign where all the different elements cost just $5. Things like music, animation, graphics, voice-overs and well… pretty much anything that’s crazy.
Hungry Jack’s have dubbed this the ‘$5 experiment’. If you think you’ve got what it takes to be a star on national TV and would like to offer your unique talents, then now is your chance. Post a link to your Gig in the comments section below and you may receive an order from a Hungry Jack’s representative in the next few days.
So last night I received a message. “I’m going to be on GlobalTV! I’m going to be on the news with my Fiverr Gigs!”
My good friend Rob, who goes by the name DJEmotion on Fiverr had apparently flagged down a news van earlier in the morning and given them one of his Fiverr business cards (which were suitably designed by user TofuPanda). He told them get in touch to talk about his successes on Fiverr, and they did just that. Back at the studio they’d checked out DJEmotion’s Gigs and fell in love with his bathtub offerings and decided the story was not just quirky, but impressive enough to find out more.
In the afternoon a news crew visited DJEmotion’s home to give a full on interview for a two minute segment on GlobalTV. Wow!
What else is there to say but watch the damn video, it’s great!
Impressed? You should be! DJEmotion managed to take a well meaning but bizarre Gig and explain to the world (or at least 100,000 Calgary viewers) that Fiverr is a global market place where you can get just about anything or any service for just $5! Hats off to the Canadian in the bathtub.

Good day, lovebirds of Fiverr. How art thou on this fine Spring morning? Has your suitor appeared bearing a single white rose yet? Have you scaled the side of a mountain to deliver your loved one a box of Milk Tray? Well we’re happy to report that our Valentine Fiverrs have been super busy over the past fortnight, fulfilling orders and tainting the tip of Cupid’s arrow with their very own love juice!
Andrea, a Fiverr user from Italy used his time running up to V-day resourcefully by purchasing Gigs from video sellers and musicians all over the world, asking them to recite an Italian phrase for his girlfriend. You see poor Andrea’s sweetheart, Georgia moved to Paris a few months ago and his heart has started to ache from her absence. With the collected videos he created a compilation just like the That’s Amore tribute we posted here a couple of weeks back. This was the gift he gave to his fairer half.
Smart-thinking Andrea caught the moment Georgia watched her video for the first time on camera and created this wonderful memento to remember the occasion.
Lovely! Georgia, you’re one very lucky lady! [Wipes away a single tear from our eye.]
We want to know; did you use any Fiverr services to assist in the serenading of your Romeo or Juliet this February 14th? Let us know in the comment section below!
Ladies, your chance is looming. There’s less than a month (and it’s a shorter month than normal) until a 1 in 1461 day opportunity to ask your fella to marry you. What am I talking about? It’s a leap year of course and this February has an extra day bolted on to the end of it, just to confuse us all.
The tradition goes a little something like this. Guys are normally the ones expecting to be getting down on one knee, but on a leap day it is expected that the fairer sex have the honor. So what has this got to do with Fiverr and you? Well one of our illustrious sellers has come up with a cute little Gig, offering a valuable service for the day…
So girls, if your man doesn’t pop the question this Valentine’s Day, then you’ll get your own chance on the 29th February. And if you need a little bit of help doing the asking, you can Fiverr it:

There’s a whole world of love out there to be discovered on Fiverr. Check out the compilation video below that was created using the incredible, varied talent of Fiverr video sellers from around the globe…
If you don’t recognise this happy chappy, then where have you been in the last few months on Fiverr? User Baldy first showed up in the videos section offering an hilarious sky diving promotion video. Within days it gained traction and within a few weeks he was offering several other alter-egos’ video services, including a granny in a supermarket on a scooter and a buck-toothed hillbilly in a caravan. [I kid you not.]
Baldy’s story is an interesting one. I dropped him a line when he first appeared on Fiverr to introduce myself and he was as charming back then as he has always been. Whilst between jobs, he decided to use his hiatus productively and set up a Gig to start earning a bucketful of cash. ‘…Not only does it bring in a much needed income to feed my wife and five children, it keeps this old grey brain active too…’.
What made Baldy’s videos stand out from the rest was his clever use of green screen technology. Offering something unique to his buyers gave him an advantage and pushed sales through the roof. I’ve seen many positive trends happening to Gigs on Fiverr however, what Baldy managed to achieve changed the playing field in terms of quality. He showed the world how to get noticed on Fiverr and become an instant success by providing exceptionally high quality video content.
I’ve recently heard from the sky diving maniac, who got in touch to tell me he’d landed a full time job as a plant manager [Not entirely sure what this is, but I'm imagining Homer Simpson in Mister Burns's nuclear power plant]. I’m delighted for him and feel exceptionally lucky to have met such an inspirational seller on Fiverr, who I believed raised the bar for creative Gigs everywhere.
Before Baldy started his new adventure, I asked him if he could make a video tutorial revealing his behind the scenes secrets on how he actually did it all. I even purchased a Gig for the privilege, although watching it back I think I owe him a few more Fiverrs for the work that went into it:
Thank you Baldy, you’ve been an inspiration and we hope to see you back on Fiverr again some time soon, moistening up that brain of yours.
How does one show spirit within the community? User Forgetaboutit has the right idea on their radio commercial Gig, by encouraging the use of other services available on Fiverr.
A quick read of their Gig description reveals a bonus extra if you use a Fiverr voice over artist to create the commercial that will be played:
“We will DOUBLE your FIRST order if you use a Fiverr voice over professional to record your spot.” – Nice.
We think that this shows great community enterprise and can’t wait to see other examples of the same. Have you ever bought several Fiverr Gigs in the aim of one goal? Perhaps created a video using several Gigs or helped start your business with the aid of Fiverr sellers. We’d love to hear from you!
