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.
Have you got a hidden news story in your Gig? Drop us a line or leave a message in the comments below.
Happy Gigging, Fiverrs!
