Fiverr and the New York Yankees Present: The Game Changer

Share your brand story and get votes for the chance to win the following game-changing prizes, including enormous exposure for your business.

Baseball may officially be the national pastime, but we at Fiverr would argue that entrepreneurship is the original American pursuit of happiness. We’re always looking for ways to help small businesses and startups do more with less. So we’re teaming up with the New York Yankees to give businesses big-league brand exposure through our newest competition, “The Game Changer.” Together, Fiverr and the New York Yankees are celebrating the hard work of entrepreneurs across the country by giving them a chance to tell their story on the nation’s biggest stage, Yankee Stadium. Former Yankees World Series champion and budding entrepreneur Johnny Damon will serve as a business expert and contest judge.

We’ll let Johnny himself explain:

How It Works

Winners will take home a once-in-a-lifetime prize package that will change their business forever, highlighted by major advertising exposure at Yankee Stadium. In addition to an LED advertisement designed in collaboration with a professional Fiverr Pro designer, winners will also walk away with Delta SKY360 Suite tickets to a Yankees game, a VIP party with Johnny Damon, and $1,500 in additional Fiverr credit to grow their businesses. With the help of a designated Fiverr Success Manager, winning businesses can find top talent for services ranging from a new logo, updated SEO and content for their website, or social media management.

How To Enter

Starting today, entrepreneurs like you will be able to compete for the chance to win by creating 30-second video submissions explaining your brand story. Record your story ahead of time and upload it to the Game Changer website. Submissions should creatively explain what drives you to succeed and what sets your business apart.

Already submitted? It’s time to share, share, share! Spread the word about the contest and your brand by using the social sharing buttons on your entry. Ask your customers, friends, and family to share and vote to get you one step closer to the prize. We’ll also be sharing some of our favorite entries on Fiverr’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter channels as well as our blog—so entrants have the opportunity for double exposure!

How to Win

Voting closes on 9/8 and the top fifteen videos will be selected through a process of public engagement and a panel of judges. Entries will then be narrowed down to the winners by key Fiverr stakeholders and Johnny Damon. Read all the details over on Terms and ConditionsThe five winners will be announced on 9/14—just in time to see their brand’s name in lights at the 9/18 Yankees home game at Yankees Stadium.

“Fiverr is a community and marketplace that enables every start-up, small business, and entrepreneur to take their business to the next level,” says Micha Kaufman, our CEO. “Partnering with the Yankees, Fiverr has created a unique opportunity for five of the most deserving entrepreneurs to tell their stories and bring their businesses to the Yankees’ and Fiverr’s global audience.”

Dear Hanna
The sistem is letting us vote more than once like every 24hrs. Is this ok? Or should we only vote once? The sistem allows us to do this

Are the three businesses featured in the promotional video that was created to promote the contest eligible to win? Curious.

I tried for hours to submit my entry today because I had all kinds of problems with my computer and signal. Finally got the video to upload and it says the contest ended….did the contest close early?

Beth, it was SCANDALOUS and UNREASONABLE!! I spent a WEEK on my video and associated website development and crowdfunding campaigns – mostly with Fiverr sellers, FULLY expecting I had until midnight – last night, to submit it, since the webpage clearly indicated that 9/8/17 was the deadline date. Even the top portion of the “Terms and Conditions” clearly indicated that 9/8/17 was the deadline date. And when I submitted at 11 p.m., it indicated it had ended. If you read the “fine print” in the “Terms and Conditions”, in only ONE of the three places that it explains the deadline… Read more »

Beth, there’s CONCRETE evidence out there, to indicate that we should have had until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, to submit our videos!! Go to picsin(dot)co (written in the normal format, and .co not .com), enter fiverr in the search bar, and click on the first icon on the upper left. Then look at the top entry – on the right. It was STRATEGICALLY posted at 5:59 p.m. Thursday, to indicate 30 hours were left, for submissions…which brings us to 11:59 p.m. Friday!! Hopefully, based upon this evidence, Fiverr will do THE RIGHT THING and include our videos in the competition,… Read more »

I did submit mine same as you and was more upset than anything because I put so much time into it. I received a support email to send in my video and never got a reply. I am disappointed, I wanted to get a leg up on finally getting my brand out there. This would have helped a ton! Just means we need to find another avenue.
