There’s always something to howl about

$5 Real Estate Marketing At Fiverr.Com!

I’m giddy. Really giddy.

The other day a friend told me about Fiverr.Com.

The first thing I noticed on the site was that some dude would be willing to write my URL on his arm and sport it for a week…. for only $5.

So, I gave it a shot, and Here’s the result…

Real Estate Leads

Then, I noticed someone would actually write a jingle for my little company… for only $5. I wasn’t expecting much, but had to give it a try of course.

Here’s the little jingle that has me trip tripping right now:

LINK TO THE JINGLE I JUST PAID $5 FOR. [compliments of this guy.]

and I’ve got a Twitter background on the way for the same price…. $5!

Where Are You Going With This?

Yep, that’s the $5 question of the moment… where are you going to go with this? I can’t wait to see other ways that the Bloodhounds around here to promote (or get cheap labor for) their ventures using this awesome resource.

But in the meantime…the ability to find quick inspiration for fun goofy marketing ploys aside, here’s the biggest way that I can think of for Real Estate heads to benefit from Fiverr.Com on the quick:

Say you invest $20, and get 4 jobs done via Fiverr.Com.

Then say you’re happy with a few of the results… Could you see hiring the provider to do more stuff for you on an ongoing per-task basis within your practice. Not assuming it’ll always be $5, but at least you’ll have the opportunity to interview a few different folks with a few different skill sets quickly…re-utilizing the services you like, as you need them. Seems a much better alternative to hiring a full or part time assistant who you’ll have to train and manage?

[Please do send me a copy of your jingle once you have it made :) ]

And here’s mine again… something about the douche in me can’t help but post this link everywhere I can right now :) –> LINK TO THE JINGLE I JUST PAID $5 FOR.

      Neither link would actually play the jingle for me.

      Jeff…. It should open up a new window, and play direct from amazon.com storage?

      Will try to figure it out… in the meantime, you can here it live over at my home page…

      It takes me to the page, and shows me the ‘podcast’ bar ready to go, but clcikin’ the ‘play’ arrow doesn’t work. I”ll go to your site. thanks

      I tried going to the site but I keep getting this message,

      “503 Service Unavailable – No server is available to handle this request.”

      Perhaps they should charge $6.00 per job and increase their hosting plan. :)

      Joe,

      That’s a huge bummer, because I’m linking to it on my hosting account through amazon… :(

      Ok, just got on and it’s REALLY cool Ryan. My personal favorite of the day: “I will scream at the library and send it to you for $5″ :D

      Wow, this is crazy! I can’t believe you paid a guy $5 to put your website on his arm…wait…yes I can. Thanks for sharing this! It looks like there are actually some pretty good values here for $5.

      @Jeff – The commercial worked on my Mac mini, maybe he fixed it

      What a phenomenal idea and loved your jingle! (Worked fine for me.) I plan to visit the website and see what kind of ideas I can come up with. Thanks for sharing.

    10. Brooke July 1st, 2010 1:06 pm

      I LOVE the jingle.. I have a $5 video testimonial in the works – will share when applicable.

    11. Joe July 1st, 2010 2:50 pm

      I placed an order for a guy to make a photo look 3D. If it looks good, our client’s newest listing would get a kick out of having the only 3D listing photo on our mls. :)

    12. Brian Block July 1st, 2010 3:33 pm

      Some pretty cool ideas and some really really out there for $5. I’ve seen this site before, but forgot all about it.

      Nice jingle!

    13. Alex Cortez July 2nd, 2010 1:54 am

      Cool jingle. And at 5 bucks, it was worth every penny.

    14. Jay Banks July 2nd, 2010 2:12 pm

      That jingle is really good, sounds pretty professional. It’s amazing what some people would do for only $5, but what seems even more amazing to me is how good they are at what they do – at least it seems so. Maybe I’m going to give it a shot as well!

    15. Danny July 5th, 2010 4:04 pm

      Pretty creative. Glad to see marketing ideas outside the box.

      Interesting timing, Ryan – my business partner and I just used fiverr.com to redo a phone queue for a small business we run on the side. We gave him the format and text, asked him to add a unique twist in option #3, and in less than 24 hours we had a great voicemail message.

      Best $5 we’ve spent in a while.
