Would you go all Marilyn Monroe for a friend’s birthday for $5? Or maybe even take the ultimate blame at the party? Well, someone will be rakin’ it in for those services-rendered. And they’ll be doing it through Fiverr.com, a new marketplace site for anything and everything that could possibly be worth a good-old Abe Lincoln. Think of an all-for-$5-Etsy, of the mostly-intangible, with a little Twitter-aesthetic thrown in—that’s Fiverr.
Fiverr gigs range from the very practical, like resume-writing or getting a HTML bug fixed, to the not-so-practical-but-totally-worth-it, like someone performing a “ridiculous and passionate” acapella song of your choice or designing “the hell out of something” for you.
Search “Brooklyn,” and land a five-hour tour of Bushwick. And for Father’s Day? You’re covered there too. We haven’t yet taken part of Fiverr’s endless list of offerings, but we have always wanted our own low-fi indie-pop anthem…
What would you do for $5? We won’t pay you, but tell us anyway.
