At first glance, everything is simple – we pay $ 5 for ….
The name itself is simple, like all brilliant – fiverr – $ 5 or 5-pound note in payment for service – buy / sell anything to anybody for $ 5, starting with the registration of a business card and ending with the execution of the traditional birthday song, and choice of singers is not limited to any age or nationality.
I really liked the button «surprise me» («Surprise me”), when clicked, do appear services that excite the imagination, such as “delivered a message straight from hell”
If you look at this company with the business side, Fiverr.com - this is a great platform for the commercialization of all types of services, a kind of eBay for the sale of services.
Israeli start-up Fiverr.com was founded in 2009 Micha Kaufman and Shai Wieninger and in just a few years has become one of the most visited websites in the world. One of the first companies assess fund Bessemer Venture Partners, which invested $ 3 million in January 2011. In total, the company had invested about $ 20 million, 15 in the final round in May 2012, when the company has already demonstrated its potential.
The Fiverr.com success is largely reflects the global trend towards micro-jobs.
Micha Kaufman has even developed its own methodology for building a successful brand in the network, which is based on an understanding of their target audience, “It’s not what you want to say is that you want people to hear.”
Users can monetize any of your talent, skills and opportunities they need just the right present.
And for that the platform has a lot of opportunities – the levels, ratings, recommendations.
Of course the company has many imitators, such as the company fourerr , which offers users to exchange services for $ 4, but in my view a sound approach and a deep understanding of the market for a long time now fiverr consolidate the position of leader.
