FiverrAt Fiverr.com you can find someone to do just about anything for $5. Do you need someone to draw a caricature of your face? How about a few seconds of voice over work? Perhaps you're in need of a video of a bird flying around a picture of your company's logo. You can find it all on Fiverr.
A few days ago, I signed up for an account on Fiverr, and searched for an artist who had good ratings and matched my needs for the job. I answered a few questions and described what I wanted. Then I used PayPal to send my $5. It only took a few minutes to place my order. According to the information on the site's dashboard for my profile, my logo should be ready sometime this weekend. I'm looking forward to receiving the product and sharing it with you. If I'm satisfied, I'll use the logo from now on. I'll also let you know who did the work in case you want to use the same person on your own project.
Fiverr is not the only outsourcing site that has recently emerged. You might also want to take a look at tenerr.com and Elance.com, especially if you need help on larger, more intensive jobs.
