Not Enough Time in Your Online Day...Outsource Tasks!

If you are stuck in an online rut because you do not have enough time to get everything done, have a to-do list a mile long, cannot figure out some aspect of social media, or just have a general online malaise right now...do not fret! There is an answer to some of your online ailments and all it will cost you is $5. Yes, only $5.

What is In Your Real Estate ToolbeltNo magic elixir here but I do have a cure that is incredibly easy and cheap to use. That cure is Fiverr. Pretty much whatever you need done online you can find someone on Fiverr willing to do it...mostly at $5 an item.

I have used this service countless times for a variety of items (data entry, graphics creation, headers/banners, infographics, automating some SM functions, research, etc.) and have been very pleased nearly every time. Hey, even on the rare occasion it has not worked out I have received my $5 back.

Here is an outstanding article about how real estate agents can use Fiverr by RE blogger Tyler Zey that shows you 4 key things you can use Fiverr for. Tyler also provides the Fiverr contact information for the folks he has had the most success with. Want to have some infographics or slideshares created...no problem with his handy list! 

If you want a little variety, below are a few other sites that are similar to Fiverr that you can check out. I have used oDesk (can be pricy) with good success and my hubby has tried PeoplePerHour a few times:

   Elance                     FiverUp Freelancer
   GigBucks                     Guru PeoplePerHour
   TenBux                     Upwork (oDesk)  

When I need something specific that is not already in my real estate toolbelt, and I do not have the time to learn or perform the task, I scoot over to Fiverr and always find someone willing to help. Look around, I know you will find what you seek!

Start today and find someone willing to tackle something on your online to-do list. Did I mention it will only cost you $5 too.  ;-)

Happy Outsourcing Rainers!

Love Fiverr!  They created the side bar on my Twitter page but I've changed it since.  It was easy!

Good to hear you have had good results on Fiverr, Jan. I have used the site for many tasks the last few years too.

Excellent suggestions, and admitting we need help with the never-ending list of tasks is the first step.  You've make taking the second step easy.

So true!  I think I shall re-explore Fiverr for a few of the tasks you mentioned. Also, I received an email that oDesk was having a sale on their start-up costs.

Very sweet of you...thanks for inclusion in your weekly series, Kathy.

Christina: oDesk might be worth exploring with the sale ongoing.

Worth sharing this one, Margaret. It can really help those who need tasks done but do not have the time to accomplish them.

Anita Clark - being control freak, I prefer not to outsource, however, keeping in mind that I get everything done the way I want it and only for $5, nothing wrong trying it out few times.

Gary: Come back and tell us how it worked out for you.

Praful: Hard to beat for the price. You could have infographics or even a few slideshares built. It is a good way to try out a new marketing method before going all-in.

Bob: If you can think it up you can probably find someone willing to do it...often very cheaply.
