5 Ways Your Church Can Benefit from Fiverr.com
If you aren’t familiar with fiverr.com, it is a service based site where a multitude of services are offered, all starting at $5.
From graphic design, to digital marketing, to language translation- Fiverr has it all, from professionals and amateurs who are looking at creating a diverse portfolio.
As a church, there are endless ways you can utilize this service, but we will focus on 5 here.
Unless you are a larger church, you probably do not have a graphic designer on staff. And unless you know someone, you are left paying what can sometimes be a high price. On Fiverr, you can find a variety of artists, sample their work, and have a baseline (typically they are $5).
2. Digital Awareness
We live in the internet age. Any person that comes to your church has already googled you, checked your Facebook page, and probably gotten frustrated with your website. With seemingly as many churches as websites, you only get one shot to grab a person’s attention. With Fiverr you can hire professionals ranging from Social Media to SEO. One “gig” I found promised to push the buyer to number 1 on Google in 40 days. For $5. I think every church could benefit from that!
When I was working at my last church, any time we had an event we had to come up with some catchy copy to not only explain what was happening, but grab attention, and be short. It typically meant hours if not days or brainstorming. However, with Fiverr, you can delegate the wording to a pro, and just send over the information!
Again, unless you work for a big church, you don’t have a designer on staff. This is always especially troubling when it is time to search for Sermon Bumper videos. But with Fiverr, you can find what you are looking for, for a low price.
5. Endless Possibilities
There is even a category on Fiverr called “fun and bizarre”, where you can find just about anything! Do you need a celebrity impersonation for a sermon illustration? Fiverr has it. Need a trivia game created? Fiverr has it. Need a guy to do a backflip while having your writing on his fists (who caresnwhy- there’s no judgement on Fiverr!) Fiverr has it.
Fiverr might not be what you need for every project, but more than likely, if will suit your needs every now and then. We all get overwhelmed and need to delegate a few things, and Fiverr provides that opportunity.
