Today I stumbled upon this rather awesome website called Fiverr.
The idea basically is to give someone $5 for a specific "gig" (task/service), sounds not so special right?
Let me present you with some examples to show just how great this website is:
You'll find pretty much everything a person is willing to do for $5.
Hell if you're desperate to have more Twitter/Facebook/Instagram/Whatever followers, you can even buy those.
Just make sure to sort by "High Rating" whenever you are considering buying something.
Everything above 4 stars, with a rating above 90 and at least 100 votes is my personal criteria for something being legit.
This makes the whole paying-up-front thing a bit less scary and risky.
