What Fiverr is and How it Works
What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is a global marketplace that connects and brings together businesses and freelancers who offer digital services. It is a platform where people from all over the world come to buy and/or sell services of varying kinds. The platform bears Fiverr because the least service that can be requested or offered is pegged at $5.
The platform gives freelancers equal opportunities to showcase their talents to the world and earn money doing so. Business owners or individuals, on the other hand, can get their digital needs serviced and fulfilled by top talents from anywhere across the globe at much cheaper costs.
