Imaginably, you’ve traded on Fiverr once or twice. And you’re familiar with terms like ‘gig’, chances are you have one of your own. I’ll take a wild guess here and say that’s as far as your knowledge of Fiverr goes, luckily for you I’ve got some interesting facts you probably never knew about Fiverr.
- Fiverr is israeli : Yes, you read that correctly. Although, the common belief is that Fiverr is an american company, it isn’t. It was actually founded by two Israelis; Michael Kaufman and Shai Wininger. It has its headquarter in Tel Aviv, Israel and was founded February 1, 2010.
- Only two percent of sellers on Fiverr are over the age of 55: This might come as a surprise, but it’s true. Apparently, senior citizens aren’t much of a fan of Fiverr. Then again, who’s to blame them. My grandad hasn’t gotten the hang of “The Face-book” as he calls it.
- Fiverr is really popular: Since the beginning of 2013, Fiverr has been featured in the 100 most popular sites in the U.S. and top 200 in the world. Doesn’t seem like much right? But, considering the fact that there are over a billion websites in the world, it is quite the achievement to rank in the top 200.
- In doers we trust: Fiverr launched their multimillion Ad based campaign early 2017 with the slogan “In doers we trust”. I can’t help but say though, it sounds a tad familiar. The slogan has had its fair share of love and critism. But, it still stands valiantly on the website.
- Not everyone on Fiverr is normal: At number five is the most disturbing part of Fiverr, the fact that people will do the weirdest stuff for 5 dollars. Here’s a list of gigs on Fiverr: " I will dance to any song in a hotdog constume for 5$", “I will shout any thing you want in a banana costume for 5$”, " I will flirt with your boyfriend or husband for 5$" . Be cautious, that hot waitress could be a spy your wife or girlfriend hired to flirt with you to test your commitment . Just kidding! But you never know.
I hope you enjoyed my list and learning these new facts as I did. Thank you for reading.
