    I’ve used Fiverr a few times. I had a cover designed for one of my books (a disaster – won’t do that again), I had a press release sent out to 50 websites, i had some backlinks created for some websites, and some other stuff that I can’t remember right now. You are so correct in that it is VITAL to read the reviews of the person you are thinking of hiring. Some of the people on Fiverr are great. Some not so much. And be very, very clear about what you want done. Many of the “vendors” on Fiverr are from other countries, and their understanding of what they are offering may be very different from what you think you are buying. I will use Fiverr again, but I’m much more specific now. And sometimes I read the services being offered just for entertainment. There are some wacky things on there!
