Startup Experiments on Fiverr.. or how I became a $5 mentor


Recommended Posts

About a year ago, I registered on Fiverr, where you are able to sell your skills starting 5 dollars. I decided to offer my job for startups and people who had ideas, so I sent some bullet points upon their requests as a hint to proceed.
Exceptional money making was not the target of course, because if I spend only one hour for one single question, it takes six-seven hours to make the average Hungarian salary (around 1000 dollars before tax). Least to say, I would have to invest four-five times more on marketing, to promote my service and have proper
number of clients come and go.

So this was only an experiment.
However, I used to work with tons of Hungarian and other start-ups, entrepreneurs and think tanks from the CEE region, I was interested in other continent’s ideas and problems. It was also a question for me, that with my CEE knowledge, if I was able to help in global cases or not, and if the answer was yes, would there be positive outcome measure?

Hungarian is an extraordinarily complex language. If you’re already in the business of helping businesses, why not position yourself as a Hungarian expert? Help non-Hungarian businesses to tap into the Magyar Market etc. Don’t forget to flash your contact list.
