It Only Takes $5...
In case you haven't heard about it, I thought I'd share a little secret with you... Fiverr Fiverr.com is a brilliant website where you can find people to perform ''gigs'' for you and your business. Now obviously, you're paying $5, so don't expect the most brilliant purchase ever - but it is a fantastic tool, especially for a quick graphic design job, if you want human or pet billboards, or strange and bizarre people marketing your products in weird and wonderful ways. At the very least it can be entertaining to see what people will do for $5.
This certainly isn't the tool for everyone, but when you're starting out and you don't have a massive marketing budget, it can be a fantastic tool if done right.
Make sure you have a plan, you know exactly what you want and need and shop around, and be prepared for a couple of do-overs.
