But, a fiver, a Lincoln, a fin, a fiver. Now, that's a different story - especially at the website known as fiverr.com.
"I will write an excellent radio commercial for your business for $5," proclaims user great_talk. He continues: "I've been in the radio industry for 25 years and can write commercial radio copy quite well. Visit my website for more info and samples. If you need a radio commercial produced, click here and order."
Five bucks? Yes. Everything at fiverr costs five dollars. People offer services of all kinds in a myriad of categories but the price is always the same. But, how about the quality? Well, the feedback left at great_talk offer page looked pretty good when I viewed it: "Good Stuff and delivered on time," said one customer. "Excellent script," said another.
You'd be amazed how many radio-oriented services are being offered at any give time.
"I will broadcast your company real estate listings fsbos [for sale by owners] market your business live on my radio show for $5," hawks another listing from mariacaudle who has a program called Podcast Real Estate & Business Radio News.

Maybe you already have a radio show or podcast of your own and you're looking for some production value.

We will give you multiple takes of your lines. " Sounds like a deal.
