Fiverr is a great place to set up a profile and look for work. The difference between Fiverr and others is that with Fiverr you’re more sought after than doing the searching.

What to keep in mind with Fiverr is that people from all over the world use it. That being said, people on the eastern part of the world have expert skills for low prices, so don’t look to make a ton of money here only. Combine Fiverr with your other sources!
