How Fiverr Can Help You on the Way to Publication

How Fiverr Can Help You on the Way to Publication

Fiverr is a global website that acts as an online marketplace where buyers and sellers can exchange money for gigs (tasks/jobs). The name Fiverr comes from the fact that the starting cost of all jobs is $5. The main categories of gigs offered on Fiverr are graphics & design, digital marketing, writing & translation, video & animation, music & audio, programming & tech, business, and fun & lifestyle.
Even professional authors need help in getting their books reading for publication and then marketing them, but unlike professional authors, not everyone has the budget to go out and hire an agent or a manager. You might be planning to publish your book yourself as a Kindle book and not have the funds to hire the professional to make your book the best it can be. However, if you have $5 you can hire an individual to perform specific tasks to make your book better.
People might not always judge a book by its cover, but a good cover can certainly draw a reader in. On Fiverr, there are many college students majoring in art and graphic design who have the artistic talent to take your dream cover image and make it a reality. For a cover image most Fiverr sellers charge $5-$10, based on the amount of desired detail, and for an additional fee most are more than willing to draw pictures that can be included in your book. Would you like to be able to show your readers what your characters look like?
Everyone makes mistakes; it is simply an unpleasant fact, but readers are not always forgiving of typos and grammar errors that disrupt their enjoyment of an otherwise enticing story. While it is always possible to do your own proofreading, it can be difficult for a writer to catch their own mistakes because a writer will often see what they expect to see. One trick is to read your whole book backwards, but that takes time and willpower. Instead, you can easily hire a Fiverr seller who is an experienced editor with a background in proofreading who you can pay to do it for you. Fiverr editors and proofreaders generally are willing to negotiate their fees based on the number of pages and how detailed you want them to be. You can choose if you want the seller to find spelling and grammar mistakes or if they should also report on any parts of the book that do not make sense to them. They can even offer suggestion on information that could be added or removed from the book to improve the way it reads.
Book Trailer
If you really want to get your book out there in the digital community, there is nothing like a book trailer with animated characters or live actors. As an author, you might not know how to create a book trailer with digital effects which is designed to wow the audience, but there are many college students that do. Would you like to have a video on YouTube that shows the absolute best of your book?
The services offered by Fiverr sellers in relation to marketing your book are diverse and easy to personalize based on your specific needs. Perhaps you would like your book promoted on social media or have promotional flyers posted at colleges or community buildings; no matter what you desire, the sky is the limit and if you can imagine it there is someone who can make it happen!
