$50 on Fiverr – Facebook Ads

This is the first in our $50 on Fiverr series, where we try to get our online marketing up to scratch by spending our ENTIRE budget on Fiverr, before we start you might want to read the introduction.

I hate writing Ad copy, so this was priority #1 for any marketing campaign, let’s get some decent adverts written.

Selecting a Fiverr Ad


After a quick search for ‘Facebook Ad writing,’ I found this guy, I will be honest, after looking at that picture I was sold.

Look at the confidence.

Anyone that can look into the camera like that and say “Oh yes, I can handle it” has got my money.

Let’s check out those packages

One ad for $5 fits well within the budget and a 3 day turnaround time is more than acceptable.


Ordering Process

After selecting my industry I was asked to supply my URL (https://littlewarden.com) and a brief description of my service

Little Warden is a daily check service to monitor the tedious things about running a website, things like domain / SSL expiry, redirect checking, robots.txt change monitoring and content change detection


I’m pleased to say that Vito (at least I think that’s his name) delivered within the time period suggested and delivered a DOCX doc full of suggestions.

You can get this at Littlewarden_FB


Whilst the Ads weren’t for me, I was happy with the quality of them if I was targetting a less technical audience, Vita also went the extra mile to supply TWO ads for the price of one!.

I also love the idea of Making your website happy.

Next Steps

I think I may need to bite the bullet on this and get in some PPC experts to try and lend me a hand. Although with everything in the news at the moment, mayybbee we should lay low on Facebook for a little bit.

$50 on Fiverr – It begins.

At Little Warden, we don’t have tonnes of VC investment money or a large bankroll for a big marketing stunt.

As you can tell by our standard WordPress theme, we have a LITTLE budget for things and so we had an idea (or at least Dom did, Heather wanted no part in this)

So here is the plan, I’ve withdrawn $50 of the Little Warden marketing budget and we are going to put it all on Fiverr*

Here’s what we need;

  • Facebook Ad Copy
  • Google Adwords Copy
  • A bit of keyword research would be nice
  • Some social media promotion (that isn’t buying followers or links)
  • A shareable article of content
  • Lets chuck in an SEO Audit whilst we are here

Lets set some rules;

  • You can only spend $5 on each item, none of these ‘upgrades’ or special packages $5 that’s the budget.
  • No matter what the quality, no negative reviews, we are trying to write a funny article not ruin someone’s business.
  • Everything that gets delivered will be posted and available to download by our massive blog audience

The orders are placed and some have already returned, you may want to subscribe to the blogtwitter feed or facebook page to keep an eye out.


* This is an affiliate link as I’ve got to make the money back somehow, I’m certainly not going to make it back on this marketing campaign.

Change History now active!

Add this to the list of ‘things we should have done quicker than 8 months after we launched’

You can now view a complete change History of the checks on sites you are monitoring.

Nothing much else to add here right? Just go and use it!

Force a country with our daily checks

A few months ago we introduced GeoRedirect checking to allow you to check a URL from a specific country and ensure that the redirects work.

Now we allow you to force a specific country to do the other checks.

The logical question to ask would be why didn’t you launch this at the same time as the GeoRedirect changes and to be honest, I don’t have a good answer for that.

But it’s launched now!
