Writing in the sand and a personalize surf beach messagePosted by Feb26, 2011 Comments /span>
Well its been a while since our last blog. I thought i would mention the latest thing we have been experimenting with. Recently someone turned us on to the website www.fiverr.com . Basically its a website where you bid off something you would do for $5 such as video a short skit or taking a personalized photo as well as a variety of odd and crazy ideas. Its hard to explain so you’ll have to just check it out.
So as a kind of fun experiment we put up 2 gigs on fiverr.
The first one is write your message in the sand then we take a picture of it and send it to you. This idea actually came from one of our guests about 5 weeks ago.
The second one is we film ourselves on a whitewater wave and announce your message or whatever and film it then send the short 12-15sec video.
Well the reaction has been far greater then we could have imagined. Almost every day now we are filling orders at the beach. It’s not that much money since since fiverr takes a dollar off every order, so we only get 4 bucks per surf video or writing in sand, but it pays the weekly beer bill. We actually got enough orders of writing your message in the sand that we decided to make it its own website.
You can check it out at writing in sand You never know, it could end up being a good little side business.
