Brick-and-mortar stores in particular, have been impacted by the pandemic in overwhelming numbers with no end in sight. Through “The Shift”, Fiverr is committing its support as these businesses look to rebuild and continue to help our economy and communities thrive.

“Businesses everywhere are grappling with the pandemic’s impact, and the thought of having to completely reinvent themselves online can feel like a daunting experience,” said Gali Arnon, Chief Marketing Officer at Fiverr.

“As a company that has served the needs of small businesses for over ten years, we are in a unique position to help. Regardless of their industry, size or budget, our platform has the services and the talent they need to ensure their digital presence is just as authentic and distinct as their offline brand. Our goal is to provide them with the tools and resources they need to come out on the other side of this pandemic better and stronger.”

For those who are new to creating a website, the matched talent will act as a guiding force throughout the process. It is a new, high-touch approach helping first-timers bring their online presence to life.

The Shift showcases real-life stories from companies across the globe about how they tackled this challenge. For example, Lavender, a newly launched telehealth company, had to make a dramatic pivot to their entire business which was due to launch at the beginning of the pandemic. 

Brighid Gannon, Co-Founder at Lavender said, “As a business that had to pivot and quickly get off the ground, we knew we needed experts to not only help bring us online but also help us increase our online traffic to reach new clients.

“Once we incorporated our new SEO strategy with the help of Fiverr freelancers, the results spoke for themselves. From May to June of 2020, Lavender saw a 400% growth in client bookings, which we hoped would hold into the next month. In July, Lavender grew 500%. More and more patients are saying they found us online, so our SEO is definitely working.”

Rooted, a direct-to-consumer indoor plant company, was forced to shut down its retail locations and sell their products exclusively online. Fiverr freelance talent, including a Shopify web developer, UX specialist and illustrator, helped Rooted introduce a dynamic new “Find Your Plant” quiz to their site, a lead generation tool to help prospects find the right products. Rooted’s e-commerce site, which accounted for 10% of their revenue before the pandemic, now accounts for all of the company’s sales.
