You can hire someone to create a cool song to promote one of your new products. The options are less limiting than they may seem when it comes to using music to help boost your marketing efforts.
Create A Jingle For Your Company

The users on Fiverr will not only record a song for you, some will even write the lyrics for you.
Create An Awesome Song For Your Commercial
Licensing music to use for your commercial can be quite expensive. What if it didn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg to use some awesome music for your commercial? That’s where Fiverr can come in handy again. Instead of paying to license music you can get custom music created just for your commercial, for almost nothing.
Create A Viral Comedy
People love to see funny videos and listen to funny songs, so why not create your own parody song? Creating a parody song can help show your customers that you relate to them on a different level. Don’t think your funny enough to create your own? With Fiverr all you need to do is submit a subject and a song, then just sit back while someone creates a hilarious parody song just for you.
