Make Money Online With Micro Job Sites – From $2 to $100!
What are you willing to do for $5? That’s the tagline of the popular micro jobs website called Fiverr. So basically Fiverr is a website where people post random jobs and do each for $5. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s one of the easiest way to make money online since you get paid for what you love to do.
Outsourcing is something unavoidable since you can’t do all the jobs by yourself. Of course there are Freelance websites like eLance, oDesk, vWorker, Guru, Freelancer etc. But it’s a mess as it requires registration, credit card verification, phone verification, and sometimes tax forms as well.
Micro job websites are very simple to use. If you register as a Seller and want to offer a service then you need to create a “Gig” (a service). If your Gig is approved by Fiverr (let’s say Fiverr) then it will be published on the Fiverr website under the chosen category. When someone orders your Gig, you’ll be notified. Once you complete the job your Fiverr account will be credited with $4 after deducting the Fiverr fee of $1.
If you want to buy something then find the Gig (use the Fiverr search or categories) and order it. Pay Fiverr $5 via Credit Card, PayPal or using your Fiverr balance (if any). You can track seller’s work progress and communicate with him/her. Once the job is finished Fiverr transfers the money to the seller. If the required service is not available on Fiverr then you may also request a Gig by completing “I’m looking for someone who will” form. Make sure that you check the ratings and feedbacks of the seller before you place the order.
Fiverr was launched in 2010 and it is so popular that it has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, CNN Money, NBC News, Yahoo! Finance, Wired, TechCrunch and more. So you may wonder why I’ve reviewed it now? Well, I’m just amazed at what people are willing to do for $5.
Here are few Fiverr Gigs which I find very interesting…
Okay. But how can you actually make money with Fiverr?
Like any other online marketplace Fiverr is also dominated by few people. So if you want your Gig to be noticed by others then make sure that it’s something unique as shown above. The Gig title says it all hence make it a catchy one so that it never goes unnoticed by anyone. Promote your Gig on Social Networking Sites like Facebook and Twitter so that your own friend may become your first customer. Also, you can add a video explaining the Gig to people so that it may convert at a higher rate.
Now what if you don’t have any service to offer? You can still make money by reselling. Buy Gigs on Fiverr and sell the same on another micro job website at a higher rate. Read (Fiverr Alternatives / Clones You Probably Don’t Know).
Wait, is $5 is not enough for you? If not, then you can try some Fiverr alternatives like Gigbucks, SERClerks, and Zeerk where you can earn up to $100 per Gig.
