It seems that everyone can use some extra money this time of the year, and the secret is working online. Whether you are buying gifts for loved ones, spending more time eating out with friends or even just travelling, the costs can add up pretty quickly. Wouldn’t it be nice to make a few extra dollars with your built-in talents?
Some people with “built-in” talents can make extra money by getting gigs, these gigs are spontaneous ones – I’m sure you have seen musicians playing on the street and getting donations from people that pass by as gigs. Other gigs are by setting up entire businesses and getting orders that way, which takes a lot of effort.
Maybe you think you aren’t talented enough tog et a gig – whatever that might mean. You would be surprised how easy it is to get your hidden talents out.
Below are a few websites that can help you with that, for you to make some extra money, or perhaps a whole new business might ignite out it of.
Fiverr is an online marketplace well known for providing professional services starting at $5. You can sell services such as video & animation, writing, programming, and much more. It’s mostly used for smaller gigs, so you won’t need to spend days working on projects before getting paid. Click here to sign up on Fiverr to start selling your services.
Uber, as many of you may already know, provides on-demand transportation service. If you have a car and can follow the training guidelines of Uber, you can start making money as a driver. Apply to become an Uber driver here.
Upwork is the product of the merger of Elance and oDesk, the two biggest freelance marketplaces online. Like Fiverr, you can sign up to start working on almost anything there from personal assistance, programming, lead generation, and much more. Upwork is often used for longer-term projects, and you can expect to be building a longer relationship with clients through the platform.
Another great platform for finding great work. PeoplePerHour is not as sophisticated as Upwork, nor as large of a marketplace, but it’s a great addition to applying for short to long-term projects. Never hurts to have more options!
There are much more websites, however, these are just a few to get you going. Technology has opened up an entirely new mechanism for this type of work and was something that just was not plausible before. Make sure to always make the best of it!
