There are now hundreds of ways to make money online and, while most of them are never going to make you rich, they can offer good ways of getting a bit of extra cash and even building your experience in an area of work you’re interested in. These are the sorts of benefits that you can get from Fiverr and other, similar websites. Read on to find out more.
What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is a fairly simple concept. It’s a website where users post details of things that they are willing to do for $5. This could include things such as ‘I’ll write an article about making money on Fiverr for $5’ or ‘I’ll give you three top SEO tips for $5’. You can tailor what you offer to do according to your skills and experience. Then, if someone selects something that you have posted, you keep up your end of the bargain by doing whatever it was you said you’d do, and then you get $5 for it.
This is not really a website to make huge amounts of money on, but it is quite good for earning quick, small amounts of cash on a regular basis if you have skills to sell and know what you’re doing. Plus, if you get a good reputation for giving good value for money on Fiverr, people will be more likely to select you when they are in need of something, meaning that you could boost the amount of money you are able to earn.
There are lots of different things you can offer to do on Fiverr. There are lots of writing offers, for instance, as well as lots of people offering to do product reviews or test websites for $5. There are also some quirkier advertisements on the site, such as people offering to sing Happy Birthday, draw pictures of your pet or send you straw decorations through the post. This means that there are loads of opportunities available and other people also post things that they’d like from other people (such as ‘I’m looking for someone to give me cloud computing advice’ or ‘I’d like some cupcake recipes’). If you find a request that you could fulfil, it could make you money.
What other sites are there?
As well as Fiverr there are some other, similar sites that also offer you the opportunity to make money by offering to do things for other people.
For instance, TenBux is a similar site that gives you the chance to make either $5 or $10 for doing various microjobs. Zeerk is another popular website that gives you the opportunity to make up to $25 for every gig you complete, meaning that it offers you even more money-making opportunities.
Other similar websites include GigHour, where you post the gig you’re willing to do then sit back and wait for someone to ask you to do it. GigBucks gives you the chance to earn between $5 and $100 per gig, depending on what you do and UpHype can earn you $8, $16 or $24 per gig. They’re all definitely worth checking out if you’re looking to make some money through the things you do best.
