Using GigBucks to Make Money Online
Here we are, ready for another challenge to help us make money from home. As you know – we’re working our way through 365 ways to earn an income from home. And today we’re gonna talk about GigBucks.com.
Some of you may have heard of Fiverr.com. It’s a site you can go to and be paid $5 for performing a task. Maybe it’s writing something, or making a video – there are so many different tasks that people offer. And they do them for $5. Which is all well and good – but ya know…. sometimes you have something to offer that might be worth more and SHOULD be worth more. But you’re stuck with just that $5 limit.
This is where GigBucks can change the game for many of us. (Check out my post, Make an Extra $1000 a Month – Idea List for more ideas to earn from home.)
GigBucks sets the pay scale from $5 to $50
With the pay increase of up to $50 – you can see where this can become a much more lucrative venture for your time and efforts. Maybe you’re someone that does genealogy or maybe you create logos – it’s wide open for all kinds of skills – and you can get paid more which makes those of us on the services end much happier.
There are many different categories of services – including writing, videos, programming, graphics and even silly stuff. Once you’ve decided what you’re going to offer – you can set up your profile (for free) and begin promoting it/you.
And if you decide there is a product you are wanting to sell – you can add shipping costs into your final cost to the seller. Almost like eBay in a way. So it’s made even easier for those wanting to sell an actual tangible item. Of course, many choose to sell something they can email or provide virtually. If it were me – that’s what I would do as well. I don’t want to have to mess with selling a product – I’d rather sell something I wrote or a report — but that’s because that’s what I am comfortable with. Others might have a lot of experience with selling products and finding wholesale items – even buying items in bulk.
Know the trends and what’s hot – well, that might be even more profitable. This is what I love about sites like Fiverr.com and GigBucks.com – there are so many doors that can be opened to regular people when they have a medium like these sites to monetize their skills. After looking at a few profiles on the site – I see there are many successful sellers and they appear to be making ”
a nice income — they just figured out their niche and provided 100% customer service and now they have their money making business
How Can This Be an Income?
Offer something worthwhile. Let’s start there. Maybe it’s super silly and unique. Maybe it’s something that really does take a trained effort or art – whatever you choose, once you start getting buyers, you’re little GigBucks business is going to live or die by feedback. Just like anything else. The more positive feedback you get – the more you’re going to see your business grow.
Put more simply – straight from the GigBucks site:
GigBucks is Perfect for So Many People
And here’s why…
There is no cost to you. There are no expenses really at all. You’re not having to set up an office somewhere, there is no real overhead. And when so many people are wanting to know how to make money fast – well, I’d say this has that real potential.
Maybe you have a pretty cool talent that you never really thought would take you anywhere, let alone make you some nice cash.
Here are a few samples of others that have set up their profile and are offering services or products (you’ll see that there are things you would have never dreamed of – yet they are making money….)
There are endless ideas. You just need to create YOURS and be the best at it. Even if you figured something you’re really good at – sold it for $20 a pop, you’d make $100 a week doing the service 5 times or selling the product 5 times. This is a way to totally make money online. Maybe you need special software if you’re going to make videos, or you have to buy the product you’re selling and then mark it up — I would think in the end, the cost of whatever you’re doing is really your time. How much is it worth?
It’s Not About Being a Freak
Someone might come to a site like GigBucks and think… these are all weirdos doing stupid stuff. No… give the site a good look over. There are regular people just like you and me that have been smart enough to figure out what they can offer, do that well and price it right. They are now making some nice cash with their online business. So don’t just make an assumption – look it over well. Then think about how you can get in on this action. This is one way to make money from home that really opens the boundaries and limits.
