How To Make Extra Cash Doing Tasks

How To Make Extra Cash Doing Tasks

In a fast changing world which is relying on mobile technology more and more the way we work is also changing. Mobile apps such as Gigwalk and TaskRabbit are redefining the way we work. These platforms provide a platform for companies and individuals to post tasks that they wish to get done. In the case of Gigwalk, the price is fixed. On TaskRabbit, it varies, but most tasks take the bidding model whereby prospective employees (TaskRabbits) make offers to the employer, and the employer chooses who to use. Tasks vary in complexity and duration. Some are as simple as taking a photo, buying dog food for a neighbor or mopping a floor in a department store. Others are more complex and can go on for longer periods of time.

The type of work posted also varies significantly regarding qualifications. Some are simple jobs that anyone can do while others require specialization. These sites are perfect for anyone who can’t find work and needs to make money, or anyone who already has a job but needs to make extra income. Here are some tips on how to maximize your opportunities of getting tasks on these sites.

Be professional

When you apply for gigs, be professional. Your application should be like a short cover letter which should convince your client to hire you.

Be mindful of the instructions

A gig may require specific skills and may have very specific application instructions such as “write ‘banana’ at the top of your application.” Take note of these when applying and tailor the application to the instructions.

Be honest

Be honest when applying for a task. If you’re hired and you’re unable to deliver, you’ may get a bad review which may hurt your chances in future gigs.

Be efficient and effective

Make sure you do the work to the best of your ability and try to deliver as quickly as possible. This results in good reviews.
