Work At Home: Yes! I’ve Got A Job

Exquisite_kwrite.png (271×294)Opening up my freelancing projects site, I notice that I have got a new job. How excited I am, for I had been wanting to do all this since years! Now, I look carefully and read the job statement and try to figure out what exactly this client liked about it, that he at once awarded me the job…

Make money online using Micro Job Sites

johnny_automatic_bag_of_money.png (234×300)Micro job sites are one of the easiest and most reliable ways to make money online. Just grab this opportunity and make some money, don’t miss such an easy chance.

HOW IT WORKS? All you have to do is visit a Micro Job Site and register yourself. Create an account of your own, add your personal details and write a brief introduction about yourself, indicating your education and experience. Next, post a job statement or a gig, as it is commonly called, on that site. This job description must accurately describe what you are exactly able to do and how well you can do it. Normally, price estimates are quite low in the initial bid specially. You can start with as low as $5 for a task. Once a buyer comes and selects your gig, he thinks you are capable enough to handle his project, he will finalize terms with you and engage you through that site. That particular site will handle all the transactions between you and the buyer and may deduct a slight commission (around 10 – 20 %) from your fee. There is a high potential that the buyer likes your work and engages you further for his tasks and pays you accordingly.

A useful tip for you is to keep in mind the time that you will need to complete a particular task. If you bid for a work assignment for $5 and you can finish it off, in let’s say, 15 minutes, then you can end up with $20 for an hour, deduct $4 as the commission for the site and you are still left with $16 in your pocket. Not bad at all! If you have a faster rate, you can earn even more. But mind it, the more time you take to finish off a given task, or if it is more challenging and requires more mental effort from your side, you will end up with lesser amount per hour. So in this case, bid a little higher in the beginning so you may end up evenly.

WHAT IS IN DEMAND? The list of what is in demand in the cyber market is simply endless. Writing, DIY Crafts, Photography, Culinary skills, Programming and many more skills are in demand. Aim to go for tasks that people want these days, like blogging and posting on social interaction sites like Facebook and Twitter. The buyer may just not have the time so he may be ready to pay you for the work. All you have to do is to be sincere and reliable and work hard to satisfy the buyer.
