Now, for these who are cannot work full-time but wanted to use their extra time you can go for freelance websites that allows you to utilize your skills without being tied to an employer online.
Let us get started with freelance websites:
- Fiverr.com – the top freelancing/work online job website. With work ranging from $5 above you can start offering your skills such as doing voice overs, creating videos, data entry jobs, graphic/web design, social media, translation or any skill you can think of.
When I say any skill even the weirdest skill that you can think of. an example would be a seller called e_russett who screams peoples name in the woods and gets paid $5 for it and gets orders consistently. The technique to getting people to buy your gig is the uniqueness of your listing even if it is just data entry by adding an extra that wouldn’t cost much of your time will give you a higher chance of getting hired. i.e. “I will translate your document from English to Arabic and provide you an mp3 or video”
Now, for the question on how do I get paid. there are mainly 2 ways to get paid. by Paypal or Direct bank transfer. Some companies offer flexibility and will ask you what is your preferred payment method.
