Extra cash with social buy…
Social buy sites are online marketplaces offering tasks and services, otherwise known as micro jobs or gigs for a specific price. Many services, categories and sub-categories are offered and customers can search or find commission services for the skill that is required. Recently there has been much demand for micro-jobs and micro-jobbers, where tasks can take anywhere from 1 minute to fifteen minutes and longer to complete. Micro-jobs give freelancers the chance to add skills to their skill-sets as well as use the jobs as fill-ins when the market is slow. The basic concept is to receive a small fee for a small task such as online jobs, advertising, promotion and crowd-sourcing. Websites and apps can be tested or screening and voice recordings made and sometimes completing forms and surveys might be required. Micro-jobbers need to be able to work quickly to complete as many tasks as possible in order to make a living since most tasks are offered at below the minimum wage rate.
