Fiverr. This is a popular website that can be helpful for freelancers with actual skills. Know something about digital animation? You can work for someone who doesn’t and pick up some extra cash. But if you just have a brain but few skills, you can offer to do web research for someone, and maybe someone will hire you. Just know that you probably aren’t going to get rich doing these jobs. The website’s tag line is, “Freelance services for the lean entrepreneur,” which tells you right away the pay is – meh. Plus, the website’s name comes from the fact that many people work for $5 per task (but, yes, you can ask for more). Still, if you get a lot of gigs, it can add up.
