monetizing it for extra cash flow.
Putting Your Handiwork
Skills to Use
Are you particularly skillful in a craft or have extra time to help someone out with a chore? It’s never been easier to make money in your free time.
Even on a military schedule, these apps will allow you to put your skills to use and begin making money on the side. Each company is expanding everyday, so check out their location coverage to see if you can get started in your area!
When signing up for each website, you’ll be asked for your name, email, metro area, birthday, and mobile phone number. You also need to upload a valid government ID and clear photo for your profile.
Each app will ask you to choose what tasks or services you’d like to complete, and you’ll set your rate for each one. The sites provide recommendations on average price rates, but you’re free to charge more or less depending on your skill level and the area you live in.
With any other service, take the time to set up a detailed, well-written profile demonstrating your skills and capabilities. Pitch yourself well but realistically – remember, you’re only as good as your reviews say you are.
It can take a few days to a week for your application to be reviewed and approved. You’ll be invited for an interview process, either in person or by phone (see below), and once approved you’re ready to start hustling.
