Put Your Side Hustles On Auto-Pilot With The GigWalk App
If you’ve been looking for some side hustles to earn some extra money by just walking around and taking a look at things, you might have found just the app you’ve been looking for with Gigwalk. The company acts as a proxy between manufacturer’s and end-users and hires people to do walk-throughs of stores and other assorted tasks like making sure that product X is available at store Y. It’s not the most exciting thing in the world, but it can definitely help to fatten your wallet a bit.
Where Can I Get It?
Gigwalk can be downloaded from the usual suspects in the world of mobile applications. That is to say, you can get it for Android through the GooglePlay Store or your OSx device can receive it through the Apple Store.
How Does It Work?
Once you have the app you can look at different gigs, once you decide on one that looks right submit an application. If your application is accepted, then you’re going to be good to go and it’s time to get to work. You’ll receive detailed instructions on how to complete the task.
Once you’ve completed it, it’s time to get paid.
How Do I Get Paid?
Payment will come in through Paypal, so make sure you have an active and enabled account as well as a way to access the money when it comes time to make your withdrawal. This is pretty much the same as any other kind of paid work that uses Paypal, so you’ll need either a prepaid Paypal debit card or a bank account linked up in order to use your money in the real world.
Even if you don’t have either, you can still use your money online in places like eBay, although you’ll have to develop a workaround if you’re planning on using it through Amazon.
But What Will I Be Doing?
What you’ll be doing depends, of course, on the individual gig that you’re working on. For the most part, you’ll be starting with relatively simple things, like taking pictures with geolocation enabled in order to make sure that the products a company has are available on the shelves.
As you complete more gigs, your “Gigwalker rating” will increase, allowing you to do more and more advanced gigs for higher rates. While you probably won’t be able to make it a full-time job, most people can probably find the time to add an extra hundred bucks to their accounts by the end of the week.
Like any of these crowdsourcing applications, you’ll be better off using them if you live in a large metropolitan area as there will be more work available. In this case, however, you may still be able to get a decent amount of work provided you aren’t living in a shack twenty miles from civilization.
Since you’ll get paid more for higher-end gigs, and your application will show your rating, be sure to be professional and thorough whenever you perform a task in order to maximize your earning potential.
Most of us are always looking for different ways to diversify our incomes, it’s just a reality of the modern economy. Gigwalk allows you to do just that, and you might just be able to get that little bit of extra financial security you’ve been craving for so long.
Give it a shot, the worst that can happen is a couple of wasted hours and who knows? You might have just found the perfect way to be able to pencil in a few extras to your budget.
