Out of all the freelancing platforms on the web today, one of the most famous is Fiverr. Regardless if you’re a novice or an expert at what you do, on Fiverr you can earn a buck or two selling your talent to others. If you’re a great designer, you can ask $5 for a simple design from people. Have 100 clients and you’re $500 richer. The same goes with social media experts, writers, musicians, voiceover actors and basically every other profession on Earth you can work on from in front of your laptop. Some make millions like this.
Fiverr works by selling small tasks to freelancers from all over the world. Usually, the task is defined and the seller and buyer, they both know what they’re getting from it by the end of the deal. The client gets to pay a certain amount of money (five bucks, for example. Get it?) for a 500-word article, for example, while the writer enjoys the $5 for his small tasks. And when he’s done with the task at hand, he can go ahead and take on another one.
What is a microtask
A microtask is just this: it’s a task that can be completed within a certain, usually very small amount of time, for a small reward like some money or gratuities. When you’re at the other end of a microtask, you are most likely earning a few dollars, just like the freelancers who’re just starting out on Fiverr, for example. As time goes by, you get better and better with your time management and skills which means, you will be able to accomplish more tasks more rapidly.
Microtasking is extremely popular not just in freelancing, but also in other areas of life, such as games. You might’ve seen this happen with the games you’re enjoying. For example, in order to unlock a clue to move on to the next level, being stuck at the current one, you have to watch a 30-second ad. After the microtask has been completed, you get your clue and move on with the game. There’s one platform though that can help you earn money by playing games and doing microtasks from anywhere. And it’s on the blockchain. And, it’s getting huge!
