Want to make a quick $5??!  Fiverr is a website where people will post random jobs and do each for $5. If you have a talent or just want to offer your services to do something crazy for $5 you may just have a nice steady stream of income going.

You can do anything from

– Design a Logo;
– Compose a Poem;
– Draw a funny personalized cartoon
– Record yourself stating the name of the buyer’s company

You do not even need a special talent but if you have a skill or anything unique you can offer your services to others as a definite good way to bring in extra money.  It has become pretty popular in the past year or so and even many bloggers use this as a way to get extra projects done.

If you are looking to start offering your services on Fiverr, here are a few tips to get you started on the right path.

1. Be polite. This is very important since polite sellers get good reviews and no one is going to buy your service again.

2.Be personalized. Why would someone buy your same ebook twice? If you can make it personalized to your buyer it might take more time for your gigs but you drastically increase the odds of having repeats customers.

3. Ask for Reviews: Reviews are everything and people do not want to risk buying your services without a review.You may want to add an extra service to get your first customers so they will write good reviews you’ll get some more business.

Do any of you have experiences with Fiverr?  If so I would love to hear your stories.  I have used Fiverr to do a few tweaks to Sea of Savings and I had a wonderful experience and will use it again. :-)

If you love animals there’s a growing demand for pet services, even if you have a full time time this could be something you do on the weekends or maybe stop by and check up on pets once you are off of work.  We use a pet sitter while we are away because it’s much less hassle and time then taking our cats to boarding and it’s less expensive to boot.  This is why many people have started to take this path while away and why this has become a booming business recently.

For example, if you work full time, advertise that your dog-sitting services are available on the weekends only. Caring for 2-4 pets per month could earn you can extra $120-$240!  You could also advertise your services by making up fliers and some business cards from Vistaprint.  You could also register yourself on Petsit.com or Care.com.   If you choose this as a full time option most people earn on average of $20,000 during their first year.

Garage sales can be a lucrative way and fast way to make extra cash.

I have been talking about ways to earn cash for Christmas however one sure way to save BIG is by getting gifts for FREE!  Yes there are lots of ways to get gifts for free! :-)

Recyclebank

Complete quizzes, watch videos, and more on Recyclebank to earn points. You can use these points to earn high-value coupons, magazine subscriptions, and gift cards.

There are typically opportunities to earn at least 200 to 400 points each month, meaning you could earn at least a gift card or two each year. You could also request magazine subscriptions for people who live in your home (at this time, it doesn’t appear like you can have subscriptions sent to addresses other than your own).

Mailbox Freebies

Sign up for the mailbox freebies that I post and some of these might work for a stocking stuffer or to make a fun gift basket for someone! There are free bath & beauty products, free hair products, free tea/coffee/cappuccino samples, and sometimes even free gift cards!

Swagbucks

I’ve already blogged about Swagbucks in this series, but I wanted to say it again here as it’s an excellent way to earn free gift cards for just a little bit of effort each day. If you’ve not signed up for Swagbucks, go find out all about it here.

MyPoints

You can earn points by reading emails, playing games, searching the web, or taking surveys through MyPoints. Cash in your points for free gift cards and more! Just by doing simple exercises each day, you should easily be able to earn at least a few gift cards each year.

Pampers Gifts to Grow

Just enter all the free Pampers Gift to Grow points throughout the year and cash them in for some gift cards at Christmas.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards

Have you signed up for Kellogg’s Family Rewards? You can earn points by inputting the codes from Kellogg’s products or by using the free coupon codes they are regularly releasing. You can use this points toward high-value coupons, magazines, toys, and other rewards.

Almost everyone has dabbled in baby-sitting at some point, but even as an adult this can bring in a pretty nice income stream if you do it on the side or full time.

Websites like SitterCity or Care.com are great resources for matching sitters with families.

Typically they say $12–$15 per hour is pretty standard, but to figure out how much is appropriate for your age and your area.  You can also go here and check the Babysitter’s Rate Calculator.

Spread the word by making some inexpensive business cards through Vistaprint, and by telling your child’s teachers, any friends who work in your community and with real estate brokers, who may work with families with small children who are new to town.

A wonderful idea would be to host a Parent’s Night out and plan a night of fun movies and games with kids.  Make it like a party atmosphere and parent’s would gladly pay you per child to enjoy a night out once in a while and you can loosen those strings a bit in your wallet. :-)
