Gig Sites

Another way that you can make money for college at home  is with gig sites. These are web sites that let people put up ‘gigs’ that they will do for $5.00, or some other amount of money. The best one- and the only one I’d recommend using- is Fiverr.com.

If you have  a talent- say, writing well, making things out of felt, singing, or dancing- you can create a gig on Fiverr using that talent. People who want you to do the gig will pay you $5 ($4 after Fiverr takes their cut), and you will do the gig for them. I’ve made almost $60 writing and editing content for people on Fiverr, and I’ve barely been doing it for a month.

Doing gigs on Fiverr is a crucial part of my plan to make money for college at home. In between calls for LiveOps, I take Fiverr gigs.  I can also do them in between my classes. You can set your own deadlines, and be your own boss.

One of my favorite things about Fiverr is how it matches people who need work done with people who can do the work.  You can request someone to do a gig for you, or find a gig that you need done.

If you’re interested in using Fiverr, here’s a link.

This is one of my Fiverr gigs. I will write 1,ooo words of content for you, for $5.

Call Centers

The main source of my income is a call center called Liveops. Liveops is this work-from-home call center that sells things off of infomercials. It’s really cool, and it pays 25 cents a minute. I average about $30 bucks a day, just sitting, taking calls, and surfing the internet in between.

Of course, that’s not enough to meet my daily quota, so I need to do other things in between calls than randomly surf.  But it’s the main source of my income, and I’m really glad I work here.

The main thing to remember, when you’re working at a call center, is to keep your cool. You have to talk to a lot of people, every day, and some of them get angry at you. If you don’t think you can take that, you’re going to want to look for other opportunities.

The second thing is patience. You’re going to be sitting and waiting for calls for a very long time, and then talking to people who might not understand you.

The last thing is that you have to be a self-starter. You have to schedule yourself blocks every week, you have to remember when you work, and you have to find productive things to do during the breaks.

If you can do all these things, you’re well on your way to earning money for college at home.
