Just a couple of months ago, I wanted to do very simple editing to a video clip I recorded but I didn’t know how to do it. I was hoping that someone could do it for me or guide me through it at least. I don’t even mind paying a small sum of money for someone to solve some technical glitch (real simple editing here. I know the professional video editing jobs are really tough and takes a lot of time and money!).
If only I knew about Flashgigs back then.
What is FLASHGIGS?
Flashgigs.com is a “micro-job” site which allows users to post a task called a “gig” that they are willing to complete for $9.90, at no cost. Buyers pay $9.90 for the service and the seller receives$8.50 as payment once the service is complete.
Gigs can be anything ranging from blog promotion, singing, crafts, compilation, to video creation. It is a great way to make money from home!
Flashgigs.com aims to create a community where talents for tasks too menial to engage a contractor for, are shared at an affordable cost for all! Have a talent? Have something you are extremely good at or it’s easy for you and not easy for others? Post in on flashgigs.com now and start truly working from home!
And remember, if you enjoyed the experience with a seller/buyer, remember to ‘like’ him/her, and give them a positive rating! ”
Look at some of the interesting jobs people are offering to do for $9.90! So interesting!
But what if I have a specific job in mind but no one is offering it?
Request for it on the website too!

SO HOW DOES IT WORK?
As a seller:
1. Come up with a cool idea, something you are extremely good at and able to provide at a micro level. example: excel files (remember: not everybodys as good as fast as proficient as you, theres always someone out there that requires a fast way out!), craft small customized jewellery, short videos, crazy stuffs like helping someone to express his love to a girl, professional advise, or even tap on your vast social network!
2. Post it on www.flashgigs.com
3. Share it on your social networks with our sharing tools
4. Start making money!
As a buyer:
1. Find a gig you like! and place your order!
2. Pay $9.90 via paypal/Credit card
3. Track your sellers work, exchange and communicate.
4. You will have 48 hours to ask for fixes from your seller
5. Provide feed back and review!
So easy right?! I was thinking of posting a job up on the site and do it for $9.90 but its at this point of time I feel so talentless because I don’t know what I can do. What can I do? Sad sad.
