Tips on Creating Your Gig

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 124

Creating a unique gig for a micro job site can be a great way of earning a little extra money without having to search for a regular second job. What should you take into consideration when creating gigs, though, and how can you make the most of them?

The answer lies in properly assessing all your traits, finding out what most people want, and creating a new type of micro job that would spark up their interest. Even when you simply go with mainstream micro gigs, properly organizing your time, and forming a good plan can effectively make the difference between success and failure.

Assess Your Qualities and Lacks

The first thing you need to do is assess all your qualities and lacks. When creating their gig, some people prefer to go with what they like, instead of keeping an account of what they are actually good at. While they may have a blast doing a specific job, the quality of their work may be questionable if they don't have the necessary skill for it.

What you need to do, therefore, is write down a list of all your lacks and qualities you know of. Now, this list has to include skills, as well as personality traits, since various jobs may require a specific type of mindset.

For instance, even if you are a good programmer, you might have a difficult time paying attention to details, or you might lack the patience required to deal with complex tasks. As a result, when shaping your gig you have to take these details into account, as well, besides assessing your technical skills.

Find Out What People Want

You can't create your gigs if you don't know what people want. If you have a choice between turning an eccentric hobby into a micro gig or posting a job based on requests made by people who are actually willing to pay for that work, the latter will prove to be much more profitable.

You can find a lot of information on various micro job websites where not only the workers, but the employers can post requests, as well. Just browse around, and see what people are looking for the most, and you'll already have a good idea of how you can put your skills to practical use.

You Need Two Plans

It's not always enough to simply form a strategy about how to organize your time, and provide timely feedback to your clients. If you just focus on the task at hand, you may be able to earn a few dollars, but without expanding your view, you won't get very far with your endeavors.

Especially when you plan on creating micro gigs and jobs for a long term period, you will need both a short term plan to help you deal with deadlines and provide a constant quality level when it comes to your work, and a long term plan that would include the possibility of expanding your work, and broadening your horizons concerning the concepts you use.

Be Proactive

If you want to earn a lot of money with a micro gig, you will have to be willing to meet the demands of your clients, no matter how difficult some may be. Once people start seeing that you're doing a good job, more and more of them will be applying for your services.

The only way of not losing your perspective when you're faced with a large work load is to be proactive. Determine exactly how much time you can spare for your micro jobs per day, and work as intensely as you can during that period.

If you keep all these tips in mind, you might have a good chance of becoming successful without working too hard on acquiring new skills. This way, after you create your gig, you will then be able to master it and provide high quality services for all your clients.
