According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, “gig workers are independent contractors or freelancers who typically do short-term work for multiple clients. The work may be project-based, hourly or part-time, and can either be an ongoing contract or a temporary position.”
Driving for Uber or Lyft is probably the most famous gig worker job out there, but for a good reason. That was one of the first platforms to launch an app to connect drivers and riders seamlessly.
If driving people around isn’t your thing, how about delivering food or packages? There is no shortage of apps that cater to delivery services. Some examples include DoorDash, Postmates, UberEats, Amazon Flex, Instacart, and Grubhub.
While you won’t make a ton of money with survey apps, it is an incredibly easy gig to start, and you can spend as much or as little time on it as you want.
Fiverr is an online freelancing gig platform that allows you to advertise almost any service you can think of, ranging from web design to creating crazy cat videos (yes, people pay money for that).
