The Sharing Economy: How Your Smartphone Can Find You Part-Time Work

The sharing economyThere’s no refuting the fact that from the minute we get up in the morning to the minute we retire to bed, we’re often glued to our smartphones. From a new email, to the numerous social media notifications throughout the day, there’s always another reason to pick up your phone. After all, today’s smartphone technology can do so much! While some may see their data plans and smartphones as just another monthly expense, other witty smartphone users are turning their phones into portable cash-cows.
So, forget about playing yet another round of Candy Crush during your afternoon downtime.

Instead, here are some legit ways that your smartphone can find you part-time work:


Gigwalk pays iPhones or Android smartphone users for accomplishing simple tasks like mystery shopping, deliveries, taking pictures or testing various mobile apps.  Earnings can range from as little as $3 to as much as $90 for every single task.  It all depends on the user’s experience and reputation.  Those who live in large metropolitan areas are in a position to earn more, due to the many opportunities found in urban areas. Check out Gigwalk here.


Easyshift is commonly used by business owners in need of temporary shift workers. This may be a great option if you’re in need of quick cash.
