Easy money?

What if there was a way to make extra money, simply by snapping a few photos with your iPhone in locations you already frequently visit on a day to day basis? No going out of your way, long hours or dealing with office politics. All you’ve got to do is find the location, click the photo and voilà! Your pockets start collecting cash instead of lint. That’s what the innovators at the company, Gigwalk wanted to accomplish with their new program.

With the recession affecting people and businesses all over, Gigwalk thought of a way to bring extra income to those in need in an easy and effective manner, while still providing a quality service for local businesses.

How it works is anyone with an iphone (android program still in the works) can download the Gigwalk app for free on the app store or the website and then begin performing ‘tasks’ to earn money. These include anything from photographing menus/pricing information, product placement, record videos of business interiors, record street noise levels, convey hours of operation and others. While this may seem like easy information to obtain, it’s necessary and helpful information for other consumers.

Each task pays differently, depending on location or extensiveness of the task. Once it’s been recorded that you’ve completed a task, your Paypal account will automatically be credited.

It’s fast, easy and a great way to support that Starbucks addiction!
