Earlier I talked about Freelance Writing. In reality, writing is only one of the many skills that people can freelance.
For example, I have hired programmers, graphic designers, SEO consultants, writers and many more different kinds of freelancers off some of the sites mentioned here.
7.1 Gigs Websites
What would you do for $5? On these websites you can offer a wide range of services as long as you only charge the specified amount. It does often allow you to try for an upsell.
Dollar3 – Dollar3.com has been acquired by GigsBull. A gig site with price point in multiples of $3, starting at $3.
Fittytown – The town where everything is $50. If you thought there was a marketplace for $5 (Fiverr.com) there is a marketplace for $50.
Fiverr – The place for people to share things they’re willing to do for $5.

Jobs for 10 – Gigs site $10 price point.
