Making Money In The Online Gig Economy.

From the start of the Internet and even more so since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide, making money in the online gig economy has become increasingly important for many entrepreneurs online. What exactly is the online gig economy?

The online gig economy is an online economy in which people hire each other for online and offline jobs. The online gig economy has exploded from about the year 2000 due to the rise of the Internet and sites such as Fiverr, which was founded in 2010. 

Online platforms are important in many different ways in the online gig economy. Everybody knows Uber and many other online platforms where people get paid per ‘gig’. However, you can also do gigs offline and online directly with customers and make money online like that.

Other examples are on-demand services around writing. Like writing blogs, columns and short ebooks for somebody else, correcting an ebook or reading a book to make an audiobook. In all these examples, I get paid only once and that is it.
