Gigwalk Review – Walk the Walk, Make a Buck?

gigwalk reviewIs GigWalk for you? In this Gigwalk review, I’ll go over what exactly the app is and whether it is worth your time.

GigWalk Review In a Nutshell

Gigwalk is an app that lets you earn money by doing small tasks in your local area. These tasks vary and usually pay just a few dollars. 

GigWalk Review – How It Works?

Gigwalk is an app that shows you small tasks to complete based on your location. These tasks vary and can be anything from finding out the prices at a local coffee shop to taking photos of something in your area. Basically, it’s a form of crowdworking — which is when companies outsource small jobs to different people. 

The gigs are based on your location. The price per gig can vary and can be anything from just a few bucks to more than a dozen bucks.

The amount of time it will take to complete a gig will be displayed. However, it is just an estimated time, and you also have to take into account the time it will take to get to the place where you need to do the gig.

If you want to do a gig, you have to apply for it. If you are accepted, you then do the gig and submit your work, which has to be approved by the client who ordered the gig.

Gigwalk Review – Worth Your Time?

I downloaded Gigwalk and found quite a few gigs available, even though I wasn’t in a very populated area. Most gigs came from just one client and were similar. However, some gigs were quite a few miles away.

The thing with Gigwalk is that it probably is only worth your time if you live in a heavily populated area. You don’t want to have to travel a mile in order to do a gig. You also don’t want to work for an hour just for five bucks.

My recommendation is that you only apply to jobs that are easy to do, will take very little time, are close by —  and  do it at a time when you are not busy and you have nothing better to do. Or do a gig if you’re gonna be in the area anyway. If you are in a populated area, you will probably have access to more gigs.

So Is Gigwalk Legit or a Scam? Can It Really Be True?

Gigwalk seems to be legit. I couldn’t bother wasting my time on the gigs that were available, because they were too far away, paid too little, and took too long. I also did not want to waste my time applying for the gig; what a hassle. However, reviews on Google Play show that they do pay their workers.

Although it’s legit, you really have to think about whether this is worth your time. Remember that you have to apply for each job, and if the client doesn’t like your work it may not be accepted. Again, I’d say apply to jobs when you have nothing to do, when they are close by, when they seem really easy, and when they offer enough pay compensation.

I’d recommend looking into something that you can turn into a real full-time income stream, such as affiliate marketing.

    Hey Ben, this is a great article. I know many people who have been interested in working from home and the point you make about not traveling too far to do a gig is probably the best advice. You wouldn’t want to get caught up in traveling for 15-30 minutes, doing the work for another 30 minutes just to make 5 bucks haha.

    Great article! Hope to see more soon.

      Hey Michael,

      This is exactly the problem with these kinds of stuff. I am also referring to doing online surveys. Theoretically, you can earn a certain amount, but in the end you end up spending a lot more time than you planned to.

      All the best,

      Ben
