List your skills as micro-jobs and earn extra income in your spare time.

Profit from micro works on Fivesquid.com

With recent figures showing the people working on zero hour contracts increased to 697,000, is being self-employed the new trend? .

Fivesquid

There are 4.5m people working for themselves in the UK, which is at a 40 year record high. With the social sharing economy booming (uber, airbnb, borrowmydoggy.com, etsy), the online workforce is offering more work opportunities and opening up geographic labour restrictions. Being self-employed is finally paying off.

fivesquid.com is a marketplace where people can trade skills and services from as little as £5.

Dan is a writer that offers his services on fivesquid.com, and so far has made over £14,000 by selling his writing skills through the website. His clients include businesses, small blog owners and sometimes journalists from America and the UK. This is just one website he is working through; imagine if he can replicate his skills on 3-4 similar websites and earn the same amount?

Most members on fivesquid.com are based in the UK and 48% have flexible working conditions. No longer is the freelance market targeted to professionals who specialise in a specific skill, anyone can monetise their skills or hobbies. Members on fivesquid.com offer services from blogging, to voiceover work, and are finding creative ways to put their skills and hobbies to work, working for yourself is becoming a lot easier and risk free. All skills and services can be reviewed to ensure quality of work is of professional standard.

About CEO

Terry Koutsios, founder and CEO of fivesquid.com has never had a full-time job and doesn’t feel like he is missing out ‘the workforce is changing, no longer do people need to go out and get a second job to earn extra income, working for yourself is not only liberating but it gives you a great sense of achievement. You are dependent on yourself and not another company or person.’

Simple to get buyers

Service buyers tend to be small businesses and people looking for bespoke gifts. The simple payment structure on the website allows people to buy and sell services that range from £5 to £50.
