What Jobs Are Available with Just a Five?

Many people are interested in making money online, but they may not be particularly well-versed in affiliate marketing or domaining. Maybe you just want a way to supplement your income. The holidays are just around the corner, after all.

Helping you earn a few bucks at a time is JustaFive.com. The online job board is the focus of today’s review and it’s the “place for people to share things they’re willing to do for $5.” Interestingly, it goes beyond that too.

Working for Five Bucks at a Time

If you’re thinking that the core concept behind Just a Five sounds familiar, you’d be right. There are at least a few other job boards out there that offer a similar service. In short, you offer something you’re willing to do for five bucks and you wait for a buyer to come along.

The key is that the individual job won’t take you must time to complete, so you can take on as many jobs as possible. There’s a good variety in the types of tasks people are offering, from generating QR codes to posting links on Facebook fan pages.

Some start to tread into some legal gray areas, however, as you can see with “Mykey” above: He (or she) is offering to give you whatever software and keygen that you want. I imagine dabbling in pirated software through this job board might not be the brightest idea.

What Kind of Gigs for Ten or Twenty Bucks?

There is one competing job board where members can only offer jobs for five dollars. There is another where “employers” can offer to pay much less than five bucks. Just a Five goes in the opposite direction.

In addition to the standard five dollar fee, the job board also allows members to post jobs for ten dollars or twenty dollars. There are no other increments, so the members are forced into one of these three price brackets.

This has the potential of adding a fair amount of value to the jobs offered, as something sold for $20 can be more substantial than a five-dollar gig. Coming from the perspective of a freelancer, I can’t do much for you for five dollars, but I am willing to commit some more time if it’s a $20 job.

Going even further, some members have gotten even more creative. They’re offering bulk sales for added service. That’s one way to make more than five bucks at a time.

How Does JustaFive.com Make Money?

Naturally, Just a Five is in it for the money too. If all the jobs are $5, $10, or $20, how does the job board provider fit into the mix? Well, they take a commission.

Just a Five takes 20% from the price paid by the buyer, leaving 80% for the original seller. This isn’t exactly a small commission, but it’s not absurdly huge either. It can hard generating a full-time income with $4 (net) gigs, but Just a Five could be a suitable supplementary source of money.

Make Money with the Affiliate Program

In addition to making some money through the small jobs (or through buying these services from the site’s members), you can earn some extra cash through the referral program as well.

JustaFive.com pays you 5% of the lifetime revenue generated by anyone that you refer to the site. This is true of both buyers and sellers that you refer their way.

In the end, calling the site JustaFive.com is a bit of misnomer, given that $10 and $20 gigs are also available, but the online job board seems to be reasonably effective in what it has to offer. There’s not a lot that separates this site from others like it, so it really depends on the value offered by its members.

      You should also try getting some video and graphic work done from these websites. There are some real good people who can do some awesome work just for 5.

  5. PPC Ian says:

    Wow! That’s crazy – just five bucks at a time. I guess it all adds up. What a neat idea. I wonder if I can get some link building done through something like this…

    1. Kirk Taylor says:

      5% is a small amount, but when you think about it, but it does add up. Just like Sponsored Tweets. I’ve signed up several people who send out sponsored messages, and I average .12 for every tweet they send. Small but adds up fast.

  6. Alex Neill says:

    Wow thats really cool never even heard of that site I had been using Fiverr like everyone else I guess.

  9. JPop says:

    Great post John! Fiverr is pretty good for that kind of work too!

  10. Rison Simon says:

    Thank god this is just a review! If you really need to do $5 gigs fiverr is the place to be. Fiverr has alexa rank around 500 whereas justafive has about 50000. All these fiverr clones like justafive, tenbux, zeerk are trying to take advantage of fiverr popularity.

    Besides it says in fiverr that $5 gigs are their trademark. I don’t think its appropriate do justafive to use same marketing tactics.

  11. Harshad says:

    WOW! Another Fiver.

  12. Lakhyajyoti says:

    It is one of the easiest way to make money online.Thanks for sharing.

  14. Marita says:

    I’ve used this a while back: I hired someone to write my friend’s name in the sand on Santa Monica beach and then I sent it as Birthday card – fun!

    1. Kirk Taylor says:

      Creative and cheap. I’m sure your friend liked it too.

  15. fas says:

    Interesting concept but I am not sure how well it will work.

  16. this is a cool different concept

  17. Really a great article to make more money online after getting such a valuable information by you John.

  18. john says:

    Great website, I’ve been using them for a while. Their affiliate program is awesome. You get 5% of anything people do!

  19. the simple fact is, it takes hard work to make money. But if you can work more smart than hard then you will be in a position where your efforts are handsomely rewarded

  20. Jeroen says:

    I used Fiverr once. Had a great experience, good service and exactly what i wanted for just $5 so I like this concept ! You actually have several Fiverr clones around these days.

  21. ikki says:

    Adsense is very fast money earner =?

  22. Redezyn says:

    I have gigs on both Fiverr and Justafiver. Fiverr works ok but there is no such thing as easy money my friends. I have been there (Fiverr) for about 4 months now and have made a bit of money. The trick is to offer gigs you can do fast and efficiently. Don’t post a gig that takes you more than an hour to do for $5.

    I have just started on Justafiver this week and am yet to see how I do there. Thanks for the info
