Take That Gig

Do you have some extra time and want to make a few bucks? Gigwalk is a company with an app that you can use to find work in your area. Some take minutes, like checking a product placement in a local store, to longer ones, such as doing an inventory of a product line. The platform gives brands and retailers on-the-ground visibility and allows them to take action to drive more in-store sales. There are gigs available in sixty cities so far with more to come in the future.

Workers (gigwalkers) look up opportunities on their phone and decide if they are interested. Each individual Gig is represented by a pin on the map in the mobile application. Gigs can take anywhere from 5 minutes to a few hours to complete and pay from $3 to $100. It pays directly to your Paypal account. Here is a LINK to the main site.

The term to knock off  became popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
