Customize Your Site or Theme
Once you purchase your theme and install it on your site you need to customize it according to your need and to make look unique.
If you are not a developer then I would suggest hiring someone from freelancing websites like Fiverr or the best way is to ask the Theme seller if he can customize for you.
Freelancers with less rating or zero-rating are not much trusted in comparison to freelancers with established profiles.
Test Your Website
You should not blindly trust any developer you should ask your friends to test your website and get their feedback. How does the site work and what do they feel?
Try to solve the problems on an immediate basis. Your site must be 100% working before launch.
Establishing Social Media Presence
Now it’s time to make your presence online by creating an account on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Pinterest, and others.
Keep posting on social media accounts are important to look legit and active.
How To Monetize Micro Job Sites
If you can’t monetize your website in a proper way then it will become lose making site and in the end, you have to close your website.
Hence it is important to know how to monetize your website before it goes live. You should have a proper plan for it.
Following are the best methods you can use to monetize your micro job website.
Members Only Page
You can add membership plans where you can add different membership, and depending on membership users can see the content. Like you can add free membership with paid one those who want free membership can get that and those who want to utilize extra features can purchase a membership plan.
If you go with only a membership plan then you need to behave an established company or list of professional members/tasks. Becuase no one wants to pay that they can get for free.
Promote Gig or Tasks
If you have more users then there will be more people coming to post their tasks when there are more tasks than advertisers would like to get their task seen by more people. Here you can offer them additional services in which their tasks will be top on the list.
The basic method to generate revenue you can simply to add withdrawal fees or you can also put fees on task creation.
Promote Your Site – Marketing
This is a crucial part of any business. Marketing is where most businesses get failed.
In my opinion, only those micro job sites can survive which has funds in their hands or those whose owners can spend 15+ hours daily with 100% dedication for the first 1-2 month.
How to promote your site with no budget? It is hard to promote the site with no budget but it doesn’t mean it is impossible. What you have to do is create multiple accounts on social media and start promoting your site in different groups or pages of social media platforms.
Also, you can ask small micro earning sites to do partnerships with you. You can ask them to create tasks on your website and tell them that you have real users.
At first, you also need to add some tasks to do so when you promote your site on social media users find tasks to do.
But when you have funds to promote then you can literally go to any site and ask them to advertise your website and you can add tasks simplest tasks that you can add is to add referral links. And ask users to sign up and complete tasks.
I would suggest starting an SMM Panel Website instead of creating a micro job website.
