How to Make Money from Google Voice

How to Make Money from Google Voice

This is a chance for me to introduce an easy way to make some extra income—or at least to tell you about a method to make easy money if you are in certain geographic locations. I have seen some people doing this and making money: they are essentially selling Google Voice accounts on Fiverr.

I hope I have not confused you. If you are wondering what the hell Fiverr.com is and how is it related to Google Voice, please read on.

Google Voice is a telecommunications service that allegedly has millions of users. It gives you one number for all your phones, and enables you to make calls and send text messages to phone numbers in the U.S. and Canada for free (at least free for 2013), and to international numbers at super low rates. You can also make PC-to-Phone calls within North America and PC-to-PC voice and video calls worldwide between users of Google Voice and Google Video Chat Plugin. In other words, you can use the Google Voice cell phone app to place outbound calls, and when you get inbound calls to your Google Voice number, the call is forwarded to your phones.

Google Voice can also be used for cheap international calling purposes. Although there are apps by other providers that offer free international calls, I would still pay a little for the added convenience that comes with Google Voice. I hope I have convinced you that Google Voice is such a good thing that many people would want to set it up.

Frustrating though it may seem, the service is only available to U.S. residents. However, if you are from USA and leave the country, GV will still work for you. Some people want to use the service but they don’t meet with the prerequisites, i.e. they don’t live in the U.S. or Canada, or else they may want to register multiple Google Voice accounts for family or business use but they don’t have the time to do that. That’s exactly your business opportunity.

How to Harness Fiverr

Fiverr is a marketplace for people to share the things that they are willing to do for $5, rather like a mini-freelancer website. You post an ad on Fiverr.com offering some service at $5 dollars, people see your ad, and if they need the service and want to buy it, they will click on the “Order Now ($5)” button and proceed to Paypal.

In Fiverr.com, “Gig” means any small service at price, $5 so when you post an ad quoted at $5, it is a gig.

If you live in the USA or Canada, you have the facility to create Google Voice accounts for people in your country and around the world. Please check out http://fiverr.com: you can see the leads there all marked as $5 and find the “Google Account Setup service” there. The price is probably $5 for 2 Google Voice accounts. Some sellers are already getting many sales, and now you can join them, post your ad, and get money.

If you don’t know how to write, please have a look at other sellers’ ads. You may write something like this: “You can use Google Voice to make calls in USA and Canada for free, and make international calls at super low rates. I can create as many Google Voice accounts as you wish. One Gig includes one Google Voice account, along with the register email address and a Google Voice number from your favorite area. If you need a GV number of a specific area in the US or Canada, please let me know when you order it.”

With Fiverr you can easily make somewhere from $100 to $500 a day, and as your gig becomes older you can make more money by outsourcing.
