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.

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

Minimizing Tabs

Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

Incognito Mode

Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:

  1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
  2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
  3. Download extension New Incognito Window

This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

Save Webpages as PDF Files

Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

Open Recently-closed Tabs

Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.

Solve Mathematical Problems

Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

Play Media Files

Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

Stay Focus(e)d

Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.

Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

Grammarly for Editing

Grammarly is a must have, and it’s really a complete powerhouse. Grammarly helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online.

You can use it professionally or as a student, which will make the editing process much easier and more efficient. Furthermore, it can automatically check for typos when you send an email, type a Tweet, or post a Facebook comment. It’s like having your own personal copyeditor!

Loom

There are times that words in an email or written text in a chat app will just not convey the right meaning.

There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same is true of videos.

With Loom, you can capture, narrate and immediately share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand issues you are facing, or to easily convey an explanation on screen. Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

Chrome Calendar Extension

No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

Specifically, you can have this extension added as an icon in the toolbar of your browser, which I highly recommend. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.

Final Thoughts

Google Chrome has definitely evolved from its inception. As you can see you have a very powerful tool that comes as a free installation and is loaded with dozens of capabilities. The above listed Chrome apps can resolve some of the most common obstacles to your time management and productivity.
