Make Money Helping Other People Make Money With Job Spotter
If you’ve been looking for an innovative way to make a little extra cash, start by helping others succeed! There is an app available that pays you to find employment ads for people looking for work. It’s a win-win for everyone and a great way to put cash in your pocket. Let’s explore how to make the Job Spotter app to work for you.
How Does Job Spotter Work?
Job Spotter is a smartphone app that allows you to snap quick photos of job postings in your area. An extension of the job seeking website, Indeed, Job Spotter is used to help expand the job search process for others and focus on local demographics for job listings. When you are out and about, take a close look at job ads posted inside establishments and on billboards. Just snap a photo through the app and upload it. You’ll be rewarded based on a points system. Once you accumulate 100 points, you earn $1 on an Amazon gift card. You can redeem your gift card for items of your choosing.
What’s Needed to Get Started?
If you’re ready to get started with Job Spotter, make sure you download the app for your phone at Jobspotter.com. Make sure your phone can take clear pictures and that your photo displays everything in the ad. Photos taken from your phone and then uploaded to their site later won’t be accepted. Don’t forget to take a photo of the front of the building where the ad is located. Once complete, submit the photo through the app platform and wait for a response.
The thing most people are curious about when it comes to Job Spotter is how and when you get paid. Keep in mind it does not pay in cold hard cash, instead, you redeem points through gift cards. On average, each submission pays between 5 and 100 points with a max of 150. So you may have to do a few to reach the 100 point threshold.
The site seems to be more interested in job ads created by small businesses rather than larger chain stores, so those tend to pay out less than others. There is no set approval time set by Job Spotter and some reviewers report that it can take days or even weeks for an approval.
Watch for Glitches or Errors
Just like any submission-type app, there are bound to be a few glitches here and there that can lead to your pictures being rejected or their approval delayed. This starts with the ad itself. Make sure it’s a valid employment ad and not a work-at-home scam or someone looking to hire someone for an out-of-state sales position. For time’s sake, have a fully charged phone that can handle the upload. Ensure the photo is completely uploaded before leaving the location.
Some takeaways include:
- You’ll take two photos — one of the help-wanted sign and one of the storefront of the business with its name clearly visible
- You can’t submit the same photo twice in a 30-day period
- 100 points equals $1 on an Amazon gift card
- Look for handwritten help wanted signs at local small businesses, they will generate the most points
- Make sure your photo is clear and there are no people in it
- Make it cost-efficient by looking for signs whenever you are already out and about
If you’re looking for a side gig that doesn’t involve any sort of financial investment, this app may be a fun opportunity for you. While you won’t get rich with Job Spotter, you are doing a good deed by boosting employment awareness in your town while making a few dollars to spend online.
