Hey! Two news articles today about Gigwalk. One article in Forbes the other one on AllThingsDigital
Whenever clients request them! Recently in the New York area there’s been something new just about every day!
See our last answer to a similar question.
It really depends on where you are located. Each region has different kinds of gigs with different requirements. Have you tried tapping on all the gigs to make sure that there aren’t ANY which don’t require a minimum street cred value in your account. If you are really stuck and can’t get started, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the particulars of your issue and they can get you going. Hope that helps!
Not unless your home is within 1 mile of the Gig! Usually the gig must be submitted at the site or nearby. This doesn’t mean you can’t look for open WiFi connections near the gig to help speed up upload times. Stores like Starbucks and Panera Bread have free WiFi which you can tap into if your gig happens to be nearby.
Boutique gigs are pretty quick and easy. You only need a few pictures outside, a few pictures of items you like, and a few picture of you in jeans or a skirt…. so it looks like this is not a gig for the men gigwalkers for the most part ;) I have found with boutiques they can have funky hours. In San Diego some are not open at all on Monday and most do not open early. If doing a boutique gig I would try for t-f after 1pm. Some open earlier but all seem to finally be open by 1pm. About half I have seen were closed on Mondays if they werent downtown. You dont need to announce yourself as you are really just taking a few pictures and trying on jeans. Have fun! :)
Gogobot Gigs Add Photos
On a hotel’s main page, the button is right underneath the map, next to view all photos.
These are fun, quick and easy :) Try your best to be as descriptive as possible. Include street signs showing addess’, or the one way signs if that is what they are looking for. Also, if you cant include something showing you are address requested put it in the text that you are at they exact location, include as much as you can about direction like west, east of, inside or outside of a gate, which side of a dead end you are at , etc…
