According to one study, more than 52% of the US population will either be gig economy workers or have worked independently at some point.
TaskRabbit is a platform that helps employees together connect with people who need small services. Founded in 2008, TaskRabbit is a place where people can get small services from “Taskers”.
In other words, it is an equivalent of Upwork or Freelancer for physical or concert services. TaskRabbit is currently available in the US, UK, and Canada.
Joining TaskRabbit is easy. All you need to do is register online with all your contact details such as name, address and don’t forget to mention your skills in detail.
After a successful background check, there is an onboarding session in your city.
Once you’ve completed your onboarding session, you can download the app and start searching for gigs.
You have the freedom to set your own hourly rates based on tasks, location, and expertise. Keep in mind that TaskRabbit takes a 15% reduction on hourly rates for Taskers. You can also get advice for the tasks you perform from your customers.
Even if you are not an expert, you can use TaskRabbit to perform simple tasks that don’t require a lot of skill.
For example, if you can queue up, you can find work on TaskRabbit! If someone doesn’t feel like standing in line to buy tickets or gifts, they can hire someone on TaskRabbit to line up and purchase the item for them.
