TaskRabbit is a service-based marketplace that enables “taskers” the ability to make money off simple services like mounting a TV, delivering groceries, assembling furniture, and moving packages possible.
The marketplace has developed over the years to become a well-oiled ecosystem in which simple service-based jobs from task posters are streamlined to potential taskers looking for their next job opportunity.
How TaskRabbit works?
As a tasker, there are a plethora of service opportunities you can sign-up for. How the marketplace of TaskRabbit works is that the marketplace is run by task posters. The task poster who is offering the job opportunity is able to research and pick a tasker profile who best fits the job criteria. Once the process of assigning a candidate is complete, the tasker is able to start the job right away to earn money.
The beauty of TaskRabbit is the personalized aspect of handling each task. Task posters are able to interact with taskers, which creates an unique client to client element in which a job well done may lead to future potential job opportunities from the same client. By human nature, people like to pick someone who does a good job and is familiar. Similar to many online marketplaces, TaskRabbit is run by positive user reviews similar to the likes of eBay and Amazon. So if you are a tasker, make sure to make a great first impression to get that positive review.
Below are examples of some job postings and rates you may experience while browsing through the TaskRabbit marketplace when viewing tasker profiles.
