Small Biz Resource Tip: TaskRabbit

April 27th, 2012 ::


Maybe you need to take on a few lower-paying jobs to get you through a slow season. Maybe you are just starting out and need to get the word out about your services. Whatever the reason, TaskRabbit can help you find customers or people to do tasks for you. Users post their needs on the site, and businesses bid on the job. TaskRabbit doesn’t charge you anything to bid, but makes its money by tacking on a 15 percent service fee for the users who accept your bid. The lowest offer usually gets the bid, but if you want the work and are trying to build a reputation, it may be worth it.
