If you ever thought about making money running errands for someone else, then out of all the TaskRabbit reviews of 2014, this is the one you’ll want to read…
Need a little bump of cashflow in your life? Are you willing to interact with total strangers? Are you even willing to do the hum-drum things other people may find too time consuming in order to make a few bucks?
Well, if you’ve answered “yes” to any of those questions above, then you’re the right candidate for TaskRabbit. If you’ve never heard of this company with the funny sounding name, then you’ll want to see this segment that recently aired on ABC:
TaskRabbit Reviews 2014 Application Process
First of all, the initial sign-up is easy. As of this writing, they do require that you link your TaskRabbit account with either a LinkedIn or Facebook social media account. So, before you begin the application process, make sure you have either one of those accounts.
Here are some important “musts”:
- You must be over 21 years old
- You must live in one of TaskRabbit’s active markets (they’re in 19 cities in the U.S. currently)
- You must be a US citizen or permanent resident
- You must agree that TaskRabbit can check your criminal record on an ongoing basis
If you can’t agree or be any of those things above, then you’re not a candidate for TaskRabbit so don’t even waste your time.
After you give them your consent and you fill in your info, you’re asked to look at a TaskRabbit handbook and take a short little 11 question quiz. The quiz is simple and pretty much common sense.
What You May Not Know About TaskRabbit…
You need to have a bank account in order to be paid by TaskRabbit (they’ll ask you your info such as the account number and routing number).
Now this may make a few people a little uneasy giving out this info. Whether you want to give up this info or not to any company, you’ll want to always monitor your bank account activities.
So, if you’re willing to give up the ghost on this one, you can move forward on your TaskRabbit application. Speaking of application, it helps immensely if you have a Smart Phone so you can download TaskRabbit’s app (when it’s released) which will help you stay on top of your tasks.
Getting Paid By TaskRabbit
The great thing about TaskRabbit is that you set your own rates. TaskRabbit, however, takes 20% in fees for administrative support.
If you live near a bustling city like Los Angeles, then you shouldn’t have any problems at all finding people willing to hire you.
The key it appears is to make your bio and task intros sound very confident, reassuring, and interesting. Remember, these clients are opening up themselves to total strangers too.
TaskRabbit seems like a great opportunity to make some money – and who couldn’t use some extra money?!
