Earn Money Through Delivering



You can make money by delivering just about anything these days: products, food, and yes, even people. In the US, car ownership seems to be declining, especially for the younger generation.

With a simple app, you can become an Uber or Lyft driver for taxiing people around your neighborhood.

Or you can help move entire families with TaskRabbit Moving Services.

Maybe you don’t want to shuttle people. You can choose to deliver food or pizza instead by joining other app services such as DoorDash, UberEats, or GrubHub.

Or you can even sign up as a package delivery driver for Amazon Flex.

Additionally, a lot of service-based freelancers are also able to leverage the power of mobile apps. For example, mobile tools like Housecall Pro connect plumbers, HVAC installers, carpet and window cleaners, electricians, and pest control companies to local customers, opening up another revenue source.

In 2018, TaskRabbit published an article highlighting the success stories of taskers over the past ten years. One of the Taskers used TaskRabbit as a way to launch his own full-time business. These companies all have referral programs you can participate in, as customers are 4x more likely to buy when referred by a friend.

Although not passive, this type of work can be anything you want to make of it, including a side hustle, a full-time gig, or an income stream to pay for something else.

Most of these services offer fixed rates, and there’s no need to compete for jobs or sales. All you need to do is pick the service that appeals to you, register, and get to work raking in the dough.

Want to be an Uber driver? All it takes is three steps, although you will need to bring your car into one of their centers for inspection.

For an option like TaskRabbit, it’s a little more complicated. In this case, you need to create an engaging profile, set your hourly rate, and then compete with others for tasks.

To succeed, you will need to research your competition by searching for people providing the same service as you in your area.

Below are the top two taskers when I search for movers in New York. Check out their rates, descriptions, and photos. Then, work on standing out from the crowd with your personal brand.

Whether this is short term or long term is up to you, but any of these options can kickstart your income to help build out even more side-hustles online. And that’s a big win.
