Have you ever stopped to think about the unique opportunity you have to make a positive impact on people’s lives every single day as a Tasker? When you complete tasks for Clients, you don’t just get to build your network and grow your business. You get to connect with real people from all walks of life, which can sometimes lead to genuine friendships.
At TaskRabbit, we believe human connection is one of the greatest possible outcomes of our platform. We’ve heard so many amazing Tasker and Client stories that inspire us, and one Tasker, in particular, has become a shining example of how to make lasting connections by going above and beyond!
One of our Elite Taskers from Phoenix, Wade S., recently went the extra mile on one of his recent Assembly tasks by purchasing a balloon and flowers for his Client’s daughter, who was celebrating her birthday. Wade didn’t just secure a repeat Client; he also gained many new referral Clients and made a positive impact on someone’s day!
I had to assemble a trampoline today and before my Client left, he mentioned it was for his daughter’s birthday. He was a first time Client and I sent him photos of it. He was thrilled and said he would refer me to many people! Always go the extra mile. I told him to please wish her a happy birthday from myself and TaskRabbit.
A second example of Wade going above and beyond in a task is how a small action—washing dishes while letting a Client’s dogs out—led to a recurring Client and a friendship between them.
I had a Client give me a great rating for washing her dishes while letting her dogs out. At the time she was in the hospital having surgery for breast cancer. I am now friends with her on Facebook, and she is special to me. I’m about to surprise her with some roses. Take care of your Clients and they’ll never forget you!
As TaskRabbit’s footprint grows around the world, so do the opportunities to meet new people from your community and make meaningful connections. We’re proud that our platform gives you the chance to put a smile on someone’s face every day, and we also think this type of positive energy is a great way to grow your business!
