With Thanksgiving and Black Friday behind us, we hope your bellies are full, that you got a steal on some shopping deals, and you’re looking forward to more holiday festivities to come.
We also hope that each of you will take some time this December to make the most of the cheerful celebrations of Hanukkah, Christmas, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Eve—and maybe even overindulge a bit on latkes, your favorite Christmas fare, and champagne!
For those of you who are interested in picking up a few extra tasks and saving up a bit of extra money in advance of this gift-filled season, we’ve gathered data on the top categories based on Client demand. Keep reading to find out which categories will see the highest demand, and make sure to open your Availability for the coming weeks to snag extra tasks!
As Clients plan holiday celebrations, buy gifts for loved ones, and prepare for family and friends to gather, they will need your help in these categories:
- Personal Assistant* includes gift wrapping
- Event Staffing
- Yard Work* includes snow shoveling
If you haven’t already added these categories to your profile, consider adding them today, and watch the task invitations come rolling in!
For those of you in snowy locales, snow removal is included within the Yard Work category, so make sure you add information about snow removal into your Yard Work Quick Pitch to help make your profile stand out in Client search results. We also recommend revamping your Personal Assistant Quick Pitch during this period to include mentions of gift wrapping and toy assembly—after all, the elves can’t do it all themselves!
After Christmas, we see a spike in Client activity around reviving their homes in preparation for the new year. Add these categories to your profile to make the most of this Client demand:
- Help Moving
- Furniture Assembly
- Minor Home Repairs
- Lift + Shift* includes Christmas tree removal
- Shopping + Waiting in Line* for Taskers in the UK and Canada, we see a spike in Shopping and Waiting in Line demand for Boxing Day, so consider adding it as a category if you haven’t already!
We encourage you to open up your Availability and take extra care to check your schedule often to avoid schedule conflicts around this busy period. And make sure you set aside some time for yourself to enjoy the holidays with loved ones—after all, it does happen only once a year!
Hanukkah Sameach, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays from all of us at TaskRabbit!
