Quick Pitches are a way to market your skills to Clients by showcasing your experience in a particular skill, the tools you have at your disposal, and why they should choose you for their task.

3. Set Your Schedule in Advance.
Clients book Taskers on average 3-5 days in advance for most tasks, and 5-7 days in advance for IKEA Assembly tasks. Our data also indicate that a 3+ hour block of continuous Availability is optimal for receiving tasks. Keep this in mind when setting your schedule, and make sure you update your Availability daily to avoid schedule conflicts.
4. Choose Your Days Wisely.
While we encourage all Taskers to take breaks from tasking whenever they choose, we also encourage you to set your schedule for when you’re most likely to receive tasks. The most popular days for Clients to book tasks on are Friday and Saturday, so make sure to include weekends when setting your Availability. The least popular day? Monday. Clients must have a case of the Mondays too.
5. Get Those Badges.
Our data indicate that Clients are more likely to book Taskers who have the Elite Badge and/or Great Value Badge. To get these badges on your profile, work on having high Acceptance and Reliability Rates and maintain high positive reviews.
6. Maintain High Reviews.
High reviews will certainly catch Clients’ eyes as they are scanning search results for Taskers. To receive high reviews, make sure you show up on time to tasks, that you communicate clearly and frequently, and that you are friendly and treat your Clients and their belongings with respect.
