Preparing Your Profile for Holiday & Seasonal Demand

The categories for which TaskRabbit is well known–such as Furniture Assembly, Cleaning, and Mounting–all have their place at the proverbial holiday dinner table. The demand for those categories is steady throughout the year.

Other categories (like the ones below) see a seasonal spike each fall and winter as Clients need a hand with holiday prep and winter-related home tasks.  If you don’t already have these categories on your profile, consider adding them to take advantage of seasonal demand! If you already do, consider updating your category skills descriptions to include certain seasonal keywords to help you stand out to Clients scanning search results for specific skills. Read on for examples!

Typically, there are also a lot of Event Staffing and Cleaning tasks that arise during the holidays–but we all know this year will be different. However, if you didn’t see a category above in which you already task or which you are interested in adding to your profile, there are still plenty of ways to get seasonal task invitations! Consider Wait In Line, Shipping, Cooking/Baking, Smart Home Installation, and Interior Design. These are categories, like Furniture Assembly and Mounting, that can be in demand all year-long, But if you take into account Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and other holiday activities, these categories may compliment your profile and help you capture more seasonal demand. 

TaskRabbit offers a task for every skill set, and that is truly a gift. 🎁 No matter when or where–’tis the season for tasking!
