No time to pickup dry cleaning? Consider TaskMonkeys or TaskRabbit

Hire a Monkey/Rabbit to run your local micro jobs

A great way to stay focused more on your business instead of having your time split on a dozen local micro jobs, consider using a service that lets you hire people on a one-off task basis.  Here are details about two different companies with the same goal “Don’t sweat the small stuff, hire a monkey/rabbit”.  Also, this can be a great part-time job for people between jobs or just starting out in the workforce.

Task Monkey

TaskMonkey.com: A Marketplace for Casual Tasks

An online service, which provides a safe and enjoyable place for posting and performing casual tasks.

Task Monkeys members can post or do tasks on the go, through a great looking mobile website interface.
Task Monkeys members not only have a very simple user interface, they are also given assurance with:

  • Pre-payment security – Tasks are pre-paid on acceptance, held in security for the user performing the task, and released when the task is completed
  • Community Vetting – Feedback and ratings are provided for the user performing the task and to the user who posted the task.

Task Rabbit

TaskRabbit.com: Our Story

It was a cold night in Boston in February of 2008 when Leah Busque realized she was out of dog food for her 100–lb yellow lab, Kobe. Leah thought to herself, “Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a place online I could go to connect with my neighbors — maybe one who was already at the store at that very moment — who could help me out?”

From this experience, TaskRabbit, an online and mobile marketplace that connects neighbors to get things done, was born. Fully vetted, entrepreneurially-minded professionals contribute their time and skills to help busy people find extra time in their days to do the things they love. Neighbors helping neighbors — it’s an old school concept reimagined for today.
