The gig economy has taken the world by storm, with over 45 million Americans participating in it in some fashion. By 2020, one study estimates that 40% of America’s workforce will be self-employed through either contract work or freelancing or some sort.
Over the years, the biggest challenge for self-employed workers was discovering new mediums to find work. No more. With the rise in the gig economy, these freelancers have access to millions of jobs and extra cash at the click of a button. This is exactly what WeGoLook facilitates. By pairing freelance workers, otherwise known as ‘gig workers’, with jobs across the country, and now the world, WeGoLook fulfills client asset verification requirements.
“I went after the individual consumer marketplace first,” detailed Robin Smith, CEO. Banks, insurance and Fortune 500 companies followed. All with different needs, but Smith’s versatility allowed the company to take off.
While consumers over the last few years have benefited from the phenomenon of clicking a button and having the desired item, vehicle or experience arrive within an hour or less, businesses have lacked an enterprise-grade option bringing the same conveniences to their doorsteps. That is, until WeGoLook’s on-demand task platform for businesses, enabled the outsourcing of everything from inspections to shipping to deliveries to plain old errands of any shape or size. How does it work?
WeGoLook has an army of 25,000+ gig economy workers, called “Lookers,” which are spread out across the United States, Canada, Australia and the UK. Lookers are comprised of mobile notaries, process servers, photographers, retirees, and other persons utilizing opportunities within the crowdsharing economy. All Lookers must pass a background check, dress and appear professional, work with onsite contacts in a friendly manner and have the ability to perform their “Looks” via a smartphone.
Lookers are hired at the press of a button to do practically any errand a business needs. They are paid by “Look” completed. With a powerful online dashboard, robust customer service and enterprise-level vetting and quality assurance, WeGoLook brings the on-demand economy securely to SMBs and enterprises, thanks to the crowdsourced Lookers.
Gig workers and outsourcing are helping fill the massive vacancy being left by retirees. Think gig workers aren’t specialized or professional? Think again. With the rise of the gig economy, shared marketplaces, and smartphone technology, gig workers are more professional, knowledgeable, trained, and equipped than their freelance peers of the 1990s and 2000s.
In an era where competition is stiffer than ever and businesses must focus on core competency and outsource everything peripheral, like never before, WeGoLook is a saving grace for customers across the world, while providing opportunities for individuals interested in picking up a little extra cash. “As long as you’re innovative and you’re able to create new ideas and figure out ways to solve problems you can be successful,” said Smith.
