Small business takes advantage of shared economy

Co-founder Jonathon Lui Source: SBS

From virtual assistants to nannies, gardeners and shoppers, there are now very few daily tasks that cannot be passed on to someone else.There is no doubt the shared economy is changing the Australian way of life and how we do business, and small businesses are reaping the rewards.Camille Bianchi has the story.

The Airtasker model is simple - the customer sets the maximum amount they are willing to pay for the task and people bid for the work.

The customer decides who gets the work taking into account price, experience, location and user ratings.
