The best gigs are on the internet.
Call it the sharing or gig economy if you will, but the basic concept is actually not really that new. Renting instead of buying is hardly unheard of. Any car hire or taxi service can make a reasonable case for being part of the sharing economy. Freelance journalists, fashion models and others have been doing gig work for a century or more.
However, as in many other fields, Internet is the great game changer. Eliminating the need for much of the costly physical infrastructure and manual processes required earlier, it also facilitates peer-to-peer business, i e exchanges were either of the parties involved can be user or provider and there is no absolute boundary between the two.
Companies like AirBnb and Uber have led the way. Their success stories are shining examples for entrepreneurs looking to develop new sharing or gig work business concepts. Among currently hot business areas are various types of small job gig work, pet care, neighbourhood tool lending, flexible office rental, cleaning services and much more.
