Help volunteer workers find work. Is there a nobler vocation throughout the app-land?
OK, maybe something in the health field could be considered “nobler”. But let’s not get stuck assigning random values ââto entire sectors when we have all of this great data at our fingertips.
The latest PYMNTS Provider Rankings of Concert Economics Applications is a statistical overview of this dynamic group of business applications, connecting concert workers to opportunity and offering a host of complementary services that make the concert economy so fascinating. to study.
Let’s take a look at what we do, so let’s move on to the new collation, where a number of changes have shifted the order to what is a somewhat static grouping where apps rarely drop positions in charts.
The Top 5
The big dogs of the concert world still occupy the heights, as we expected.
DoorDash remains at # 1, and apparently impossible to dislodge.
At # 2 it’s still Uber Driver, which looks solid despite a recent Dutch court ruling that Uber drivers should be considered employees, covered by local labor laws.
If the past is a prologue, then Instacart Shopper would be at # 3 for another cycle – and it is.
The independent marketplace app Fiverr maintains its # 4 spot, with continued improvements like the August launch of Seller Plus, a subscription-based loyalty program that helps freelancers take their business on the platform to the next level. superior.
Where last month there was a tie at No.5, this month is only the Amazon Flex app, which entrepreneurs had a bump in earlier this year after settling a claim for changeover.
The Top 10
Now for a few changes to a generally unwavering ranking.
The Lyft Driver app drops from one position in the leaderboard to # 6 and out of the top 5.
They will probably be back.
The Upwork app also loses a spot at # 7 in this cycle, while still remaining in the Top 10.
Grubhub for Drivers keeps pace by not changing position on the chart, retaining the # 8 spot for another cycle.
A slightly steeper drop for the Freelancer app, “which allows potential employers to post jobs that freelancers can then submit.” It drops two spots since the last cycle, but it’s another app that never seems to drop from the Top 10, as some do.
This often reflects the value of an app to stakeholders. Clearly, this is the case here.
To wrap up with a jump, jump, and slight drop of one position in the chart, the popular online and mobile marketplace TaskRabbit is pairing independents with local demand, taking 10th place this cycle and staying in the big game for itself. beat another day.
That’s the thing about brands that make it to the Top 10 of the PYMNTS provider rankings for Gig Economy apps. They are a disjointed group, favored by the masters of lateral unrest, and making a definitive dent in the uncertain job market in the second half of 2021.
We have another gig to do now, so we’ll see each other here next month.
