The On Demand Weekly #4

By Guest User 19th February 2015

“Uber for X” is shining in its own glory! Not only that you can call a cab on-demand but now can even get your car fixed on-demand, easy to meet your laundry problems with “WashioNow“, Bellhops hires college students to help you move, and Amazon will bring you toilet paper in less than an hour. All this and endless more on-demand services are ready to explode the market.

All this states clear and loud that it’s the correct Business Model of On-Demand Ideas that will get you fortune. It’s showtime for all the “Uberpreneurs” out there!

Juggernaut’s Insight:

  • Instant gratification model puts a lot of pressure on your servicing infrastructure because of the unpredictable demand.
  • As the on-demand economy grows at a rapid pace, freelancers and contractors must know how to manage legal and financial tasks.
  • Evading the legal and regulatory issues would do no good to the on-demand startups. Best is to sort out things.
