There’s so many ways to make money with your car nowadays.
With delivery driving there are opportunities far beyond just dropping off pizza and hoping for a good tip.
Networking is the name of the game.
That’s right, being a courier can actually be a great means for you to meet tons of people and there’s many ways you can benefit from those small interactions.
Are you an entrepreneur? Maybe you’re a painter, personal trainer, photographer, handyman, caretaker, nanny, etc.
No matter what your hustle is, you could make money delivering for Postmates, Doordash or Amazon Flex WHILE generating clients for your business.
Here’s a real example:
My girlfriend Lily is a baby-sitter, she goes to college and drives with Doordash so she can make money with a flexible schedule that she chooses.
She’s a true Bossified hustler.
She put all the information about her nannying services on a website created for FREE using Wix.
Then, she created business cards with her website printed on them.
When she’s out delivering food and smiles in local neighborhoods, she’s also dropping off her business card with every person she comes in contact with.
She’s gotten so many new leads from this that she’s been able to up her price and charge more for each baby-siting gig!
Here’s the truth:
EVERY CONTACT IS A POTENTIAL CLIENT.
So you’re out delivering food and you leave your business card with somebody’s order. Even if they may not need the particular service you’re providing, the next time they do or someone they know is need they’ll most likely still have your business card around.
That’s the great thing about business cards, they’re a reference that people can always go back to whenever they need your contact information or services.
Plus, it makes you look way more professional and shows them that you mean business!
So while you’re out hustling making that extra cash delivering for Amazon Flex, you can also be making major moves on growing your business!
