How to Participate in the New Gig Economy from the Top Down?

by Milan Mathew

The days of people settling on a full-time job are slowly disappearing. A parallel economy is brewing and its successful implementations are evident. Although the idea may seem fresh, it has existed for years. This is the Gig Economy.

New Gig Economy

A gig economy is an environment with independent workers for short-term engagements. Gig economy is never a replacement for any business model, yet it is a highly promising one in the sense of its delivery model and resource management. It cannot be called an “innovative” business model but the implementation is certainly ground-breaking. It offers cheaper and efficient services which are mostly on-demand.

Organizations that are primarily not following this model are able to implement this to a certain extent and cut costs significantly. One such example would be colleges/universities hiring part-time lecturers instead of tenured ones. What we are explaining would be a total implementation of this model, top to bottom, and methods to reap success from it.

The gig economy trend has started. A research study says that by 2020 in America 40% of workers become independent contractors. In this digital age, there are a lot of short-term jobs risen along different forces.

The arrival of the internet and the freelance platforms which came with it revolutionized the way the gig economy functions. The demand and supply are similar to technological intervention. This decrease is mandatory in service businesses where time, availability and reliability are important. Thus, technology is the best enabler for a gig-economy to grow out as a major economic platform of the era.

The most prominent examples of gig-economy platforms would be Uber and Airbnb. The success of both businesses is tremendous. “How did they made the profit? Or where did they saved much?” The answers to these questions are where the real innovation lies.

The main advantages of a gig economy can be summarized as follows:

  • Flexibility and Freedom
  • Mobility
  • Global Productivity

Don’t you think it’s best to start an enterprise of this type without risking much investment and capital cost? This is certainly the best time to start out your own gig economy platform.
