Fresh off raising $33 million Series C round in October, Airtasker is gearing up for a busy Christmas period, today announcing a partnership with Coles to trial a delivery service across 64 Sydney stores.
Unions NSW has today announced it has come to a “groundbreaking agreement” with Airtasker to deliver workers on the platform a number of conditions.
Freelancer is taking Airtasker to court over its ‘Like A Boss’ ad campaign – but technically it’s Slim Thug that should be suing
In 2004 startups like Freelancer & Airtasker didn’t exist; we’d never used the term ‘startup’ locally. You know what phrase was being used? ‘Like a Boss’.
I admit it, I was wrong. When I first imagined building Airtasker, I thought that from the start, marketing would be the most significant factor in building a successful marketplace for services. After a few months of pushing our developers to build lots of stuff to support online marketing campaigns, Jono (Airtasker COO and co-founder) and I started looking at the data and realized that whilst we had a pretty good net promoter score, we were spending some of our money on acquiring customers who weren’t going to be die-hard advocates of our service.
