what if there was a way for me to list my errands and have ordinary people just like myself compete for it

It was created as a way to fulfill labor needs of ordinary people and small businesses alike in this tough economic time.

“In 2011 the country was still trying to climb out of a recession. I was working more hours at my day job, with fewer benefits because of recent cutbacks. That didn’t change the fact that I still had household chores and errands that needed to be completed and less time to complete them. I thought briefly, about hiring someone to help me cross those tedious items off of my to-do-list. Then figured, I’m no celebrity with a personal assistant, this seemed out of my financial reach. Next, the idea popped into my head, what if there was a way for me to list my errands and have ordinary people just like myself compete for it? And the rest they say is history,” Gofer Now CEO, T. Goodman.

Using this service is an alternative to finding freelance labor through online classified ads. "The nation’s top online classified service was linked to 330 crimes and 12 deaths in the U.S. over the course of a year" according to a recent study conducted by Oodle.com.

Gofer Now provides a safer environment for contracting people for services. All of the Gofers undergo an application process which includes a background check and identity verification. A rating system allows users to provide feedback and the Gofer to build their online profile and credibility. Gofer Now provides added security of no money exchanging hands and ensures that the Gofer gets paid for the work they’ve completed.

The site is free to join, and free to post your errands.

Gofer Now is continuously looking to build their team of background checked, reliable Gofers. Stay at home parents, college students, veterans, artist, or anyone looking to earn supplemental income are encouraged to visit: http://www.gofernow.com.
