Tips for Individuals & Businesses to Earn Income during COVID
Leveraging the ParqEx Marketplace
We are now more than 7 months into our new way of living, and social distancing looks to remain in our future for some time to come. We’ve been through total shutdown, then a slow reopening, and now working toward a full reopening. Still, these are hard times for many individuals and businesses, and many are looking for new ways to generate supplemental income. Here at ParqEx, that concept is what our entire ParqEx Marketplace is built around, and we’re going to share some tips for you to earn revenue by simply lifting a finger.
If you have a parking spot that you aren’t using right now, or that sits empty for even part of the day, you could be leveraging that sitting asset to your benefit, particularly if you live in or around high-traffic areas. With the ParqEx Marketplace, you can rent out that parking spot for the day, week, month, or just for the few hours that you won’t be using it— say if you’re heading into the office or traveling to get necessities or a haircut. You have full control of how and when you make your parking spot available and best of all, you set the price to however you see fit! If you’re regularly going into work, say for example, you’re a frontline worker or a small business owner, this is a great way to make a small, empty plot of land earn bonus revenue for you while you’re out earning a living— and the totals can rack up quickly. Best of all, it’s all done through the app. 100% contactless transactions!
Some businesses, like salons, drug stores, and grocery stores, are now fully open once again, and traffic in these areas are as high as ever and in some cases, even higher than before. However, not everyone has the ability to open 100%. The service industry for example, is still struggling trying to make curbside pick-up and contactless delivery meet ends. If you’re a business owner that cannot fully open yet and you have available parking spaces, put them to work for you. By listing your parking on the ParqEx Marketplace, you can set the price and availability of your spots and open them to the public. We have seen rushes of people showing up to get haircuts, for example. If you’re a business nearby one of these locations, you can take advantage of these influxes of cars and open up your parking, thereby generating extra revenue. Think about your location and what surrounds you. Is there a hospital nearby? Grocery stores with limited parking? Or maybe a popular restaurant that is doing a lot of curbside carry-out in a congested area? You can leverage your location and your property to make your business location earn for you, for despite not being able to fully reopen yet. Best of all, it’s 100% contactless. You never have to come in contact or even meet the people renting your parking spaces— it’s all handled through the ParqEx Marketplace platform.
