There aren’t a whole lot of nationally available rideshare options outside of Uber and Lyft these days, but fortunately for drivers, there are a number of growing delivery companies. In the past, I’ve covered what it was like to sign up with DoorDash but today, we’ve got an article from RSG contributor Dash Bridges about how to really maximize your earnings while delivering for DoorDash.
PS the best way to maximize your ridesharing and delivery income is to sign up for multiple services like Uber Eats, Postmates, and Lyft. That way when one of the apps is slow you can use another one. Or if you become suspended from one account you can use another one. Click here to sign up for more rideshare and delivery services.
Hey Rideshare Guy readers, over the past year, I’ve logged 900+ deliveries over nearly 500 hours driving for DoorDash. Along the way, I’ve picked up quite a few tricks of the trade. My goal is to share my experiences and help you maximize your earnings while working delivery. So with that in mind, welcome to Dashville!
My background: DoorDash is my side gig. I’m an operations manager for a networking hardware manufacturer here in Silicon Valley. I’m sure that job sounds exceptionally glamorous and lucrative, but I can assure you it’s not. DO YOU KNOW WHAT HOUSING COSTS ARE HERE IN THE SF BAY AREA? Exactly. So, needing additional income, I signed up for DoorDash through a Craigslist ad. These days, I spend a couple of weeknights and Sunday evenings making deliveries for extra cash. Although I sincerely enjoy dashing and its change of pace from my day job, make no mistake, I am here to MAKE MONEY. When I dash, I’m serious about it. I’ve got 3-4 hours to hustle. Get in. Make money. Get out. Go home!
