4. Cleaning Services

Hiring cleaning services through a firm can be difficult. It requires finding reliable local businesses, calling them, staying on hold, and then waiting on available cleaning professionals to visit you. While it could be very inconvenient, most firms charge a lot of money for cleaning services, as this price includes the cleaning Pro's rate, firm expenses for advertisement, management, software, bookkeeping, marketing, etc. Consumers can find cheaper services when hiring contractors directly.

On the other hand, for independent cleaning Pros, it's much easier to find cleaning service requests on the live map on the iProWide app and address service details and prices directly with the customer.

5. Photographer

If you are passionate about photography and willing to make this your side hustle, starting advertising your skills free on the iProWide app could be a great idea.
