Washare is a new company who are set to make a big impact as ‘the Uber of Washing’, creating a home-based army of 18,000 entrepreneurs who will provide an essential local laundry service at a highly competitive price, which is almost half the cost of traditional laundries. Washare consider themselves as agents of social change at the forefront of the shared economy revolution.
The Uber of Washing
Like all the best money-making opportunities, Washare is delivering an innovation based on a familiar and underused asset. In this case, the washing machine, which having done the daily wash, just sits there and waits for the next day’s load. Washare contend that by simply undertaking some extra loads of washing each day, their laundry entrepreneurs can target earnings of over £1,000 every month working from home.
Matthew Howells, Spokesperson for Washare, describes the inspiration behind this innovatory service: “Washare is the ‘Uber of Washing.’ We identified that many people have a washing machine, spare time and a need for more money. While there are many others who have no washing machine and no time, but plenty of spare cash. Using your own resources in the new shared economy is the way forward. One can make money… one can save money. Washare is bringing these two groups together so that each can be of benefit to the other.”
An Answer to the Eternal Question
Those being signed up to provide this service in the company’s initial drive are described as Cashares. The expectation is that these will be primarily female entrepreneurs as the role offers an ideal and convenient opportunity for adults who might be at home with young children, or who can combine being a Cashare with existing part-time jobs. However, in this age of lingering austerity, anyone with some spare time and a washing machine – ready to grasp one of the key tenets of entrepreneurship in maximising their assets – will find Washare an attractive choice. By becoming a Cashare, the new laundry service will also answer the eternal question for many people of – how can I earn some extra money?
The Freedom to Make Money
Based around the Cashare app, the new service provides Cashares with the opportunity to be a key part of a 24-7 local laundry service. Once they have downloaded the app and signed up, the app puts them in touch with potential customers. They then have the freedom to choose when they want to work and to do as many loads of washing as they want, while simply getting on with their day. As well as enjoying the flexibility and privilege of being their own boss, there is the option of making even more money by doing the ironing for customers as well. Payment is made automatically for all the laundry they wash.
Conversely, anyone who wants to get quality laundry at a highly competitive price can benefit from Washare. A service that is available on the doorstep cuts out the chore of travelling to the nearest traditional laundry. Service users simply download the app and enter the details of their laundry. They connect with the local Cashares waiting to wash and iron their clothes, while collection and delivery can also be arranged.
The Washare laundry service offers universal availability 24/7. Whether users are at home or travelling, the service means they can always find somebody available to do their laundry and payment is equally convenient by credit card.
Campaign Investment and Support
In support of their ambitions, Washare are instigating a multi-million pound campaign headed by a National TV advert, backed by print ads, extensive leaflet drops, the launch of the new Cashare app and Washare website, alongside a broad social media awareness push.
Spokesperson, Matthew Howells, states: “Washare has done all the hard work. Our innovation is simple to use and the benefits are huge and, as a company, we believe in sharing these benefits. We are undertaking a multi-million pound campaign to ensure that everyone is aware of this exciting opportunity. Using their washing machines can earn Cashares over £1000 every month working from home. They will enjoy full support every step of the way with a clear cost breakdown, top equipment tips, ‘How to’ videos and access to a 24/7 knowledge database. While for the huge number of people who are cash rich but time poor, who would prefer to do something else other than washing in their spare time, they can access a truly local competitively priced laundry service innovation.”
