Uber was founded in 2009 and quickly went on to become the go-to transportation service and was rated as the 2nd most disruptive company in 2018 by CNBC. Have you ever wondered if you could start a business like Uber? If yes, this is the right place to gain some information about how you can go about that. Uber like businesses are called ‘Uber for X’ where X stands for any deliverable service in the market. Customers place orders via mobile apps or websites and connect with service providers. The provider accepts the requests and delivers the service. It is quite simple. But, there are a lot of things you need to keep in mind while building your own ‘Uber for X’ business. 

The business model

It is a simple two-sided marketplace. Users generate the demand and the providers supply it. Your business will act as a facilitator by providing a convenient platform for the users and providers. To prevent the users and providers from working with each other directly, you can collect a fee. Your business should offer a unique value proposition to both the users and the providers. The users need to find the service you are offering affordable and at the same time the providers should find it profitable enough to work with. 

Let’s find out how Uber does it. Uber partners with the drivers instead of owning a fleet of cars. Uber charges the rider a nominal amount for the ride, a fee from the driver, small fee for ride cancellations, and promotional partnerships. Below are the advantages the riders and drivers get from using Uber services.    

Advantages for the rider

  • Convenience 
  • Real-time tracking
  • No long waits
  • Exact ETAs 
  • Upfront pricing

Uber for X can be implemented for numerous services. Few examples are delivery services including food and packages, medical consulting, logistics, education services like private coaching, chores like housekeeping, dog walking, babysitting, etc.
