Using WorkMyPrice.com as a Consumer


Use WorkMyPrice.com to have services used in your everyday life completed (e.g., vehicle maintenance, lawn care, car wash, etc.).  You can also use the site to receive services  not so commonly used throughout everyday life (e.g., remodeling,  computer repair, carpet cleaning, plumbing,  etc.)

  • Simply post the work you need completed on WorkMyPrice.com for the price you want to pay and a service pro willing to complete the job will contact you. 
  • Visit service provider profiles to view qualifications, ratings, and reviews.
  • Leave feedback for service providers you work with so future customers can decide to use or not use their services.



Posting Work

There are 3 key components to a good work posting.
  • Title - The title should include the main keywords about the job. It will help your posting be easily found when service pros search for work.
  • Description - The work description should contain enough details  for a service provider to determine whether the job will be worthwhileUse photos or video whenever possible to paint a vivid picture of the job you need to be done. If a service pro contacts you for more details about your posting, consider updating it to include the details requested.  
  • Price - A reasonable or premium price determines if or how soon you will receive a response to your work posting.  If your price is too low for the services needed, you may receive little or no contact from service providers. You are in total control of how to price the work. See the pricing scale below for how it works.

Choosing a Service Provider

Service providers are required to have an active profile to contact consumers.  When a service provider contacts you about completing your work, you can search for their profile by title, category, and location.  Review profiles to see information such as proof of business and insurance documents, business descriptions, photos of their work, qualifications, ratings, and reviews left by their previous customers.

Once you choose a service provider you are comfortable with, it is a good idea to obtain documentation listing details (price, description, timeline, etc.)  of services to be completed. 




Leaving Feedback

It is highly encouraged to leave feedback (ratings & reviews) for service providers after the service transaction. Feedback helps consumers when deciding on whether or not to use a particular service provider. It also helps service providers gain more business, especially if you have a positive experience.

Creating a Service Provider Profile

Create a profile so consumers can find you.  Profiles are similar to a portfolio or resume. They are required in order to contact consumers about their work postings.  This way, when you contact them, they can look you up to view any information necessary to help them determine whether or not to use your services. Keep in mind that consumers love reading anything that will help them make a good decision on whether or not to use your services. So, the more helpful information you provide in your profile, the better for consumers to decide.  



Contacting Consumers

It is true that first impression is a lasting impression.  When contacting potential customers for the first time, the tone of your voice is the first thing they notice and use to judge you.   Be sure to introduce yourself, be courteous, and thank the consumer for their time.

 


Receiving Good Ratings

Your work will speak for itself.  By providing good work and quality services, your customers will leave you positive feedback.  Future customers feel more confident choosing service providers with good feedback left by previous customers.


Feedback will be based on five attributes used to determine quality service:
(If you are good in these areas, your efforts should result in good feedback from your customers.)

Communication:

Evaluates the service provider's ability to engage with customers effectively. This includes prompt responses to inquiries, clear updates on service progress, and the capacity to explain complex issues understandably.

 Reliability:

Measures the service provider's consistency in delivering services according to the agreed schedule and terms. A reliable provider honors their commitments and maintains consistency in their service quality.

 Customer Service:

Rates the service provider's effectiveness in managing customer interactions and addressing their needs. This includes courtesy,responsiveness to feedback or complaints, and overall dedication to customer satisfaction.

 Professionalism:

Concerns about the provider's adherence to ethical standards and professional conduct. This encompasses respect for the customer,maintaining a responsible and honest approach to work, and a commitment to minimizing any inconvenience to the client.

 Quality of Work:

Measures how well the job is done in skill and detail. It looks at whether the service meets and perhaps even goes beyond what the customer expected in how well it works and looks.

Safety
Although we take certain measures to ensure safety within the WorkMyPrice community, we can't eliminate all safety risks. Users are encouraged to take precautions as they would with meeting people and handling transactions on other websites.

For your convenience we have provided some resourceful links which may be used to research individuals or businesses.

You should exercise the same due diligence you would as if you found the service provider through other venues such as a phone book, internet search, Craigslist,etc. Service providers who contact you to provide services must have an active profile.  Do not use service providers who contact you unless they have a profile.  WorkMyPrice.com is a self-policing site.  If you view a suspicious profile or work posting, you should "flag" it immediately or contact us.


Personal Safety

  • Arrange to meet in a public place if possible.
  • Bring a friend or family member along for added security.
  • Inform a trusted individual about the meeting details and person you're meeting.
  • Before inviting individuals into your home, request proper identification to confirm their identity.
  • Trust your instincts; if you feel uneasy, prioritize your safety and leave.
  • Always employ common sense in assessing the situation.

Avoiding Scams & Fraud:

  • Never wire money via services like Western Union or MoneyGram; these transactions are irreversible and untraceable if fraud occurs.
  • Refrain from accepting money orders or cashier's checks; they are commonly used in fraud and can be forged, leaving you liable.
  • Protect your financial information, including bank details and social security numbers, from potential misuse.

Additionally, report any suspicious activity to us immediately to help maintain a safe and trustworthy community.
