Using as a Consumer

Use 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 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 make a decision before using 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 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 in order to contact consumers.  When a service provider contacts you about completing your work, you can search for his/her 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.

You can also visit our links page to view other resources that can be used in your due diligence efforts.

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 making a decision 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.

Using as a Service Provider  supports small business owners, future entrepreneurs and skilled workers.  Small business owners can use to earn extra business whereas future entrepreneurs can use it to jump start their businesses.  Individuals or skilled workers with credible experience in one or more of our service categories can use as an opportunity to earn some extra income on the side. If interested in using for these purposes, you should sign up as a service provider.

Service providers who sign up can do the following:

  • Search for work posted within your service category. 
  • Create a work alert to receive notifications when consumers post new work. 
  • Create a searchable profile so consumers can find you.
  • Contact consumers directly when you find a posting you think is reasonable.
  • Build your reputation by providing quality service and encouraging your customers to leave positive feedback. 

Searching for work

You can search for work by the following attributes:

  • Keyword – Narrow your search by using keywords specific to your service industry.

  • Category – Search by category and location to get more results.

  • Location – Increase the proximity to get more results.

Creating Notifications

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 5 characteristics used to determine quality service:
(If you are good in these areas, your efforts should result in good feedback from your customers.)

  • Communication - Proactiveness in updating customer about any issues related to the work in progress. For example: calling a customer in advance to inform him of any progress or delays in the work being completed.  Most customers would appreciate this so they can plan accordingly.

  • Reliability - Consistency of performance and dependability.  In other words, doing what you say you are going to do when you say are going to do it. Also,try not to over promise and under deliver (e.g., telling the customer you will complete the job in a week when it may actually take longer).  This can be disappointing to a customer which would also leave a negative impression. You should plan and give yourself enough time to get the job done and handle any unexpected issues that may occur.

  • Responsiveness - Willingness or readiness of service provider to provide services. Do not allow your customer to think you are procrastinating or “dragging your feet”.  Customers prefer working with service providers that will be happy and ready to help them right away.

  • Courtesy - Politeness,respect, consideration and friendliness. For some people, courtesy comes naturally.  It is a skill that can easily be improved with a little practice expressing sincere gratitude and addressing people as sir or ma’am.  Try not to be hard to deal with. Listen to your customers and do not continuously interrupt them while they are talking.  Keep in mind that they are the boss.

  • Workmanship – any tangibles, quality of the results, finished product or execution of the work.  This would be the level of quality associated with the final product.  It can also be how good of a job you did. For example: If a automotive body shop performs a repair job that is unnoticeable, it would be considered excellent workmanship.  Or, if a painter paints a room in a home and after drying, the walls have running paint, this would be considered fair or poor workmanship.
