We're taking part in TechStars startup weekend and have read through your feedback on this forum regarding websites like Rated People or My Builder and understand your frustrations with them. Particularly having to pay for low quality leads or time wasters. We have an idea that should should eliminate quote processes, weed out time-wasters, mean that you never pay for leads never have to quibble over price and give you full control over job specs. The key differences between our idea and the other competitors is that instead of providing quotes to customers and then completing the deal offline you will create pre-packaged solutions for the standard jobs that you do on a regular basis that customers can purchase online. For example, an electrician could put up a pre-packaged solution for interior lighting. It would cost £X per interior light installed. The customer then selects the quantity of lights they need and pays for the order online. Just like they are online shopping. So you have no need to provide quotes, no need to buy leads and you can create only the jobs you want to do and at the price and spec that you set out from the outset. Obviously this will only apply to the standardised jobs you do regularly and can accurately price for. ie. not large highly customised projects. In addition to this we would like to add a feature on the front page of the website whereby customers can ask questions about their home improvement problems before they buy the packages. We believe this will attract more people to the website, generating more sales for you. We would really appreciate your feedback on this idea, if we get enough positive feedback then we can turn this into a reality for you. The two questions we have are; What are your thoughts on creating pre-packed solutions for standard services? Would you be happy to answer questions from potential clients if It could help you generate more sales? We welcome any questions from you too! If you like the idea, then please also visit www.gofixit.co/trades to sign up for the waiting list and share with your friends. The more people that do, the more likely that this idea becomes a reality. Thanks in advance!
