Bestbiddy.com is going to create a paradigm shift in how consumers find and retain quality home service professionals
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) July 2, 2009
Best Biddy Corporation today announced the launch of bestbiddy.com, the first North America-wide online home service marketplace that addresses home service needs and focuses exclusively on mobile professionals (home renovation, cleaning & maintenance, catering, elder/child care, health & beauty, entertainment, real estate services, home design, home sitting/pet services, education services and financial services).
By combining successful auction capabilities with proprietary Best Biddy technology, the site offers an unparalleled user experience to both consumers and home service professionals.
"Bestbiddy.com is going to create a paradigm shift in how consumers find and retain quality home service professionals" says Linda Liu, director of marketing, Best Biddy Corp. "We have created a go-to home service marketplace out of a realization of an unmet need in this market space. Consumers require numerous lifestyle service needs, have growing time constraints yet also have the desire to feel like they are getting a little pampering by having professionals provide service at their location." Consumers are looking for not only home renovators and home maintenance services they are increasingly looking for services that will ease their hectic lifestyle such as maid services, pet sitters, nannies/caregivers, and services that provide a little luxury such as mobile spas, personal trainers/yoga instructors, personal chef service etc.
In our current economic climate, consumers are more cautious with their expenditures. They want quality but they also want to feel that they are getting it at the most competitive price. Best Biddy provides the platform to do just this. The auction format enables consumers to receive bids from professionals and then ultimately determine their preferred bidder. "If you have a project just Best Biddy It"-you have nothing to lose and everything to gain" says Liu.
How it works:
The consumer can browse categories, professional profiles and even "ask a professional" in the user forum to help define their requirements; the consumer then posts a project anonymously using only their username and gets bids from local professionals. If there is any ambiguity a home consult can be requested before a bid is placed. The consumer then selects the best bid based on whom they believe best fulfills their requirements. Private message boards enable direct communication between the consumer and professional throughout the process for easy reference. Once the project is completed the consumer and professional rate each other on Best Biddy.
Founded in 2008, Best Biddy is free to consumers and is currently offering a one year free service trial promotion to professionals (until July 1st, 2010).
