I grew up in the Sutherland Shire where the saying goes ‘everyone knows everyone’. As a high school tutor, I was constantly being hired purely on my word-of-mouth credibility from parents. I quickly realised, however, that there was no platform available to share my recommendations and testimonials to get more work.
Every service that I have ever used in my life, from my babysitters, tutors, gym instructors, to even my orthodontist, was hired based on the trust generated from recommendations. The task of finding dependable service providers through my direct network of trust, however, has always been difficult. After multiple phone calls, messages and hours spent scouring the internet, I might have one or two potential service providers that people genuinely recommend.
Australian studies have found that word-of-mouth is still the most popular way to generate new business. At the end of the day, everyone wants a guarantee that the service will be safe and of high quality - and JobBuddy can grant that guarantee.
Through our streamlined solution, service users are able to access providers in their local area that have been recommended by trusted friends and family. Our platform also allows you to communicate instantly with providers through our website and hire them once you are sure they are the right fit.
On the other hand, service providers are able to build up their trusted recommendations from real people in the community and share that with people who are looking to hire them. Trust should never be compromised. JobBuddy makes trust easy to find and simple.
As a high school tutor, word-of-mouth promotion within the local community is crucial to my business’ success. In today’s world where trust is an increasingly scarce commodity, JobBuddy filters through the masses and provides people with service providers they can rely upon. It enables me to demonstrate my credibility to the local community, increasing the work my staff and I receive.
