How does Logajob work?
Logajob is an online platform that brings together the tradesperson and the homeowner to a more transparent place. More and more services are going on-line and acquiring quotes has, in the past, been a rather laborious process. You need to decide which tradesperson you’re going to ring. Great if you’ve already had a word of mouth referral but not so great if you’re new in town and don’t know where to start. The Yellow pages can be a daunting place – a list of numbers and ads but no real references. I always have this quandary – do I go for the biggest ad as they must be doing okay because they can spend more on advertising or, are they going to cost this into my quote and am I going to end up paying for their advertising in the long run? So, where to from here?
I also find the whole process of meeting tradespeople on site a bit tedious, yes I know they have to meet with you and measure up the site etc. but as a lot of their business will be awarded due to ‘personality’, they like to have friendly chat and once I’ve had a good long chit chat I find time is running away with me. I simply don’t have time to meet with 4 people. In addition, they say they’ll come at 10.00am, I rearrange my very important coffee date for 11.00am and by 10.45am still no sign of said Plumber, electrician, builder or landscaper! When I finally have time to call the tradesperson (they seldom call you) back to reschedule, it’s usually 11.03pm and somehow I don’t think they’d welcome a call at this hour. So…………….
Logajob is the answer to MOST of these issues, not all of them but most of them. At 11.05pm when I’m about to load the dishwasher and realise it’s not working, then and there I can log a job on Logajob because sure as nuts I’ll forget the following day and weeks and weeks of manual dish washing is enough to make anyone cranky. So, I log a job at any time of the day – the ease of 24/7 online. The tradespeople then contact ME! No ringing around, they ring YOU to find out what they can do for YOU (sounds too good to be true doesn’t it) The tradesperson also finds this quite efficient because they can contact you first thing in the morning while they’re doing office admin, before they’re out on the tools – they also don’t like to receive calls while they’re on the tools. Too often, if they can’t answer then and there, they miss the work. They can email you or contact you at a mutually convenient time.
Admittedly Logajob doesn’t take the site visit process out of the equation in many instances, but you do know that each tradesperson is going to have to provide you with their best price first up or else they miss out – their personality might win you on the day but their profile page and price are going to be the real deciding factor. Tradesmen, this is why it’s so important to get your homeowner to award the job to you via the website – this is the only way they can close out the job and leave feedback on you. Feedback is essential as this becomes your online personality – homeowners use this online personality to make those decisions you simply can’t make by looking in the Yellow Pages.
Logajob will save you time and frustration and very importantly save you money! But, don’t take our word for it – simply read the testimonials placed by others. Give it a try, it’s simple, you log a job, receive your quotes, make your decision on who to use. Job done, leave feedback – assist your fellow homeowners by promoting those who work to a high standard, and eliminating those who give the industry a bad name. Happy Logging!
