I don't see how that model will work for anyone. It's like sub-contracting for residential services. Many issues I see, but does anyone see a good side? I really would like to know... thanks.

I never heard of serviz, so I looked them up. Extremely bad reviews.

It's not that bad of a deal for someone looking to fill out their schedule.

Carpet cleaners don't move any furniture, you only accept the work you want to do, 2 hour window to get there.

I would give it a try, but I don't want to be associated with such a poorly rated service.

Any lead generation service for the service industry that tries to get involved with, or dictate what you charge a customer is doomed to fail.

It just can't be done.

Unless the service is doing the billing themselves and taking a cut from the total, which is unlikely to be a popular thing, the only way is to charge for the individual leads, like Thumbtack, HAdviser, and a few others.

Their need to keep their enrollment/request process simple enough so the brainless can do it with minimum effort and generate revenue will always keep the lead quality very poor.

Better intake info requests also detailed better for each industry.

I don't think customer requests should be free either on the other end.

Minimal fee to week out the morons and BS.

99 cents a pop.
