Unlike other popular directories, we do not ask consumers to enter their name, email or other personal information. Many large home improvement service-related companies do and then sell those leads to other businesses, who then commence a harassing campaign of non-stop emails or robocalls to the customer!
SmartGuy is different. We are community based platform built for the community and by the community. In fact, we try to have a local business network leader within each city available to assist both business and consumers with any questions they might have.
Businesses can join for FREE, as long as they agree to (1) provide quality service, (2) agree to refer one another and (3) offer specials and/or discounts to the public. Consumers can access the information for FREE and instantly view detailed information on the local business professionals in their area, as well as the specials or deals they are offering.
By creating these massive business referral networks and marketing them direct to local consumers, businesses do not need to waste a great deal of money to advertise their business and can therefore pass those savings onto consumers in the form of specials or discounts.
The fact is people are tired of non-personal fully automation sites that sell the leads to random businesses. They want to be in control and rather than viewing a list of 30-40 plumbers in their area, they really only need one that is trusted, recommended and offering a great deal. A professional with a detailed web page that helps them make a better decision, which includes the company's ratings on BBB, Yelp and other review sites, as well as opinions of their customers on social sites. They want to talk to someone local (their business network leader) that lives in their community and can assist them with their projects or needs.
They want a free “Smarter” way of finding local professionals. Now they have it…. SmartGuy.com
