What is the Article Widget?

The article widget is a proprietary tool provided to SmartGuy® members which enables them to use a code on their website to add streaming articles related to their industry. It is a well known fact that major search engines look for new and changing content when ranking websites. By adding it to your home page, you are not only providing more information for consumers and keeping them on your website longer, you might greatly increase your personal websites ranking.

How accurate is the service businesses information?

SmartGuy® cannot guarantee that information listed on each service provider profile pages and on their web sites is 100% accurate. It is the responsibility of each service provider member to supply accurate information, and to keep his or her profile up to date. And it's the consumer's responsibility to validate that information by screening it. We care about our consumer members, and do not want them hindered by a false sense of security. Information and discounts  provided by service providers at the time of membership can change at any time and become obsolete. This is why we do not prescreen our service provider members. Consumers are encouraged to take the initiative. Before hiring any service provider, check out important information: current licensing, insurance, membership status in professional organizations, discounts, etc. and make sure that the information provided is still valid. 

Will SmartGuy cancel a member's status immediately upon receiving a complaint?

Feedback is critical to maintain the quality-control standards here at SmartGuy®. But, as with any grievance process, we know that there are always two sides to every story. Therefore, we evaluate each complaint from both sides; that of the service provider as well as the consumer. We are also aware and not naive to the fact that since each service category only allows for 1 professional, competitors might try to Report a Problem in an attempt to remove a competitor and apply for the service position. Many times though, an unpleasant experience is simply the result of a misunderstanding that can, in time, be worked out. We do, however, reserve the right to remove offending service professionals from our network when we notice a negative trend.

How do companies get on our database?

A service provider gets on the SmartGuy® list only after providing us with detailed information on their service.

What is your screening process for business?

To keep our services free to homeowners and consumers, our screening process is minimal. Service Providers and other professionals must have excellent ratings and are asked to provide accurate information, including some of the following: their years in business, office hours, company overview, etc. They are expected to keep information on their profile page updated. It has been our experience that pre-screening this type information gives homeowners a false sense of security. It would make them not question information found on provider profile pages and websites, even though that information might have changed since the time of initial membership.  By advising homeowners to verify member service professional's licensing, insurance, and references themselves, we enable them to make better hiring decisions. This helps homeowners have the peace of mind that the member service provider information is 100% accurate.
