Our marketplace was built to help you get more jobs without breaking the bank.
You shouldn't have to worry about gaining clients especially when you are starting out or have no marketing experience.
Let us do that for you!
We take a very small 10% commission for any one-time job you complete. If we help you secure a recurring job, we take only 3.5% commission per service until the user decides to cancel services with you.
This makes acquiring jobs affordable and you only pay once the job has been completed.
It also makes it the perfect opportunity to open up a business and get clients right away.
We are actively searching for businesses from all sorts of industries and locations to fulfill the needs of shoppers.
To join our marketplace we have several requirements.
- You must be a Premium BookingKoala user (more on that later).
- You must complete 5 bookings on our platform before being listed as a business under our marketplace.
- You must receive 2 reviews inside the platform before being listed.
- You must offer all of our leads a 10% to 25% discount on your services (it is up to you how much you'd like to offer). This is a first time client discount and it will only be applied towards the first service. The system will handle this automatically and you will be able to track everything on your end.
How will you get me clients?
We spend thousands of dollars on advertising for our marketplace.
When a user signs up for our mailing list, we send them an email with our top businesses within their location and desired category/industry.
The email looks something like this:
Later, we will promote your services via that list.
For example, whenever holidays may come up, we will reach out to you to give special deals to potential buyers which we will promote on our end.
Sometimes we may even send out an email that focuses on your company exclusively.
Whenever the lead is ready to book, they will do so through your booking form which gives them access to all of BookingKoala's premium features.
They will be able to tip your providers, rate the service, book, and reschedule on the go, plus all of the other features we are constantly adding.
How can I get placed higher on the list?
Each new business who signs up for the marketplace is automatically placed at the bottom of the list.
Based on different factors we may move you up the list as time goes by. These factors include your average ratings, the types of promotions and pricing you offer, a quality and user-friendly experience on your website, and much more!
We are actively seeking new businesses to join our list and securing your spot early will benefit your business before our lists starts to get crowded.
Why must I become a Premium BookingKoala user?
All of our shoppers are promised a premium service. Our platform helps users get what they want. Too many businesses rely on outdated business models without keeping up with trends that focus on the customer. Today, services like Uber are ruling the industry by offering businesses convenience and an excellent experience. Smaller businesses struggle to meet the same requirements for many different reasons. BookingKoala gives them the opportunity to compete with these multi-million dollar services, evening the playing field. Through these premium features, businesses are able to offer discounts to customers while customers can rate services after each job is completed, helping us determine which services are doing well.
Why must I have 5 completed bookings and 2 reviews?
This validates that you are a real user. It also helps us determine what type of service you are. We closely monitor reviews to ensure the best businesses are showcased to our potential leads. If you've completed jobs in the past somewhere else you can easily replicate them on our platform. Even if you've completed hundreds of jobs, we can help you replicate them on our platform. You can also transfer existing reviews onto our platform. By doing so, you can become listed on our platform within a few hours.
Why do I have to offer a 10% to 25% discount?
There are 3 reasons why we offer this coupon code.
- So you can track how many clients we get you.
- We can track commissions--some folks may book with you without ever entering a coupon code (this is a win for you, we get no commissions in that scenario)
- Leads enjoy discounts and it increases conversions.
How do I track how many clients you get me?
Since most users will use a coupon code, you can run a report from your dashboard to see how many clients used that coupon code.
If customers call your office to book an appointment and you use the coupon on the customers behalf, it will also track the lead.
What if you don't advertise my industry and/or location yet?
If you are the first to be interested in an area we don’t service yet, this can be your opportunity to sign up and get ahead of the pack. Once we have 3 interested businesses in your industry/location, you will be added to that region and we will begin to advertise it for you. If shoppers like what you have to offer, they can book right there! To qualify, make sure all above requirements are met.
