MyCubi: An eBay For The Service Industry
MyCubi aims to help local businesses market, trade and communicate with people in their local area.
What is MyCubi? If you're a local business offering any type of service from dog walking to home remodeling, one of the more difficult tasks can be self-promotion. MyCubi aims to change all that as the “eBay of the service industry”. A Cubi is a free web page which helps businesses market, trade and communicate with people in their local area. Service offerings get put on a local map, so businesses can easily promote themselves to their neighborhood. If someone in the area is searching for the services they may offer, users receive an alert, giving them an opportunity to bid on the job. For service seekers, there is a quick form that describes what kind of service they need. This request is sent to all the relevant providers who then can bid on the job.
