Hi guys stupidly signed up to one of those monthly hi pages contracts - they promised one Mowing quote opp per day but all I get is time wasters wanting garden clean ups etc - any tips on how to get out of this contract ? Think my money would be better spent on flyers etc - mind you so dry in brisbane business must be tough for all in se qld - cheers

Hi Surf,

 

Is it costing you money? - I signed up for a free trial with them a while back where I don't pay the quote fee but no charge to me - I just ignore them now - most are one-offs well out of the area I specified - not worth the bother - maybe talking to Office of Fair Trading would be an option - these "gig economy" style products are a cancer I reckon - for our industry anyway - Airtasker is a cesspit of people offering peanuts for services provided sight unseen and providers bidding to the bottom.

Good luck Surfy, Their admin seems pretty sloppy. Could be good for you.

I started out rejecting every job email they sent me for several weeks - with the "reason" field saying they were way outside the area I set up in my profile - since then I just delete them - and I'm still getting them! - many weeks after my free trial period ended - their blurb says that only 3 providers would be offered each lead so it gives you some idea of how on the ball they are admin wise

I had a free trial with tham last year too.a lot of the leads were too far away but I did pick up a few clean ups while I wasn't very busy.when the trial was over they kept ringing and ringing for me to sign up but I didn't bother..might be worth it during quiet times of the year but they only seem to do a yearly contract,not worth paying fees when too busy to even quote new jobs in peak seasons..
