heres the long answer, for my effort you can cut me in for 1% of your profit or a 6 pack whichever is greater
Is the app for any customer to find any mowing service, or my customers to book me. My customers dont want any lawn service to come to their house and provide a err, variable level of service.
this is a customer service job,, its much easier if your pretty good with people, talking about what they need, how you work and what you can do for them. i cant imagine telling people they need an app instead of just putting my name in their phone and sending a message or calling, im sure heaps of them dont even know my business name.
my 4 days of residential has about 30 jobs (busy right now) mostly lawns, some 1/2 days etc. over 25 of these are repeats booked by me, this direction monday, that direction thursday, 6 in one street friday. Lunchtime at home or close to facilities. Green waste jobs together to fill the trailer.
the other 5? things like;
the real estate, can you chop down a tree for me? when can you do it?
the answer partly depends on when i need an empty trailer for landscape material or a ride on
new customer, can you mow my lawn
where are you?
_ _ _ _ _
is it ok or a jungle
ill be nearby on thursday, i can meet you at about 8 or 11, if its quick i can do it at the same time,
New customer, can you mow my lawn?
Where are you
_ _ __ _ _
Nah, i dont mow there, good luck
A list customer,

Sure, ill make it work somehow
Then when youre not flat chat, you book up your work around the dodgy weather day, unless youre going fishing. then you book around the best weather and tides.
Then the mrs says can you take the kids to school or have lunch on this day,
you work hard for every dollar in this game, you can work really hard and not make money too. thats the difference between being busy and being productive.
Thats some of what the app needs be able to adapt to, a phone calendar and a bit of a routine with some flexibility works for me
about that 6 pack
