Situame: hire a freelancer nearby
Situame is a brand-new startup company looking to join the ranks of TaskRabbit and FancyHands. Since they are new, you will not find hoards of businesses all vying for your business, yet, but once Situame is up and fully running, this will likely change (good news for freelancers: little competition as of yet). Situame has created an app that lets you search for qualified professionals in your area and get results in less than a minute.
If you are in a new town for business or on vacation, and find yourself in need of a barber or baker, Situame can help. Using your location, you can see what services are available in the area. When you find someone you want to hire, you can immediately see their contact details.
Worrying about the bottom line
If you are worried about finding the best price, Situame can help with that too. From your mobile device, you can ask for different estimates and proposals and compare them. So if one bakery offers you a discount on snacks and desserts for your business conference and another offers you a far better price; you have room to bargain. Being able to leverage one business’ price against another can make all the difference in your budget. Also, if you are at a conference out of town, being able to see what the closest option is, can save you money on delivery charges as well.
For businesses, this gives you the possibility to expand your business, by reaching local clientele. This is a good time to make sure your contact information is updated, so people searching for your service can find you, quickly. Also, this is a good time to check out what type of competition is in the neighborhood, if you have not already. You should be aware of the prices you competition charges so that if a potential client begins a conversation with you through Situame, you will be able to beat your competition easily and gain new customers.
