I know you’re asking yourself the same question I asked when we began to develop the idea for our social app platform, MySyde™️: how is this social app any different from all the other social media type platforms out there?
Other platforms are limited. Try finding a landscaper, pool guy, housekeeper, or taco truck on different platforms. Go ahead. I’ll wait…
What did you find? Now, how do you know they are any good? Ratings and reviews? Do you trust those ratings and reviews?
The problem with apps that depend solely on ratings and reviews is that you can’t always trust those reviews. Did that person actually use that service? What if they were just having a bad day and decided to write a bad review?
Service providers are suing platforms because of the false negative reviews they receive.
The only time I am ever inclined to write a review is when I have a terrible experience. I’d bet there are many people like me in this world, which then skews the results.
Other platforms, like popular social media networks, only allow you to market your business to those you are already connected with unless you want to pay for ad space. But people on these platforms are trained to ignore ads. Basically, it’s a waste of money.
When you want to find a good plumber, housekeeper, or landscaper, what you really do is ask your friends and family. You ask your real estate agent. Unquestionably, you depend on people you are already connected with AND trust.
What if we had that type of word-of-mouth recommendation from trusted friends on a digital platform? Well, we do, at MySyde.
MySyde has ratings and reviews because that’s how society has conditioned you and me to interact with these platforms. We’d love not to have any ratings and reviews at all (and you can make that happen if you subscribe to the Go-Getter tier). Ultimately, MySyde™️ is different because we’ve taken word-of-mouth digital. No more depending on ratings and reviews to help you determine who to hire for your needs. Look for the service provider you need, and filter them based on recommendations from your connections on MySyde.
For example, you’re looking for a new housekeeper. Unfortunately, no one you know is a housekeeper. You know me. You trust me. I’m not a housekeeper. But I have a housekeeper I love and recommend. You see that housekeeper on MySyde and see my endorsement of them. Because you trust me, you trust them and hire them on the spot.
Now you’re throwing a party and want a taco maker for it. Go on MySyde and repeat the process above. Done. Now you need a unique Christmas craft as a gift. Go on MySyde and repeat. Done.
MySyde is transforming how we hire gig workers, service providers, and small business owners.
