It is also called porch. They are teaming up with Lowe's to recommend 4 professionals per industry (including carpet cleaning) per store. They want $300 for 2 stores per month to be apart of the program. The sales rep "claims" each of the companies will get 4-5 jobs per month from each store that you are apart of.
I wondered if any of you have heard of this or are part of the program.

Thanks

If there is not quality control built into the system to weed out bad cleaners then it will fail. Amazon services will track feedback on the jobs done to quantify the quality of the cleaners.

Dewars or Johnny red/black mainly. But I'll step down and throw down some J&B occasionally. On the rocks.

If $300 is the cost per month, then I would have a minimum cost per job that they send. If it's 4 jobs guaranteed, I would tell them I need a minimum of $400-$450/job if I"m gonna pay them that much/month

I looked up the website and I only saw a "home cleaners" section out of all the services. I don't know if they're gonna add a carpet cleaner's section or not. But if they plan on grouping us in the home cleaners...screw that! That automatically insults and downgrades our services. It will make it impossible for us to have a decent minimum price for what they'll want us to pay

I agree with Jim, we have our own word of mouth network...sick of everyone trying to sell us leads. I set up a porch profile as a citation, not knowing what it was. Listed name, address, phone, and added pics. The next day I went back to add more pictures and realized they had changed my phone number to theirs. So I deleted the account.
