I came across an interesting idea yesterday and I'm wondering what others think about it. Since this is a board about and for scoopers, I figured it would be a good place to get some feedback. (This would be in conjunction with other pet services.)

What if there were a 1800DENTIST for the pet industry; like 1800PETService.

The idea is that you would get the type of pets you specialize in for your area. Obviously if you're the only location, you'd get all the dogs. i.e. if you and your competitor signed up, but you prefer small dogs and they prefer corporate... You'd get FiFi and they'd get corporates. This would make you happier by prescreening your clients.

If you both had the same, it would get split up evenly or the service would best match the personality w/the sitter.


Would you sign up for it? What would you pay for this type of service?


I think they thought $15 per month, then $5.00 - $10.00 per qualified lead. Plus like $50.00 to sign up.(for initial paperwork, background searches, etc.) What would you pay?


The initial number needs to be fair in order to do background checks and the other necessary searches to make sure people were of good reputation, so it wouldn't affect other providers on the site.

(by qualified i mean, the 800# would take their cc# and make sure they're ready to pay and then pass them onto you.) :-D

The 800 phone directories are...obsolete.  Why have that when we have the web?

People want info right in front of them.  You can do that on the web.  Why make them call some other phone number?  if it is not the service company itself.

It's just more worthless advertising that wouldn't work.  The web man, the web is where it's at. 

In addition, how you going to market it?  The web?  lol, then why not just have the info on the website....
