Headquartered in Golden, Colorado, ServiceMagic connects consumers with screened and approved local service professionals. Their network consists of over 80,000 customer-rated service pros in hundreds of categories, such as home improvement, cleaning services, photography, senior care, videography and more. All ServiceMagic pros carry the ServiceMagic Seal of Approval, which includes a rigorous screening process, including criminal background checks, and state-level trade licensing when applicable. ServiceMagic was recently named Colorado Technology Company of the Year and they draw in nearly four million unique visitors to their website each month.
Consumers visit the ServiceMagic website (http://www.servicemagic.com) or call 877-800-3177 and complete a free service request form, answering a series of specific questions, such as job type, scope and location, to ensure the appropriate professionals are approached with the right request. The company then uses proprietary technology to instantly route the request to service members who have indicated an interest in leads in that specific area and field of work. The requests and consumers contact information are sent immediately to 3-4 ServiceMagic members via e-mail, cell-text messaging, phone, pager or fax so they can contact the consumer directly to discuss the requested project. At the same time, consumers are sent the service professionals’ profile information, contact information, past Customer Ratings & Reviews and a link to each professional’s Web site.
