CanYa PT Day – Free fitness training in Adelaide

Australia’s best way to hire local service providersWeekend Workout!

A few weeks back in Adelaide, CanYa paired up with a local business owner and his employees to bring a change to some Adelaidian lives!

Mobile Physical Training Adelaide hosted a free PT day on Adelaide’s foreshore; down amongst families, joggers, cyclists and coffee lovers alike.

We approached Mobile PT as they were one of our first early adopters of the application in Adelaide and created high quality profiles.

Jumping jacks – simple but effective!

 

We sponsored the event to help raise awareness of our brilliant providers on the app!

We had Jake, a CanYa representative attend the event (much to his muscles regret) to participate and educate people about Australia’s best way to hire local service providers! And this is how he felt!

“The workout was intense and fun, plenty of variety with expert supervision at all times.” – Jake

 

What it feels like to work out for the first time in a while!

People from all walks of life came!

At the event we had around a dozen or so attendees arrive, friends, family, clients, young and “wiser”. Lachlan, our main instructor showed us a variety of exercises including: legs, arms, shoulders and core and we finished with some cardio. For the members whom arrive that struggled with any particular movements there were secondary PT’s watching us to help at anytime including technique corrections.

Bridges – “Keep those bums down!”

 

We were blessed with good weather and lush grass to workout to our very best! With a local marathon being run past we had plenty of curious onlookers and a few people came and enquired about what was going on!

This type of exercising, being outdoor and group orientated is different for most people and I highly recommend doing it. Especially if you loathe to sweat it out moving heavy things at the gym. Groups sessions are great for being down a partner to share some experiences and laughs with.

 

For those who have been to a gym before!

CanYa supports local businesses!

All in all, we at CanYa love supporting our local service providers; whether it is a young professional women looking to start out as a photographer, or a strapping young lad who has just finished his trade apprenticeship and wants to run his own business.

Say hello to CanYa – Australia’s best way to hire local services! We are not only providing a platform for local businesses, but we are actually creating business for them!

Stay tuned for more CanYa events in the Adelaide Region!

Sharing CanYa profiles with branch.io

CanYa’s Tech

In the last few years we have seen an explosion of specialised services, normally in the form of API’s (a good video to explain API is right here). At CanYa, we use a lot of third party services to leverage off of experts in a particular field, then build on top of those.

CanYa technology integration
CanYa’s integration of technologies

One of these that we particularly love is branch.io.

Users of CanYa probably won’t even notice that we are using an external service, but when you share your profile, it is powered by branch.io.

Sharing your CanYa link is simple. This one is https://app.canya.com.au/ROW484

 

How it works:

  1. Find your CanYa referral code in the main menu inside CanYa. Post on all your social media in the format:  app.canya.com.au/CODE (CAPS LOCK THE FIRST 3 LETTERS; eg: ABC123)
  2. Your friends & clients tap on the link.
    1. If they have CanYa installed already, it will open into your profile and favourite you.
    2. If they have not downloaded the app yet, it will take them to the App Store (either Apple iOS or Google Play Store). After installing, CanYa (with the help of branch.io) will know they tapped on your referral code, give you referral credit and ongoing CanYa Rewards!
    3. If you are on a desktop computer, you will be directed to our main website, https://canya.com.au

Referring is even easier with branch.io

There are multiple benefits to sharing your CanYa profile:

  • Receive $10 sign-up credit whenever somebody installs the app with your referral code!
  • Receive an ongoing 0.5% – 1.0% trailing commission (out of our fees) every time your direct or indirect referrals transact jobs inside CanYa. We call this CanYa Rewards.
  • Simply marketing your business through social media.

Nerd details

So why do we need to use a 3rd party service to do this?  Well, it turns out this is a difficult problem to solve well across a bunch of devices and platforms. Each device platform has a different way of opening apps from links; for example iOS uses Universal Links where your app registers for a particular URL, in this case app.canya.com.au

In order to do this, you would need to add an apple-app-site-association structured file to your website, handle image previews, descriptions and titles for each link so iMessage & Facebook previews work well, then accurately track & fingerprint users who click on your link, save their details then match with app openings minutes afterwards, plus deliver a data payload of referral codes and so on.

Nerd meme

All we do is CNAME app.canya.com.au to the branch.io server, who handle the rest, including recently adding TLS encryption (https) automatically using the wonderful letsencrypt.org

Branch.io basically handles all of this across multiple platforms. Free!

Melbourne; the wait is almost over!

CanYa launching in Melbourne very soon


CanYa; Australia’s best and most convenient way to hire local services
 is soon to be launching in our big city; Melbourne! The free to download app allows you to book in a service provider for just about any job or task you may need to be done.

Straight off the back other another successful launch (Adelaide), CanYa is coming to Melbourne!

It is quick and easy to use. No more endless searching for the best plasterer, gardener, babysitter and/or removalist because CanYa has it all under one app, and it’s launching in Melbourne!CanYa Phase - Blue

First of all, let me start off by expressing my undying love for Melbourne. We embrace innovation, excel in business and we’re home to the sporting capital of Australia.  I’ve lived here for the past year or so but I was originally an Adelaide boy.  The city is vibrant and full of wondrous culture and most importantly it presents massive opportunity for us hard workers.

Melbourne represents an opportunity for everyone!

Is it just me or do we Melbourne Hustlers seem to be working a lot harder for a lot longer?!

The seemingly endless search

I hate it when a job needs to be done and you are stuck without an easy option. The endless task begins of googling for the best service providers around.  You type in “the best cleaner” or the “cheapest plumber” and the search results come up with hundreds of different companies and services. None of these are peer-reviewed and they are all just competing against one another to get your attention.

My partner in crime is admittedly busier and a harder working than me so her time is even more limited (do not tell her I said that).  “I wonder what is the best and most convenient service around me to get this job done”. So 30 minutes has gone and I seem to be more confused. This was the struggle, until now.

So undoubtedly we are living through the biggest tech age of all time; surely there must be an app that does it all?

Thankfully there is an app that does it all, CanYa! CanYa is a one stop shop that allows you to Find, Book, Pay and Review local service providers.

The app is free to download and available on Android and iOS!

I must admit, the CanYa user experience is pretty darn cool! You have all these jobs around the house you need to get done but of course they all take TIME.

The reason why CanYa is so unique is you can get a CanYa provider to do ALL of these jobs for you. You can chat to your provider on CanYa chat (messaging or calling) before they even do the job. Once you’re happy you have the right provider, you can book your local service provider!

james_handyman_servicesThe most amazing part out all this is you can find a CanYa provider for practically any job that you want done. My personal favourite is the CanYa puppy walkers!

Stop Spending, Start Referring

Instant Referral Bonus!

You know that code you see on your left “hamburger” menu? Did you know that it is the key to you getting extra CanYa Credit for nothing?

CanYa_Unique Referral Code
CanYa Unique Referral Code

This is your Unique Referral Code (in the image above the code is “CAN456”). When you sign up to CanYa you are asked to put in a referral code. If you input a valid code you get $10 CanYa Credit for free. What you might not have known is the person that gave you the code also gets $10!

If you feel like you have been missing out, you can download Australia’s best services app AND receive $10 of CanYa credit by clicking here!

Ok, but is $10 really worth the effort of referring people?

Well, lets think about it for a second. If you get 5 of your mates onto the app then you now have $60 CanYa Credit for free (5 x $10, plus your initial $10 referral bonus). You could get a cleaner around to your house for a few hours.

Cleaning Supplies
Free cleaner? Sounds pretty good!

Ok, pretty cool but not sold

Well, could you get 20 people to download a free app? Definitely! Now you would have $210 and wouldn’t need to worry about paying for your next car service!!

Give10get10_mechanic
Give $10 and Get $10… save up for a mechanic!

I don’t drive a car

Ok, now you are being difficult… How about you get a Gardener to mow the lawn ($40) AND a Cleaner to clean the house ($60) AND a Babysitter to watch the kids on date night ($50) AND a Handyman to finally fix the broken door ($50)? Not bad, right?!

All Trades_CanYa Rewards
