How CanYa is super excellent for service providers

Out with the Old School….

Tradies – Tutors – Babysitters – Cleaners – Gardeners – Handymen of the world.

The pain is over!

Here is how a home service providers used to get work and do jobs:

Discovery

  • Pay for Google AdWords, Yellow Pages, website hosting fees
  • Expensive lead-fees from other home-improvement apps (average subscription cost is $300/year plus pay-per-quote fees!), often with nothing to show for it.

Problems: Nobody knows how great you are. You do quality work and want to be paid your normal rate. Other job apps make you compete with other providers in a race to the bottom. Advertising yourself is expensive and time consuming.

CanYa makes looking for work really easy. Search in Darwin, Adelaide or Melbourne and you will find CanYa is the best way for more work

Quoting

  • You receive phone calls whilst working,
  • Quoting is guess work based on a phone call; not enough information to give accurate quotes. The alternative is time out to organise a house visit.

Problems: Quoting wastes a lot of time you could be working. You waste a lot of time quoting people who don’t want to pay your fair prices or who cannot schedule a mutual time.

Invoicing

  • You spend evenings invoicing with Xero or MYOB.
  • Chasing up payments is a pain.
  • Quarterly GST figures. Ugh, get a calculator, notepad & pen.
CanYa makes invoicing and GST BAS statements really easy. Enhance.
Invoicing… somebody automate it PLEASE!

CanYa to the rescue

So we all know that the old process is fragmenteddisjointed and overall, just broken! Welcome to the 21st century!

The old job booking process is broken and expensive. The new CanYa experience is easy, clean and intuitive

Creating a CanYa Profile:

OK let’s dive straight in. Creating a profile is super easy; and FREE:

You can add your qualifications, prices (callout, fixed-rate, hourly rate), photo’s and more.

You can add multiple categories, with unique descriptions and images in each category! Set which categories you want to quote, and which can be instant-book. For big jobs, optionally set a 20% cancellation fee if the client cancels within a specified window.

Let’s set availability:

Setting your availability with CanYa allows you to indicated when you want to work. You will not be bothered outside of these times

And blank out next Tue-Thu when on another job:

The CanYa Calendar is a free tool to sort out your local business.

Now sit back and wait for job requests… 🍹

I get an SMS from CanYa: “New Quote Request”.
Awesome.
Somebody has already read my profile, prices and availability.
This won’t be a time waster:

The CanYa Job requests has all the information that you would require to quote on a job

Excellent – that’s everything I need to to give an accurate quote.

Quoting is free with CanYa; very easy to get all the information you need and to quote on the spot.

Excellent: the client accepted. I can use the calendar and in-built map with driving directions to find my way.

Finding your way to the job is usually difficult, just use CanYa's in-built driving directions to the job

If I need to talk to the client, I use the in-built messaging or calling:

In-app messaging is simple with CanYa because it is all integrated into the job, no lost information.

 

⛏️ I do the job  ⛏️

The job is done, now immediately send the client an invoice to pay:

The client pays me on the spot, and CanYa immediately credits my balance.
After the card payment has cleared, I can transfer it directly to my bank.

CanYa Account shows you all of your transactions and allows you to be paid with the tap of a button.

CanYa deducts a transactional fee for its services, only if the job is completed and you are paid. Everything else in the platform is completely 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.

canya_phones-displaying
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!

cropped-828_315_new1-01.jpg

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!

CanYa represents change

I can honestly say CanYa represents change. The service is forming a revolution of opportunity for families and workers around Australia. It’s actually exciting to imagine what this game changing app is going to bring to our big city. Download the app today to join the  community of over 4000 users already!

Before and After – Let CanYa change your life!

Before

I consider myself to be a pretty “clean” person. I keep my house tidy, there is minimal mess and I wipe down the benches after cooking. That’s clean right?

When was the last time you properly cleaned the oven/microwave, really cleaned the bathroom or actually mopped the kitchen floor?

I have a full time job and when I come home or have a weekend off, the last thing I feel like doing is getting elbow deep in my toilet. I think the only thing worse than spending my weekend cleaning is dealing with cleaning agencies or finding a cleaner that I can trust!

After

There has to be a solution right? It is the 21st Century – I have a smartphone, some money and the desire for an easier life. So, the question remains.

How do you find a good value cleaner that you can trust?

Enter CanYa – Australia’s best way to hire local services! Because CanYa requires mutual feedback/reviews after every job, you can be sure that the cleaner is everything they claim to be.

The process is simple:

  1. Download CanYa; the best way to find trustworthy cleaners
  2. Have a look around your area for “Cleaners” (there are categories for house, office, car, graffiti, carpet, high pressure etc). For Adelaide’s best Cleaner (House) click here!
  3. You can Broadcast a job to the entire crowd or select the cleaner that you want (you can bias Rating, Price or Availability)
  4. Live the good life not needing to clean on your days off!

How to have a dog and keep your independence!

The vicious cycle

Everyone knows the struggle; it is very real. You want (read: NEED) a dog but you are too rational. You know that it wouldn’t be fair for the dog to have both a dog and your current lifestyle. Up until now you are just caught in the vicious cycle:

cycle-of-wanting-a-dog
Don’t pretend like this doesn’t happen daily

 

Fear not, you are not alone in this struggle:

How does it work?

  1. Download Australia’s best app for hiring local providers (for FREE)
  2. Search through the category you want and find the provider you want to hire (you can bias quality, price, availability, reviews etc)

How do you find a babysitter that you can trust?

“Just hire a babysitter”

If you’re a parent, you’ve almost certainly heard this from your friends in the lead up to any social occasion. Well that is easier said than done.

You can’t always rely on friends and family to look after your kids – sadly they have social lives too (very inconsiderate of them!). When your go-to sitters aren’t an option, finding someone who meets your standards and is available can be tough. The search alone can take up much of your valuable time.

When parents are in search of a babysitter, the top 5 qualities are:

  • Previous experience
  • Genuine interest in children
  • Cost
  • Availability
  • Own transport

And finally, the most sought after quality – someone who is trustworthy.

So the question remains, how do you find babysitters you can trust to look after your kids?

Fear not, CanYa is here to solve all of your babysitter needs!

The solution to your babysitter woes

iphone_canya_babysitters

CanYa is Australia’s best services app and finding trusted, verified and reviewed babysitters is easier than ever. It is a platform where local providers can establish their skill set and let their work speak for itself. The providers verify their ID and receive peer-peer reviews on every job. Parents can now peruse all available babysitters and select the person they want to mind their kids- all of the important information is available to them.

This is exactly what two families in Darwin have done already with Courtney Furlan. After CanYa launched in Darwin in December 2016, Courtney jumped onboard straight away. She has quickly picked up two jobs babysitting and has earned herself a couple of 5 star reviews!
