Complaint Review: ServiceMagic
ServiceMagic Insiders opinion based on over a years experience Internet, Internet
If you are a consumer just remember the old adage "you get what you pay for" and "if it seems to be to good to be true it just might be". In the case of ServiceMagic you need to question why you are not paying for their service and who is paying?
If you are contractor remember that ServiceMagic makes a profit for each lead they sell. [continued below]....
The bottom line is that ServiceMagic is a poor investment of you ad dollar, after year of working with their system we had conversion rate of 1/55 leads at a cost over $1,400 per conversion. We would have been better off to have had someone stand on a street corner and hand out $20 bills with our card attached than to use ServiceMagic.
Our firm has a 4.96 star rating with Yelp, Google and ServiceMagic so we are not some flake. But what I learned was that most ServiceMagic contractors are one man operations looking to make a quick dollar. If you are a consumer ServiceMagic should be a last resort after calling everyone in the phone book and on the internet. If you are a contractor take the money you would spend with ServiceMagic and buy your wife and kids a trip to Disneyland, at least you will have some fun with the money and not feel like someone just stole it.
In conclusion ServiceMagic is the Ripoff poster child for the consumer and contractor "beware of this dog it bites everyone".
