Those of you out there that know me, will know that I’ve never been one to shun the outsourcing of the mundane and downright repetitive. Far from it in fact – I consider it money well spent. This generation of mothers have it particularly hard, we are expected to play much more of an active role in the upbringing and education of our children, than any generation before us. All whilst being the perfect housewife and holding down a demanding career at the same time. So yes, if there is ever a chance to cut corners, I take it. Whether that be outsourcing the creation of healthy, nutritious meals, hiring a cleaner, a dog walker or gardener – sign me up!
So when Bidvine came along, with a whole streamlined system to aid me in my quest, I have to admit, I was pretty happy. From doing your chores to pursuing your passions, Bidvine makes hiring trusted local service professionals ridiculously simple.
This time, we were looking for piano lessons, for our son. So off we went to post our requirements on Bidvine and sit back and wait for the offers to come in. The whole process, took a matter of minutes – it was really, really simple. First, we answered a few service-specific questions so they could match our need to the right pros for the job. They asked us a few questions specific to the type of service we needed help with. This is to help pros understand what you need and give a more accurate bid estimate.
A few examples of the questions we answered:
How many years of previous formal training have you had?
Are you able to read music?
How old is the student? (You must be 18+ to request a teacher on Bidvine. The student can be any age.)
Please tell your future teacher a little bit about yourself.
Please list your short- and long-term lesson goals?
They then sent our job request to trusted local professionals who could help with what we needed. They shared the answers that we provided to the service-specific questions and our general location.We love that they sent our request out to matching pros right away.
You should get your first bids within hours, you’ll get a maximum number of bids based on the service, and usually get 2 pros expressing interest. Pros do pay a small fee, but that’s only when they want to send you a custom bid using Bidvine.
Basically everything you’ve ever wished someone would just do for you, is available on this genius little app. You know, like assembling that flat pack furniture from your latest IKEA binge? Or maybe just mowing the lawn, because you’ve had a long week at work and you just don’t want to?
I recommend this service to busy parents everywhere, just use the free Bidvine iPhone app to submit new projects, read bids, and hire the right pro. I cannot tell you how good it feels to finally be making our way through our ‘to-do’ list. Your list of unfinished projects doesn’t stand a chance!
