Identify Ways to Improve Your Profile
It shouldn't be too difficult to determine what your competition is doing to get more requests. The most common factors are:
- Rates: Is your pricing in line with the other companies in the area? Price and value are the most important factors when choosing what mover to hire, so you want to make sure you are competitive. Learn more: Your Price in Search Results (Rate Calculation)
- Credentials: Most customers want to hire a professional mover and your credentials go a long way in showcasing that professionalism. Does your profile reflect all of your credentials? If not, you should add them immediately
- Background Check: Did you know that users can filter their results to only show movers with a background check? If you don't have one, you should. Learn how to add a background check
- Services & Equipment: Do you offer specialty services or equipment? If so, is this reflected on your profile? If not, you should update your service rules right away
Make A Short Term Change
If you've compared your company to the competition and believe that your profile is not the issue, then it's time to look at other options. A good example of this would be a newly listed mover that doesn't have any reviews. Reviews go a long way in winning over a customer, and it can be hard to stand out against the competition without any. The best way to get noticed is to reduce your rates in the short term. Having a lower rate than your competition, even without any reviews, is likely to get you noticed. Once you have those hard-won reviews you can change back to your normal rates.
