Sorry, no. If you hit Google, there are quite a few reviews available. I've just followed them since the company was pitched at a startup conference. I didn't think they had anywhere near the best pitch or idea, but they won the competition. I was wrong on that one. lol

Been using Redbeacon for about 2 years. You only pay for leads you want. The credit card and social thing is no big deal- it just lessens the number of low ballerina you compete against. I also use Thumbtack, Craigslist, and Redbeacon has brought the higher end maintenance stuff.

It has changed several times, but I believe I normally pay between $15 and $40, depending on the price of the service. But, you only pay for jobs you actually get. Or, if you need to see the property to give a quote then you can pay a lower amount. But again, you only pay if they choose you.

Sign up, see if you like it. You don't ever have to bid. At the very least you get a nice link to your website for google to like.

Not available in my area. It appears they are only set up for the larger cities right now. I did put a request in to be notified when they come to my area.

I am curious to hear if anyone has had more experience with redbeacon in the last year. I tried to request an estimate for lawn care in my small town and as far as I can tell it acted like there were no providers in my area. If that's the case I would love to be the only one.

What has your experience been? How big is your service area, and how many leads do you get? Thanks
