What if....

What if there was a website for us to review customers? There's plenty of website for people to review us so wouldn't it be nice if we could review them? Then we would know if they were good or bad, slow or fast payers, easy to deal with blah blah blah. Am I the only one that thinks this would be a good idea?

I've thought about this before.

A website where lawn pros could add PITA customers to a list and review them to warn other companies.

And why couldn't LawnSite be used for this purpose? Add a dedicated regional section?

I guess it easily could be the only downfall would be that probably a lot of the companys around me anyways most likely don't even get on lawnsite. If a lot of people around you do use lawnsite then it would work great

Probably the hardest part of doing something like that would be informing other lcos about it and getting them to do it too

If companies started posting about any client's with name or address to identity them. Which you would have to to make the postings work. I could see all sorts of lawsuits. And also it could backfire very quickly. I would never hire a company that posts clientele info on Internet.

This would definitely be the biggest obstacle to overcome but what if it was just a private network type thing just for people in this industry?

How is there any difference between what we are discussing and AngiesList. Other then of course Angieslist advises the consumer on "shady" contractors?

If you search the archives, we've taken a couple dives into this topic. Long story short, it's more fun to daydream about it that it is remotely realistic or useful.

I don't think you'll find that Lawnsite would touch this with a 10' pole.
