The average customer can encounter various challenges when trying to choose the right local service. Some of the common problems include:
- Lack of Trustworthy Information
- Price Variability
- Difficulty in Comparing Services
- Fear of Being Scammed
- Limited Access to Reviews
To overcome these challenges, we launched BestProsInTown. In 2019, when our website went live, we began gathering information about hair and nail salons, beauty services, and spas in our local communities. The main goal was to collect and provide our customers with information such as addresses, opening hours, photos, customer reviews, and price lists. After covering our neighborhood, we expanded to nearby cities. By the end of the year, we had collected info about beauty and wellness businesses all across the country.
When we used our website to search for local pros for our everyday needs, we came to the conclusion that a high rating is not always a foolproof solution for preventing fake reviews or bad service. From 2020 to 2021, our main focus was on enhancing our model to better comprehend the pros and cons of each business. Additionally, we initiated the development of an AI-based system for detecting fake reviews. Based on these models we are currently collecting and publishing our "Best Pros In Town listings".
Today, in addition to Beauty and Wellness category, we're collecting and aggregating more local services including Home Services (Plumbers, Electricians, HVAC Services, Roofing, Flooring, Carpet Cleaning), Pet Care Services(Veterinarians, Dog Boarding, Pet Groomers), Automotive Services, Medical and Healthcare, Lawyers so far.
BestProsInTown is now a fast-growing website with a main ambitious goal: to make your life easier by helping you find the best local pros in town!
