Where Good Neighbors and Good Servicemen Meet

The Kool Konnection

(Contractor Version)

 

Kool Kontractor Advertising

No one is perfect, but those who try to do the right thing should be recognized. Word of Mouth Pages invites good contractors and good customers to identify themselves. We call them Preferred Kontractors and Kool Kustomers … or just Kontractors and Kustomers.

Other communities have report-driven service directories that try to identify bad contractors. In contrast, we want to locate the good guys. Furthermore we believe a good serviceman deserves a good customer.

Kustomers are encouraged to leave post-repair feedback. Positive feedback will be posted immediately on the website. Negative feedback will be reviewed first. (Part of my job is screening to ensure responsible feedback.)

Feedback can be read by any registered Word of Mouth Pages participant. Good feedback will send new kustomers to the good repairman.

The comparison between the good and the bad—the kool and the unkool—is given below.

The Registered Contractor

Contractor registration also gives all the privileges of a Kool Kustomer. It's not necessary to register twice. This is a fabulous resource for everyone who appreciates quality workmanship.

Three Levels of Contractor Participation

Level 1—In order to provide a complete directory, we listed about 2,300 contractors at the entry level (free listing). Still, their participation is limited. Unregistered contractors are encouraged to register, and there's no charge.

Level 2—Once registered, the entry level contractor can make changes to his listing, and add extra categories. He will be notified when feedback has been left on one of his jobs, and he can post his response on the website—still no charge. The registered Contractor will receive periodic email notices reminding him to check his listing, and make necessary updates.

Level 3—The Preferred Kontractor pays a reasonable advertising fee. He does quality work at a reasonable price. If you want to be on the list, use the Contact Us feature.

Contractor Registration (Free)

All contractors, even those who are already listed in the lower level, are encouraged to register. Registration allows us to keep accurate up-to-date listings for each advertiser: Contractor Registration.
