There is nothing better than a personal recommendation or reference, right? Let me introduce you to a fabulous new free app called, Knowzz, which is designed to make your life so much easier! The Knowzz app finds local services recommended by people you already know and trust: your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues.
In the world of parenting, I think we tend to rely even more on recommendations from trusted sources. Because we want the best for our kids. Personally, I tend to ask for references in my mommy circle of friends and post questions on social media.
The Knowzz app now creates the opportunity for you to be part of peer-to-peer network that gives you access to trusted and recommended local service providers that you need immediately.
As a mama, think about all of the local services you or your family may use on a weekly/monthly/annual basis.
Here are just a handful – pediatricians, dentists, nutritionists, allergists, babysitters, yoga instructors, plumbers, pool services, pest control, hair salon, nail salon, attorneys, an accountant…and the list goes on and on.
No more scrolling down random online reviews (by people you don’t even know!), or having to poll your entire Facebook community to ask for a pediatric dentist recommendation in your own neighborhood. Sounds good, right?! Read more to see how to get started.
How does the Knowzz App work?
Knowzz is available for iOS and Android, and offers users (like you!) instant access to service providers that your friends use and recommend.
After you download the app, you will be asked to sync your contacts. Don’t worry – Knowzz will not share your contacts. They treat all contact information as strictly proprietary. The app simply needs access to your contacts so that you can share recommendations within your peer group.
After your contacts are synced with the app, any business or services that you already have saved in your contacts will pop up – you can choose to give them a “thumbs up” and recommend them – or leave them unchecked if you would not like to recommend them.
Next, the app will surf your area for potential businesses, and you can start looking for what you need. You can also start inviting your friends to join this free service too.
Think about it this way – the more friends that are on the app, the more trusted recommendations you will get…and be able to give in return!
What can I expect?
Knowzz is all about sharing positive recommendations. This is not a platform for negative reviews…this is a community of local friends, neighbors and colleagues that will give you the “stamp of approval” on a local service you may need.
This is an online forum of people you trust…and a way to accrue a fantastic library of local recommended services.
I encourage you to download and check it out! I think this is such a cool idea, and can’t wait to put it into action for myself. Just the other day I was polling my Facebook network for a recommended martial arts studio for my four-year-old…and this is exactly the type of thing that Knowzz app would be perfect for!
