HireRush, a professional services network at https://www.hirerush.com, launched a new feature allowing companies and individual service providers to create profiles in addition to traditional advertisements. Profiles allow service providers to share more business details, and they are prioritized in customer searches.
April 4, 2016 (Press Release) - HireRush.com, a platform connecting service providers looking to work with local customers, now allows companies and independent professionals to publish business profiles. These profiles can contain more detailed information about services offered and receive priority placement in customer search results.
New service provider profiles can include detailed service descriptions, provider skills, pricing information, portfolio details, operating hours, and available payment methods. Customers can also leave feedback on profiles in the form of ratings and reviews.
Profiles are given priority over traditional service ads in search results when customers search for local providers. Exact rankings in those searches are influenced by customer ratings as well as profile completeness.
"This new ranking system is designed to help customers find the right service providers faster," said Anton Guc, marketing director of HireRush. "Customers will be exposed to providers with more detailed service information in their profiles first. Visitors will also find more experienced and credible providers earlier in search results based on feedback from other customers. The more positive feedback a service provider receives, the more exposure their profile will get."
In addition to the online "call now" buttons also available on traditional service ads, provider profiles will offer an online messaging option. These include a "message business" button to contact companies or a "get a quote" option for contacting individual service providers. These messages are delivered to the profile owners via email as well as their HireRush dashboards.
Service providers can add a company or individual profile to HireRush by visiting www.hirerush.com/how-it-works/provider and clicking the "Create Your Profile" button to be guided through the process.
HireRush is a platform connecting vetted and community-reviewed service providers with customers through free service and project advertisements. The website launched in July 2015 with an initial focus on New York City. The service has since expanded, featuring over 24,000 ads for service providers across 711 U.S. cities in 35 states.
