Company / App Name: Dunlist
What does it do?
Dunlist is a site/Facebook app that allows self employed, small businesses to build / share profiles about their services. People can search for services and will see their Facebook friends listed first in search results.
Why do we need it?
1. Most self employed people do not have their own web sites.
2. The profiles provide a nice clean snapshot of information about services.
3. Easy/Free to share, cheap to advertise on Facebook
4. People like to hire their friends.
Who is it for?
Caters to self employed individuals, small businesses, side jobbers, weekend warriors, hobbyists, contractors, freelance workers and anyone that wants to hire a service provider.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
Most sites cater to official business and people with sites. We cater to anyone that offers a service, even if its just mowing on weekends. As a Facebook app, profiles are easy to post / share and people searching can see their friends.
We intend to to develop a more complex sharing and eventually hope to build a platform to allow users to advertise their profile with Facebook.
