January 2, 2018: zenGOT, the robust new web-based network that matches customers with vetted, local household service providers, is in its preliminary launch in Vancouver and Calgary. zenGOT is looking for job-seekers and entrepreneurs to join its growing roster of service providers (known as zenGivers).
With the new year upon us and many people looking for ways to pay for holiday season spending, the timing of zenGOT’s launch is ideal for those looking for ways to earn extra income to pay their bills.
The platform uses the shared economy model to carry out zenGOT’s mission of making people’s lives easier by enabling customers to create more free time by accessing on-demand services, and giving zenGivers the opportunity to easily run their own business without the associated costs. zenGOT employs a business model similar to Uber and Airbnb: in exchange for a commission on services provided, the platform brings considerable value to workers through broad customer acquisition and marketing.
Features on the website include zenGivers’ abilities to: establish their own rates, set their availability, choose where they work, the services they provide, and accept the jobs they choose. Each zenGiver has a personalized profile page, which includes a photo and description, as well as reviews and ratings from previous bookings ensuring consistent and reliable, top-performing service providers in all categories.
zenGivers can select a variety of household services they would like to provide, including:
- Organizing or Decluttering
- Decorating or Home Staging
- Party or Event Help
- Errands or General Assistance
- Pet Services
- HandyPerson Work
- Life Coaching or Fitness Training
- Yard Work or Snow Removal
zenGOT is the creation of entrepreneur Catherine Goulet who, with business partner and sister Tag Goulet, co-founded FabJob Inc., the leading publisher of dream career guides and online career certificate courses (through IAP Career College). They have helped more than 500,000 people break into their dream career or start their own service business over the past 18 years. Their book Dream Careers ranked #1 in career and business books on Amazon.com when it was released. They’ve won accolades for e-business and are recognized as thought leaders in the career-related publishing world.
zenGOT was the natural next step for Catherine who states, “The zenGOT platform delivers on our brand promise Peace of Mind with the Gift Of Time by offering a system that benefits people on both sides.” Also, with the recent acquisition by IKEA of competitor TaskRabbit, which offered household services mainly in the US, it appears that TaskRabbit’s focus is now more on furniture assembly and deliveries, which has opened a space in the market for zenGOT. Goulet exclaims: “zenGOT’s goal is to become Canada’s largest on-demand home service provider before expanding into the US by late 2018. We welcome all zenGivers!”
