The Scene: With only two weeks to go in the Vator Splash Startup competition, eBIDLIST enters the picture. 0 votes for eBIDLIST while the leaders in the playing field, whom have been in the competition for two months, had already racked up over 100 votes.
The Action: The eBIDLIST community, supporters, and customers rallied to get the popular vote for eBIDLIST. Users poured to the website and service needs were fulfilled real time.
Here is an email from an initially skeptic voter:
I wasn’t sure if voting for your company was the correct thing to do without experiencing your service you claim to offer. So, I requested a cleaning service for my home so I could try out your website before casting my vote. Within 12 hours I received 6 bids from house cleaners both above and below my asking price. I selected my house cleaner and within 3 days my service need was completed. I voted for you guys yesterday. Wish you the best of luck in your competition!
The Result: Within only 2 weeks, eBIDLIST moved from last place to 7th place out of 116 participating companies! Not only did eBIDLIST receive the popular vote, but they tremendously increased users and service professionals due to the explicit value delivered to its users.
eBIDLIST THANKS Janet for the kind email and everyone for your support!
