Your house is the reflection of your personality; it speaks on behalf of you. The way you design and paint it tells a lot about your character. There are chances that you probably select colors to which you can relate the most. But, let us tell you, not many people know that orange and blue are perfect combinations!
Who will let you know all the color theory? Probably, you need to connect with an expert, a house painter, isn’t it? Here starts the real task of finding a reliable and experienced house painter.
However, this hassle has become less complicated with the usage of technology. Technology penetrated human lives and made it more convenient & functional. Just a couple of taps on the smartphone, and you have your services on the go. Such “on the go” applications are generally known as “Uber for X” and have raised $1.6 billion by providing services like home services, house cleaning, home repairs, laundry, etc.
Also, these “Uber for X” services are now available for house painting services too. The user can book an online house painting service and receive the services within a few hours.
If you wish to serve in the house painting industry, it would be ideal for building an app and bringing a revolution to your business. It will put you in contact with thousands of people literally, which would have been impossible if you choose the word of mouth marketing approach.
In this article, we have listed a few things you need to consider before developing an Uber app for house painting.
Address the customer’s pain point and try to provide a solution for the same:
The common issue faced by the customers looking out for a house-painting service is the difficulty in getting service booking at their favorite time. Hence, if you are planning to develop an app for house-painting, then you need to make sure that there are various time slots available for booking. Therefore, you need to analyze the pain points of your audience and work in the direction of making their lives less stressful. Also, ensure that your service adds value to their lives.
Check the convenience and the affordability of the service:
Uber for X business models is quite affordable to the user. However, along with the affordability, you need to check that the service is convenient for the user. You need to stick to the thought of “convenience” and ensure that all your on-demand house-painting app features follow the same.
Not to forget, convenience is applicable even to the features and functionality of the app. The user should be able to book services in a few seconds, and the job should be done within the promised timeframe. Allow the user to put forth their requirement before they book a service for house-painting.
Provide a walk through the gallery:
Right when the user registers in your house painting app, provide a questionnaire to them. This form should include their color preferences, wall preferences, texture preferences, location, temperature, and wall preferences.
This will roughly give you an idea about their likes and dislikes so that you can provide them suggestions accordingly. Make a corner along with the list of painters and their work gallery in the app. By doing this, the user gets a better idea about the painter and trusts them more for booking the house-painting service.
A bonus tip: You can also make a provision for the users to provide an idea or the recommendation for their house-painting. Allow them to upload a photo or talk to the consultant and find the best solution for their project. Thus, by making the audience feel unique and personal, you are distinguishing your app from the competitors.
