It’s 8:02pm and my wife and I just put our kids to bed. Now I’m trying to figure out how to announce the new website that we’re launching at eNeighbors. It got me thinking about the beginning, when we started the company 11 years ago. And I couldn’t help but be filled with gratitude for everyone who helped make eNeighbors what it is today.
The list of people that have directly contributed to eNeighbors in one way or another is amazingly long, and for privacy reasons, I won’t list any names here, but you know who you are. And of course, without our customers, we would be nothing. So perhaps, most of all, I want to say thank you, to you – our customer.
It comes down to this – because you buy deals on eNeighbors, I can pay myself, and my employees. And we can continue to do the work that we love to do.
So, from the bottom of my heart, really, and truly, thank you.
In our Kansas City area neighborhoods – the only city where our eDeals program is offered – you have purchased over 50,000 deals from local businesses that offer service to the home – like lawn care, window washing, and carpet cleaning. And because you and many of your neighbors bought deals, we were able to negotiate bulk discounts with local service providers – saving everyone money, while helping local providers acquire new customers.
Your purchases represent over $4,000,000 in revenue for local service providers and an equal amount in savings just by buying together and scheduling together, one neighborhood at a time.
The success of eDeals in saving homeowners money and helping local providers grow their businesses, all while allowing us to grow our own business, has inspired us to build a new website dedicated to featuring money-saving deals from local service providers.
The new site will feature many of the deals from the service providers you’ve come to love. The user experience is greatly improved, however, especially on mobile devices.
Our “soft launch” is set for September 1st. An email with a link to the new site will be sent to all customers. More to come soon.
It’s time to get back to work…see you then.
