The beginning

Posted 8 years, 10 months ago by Ben Stanton    2 comments

Well, it has begun . . .

I have just spent two weeks building the onefreeday website so I thought I could spare a sec or two writing a blog.

 

So - what's this onefreeday all about?

onefreeday was born out of the need to generate some fast, hot sales leads for my small electrical business.

Work had all but dried up.

It was as simple as this: Give away one free day of work each month, just give it away, and watch the customers line up.

Then it dawned on me: why not let people register on a website for genuine free electrical work and pick one winner and contact the rest to offer a free quote or with a "great deal".

As the concept grew, (over the course of 2-3 hours) I talked about it with some other business owners and they said they wanted to be a part of it too

So onefreeday.co.nz was established/started.

The idea just keeps growing too - for example, this is the perfect platform for small businesses to support charity. So we are now getting charities involved. Every one in ten of the free days that the businesses give will go to support a charity, or they can just donate the money.

Now I just have to balance the number of public registering with the businesses wanting to come on board.
