On Freelancing, can I ask questions that are not from the perspective of a freelancer, but rather from the prospective customer of a freelancer? For example, would it be on-topic to ask for a website recommendation where I would seek to hire a freelancer? Specifically, would the following question be welcome?
Looking for a web application that brings handymen etc. and their customers together
I'm looking for a web application where customers can review the work of handymen, painters, cleaners, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, etc.: anyone performing manual labour for others for a fee. On the web platform I envision, the handyman (etc.) advertises their services, and customers can review and rate their work. Perhaps it also includes a service where customers can post a request and handymen can bid to carry this out. What Tripadvisor and Kayak are for hotels, what Urbanspoon is for restaurants, and what Yelp is for businesses in general.
I am aware of werkspot, but this is only for The Netherlands. My existing approach is to look at craigslist/kijiji/gumtree or whatever the localised equivalent is, but searching for a particular service will yield many results with no way of systematically estimating previous customer satisfaction.
Can anyone recommend a web application according to my description?
