How do you extend the Uber model to not just car rides but to local merchants? By creating ClubLocal, ReachLocal’s new space that makes it easy for anyone to schedule and book a local merchant for their needs all through their phone in less than a minute. Just like Uber, ClubLocal allows you to book a merchant on your phone, see the estimated time of arrival of the merchant, complete the task on hand, and close the transaction back on your phone with payment and ratings.
So that leak in your kitchen that started in the morning can now find a highly reviewed and qualified local plumber in a matter of minutes, book one in seconds, see the estimated arrival, and ultimately have that leak fixed within a couple of hours.
