With the growing GDP of most cities, homeowners like you and me are finding it harder and harder to make a living and taking care of the family, not to mention the growing issue of aging population and elder parents prone to accident or falling sick. We no longer have the luxury of a big family where family members can take care of one another.
We created searchmaid with 2 goals, the 1st was to address such issue. Ensuring that everyone get their ideal maid helper to assist them.
The 2nd goal was also to improve the livehood and working condition of the domestic helpers. Do you know that most domestic workers dont get a annual pay rise or even a retirement pension even after serving for 10 years or longer.
We hope to address this and improve on it. What have we achieve so far?
1. Provide free health protection plan for the 1st year, for all maid chosen via our search platform. These allows the worker to visit clinics within the whole of singapore over 1000 clinics at a discounted consultation fee of just $13. per visit.
2. Educate home owners to show empathy towards their maid through social media.
3. In midst of nego with china, once succeed , we can guarantee maid that show good performance a pay rise and career advancement.
The best growth metric is, since day one our team remains the same and so as the 190+ agencies that supported us.
What does your company do?
We help home owner find their right helper be it, part time or full time in singapore. through our alliance platform
Where will your company be in 5 years?
We want to have office across the whole of china, and asean, connect maids across countries and provide better live-hood for the domestic helper and assuring that home owner get better quality and trained helper.
Why is this a good idea, right now? What changed in the world? Why wasn't this done a few years ago?
We want to create a platform, where user can easily find their ideal maid, conduct interview instantly and also the maids are motivated to work for the employer. The 1st step was easy, its only recently with countries like cambodia and indonesia opening up their maids to other countries, where we can fulfill our vision of helping maid get a better prospect. Our aim is to send maid with good reviews and completed min. 2 years of work, to other higher paying countries through our searchmaid unique platform.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
We have more than 190+ agencies joined us in our 1st month and we also offer FREE health protection plan with every maid chosen from our site. This coming july 2019 , we will also be participating in Rise Hk, and we are in the midst discussion with china counterpart for our office. We are ranked 1st page in seo for all major maid related keyword. with our 1st year.
How far along are you? What's your biggest obstacle?
We are now boot strap as we dun have additional resources to grow our business development team and also our awareness campaign to mass market.
Who are your competitors? Who is the biggest threat?
honestly, our concept is very unique, unless our competitor adopt a hybrid model. closest i can think of is Helpling and Homage.
What do you understand that your competitors don't?
We are constantly looking at improving our platform not just for user but also at the foreign domestic helper and even towards the maid agency and agent. We been talking to all of them throughout our journey
