Firstly, ensure you have the app installed on your mobile device.

Secondly, simply search for the service you are looking for by typing it in the search bar.

Maate search Maate search electrician

BAM!! That’s it!

The search results you are presented with will ONLY be people you already know… no strangers you can’t trust. Isn’t that great!

No, the beauty of Maate is that anyone can offer a service, and you can offer whatever you like.

Are you an office worker by day, but baby sitter by night?
Are you an accountant by day, but football coach on weekends?
Are you in between jobs, but have skills you can offer right now?
Are you a mechanic, and looking to expand your client base?

Add your services to Maate to be found by everyone that knows you.

It’s word of mouth in your pocket.

Of course!

Maate is a great marketing platform that works together with your current strategy.

At the moment you spend plenty of time and money trying to get your business in front of people you don’t know. Adding your business to Maate targets the market you have been missing, the people you already know!

We all know how powerful word of mouth is, Maate is word of mouth on steroids!

What is the Network Effect?

The Network Effect is the effect one user has on the value of a service for other people using it. It is when a service becomes more valuable as more people use it.

A good analogy is the telephone. If only 2 people in the world have telephones, then the telephone is of not much value. Because let’s say that I am one of those 2 people with a telephone. I can only call the other person, and no one else. But, when more and more people have telephones, then the value of the telephone and the telephone service increases. Now I can call many people…the telephone is worth having.

Why is it so important for Maate?
Just like the telephone, the more people using our app, the more valuable it becomes, the more connections we all have access to.

Help us spread the word, tell your friends, tell your mechanic, tell your babysitter, tell your web designer, tell your personal trainer… tell everybody! (use the share buttons at the bottom of the page)
