Exciting News: MyTime has gone Social!

September 25, 2014


Introducing MyTime Social: An easy way to get recommendations from all of your friends!

We know, you probably have your “regulars” for certain services. Maybe it’s your longtime hairdresser or neighborhood nail salon. However, we all need a good recommendation from time to time.

90% of consumers turn to online reviews…even if they can’t always trust them

Nowadays, many people turn to online reviews when in need of a recommendation. In fact, 90% of consumers say online reviews have influenced their decision to make a purchase. However, 85% feel the need to read at least 10 reviews(!) before they can trust the company. Who has time for that?

It’s hard to know which reviews to listen to because you usually don’t know the reviewer. So why not just ask your friends? Well, let’s face it: Sometimes we just get too lazy or busy to ask for help.

The MyTime team set out to create an easier way to get recommendations for local services…without solely relying on online reviews. So, without further ado, we’re excited to introduce MyTime Social.

MyTime Social lets you see which businesses your friends recommend. It’s fast and easy:

1. Connect your Facebook account to MyTime (don’t worry, we’ll never spam your contacts or post without your permission).

2. Browse for the service you need, and we’ll show your friends’ favorites. We’ll also send you an email.

3. Add the recommendations to your Favorites page. Then, book appointments with them using the MyTime website or mobile phone, 24/7.

But wait…there’s more! Here’s what else you can do:

  • Ask your friend a question: Have more questions about a business your friend recommends? Easily send a Facebook message to them. Just click on the message bubble next to your friend’s name. You don’t even need to leave MyTime!
  • Looking at a business your friends haven’t recommended? No worries. We’ll pull in all the reviews for that business (look for the MyTime ones – they are verified). Plus, we’ll show you how many people like their Facebook page.
