    Never heard of them tonne honest!
    I tried rated people with very little success years ago! Leads were too expensive but more than that 90% of the leads I did buy had totally unrealistic ideas of cost of work leading to no work!
    • Thanks Richard

  • Well I received loads of spam from them not to long ago. Do my direct email. Had a heated discusssion on why they thought it was ok to just spam legitimate businesses....

    On rated people. I tried it years ago. All I found was that people wanted the jobs done for very little. Or you wouldn't get to quote then you request your refund and they say you did quote.

    Gave up and didn't look back
    • Thanks James, I do wonder if it is a Fake, they are asking for a lot of money, and send me loads of Gardening jobs in very obscure villages, never the same place twice but leave very little information on the work.

        Bark isn't fake (they are members here).

        But it might not suit everyone. Hopefully they are getting something from your feedback?

    Here's an original post about Bark: http://landscapejuicenetwork.com/forum/topics/free-leads-on-bark-co...

    • Thanks Phil. Think its best to stick with Rated, by the way Rated people works really well for me. Have some good success albeit customers unrealistic pricing is more that they don't know what to declare rather than know what they want to spend. Compared to  advertising costs still very cheep. At least your reaching out to real customers.

      It would be good if there was a site for high end market.
