How It Works

Funnl is all about building communities and a big part of that is providing consumers with a reliable, reasonably priced directory of businesses to choose from. But unlike traditional directories, we only promote one of each business type in a city

Businesses that have agreed to our strict guidelines of etiquette. Businesses that agree to ensure the job is done right the first time.

We make sure there is always an incentive to choose our partners over the competition for your job. Whether it’s a local promotion, seasonal discount or monthly free service specials we are committed to bring excellent value and service to you the customer.
Unlike Angie’s List or Home Advisor, we require each business to complete a comprehensive application process. We only want to work with the best companies, companies that are committed to the customer. Where hiring a contractor or any other service is as easy as a few clicks. That way you can rest assured the job will be done in a timely manner and within budget.
Funnl provides all the tools a business needs to succeed. But a major part of that formula is ensuring the customer comes first. And the way we ensure that is to make each spot on our network extremely valuable. So valuable that a company would never risk being kicked off. To enforce this we have a three-strike rule in place. If we receive three verified complaints from customers the business is then kicked off the network and replaced with a competitor. As we grow the prestige of each spot will become more and more revered. Ensuring the service our partners provide always stays top-notch.
It’s not required to receive first-class service but by becoming a member of Funnl you are eligible for exclusive promotions and our world class customer support. Stuff no one outside the network has access to. Things like $99 teeth cleaning, $39 lawn service, free HVAC inspec


on. All kinds of amazing deals from the best service providers in town.



Think of Funnl as the Amazon marketplace of business. We sell services using all the tricks in the book. First, we take aspiring companies and inject their information onto our landing page. That landing page is a beautiful and well-optimized website called a cityFunnl.

We then load these cityFunnls up with professionally written monthly blogs. These blogs are used to target additional keywords related to that business. But it’s so much more than just a blog.
