National prize goes to Keswick consumer

When Keswick resident Kate Simpson was picking out her tiles, she did not imagine that her tiling work might be paid for by somebody else. That is exactly what has happened: as the latest lucky winner of the monthly free draw on www.tilerworld.com/abcd, she is receiving back the £250 cost of the project. Kate was entered automatically into the draw by posting a rating of her tiler’s work onto the site.

Winning the monthly prize was the icing on the cake for Kate, as she was already delighted with the work carried out by fixer Neil Smith. “Neil was great,” she said. “Always on time, did a lovely job and I could trust his advice completely.”

Naturally, she gave Neil a positive rating on TilerWorld — and posting that rating was all that Kate had to do for entry to the free draw. “I’m delighted for Kate,” said Neil Smith. “TilerWorld is a fabulous site, both for tilers and customers. Even if you don’t win back the cost of your tiling, you still know that you are dealing with a top-quality tiler.”

Every customer using a rated tiler listed on www.tilerworld.com is encouraged to submit their own rating of their tiler’s work, with the incentive of a free prize draw. Each month, one lucky customer wins the value of their tiling, up to a maximum of £1,000.

The customer rating system is a key reason for www.tilerworld.com‘s impressive growth since its launch at the beginning of the year. It allows a consumer to find a list of professional tilers in their area and compare how each has been rated by previous customers. The consumer can then request up to five tilers to quote for their tiling project. More than 5,000 fixers have registered with the site, with more joining every day. As well as being able to show customer ratings, each is also able to upload photographs of their work. The site is free to use for both tilers and their customers.
