If you are looking for the best of the SA web whether this means sourcing banking, fashion, news, travel or shopping – it is thanks to the internet that just about anything is only a few clicks away. How, then, can you separate the wheat from the chaff?
Hellopeter’s site came to Peter Cheales whilst on a flight from Joburg to Cape Town. With so many people telling him tales of woe and poor service – listening and advising were just not enough, resulting in Hellopeter becoming the go-to website for service-related issues.
Peter launched his site in February 2000 and it was soon receiving an average of 150 complaints and compliments a day, but by 2003 the site was draining him financially; by instituting a subscription fee of R427.50 a year and prices for customer service reports based on a sliding scale, the site was seen to be going from strength to strength.
We need to ask ourselves the question – is Yowzit going to be the next competitor to Hellopeter or not? This is a difficult question to answer and perhaps will have varying points of view as both will have their fans and both will have their critics, and as with everything in life there will be individuals that will not feel partial to either.
Today Hellopeter is a giant with 18 million hits a month.
There are great things in store for Yowzit, too, as this is a brilliant platform for individuals to air their views – whether you like something or dislike something, an unbiased platform where you can either compliment or vent is a brilliant way for other individuals to discover what you do or don’t enjoy anywhere in the world – it might be a spa in India or a restaurant in London, a movie or book you think everyone should enjoy; you can now have your say by making use of the Yowzit site.
Yowzit has a chance of becoming the next competitor to Hello Peter – after all Facebook has some really stiff competition too.
