When I went to Blissdom back in February, I met a few people from a new company called Time Dog. After the conference, they sent me an email and wanted to Skype. So of course, I did what I always do when a company contacts me….I went to their site and started digging around.
The concept of Time Dog intrigued me as they claim to do everything on the to-do list except watch the kids and wash the laundry (but damn, if they did these things I would be in serious love).
The requests I’ve sent to them?
The very first (and extremely important) was to know who the fan favorite was for Top Chef Texas.
I had them find me the best price on Monin Lavender Syrup for this Lavender Sunrise Cocktail that I recreated after drinking many at Blissdom.
They found all sorts of homeschooling resources for me as well as afterschool type programs for Hayley to try out.
I’ve also had them research bathtubs as we are remodeling one of our bathrooms, find me camping spots in NorCal for our trailer by the ocean, chicken sandwich recipes, and bartending school (can you believe there are no bartending schools in Reno, WTF?)
A few times I thought that they hadn’t completed my request but it turned out that their reply was in my spam folder (so if you use them, make sure you check your spam).
After about 4 months I can say I’m pleased with Time Dog and their virtual assistance. They listen to me way better than my dumb dogs.
You can email, live chat, or call them with your service requests. Personally, I’ve only tried the email option as I’m not a fan of talking on the phone and live chat doesn’t work for me since my time on the computer is severely limited lately (hence the lack of blogging).
My only wish for Time Dog (which I told them during our Skype chat) is for an iPhone app because it would be so much easier for me to use their services. (Spoken like a true iPhone addict - hmm…I wonder if they can find someone to make me the iPhone app I want).
So, now I ask you…what burning request would you ask Time Dog to do first for you?
Note: I was not compensated for this post but I did receive a lifetime membership to Time Dog’s services. All opinions and service request ideas are my own.
