This seems too good to be true. What’s the catch?
There is no catch! Our Pros want to present their products and services to potential customers, so they pay us to connect with you. GoDabo donates a portion of the revenue from every completed consultation to charity.
Do I have to make a purchase or commitment to the Pro after the consultation in order for a donation to be made?
No. The donation is made after the consultation is completed, regardless of outcome.
How long do consultations take?
They vary from Pro to Pro, but typically last from 30 to 60 minutes.
Who needs to be present for the consultation?
At least one decision maker must participate in the consultation.
Will I need to qualify for all consultations requested?
Yes. Because Pros pay GoDabo for quality referrals, each Pro has a list of specific criteria you must meet in order to request a consultation through our site. These are displayed once you choose a Pro with whom you wish to consult. If the Pro believes you do not meet the criteria, they may elect not to schedule a consultation.
How many consultations may I request?
You may request to meet with up to 3 professionals per service category, though we encourage consumers to only meet with Pros offering products or services that they have a genuine interest in.
Can I refer anyone to the GoDabo program?
Yes. We encourage sharing this opportunity with friends, neighbors and family members via social media, email, and word of mouth. Anytime you or your friends need a home improvement professional, choose GoDabo so your favorite charity will receive a donation.
Is there a limit to how much money a charity can earn from the program?
Nope! GoDabo donates 15% of referral fees or a portion of GoDabo Home & Life magazine advertising revenue to the participating charities with no dollar amount limits. The amount donated is determined by the source of the customer referral.
When are the donations paid to the designated charity?
Donations are paid quarterly.
Are the Pros on the GoDabo program reputable, insured, experienced?
GoDabo does its best to qualify each Pro it allows to participate in the program. Unlike our competitors, we limit the number of Pros per industry. We make every effort to pick the best possible companies for each category and require that they be licensed, insured and have a good reputation in their respective industry. Having said that, we encourage consumers to always do their own research on each Pro before making any final decisions.
Are all consultations completed in person with the Pro?
Most consultations are conducted in person with the Pro. However, each Pro may set up its own consultation requirements, which may include in-person, telephone, webinar, etc. The type of consultation required will be clarified in the consultation requirements set by each Pro.
The American Cancer Society is a wonderful organization. However, may I designate another charity to receive the donation?
Yes! We are proud to have The American Cancer Society as our preferred charitable partner, but you are always welcome to designate any other Guidestar registered 501(c)(3) or GoDabo enrolled charity to receive the donation. You can designate a school, church, youth organization, or any other deserving group you wish to support.
