Why did we decide to create ineed?
Times are changing... And consumers change their behavior too. What do they usually do when they are in need of any service or product? They search for them in the Internet, they Google.
What do they usually do when after several hours or more it seems like they've found some service or product before they buy it? They Google again to find more details and get more credibility from various sources, people's feedback, recommendations.
Google has called this Zero Moment of Truth. “The Internet has changed how we decide what to buy"
...and it's not exciting for both customer and business owner.
We looked at this as the challenge that we want to help to overcome and created ineed: social marketplace with recommendations from the people you trust. Doing this we understand that it is a way to customer's and seller's paradise.
