Amazon tries to dominate every promising tech market, so I can't say I'm surprised that they've decided to get into the home services market. It looks beautiful, which does surprise me.
Help the little guys compete :) https://www.producthunt.com/post...
Interesting move by Amazon to begin competing with Handy, Homejoy and many other on demand services. Amazon Home Services will provide on-demand service for all sorts of home chores including routine cleaning, TV installation, painting, plumbing, and assembly.
Team working on this is impressive. They still have an opportunity to learn how selling services and managing service providers is different than selling a SKU. But building a hyperlocal marketplace is tough. And of all the big players in tech that have tried to get traction, Amazon is not a team I would bet against. TakeLessons is excited to be teaming up with Amazon for certain categories in their launch markets.
I'm growing disillusioned with Amazon after seeing stuff like: http://www.theverge.com/2015/3/2... Granted we still run on AWS :-)
