  1. Yes, I’d like to learn more. I’m good at social media and website design (and hosting), but would I call myself the best in Cape Coral, probably not. There are some excellent ones down here (in SW Florida). I am though, one of the best marketing professionals (over 20 years of small business marketing consulting experience) and printing professionals (nearly 20 years as a professional print broker, always getting the highest quality printing at the cheapest pricing around).

    I would be more than willing to add whatever links, reviews and links to bark if it would bring me more qualified customers and I am ALWAYS timely! Let me know.

I look forward to being considered for this award Bark team – I answer every reply within 1 minute of seeing it during business hours, ( by the way, I think my average response time goes down if I reply in the am to an overnight bark which isn’t fair), I have solid reviews and I offer a great service at a fair price.

  8. Excellent, I have been referring my out of house customers from Harley street to Bark. They have used bark for other services they have required.

    It’s been a great platform as an icebreaker introducing myself and others.

  10. We at A-Tech Home improvements are only a small firm but we offer the best quality and the best prices of all styles of fencing work in the West Midlands…
    and I would like to see if we can win the Certificate of Excellence Award..

  11. Thank you for this email I have been awarded previously (Best Three Dog Walker in Solihull & LUX Magazine – Best Dog Walker in Solihull) in the last 12 months! So my record speaks for itself. Your quoted response time of my three days is incorrect. When you have allowed a free reply everyone I have replied to has ignored my response this is less than 24 hours from when you advised me of a new client! I do not respond to any that require credits as I’m not that difficult to find on the internet if people are genuine clients! I would be interested to hear your response.

    1. Hi – interesting to read! The best people to speak with here are the support team, as they can help with your questions, you can reach out to them direct via email to

  12. Do all of my google reviews count and if so, I have mentioned this before, why are they not all showing under my profile?

    1. Hi Steve – they absolutely will do. We bulk update all google reviews, so they aren’t done automatically. This is a free aspect of our service and we will be updating everyones google reviews in the near future. Thanks – The Bark Team

  13. Having been a client with for nearly 2 years, now I feel that I have all the qualifications for The Certificate of Excellence. Since early 2017, the Barks I have received, and the way in which I handle them has revolutionised my operation. As a true believer in the Law of Averages, as long as I keep focused on that the results are alwaysthe same. A great SUCCESS! Regards Mel. Midas Video Production. 9th November 2019

    1. Hi Rob! Always a pleasure hearing from you – we’re delighted to hear of your ongoing success. It looks like you may be on track to get the certificate already, but we want to make sure you’re 100% there. If you drop us an email to we can look into what’s missing, if anything, to ensure you gain the certificate. – The Bark Team

  15. I have a very good understanding with all my customers to the point they ask for advice on other services, I also talk to and send them other services we can offer, The latest service with the winter weather upon us is Fogging, it is recommended in schools, Hospitals, etc, any where the general public gather – even doctors surgeries, public transport, It treats the cold and spreadable infections which cause staff to have time off work ( a big cost to any company), children’s absence from school. We also are offering a 1 x per year service of supply and install Christmas trees for receptions, offices – anywhere you want.

  16. We have the designers that can give you the type of wedding you would be proud of.Best is in the eyes of other people and that can differ from person to person.The bride is the main one we make every effort to please.

  17. Just want to comment again that I think a minor change in your good business model would really work well for vendors/service providers, and would go a long way to attract new vendors to your site. I truly feel that charging those interested in services, even just a tiny amount, so they are more invested and take their requests seriously, would prevent pranksters and others just having a desperate moment in the middle of the night. My experience has been borne out by others I have asked. People submit requests, we respond, send them messages and leave voice mail and they do not reply. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it happens enough. Why not make them pay even a dollar or two to put in a request? I think it would serve you and your vendors

    1. Hi, an interesting suggestion. We have passed this onto the development team here at Bark for them to take into consideration. We will of course keep you up to date with any future developments and improvements to the service that you may be interested in. For now, if you have any further questions or issues, we can speak direct via email on
