Pay As You Go – No Subscription
Bark operates on a pay-as-you-go basis without the need to sign up for a subscription, so you can cancel anytime. This flexibility is ideal for professionals whose work may be seasonal or who are looking to fill the gaps in their regular schedule.
The platform has grown rapidly since launching in 2015 and has expanded into 8 countries. Its dedicated Customer Success team is available 24/7 via phone or email to help professionals get set up and manage their accounts.
As of today, Bark has helped over 1 million professionals find new customers and has received more than 15 million customer requests.
Demand for Roofing
Over the past year, the platform has seen a growing demand for construction and trades-related professionals, in particular, the roofing industry. Roofing-related customer requests rose by 85% in the past year alone. This high demand makes Bark the obvious choice for trades and roofing contractors who are looking for a steady stream of new work.
Hear from one professional who decided to give Bark a go during the pandemic as a way to secure new clients and grow his business.
Brandon, owner of Brave Top Construction and Clean Er Up Bin Rentals, has seen his business grow rapidly since being on Bark. “I joined Bark in June 2020. I wanted to challenge myself, and Bark seemed like the perfect platform to grow my second business.”
Since joining Bark, Brandon has gained over 100 new clients and his business has grown significantly: “Within a few months, the business started to grow from strength to strength. My income was £2000 in June 2020, and six months later I’d crossed my personal goal of £100,000 gross income.”
For Brandon, having 24/7 support from a dedicated Customer Success team has been one of Bark’s biggest benefits. “The Customer Success team is like having free employees so why not leverage Bark’s amazing support?! They’re with you all the way, from teaching you how to be successful, to providing tips on how to sell to customers.”
There’s no commission or subscription fee with Bark – simply register for free and pay for the leads you want using a pay-as-you-go credit system. Professionals receive live leads as they come in and can download the Bark app to receive leads on the go.
Credits never expire, so they can be used whenever it suits your business. With no contract, professionals have the flexibility to purchase as many leads as they want, making it the perfect addition to businesses of any size.
Lily, Customer Success Manager at Bark, thinks the reason why professionals are so successful on the platform is in part due to the thorough onboarding they receive when signing up.
“We understand that lead generation isn’t something that everyone is familiar with and we want to ensure our professionals get the best chance of success on the platform. That’s why our expert Customer Success team sets our professionals up for success by helping them with best practices for responding to leads, setting up their profile, and creating a bespoke credit pack based on their business. We find that professionals on the platform have an impressive 1 in 5 conversion rate, and the tailored support they get has a big part to play in that. Our goal is to make the platform as user-friendly and accessible for professionals as possible, so that they can really benefit from Bark and everything it has to offer.”
Bark as a Lifeline for Small Businesses During the Pandemic

It has provided professionals with a platform to connect with customers who need essential work done to their homes.
