User Rating vs. Personal Recommendations

What's the difference between user star ratings and personal recommendations? Which one is more important?

There is a significant difference that is important to understand.


The star rating is a simple rating system (just like on any other online job marketplace). It uses an average of all star ratings provided.


Personal recommendations are the features that really set Mavuus apart from any other platform. These recommendations come from real people—your peers. The person posting is equally invested in the vendor doing well because it reflects on them. Another huge upside of personal recommendations is the expanded network. The more recommendations you have, the bigger the network of potential opportunities. Hence, the Premium Membership is highly recommended for service providers with 3+ personal recommendations.
