A while back I was watching an episode of Modern Family and it in Mitchel gets a voucher for a service that literally does anything for you when you don’t have the time or the inclination to do it yourself. I was literally watching this and thinking, man that is so awesome I wish we had something similar here…. Well, guess what?! We do!
I’d like to introduce you all to a very cool app called Hey Jude which will not only find you whatever you need, but they will get a quote, deliver it and even pay on your behalf! So for example if you were trying to arrange a party where you needed say 200 hotdogs in a blow-up pool (that’s my kind of party) then all you would have to do is log onto the app and start up a conversation with one of the virtual assistants, which is powered by a real person chatting to you. You would then tell them what you are looking for, you can even send photo reference if you want. But say you don’t feel like typing because you’re too busy sipping on a cup of tea or scrolling through your address book to see who you’d like to invite to said hotdog party, then all you have to do is send a voice note containing your requirements and that’s that. It can’t get any easier.
This app can handle any size request from restaurant bookings, to travel arrangements, to ordering food, to finding a specific product, to organising a tradesman, whatever you can think of.
So I downloaded the app and tried it out and I’m not going to lie, Hey Jude is kind of amazing, it’s like having four of you making sure stuff gets done! I found it really useful and easy to use, I even felt a little fancy whilst on it because it kind of feels like having a personal assistant who you don’t have to pay and who doesn’t mind doing everything for you. So now that I know how much 200 hotdogs cost, anyone want to come to my hotdog pool party? It’ll be fun, I promise.
What I’d like to do now is treat one of you to a dream come true with Hey Jude to the value of R5000 in cash that you can spend on absolutely anything you like! A hot air balloon ride, a new TV, a magic potion that will multiply you four times over, you name it and it’s yours.
All you have to do is:
- Leave me a comment here telling me what you would ask Hey Jude to help you find or organise.
- Post an image to your Instagram or Facebook page of what you would like to spend the cash on and make sure you include the following copy: I want to win R5000 with @heyjudeapp by sharing what I’d do with all that cash! #HeyJudeMagic
- Posts to Instagram and Facebook will be rewarded with THIRTY additional entries! Don’t forget to use the tags so we can track your entries.
- A winner will be chosen on the 31st of May 2017. Good luck!
