SEND REQUEST FOR BUSINESS
Please note: There is no fees included in the request feature, the only fee involved in our site is the monthly or yearly subscription. We take no money for work found on this site as we are not involved in the payment between the registered businesses and site visitors.
The send request feature allows site visitors who are in need of a job doing, to be able to send a direct request to the trades or businesses they need in the location they need it, with a detailed description about the job they need doing. They will also select tags associated with that type of work, and if you have them tags on your profile, and its in an area you are in, or willing to travel to you will be able to view the request and instantly message the request sender through the site and discuss the job. On your business profile menu you will have a tab that reads ‘View requests’. When you receive a request there will be a ‘(1)‘ along side the view request tab, or however many you have received will be highlighted in brackets. From here you can view the request, see the location of the request, the request description and the time of the request. If its a job you are interested in you can message the sender directly through the site. Once the sender has replied you will see another ‘(1)‘ along side the view request tab as you would if you received a request, just click on the arrow alongside and you will see the messages tab just below, this is your message area. As stated earlier this is all involved in the monthly subscription so you will not be charged for showing interest, replying or accepting these requests
SEND REQUEST FOR VISITORS
The send a request feature allows you to send a direct, in detail request to the trades you need. Simply click the send request tab, go into detail about what it is you would like doing, select tags associated with that kind of work, select the town, city or postcode you are in or require the work and hit send. This will then notify all the registered businesses with those tags in that area that there is someone seeking their expertise, they can then view the request you have sent, and if they’re interested in the job they can respond directly through our site. You can select multiple tags in one request, for example, if you needed a complete house renovation you could go into detail about your renovation plans and then select ‘Builder’, ‘Plumber’, ‘Plasterer’. So then all of those with them tags, receive that request. When you receive a reply you will see a ‘(1)‘ or however many replies you have along side the ‘Send Request’ tab, just click on the arrow alongside and you will see a messages tab, this is your message area. You can also check the requests you have sent by clicking on the ‘View sent requests’ tab, just incase you wanted to check you have sent out the request you wanted to
WHAT ARE TAGS?
Tags are a searchable and identifiable add on to your profile. They show what kind of work you do and what your trade/business is. For example, if a builder was also able to clean windows, they could select the ‘Builder’ and ‘Window cleaner’ tag. They will then show up on both of those searches and will receive the requests for both Builders and window cleaners. You can also select tags so that potential customers know what kind of work you do right away. Another example could be a cake maker, they would already have ‘Cake maker’ tag, but they may also add the ‘Wedding cake’ tag, this will then show site visitors that they specialize in wedding cakes without having to ask and will show up on the results.
