Contractors - Your New Business Profile Update!

Many of our contractors perform work in multiple categories. Some specialize in only one or two. We have an exciting new update that allows you to create customized profiles for each categories you've signed up for.

These specialized profiles give you the chance to create online promotional tools to better explain the work you do. The more that potential clients know about you and your services, the more likely they are to hire you.

Log in to your account, click on "My Business", and you'll see the new options.

You'll see a list of all your profiles for each category you've selected. Each one will say, "Add" next to them. Click on "Add" so you can first summarize your business description. Once you've completed this, you can next provide your license, bond, and insurance information -- for that specific category! For example, if you're an electrician and a general contractor, you may have two different licenses. Or your state may only require a license for one category. You can now customize each profile with awards, associations, and specific business descriptions for each service provided. The "We Do It All!" statements never inspire confidence.

Don't worry if you've already entered a business description. There will be a link to your old profile so you can copy and paste that to your new, individual profiles. The link will disappear after a short time, so don't delay!

It is very important to fill out profiles for all your categories. We will be showing this information in your contractor Directory listing as well as the emails sent out to project owners. We will also be ranking your company based on how complete your profiles are. If you've selected too many categories when you originally signed up, this is a great time to delete those excessive categories.
