When you’re new to Builderscrack, it can be daunting to know how you can win a job ahead of other tradespeople with an established history of reviews.
There are four key things you can do to help you secure your first few jobs and begin building your reviews and a healthy traderank.
- Upload a professional profile photo (no selfies).
- Provide a thorough profile description – explain your experience in the trade, that you quote efficiently and use this to demonstrate how well you communicate.
- Personalise messaging when you chase a job – this is an opportunity to introduce yourself, outline that you’re new to builderscrack.co.nz but not new to your trade. Address their job directly and how you’d love the opportunity to quote.
- Chase small jobs and jobs others might not want – this will be the foundation for success. You can build up excellent reviews doing these jobs, then as you gain reviews your traderank will increase and you can pitch for higher value work.
