Over the last few months we’ve made some changes to ensure you’re receiving targeted leads for the scale and types of jobs of you wish to chase on Builderscrack.

When registering you’ll be offered a wide range of trades to select from. Not only can you select general trade groups (such as builders), you can also select specific sub categories of trades within these groups.

You can now select a price range for jobs that you’re interested in chasing. For example, if you’re a tradie specialising in high value plumbing jobs, once your settings are complete, you won’t be sent job leads homeowners wanting their washers changed.

You can also specify the locations you’re available to chase jobs in.   These changes will increase the quality of job leads you’ll be receiving.

It’s important to invest time selecting the best range of trades you can provide homeowners, and to check back often to revise your trade options. This means you’ll get more relevant job leads and be better positioned to expand your business.

We’ve made these changes to improve the quality and detail of job leads for tradies, and to connect the best tradespeople for the job with homeowners.

If you think there’s trade categories that could be added or improved please contact us with your suggestions.
