Juno Beach, Florida (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
BidABuilder.com, the nation's fastest-growing network of third-party certified Home Improvement Contractors, has introduced its revolutionary professional interface to three new markets in Texas: Dallas, Houston and Austin.
The expansion is the latest wave of development stemming from the company’s major growth strategy that includes expansion into new markets and increasing BidABuilder.com’s customer base in established markets such as San Francisco, Richmond, Va.; Miami, West Palm Beach, Fla.; Tampa, Fla.; Orlando, Fla.; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Atlanta.
“This year represents tremendous growth and investment for the BidABuilder.com home improvement network, which stands out by virtue of its accessibility, affordability and the fact that each of our contractors must pass a strict screening process.” explains Dennis Cunningham, CEO and founder of BidABuilder.com as well as AutoEquityMarket.com, MatchADoctor.com and Equity Funding Mortgage.
Since its inception in March 2008, more than $300 million in projects have been posted to BidABuilder.com, providing consumers with a revolutionary platform to securely post their job specs using an online system. BidABuilder.com boasts an exceptional project completion rate of about 67 percent, well above that of its competitors, notes Cunningham. “Competitors are reporting just a fraction of that percentage.”
BidABuilder.com's home improvement network is made up of more than 20,000 contractors who must meet minimum state requirements and submit to an instant multi-state criminal background check.
Bidabuilder.com's competitors, do not meet Bidabuilder.com's vetting standards, may require homeowners to pay a fee and rely heavily on consumer-generated content. BidABuilder.com’s unique network allows homeowners to post projects ranging from basic maintenance to complete renovations ─ all at no cost.
“We see ourselves as a trusted ally ─ an ultimate concierge,” adds Cunningham. “Our No. 1 concern has always been to provide the consumer with every possible protection,” notes Cunningham. “We know everyone is concerned about spending money in today’s economy, so we want every homeowner to get the best possible work from the most qualified home improvement contractor for the best price.”
Consumers can log onto BidABuilder.com, check for bids, review contractor profiles, availability, pricing and other influencing factors. BidABuilder.com provides a variety of ways to sort, select and choose a contractor based on price, years in business, customer ratings and proximity to the job. They can also view company profiles and a gallery of completed projects.
“From the start, BidABuilder.com has been an instant hit with consumers and contractors,” reports Cunningham. “The State of Florida was our test bed and was warmly received with TV news coverage and an outpouring of support from both homeowners and contractors alike.”
Celebrity media campaigns, including CNN anchor Lou Dobbs and TV/radio personality Glenn Beck, have served as an integral part of the company's home improvement brand-building efforts.
In its new Texas-based markets, BidABuilder.com is now running radio advertising campaigns through local Clear Channel stations to best target potential customers and continue to roll out the BidABuilder.com brand.
“We are committed to implementing extensive media campaigns across multiple platforms, including billboard, radio, TV, print and web advertising and marketing,” explains Cunningham. “This allows reputable contractors of any size to get the most of BidABuilder.com's investment and brand development strategies.”
Earlier this year, BidABuilder.com announced its inclusion in the EB-5 Program administered by the United States Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS). Palm Beach Investment and Finance, LLC (PBIF), operator of the USCIS-approved Palm Beach Regional Center, selected BidABuilder.com to participate in the EB-5 Program aimed at spurring economic revitalization and promoting job creation.
Since its launch, the success of BidABuilder.com has snowballed, further driving demand and making it a household name in a category all its own.
