Driving this WINTER is a NO NO this season!

Our dedicated team pushed up our 2.0 Version for BidMyVid® and we could not be more excited to tell you about it! It is 12:20am on October 27th 2021 and our TEAM IS UP and burning the mid-night oil! Our development team is making necessary connections to ensure a smooth transition for the latest and greatest in TIME-SAVING tools for TOOL-BASED businesses!

Here’s what’s NEW:

  1. UI UPGRADE: Can we just say…. LOOKS do COUNT! Ok, ok, so our BETA and 1.0 versions were very “Honda Civic” and proved the technology worked and had a demand. So the biggest visual change is the VISUAL INTERFACES for our 2.0 rollout! Can I just say, it is B-E-A-UTIFUL! The UI updates complement the sleek and fast response to our simple business tool.
  2. NOTIFICATIONS: We know, notifications are a MUST! But in our BETA and 1.0 we really worked on the VIDEO scalability and ability to upload in length and convert between iOS and Android platforms of many versions. Once we got the biggest kink worked out on the BEST FEATURE EVER, we moved to other standard features that our users have been asking for!
  3. BUG FIXES: As always, there are BUGS in technology. It is NEVER BROKEN, but instead programmed to do what we want. So, now that leave me with questions. What do you want? As service businesses and professionals, having a dedicated team ready and able to build your dreams desire when it comes to support tools for tool-based businesses, our growing list of features will be determined by the needs shared. That is how we will go from here as we move towards what the community needs as a whole.

No is NOT the answer!

Building a service business that is high demand can leave Contractors jammed.

Finding ways to say YES is!

“I don’t turn down work if I can manage it; there is just so much of it, it’s hard to get to.”

John Phillips, Owner – Beaver Heating and Cooling LLC.

Finding the pain points in our current service marketplace is not hard. Its finding contractors that have availability to come out that seems to be the challenge. Trying to find a contractor in a sea of digital lead platforms WILL leave you feeling less than supported and disconnected from service providers.

It is a grueling path to ride; to bare the unforgiving pavement of never-ending hours on the road to assess projects. The wear and tear on the fleet and on the service professional is breaking the levy. But what if there were a better way to VALUE everyone’s time involved?

DAM the work and build the reservoir!

No more DAMN leads that cause service professionals to run ragged trying to service everyone in curiosity, let alone in necessity. Now there is a way to save time and use it in a resourceful way. It’s about time to DAM the needs and help in a way that truly addresses concerns and offers a chance to foster the building of trust. Dam the opportunities in a way they have a chance to be addressed. Build the reservoir in a way to mange the flow rather than be overrun by it.

The breakdown of trust when calling for help is something that has been degrading for decades. The volume has not slowed but the trust breakdown has made it challenging to effectively complete service needs without the anxiety caused by the lack of trust. As digitization has happened and the continuation of pattern to have gratification instantly, it has left service professionals on the highway of endless margin loss and time loss. Twitching like road kill, the time to fix this challenge has come

Saving Service Sanity by giving time back!

Built for service business by service professionals, BidMyVid aims to give time back when it comes to getting repairs done in one take! Features that allow a deeper understanding as to who we are working with is the start to fostering the rebuilding of trust within the service marketplace.

The true value comes in the support and care to help service businesses save time when it comes to running a smooth operation.

    Drive Where?

    The Fix It Queen Academy™

    Offering time and insight comes at a cost as the time spent driving is often a hindsight shrinkage margin unaccounted for.

    SAVE TIME and THE BOTTOM LINE!

    BidMyVid doesn’t want you to be a Frustrated Driver off to give another estimate.

    DRIVING LESS, MAKES MORE!

    As a former contractor as well as being blue-collar born, I know that driving is part of the territory. But it doesn’t ALWAYS have to be! Countless hours offering insight, on-site that compounds with the time spent driving adds up in a world of instant gratification with unrealistic time and budget expectations. Deploying BidMyVid® in your service business will allow a knowing in advance if the project is a fit for both parties and it has never been more important.

    Traveling miles and hours to assess projects can be costly. Clients dread the “ESTIMATE FEE” and Service Professionals can find themselves driving to no avail as projects are not a fit for the schedule or the available resource of each Service Professional.

    The landscape of service industry has changed in many ways. No longer are we needing ways to “BUY LEADS” and be RIPPED OFF from large Marketing Platforms because the way of SHARING BUSINESS is what has always prevailed. Admittingly it has taken time for our team to weave the right technology layers together to catch up to how we operate at a fundamental core as a service industry with ETHICS, so now BidMyVid® exists, it allows the next evolution of the dreadful “LEAD” to the now “Opportunity” shared.

    Contracting professionals have referred each other for eons as our dedicated and loyal clients ask for more and more help. We are glad to provide a solution that could lead to an outcome that is favorable for both parties; that in itself is fulfilling.

    How does driving less and sharing business equal a better bottom line?

    The digitization of services marketplace has created a toxic environment for service professionals. It is absurd to think that the very people that are asking for help from Service Professionals do not know that the current business models driving the marketplace are harmful and abusive to say the least.

    Well, that is now a past statement of fact that no long is! As the Generation 5 and evolution comes to be, it is simple to stay connected in ways that SAVE TIME and reduce driving for ballpark estimate opportunities. BidMyVid® solves all the challenges of clients sending every and any which way, various methods to get in touch with us. Filters stand in the way as “Directories” or home advising sites that offer a redirection away from how they may not be helping those that are here to help others.

    It was natural for the next step in my journey evolving as The Fix It Queen™, to move to circle the wagons around contractors, my hearts center. For having such a deep respect for true labor, skilled and brilliant labor; seeing my grandfather, father, uncles, aunts, business partners and myself work and toil in our skilled-trades profession, it bothered me to see the challenges we faced as digitation occurred and online search engines ranked great marketers over GREATE SERVICE. As service professionals and blue-collar community, our industries got left behind, UNTIL NOW!

    Platforms are the NOW! Search engine are secondary. We hold planforms that keep us connected in many ways over the notorious search options. With the GREAT SOCIAL MEDIA BLACKOUT, we clearly saw that platforms are a connected space. The benefit to us is APPS leveled the playing field. We, as the contracting community can now have our OWN ENVIRONMENT! There are gaming platforms, there are social platforms and there are UTILITY platforms!

    This is where the solutionist of the world CAN truly live. Not survive from the damages of oversold leads and high prices of customer contacts where there is no TRUE CONTACT made. The opportunity to THRIVE is here! The simple function and utility that serves a purpose to improve the quality of life exists. With social media crashes showing us that running a service business on a social platform can leave us all in a blackout and the continued rise in marketing costs to feebly rank against large marketing platforms, it is crucial to implement platforms and APP soluti8ons that are truly built to serve.

    Marketing costs and other shrinkage margins seen and unforeseen plague small businesses. The challenges for contractors are even more tremulous when navigating construction phases or budget designations with margins unmanaged and unforeseen. Leveraging complete projects and having challenges outside our efforts and control create havoc in sustainability. This is a small pinhole view of other degrees we face in the blue-collar world.

    This is WHY. It’s not about anything but TIME.

    Our team efforts to solve the BIGGEST challenge first; how to integrate the highest touch medium, video, in a way that truly saves time. The digital tool missing from every Contractors tool belt and now the only tool they will ever need to save time from driving aimlessly to no avail. Chasing LEADS to recapture the losses from oversold and recoupable leads as well as the shrinkage from a being offered a “CREDIT” is now a thing of the past.

    Built by Contractors for Contractors in a way that truly saves time and shares business how we do in real exchanges, is now a digital experience. Download BidMyVid® now to try it free for 7 days. Allow our team an opportunity to give your time back so that you can take more opportunities. Opportunities are yours to take, they can be in the form of new jobs, a moment to work on your business.

Now is the time to save time from driving and use that time to learn more way to operate a business more effectively.
