Question

I want to do post construction cleaning jobs. Is there any web site where you can get in touch with home builders to see if I can do their work?


Answer

www.yellowpages.com or the local business pages of the phone directory should have what you are looking for. Check under Building Contractors. However, donít expect a high percentage of returns from an e-mail inquiry. One of the best ways is personal contact. It helps to wear a company uniform and pass out professional brochures and business cards in person. Ask for a chance to visit with project superintendents, to see if you could be added to their bid list. From that point on, it is a matter of salesmanship.
