Keep in mind, too, that the higher your website is ranked for your area, the more RFB (requests for bids) you'll get without even trying. *I've gotten three calls today from companies wanting bids. *All three said they found us through a Google search.

If you need help with a website or SEO, there are plenty of us out here who do this on the side. *Me being one of those people. *Don't hesitate to email me!

Were these calls from your own website or through a bidding site?

No not at all Rob, This will tell the customer you are willing to work with them and also allows you to get a feel for their budgit so you don't go there with some crazy high bid. And it will tell you if you want to persue bidding maybe if you know where the budgit is then you wont be waisting time bidding something that you now know wouldnt be able to beat and you can just tell them right then they have the best deal and you don't think you can match or beat the price they have. They will apperciate it more. You would know right off if you could beat it or not, by your per acre rate. this will cut down on alot of wasited time on both parties.
