    Our Suggestion:

    If a buyer has highlighted their project with a boosted rating they are expecting personalised, extended bids. Make sure you add a substantial amount of information within the bid to give the buyer a better understanding of what you can offer.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1495486218764{padding-top: 60px !important;padding-right: 10% !important;padding-bottom: 100px !important;padding-left: 10% !important;background-color: #ffffff !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4062″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

    Project Sizes

    Buyers now highlight the scope of their projects giving you an idea of the value of their potential order. The project size helps you to gauge the volume and value of their enquiry to help you qualify the project.

    [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1511370504494{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #f9f9f9 !important;}”]

    Our Suggestion:

    If you can see it’s a fairly large project then we recommend adding more information to your bid within the notes section to show you are a serious supplier looking to be chosen for their enquiry. Buyer’s with large projects are looking to partner with professional suppliers and the better the company background and information on your quality products and services you offer the better chance you have at winning the customer.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4063″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

    Project Stage

    Buyers list what stage their project is in:

    This now gives you a better idea of how close the buyer is from ordering.

    [/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”15px”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1511370522424{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;background-color: #f9f9f9 !important;}”]

    Our Suggestion:

    If the project is in early stages then the buyer is just enquiring to see which suppliers can deal with their enquiry.

    If the project is in advances stages this highlights that the buyer has already got quotes from other places and is looking for competitive quotes to finalise their options.

    Final stage shows the buyer is very close to ordering and just needs to finalise the key details and would be ready to choose their supplier soon.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1511386447726{padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1489081383915{padding-top: 30px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”YOU’RE NOW READY” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center|color:%23777978″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1511280951437{padding-top: 10px !important;}”]
