Running a small business can be stressful, and we understand that. From chasing leads, driving to estimates who aren’t serious, following up with proposals that never call you back, and sometimes even collecting payments can be a challenge. Despite these struggles, you keep chugging along and avoid getting discouraged, because there is no other option, until now.
At Hirescapes, we know how valuable your time is. If you could spend less time trying to get new projects and more time constructing them, you would be able to complete more jobs each season.
When you join Hirescapes, you will be invited to bid on local projects when they become available. Each project will have all the essential project specifications so that you can provide the most accurate estimate without having to go on site first. In addition, Hirescapes provides contractors all the tools to streamline their entire sales process, from submitting final proposals to automatic invoicing and even credit card payment processing.
How it works:
Once your Hirescapes account is created, fill out your profile and upload photos of your past projects. Photos that meet Hirescapes requirements will be added to our inspiration board. You will be notified when a customer likes one of your photos if your qualifications match their project requirements. You will also be notified when there is a local project requesting an estimate, and if you’re interested, you can submit your estimate right through our platform.
Get Qualified Leads
Unlike traditional lead generators, we don't want to waste your time with leads that aren't serious. Instead, you will receive actual project specifications prepared by an industry professional, from highly qualified customers. After you review these projects, you can easily submit bids, directly through our platform.
Submit Your Proposal
Once the homeowner has reviewed your bid and determined they would like to work with you, they will schedule a site visit with you to go over final pricing details. You’ll have 48 hours from the site visit to submit your final proposals to the homeowner. Hirescapes provides an easy-to-use proposal template, that’s simple to edit, add additional projects (additional wall, walkway, etc.) or make changes from the original estimate.
On Hirescapes, your customer can review your final proposal and hire you with just one click. If you submit a proposal but don’t get a response, not to worry. We will automatically follow up with the customer and keep you updated on the status.
We experienced the difficulties of collecting payments from customers first-hand, and understand how inconveniencing it can be, for both the contractor and the homeowner. Whether it’s receiving the deposit to secure a date or collecting the final payment, chasing money can waste a lot of time. Hirescapes simplified this with our automatic invoicing, escrow-like payment process, and pre-set industry standard payment milestones (⅓, ⅓, ⅓).
Every time you complete a project on Hirescapes, your project is given a customer satisfaction score. The more projects you complete, the happier you keep your customers and the more photos of completed projects you upload, the more likely you are to be recommended for other projects.
