Default Job tender sites

Hey guys, I've done a few searches but came up pretty dry (found some nice threads to read later though, thanks faux )

Any of you guys use bidding sites like merx, or bidcentral, etc? If so, which ones did you find to be more beneficial for finding/bidding/getting jobs?

Thanks

No, I was talking about "my" reply might get something going ..... A lot of times nobody will reply if they're aren't any replies yet so you run a chance of nobody ever replying ... Make sense?

I bought membership and have used Merx couple times,
Databid is another one marketing in our area and I used couple times.

We didn't follow through with using them more because
1. We don't know what we are doing with new construction.
2. We don't like new construction, maybe because of #1

Some people may have success using them, not us.

TJ, it's a Canajun/British term. I think a commercial lead service is the US equivalent.
