No I was referring to a google search for painters in your area. If I search my company name the buildzoom link shows up on the first page.

Buildzoom comes up pretty good for me also. Albeit it is the only one I have thus far. Well, YP and Manta I think..... So many chores to do.

We have had limited success with the site. However, itshould probably be used as a part of your marketing piece along with print advertising, SEO, BBB, Angie's List, etc. You can't depend on one site for all of your marketing needs, but if it helps at all it's worth your time.

Hey guys, just to disclose right off the bat, I'm one of the founders of BuildZoom. My name is Jiyan and I found this forum while searching for our company name in Google.

I've learned a lot from reading this forum and would love the opportunity to participate, answer any questions you guys might have and also get more feedback about how we can improve the site, with your permission.

Would you guys be open to me participating in this thread?

I'm not a deciding factor in your request but I would indeed appreciate any offering you could provide.

For the record, my experience so far in working with various directories for my company, I have found BuildZoom to be the easiest to work with. So, for what it's worth.

Dear John, thanks so much for the feedback. Creating a simple and friendly user experience is something that we are really committed to. We want to make it as simple as possible for contractors to share work samples, communicate their business and provide prospects with other key pieces of information (e.g. license status in states where it is needed). We figure, the more information you guys can share about your business, the better experience we'll be able to provide to your customer prospects.

I did take a look at your profile and think it's very solid. The projects in your portfolio have good titles with regional identifiers that will help them perform well in organic search. I only have a few recommendations:

1. If you are not concerned about privacy issues, you may want to add pictures and names of key employees in the company. We've found that showing pictures of employees helps bring a human element to the business that potential consumers really like.

2. You may want to get some of your customers to "Like" the profile on Facebook. We actually track those likes and factor them into the algorithm that determines your ranking on the site.

3. You may want to consider putting a badge on your new site that links back to your corresponding BuildZoom profile. The link will help boost your BuildZoom profile in organic search results for queries of your company name and also will help the long-term positioning of your projects.

I appreciate that feedback.

This weekend is bringing a storm to the area and it is an excuse to shut operations down for a few days. As a result I will be able to dedicate some time just to exactly what you were saying. I agree, as do a few successful people here, with exactly what you are saying.

Again, the user friendliness of BZ has made for me to prefer using my listing with your directory as a reference point above all others thus far. Ultimately the website and FB will override this, although I am very pleased with the things I can do on BZ.

Nice avatar btw.

Hey Sully, Chris is one of our internal consultants. We make it a goal to call everyone who signs-up to provide them with a general overview of our service, address any questions they might have and let them know about our premium subscriptions. That is more or less where the interaction ends unless the new user wants to continue the interaction.

Good to hear. Glad you found you're way to these boards through my post too. So far I like the layout and usability of your site. If it brings me more jobs I'll be really happy!
