Wondering how to find the best contractors for your project? Here are 5 tips to keep in mind when searching and discovering!
Tip 1: Prioritize what your project needs
Choose 1-2 skills that your project needs to be successful and filter your search based on those priorities. Filter your search on the People page by clicking "view all" under services, and selecting and searching for services that are necessary for your project.
Now your search will only show you contractors that have included those skills in their profile!
Tip 2: Browse and save profiles for later
While on the People page, click the bookmark of all contractors that you are interested in working with.
Now, you can easily go through your Contractors and reach out to the ones that you feel best suit your projects.
Tip 3: Never miss an opportunity
If you see someone you are really interested in working with, but who's availability is set to "available soon," still reach out! It is possible that they will be available within a few weeks, or they can hop on a project with you in the future.
Tip 4: Get to know your potential contractors
When inviting a contractor to your project, you have the opportunity to send them a message with that invite. Send over a link to your schedule with the invite and plan a quick, no pressure chat with your potential collaborator so you can get to know them, and they can learn a little more about you and your project before diving in.
You also have access to contractors' social media if they choose to include it in their profile. Send them a direct message and let them know you invited them to a project on Wethos, and learn more about them through their Instagram or LinkedIn!
Tip 5: Utilize preferences and availability
Wethos gives users the opportunities to not only set their availability for work, but tag their industries and interests. This allows you to get to know contractors and their past experiences quickly and easily, while it also allows you the opportunity to present them with a job that pertains to their interests.
