ONLINE SME MARKETPLACE LAUNCHES Wednesday 27 May 2015 PDF Print Bidvine to offer more than 180 services to create one of the first total marketplaces of local, London service professionals A new online service focused on London’s service professionals - from photographers, plumbers, language tutors, musicians and personal trainers - is set to launch in mid-June. Bidvine will provide professionals with relevant and qualified business leads from people looking for jobs to be done. Bidvine (www.bidvine.com) is a new online platform currently being trialled in London. To date, almost 2000 London-based professionals have signed up and fulfilled hundreds of job requests in the capital since the trial began two months ago. In June, Bidvine will carry out a full consumer launch in London, offering more than 180 services, covering categories including personal trainers, tradespeople, tutors, photographers and caterers. Bidvine is an online platform that connects people looking for projects to be done with professionals who have the skills, qualifications and availability to provide the required services. From the professional’s perspective, Bidvine’s online process is more efficient and cost effective than traditional ways of finding and quoting for work. From the consumer’s perspective, Bidvine is a free, fast and efficient way to find and hire the best person for the job. Bidvine hopes to remove all the legwork of finding a provider that is interested, qualified and available to carry out consumers’ projects. How it works. Upon registration, professionals specify what services they offer and where they offer them. Bidvine then sends detailed customer requests that match the professional’s location and service offering. Professionals can then view these requests and quote on the projects they are interested in. Professionals only see those jobs that are relevant to them, no more wasting time on jobs that are unsuitable or outside of their coverage area. Bidvine only allows a maximum of five quotes per project – this provides enough selection for the customer, while remaining competitive for the professional. It is free for professionals to view requests and only pay a fee when they decide to send a quote – this gives professionals complete control over their marketing spend. Bidvine does not charge any type of registration or monthly subscription fee. Professionals on Bidvine are being introduced to new customers at a fraction of the cost of traditional sales and marketing efforts. Professionals can also save time by cutting out site visits and introductory meetings because they receive detailed requests that include sufficient and relevant information to provide an accurate quote. Bidvine only makes the initial introduction; once the customer chooses a professional, a direct relationship between the customer and professional begins. Sohrab Jahanbani, Bidvine’s founder and CEO, said: “We are setting out to create a unique and all-encompassing marketplace which will bring greater opportunities for service professionals in the UK.” “We saw numerous inefficiencies in the traditional process of finding and quoting for new work, and sought to change an out-dated process. Bidvine will be the most efficient way for professionals not only to find new work but also to quote for jobs – time should be focused on billable hours, rather than searching for your next job.” Juan Rezzuto, Director of the West Kensington Music Team and Bidvine user says, “Bidvine is indeed the most efficient advertisement solution any service provider can find over the internet. It has certainly allowed us to get directly in touch with far more customers than ever before boosting our client base significantly, regularly and reliably.” Professionals can learn more by visiting www.bidvine.com/providers/how-it-works ENDS Press contacts: Sean Williams or Joshua Van Raalte Brazil +44 (0)20 7785 7383 email@example.com About Bidvine Bidvine’s mission is to enrich lives through fulfilling outcomes that improve relationships, make us smarter, and ultimately increase the ability to spend time on meaningful things.
