Wilmington, Deleware (PressExposure) April 19, 2008 -- A new service unveiled has contractors around the nation jumping aboard the social networking craze.
The new service, http://www.Contractor.us, has put a spin on an old trick. In addition to their listing services they recently expanded into the social networking market. (Fans of their listing service can still find it located at http://www.Contractor.us/browse.html)
The premise of any type of social networking is simple: keep in touch with friends, make new contacts based on your previous friends, and overall expand your internetwork of friends exponentially. While this type of networking has made a craze among younger generations for menial reasons, it serves to provide greater benefit for the working force; contractors included.
Of the most frightening prospects of a construction job remains the very real possibility of being laid off. Without work, hopeful contractors will be able to support themselves or even their family. Much of the problem in getting a new job lies within lack of networking- usually of which requires hiring a job agent. But to avoid the situation altogether, social networking has be refashioned as a way to keep in touch with friends, of who will hear about job openings much sooner than job agents.
In conjunction with social networking, marketing has become a proper way for contractors to both find work and increase their reputation among their community. Good marketing often relies on some type of Internet location where customers can learn more about what a contractor may or may not have to offer. In realizing this, http://www.Contractor.us has given contractors the ability to create blogs. For most contractors, however, this way of reaching out to customers isnât just for personal means- instead, it serves as a phenomenal way to market and bring in sales.
On a lighter note, the social networking aspect of the renowned Contractor.us website still functions much like other social networking websites. This means that finding casual friends or possible relationships over the Contractor.us is both possible and more beneficial to contractors than any other social networking service. Studies show that attraction is largely created off of shared interests- which means building a solid relationship on the subject of contracting makes the Contractor.us service a logical choice.
Signup on the new service is completely free, states the website. Included in the signup is access to forums, polls, videos, events, and classifies that appeal to contractors in general. As it turns out, social networking isnât just for todayâs youth anymore- the working force has brought it back as a whole new way of life.
