How It Works
AS A UTILITY
Bildlist is the most convenient way to connect construction projects to the professionals who created them, leveraging past projects to generate future relationships; as well as providing retail information for those businesses catering to the construction industry.
We provide validation
- Consumers want confidence a construction professional does good work and is good to work with. The most convenient way for consumers to choose a construction professional is to seek out referrals, either through work they’ve seen or from friends. Referrals are truly community based.
- Bildlist provides the easiest and most convenient community platform for consumers to easily see who has built in their neighbourhood by address.
- Bildlist was founded by a builder to provide construction professionals a means to ramp up referrals and leverage local business development.
We show the full story
- Consumers are not exposed to all the participants in a construction project. Once a project is complete, the signs come down and any information who did the work along with it. As is often the case, the general contractor and architect are the only construction professional advertised and get all the credit.
- On the online landscape, there are only a select few home-industry related media sites focused solely on the finished product and production value of the interior design, ignoring the majority of trades involved in the construction process.
- Bildlist shows consumers the full story.
- Bildlist covers the entire construction continuum – from foundation to finishing and everything in between.
- Bildlist provides a platform for all construction professionals, builders, contractors and subcontractors to easily showcase their work online.
- Bildlist offers a listing service for all construction related retailers too.
We level the playing field
- Consumers are looking for trust when choosing a construction professional. That’s why referrals are based on what they see and talking to friends/neighbours as to whether a construction professional is good to work with. Local matters. However, this paradigm has yet to be properly reflected online, where businesses can pay for Google ad placements and improved search engine results.
- Bildlist levels the playing field for the benefit of both consumers and construction professionals.
Bildlist lets consumers see what work was done, who did it and
We provide an aggregate map of all professionals’ work portfolios.
- For construction professionals: they can let the work speak for itself without bias.
We maximize mobile
- Market data shows consumers are increasingly spending the majority of their waking hours online, the majority on mobile. Of mobile time, a survey shows most hours are spent on apps. Research also reveals that photo usage and photo searches are growing exponentially (ie Instagram, Pinterest, Houzz). The majority of usage focuses on sites with some element of community. Currently, there is no mobile platform serving the entire construction industry in communities.
- Bildlist provides consumers a photo-driven community platform on mobile to browse finished local projects, generate ideas or kick-start a job.
- Consumers can type in a category and location, check out their local area map, or take neighbourhood walking tour with BildList’s geotracking mobile feature.
- Bildlist is a one-stop aggregator of all construction professionals’ portfolio photos.
- Bildlist gives construction professionals an easy and impactful exposure to the mobile marketplace. Construction professionals can easily create a profile page and upload photos.
LOOKING FOR A CONSTRUCTION PROFESSIONAL?
From foundation straight through to finishing, two questions underpin the home renovation and construction industry when choosing a construction professional
Do they do good work and are they good to work with?
Referrals rule: our industry is truly community driven. People looking to renovate or build seek out their neighbours and friends for recommendations. Some seek assurance by wanting someone who works locally. Others are impressed by a new build on their drive home and want to know who was involved.
Bildlist was developed to be your community map. Bildlist shows the completed and current worksites of all the building professionals in your neighbourhood. Construction professionals provide photos and project descriptions for your review.
So, go ahead: type in a category and location, check out your local area map, or let us take you on a neighbourhood walking tour with our geotracking mobile feature.
