Subcontractor Tips: Keep Jobs Lined Up with PlanHub

When you’re a construction subcontractor, you often work on a contractual basis, and when that is your bread and butter, it’s important to make sure you’re always on the lookout for your next project.

A Subcontractor’s Job Is Never Done

As a subcontractor and small business owner, your work never ends. After each project ends, another needs to begin in order to maintain your cash flow. That means placing bids, working on projects, and staying organized throughout the entire process to ensure a successful finished job and positive reviews from clients and general contractors.
What’s more, experts predict that the growth in the construction industry will be slower than expected, meaning an increase in competition for the jobs available. Thus, you’ll need to be at the front of the line when it comes to booking jobs.
If you’ve been a subcontractor for any length of time, then your work history is going to carry some of that load for you. The more satisfied clients you have, the more recommendations will be made, and the more clients and general contractors will seek you out. However, you can’t completely depend on work showing up on your doorstep.

Keep Jobs Lined Up

Fortunately, in today’s digital age, there are tools like PlanHub that can help you keep projects lined up.
