Hi Chris, The first thing I look for when buying leads is the budget. As we have to pay to contact you I need to know that I have a realistic chance of a job I can earn from as I will already have laid out before we even speak. Another factor is a detailed description and a time frame, I bought a job yesterday because it specified January and we have a gap in bookings then. I would say re post, and give as much detail as you can and be honest about how much you are willing to spend. Everyone wants to save money but good tradespeople are in demand and don't need to take jobs that they cannot earn a living wage from. Good luck!

Hi Chris as already mentioned could be few issues budget does play a big part as trader does have to pay for lead or maybe know one wants work. Don't mind me asking but what was the job? You can always view my profile and contact me who knows may be something I can do. Good luck and best regards john

Put request again about job you wish to do and describe how square meter and put information about price ( but do not budget too high ) Put budget for one fifty pound but in description write that budget can be increase . Do not forget that tradesman have to pay for you request and price is depend of your budget. High budget - high price to pay by tradesman . play smart and good luck .

Hi Chris. It could be down to one or more reasons. It could be the description: make sure you provide a good description of the job. It could be budget: make sure you have a reasonable budget, you can find a rough guide on the website. Also it could be that in your area the local trades people are booked up. Often I am booked up for weeks/months ahead. Keep reposting though, as often even when fully booked gaps can appear in a trades persons schedule. Hope this helps and good luck! Richard the decorator.

It could be down to budget, poor description or could even be down to the fact that the tradesmen in your area are just busy, sometimes we get booked up for 3-4 weeks in advance so don't buy any job leads. Keep reposting the job, someone may get a slack period in their schedule, its all about right place right time Neil Priors Home & Garden Services

Make sure your giving as accurate description of the work that you require as possible & try to be realistic with your budget. Those are the common faults that put off tradesmen.
