BidOnMyJob Launches, Aims to Compete with ServiceMagic and Angie's List

January 21, 2013
JOHNSTON, Iowa — BidOnMyJob LLC, a small startup company has launched, aiming to compete with ServiceMagic and Angie’s List. BidOnMyJob.com allows anyone needing work done to post a job that will automatically notify industry professionals via e-mail and SMS/text messaging.

BidOnMyJob.com allows consumers and businesses to post service industry related jobs. These jobs can be posted immediately, on a future date, or on a reoccurring basis. Once the job is live, contractors get notified via SMS/text message and have the ability to review the details of the job and provide a bid. Once the bidding process has closed, the job poster can view the details of each quote, consumer reviews for the business providing the quote, and any licensing documentation the bidder provided with the quote.

Another feature BidOnMyJob.com uses is social media integration. Every job posted on BidOnMyJob.com has a public website that can be shared by the poster on Facebook, Twitter, and Google +.

While the business is just starting, the owners have high hopes for 2013, looking to get 2,000 new jobs posted and over 500 contractors active. The company is focusing on Des Moines, Iowa, and the surrounding area for now, but anticipates that the viral nature of the platform will help it expand quickly.
