Serviceseeking.com.au is a well known Australian site that hooks them up with tradespeople from their local area. Say they need an electrician, it will connect them up with three getting them three quotes.
The clone site must have all the features of serviceseeking.com.au and be fully responsive, loading quickly on desktops and mobiles. It must be user friendly and easy to use on all devices.
While we need value for money we also need competence. Our designer/developer must be good! Note to my mind value for money doesn't necessarily mean cheap or the cheapest- a bid can be better value than another bid and be more expensive simply because it is more inclusive or the designer is more experienced.
Of course, price is a factor but I am not one of those idiots that just look for the cheapest price and live to regret it later. Sure be as cheap as you can in your bid but don't cut corners just to bring in a cheap bid. Quality is cheaper in the long run!
