Why do you need new experts to answer homeowners questions? Don’t you have
your own experienced staff?
we do have experienced staff but we can answer only so many question and
we would rather spend our time advertising our members' businesses which
is our first goal. Also, our service would be very limited since we are
not experts in all of home improvement areas. We've opened this option for
all other professionals nationwide, to share their knowledge with
homeowners looking for help. For all experts' voluntary help we offer a
free advertising on our pages (that includes a free business listing under
a chosen category, logo, as well as a business contact information on our
'Ask Our Experts' page). In turn we expect a professional, timely
responses to all posted questions. If you feel comfortable answering
people's questions related to your professional field and would be able to
sacrifice a few minutes once in a while (maybe couple times a month) we
encourage you to post your profile and
become one of our experts.
All experts' answers (and/or overall performance) may be rated by people
I see that
most (if not all) of those who signed up before me have a nice web site and a logo.
What's up with that? I don't have any of that done for my business yet.
at Quality Professional want to present our members in the best possible
way (and this in our opinion includes a visible presentation as well). For
those who never had a web site or logo designed for their businesses for
any reasons, we came up with a simple solutions. To all our members we
offer very discounted design services and have graphic designers on our
stuff ready to help at any time.
Do I really need a logo?
simply want to help you if you never had one designed for your business.
It's easy and inexpensive at Quality Professional. You will be surprised
how much easier it will be to promote your business having a
professionally designed logo. Our designers will make sure that it will
work very well on any sign, business cards, letterheads as well as on
embroidery, T -shirts as well as on all kinds of promotional gadgets (if
you ever decide to order some), and of course on your web site. Well
designed logo should be easy recognizable to all your customers and the
more you use it more potential clients will remember you. Not to mention
that you will be seen as business owner who cares about his/her image. It
simply builds your prestige over the years. If you still don't have one
you should order it ASAP. You will be contacted by one of our designers
within first 6 months of your membership who will remind you about the
significance of having it done. At Quality Professional we care about ours
and yours business image as well as about a look of our web site and your
Do I need to order a logo and/or web site from you or can I order it from
a designer of my choice?
can order it anywhere you wish or design it yourself if you can. We just
want to make the process easier for you. This is why we have everything
in place just in case you need it. We offer high value products at a very
low prices. You will be offered to have a logo designed during your
first 6 months of membership and have at least (the simplest) web site
designed for you during your 1st year of membership.
Are there any other hidden costs or catches to be a member?
None that we know about. We won't sell you anything and we won't share
your information provided to us with anybody except where it may bring you
more business. If you need tools or some building materials, books or
magazines you may simply check our store if there is anything that you may
need. You may also visit our "Designs 4 Contractors" center at any time.
We offer, logos, web sites, graphic ads, flyer designs, T-shirt designs
and even signs and banners for your business).
What are other benefits of becoming a member?
There are quite few to be honest:
If a visitor to our web site posts a job or asks for
an estimate you will have a lead forwarded
immediately to you (thru
email, phone or fax – according to your preferences). The lead will be
forwarded only to 1-3 professionals in your town. The information will not
be used in any other
way, it won't neither be sold to
anybody nor forwarded to anybody else.
There is also no limit how many leads you may receive during your
We display your listing in an easy to find way.
Other similar companies are making their money mostly from selling
individual leads and that's why it's not in their interest to make your
listing easily accessible to all web site visitors, or many times they
don't display their
members listings at all.
We will never accept more than 3 professionals per
trade in town. This should limit your competition (at least they will not
be allowed on our network).
All of our members will have a chance to display
their ads (photos of their projects) with a link to their businesses on
our homepage as well as on all individual state homepages for free
(included in membership). We reserve a right to select "projects
of a week" or "members of a week" out of all material received from our
members. Ads will be changing every week.
If you write and sent to us an article or a "how-to"
tip it may be displayed on our homepage and in our Library, together with
your name and photo (if you wish).
All materials provided to us by you may be presented
in your Newsletter which will be distributed to your local homeowners
once a month. All new members will be included in each Newsletter.
We own other web sites on which all our members will
be listed. We will also inform all our members about new home improvement
related web sites that we will be launching in next months. On all of them
our members' links will be automatically added.
We will be encouraging all visitors to our web site
to hire our members. We will use our Rewarding System and send them gift
cards and weekly cash prizes as a "Thank You" for hiring you. This should
give our service a lot of word of mouth marketing after a while and
hopefully more jobs to you!
Occasionally we may reward our members for keeping up
a good work. We may have another "FREE Year
Membership" drawing for our members.
Quality Professional team hopes to help build
prestige of your business and promise to present your services in a
Can I cancel my membership anytime?
Yes. You can cancel anytime. Just send us an email or
give us a call. But remember that our money back guarantee expires after
60 days. If you decide to cancel your membership, please, remember that
once 3 of your close competitors from your town sign up, your return will
not be accepted. You may have to wait till one of them will cancel
Can I lose my membership because somebody posted a negative review about
depends. If we receive a very negative feedback from your client (over
the phone) we will do the best to investigate and find out what have
caused the problem and try to solve it. If we received another very
negative feedback within 1 year we may decide to terminate your
membership. But please, understand that we are not BBB and we can help to
solve a problem only to a certain extend. Although we strive to do our
best when pre-selecting and approving our new members we don't take
responsibility for their work or loses that may occur at a job site. Our
ratings system should serve all visitors to our web site as a helpful
point of reference when making decision about hiring a contractor.
Can I sell your services and products?
Occasionally we may offer part time positions for all those interested in
referring our services to professionals. Check our "Business
Opportunities" in the
footer or the "News" tab for any updates.
Can I refer my friend who lives in other State?
YES, you can refer all good and recommended Professionals from
anywhere in the US. You can recommend your uncle who is a good plumber in
your town, your mother who is a CPA or a friend from another state who is a
CEO of mid-size company. Basically, you can refer anybody
but we prefer that this would be a person/business you or people you know
can say something good about. And again, if any of your referrals will sign
up (using your name as a referrer) it will work towards your free
membership. Or, if we decide to start a "credit points system" one day, you
will be able to use those credits when ordering a web site, logo or other
