January 2014 Update

Today we released a few new things in your account and our beta testers have been loving it!

*IMPORTANT– current premium users require immediate attention, see next paragraph*

We made a change to the email editor that cleaned up the way the followup builder was building the emails… HOWEVER, that inadvertently stripped a bunch of formatting out of your current emails (now found in the “open status” email tab). Please take a moment and freshen up your followup builder “open” emails by putting in the breaks (hitting return) where some of them probably disappeared. Some of you might even have all of your paragraphs look like one big mass of text. We’re so sorry for this, but I promise it will make your emails look so much better in the long run and in all email viewers!


1. Followup builder for every status plus 3 custom*: (Premium users) You must customize and turn on the new emails for this to work, but now you can have a custom followup with every potential customer or past customer to either confirm jobs, ask for a recurring job, or salvage a relationship. You can now create a custom status and whenever a customer is moved into that status you can followup with them however you like.

2. The sidebar search feature: (All users) Now you can search for bids really quick right from your sidebar.

3. Better user interface for followup builder and cleaner email builder*: (Premium users) If you are already using the old followup builder, you will need to ensure that the open status emails, which are your old customized emails still look right… you may need to do some formatting. Also, you can now enable whichever followup emails you would like to followup in all situations.

4. Stop/resume followups: (Premium users) Now when you are in a customer’s profile you can stop a followup and either “re-start” it by changing their status in the regular place, or you can “resume” it by clicking a button where the “stop” one used to be!

5. Ability to send from up to 6 emails*: (Premium users) Now you can add up to 6 emails to get in on the followup process within the followup builder.

6. Ability to bcc yourself on followup emails* (Premium users) Now you can select any of up to 6 email addresses to blind carbon copy every time a particular email is sent out.

7. Ability to manually opt in/out customers for emails (All users) When you go into a customer profile, you can click on their email address and see if there is a green (opted-in) or a red (opted-out) envelope. By clicking on the envelope and saving, you can reverse the email status of that email.

8. Carpet cleaning & upholstery module* (All users) If you offer carpet cleaning as a service, go into your company profile and turn this service on. You will love how deeply we went in making the most flexible and straight-forward module we’ve ever made!

9. Tile cleaning module* (All users) Like the carpet cleaning module, you will be amazed at how this works.

10. Clock in sidebar (All users)

11. Tons of new toggle switches for better user experience (All users) notice how much easier it is where we’ve removed almost all checkboxes or radio buttons… it will be much easier to navigate for you and your customers!

12. Ability to set your own time zone* (All users) Go into your administration page and enjoy the ability you now have to set your time zone, and also the increments of the time picker (for when you are scheduling appointments).

13. Ability to add a scheduled time window to scheduled jobs* (All users) now you can tell ResponsiBid the date AND arrival window of a scheduled job… very handy for premium customers who want the followup emails to let the customer know when to expect the crew!

14. Tons of speed improvements (all users) You are going to love how we were able to speed ResponsiBid up even though we added all of these features.

15. +/- buttons on smartform and lightbox only show on mobile devices and are more elegant (All users) We now made it so that the + & – buttons are out of your way when you are on a desktop, but super handy on mobile devices!

16. Included storm windows in the “zero” check for window quotes (All users) Now you can do storm window only jobs if you want.

17. Better color coding and separation in the customer profile (All users)

18. Adjustment stability improvements (Deluxe & Premium users)

19. Ability to have a printer friendly version of customer profiles (All users) If you want to print out a customer profile it will now fit much better on the page and not destroy your ink cartridges.

20. Replying to the notification email will go to the prospect now (if there is an email provided)– (All users) Go ahead… hit reply now!

21. Reporting and booked jobs now reflect any adjustments made after a booking (All users)

22. Commercial bids can now be converted to residential bids (Deluxe & Premium users)

These changes have added a lot of functionality to you application, some of which you wold have to turn on if you want to use it. Anything marked with an (*) requires your attention to either turn it on, or evaluate how you’d like to use it.

July 2013 Update

ResponsiBid just released it’s newest update last night.
Here’s what’s in it:

Price Adjustments: You can now adjust the price up or down for extra factors or discounts without messing with the customer’s specifications. You can do it by percentage or dollar amount, and you can decide if you want to only apply it to the first job, or if you want to keep it as part of the job for future jobs.
4 New window styles: Enjoy the new separated slider style, hinged french door, garage door, and garden window style!
Price override notifications: Now you will visibly see when you are logged in if the price the customer was given was an override because of their house size, or the city they live in right at a glance.
No “0” window bids: No longer can an exact window cleaning bid be submitted with no windows.
Simplified customer profile: We cleaned up the stuff in there as a precursor to some interface changes we are working on.
New Connections: We introduce a connection to the Infusionsoft & All-Clients CRMs
New Blacklist Icons: Enjoy smaller (and user friendlier!) blacklist icons.
Other stability improvements and bug-fixes (Bid-in person is smoother, and an upgraded framework)

This release will allow you to use ResponsiBid out in the field and over the phone much easier since you can now fine tune the prices to the exact dollar amounts you want, and we have now opened the door for features that will allow promotions to run!

ResponsiBid and Customer Factor, Sitting in a Tree…

We had another release at ResponsiBid last night!There are several things that were released in this package, but the most notable was the new “Connections” area for premium users.We have been working really hard with a popular customer relationship manager (CRM) called The Customer Factor to bring a new way to save our customers time and energy.   Once you setup the connection (which takes about 4.3 seconds depending on how long your username is), ResponsiBid will automatically send your prospect’s data over to The Customer Factor waiting for you to book the job.Of course there were some other minor bugfixes and some other refinements, but I know many have been just waiting for something like this.

We Added More Stuff… Again

The last few months have been a wild ride.  We have been pumping up the ResponsiBid software really hard to get out a ton of new features.  And even though we would have loved to have beat the new year, we are pretty happy about where we are at now.  I know there are going to be lots more things coming down the pipeline, but I thought I’d take a minute to help spell out the releases in the recent past.Last night:The new “Black List” module:  You can “Hard Blacklist” lots of different criteria including IP addresses so that when they complete the bid, the person filling it out will get an error message to keep it from submitting completely.  OR you can “Soft Blacklist” a person so that they will get a message saying to correct the data that they put in. For example: If someone said their last name is “Doe” you could set it to ask them to try again before finishing that section (if it is “Soft Blacklisted”) or you could allow them to submit their bid, but give them a total error (if it is “Hard Blacklisted”).A shiny new red “delete bid” button.Minor bug fixes.1/11/2013:The new “Lightbox” install option.  You can install ResponsiBid in 2 ways now: The form style, or the new “lightbox” style that pops off the page and moves as more of a walk-through approach.  You can install the numerous ways, 1. Simply with our default button. 2. A 2 step process attached to your own image 3. or as a hyperlink.Internet Explorer fixes… Dang browser.You can now click directly from the notification email into the customer’s profile.Massive server overhaul and upgrades for quicker bidding and to handle all of the new traffic.Minor bug fixes.12/5/2012:You can now compare your company to the national averages in SO many ways.Minor bug fixes.11/30/2012:You can now edit a profile.  When you save the changes, it will re-calculate the bid and re-price the affected services (including house size!) so that your customer’s numbers are always up to date.Any followup emails that you have automatically sent from the followup builder that include a link to their bid will link only to the new bid– although you will still have access to the original bid AND original information from that original bid.Minor bug fixes.11/12/2012:Reporting module complete.  You can now track your advertising and see insanely clear insight which advertisers are tearing it up for you, and which ones aren’t.You can now edit HTML inside your fly-outs.Storm window disclaimer message/label improved.Internet Explorer hacks.Minor bug fixes.11/7/2012 (initial V2.0 PUBLIC RELEASE):Follow-up builder fully tested and complete.  You can now automate the followup process with people who get a bid, and it will automatically stop the followup once the person books a job, or declines the bid.Minor bug fixes.11/1/2012 (For Beta Testers):Lots of bug fixes with java scripts, and tuning of features.  Commercial bid tuning10/6/2012 Beta Version Goes Live (2.0):Over 500 new improvements over the old versionStreamline user interfaceAll new picture imagesLife gets awesome for ResponsiBidders!

It’s Kind of a Long Story…

In February 2011 we released ResponsiBid. It was a new concept built BY a window cleaner, FOR window cleaners. But it wasn’t a tool like any other window cleaning tools. In fact, most people would tell you that it’s a tool that NEVER should have been built by a window cleaner. It was “software” of sorts. If it was a squeegee or a pole or something, that would have made more sense. But software? Come on. Window cleaners need to stick to what they know.And that’s why I am so passionate about it. I am so tired of guys in suits making our software. They have no clue what our actual workflow is. They certainly don’t understand the complexity of the life of a business owner. They know code, and that’s about it. I shouldn’t be so harsh, but it has always been apparent that service businesses’ software addresses so little of what we actually need the software to accomplish, and therefore, is written by someone who is clueless. But I don’t doubt that their intentions are real.When ResponsiBid was first released, the outside developer I employed to build it apparently only understood the bare minimum requirements of what we needed the software to accomplish. It wasn’t until later that I realized he hadn’t built the software to match the vision I had for future updates. The code was built in a framework that was robust, but did not play nicely with new upgrades. It would “reject” so much of our new work by breaking other parts of the system that were previously working really well. It was frustrating to have all the ideas in my head bottlenecked by implementation roadblocks. It was like we were on a treadmill of working hard but getting no progress. When I realized that there was no way I could reach my destination using the current developer, I finally had to let him go. I hired several other developers to see if we could make more headway, but they all fell into the same rut, and eventually faded away. It pained me to think that all of the code I had spent my entire savings on could be such torture for developers to work into the future with. But that’s how it was shaping up.I’ve always been passionate about efficiency and execution of ideas. That’s where I get my energy and drive (which is quite high, actually). So I got on the phone with a trusted developer friend who had made some progress with the current code, but told me he wouldn’t be able to help me with it anymore. I asked him what we needed to do. The path I was on was just not going to get me where I wanted to go. My friend said, “I hate to tell you this, but you need to rebuild”. It was painful to hear. I didn’t want to have to start from scratch… and it was like being told that the last 2 years of my life were wasted. But it also felt so liberating. It was liberating because my friend shared my vision. Unlike all the other developers that I’ve been working with, he understood where I wanted to go–and he knew that I couldn’t get there with we currently had. So after a long discussion, we decided to get in front of a whiteboard.On the whiteboard, we had the freedom to architect the ideal product. We didn’t let anything hamper our creativity; my friend assured me that as long as we got all of it out onto the whiteboard we wouldn’t have any limits. And so that’s what we did. At the risk of sounding a little geeky, but I must say that after the first whiteboarding session I was shocked at how beautiful the new databases were architected… they may as well have been a work of art hanging in the Smithsonian in their simple yet elegant orchestration.Once we had the architect blueprints of what would be the future version of ResponsiBid, my friend set me up with a world-class designer—specializing in user interface design. We began a new whiteboarding session (are you seeing a trend here?) where we began to unfold how we wanted the user experience to be. It was so nice to have the knowledge and experience learned from the previous version combined with a professional at designing the very best menus and layouts for how the mind works. At the time I probably wouldn’t have believed this, but starting over from scratch just in light of this one realization, was probably the best thing that ever happened to our product.We began adding features, refining the ones that we had, and create user experience through an elegant, yet powerful framework and user interface. It was getting really exciting! We drew out a roadmap that would encompass years and years of new upgrades and then committed to what we would roll out in this next version.It became apparent that ResponsiBid was no longer going to be JUST a website plug-in for doing online estimates. ResponsiBid was quickly becoming the “opening to the sales funnel”. In all of our upgrades, we went through an evolution. First, we made it easier than ever to collect the prospect’s data. Then we made it easier than ever to customize their experience. Then we made it easier than ever to follow-up with the prospect. After all of that, we made it easier than ever to compare what was going on within your business to how it’s going for the rest of the world.Here are some questions that you will be able to answer at the end of every month, just by making sure you always use ResponsiBid to give your bids:What was my close rate? How did it compare to all of my other months? What was my average invoice amount? How did that compare to my other months? Which advertising is bringing in the best clients? Which advertising isn’t cutting it? And much, much more.But you won’t have to do anything except run your bids though it.So this has been a wild ride, to say the least. But it will be worth it. And when the new release comes out there are going to be a lot of people who won’t believe it. And I might be one of them. But it’s true. And it’s coming. Winter 2012 it will be available.

Do you own tools that you don’t use?

How much money have you spent on tools that you never use?

As a window cleaner, I’m a tool freak. I love tools. I just bought the AquaDapter from WCR and I love it. It’s the latest and greatest Waterfed pole tool you can buy. And I’m buying more. My drill uses lithium-ion batteries and it’s amazing.

Amid these super awesome tools, there is a problem believe it or not.

I was on the job site with my guys the other day and noticed that he wasn’t turning the water off with the AquaDapter. Doesn’t he realize what an awesome tool that is? Oh, and my drill? I use it about twice a month.

The problem with most tools, is that if you don’t use them they just sit. Wasted money. It’s almost as if some diabolical marketing genius forced me to buy a product that I refuse to use. Of course we know this isn’t the case, but sometimes it feels that way. I mean, seriously these tools are amazing and I spent a lot of money on them. But for some reason we get set in our ways or we buy something thinking it will use it and then we don’t. I bet you could give me one example right now of a tool you bought thinking it was super cool; and you told yourself that if you bought it, you where going to use it all the time. But you don’t.

So this is exactly one talking about: We buy stuff all the time that we don’t use –or worse, we don’t need.

ResponsiBid is just the opposite, it’s the tool you buy and then forget about. It works all by itself; it doesn’t need any encouragement, motivation, or micromanaging. One reason this tool has been so powerful in my business is that I really took my time in building my website to funnel everyone towards my big page. And then I installed the technology to take care of the customer who’s visiting the site. Once ResponsiBid knows what to do, it just does it. And it does it right every time.

So, what I hope you get from this post is that ResponsiBid will not become one of those tools they just sit on your shelf. It’s not one of those things with a telemarketer or the infomercial or the door-to-door salesperson convinced you in the heat of the moment that you needed only to find out that you’re totally fine without it and never used it.

In fact, I’d venture to say you’ll ask yourself how you ever lived without it! ;-)

You’re your own boss… How Nice.

You know exactly what I’m talking about.
You go to a party and introduce yourself as a self-employed window cleaner. You get one of two reactions:
1.) They look at you as if you’re one step away from being a homeless person who lives in a cardboard box on the side of the road.  (I don’t know why, but I get an insane amount of joy out of this reaction…)
2.) They look at you in complete jealousy– their eyes expressing how much they wish they had a super easy job and a super cool boss, like themselves, to work for.
Ha Ha Ha! Both of those responses make me laugh so hard.
The funny thing is that you’re anything but some ambitiousless homeless person. And you certainly are not a cool boss to work for. In fact you probably hate working for yourself. You force yourself to work long hours. You sometimes forget to pay yourself. You don’t give yourself any vacation time. Sick time?  Hilarious.
Kind of funny being self-employed, isn’t it?
Under the harsh conditions of self-employment live many different advantages, though. Interestingly, I often tell people that even though I’m self-employed, I’m NOT my own boss. I tell people that I have 1,205 bosses–or whatever that happens to be at the time. Having so many bosses (or clients), means that you are able to diversify your risk. Unlike most people who are hired by one boss, if the job dries up, they’re out of work. With us window cleaners, if we get fired by one boss (for whatever reason) we hope that all the other ones can keep us busy.
In any event, being self-employed means wearing many hats. And this means that we must be efficient. Groundbreaking, huh? I know you already knew that. But it’s difficult to be as busy as we are and still maintain a high degree of efficiency. I know I struggle with that all the time myself.
So I’ve distilled down my reasons for inefficiency into three categories:
1.) I’m burned out. When I get burned out I can actually feel it. It’s hard to get out of bed. I don’t smile as much. I dread when the phone rings, even if it’s a customer just begging to give me work. I can’t wait for the work of each day to be over. I’m not a doctor, so I can’t offer you a pill for this, and I don’t have a great way to help you avoid ever having this happen — but I can offer you some advice: For me, burn out is typically brought on by the next two items in this list, so if you can fix the next two things, you’ve got it made after just a little bit of rest and relaxation to get back into the groove.
2.) I have no goals that day. Lack of direction will send you into a tailspin of inefficiency quicker than you can say: “Getting Things Done” (yes, that was a David Allen innuendo). If you don’t know what you’ve got to get done, and you don’t have a list of things you’d like to accomplish each day, you have no choice but to be inefficient, right? I mean, if you aren’t prioritizing what you’d like to get done– and what you’re willing to do to get there– or who you need to talk to in order to get there; there just isn’t any other answer than inefficiency. I like to structure my day so that at the end or the beginning of the day I start writing goals out (or to use a technical term: “to-do’s”) so that I have a clear and defined path in reaching my bigger goals. My goals are often times small and achievable in and of themselves — but more often than not my goals are more of a vision. This vision ranges from my window cleaning company being a “customer service company… that just happens to do windows”, to making improvements within ResponsiBid to improve the lives of those who use it. I look at these goals or visions as I write my to-do list for the next day. Because my memory is so bad, I oftentimes will even include my bills or tax filings and whatever things are important to get paid into this list of things to do. These “action items” typically have no problem filling up my day with work.
3.) I am not being realistic. Sometimes my ambition is my worst enemy. I have no problem coming up with plenty of ideas, solutions, or other items to put on my list of things to do. But sometimes my “I want it… and I want it now!” attitude is what comes between me and my success. Burnout is often caused by what Stephen Covey refers to as, “not sharpening the saw.” The principle here, is that if you keep rubbing the serrations of the saw back and forth at breakneck speed without taking breaks to sharpen it — you end up with a really hot, energy sucking, dull piece of metal that is not getting you any closer to your goal. The answer here is to make sure that you plan each day with realistic expectations as to what you can accomplish in a reasonable amount of time. I’m as guilty as anyone who works too many hours each day, but I can tell you that if you schedule yourself to work no more than eight hours per day and make it a priority to squeeze all the important things into those eight hours, you will simplify your life in a big way. (And improve yourself at being a husband, father, or community member!)
In the final analysis, I have found that time management is rooted in goal management. Whether you’re a one-man band, an administrator of several crews, or just thinking about starting out on your window cleaning business. I know that when you are able to delegate tasks that pull you away from the really important ones you will discover a new found freedom of actually OWNING your business rather than being OWNED by your business.

SEO Exclusive for ResponsiBid users

Ok… I've been working hard on finding a great answer for my ResponsiBid customers, and now I've finally found it.
What every ResponsiBid user wants:
We've already determined that ResponsiBid can be used in many different ways, but obviously the more web traffic you're getting the more you are loving ResponsiBid. And some users need more SEO (Search Engine Optimization) to really get a leg-up.
Here's what I did:
I have used a guy who does SEO in Peru to take to the next level. He had me ranking #1 in my area within 2 months or so for all the keywords I gave him. It cost me about $100-$300 per keyword phrase.  (ie: "Gilbert, AZ Window Cleaning") It was worth it then… and it's worth it now. But I know we're all working on a budget.
What I've been working on for you:
I figured that if we are all using pretty much the same keyword strings (ie. *your city* window cleaning, etc.) We could combine our forces and use my guru (who already has great pricing) and get amazing pricing. Basically he does white-hat link building which is a fancy way of saying he makes your site look awesome to search engines for certain keywords without doing the stuff that will eventually get you in trouble with Google.  Also, he doesn't do too much on your site itself, mostly it's all stuff pointing TO your site.   I have been in talks with him to try to get you a price for 10 keyword strings that would cost A LOT less than what I paid… after all, he's going to have an easier time building off-site links for a bunch of related businesses, right?
The Deal:
All ResponsiBid customers need to get me a list of 10 of their favorite search terms for their site, for example:

Window Cleaning Gilbert, AZ
Gilbert AZ window Washing
House Washing in Gilbert… etc.

Use the google keyword tool (click here) before you submit it so you know you are getting ranked for keywords that matter!  I sent you an email about this, so you can just respond to that email for me to reserve your space.  The price hasn't been totally determined, but my guy plans to rank your site for ALL 10 keywords in the top 3 (and any other keywords that are naturally pulled up with the ones you pick) for about $199/month (2-6 months depending on how competitive your keywords are). HOWEVER…. if more than 20 companies come on… the price will start dropping FAST.
What you need to do:

You got an email from me today. Send me your list of 10 keywords that you determined you wanted to hone in on from the google keyword tool.
If you already rank well… pick keywords you don't rank as well for… or ones that keep jockeying back and forth.
If you have a secondary domain, use it to start dominating the first page.
Get these domains (limit it to 2 URLs for now– we can explore more later) and list of 10 keywords over by Wednesday afternoon (Aug 3rd)
Reply to me ASAP if you have any questions.  I can help you if you need me to.

We will have a price over to you ASAP after that and you can tell us if it's something you want to do.
So there is no initial commitment, but we could potentially get your ResponsiBid a huge amount of extra traffic for a very low price, so let's see what our buying power can do!
