Video Reviews From PWRA/WCRA Convention (Nashville, TN)
August 9, 2014
We had a few of our customers stop by our booth and give us a piece of their mind about the ResponsiBid. We decided to let them get it off their chest, and as you’ll see in the video… they really didn’t hold back.

It was really fun to bump into 3 original ResponsiBidders at the IWCA tradeshow and convention this year. Apparently they are still rocking it after all this time! Caution: Enthusiasim is contagious.
Video Reviews From NOLA Networking Event (New Orleans, LA)
March 3, 2013
We caught up with a bunch of customers at the NOLA networking event and found out what it was about ResponsiBid that gave them warm fuzzies. The cool thing was that everybody seemed to like something different!
It paid for the entire year in one day.
It paid for the entire year in one day! We love ResponsiBid because it’s different and not many of my local competition have anything like it; and it works hard even when I’m not. It was surprising that potential customers fill out the form, get a quote and request a cleaning without even calling us first. It even allows us to provide a quote to someone who probably prefers doing things on the Internet without calling a salesman for a quote. Yet I could use it to give quotes in the field with the same exact tool.
I was at dinner and I closed a job.
ResponsiBid has given me so much more time to do what I love to do, and spend less time giving quotes. I was at dinner the other night with my daughter and I closed a job while we were having a nice dinner, it was so nice! Sometimes people call when I can’t talk and it’s so easy just to send them to the website and let them know that they can use the same tool to bid their home that I would use if I were walking around their house. That way I know they will always be properly followed up with and it pays for itself many times each month just with that feature alone!
ResponsiBid is amazing.
ResponsiBid is amazing because Curt and his team are continuously making it better. I am very impressed with their friendliness and responsiveness. I would go so far as to say the ResponsiBid team has set a benchmark in customer support that all other companies could learn a lot from!
I’m blown away.
I just signed up for ResponsiBid last month. I built an entirely new website just to support ResponsiBid. In two weeks I’ve already saved enough gas from not running estimates that it’s paid for itself. I had heard nothing but good things and I felt it would be a good addition to my business. My old website was junk and truth be told I didn’t really want customers to see it. I’ve stepped my game up big time this off season. Also, I thought it was an unnecessary expense. I can see now, how it actually saves money. I’m blown away by how responsive Curt Kempton and his crew have been in helping me get up and running. They treated me like I was the most important customer they have. I would recommend to anyone.
Our business lifeline.
ResponsiBid has been our business lifeline. We have saved so much money and time using this program that for this reason by itself it has paid for itself monthly within the first week of every month. That on top of the number of jobs we have received from people who, like me, do not like to be “sold” to by a person. But ResponsiBid actually does a much better job selling without the customer ever realizing that is what’s happening. The automatic follow-up emails are an absolute must have! I would say 80% of the customers schedule after receiving a few follow-up emails and then they thank me for my promptness! It is just amazing– and I get the credit for it all.
Collect everything you want
Over the phone: You can collect as much or as little information as you want to get through the job quoting process. This ensures that your administrators have complete power to give awesome bids, but on their own terms.
On your website: You can set any fields you want to collect as required information so that you are only exchanging pricing information with people who give you their particulars. You’ll even have the option of blocking certain people from getting a bid again.
Systematize your bidding
Employees and customers alike will be led through an elegant bidding process that asks for the necessary information in order to run the calculations necessary to provide a systematic pricing structure customized by your business.
You’ll never have to worry that employees will mess up the math, or forget about a trip charge, area minimum, or any detail that you want to charge for.
By using a standardized way of bidding, your employees and prospects will not understand or need to understand how the pricing works, they will only need to be concerned with how to collect the information necessary for the system to figure it out and then neatly package it.
Super helpful simplicity
Our incredibly helpful graphics make it easy for your customers or employees to understand exactly what they are supposed to do. Since we make it all totally customizable (deluxe & premium accounts), you can adapt the wording of the titles and descriptions for your specific area and how your customers will interact with it. Don’t worry, your account comes loaded with all of the defaults and you simply turn off or change the items that you need to in order for you to use your own pricing strategy and lingo.
Proposals that sell
Our strategically built proposals have a way of closing jobs. Of course it’s helpful that it builds the quote instantly, and of course it helps that the proposal puts the value on the total solutions offered instead of a qty/unit price.
Of course it helps.
But the real magic of the proposals that ResponsiBid is that the price is presented in a way that makes total sense to the customer in the context of their problem they are trying to solve. It uses price anchoring to avoid the problem of unrealistic price expectations. It helps the customer to see the value of the solution provided, which will really cut down on hagglers who LOVE line item pricing.
The proposal offers up to 3 service levels which helps the customer feel that they have a good handle on pricing, making it less important for them to call competitors to determine if your price is reasonable… which often times results in a lost sale.
Your proposals will close more sales. In fact, our ResponsiBid users tend to see a close rate over 80% and at higher prices than before using these upselling proposals.
Know it all
You will learn things about your business that you never knew before. Imagine knowing the close rate of your bids. Imagine being able to compare all of your advertising efforts based on close rate, total revenue, and even the average ticket price of each invoice.
You’ll be able to see deeper into your sales structure than you ever thought possible and you’ll have to do absolutely nothing more than run your bids through ResponsiBid to learn this stuff. We’ve designed the system in a way to ensure that you get maximum information and automation with minimal input.
Follow-up that never forgets
Setup your own custom sequence of emails to keep your customers in the loop, and always in the path of your sales funnel. By customizing the approach of how your customers are interacted with you can be assured that not only will you have the flexibility of making sure every interaction is just how you’d want it, but you’ll also have the rigidity of never having a bad or forgetful day!
You’ll see to the right a real-time ticker showing off the close rate and average ticket price of our customers this month. This is the proof of how systematization never forgets to close a job the right way. Every time.

Will my price go up?
Only if you wait to sign up.
We hate price increases… and we guess you do too. We have always done everything we can to reward the early adopters who joined us when we were much, much smaller. As our software grows and becomes more powerful it will inevitably become more expensive. Our answer to that, is to treat our new users more as investors towards the big picture than anything else. As an investor in helping us to change the world, we guarantee to lock your price into the current price, and even though our prices will increase over time; once you sign up, they will never increase for you. Just another way we want to say “Thank you!”

If you don’t have a web master and would like to have one of our super geeks install ResponsiBid onto your website, we are up for the challenge.
Buy our developers’ and coaches’ time by the hour. We can hold your hand through the setup process. Typically 2-4 building blocks is enough to setup your whole account and customization.
How do I get it all setup?
Set aside an hour a day for 2-3 days.
We don’t recommend setting it all up at once. We do recommend that you follow the tutorials that we have provided for you, so you will understand how everything works together. The system can customize to your company’s individual needs, so even though we provide you with all of the necessary starter text and prices, you will still need to adjust the wording and prices to your company. Since you are the one most familiar with your prices, you will simply input your prices and descriptions into our system and your voice will resonate. Some people get frustrated when they have to setup their app, but believe us when we say, this is very rewarding. If you take the time to build it initially, the dividends are huge. Automation takes some time to get setup, but once you really make it work and feel authentic, you pretty much never have to touch it again because it works perfectly every time.
So take your time to look through all the builders and follow the tutorials we provide you so that you have the most awesome system ever!
Why does this work so well?
There are 3 main reasons:
Your prices are based on package solutions, not line-items to be negotiated. Your customers’ eyes will be drawn to what you propose is a solution not on the line items they are going to be charged for.
You are bidding against yourself. By offering up to 3 proposed solutions, you are helping your customer to put things into context and they are less likely to need to ask your competitors for a price to do the same thing.
Your company will be on the same page. When you can define service levels for your service in just a word or 2, it leaves less room for misunderstanding for employees in the field, in the office, or customers over time.
If I pay for this, how am I going to make money back?
There are at least 6 ways

Time savings. Finally do the things you really enjoy, or that create income, rather than spending all your time staring at a windshield.

If the premium version of ResponsiBid doesn’t pay for itself at least one time over using these methods, you don’t pay. That is our guarantee! (full details)
Do I have to have a website for this?
You don’t have to, but it’s cool.
ResponsiBid is designed to systematize and centralize your bids. If you DO have a website you’ll love that this awesome software makes it so easy to give a bid that even your customers or prospects can do it. That is why we made it so that you can allow your customers to take part in the process by installing our customizable “Smart Form” or “Lightbox” onto your website that they can interact with on their own schedule and with no pressure. It’s a neat feature that will help your company to adapt to the new world we live in where people expect an “amazon.com” type experience.
Isn’t this just a website tool?
The system we use to present the proposal to the customer has always been the most effective way to close jobs, but recently we made improvements to that the software would make it easy for your employees to give bids in the field, or over the phone. And because of our tracking feature you will automatically keep all of your employees in sync, while letting you know things like how your close rate is doing, and how you compare to the national averages.
