Contractor Directories + Project Lead Finder + Keyword Search

Get direct access to contractors ready to buy your materials

Contractor Directories:

Gain access to more than 55,000+ general contractors and 350,000+ subcontractors with Planhub’s Directories. Use segmentation options to hone down on the right contractors. Reach out to new contractors interested in projects requiring the materials and products you — or your competitors — sell.

Find qualified leads

Sales cycles can become too long or fall apart altogether if the timing isn’t right. Make sure that your sales efforts are directed to contractors ready to buy. Use keyword search notifications to identify the right projects, and Project Activity Metrics to know which contractors have viewed, downloaded, and bid on a project your materials are required. It’s like having a crystal ball telling you which contractors are interested and ready to buy your materials.

Project Lead Finder

Connect directly with architects, developers, and owners by unlocking hard-to-find private projects in early planning and design stages. Lead Finder adds over 3,000 projects a month, and 99% have detailed individual contact information. Get into the consideration set early, so you are ready to go when the project is funded and open for bids — and develop solid relationships that pay off short- and long-term.

Keyword Search & Notifications

No more guessing if a project needs what you are selling — now, you can search by keyword, scan through project documentation, and know exactly which projects to approach. Keywords can be your product category, product name, brand name, or even your competitors’ products. Use filters like ZIP code, distance, construction type, trade, sub-trades, and bid due date to find the projects you want. Save any search terms and receive email notifications when your keyword is found in a new project.

PlanHub’s integrated takeoff software is built directly into PlanHub, so there’s no additional software to install. With Takeoff, you can do more than just create a library of measurements. You now have the power to label and categorize every aspect of the project with CSI codes, unit costs, material, labor or other distinctions. This helps you keep all data organized and easily accessible with just a few clicks.

Driving New Growth with Leadfinder
FTECH Organization & Storage

CHALLENGE

Finding new ways to generate leads is always a challenge.

“Getting in front of the right people, at the right time. It’s all about timing, really. The most frustrating thing is when you find out about a project, but it’s already been put out to bid.” 

“Finding the right person to speak to is hard. Is it owner-provided? Is the city bidding it out, is this county bidding it out? Did they already find somebody? Those pieces can be challenging.”

 

 

SOLUTION

As of March, Sara has been a PlanHub Premier member for three months – and she’s finding PlanHub extremely useful. One of her favorite features is Leadfinder which she uses to identify projects early in the planning stage, connect with more project owners and general contractors, build new relationships, and continue to grow her family business.

“I like the flexibility of the search. I can filter by type of construction or building — we do a lot of government work. I can narrow it down using keywords to find projects that call for our products like shelving, mobile shelving, and lockers. And I can find projects that are still in the planning phase.”

RESULTS

Leadfinder is valuable

I can find projects early on and follow up from there.

Matching leads

I can get in front of people at the right time.
