As MyHammer continues to grow and consolidate its place as Europe’s number 1 marketplace for trade services, 2011 will bring about a focus on the trade service provider and how the platform can best serve their needs. In keeping with this, MyHammer will be hosting our first ever online seminar to discuss some of the changes that we have implemented at MyHammer and answer questions from tradesmen around the UK.

The meeting will be chaired by Jim Hustwit, the UK Country Manager, and David Florczyk, the UK Product Manager, and will begin at 19:00 (GMT) on Wednesday the 9th of March 2011.

The meeting is open to all members of MyHammer, although the presentation will focus on the product from a tradesman / service provider perspective.

If you would like to join us, you can register for the seminar by clicking here:

We have listened to comments and concerns from tradesmen and service-providers and have modified the quoting process to offer two great new quote options! If a tradesman wishes to receive a customer’s details,  make their own visible to other potential customers, we have introduced a Featured Quote option. If he or she wants to keep a quote under wraps then the standard Private Quote option is perfect.

Below are some frequently asked questions about the new Private Quoting and Featured Quoting.

What is a ‘Private Quote?’
Up until now all quotes have been visible to the public – both to tradesmen and to customers irrespective of whether they are members of MyHammer. A Private Quote means it is only visible to the tradesman who makes it and to the customer whose job has been quoted on. The idea behind this is to avoid quoting wars whereby tradesmen persistently undercut each other in a bid to win the job on price which is unfair to the professionals and makes for a poorer service.
