We often get emails or phone calls from vendors requesting an opportunity to work for us as a subcontractor. However, most inquiries don’t provide you with the necessary information for you to consider them as a viable partner in providing service to potential clients. They simply provide their names and maybe small details of how long they have been working in the industry. This is not enough information to make me want to use you as a subcontractor. The correct way to promote your business to a potential partner requires much more effort.
Some of the items companies will look for in a subcontractor is:
Company Start Date
Employees with company
Copies of insurance and licenses
Always have these items ready when you make contact with prospective partners so that they may feel comfortable working with you.
