[Replay: Best of the Built with Billd series] In commercial construction, marketing your business doesn’t come down to typical branding initiatives, like logos, websites, or brochures. You build your construction brand by delivering quality work in the field. However, you can only demonstrate that value once you’ve won projects where you can showcase that quality work.  For new subcontractors, it’s critical to understand how to submit accurate, reliable bids that set you apart from your competitors.
