"The mother of all builders programs & it's Free"

Unique Partnership Proposal for Professional Builders

This fantastic program is offered FREE to all builders, trades persons, architects, engineers and owner builders.

Why is it FREE?
I am a residential & commercial builder of 40 years experience and now work as a Project Manager for a large housing company. I developed the estimating program for my own construction business after becoming totally frustrated with the commercial products which proved to be both expensive and confusing (especially after chasing a hammer around all day). For a challenging hobby I have sold my program successfully for a number of years to builders and trades persons throughout the world.

Now I am going to experiment with a unique marketing system that just relies on a persons appreciation of being given a fantastic product that can revolutionise their business process, success and profitability. Think of this as a business partnership. I provide you with a free to use tool that makes your business money, then what is that assistance worth to you? The program calculates a Donation Usage Fee of 0.01% of the total contract value. You should include this cost as part of the quote to the client and the program allows you to add this small cost into the Preliminaries Worksheet. So effectively if you win the job, the client will be paying for the Usage Fee. Jobs you don't win there is no cost payable. As an example quote on and win a $300,000 job and this will have included a $30 Usage Fee subsequently paid for by the client.
If I can provide you with a highly efficient, accurate and easy to use program, you should welcome the ability to repay in kind on the jobs you win. All I ask is that you respect this unique and generous offer and that you are mindful of the hundreds of hours development that has gone into producing such a useful program. You could spend a $1,000 ++ on more complex programs and they may still not be as good. This program is brilliant for the small to medium size builder with a turnover of say $100,000 to a few $million.

I hope you like the program and I trust you will engage and honour a commitment to this generous arrangement for many years to come. Thank you. RG.
