Whether joining or starting a company, next it's time to start teaching the tool which bids you want by adding in keywords about your company or business to improve the relevancy of what you see. Keywords can be multiple terms long (e.g. "parking lot", "bus parts", "mechanical engineering", etc.) or simple terms (like "fleet", "engine", "condenser", etc.). Multiple terms operate like specific phrases the tool uses to search through the Titles and Descriptions of each posted solicitation:
Once at least three keywords have been entered, scroll down to look at some samples of available bids and either add more keywords or enter negative keywords to eliminate some of the options:
Scrolling down the sample list of bids, those which the tool determines is a best match for the relevancy of your keywords will be at the top of the list. Any items that could possibly match, but may not be exact or only loosely related, are lower down the list:
While only 3 keywords are required to move into the next segment, add as many as pertinent to help the tool learn which types of bids to send you. From here, while the curated bid list is available, take the time to Increase Bid Relevancy.
