Building Product Distributor Contact Us
your Building Product Platform works
We place your digital sales literature on our Controlled Building Product Platform. That means several things:
• Your Suppliers digital materials never leave our platform. We simply provide each Dealer or Contractor with a their own branded platform channel … a subset of our entire Platform Network. All content must be relevant to our residential construction industry.
• This helps protect everyone’s copyrights, trademarks, trade names, content and images.
• Nobody, including Dealers and Contractors, can post directly to the Platform. This means we control content to ensure the safeguards that nobody can post any unprofessional or ill-words. Additionally, the Platform does not include big-boxes (Home Depot, Lowe’s, Menards). Plus, no Dealer can advertise ‘installation’ as it would be considered competing advertising against Contractors.
• Because we control all content within the Platform Network, that means your Suppliers can add, edit or delete any content across the entire Network in real-time, per our schedule. This way, buyers are always looking at your most current marketing materials.
• A Dealers Platform displays only their Suppliers products sales literature.
• A Contractors Platform displays the sales literature of the entire industry. This has several benefits:
