Seaboard Steel has been advertising with The Blue Book for almost twenty years. We find it to be one of the most effective means of targeted advertising for our business. With thebluebook.com, the exposure our company receives is quite broad, especially with the link to our own web site as well as the ability to receive and respond to bid requests via BB-Bid. We highly recommend advertising in The Blue Book to any company that wants exposure beyond the area in which it’s located.
Phil Stanhope | Seaboard Steel Corporation | Sarasota, FL

Between the project leads we receive from your online service, and the number of invitations we receive from having placed our ad, we are going to have an incredibly busy summer around here! Our only regret is that we didn’t place our ad sooner. We are also bidding more competitively thanks to your online service because we are finding more subcontractors who are providing us with better pricing. The Blue Book online is incredibly easy and user-friendly. It’s an invaluable resource and we use it every day.
Carol G. Saunders, Office Manager | Visual Electric, Inc | Frederick, MD

I wanted to thank you for our advertising program with The Blue Book. It has proven itself time and again to be a good investment for a growing business. With the print book, we have always received good calls and exposure which have lead to several jobs. With the added value of BB-Bid, we are getting invitations to bid on jobs directly from our prospects and customers as well. We will be increasing our ad size to ensure continued success, and look forward to many more prosperous years with The Blue Book. This is truly “the best bang for your buck” advertising for the commercial construction industry.
Laura and Dave Pendleton | Crystal Clear Window Filming | Valparaiso, IN

The Blue Book Showcase was a great opportunity for networking and marketing. It was great to personally meet with the various general contractors to introduce my company and myself, allowing them to put a face with the name. I left the Showcase with many job leads and the opportunity to pursue future projects. It was also an unexpected pleasure to get reacquainted with many contacts from past networking events. I look forward to the next Showcase and encourage The Blue Book to present Showcase opportunities wherever possible.

We would just like to let you know how successful our advertisements have been in The Blue Book. On average, three out of five new customers have found our name in The Blue Book and we have received many jobs from our ad - including one of our biggest jobs last year. We do believe that we would not have the customer base that we have now if it weren’t for advertising in The Blue Book.
Matthew Foley, Owner | Cobra Concrete Cutting | Chicago, IL

We want to thank The Blue Book for customer service where the customer always comes first! Our Blue Book Account Manager provides us with industry information, project leads and always takes the time to ask if we need any equipment or building supply sources.
William Mohler, President | Los Gatos Construction Co. Inc. | Milpitas, CA

Your project leads and the contacts we have cultivated through the book are invaluable. It has enabled our company to get opportunities we wouldn’t have been exposed to without The Blue Book!
Dale Wageman, Owner | Fresh Air Systems | Chatswoth, CA

I recognized The Blue Book would work, but I didn’t think it would work so fast! Carroll Drywall Systems became an official Blue Book customer in 2003 and we have already landed three jobs from your Project Lead System. I could spend 60 hours bidding jobs provided by The Blue Book. The bid system makes it so easy! One General Contractor even sent us plans overnight after simply replying "interested" on the BB-Bid system.
Sean Carroll, V.P. Operations | Carroll Drywall Systems Inc. | Elyria, OH

Our business continues to grow thanks to The Blue Book and we are looking forward to many more successful years to come. Most of our work comes directly from The Blue Book and we are receiving requests to bid on projects through BB-Bid almost daily. In fact, we have received 220 messages to bid in the past twelve months! We will be expanding our marketing program next year to get into additional classifications and are considering enlarging our ad sizes to maintain a prime position in The Blue Book.
Jeff Harrison, President | Harrison Drywall Inc. | San Francisco, CA

Just a note to tell you that we are extremely pleased with our advertising program in The Blue Book. We have made numerous contacts and landed several jobs as a direct result of The Blue Book. Not only have we renewed our program for another two years, we have increased it as well, to give us even more exposure. Seeing is believing and The Blue Book has definitely made believers of us.
Lauralee Klabik, Office Manager | Wojcik Builders, Inc. | Bedford, OH

We want to take this opportunity to express our appreciation of The Blue Book. We have been an advertiser in The Blue Book since 1999. As a result of having an advertising program in your book, we have received numerous calls and inquiries for our services. We always recommend The Blue Book to various contractors in the industry as a great source of information. We think the project lead system is fantastic and have received over 200 public invitations to bid in the past month! We just renewed our advertising program for another two years and look forward to a continued and successful relationship with The Blue Book.
Hector Cabrera, Jr., Co-Owner | Precision Group Inc. | Peabody, MA

We have been advertising in The Blue Book since 1994 and are very pleased with our ad program. The first job we received paid for our advertising for many years. The Blue Book has produced numerous jobs throughout the years. We use The Blue Book to find subcontractors as well, and look forward to a long and prosperous association with The Blue Book.
Thomas M. Love, Owner | Love-Hartmann, Inc. | Menlo Park, CA

Over the years, The Blue Book has helped our company tremendously in numerous ways. Not only does The Blue Book offer a professional way to advertise and become known in the commercial construction market, it helps with information finding and multiple aspects of the bidding process. The Blue Book has been a valuable advertising investment and a time-saver for day-to-day office tasks. I always highly recommend The Blue Book and can do so because I know the immediate benefits of it. We are extremely satisfied with the outcome of our ad program and will continue to utilize The Blue Book for years to come.
Olivia Schmidt, Secretary | C.R. Schmidt, Inc. | Warrenville, IL

Our company has been in the concrete construction business for the last seven years. We have utilized our past work experiences and knowledge to gain notoriety in what we do best. But since advertising in The Blue Book, our company has become better known to those in need of our services and has lead to many new clients.
Sam Pizzuto, Vice President Mfg | Prestress Systems of Florida, Inc. | Fort Myers, FL

Because of outstanding results from my ads, I have decided to increase my presence in The Blue Book. Through BB-Bid, I was contacted by Folsom State Prison near Sacramento, CA and I was awarded a large-scale job. Shortly after, I received a call from Travis Air Force Base from the procurement officer who had a copy of The Blue Book. My bid was accepted and I just recently completed the job. The Blue Book has certainly been a worthwhile investment for my company.
Victor Guerra, Owner | Air Doctor | Rohnert Park, CA

I want to tell you how pleased we are with our ads in The Blue Book. The amount of leads that have come our way and the jobs we were able to bid and win have more than paid for the cost of the ads. The Blue Book keeps our name visible among those who actually specify the products used on projects. Thank you for helping me renew for another two years.
Rickey Hargrave, President | Helical Concepts, Inc. | Wylie, TX

Just a short note to let you know how pleased we are with the exposure that Grounds Keepers has received from The Blue Book over the last four years. I was especially pleased with the response from management companies and owners with offices out-of-state, but own properties in Houston. It’s proof that not only is your publication being used, but your Internet product is including us on jobs that we wouldn’t have normally - unless we advertise in The Blue Book.
Matt Redlinger, President | Grounds Keepers | Houston, TX

We have received numerous calls and inquiries about our company from construction managers, general contractors, owners and design engineers from our ad in The Blue Book. In addition, we have had bid invitations to several projects that we would not have been aware of without our Blue Book advertising program.
Jim Shutts, Division Manager | Baymarr Constructors | Antioch, CA

The Blue Book is the right place for our advertising dollars. Our ads generated productive leads and RFQs on several commercial projects. Keep up the good work on your very accurate and easy to use Blue Books! BB-Bid Internet exposure is also getting our name in front of those not familiar with our capabilities.
Mike Fernandez, Advertising Director | Efficiency Production, Inc. | Mason, MI

We have advertised in The Blue Book for over 10 years. During that time, we dropped all other forms of advertising. The Blue Book is the only one that works. We get Blue Book calls all the time. Our field and sales staff regularly use the books as a good source of supplies and customers.
Loree Komsa, Office Manager | East Coast Shoring, Inc. | Lanham, MD

We have received several inquiries via the BB-Bid online bidding and procurement system. The Blue Book is a great source for us to find out about job possibilities we would not have been aware of otherwise. This is an excellent medium for any commercial construction-related business!
