    Hi MacRumors,

    I'm working on my first startup and figured that this would be a good place to get some feedback. The website is called The Service Auction, and targets homeowners who need work done. Contractors can sign up for free, and they are pre-screened and verified by us. Once registered, they can bid on jobs posted by the homeowners. When the auction is over, the homeowner can choose a winner after assessing the feedback and recommendations of each contractor.

    With this system we solve the hassle that people face when trying to find someone to finish a job they need done. On the contractors side, they can optimize their customer list geographically or by job type.

    Right now I'm mostly working on marketing. So far, the site is running Google analytics, a sitemap is submitted, and meta keywords are up. The next logical step is an adwords campaign.

    Let me know if you guys have any ideas/suggestions/experiences to pass along - I appreciate it a lot!
