Start by inputting a product or service that you sell into the search bar to generate Bid & RFP requests. Use as many relevant keywords as you can to get a comprehensive list of bids. 

We can't stress this enough. Keywords are going to be your greatest tool in finding historical and open bids in our system. It is important to take the time to add every potential keyword. 

In the left-hand sidebar, you will see several features you can use to generate the broader search. We have given you a list of categories to pull from based on government purchase codes and a list of filters to refine your searches. 

Once you have selected all your categories and filters you can save these as an alert. This alert will update you by email everytime a new relevant bid is added to our database.

As you continue through the lessons we will dive more into the categories, filters, & bid alerts so that you can get the most out of this tool.
