Favorites are companies from your private network that you know and have had success working with and want to work with again. As you gain more trusted contacts through SubOut.com you may add them to your list of favorites.
If your favorite company is not currently a member of SubOut.com, but you would like to add them to your list of Favorites, simply send their email address to the site. The Favorite receives a welcome email, and instructions on creating a Guest account on SubOut.com. That Guest account will grant access to the system.
When you create an opportunity for bid, you may choose to limit the group of bidders to your Favorites list. Once a company has been added to your Favorites list, they will be able to see every opportunity you create and bid on it. They will also see public opportunities from other companies, but may not bid on them, nor may Guest companies post work for hire, unless they become SubOut.com.com members.
Are there any extra costs I should be aware of ?
No. All you pay is the monthly subscription rate for the term of your contract.
