Using websites like Checkatrade or Book a Builder for B2B?
Has anybody experience of using such website for B2B or commercial work. I feel as through they are more geared towards consumers, household, or general handymen workers.
I have a property development company and not sure if it is worth looking for customers on these websites.

Will we ever see a point in time when more people are working from home?
Given the circumstances its difficult to see a point where as many people will be working from home as they are currently.
There’s plenty of sources saying working that they are impressed by the results and found working from home more beneficial than previously thought.
