I am tradesman, what's the benefit of signing up with you?


Lokalista.net was conceptualized to help skilled Filipino tradesmen. This is the very reason we do not take commissions from your sales. Imagine if you are an electrician and signed up with other job websites. They will negotiate the contract for you but gets a 10% commission from the total project cost. If for instance your total project cost is valued at P20,000 you will lose 10% or P2,000 as commission. In comparison, Lokalista.net will only cost you P200 per month as space rental for your online profile (no hidden charges). All negotiations will be between you and the customer. The more customers you get through our website, the bigger your earnings, the happier we are to be of service to you. We enlist You... Customers Contact You... No Commission Guaranteed
