RoughEst Instant Estimate Calculator allows website visitors to easily and instantly calculate a rough price range estimate for your services.

The Run-Down:

Problem:

You receive a sales lead, schedule a meeting with the customer, drive to their location, give them a full consultation, and present them with the price only to watch them experience sticker-shock in real time. All sorts of disappointment ensue, and all the time spent on this lead ends up wasted.

Solution:

The potential customer finds your website. They plug in some rough dimensions for their project and immediately receive a rough estimate for the job. They deal with the sticker-shock on their own, they might do some additional research, but by the time you receive that call the customer already knows they are comfortable with your price range.

Conclusion:

This plugin is intended to reduce the amount of failed bids you spend time and energy chasing around town, and increase the percentage of your bids that are successful. Advanced website features like this also separate you from the competition, chances are your competitors' websites aren't more than a pretty online brochure. Your website is now a functional employee of your company, one that saves you time and money.


This plugin adds two instant calculators to your widgets panel:

  1. Cost per Square Foot
  2. Cost per Run

1. COST PER SQUARE FOOT CALCULATOR

  • Customer enters two values
  • Calculator multiplies them to get the sqft
  • Multiplies that number by your cost-per-sqft
  • Generates total and displays a price range
  • Range is based on -/+ % of the total (ie. 60%-120%)

EXAMPLE (COST PER SQUARE FOOT):

  • Customer types in ’10’ for both values
  • Sqft calculator multiplies 10×10, produces 100
  • Your cost-per-sqft is 100, 100 x 100 = 10,000
  • 10,000 is the base number used to find the range
  • Low range set to 60%, 60% of 10,000 = 6,000
  • High range set to 120%, 120% of 10,000 = 12,000
  • Price range displayed: $6,000 – $12,000

2. COST PER RUN (SINGLE VALUE) CALCULATOR

  • Customer enters one value
  • Calculator multiplies that number by your cost
  • Generates total and displays a price range
  • Range is based on -/+ % of the total (ie. 60%-120%)

EXAMPLE (COST PER RUN):

  • Customer types in ’10’ for the single value
  • Your cost-per is 100, 10 x 100 = 1000
  • 1,000 is the base number used to find the range
  • Low range set to 60%, 60% of 1000 = 600
  • High range set to 120%, 120% of 1000 = 1200
  • Price range displayed: $600 – $1200
