Just like the dating game, tendering for work can be a time consuming, laborious and frustrating process, but it can also be massively rewarding. Finding your perfect match will set you up to reap the long-term benefits – locking in future work and ensuring business growth and continuity.

There are all sorts of different business opportunities on the market: tenders, requests for quotation, expressions of interest, and request for proposal, in various shapes and sizes. With so many potential suitors out there, how do you know where to start?

That’s where we can help.

Think of an illion TenderLink notification subscription like a match-making service for your business. But instead of wasting time and resources swiping through hundreds of tenders in an attempt to find the right one, you leave the match-making up to us. In three simple steps, we’ll have you and your ideal buyer partner matched in no time.

  1. We’ll set up your profile to make it clear exactly what you’re looking for and where, and filter out any relationship deal-breakers. You’ll have a better chance of tender success if you couple up with a buyer in your geographic location and tender within your area of expertise, so we’ll help you make sure you’re not punching above your weight.

  2. We’ll search through all the contract opportunities in the market and do the match-making to find the ones that best align with your business needs. We’ll deliver any shortlisted tenders straight to your inbox, and even include all the contact details you need to make the first move right away.

  3. If you’re lacking confidence or need to polish up your proposal skills, we even provide discounted tender response training to ensure you put your best foot forward when submitting your tender. Whether you’re new to the game or a practiced pro, our workshops will help you on your way to success.

illion TenderLink will pull out all the stops to present you with the opportunities that best fit your needs. But while you might bend over backwards to impress the buyer, sometimes you’re just not 100% compatible.

Losing out on a contract you tendered for can be disappointing, but there are plenty more fish in the sea, as evidenced by the hundreds of tenders we add to our system each day. Plus, we’ll notify you if any outcomes or award notices are published1, so you can find out which competitor got the better of you, when, and for what value. Tender outcomes also help you predict future opportunities – so you’ll be first to know when ‘the one that got away’ comes back on the market.

While our monthly roll-over subscriptions mean there’s no long-term commitment pressure, we do have hundreds of customers who’ve been with us for over 15 years – proving our services are a worthy investment that provides lasting value to Australasian businesses.

If you’re not keen on a blind date, you can request a free sample of the type of contract opportunities you can expect to receive from our subscription service.


This month, illion TenderLink are celebrating our 25th anniversary of bringing suppliers and buyers together.

It was 1994 when we first saw sparks fly between suppliers and buyers, and we’ve since spent 25 years providing world-class procurement services to keep them connected. Today, as Australasia’s largest tender marketplace2, we use our tender e-notification service to successfully pair suppliers of goods and services with the tenders and buyers best suited to their business.

See for yourself just how effective an illion TenderLink subscription is, and before you know it, you’ll be tying the knot with your ideal buyer.
