I'm frustrated with the fact that you don't ask customers how long the project is for. My company specializes in dog-walking and pet-sitting, so I need to know if a customer only needs us for one day or a couple weeks, etc. Obviously, I am more willing to bid on a job that will yield my company more money (the two weeks of visits) rather than one that is only for one day. I have too much time and money invested into bringing on new customers to be bothered with a job that only lasts one day. It would also be extremely helpful to know their closest cross-street. We drive directly to our customer's home to care for their pets and just knowing the zip code of where they live is too general (especially for areas that are very large like some parts of St. Paul and Minneapolis). I need that information to help me decide if I should put in a bid. I, unlike some of the other responses, actually like the newer system of only being charged for customers who respond back to a bid rather than the old way. I do a lot more bidding because of that and don't mind paying a little more for it.
