A website is a new tool for trademen
In this day and age every business needs a website from day 1. Times have changed as rather than looking in the local ads in the back of newspapers for a tradesman people just use Google to find what they are looking for.
Gone are the days of the Yellow Pages book – the older generations are now web-savvy and are using their phones and tablets to find what they are looking for. So whether you are a sole-trading builder or large roofing company, owning a website is essential. You need one just to compete with your local competition.
Some tradesmen will no bother with a website and just have their contact details on such directories like Checkatrade, Trust-a-Trader, Rated People etc. But by having a web link to your own website will only increase your business profile, make you look professional and trustworthy. It’s a fact; Many web users will ONLY contact a business IF they have a website.
Why is a website for trademen so important?
- A quality website can give your business the credibility needed to secure more leads and work
- Websites generate more leads than Yellow pages, Newspaper Ads, Leaflets
- You can direct people there to see your company info, services, customer reviews and contact information
- You could see your return on investment instantly via new work that you achieve from your website
- There are hundreds of people in your area looking for your services every day – some of them are your ideal customers
If you are a plumber, roofer, electrician, cleaner, builder or anything else – then you need to be online otherwise you are potentially turning down work by not being found on the net.
