Website Designs for Tradesman

Do websites work for tradesmen?

Studies show that since 2007, more people have used Google search to find local businesses and services than paper phone books. With the success of mobile smartphones and laptops, getting information for tradesmen and local service providers is becoming easier and more convenient.

If you don’t have the website or one that’s not being marketed effectively, you are losing customers on a daily basis to local and national competitors. The quantity of those lost customers will steadily increase as the internet grows in popularity and competitors invest in their business promotion.

The rise of Homeserve

As a tradesman or someone  involved with domestic maintenance and repairs, you will have noticed the success of Homeserve. Their growth can be partly attributed to a well-designed website and the performance of the website when you search on Google for many important and profitable terms like ‘plumber’ and ‘home repairs’.

Beat your competitors on the search engines

Using the very latest (and ethical) Search Engine Marketing techniques websites can be optimised to appear much higher in the search engine results, increasing the number of free visitors arriving from Google, Ask & Bing.

As evidence of success, it’s possible you found this website by searching on Google for “web design for tradesmen”, or “marketing for tradesmen”. More examples of effective Search Engine Optimisation can be seen here –  evidence of search engine optimisation results.
