Ben Dyer reviews websites that put homeowners in touch with tradespeople including Rated People and Checkatrade.
An interesting take on the benefits for tradie referral sites.
Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.marketingdonut.co.uk
Let’s not beat around the bush, we are in the tradie referral business. At Home Giraffe we provide a channel for not only tradesmen, but also other businesses, to generate phone calls and leads coming directly into the business. Our model is much different to many others out there.
However these days it’s easy to spread your exposure widely, and even though many of these sites will tell you that you only need to be on theirs, we recommend you list your business on as many as possible. Here in Australia you have a large range of options, in fact, there are up to 200 directories you can list on that have the potential to generate leads for your business.
The above article is UK based, but much of the discussion is relevant to Aussie businesses.
