Conversation was helpful in cooking. You mentioned that you wanted to start selling your contract services and your cousin gave you the name of a boy who builds websites as a side job. When you spoke to him, he said that before the end of the year you will be able to get a basic contact page online. Wait a minute. By the end of the year? The peak season is coming to an end. You want to get more customers – soon.
What is wrong with this picture?
Benefits of a professional contractor’s website
A complete website (not just a contact page) is a business building tool. The basic benefit of your website is simple: it draws attention to your company
It’s a digital world, with 97% of consumers looking for local businesses online. Your prospective clients read reviews, send emails to friends, and do alternative research. A professional website allows you to be a part of the conversation.
But if you look at the contractors’ websites, you will see that some of them are top notch and others are more general. An effective website does more than just educate, it encourages visitors to be customers
The quality of your website gives visitors a sense of the quality of your work. In order to attract leaders, you need to design your website with the thoughtful precision you bring to their home or business. And just as you talk face-to-face with customers about your services, a well-designed website allows you to connect with potential customers and share your story.
In addition to displaying photos and descriptions of your work, your website lists your scope of service, your credentials, customer testimonials, your contact information – and most importantly, why doing business with you is a good decision.
Why Choose a Professional Web Designer?
Just as you recognize DIY efforts when you see them, you will know your own website (or if your cousin knows the person you hired) your potential customers.
Work with a professional designer to give prospective clients a better sense of your business. Designers know their marketing tools and will create a website for your business that showcases your projects and your personality. They also have expertise in search engine optimization (SEO), a keyword-based technology to help customers find your site.
The designer ensures that prospective customers have a friction-free experience when reviewing your site using the appropriate programming code and site architecture. The digital world is also mobile, and designers can customize your website to make it look good on any device – laptop, desk, or smartphone.
No need to worry about maintenance
Yes, even websites need to be maintained in accordance with changes in programming code standards. A professional web designer can keep your website up-to-date and up-to-date to protect you from hackers. And to keep your website current, the designer can publish the latest news and project photos.
Elements of a professional contractor’s website
If you are just starting out or trying to increase your customer base, a useful website includes the following:
- A home page with the name and logo of your business
- A ‘About Us’ page that describes who you are, your credentials, and your experience
- A list of services you provide, including clear, high-quality photos of past projects
- Consumer reviews, from personal opinions to video evidence
- A blog that provides customers with useful information on a variety of topics relevant to your industry
- Contact page with links to your address, phone number, quote form request and the social media accounts you may have for your business
A web designer can help you with technical details:
- Your Domain Name – Basically Your Business ‘Call Card’
- Your Website Hosting Service – The company that manages your website and email
- The Content Management System Tool is used to build and upload information to your website
The investment you make with a web designer will pay off.
You have access to a wide market of potential customers.
For customers who ‘shop’ for 24/7 services, the information will be available after hours, saving you time to reach expectations.
You will be able to spend less on traditional advertisements such as newspaper ads, flyers, or trade shows.
Do not be lazy with your computer-savvy brother-in-law or the guy who gets an IT degree and goes down the road. Hire a professional web designer for your business.
