6 Reasons Why Your Contracting Company Needs a Quality Website
Are you a contractor without a website for your company?
If the answer is no, what’s holding you back? Trust us, we’ve heard all the excuses why some start-up contractors do not have a business website: “My business’s audience doesn’t search the Internet.” or “I don’t have time and resources to run a website.” But in today’s day and age, these excuses just do not work anymore.
Your business’s target audience is searching Google for local home services and contracting companies. Without an SEO-optimized website, you’re hiding your home improvement business and making it near impossible for potential clients to choose you! And if your business isn’t appearing as an option, then what remodeling contractors are instead?
If by chance still need some persuading, we have explained six reasons why your company needs a website specifically designed for contractors:
1) Customers Are More Trusting of Contractors with Websites
Not having an SEO-optimized business website means you’re limiting the total amount of customers that would be able to locate your home improvement business. In fact, 30% of people choose not to work with a company that does not have a website. Do you really want to lose this 30% of the clients you should be converting? Probably not. We help you reach your entire audience.
A good way to think about this is to picture in your mind a physical store location. If you had to select one of two storefronts, would you rather choose the type of store that has the inviting presence as well as window displays that feature their items for sale, or would you choose the dark and uninviting type of store right next door (that also happens to have its front door locked)? The solution is pretty apparent. Just like you would make your physical store inviting, websites needs to be as well. Clients want reputable contractors to have a professional online presence, and that begins with owning a website. One final thought. If customers aren’t finding your website, they certainly will land on someone else’s.
2) A Website Acts as a 24-Hour Sales Rep for a Contractor or Construction Company
Most contractors can’t operate all day, every day. In the event your prospective shoppers can’t fall asleep and go looking for a contractor at two in the morning, you need to provide a method for them to contact your company without reaching you by phone. Your site may act as a 24-hour employee for your company — always on the ready to answer questions shoppers have, display descriptions about your services, and make it simple for them to reach out or book a call. A web page makes your contractor business simple to reach, which as a result will help you convert better sales leads.
3) Consumers Are Looking for Your Company On the Internet
Google gets around 5.6 billion searches per day. It is one of the very first websites people go to search for a nearby business or contractors. In fact, someone may be searching for some type of home service or contracting company within range at this very moment — what are they going to see? Nearly all shoppers seek more information about a nearby contractor on the internet compared to any other place.
Word of mouth can only get you so far. If a client mentions the great job your company completed to their colleague, that colleague is subsequently going to try type your company’s name online to find more information. Although a few customers may still have an obsolete physical book of the yellow pages, that is highly unlikely. The first choice nowadays is to go on the Internet and search for a nearby contractor. As a small business, you want to own an SEO optimized site to optimize your online presence and marketing footprint on the search engine results list. If people are searching for your remodeling business, you need to provide whatever it is that they want so invest in a high quality contractor web design.
4) Your Company’s Website Helps With Advertising And Marketing Your Services
A report from the Local Search Association showed that 63% of shoppers utilize a local company’s web page to find and engage with them. Building a professional website with strong SEO (Search Engine Optimization) fundamentals will give your target customers the information they want. Improving your website to show up on the top of search results lists on search engine websites like Google will immediately put your company right in front of your prospective client. Avoid giving the future customer an opportunity to use a different contractor only because you don’t have a professional website for marketing your remodeling business.
5) Clients Want to Start a Connection with Your Brand
When making a large purchase or deciding on a contractor to undergo a large home improvement job, the consumer will want to employ someone they feel a connection with. Your website is the ideal advertising method to build a relationship with prospective clients more in-depth and communicate with them what makes your remodeling business so special.
With a website, you can have the foundation for putting a brilliant digital marketing strategy in place that allows your company to advertise content regarding the company history, employee profiles, and in-depth descriptions of your service offering (and price quotes, if relevant). You can also publish blogs or articles that answer common questions or topics, start a content marketing campaign, show the glowing homeowner testimonials you’ve seen, and have a gallery of professional photos of your successful jobs and services. A professional web design allows you to paint a picture for your prospective customer and give them a deep understanding of the caliber of contractors they’d be trusting.
6) As a Contractor, Getting Your Business Website in the Local Pack Is Essential for Marketing
Have you clicked on the image at the top of a Google search that shows different local business listings on a map? This is referred to as the local pack. As a contractor or owner of a local home service business, the goal must be to get a place in the local pack simply because it receives 44% of the overall clicks on the search engine results page. This is one of the most cost efficient advertising methods for contractors.
While Google does consider your proximity to the shopper, the business physical address, as well as the primary category, the search algorithm also takes other elements into consideration like your business website. If you have a professionally designed website with helpful backlinks, high domain authority, and a high click-through rate, you increase your opportunity of obtaining a place in the local pack. Lead generation, SEO, and marketing is a great way to help your remodeling business get more leads.
