Have any questions ?

Here are some answers to our most common questions

I get all my work from referrals do I need a website ?

We all work on word of mouth, but now it’s blended in with technology, send me that link? what site was that?

Our sites make word of mouth faster and visual. Give potential customers the opportunity to see the quality of work they will be getting on your website.  It’s this visual proof that will inspire them to contact you and make pushing for a higher price that little bit easier. 

How to get my website found Locally?

This is carried out in a number of simple ways.  Your uploaded work images contain linked locations stamps, (this is just info on where the photo was taken) Google and other search engines use these to cross-check your contact information and compare it to your image location.  They form a search result that suits customers in your local work area.  We also add your site to google business and developed target local areas to focus on.

 

 

Can I do anything to increase my local SEO?

You are the best advertiser for your business.  You care about your reputation, this will naturally come across when you post to your site.  Just add a few lines of text with a few pictures of what you are doing and the end result.  Things to add are the place name the type of work being carried out and the materials used.

This really is the best way to show what you can do, how you do it, and keep your website up to date.

By thinking like this you will naturally get more local people on your site and this will leads keep the leads coming in.

 

Do I need photos for my website?

Your website needs a lot of high-quality images, they are just visual evidence of what you can do, they make your quotes memorable even if it is the highest received.  This acts as a trigger to the customer to think quality over price and more often than not they choose the quote with visual proof.

 

Can I take photos with my phone ?

Yes you can use your phone, smart phone cameras have higher resoultion than ever before,  high quality video stablisation means you can take short videos too!.  With the added bonus of an internet connection you can upload them directly to your site using our app, its just like posting and ad to Facebook or Gumtree.

Facebook comments are wreaking my reputation, How can a website change this?

If you have tried to market to customers via Facebook you may have come across this problem and a few others before, disgruntled former customers with negative comments running down your business.  Negative information is remembered by customers and will form part of their decision to choose you to carry out work for them.  This can easily be avoided with your own website as you have the control to filter comments and reviews.
The other big issue when dealing with potential customers on Facebook is the perception of professionalism.  Having a modern website to direct potential customers to that displays all your work images laid out neatly, in order and advertisement-free is always going to impress.

Can I use Facebook to get customers on to my website?

One option to use Facebook like a pro is to advertise directly on it.  This has proven to be effective for a lot of small businesses, but you need a website to direct your customers to, you need an efficient way to capture emails and guide your potential customer to book a quote or to get a callback.  Builders sites can do this for you with one of our managed plans which will boost your growth and enable you to choose jobs that are practical for you whether on price or location.

Do I Need a Website If I Have a Facebook Business Page?

Having a Facebook page is a great idea, it shows how you already know the importance of getting your company online.  This is a good supplement to your website but it should not replace it this is why.

Facebook doesn’t want your business to be found! in fact, they take measures to stop your page from being found.

Your friends might see some of your images but this is not enough, you need a website that can showcase your skills and work. Your website will be available to find on the entire internet, not just Facebook.  It will provide a solid base for your customer’s reviews of your business.

This cannot be done properly on Facebook and most importantly it cannot be found easily.  Facebook has built an ad-based platform so the last thing they want to do is make it easy for businesses to be found because they get less advertising revenue.

 

Can I use my domain name ?

Yes, you can use your domain name! having said that some names are better than others.

We would suggest that very long domain names are made shorter, mainly because customers tend not to remember them or spell them correctly.

We can access the value of your domain name, in general terms the older the better, as they have had more time to attract links.

If your domain is too long we advise adding a location into it, this will give you the edge on the local competition. an example of what this could look like is below.

Business name P and G Painters

pandgpainterslimited.com

pgpaintersofhull.com

This may not seem like a massive change but it will have a boost on your local results, as you have the service and location clearly marked out.  Google loves this type of domain and will show you higher in their results.

Who hosts my website?

We only use Site Ground hosting, as their service levels are extremely high, they also offer specialised page caching which works to speed up load time of your site. This is becoming more important to google ranking and customer experience.
