Digital Marketing for Contractors

When I originally started working on digital marketing campaigns for contractors, my first thought was of homeowners searching Google to find a plumber or roofer. Look online and you’ll find many contractors with websites set-up for this type of customer. We’re all aware of websites like Checkatrade which are geared towards helping homeowners find good tradesmen.

With those thoughts in mind, I didn’t see digital marketing as a useful tool for contractors working in commercial and B2B markets. That type of business is driven by relationships and network. I was wrong!

Marketing for B2B, not homeowners

What I’ve found is that there are many scenarios where an estimator or an architect does use the Internet to find a contractor, and I’ve won work directly through paid online advertising and free organic advertising. Maybe an architect needs to find a subcontractor approved for a specific system. Or, maybe a quantity surveyor is dealing with a green roof and they’ve never dealt with one before. They ask their existing roofers if they offer green roofs and none do. So, they head to Google or LinkedIn.

I have no doubt that if you’re not running digital marketing campaigns, and if you’ve not reviewed your website performance in a long time, you’re missing out on opportunities which really do represent low hanging fruit. I can review your current activity and help you identify the key opportunities online to market your business. Together we can set-up a digital marketing strategy for your business. I can then help you execute and review.
