This post explains why and how we started the Renovation Directory as an effective means to add power to your local renovation expert or contracting business. The more chances you have of being found, the more chances you have of doing more business locally.
About The Renovation Directory
There’s so many local contracting and renovation companies across North America. Every little town to every major city.
Yet a lot of these professional renovation experts don’t have websites!
When you’re in a busy and hectic business (drywall, plumbing, roofing, whatever!) where you are both the owner, operator, and service provider, you tend to not have a lot of spare time. You’re insanely busy doing work for people, because that’s how you make money. Any down time is likely used to sleep or decompress from the toils of the day.
You’re a Busy Contractor, We Get it!
When you’re frantically working hard for people day after day, you may not seek to build a website. The time may not seem worth it to you as it could be seen as a short term loss.
When you’re in the heat of the moment, and have customers waiting – The short term gain of making money seems more appealing than spending money and time.
That’s Where the Renovation Directory Comes In
In the time it takes to write up a quick email with your contact information, you can add your company in a nice modern manner to the Renovation Directory, which can be easily found by users who are searching for you specifically, or for your contracting services in general.
We know a website might not be the ideal investment for you to focus on. That’s why we’ve made it very easy and FREE to post your renovation / contracting company’s listing as an advertisement on the Renovation Directory.
However, if you would like a website, we know a great local web designer who can design your website as well as host and manage it so that you can focus on your work, not on the website:
Consider Canadian Web Creations for local web design and search optimization
