Websites for the Consumer Service Industry
Why Your Service Business Needs a Website
Almost all homeowners and businesses need to call a service company at least once a year. Inevitably, something breaks, needs to be cleaned, wired or painted! There is no shortage of qualified professionals who could do the job, so how do you set yourself apart from the crowd?
In today’s market, the fastest way that people find a service business (if they don’t have a personal recommendation) is by searching on their phones, tablets and computers. A quick google search and instantly they have the experts that they are potentially looking for at their fingertips to browse and review. If you don’t have a website that educates consumers about your business, your competition may get the jobs instead.
Online Opportunities for your Service Business
- Broadcast Your Service Business:
An informative website for your business, properly engineered and designed to showcase your services, will provide your local customer base with the knowledge they need to make an informed decision.
- Share Your Knowledge:
Write content for your website that educates the consumer. You are the expert in your field and when you share that knowledge, you instill trust, credibility and consumer confidence that your company can handle the job.
- Your Mission:
Provide background information on your company. How did you get started. Do you have a mission statement? If not, we can help you create one.
- Before and After Galleries: (where applicable)
As they say, pictures speak a thousand words. Show what you do with a photo gallery! Before and after pictures resonate with consumers and get them excited when they see actual results.
- Online Appointment Setting:
Are you too busy to answer phones and schedule appointments. Utilize an online appointment scheduler. Customers can request/book appointments online. Confirmation emails and texts automatically remind customers saving you the possibility of showing up unexpectedly. We will help you select just the right scheduler for your business and integrate it into your website.
- Generate New Business:
Your website works for you 24/7. It should communicate important facts about your services and business, provide a call to action, easy to locate contact information, and must be user-friendly. There is a lot of competition out there and your website can provide valuable information to help grow your business.
