Is Your Plumbing Website Working For You Or Against You?

Having a website is like having a cellphone, without one it’s hard to live your life, let alone successfully run a business. However, in an age where 90 percent of consumers read online reviews before deciding to use a company’s products or services, and 93 percent never look beyond the first page of search engine results, a website must do more than simply exist. In order to attract consumers, build brand loyalty, and grow your business, your website needs to have a few key attributes.

4 Must-Have Plumbing Website Features
Almost every home or office will have to call a plumber at least once a year. To find the best plumber, the majority of consumers will turn to a quick Internet search. Upon visiting a website the consumer will decide in less than nine seconds if they want to learn more or visit a different site. When first impressions mean getting the call for a new job or watching your competitors take all of the new clients, it’s vital that your plumbing website works for you, not against you. If you want your website to be more than a URL, then you’ll need to use the following four features to attract customers and build your business.

  1. Clearly listed services. — New customers are typically calling about specific services. As such, your website needs to provide a bulleted list of your services along with a brief description and a linked contact us call to action. By listing your services and a small description you can optimize each page for certain keywords. For example, under the Residential Services page you might discuss clogged drains, frozen pipes, sewer system repairs, water lines, sump pumps, and plumbing maintenance. Remember that 93 percent of consumers won’t look past the first page of search engine results, which means that the right keywords and SEO best practicesneed to be used if you want to reach the top results.

 

  1. Links to products. — Does your plumbing company use certain products? Does your team specialize in working with certain brands? If you answered yes to these questions, then you need to include descriptions and links to these products or brands. A customer wouldn’t take their Porsche to a mechanic who specializes in Hondas, so why would they use a plumber who doesn’t specialize in repairing their Miele, G.E., Wolf, Samsung, Maytag, etc.? In addition to mentioning your team’s specialties you should also let customers know that your plumbing company only uses the highest quality tools and materials, such as those provided by WHEELER-REX.

 

  1. A blog with helpful articles. — It’s not enough to simply state that your plumbing company is “the best,” or “incredibly knowledgeable,” or “dedicated to high quality work,” instead, you must show these attributes. A blog is a great way to establish your status as an industry expert. Whether you want to discuss the dangers of DIY plumbing on leaky pipes or create an infographic that showcases the warning signs of a faulty furnace, a blog is a great way to show future customers that your team is truly the number one choice.

 

  1. The right mobile friendly layout. — Over 60 percent of online searches are conducted from smartphones or tablet devices. Simply put, your website is working against you if it is not mobile friendly. To make your website mobile friendly, make sure that the content is easy to read, paragraphs are written in manageable sizes, graphics and photos load quickly, embedded links are easy to find, and contact information is prominently displayed. When people are on-the-go they don’t want to spend precious minutes searching for information. Instead, they want to open your site, see that you offer the desired residential or commercial plumbing services, and click on an embedded contact us phone link to call to make an appointment.

 

Make Your Plumbing Website More Than A Page On The Screen
A plumbing website doesn’t have to be filled with fancy graphics to be effective. It doesn’t have to contain pages of information to be informative. Instead, if you want your website to work for you, then it needs to clearly list your services with an appropriate call to action, include links to high quality products, feature a blog with useful (and up-to-date) articles, and be mobile friendly. Through these four features you can increase the effectiveness of your plumbing website as you look to find new customers, increase brand loyalty, and successfully grow your business.

Why SEO Is Important For Contractors

In the old days, contractors would often build their businesses solely through word of mouth referrals. These referrals would come from existing clients who would point their friends and family towards the Yellow Pages, where the contractor’s contact information and maybe a quarter page ad would be listed. To further aid business growth, contractors would also use billboards or lawn signs to advertise their in-progress and completed projects. As the days progressed, the lawn signs and billboards saw the addition of websites, social media pages, and online reviews. Together, all of these tactics form crucial components of any contractor’s marketing efforts. However, in today’s world, if you want to grow your business, then you need to remember the importance of SEO.

 

Digital Marketing Is Only As Good As The SEO It Implements

Did you know that your digital marketing efforts are in vain if you aren’t reaching the right audience? Did you also know, that you can only reach the right audiences through SEO best practices? Before you panic about your lack of SEO, take a deep breath and remember that SEO can and should be easy to implement thanks to the following tips.

  • Keywords Are Your Basis. — Just as every house has the ideal type of foundation for its surroundings, so too does every SEO campaign need a solid foundation. Keywords are going to be this foundation. From your website to your social media posts, keywords will help you achieve better rankings, which in turn will place your contracting business in front of a wider audience. Through audience and industry research you can discover what keyword terms should be naturally included within your content. For example, let’s say that you are general contractor in Aiken, South Carolina. As such, the home page of your website should include the phrase, “Aiken, South Carolina general contractor.” Conversely you might design an SEO friendly social media campaign that leverages local hashtags to attract additional business. For example, you might use #generalcontractor or #Aikenrenovations.

 

  • Local SEO Is Always Needed. — Unless you own a contracting business that has subsidiaries throughout the country, you want to make sure that your digital marketing efforts always have a local SEO component. If you do own a contracting business with subsidiaries throughout the country, then you will need to make sure that each location has a local SEO component. Enjoying the benefits of local SEO starts with claiming your Google My Business page. If you want to appear on GoogleMaps, then you will need to claim your free Google My Business listing. Once you have claimed your listing, you can build out your profile and add relevant details, such as: hours of operation, address, photos, service information, your website URL, and phone number. Additionally, your page will now be eligible for Google reviews, which will further increase your search engine ranking and place you in front of potential new clients.

 

  • Use SEO To Solidify Your Status As An Industry Expert. — Contractors often face fierce competition; as such, you need to find a way to stand out from the crowd. Fortunately, the right SEO strategy can help you reach new customers, while simultaneously showing the attributes of your business. Through inbound links you can increase the authority and relevance of your website pages. Pages that have more authority will typically receive higher rankings for their optimized search terms. Through blog posts that feature before and after home renovations, or providing insightful tips that include inbound links from your equipment and tool partnerships, you can use SEO to your business advantage.

 

SEO Increases Digital Marketing ROI
The moral of the story is simple, if you want to increase the ROI of your digital marketing efforts, then you need to embrace both local and national SEO best practices. Through SEO you can reach your target audiences, increase your search engine ranking, establish your company as an industry expert, and successfully grow your business. Finally, with the help of SEO you can connect all of your digital marketing efforts to maximize your ROI across all campaigns. From social media posts to email blasts, your website pages to your blog posts, SEO is the common thread that will boost your digital marketing efforts, so that your contracting business can continue to thrive.

Growing Your Plumbing Business Starts With Reliable Tools

Growing a plumbing business is hard work. Competition is fierce, and in an age of DIY home improvement projects, far too often people think that they can resolve their plumbing issues only to discover that they have made things far worse. Fortunately, for every DIY mishap there is a business opportunity to provide exceptional service.

4 Tips To Grow Your Plumbing Business
From email marketing to word of mouth referrals, there are several steps that you can take to start growing your plumbing business.

  1. Use Reliable Tools.  Growing any business starts with the right tools, and plumbing isn’t an exception. You can’t expect to exceed a customer’s expectations, or to resolve their plumbing issues, if you are using faulty tools. From your pipe cutters to your crimping tools, every single item in your truck and toolbox needs to be the highest quality. WHEELER-REX offers the best pipe tools in the business to help you grow your plumbing company into a local or national force to be reckoned with. Whether you focus on large commercial jobs, want to become the go-to plumbing company for condos and HOAs, or you prefer the diversity of working on all types of residential projects, WHEELER-REX can ensure that you have the tools needed to succeed.

 

  1. Find Your Niche.  Speaking of focusing on certain types of projects, the easiest way to grow your plumbing business is to discover your specific niche. Will you focus on repairing sanitary equipment? Do you want to focus on installation products? Should your company become experts at installing an entire plumbing system for a house or commercial building? No matter the answer, if you want to grow your business in a cost and time effective manner, then you need to focus on one niche sector at a time.

 

  1. Always Submit Essential Documents On Time.  Contractors are notorious for trying to avoid paperwork like the plague. When working with a builder, you should submit all necessary forms on time. This includes submitting any plumbing clearance certificates, forms, guides, and proposals. By submitting this essential paperwork on time, you can gain a reputation as a reliable plumber who is easy to work with; this reputation will help you to more easily grow your business. Speaking of important documents, don’t forget to fill out the warranties on all of your essential tools and products.

 

  1. Offer An Incentive For Word Of Mouth Growth.  Word of mouth marketing is one of the most cost effective ways to grow a business. Why? Simply put it doesn’t cost you a penny. However, in order for word of mouth marketing to work, you need to offer your customers a valuable incentive. Whether it is a referral punch card that offers a discount on future services or early access to future promotions, your clients need to know that you will reward them for helping you. As part of this step, make sure that you have a memorable logo, a catchy slogan that succinctly describes your services, an SEO enhanced website, and great reviews on Yelp, Google, and Angie’s List. If you don’t have a cohesive business presence that supports your customers’ claims, then their referrals won’t lead anywhere. In other words, your future clients need to be able to find you easily via phone, email, online, and social media.

 

“Don’t Put Off Tomorrow What You Can Do Today.”
With the above four tips at the ready, growing your business doesn’t have to be something that you simply talk about. Instead, you can take action to begin a successful expansion into new local or national markets. Start with the right tools, identify your niche market, submit all paperwork on time to avoid costly project delays, and give back to your customers so that free word of mouth marketing can work to your advantage. Through these four steps you can and will help your plumbing business reach new heights.

Online Reviews: Just How Important Are They To Growing Your Plumbing Business?

Did you know that 91 percent of consumers read online reviews on a regular basis? Not only do the majority of people read online reviews before choosing a business, but 74 percent of consumers say that positive reviews increase their trust of local businesses.

If these statistics weren’t enough to convince you of the importance of online reviews, then you should know that 84 percent of people trust online reviews as much as they trust the recommendation of a family member, friend, or colleague. In other words, if you want to grow your plumbing business, then you need to take the time needed to gather positive online reviews from your existing customers.

Where Should You Have Online Reviews?
The three “big hitters” for online reviews are Facebook, Google, and Yelp. In fact, the majority of consumers often turn to these three sites to determine if they want to purchase products or services from a local business. While you might be tempted to only focus on one of the three sites, studies show that all three offer different advantages.

Facebook reviews can help you to:

  • Increase your social media following, which is especially beneficial if you want to complete any social media advertising campaigns.
  • Create transparency and inspire trust in your plumbing business.
  • Improve your digital footprint. A larger digital footprint makes it easier for new customers to find your plumbing services.

 

Google reviews can deliver the following benefits:

  • Build trust and credibility, which are two vital components of the consumer’s decision making process and buyer’s journey.
  • Make it easier for vendors to connect with you, so that you can have access to the latest and best plumbing tools like the whole line of WHEELER-REX tubing cutters, threading machines and hydrostatic test pumps.
  • Increase your SEO ranking. Google reviews play an important role in determining where your website will rank for both national and local searches.
  • Expand your local business by providing “social proof.” Whether it is through an online search or GoogleMaps, Google is the first place where many of your potential customers will see your plumbing business. The number and quality of your reviews will greatly increase the likelihood that prospects will choose your business.

 

Yelp reviews can introduce you to a different customer base, while simultaneously offering the following benefits: 

  • Positive Yelp reviews will lead new customers to your site to deliver higher click-through rates and an increase in the number of unique visitors. While the intricacies of Google’s search algorithm are a bit of a mystery, it is widely known that high click-through rates, coupled with a high number of unique visitors, leads to a better search ranking. Ranking higher in search results can and will lead to an increase in customers.
  • Yelp has been shown to increase annual revenues for various types of businesses. In fact, a recent study showed that business owners who actively advertised on Yelp and managed their Yelp pages saw an average of $23,000 in annual revenues from Yelp.

 

How Can You Ask For Customer Reviews?
If you don’t ask, then you won’t receive. In other words, if you don’t actively encourage your existing customers to leave reviews, then they probably won’t do so on their own. With this in mind, the numbers are on your side; 70 percent of people are typically willing to leave online reviews simply because a business asked them to. This means that you must not only be proactive, but you must also make it easy for your customers to leave reviews.

Whenever you complete a residential or commercial plumbing job, ask your customer to leave either a Google, Yelp, or Facebook review. You can then remind them of the importance of their opinion with a follow-up email or on the paper invoice that you deliver at the end of the job. You can make it even easier for your customers to leave reviews with a step-by-step guide on your website, as well as the necessary links. Finally, if you send out a weekly or monthly newsletter, then don’t forget to include a call to action that asks for customer reviews. No matter how you choose to do it, make sure that you ask your customers for their reviews so that you can successfully grow your plumbing business.
