There are many small businesses out there today that either do not see the real value of owning and operating a website or simply just have not really looked into it enough. In today’s post, we go over the top 3 Reasons Every Contractor Should Have A Website and maintain a website for their businesses.

 

#3. great portfolios

 

Many underestimate the power if visual appealing pictures. Taking before and after shots of projects is something that I ask all of my clients to do. Pictures can easily be uploaded to a website and added to a little story or other content can really stand out. Most easily forget about the siding job they did last spring, or that shed that they built for their cousin 5 years ago. Pictures made into a portfolio page are the best way to showcase a certain set of skills.
How better to prove your business is the best for a prospected job than showing off what you have already done?

 

#2. A digital business card.

 

Having a home base for all of your contact info, hours of operation, and the areas that you serve is vital to getting the perfect client. A contact page with a form that sends you an email when a client fills it out is the new kind of voicemail. Also being able to publish your different phone numbers, mailing, and physical addresses, and linking to your other online profiles like Facebook is imperative. Seamlessly integrating all of this information into a websites footer, or bottom section is not only professional looking but is super useful.

Marketing today is very difficult without having a website to link everything together.
