It may be the case that your small contracting business is steadily busy right now. Most businesses are at this time of the year. Summer brings in the good weather, which enables us to work outside more often. If a business is booming now why should I get a website?

Winter is coming

Like it or not, the winter will be here before we all know it. With the long winter months brings less work for professionals who count on the warmer summer to get the bulk of their work. When winter hits things like Interior jobs, snow shoveling and snow plowing are the things most businesses do to keep busy. Finding the clients who need these services, however, can be tough. A website gives you leverage over the companies who do not have one by having the ability to be found through the search engines. Without a website, chances are that a business will not show up in a Google search result.

Showcase your talents

A website does more than help get new clients. It is a great place to boost your portfolio. Having the ability to show off your skills by posting completed projects shows that you not only finish a job when you take one, but you finish a job right.

 

Brag with testimonials

Testimonials these days are as important to a business as the quality of work. People have become so used to seeing others positive comments on a product or service that they will not even consider a company without a few customer opinions. Showcasing a clients opinion of you in their own words really convinces people that you are the service that they want.

Have a home base

A website serves s the digital home base of operations for a business. Sure you should have a Facebook profile, a Youtube account, and a Linkedin profile. Not having a place to link all of these accounts and give your customers a place to land on can hurt your chances of landing new clients. Posting how to’s, advice and videos on your home base shows that you know what it is you are talking about.
