Reasons to get a website for tradesman

'Wait a minute.. I don't need a website - I am a tradesman'

Tradesmen tend to run lean operations and often only service a small local area and a website can be seen as a luxury.

Here are 10 reasons to think again and why a website is integral to a successful business, not matter how big or small.

The number one most visited website in the UK is Google

Google is the most visited website in the UK – and why do people visit Google?  To ask questions, to find restaurants, read the news –  but also to find local tradesman. If you don’t have a website, chances are you won’t be in Google. If your business in not in the search results – you are losing out.

Every business in any industry needs a website

Local Newspaper Ads, and Yellow Pages (remember them!) used to generate calls. Those days are  long gone. People don’t have time and they quickest way to find someone is to search on Google

List in a Directory?

Checkatrade, Rated People, and similar websites are great for getting your name out there…but are they building their business and brand or building yours?  

Few people search on directories and if they do they remember ‘Checkatrade’ when they should be remembering your business when they refer you friends and family.

You are your own brand
Trust a Tradesman

Are you trustworthy?

Everyone has a story about a ‘rogue trader’ or ‘dodgy builder’ Having a professional website that is in your name and registered to you lends credibility and trustworthiness to your business.

How many vans have you seen with free ‘gmail’ or ‘hotmail’ account which scream – ‘cowboys’.


As a business owner, you need to attract new customers and keep existing ones coming back.

New customers will want to ‘check you out’ and most will search for your website to reassure them that you are a respectable and trustworthy business.

Reviews for tradesmen website


There are reviews everywhere and many people nowadays just don’t believe them

Provide confidence to potential customers by showing them ‘work done’ or ‘ photo gallery’ with real jobs that showcase your skills.

Are you available? 24/7?

It’s a cliche but maybe also true – that everyone has struggled to find a joiner or builder or plumber.

You would be surprised how many tradesmen are simply ‘not available’ as they are busy but have no means to accept enquiries especially after hours.  If you are closed and your only means of contact is a phone – many people will go elsewhere.  Let them leave an email or chat option or whatsapp message rather than just go to another tradesman.  Many people look for a tradesmen at night when they have time – let them leave messages ni whatever format is easiest for them.
