Tradies are often the grinders, using their experience and expertise on the job. However, if you’re running a trade business, you need to do networking and marketing. Competition is tough in the trade services market and it may be difficult to stand out among other local tradies but effective marketing for tradies can be a mix of real world and online.
As a tradesman, you have the tools to offer service to respond to people’s needs but you need to build a sustainable and thriving business. Networking is a good way to generate leads for businesses and to learn from other business owners.
Tradies Accountants, Bookkeepers, Mortgage Brokers
Join local business groups and get free word of mouth promotion. Local business owners such as mortgage brokers, accountants and bookkeepers who use your services will recommend you to their clients and contacts. Other tradies with skills in other trades will likely refer you to their customers as well.
Another powerful marketing tool is a referral from your existing customer. People will trust someone they already know. If you’re doing a great job for your customers, ask them to think of you when family and friends need your service. You can also ask regular clients to refer you to others for a special offer or rebate. Build a relationship with your customers and they might just give you new jobs.
Everyone is on social media and there’s absolutely potential market in there. You can target more people in your area quickly and less expensively. There are professional platforms like LinkedIn and Facebook groups in your area. If you get your name to be recognised, you might just get new leads.
