Life as a contractor can be lucrative, but it is always hard work. For many contractors, advertizing proves a challenge- many are highly skilled individuals in their field but do not enjoy the same expertize in marketing strategy. Contractor-Place has created an online space for people to find contractors from all over the US, and has proved a successful way for contractors to generate interest. Now, Contractor Place has a featured contractor section on the homepage that allows contractors to be one of the first seen by visitors to the site.
The featured contractors gallery features high quality images, a contractor title and a text summary that comes replete with a ‘read more’ button that will take potential customers directly to their contractor profile page without the need for customers to search through thousands of possible listings.
The General Contractor listings can also be broken down by category so that users can search only for what they are looking for depending on their needs. To encourage new businesses, the site also has a ‘Recently Added Listings’ feature so that those who have listed for the first time also get free time on the homepage which drastically increases their exposure.
A spokesperson for Contractor Place explained, “Each of the contractors who are featured in the gallery experience equal ‘airtime’ thanks to our scrolling system, and the newest featured contractors are put at the front of the queue to gain maximum exposure for the maximum length of time. These multimedia briefs can then be clicked upon to be expanded, allowing users to find out more about the contractor and the work they do to decide whether or not to hire them. Doing so direct from the front page rather than in thousands of listings is a surefire way to land more business.”
