Contractor Websites — Contractor Marketing — SEO for Contractors
We specialize in contractor marketing on the Internet and building contractor websites. Most contractors say that their biggest problem is getting a steady stream of customer calls and those much needed contractor leads. In today’s world, this requires Internet Marketing — getting customers to your contractor website and getting them to call. This may not be as true if you’re in a small town. But in urban areas, your competitors are increasingly moving onto the Internet and searching for websites for contractors because that’s where the action is. The most recent survey available (July 2008) found that nationwide, only 30% of customers relied on Yellow Pages to find contractors, whereas 60% relied on the Internet to locate electricians, plumbers, HVAC, and other kinds of contractors. This statistic in favor of Internet marketing for contractors has only become more lopsided in recent years.
HappyContractor was started by Kim Hopkins, who owns an electrical contracting company in Los Angeles that wanted more customers. In 1996, Kim went onto the Internet to find customers. He had started by looking for a company that specialized in Internet marketing for contractors. At the time, the Internet was only a few years old and no such companies existed. So, he built his own contractor website. Since then, he’s been on a mission to learn everything there is to know about contractor marketing on the Internet — both Pay-Per-Click and Search Engine Optimization. And it’s worked — the website of The Electric Connection usually ranks Number 1 on the search engines (just below the three Pay-Per-Click ads at the top of the page). The company is now a 25-person electrical contracting company.
Contractor marketing on the Internet requires the knowledge and skills of two fields — contracting and Internet marketing. There are a number of companies out there that offer to build websites for contractors, manage AdWords campaigns, or do SEO for contractors. However, do they know what customers look for in a contractor website? Do they know the customer “Go Buttons” that should appear on websites for contractors? Do they know how SEO for contractors differs from that of other small businesses? The staff at HappyContractor does. They made the website of The Electric Connection Number 1 in Los Angeles and then went on to do the same for contractors across the country. Our clients in the Number 1 spot for their locality include plumbers, HVAC contractors, electricians, and general contractors.
Websites for Contractors
Check out the HappyContractor sample websites for contractors in your trade. Our contractor websites include a number of informative articles. This is helpful to customers, but also is important to boost a website’s rankings on search engines. Search engines like Google rank websites, in part, on whether they provide useful information. This is in their interest, as the more useful information they provide to searchers, the more people will use the search engine.
Getting your website to the top of the search engines is the key to customers being able to find it and getting more contractor leads. But once customers find your website, will they call? Our staff at HappyContractor design customer appeal and customer hot buttons into your contractor website so that your customers will call. Our first website, for The Electric Connection in Los Angeles, is the major source of new customer calls for the company. It generates over $500,000 a year in new electrical business. You can check customer reviews for how our websites work for plumbers, HVAC contractors, electricians, and general contractors across the country.

Here's our most recent Contractor Blog post:
If you are making your dreams of owning your own business a reality, you probably have some kind of checklist you are following. There are a lot of big and small details that go into launching a contracting business and every one is important. What many people forget in those early days of opening their business is their online presence. It may not seem like something that is all that important, but it is. In today’s world, your business needs to be represented online so customers can find you easier. Contractor websites are the way to get your business seen and talked about with very little marketing. Leaving the job to the professionals at Happy Contractor will take that job off your plate and allow you to focus on the other many important duties.
One of the key components of a good website is getting it seen in the searches. Contractor SEO services are the way to make this happen. SEO requires a little research and knowledge about search engines, which is probably not something you want to spend a lot of time on when you have other things to do. Hiring a professional team to research those keywords and have them placed in just the right place is the key to getting your business to the top.
Websites for contractors are the perfect way to advertise what your business does and who you are as a business owner. It gives you the chance to show off a bit and that is an excellent way to impress potential customers. An online presence will allow customers to find out everything they need to know about your contracting business and then they can pick up the phone and give you a call. Call Happy Contractor and get your website started so you can reap the rewards.

This is one of the biggest benefits to having contractor SEO services provided by an experienced team of experts like those at Happy Contractor.
SEO is a 3-letter word that can make a lot of people cringe. If you are not familiar with search engines and the lengthy list of rules that are used to establish page ranking in a search, don’t worry. Most people are not. It is a little complicated and it is always evolving. Contractor websites utilized certain words and phrases to help get the page to the top of searches. What does this mean for you? It means you need experts putting together your business website so that it looks good and is pulling in business for you.
Websites for contractors need to say a lot, but with the right words and phrases. Your business needs to be advertised, explained and promoted all in one space. That requires some knowledge about what appeals to consumers as well as the technical know-how about creating such pages as well as clickable links and so on. This is a lot to take in for anybody who isn’t trained in website development. Don’t try to take it on yourself. Give Happy Contractor a call and let them help you get your business on the internet map.
