Contractors that are looking to increase their business through the most advanced online advertising are looking in the right place. But before you get carried away with the idea of online marketing, there are a few things to remember:
- As a contractor, your business is in the real world, so the best thing for you to do, on a daily basis, is to perform the best quality work that you can. In your limited geographic area, the best referrals that you’re going to get will come from word of mouth.
- Excellent web advertising and website won’t replace the customer service that you provide on a daily basis. Make no mistake, your behavior on the job site will catch up to you, even in the online world. Review sites for businesses let customers provide you instant feedback that others will see. In a sense, this is some of the best advertising you can get, since people tend to trust these sites to vet a service. Perform on the ground and the rewards will extend into the virtual world.
