Building QMBA Relationships

Websites and Great Online Marketing for Local Builders

It all starts with the foundations.

Developing an effective online presence for business is a lot like building a house, if the foundations are not right you could be buying a whole lot of trouble down the track. Getting what appears on a website to present well like text, images and ‘Contact us’ forms working professionally for your contract business seems simple, but if it was as easy as that, everyone would build homes right?

Once you build the website, there’s lots to consider as well… How easy is it to find your business online and how many competitors do you have all seeking the attention of your prospective customers?

Recently Catalyst Directions – Wide Reach Social Media was happy to formalise a collaborative arrangement to support members of QMBA (Queensland Master Builders) Wide Bay when it comes to building, improving and growing their online presence over the next 12 months (2020 – 2021).

This connection will provide builders, contractors and support services across the Wide Bay, Burnett and Central Queensland regions, a point of contact that will assist members to grow and build their presence online. This presence will be built through website development, website maintenance and updates/upgrades, online functionality improvements and being found online through effective maximisation of your websites search capacity via Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

Once your company is presenting professionally online, choosing pay per click and remarketing tactics through products such as Google Ads is a must when it comes to remaining at the forefront in what is a very competitive marketplace.

Building, renovating, electrical, plumbing, landscaping, conveyancing and the list goes on..
There’s a big story that goes into building a home and an even bigger one when it comes to making that house a home.

Even when the website is built, the SEO is well locked down and the Google Ads are getting your construction or contracting company plenty of online visibility.. There’s much more that can and should be done to maximize your presence online.
