Trades Marketing Options

There a many ways that trades companies can market their business. 

Marketing has its origins in word or mouth and signage. These still work today but it is difficult to reach many people using just word or mouth and signage. 

Radio when it first became popular was the best place to market your business as that was where people’s attention was and it was easy and cost effective to reach your customers. 

Then when television became popular that became the place to advertise.

Today, radio and television have become saturated and expensive and the reach (number of people that get your message) is reduced. Furthermore, it is not a very targeted way to reach your target customers, most people that hear or see your message are not interested in your services.

Digital Marketing for Trades

In the 21st Century (now) digital marketing is the most cost effective marketing that a trades services company can do. 

More and more customers are reaching for their phone and typing into a search engine the trades service that they need. This means that if they are not finding you online they are finding your competitors. Not only that but these people are actively looking for your service. 

What is better than getting customers that are looking for the services that you offer? This is a much better way than other forms of marketing and advertising like radio or TV where your message is interrupting what they want to be doing to tell them about something that they probably don’t need right now. 

Don’t be that annoying business that pushes your message to people that don’t want it. Be that guy that helps people get the service they want when they want it!
