It would be nice if you could move from one contractor job to the next without a break. The occasional overlap and double jobs are even better. However, there may come a time when you are experiencing a slump. Contracting is a seasonal business and you need to bolster your business to make sure you can whether those slow times. Here’s what you can do to bring in more clients:
Improve Your Website
The first impression a client is going to get of your work will be from your website. That is why you want yours to look as sleek and professional as possible. It’s a smart investment to go to an experienced designer and tell them exactly what you want and let them build it. You should also have the capability to be able to update your website and keep it fresh. That is vitally important when it comes to adding photos of your work.
Promote On Social Media
Once you set up a Facebook and twitter account, it doesn’t take much to promote your business. You can provide updates about current jobs with photos (with the owner’s permission). You should also engage your followers by asking questions like what kind of improvements they like to make it their house. The idea is to have them think of you as the best contractor in Seattle. You can only get there if you let them know!
Ask For Reviews
A potential client is going to look for your reviews. That should be a feature on your website but it’s not the only place clients might be posting. If you have made a happy client, then you should ask them to post a review on Yelp for one of the other many online interview sites. Those five stars can really add up.
Reach Out To Other Contractors
