How can Checkatrade help your business?
We spoke to Chris from Property Maintenance and Repairs to get his feedback on his experience as a member so far.
“I have struggled with my advertising in the past, trying to get more customers in the diary. I have used alternative competing platforms to Checkatrade before and not had much luck, so I wasn’t sure what to expect… but I loved the look of Checkatrade. The branding is so distinctive and they are a household name, so I signed up to see how things went.
Signing up was easy. Everybody I spoke to during the process was very helpful and helped me to ensure that things went smoothly. The vetting process was quick and simple and the most difficulty I had was with knowing what to put on my page to help make myself stand out!
Since joining Checkatrade, I experienced a significant increase in calls. One of my favourite things about the platform is that I can tell immediately whether a call has come in via Checkatrade or through one of my other advertising methods, thanks to the call tracking numbers they use so that I can get a clear idea of whether or not I am receiving much value for money from my Checkatrade membership.
Although I am yet to explore it in any detail, I also love the idea of having the members area where fellow tradespeople can post and discuss things within a community. This will be an excellent place to discuss any work, ask questions or alert other tradespeople to issues in the area. On the whole, my experience so far is a positive one and I would recommend using Checkatrade for your business”.
