What’s the Best Internet Strategy for Plumbers?
There are a lot of different ways to try to get plumbing business on the internet. Angie’s List and Home Advisor are two of the biggest websites by volume of business. But, these are companies that require you to bid for work. Pay-per-click seems to be the most popular why for plumbers to advertise online. But, the response for PPC is only about 2%. PPC is fairly inexpensive, so that seems to be the main reason plumbers gravitate toward it. Internet strategy for plumbers also includes hiring an SEO company.
SEO companies vary in their business scope. Some charge $100-200 per month to basically give you a presence on the web. Perhaps they fill out your Google My Business page, post some photos and keep these updated every month. We don’t know exactly what they do for that price, but beware of SEO low-ballers. They don’t get you much of anything in terms of ROI. Perhaps these low-ball SEO companies work for plumbing companies, who just want to say they are doing something online.
