Frequently Asked Questions

By using our online marketing knowledge and experience we help your business get found online by potential customers looking for what you do.

We help to bring the work to you! We believe online marketing is more than just "something you need" as a tradie. By using our expansive knowledge, skills and experience in marketing, design and digital advertising, we can help your business to grow, gain visibility, and get found online by potential customers looking for what you do.

For more information about the nitty gritty of what we do, including SEO, Google Analytics and more, head over here.

Contact us to get started. All it takes is a quick conversation so we can find out more about who you are and what you do. That’s your job done! We’ll handle the rest and get you started on your free trial month.

Next to nothing! Our sole purpose is to help you and your business to realise your full potential, and we do that by driving quality traffic to the website we setup - which will be managed by us.

We just need to have a chat with you about your name, services and contact information. We’ll update the site to cater to your business, and it will be ready for launch before you can say Jack Robinson. Then you need only tell us if any of that information changes in the future.

At this stage, we are most equipped to assist builders, plumbers, electricians, painters, and general handyman. However, we are also able to establish websites for other trades, and are expanding our services to include landscapers, gardeners, mechanics, and more.

We are not restricted by size - we can help any local trade business, from a single operator to a large team. The only restriction is that we can only assist one business per trade per location (for example, if we are working with a plumber in Bondi, we cannot help another plumber in Bondi, but our services will still be open to Bondi builders, electricians and so forth).

Not sure if your trade will be covered? Contact us Let us know what you do — and chances are we will be able to help you.

Connected Tradies aims to get you found online and help you maximise your business’s potential. We put all our skills and tools in place to ensure your business benefits from increased traffic and online exposure - and stays ahead of the competition. That means we do not help your competitors.

These days, every business has, or should have, an online presence. It is a core part of your advertising and, in our rapidly accelerating digital world, far exceeds standard newspaper or phone book adverts. Your customers will expect you to have a website. Most people are connected constantly, with laptops in their homes and mobiles in their pockets - and it is very likely that when they’re looking for what you do, they’ll use Google to do it.

Having a website, like it or not, makes you more credible than a tradie without a website. Your digital identity is key in ensuring you make a mark in your industry, and Connected Tradies has the solution to do it! Our sites look professional, draw traffic, convert visitors to potential customers, and are maintained by our team of experts.

A good website will present your business as modern and connected. Make sure yours is a great one!

There are many ways to advertise, from newspaper ads to phone books to radio announcements to leaflets in mailboxes. But research has shown that approximately 82% of people in need of a local service person will opt for a Google search to find them.

Local online search is more powerful than traditional paper advertising. When your potential customers look for you online, you need an online presence to point them in your direction.

That’s great - you obviously know how important online marketing is for your business. But there’s no reason not to invest in Connected Tradies!

Websites are complex and require ongoing attention, meaning that a self-managed site can be a massive drain on your time and patience. But a Connected Tradies website is designed, maintained and updated by a team of experts who stay on top of trends and understand how to maximise traffic, increase your online visibility, and keep you high on Google search results.

If it doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work for us. We’ll do everything we can to get the best online results in town for your business. And with us handling the tech, you have more time to focus on your hard work.

Websites are complex and require ongoing attention to see results. We upgrade the look, provide the technology and make sure the website is working. If it doesn't work for you, then it doesn't work for us. It is a win win, we help you find more work. We do everything needed to get the result so you can get on with what you do best.

The beauty of a Connected Tradies plan is that there are no time restrictions, commitments or deadlines. You can sign up with us at any time, receive your first month for free, then commence with the plan that’s right for your business.

Our plans are paid monthly at fixed amounts; that means there are no surprises. There are no minimum time or cost commitments. We make it simple to start - and stop - your plan at any time.

Cancelling your plan is an easy process. Contact us and we’ll take care of everything.

No, there is no setup fee. For the first month, you will receive our services absolutely FREE! After that, the selected plan for your business will commence with fixed monthly payments.

We have different plans to suit different businesses, budgets and locations. The cost of each plan is dictated by the services involved, which generally cater to suit little towns, big towns, little cities, big cities, and metro areas. So for instance, the Metro Package will be best equipped to help a business in a highly populated area with a very strong competitive market.

We can help you decide which plan is right for you — and remember, you can upgrade or downgrade your plan at any time. See more here.

Payments are by credit card only. The payment is deducted automatically on the first day of the month. Each plan has a fixed cost, so you will always know exactly what you’re paying.
