Why it’s called a “We Build It For You” contractor website
We build the whole thing.
Even better, we build it on an existing website building platform so it’s fast and affordable.
It doesn’t involve a single line of code, there won’t be weeks of planning to struggle through, and you won’t pay thousands of dollars for expensive web designers and developers (in fact it’s only a few hundred bucks).
In as little as 2 hours you can have a website that solves the problem your trade business has RIGHT NOW.
“Hold on, what problem do I have with my contractor website?”
You’d know the answer to that better than anyone.
No digital marketing strategy?
Zero quote requests?
Whatever problem you’re thinking of right now is hurting your revenue and keeping you in neutral when you want to be putting your foot down and speeding towards your growth goals.
But there’s good news, the problem you’re thinking of can be solved in one simple step – a new conversion-friendly contractor website.
The website dilemma every contractor has to overcome
Building a new website is a problem every tradesperson, home improvement business and contractor will be faced with at some point in their business. You know you need one, but then you’re faced with a choice:
Do you…build the website yourself using a website building platform? Do you…call an agency to build a custom website for you?
The problem with these two options is that they feel like a lose-lose.
Here’s why most contractors feel like they get the rough end of the stick when building a website
If you build your own trade website through a website builder you’ll be sacrificing plenty of your free time, and unless you’ve studied the latest conversion strategies and SEO tricks, there’s a good chance your new site will look good, but won’t bring in more leads or customers.
On the other hand, paying an agency to create your website can increase your chances of leads and customers, but it will set you back thousands of dollars – not to mention the weeks (or even months) some agencies take to show you any results. Or worse, some agencies don’t even know what they’re doing at all!
That’s a lose-lose situation you’d rather avoid.
The HUGE problem with most website building platforms
Building a home improvement website has become much easier in the last few years thanks to the explosion of website building platforms – think Wix, Squarespace and even WordPress.
Most of these platforms are designed for beginners, so you can sign up in a couple of minutes, pick from pre-existing themes related to your trade industry, add a few pictures and words and hit ‘publish’.
The focus of these website building platforms is to streamline the task of building a site, so you can literally publish a new website in an hour.
But the downside of such a simple process is that most people end up with simple websites. And simple websites don’t convert traffic into customers.
If you want your contractor website to be a digital business card that doesn’t generate leads or increase your conversion rate, this won’t bother you.
But if you want your new website to rank on Google, attract leads each week, and generate revenue, then a simple (no strategy website), is not the answer.
The solution? A ‘We Build It For You’ website.
“What is really a ‘We Build It For You’ contractor website?”
Our ‘We Build It For You’ websites help solve the problems every tradie faces when they need a new site.

And since we’ve got the tools and talent to get the job done fast (we’re a bunch of web design and developing pros), you can go from no online presence to an SEO-friendly contractor website in under 2 hours.

So while your competition signs up to the newest fad website builder and drags images around the page randomly, we build a custom site on a specific website builder that looks great and brings in new customers.
