New Customers?

Hi everyone, from sunny Norfolk
I've noticed more and more as time goes by, that I'm getting as many enquiries via the website as I am from leaflets through doors, etc. A sign of the times, I guess. I know I personally turn to google when I'm looking for something local. I'm certainly not complaining; sitting at a computer is considerably less work than walking the streets, lol.
What does everyone else do for a website? Custom-written, or a fill-in-the-blanks freebie site? I'm almost finished working on the back end of mine, which manages my customer list and work schedule for me (finally).


Traditional Window Cleaners in Diss, Norfolk and Suffolk since 1998.

Custom written. If you use a fill in the blanks type website people will know and it usually looks a little less professional if you're looking into the commercial market.

You get what you pay for IMO. That's what I tell people on all my bids too. Do you want the luxury car or the dodge neon?

Definitely get a custom website. It is worth its weight in gold. Also don't neglect internet marketing which is essential nowadays.

Internet marketing isn't that big of a deal for our industry. You'd be biting more than you can chew if you think about it too much. Just get the cheapest professional looking website you can. There is no need to go fancy.

This may seem a stretch for some? The truth is, that using templates can and often lead to a "Duplicate Content" issues with Google and your SEO. Go ahead and Google "Duplicate Content SEO".

Also, Google has and uses the overall percentages of "Duplicate Content" used on your website in it's ranking calculations. FACT

Then there is also the Google Algorithm which looks for "PATTERNS", really.

Did you know that you can upload a small percentage of your profile pic, (say 25%) and Google will locate this pic or similar anywhere on the Internet and provide you with the search results?

The very best SEO tool is "Google Guidelines"...

Hope this helps.
