1. The computer in your pocket
It’s a fact a smart phone is now a computer in a tradesman’s pocket and consumers are increasingly calling for business to be done via their smart phones and mobile devices, giving them the opportunity to reach tradesmen like you directly while old fashioned platforms such as Yell and Thomson decline as texting has become the norm. Try Textatradesman.com on your mobile now and let your fingers do the talking.
We are already assisting builders, handymen, locksmiths, roofers, and more with our unique mobile solution. Tradesmen are using our database to find other trades when their own sub-contractors maybe busy or their customers need a pacific service they don’t offer.This makes it easy for tradesmen like you to gain membership in our expanding trade circle with a free profile of your business.
Finding and hiring trusted tradesmen online is far more difficult than it should be as most sites are complicated and not user-friendly with excessive fees that they charge to tradesmen who work in this industry. We are in the industry and we bring a far superior and affordable offering to the market place, a 50p per day membership backed up with our piece of mind workmanship guarantee for your customers.
2. Smart phone and mobile devices
“Mobile is eating the world”. Text is the latest buzzy expression and any graph showing recent year’s growth in smart mobile devices is breath-taking. In 2014 we set out to become the market leaders in mobile technology for tradesmen. Hundreds of hours have been spent by our IT team optimising our sites ensuring they display perfectly on all devices as well as enabling them to be found on major search engines.
We believe that the biggest single mobile B2B opportunity lies in the field trade world due to its inherently mobile nature. We intend to bring on board the best in the field service industry to become part of textatradesman and assist them to grow their business using our unique mobile technology and support. Textatradesman is aimed at sole traders and small businesses who are mostly in the field at customers’ premises and working from vans and small offices who often struggle to keep up with the mobile internet side of their business.

4. The Texta Concept
Founder of Handyman.co.uk Andy Morrison has set out to rectify the bad reputation the trade has on the internet due to so called “rogue traders”. by amalgamating top tradesmen in one place with a simple way for customers to reach them directly. His IT team have built over 25 niche smartphone websites. Some ask why a 25 sites? Because this enables the customer’s search to be defined, also 25 urls bring more search results than just one url. We have it covered @ Textatradesman.co.uk Textatrader.co.uk/ Textatrade.co.uk/
Textatradesman.com was created when Andy realised the phrase “text” is used by 60% of the population, and consumer’s mostley search for individual trades on google, so Andy chose to bring the word ‘text’ into a search term to find tradesman, i.e textaplumber.co.uk textaplaster.co.uk textatiler.co.uk.“Texta is memorable; Plumber is memorable so Textaplumber.co.uk is unforgettable.” Andy’s motto is you can have the best website in the world, but it needs to say what it does on the tin and be easy to remember.
5. Finding your business online
Our search engine optimisation ensures customers will find your business. We’ve established key positions on the internet with a specific focus on the impact of text messaging to receive work. You and your business could be on the other side of that next text in any given territory with only 2 other tradesmen, at a low cost of just 50p a day.
At textatradesman.com you will only ever find your business with 2 others trades on any listing thus avoiding quoting wars and any upset to the customer. When any 3 listings are taken on a search then that membership area is closed to any new members.Customers turn to tradesmen they can trust. Being part of Textatradesman.com will give you that credibility and combined with the workmanship guarantee. Your services will be mostly used in preference to any competitors as we like to be known as the ‘John Lewis’ of the building trade.
