Kitchen and bathroom remodels are major undertakings. The vast majority of people will only commit their hard-earned cash to someone they feel they can trust after they’ve checked them out on review sites. If you partner with us, you’ll be able to get the best contractor financing for customers. But how do you get good leads on customers who want to hire your skills? Here’s The Kitchen & Bath Remodeling Contractor’s Guide to Yelp and Other Review Sites.
Yelp and Other Review Sites are a Great Way to Get Leads
People use sites like Yelp, Angi®, Facebook and more to gauge trustworthiness. If you go there right now, you’re bound to run across a review that says something to the effect of “I read all the good reviews and decided to give them a call.” A kitchen remodeling contractor who does great work will get great reviews, and this can automatically lead to more work.
Why a Kitchen and Bath Remodeling Contractor Should Care About Reviews
It’s a really good idea for you to check in at all the review sites and register your business if possible. When you do that, you’ll be able to update information about your business that could be missing or wrong. More importantly, you’ll be able to respond to your customers. On the one hand, a simple “Thanks for the good review!” shows other potential customers that you are communicative.
On the other hand, if you get that dreaded bad review, you can address it in a polite, professional, timely manner for all the world to see, and leave a record of how you solved the problem for the customer. This helps to ensure that one bad apple doesn’t spoil the whole bunch. Instead, it will show your potential customers you are always ready and willing to improve both your business and your relationships with them.
Other Ways a Kitchen Remodeling Contractor Can Use Yelp and Other Review Sites
You can use your presence on the review sites themselves as a positive, but it doesn’t stop there. You can also migrate good reviews to your own site as testimonials for your business. Once you’ve built up a running of solid reviews on any site, you can encourage people to check them out to verify that you are the best choice for the job.
Review sites are a record of a home remodeling contractor’s history of work, and sites like Yelp are providing that record openly. It’s as easy to access for you as it is for the general public. This is an advantage for you if you are willing to seize the opportunity.
