Marketing For Plumbers and Plumbing Contractors
Marketing is the lifeblood of your business. Without marketing there can be no prospects, no appointments and no projects. Marketing is what makes the register ring. In order to be truly successful in the plumbing business, you must be a marketing expert. You can be average at everything else, but if you use marketing, you will make a ton of money.
The sad truth is that 90% of plumbers do not understand basic plumber marketing concepts. The average plumber looks at what others in the industry are doing, and copies it. That would work if the items copied were successful. But often times, the plumber marketing tools copied do not work.
So how do you avoid this trap?
Use proper plumber marketing tactics. And the best ones are the most basic. One trick is to get ideas from other industries. What works elsewhere usually will work for plumbers marketing as well.
Another trick is to test every plumber marketing tool you use. Test small to see if the tool actually works, then track your results. And keep tracking continuously.

Finding Ways To Get More Reviews Through Your Well Managed Plumber Marketing
If you’re in the market for a new phone, do you simply grab anyone off the shelf and blindly pay for it? Of course not! That’s how you could wind up with an expensive product that you’re not 100 percent satisfied with.
Likewise, your customers don’t want to fork over the money for plumbing services that could be terrible for all they know. They want first-hand accounts that detail the kind of plumbing work they can expect from your company. And with customer reviews, potential customers can read first-hand accounts of your work so that they can decide whether you are the company for them.
And with a strong online presence, it’s easier than ever to get reviews out there! It used to be that you might have to rely strictly on word-of-mouth for customers to hear from their friends and acquaintances what quality work they can expect from you. But nowadays, all it takes is a Google search for anyone anywhere to find a review of your work.
With a website created by our organization, you will receive — among many other great things — a “testimonials” page that will clearly present all of your customers’ reviews. As we optimize your site so that it has a greater presence on Google, customers will more easily be able to find both you AND your testimonials page. This design allows customers to find a bevy of reviews with one click, a feature which helps them to determine that your plumbing company is the best one for them.
Keeping Up With Plumber Marketing Trends & Changes
There’s a reason that phone books are going out of style as the top choice for advertising plumbing companies. A printed phone book simply can’t keep up with the times as immediately as a digital medium is able to.
And customers’ needs change quickly. Indeed, the plumbing needs that someone has can even change with the season. During the summertime, someone might be in the market for sprinklers, but in the winter, they might be looking to have their pipes replaced after the intense cold caused them to burst. And their needs will continue to change throughout the year with every season — faster than an outdated print medium can keep pace with.
That’s why it’s important to have a strong online presence. The amazing thing about the Internet is that it’s immediate. If you want to add a piece of information, you can add it at the click of a button. If you want to remove a piece of information that has become irrelevant, you can perform that task just as immediately. You can change the very second your customers’ needs do, keeping pace with them and keeping yourself in the lead within your industry.
Another benefit you can enjoy with our online plumber marketing is that you don’t have to worry about handling these changes yourself. Just contact our team as you need information updated or changed, and we can update your website in a flash. Your customers want a plumbing expert who can provide them with the services they need when they need them. They don’t have the time to wait for the next edition of the phone book to see whether you can meet their plumbing needs as they change throughout the year.
Don’t live in the Stone Age of advertisement. Drop the phone book, and get digital with a web presence that’ll keep you at the front when change happens. And to keep up with this change, it’s important to . . .
