In today’s digital world, every trade and construction business must have an online presence.

At the very least, you should be showing off that portfolio of brilliant work you’ve been keeping hostage on your phone.

But it’s complicated, right?

You might not have the technical skills to develop a website.

Or you might be stressed about having to write engaging content about your business.

Maybe you’re just too time poor to tick this job off your To Do List.

That’s why Yik Yak Creative and Keystone Writing Solutions has joined forces to offer complete websites for tradies and other businesses in the construction industry.

Why Tradies Need Websites

 A lot of trade and construction related businesses put all their time and energy into picking up business from Facebook or Instagram.

And it’s a valid form of advertising and getting your name out there.

But it’s dangerous to put all your eggs in one basket.

Why?

Because these platforms can take down your page at any time they like.

And because more and more people are learning that business pages on social media are not secure. They can be hacked and taken over by hostile parties, and you can lose everything overnight.

Also, if you think about it from a customer’s perspective, there are a lot of horror stories about dodgy trades. Customers are getting more cynical and more savvy. They want to be sure that you’re a legitimate business. They’ll search the web for reviews and go looking for your website.

A website designed and written by us gives you this sense of legitimacy and credibility. We’ll ensure your website makes a great first impression. And that it helps customers to trust you and have faith that you’re a bona fide business.

Having a website also increases the chance of people finding you on Google and contacting your business. This can only mean good things for your bottom line.

 

THE PROOF IS IN THE PORTFOLIO

Anyone can claim that they’re amazing at what they do but how do you know it’s true?

              Easy.

              Here’s a sample of some of the trades and construction websites we’ve created together.

NKJ PLUMBING
NORTH SHORE, SYDNEY PLUMBER
The website created for NKJ Plumbing really shows that we’re not your typical website designer and copywriter.

From a design perspective our tradie websites are cleaner, less cluttered, more consistent, more sophisticated, easier to navigate and above all else demonstrate how professional our clients are.

SEO (search engine optimisation) copywriting was prepared for the plumbing business to give the brand an approachable, conversational tone of voice as well as capture Google’s attention to rank the new website. SEO is key to marketing established local businesses.

The result?

An impactful website that drives traffic to NKJ Plumbing and makes them stand out from the crowd.

    BORG PROJECTS
    SYDNEY SHOPFITTER & JOINER
    When Borg Projects, a high end commercial and residential trades industry player, approached us, we knew their brand needed to be a little bit special, just like their projects. So, we approached the whole job with a hint of luxury in mind. Using a gold and black colour palette, the branding and website is classy yet understated.

    On brand copywriting was produced for the website that reinforced the sophistication of the company. We sat and talked with business owners, Sarah and Nick Borg, and gained a thorough understanding of what they do differently to elevate their brand.

    We’ve since added many blog posts and descriptive project summaries for this ambitious company.

    On top of that, when the couple developed sister business Ink Joinery, we were the only people they wanted to work with.

    And there’s no greater compliment than repeat business.

    We’ve helped this business to grow, and we’ve adored watching them go from strength to strength.

      L DALY AND SONS PTY LTD
      ELECTRICIAN, INNER WEST SYDNEY
      Sarah Daly, who is a member of the highly successful Tradie Wives Facebook group, approached us when she became overwhelmed by everything she had on her plate. Managing all the administration for the electrical company, and looking after her young children, proved to be more than enough of a challenge for her.

      So, when it came to their website, she knew she was too time poor to take the project on herself.

      Cue the dynamic duo Miriam and Corinne.

      From a design perspective, the website was created to appeal to property owners. Relatable images and a touch of animation were used to capture the attention of their potential clients. We worked with the existing logo to create a fresh and clean website.

      There was a lot of copy written for this site, purely because L Daly and Sons had so many offerings. Describing each service gives the website extra SEO juice and reassures clients that L Daly and Sons offer the services they require.

      It was made clear from the beginning that safety was paramount in this tradie’s business and the content was written to highlight this and bolster clients’ confidence in the company.

      The clients were thrilled with the final product, leaving us sitting on Cloud 9.

        We delivered:

        ✓ SEO Copywriting

        ✓ Keyword Research

        ✓ Website design

        ✓ Technical SEO

        ✓ Web Hosting

        ✓ SSL Security Certificate

        VIBE POOLS
        POOL BUILDER, HILLS DISTRICT, SYDNEY
        Vibe Pools gets our award for forward thinking.

        Why?

        Because since Covid hit, swimming pools have been high on the want list for property owners. Pool businesses are booking out upwards of 6 months in advance.

        So why invest in marketing your business when work is rolling in the doors?

        Because business won’t be abundant forever. And smart businesses always have their eye on the future.

        Vibe Pools engaged us to create a website that showed off their projects. Almost an online portfolio of their work.

        The design for this client’s website is clean, crisp, and inviting.

        Vibe Pools is like a lot of trade businesses, it provides its services in specific locations. We provide local SEO services which will help you to rank on Google’s list for your local area. This is a mix of using the right words in the right places and some technical “behind the scenes” work.

        If you’re a location-based business, we also recommend setting up your Google My Business listing. This combined with an optimised website will help potential customers to find you on Google Maps. The best part? It’s completely free and a golden opportunity to get noticed ahead of your local competition.

        As far as written content is concerned, we took a light approach. We wanted the images of the gorgeous pools to be play the leading role on this website. And we didn’t want them to get lost in a sea of text.

          We delivered:

          ✓ Succinct Copywriting

          ✓ Website Design

          ✓ Web Hosting

          ✓ SSL Security Certificate

          Website Packages

          We don’t like to hem you in too tightly to pre-defined packages that might not suit your needs.

          We prefer to customise our packages to suit your business and achieve your goals.

          But we know you want some insight into what our services might cost.

          So, let’s look at an example.

          If you’re looking for a 4-page website, our combined costs are typically approximately $3,000. That includes a beautifully designed, bespoke website and the written content to fill those scary empty pages. There are a range of options that you can choose to add or omit so that the website suits your needs.

          We’d love to put together a package for your consideration. And don’t worry, we’re both extremely approachable and won’t relentlessly pursue you or use high pressure sales practices to win your business.
