The South Peninsula Tradesmen Directory is an Online directory for tradesmen like Plumbers, Painters, Electricians, Garden Services and Landscapers in the South Peninsula which includes the areas of Constantia, Tokai, Muizenberg, Kalk Bay, Glen Cairn,Simonstown, Fish Hoek, Sunvalley, Noordhoek and Kommetjie. We also include Tradesmen from Bergvliet and Plumstead servicing the deep south.
We have taken a look at certain industries where business owners perform very similar functions and it becomes a very difficult and tedious task for tradesmen to develop and maintain their own website.We now are able to offer an alternative or supplementary advertising opportunity to having your own website. (Read more about your own website vs a directory listing on our blog.)
The webmasters of this website is Buddy Web Design.
What guarantees do we get that we will actually benefit from registering with the South Peninsula Tradesmen Directory?
The short answer is increase your business and clientele base by:
The website is run and maintained by local web designers, Buddy Web Design, who are experts in the field of SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). (Download the free SEO Book or if you do not have enough time the Short Marketing Guide to marketing your website).
We would like all our clients to renew their membership annually. In most cases you will only require 1-3 new clients to get a return on your annual subscriptions fees. Naturally we will aim that our clients get far more enquiries from their listing.
You will already find the South Peninsula Tradesmen Directory on page 1 of Google for certain search terms. We monitor these results on a weekly basis and improve where we can in order to achieve higher rankings on search engines. The fact that we already provide a minimal free listing means we offer a comprehensive directory for the South Peninsula has direct benefits for search results. When people search for the internet they want answers. We provide those answers. Search Engines like that.
Our Gold and Platinum listings include assistance with registering with Google My Business if your business is not yet registered on this platform. Listing with Google My Business in itself could give you a return above your annual subscription fee.
The partners of Buddy Web Design are also very active on Facebook. People often enquire about Tradesmen on local Facebook groups. While you are out in the field doing the hard work we provide those people with your names and contact details and in doing so promote the directory in general. See an example of such Facebook marketing here...
The directory will also be marketed at selected Hardware-, Electrical- and Plumbing supply stores in order to create a greater awareness of the directory as well as on local community notice boards. Eventually we will employ all the strategies and methods we advise our web design clients to market their websites to market this directory website. (Pratice what we preach.)
If you already have your own website, then by buying a link from a quality website like this website you are benefiting your own websites search results.
One of Google’s most recent updates to the way they determine search results was that local search results would carry more weight. When looking for a plumber you want a plumber in the South Peninsula to assist you and not someone from America which is why we see local directories performing better as well as Google my business (Map results).
Even though we believe that a directory listing should not replace a business website, we believe that registering with the South Peninsula Tradesmen Directory is a step in the right direction.
