features of your contractor web design
Positive visitor experience
Visually appealing design that creates an enjoyable user experience and positively represents your business.
Your website looks great on mobile phones, tablets, and desktops. Our mobile sites have a custom header that allows visitors to easily call you with one click. We can also add “click to text” functionality if you prefer texting.
100% Custom design
We don’t use themes, templates, or other pre-packaged, restrictive framework. This allows us to build completely custom sites – design, layout, motion, images, text, you name it! Your website will be designed around your logo and branding so everything is cohesive and unique to your business.
Before & After Image Slider
This specific design features gets a spot because it’s useful for remodeling contractors to showcase their work.
SEO website features
Natural keyword usage
Everyone has been to a website that is plastered with keywords – it doesn’t feel genuine. Further, it creates a negative user experience which will cause users to leave your website, or spend significantly less time on it. Search engines want to show websites that users find value in and spend time on – as shown in “average time on site”, “bounce rate”, and other behavioral website metrics that indicate user experience.
Keywords are still important though! We blend your most valuable keywords seamlessly into the website. This produces better search engine results without diluting the visitor experience.
Lightning fast website speed
Site speed is an important factor in SEO; our websites are lightweight so your site runs fast. Our website framework was built from the ground-up with no themes, templates, and unnecessary components that slow websites down.
Additionally, our premium website hosting servers (powered by Google Cloud) hold to the highest industry standards in speed and security.
Like speed and load time, website security is an ever-increasing factor in a website’s ability to rank high in search engines. All our websites come with a custom SSL encryption, smart IP blocking, malware protection and daily backups. Notice the “https://” and green padlock in the browser window.
Increased Google map visibility
Your website is connected to your Google My Business (or, Google Business Page) which gives you higher visibility in the Google Local Pack and Google Maps. This strong connection is made by adding “Schema Markup” to your website. Also, proper keyword usage helps to increase your Google My Business visibility.
Proper tag usage
Proper usage of Meta Tags (title and description) and Alt Tags will instantly get your website in better standing than a majority of small business websites today. Meta Tags communicate to search engines the summary of a specific page. Alt Tags are attached to images to communicate what the image is. We write custom Tags for all your pages and images so search engines can better index your site for related keywords. Note: You can see these “tags” in action on a Google Search Results Page – Title Tag is blue, Description Tag is underneath.
Lead capture form
The ultimate goal of your website is to produce leads. Your website will come equipped with an Estimate Form that captures customer information: name, phone number, email, address, job description, and anything else you’d like to gather. These forms are automatically sent to any email(s) you’d like.
Social media integration
We add social icons throughout your site to exposure visitors to your social media channels, which increases your followers over-time. Additionally, if you have other online profiles (ex: HomeAdvisor, Nextdoor, Thumbtack, etc.) we link those, as it’s beneficial to your site’s SEO. If you’d like a “live feed” of Facebook or Instagram, we can also add that.
email marketing and CRM integration
If you use a CRM or Email Marketing platform, we can integrate them into your website. You can view our most popular integrations below.
encourage customer reviews
Consistently garnering online reviews is one of the best things you can do for your business, and even one of the best things you can do for your online presence. We make this easy by creating a “leave a review” section with links that take visitors directly to leave a review on your profiles.
Website traffic data
Thank You Page
After a visitor submits a Lead Form, they’ll be directed to a Thank You page that thanks them by name. This is an added layer of professionalism that creates a more personal interaction. At this point, the visitor is also encouraged to follow your social media accounts.
Friendly Customer Support
When you trust Handyman Web Design with your website, you’ll gain a new team member for your business. You can always reach out to ask us a question, add project photos, a new review, or whatever else you’d like.
