Choosing and Targeting
The Right Customers and Project Types for Your Business

Marketing for Contractors

Many remodelers and builders have come to realize that their businesses can no longer be all things to all people and that trying to do so makes it almost impossible to differentiate themselves in today’s marketplace.  If consumers can’t differentiate between businesses, they use price as their basis to choose a contractor.  Smart consumers don’t want generic.  They want different and many are using the Internet to find, research and prequalify which businesses they will work with.  And, if your business doesn’t have a quality web site that demonstrates your differences, visitors will move on to one that does.
