A call came in recently from a woman who helps people get things done. She is a professional, personal concierge. Her client ordered her to locate house painters. She had to get three quotes and one of them had to come from a Black woman- owned business able to do jobs in the Boston area.
So she arrived at BlackBoston.com Black-owned business directory. “I ended up searching all over the internet and came across Black-owned companies who made things like jewelry, fashion and gifts but that’s not the type of companies I wanted,” she said. “I was running out of time so when I saw that I could just tell somebody at your site what I wanted, that’s what I decided to do,” She said.
That’s right. We want to be found by people looking for plumbers, painters, electricians, fence installers and the trades that make their money in the suburbs visiting houses while most people are at work in an office dive where. We identify with the trades because for years we fixed computer problems in offices and homes. Digital Plumbers we called ourselves.
“Everybody needs a good digital plumber”was the motto on the wall along with “we fix it, sell it, rent it and explain it. explain it.”
Those were the days when we had to go get every opportunity. Over time we became a “go to” in the industry but we never cut the advertising spend completely. We had to be Visible. We had to be seen to get new customers and okd ones too,
We give the trades opportunities from people ready to buy right now. We gather a broad range of Request for Quotes from homeowners, business people and procurement officials seeking MBEs. These items are for all kinds of specialties from Accountants to Telecommunications ( A to Z ).
I don’t think many trade shops use their websites to make themselves visible. They don’t shoe up when people are Googling for what they do.
