Homeowners have thrown traditional contractor marketing strategies like the Yellowpages and door hangers out the window and turn to search engines like Google and Bing to book their next home improvement project. What’s more, if your competitors have more than one listing on page one of Google (like PPC ads, multiple organic listings, maps listings, etc.) this significantly decreases the chance that your listing will win the click!

Want More Contracting Leads and New Clients? These Are the Contractor Marketing Strategies You’ll Need:
The Best Marketing Strategy for Contractors? An Optimized Website
Wondering how the best contractors get leads and new clients? Chances are, it has something to do with their website and what’s on it. Your website isn’t a brochure; it’s a virtual sales rep capable of generating massive amounts of leads and sales for your business, all at a fraction of the cost of traditional contractor marketing and advertising. Your website shouldn’t be an afterthought to your online contractor marketing strategy—A full 75% of people will judge your company based on how it looks.
If you want people to land on—and stay on—your contractor website, it needs to be five things:
- Your website needs to be visible – When we say visible, we mean in search engines like Google. Learn more about SEO below!
- Your website needs to be mobile-friendly – Google ranks mobile websites higher in the search engine results, and consumers expect a mobile-friendly website.
- Your website needs to be secure – Most consumers won’t browse a non-HTTPS website. Google also gives preference to secured websites in the search results.
- Your website needs to be fast – Google’s recommended page speed is under two seconds. Even a one-second delay can cause a 7% reduction in conversions.
- Your website needs an optimal user experience – Once your page loads, users form an opinion in 0.5 seconds. They expect to be able to find information easily and quickly—especially from a mobile device.
Blue Corona always includes those website must-haves if you opt-into website services in your general contractor marketing plan.
Contractor SEO & Content Marketing
IMPROVE Organic SEARCH RANKINGS with SEO for contractors
Each month, there are more than one million online searches for contractors. If you want your company to be the one that gets hired, your website needs to rank at the top of the search results pages.
To rank well organically, you must establish and promote yourself as the authority for what you do, in the markets you do it. Ranking well on Google, Bing, and Yahoo requires three things:
1. First, your website must be coded in a way that makes it easy for the search engines’ software to find, crawl, and index your website. At Blue Corona, our webmasters specialize in coding websites and landing pages that are not only visually appealing but also are highly optimized for search engines—allowing your contracting company to get more traffic, leads, and sales from the internet.
2. Second, create a data-driven content strategy with unique, relevant, high-quality content your customers crave. Google ranks web pages individually, not websites as a whole. Our content marketing team has extensive experience writing online content (including blogs, landing pages, press releases, e-mail newsletters, E-books, and more) specifically for contractors—so you won’t have to write a thing.
3. Third, promote your site to other relevant and authoritative websites and get them to link to, reference, and cite you as an authority. Unlike other SEO companies, you’ll never have to worry about us building spammy links that will get you penalized by Google!
LOCAL SEARCH OPTIMIZATION
Did you know that nearly half of the total Google search queries have local intent? In addition to improving your organic search engine listings with contractor SEO services, if you’re a contractor, it’s also vital that you optimize for Google’s local listings. These three local listings often appear before the organic listings in Google’s map listings, leading to better click-through-rates for your company from potential customers.
As an award-winning SEO company, we understand that the more listings you have on the first page of search results—including local listings, organic listings, and paid listings—the better. Our local SEO services will increase your visibility for geographically related searches.
Pay Per Click Advertising for Contractors (PPC)
Because SEO campaigns can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months to deliver results, we always recommend our new contractors invest in both pay per click (PPC) and SEO services. When you hire Blue Corona for PPC management, we handle it all—from keyword discovery to bid management, from ad copy creation to ad split testing; from pay per click call tracking to landing page optimization; we take care of everything and report the results to you monthly.
Investing in PPC, content marketing, and SEO, as well as local SEO, is the most effective way to get more leads and sales from the web as well as maximize your contracting company’s online real estate. When you have a paid listing, local listing, and organic listing for a given search query, you greatly reduce the chance of someone clicking on one of your competitor’s links!
No Contractor Digital Marketing Plan is Complete Without Analytics and Tracking
The best contractor marketing services start with the right tracking and analytics. If you’re like most contractors, you don’t have the time or resources to waste on ineffective advertising strategies. That’s why at Blue Corona, we accurately measure and track every contractor digital marketing campaign (from pay per click to SEO to e-mail newsletters and more) to find out which advertising and marketing strategies work and which should be changed or eliminated.
But don’t worry! You won’t receive loads of reports or spreadsheets to analyze! We understand that you’re busy running your contracting business, and you simply don’t have time for that. That’s why we’ll also analyze your data and give you actionable recommendations to measurably improve your performance.
At Blue Corona, our contractor marketing services include:

- Custom research and analysis
- Phone call tracking and recording
- Conversion rate optimization
- Google Analytics consulting

Our Happy Clients

We ended up choosing Blue Corona because they impressed us with their thorough research and understanding of our needs and our culture. The big benefit for us throughout the process was their ability to leverage their team's experience when we had an idea of what we wanted to do but didn't really know how to implement...”

“"We trust our support team at Blue Corona completely and quite frankly are involved in very little of what they do for us. They truly understand SEO and what is needed to make it work. I would say this has been the most valuable aspect of working with Blue Corona.
