Trade marketing has evolved
Long gone are the days when a tradesman could simply take out an advert in the paper and wait for the phone to ring. Like all sectors, technology has rapidly developed over the years and digital marketing is now critical to developing a business. Search engine optimisation, Online lead generation, Social media marketing, Google ad campaigns, Website maintenance - critical elements to any business nowadays that consume vast amounts of time and money.

That said, old fashioned networking can still play it’s part - with decades in the trade, Plumbhappy has developed strong relationships with equipment manufacturers, complimentary trade business and property management firms.
Rapid growth from the start
You might be thinking; “Why invest in a franchise, I could do this myself”. If you have sufficient business acumen and can provide a good service, you can certainly build your own trade business - many people do. However, you have to consider the journey required to get there. Starting a business from scratch is challenging, especially building a customer base. Most plumbing firms, despite how they might present themselves, typically consist of a few engineers with the director working extremely long hours on the tools. Growing from a one man band to a team typically takes years and often plateaus quickly after that.
A Plumbhappy franchise allows you to have a constant stream of customers where the only obstacle is the size of the team you’re willing to manage.
