The Power of a Recommendation

I conducted a survey and discovered that consumers prefer to look for tradespeople that have been recommended by others, rather than searching on the internet.

The survey showed that when consumers are looking for suitable tradespeople, online directories have a market penetration as low as 7%!

The Issues We Aim to Fix

The availability of skilled tradespeople in the UK is in decline

Tradespeople need to feel valued, respected, and appreciated for their services

Sad looking brain
The construction industry has the highest suicide rate than any other profession

Tradespeople should be provided with help, support, guidance, and motivation
