Can you believe it? We can’t! We’ve had 1 million YouTube views for our TV ad, which hasn’t even been broadcasted nationwide yet. That’s a reason to celebrate, right there. The fact that we’ve also had our 1 millionth homeowner job submitted, means that we’ll definitely end this year on a high.
Our TV commercial has already aired in Scotland and will reach the rest of the country starting from January. You won’t be able to miss it, the whole TV screen lights up with a halo from the crisp, all white background. Also, if you can get that tune out your head, we commend you. We’ve been whistling it ever since August when the ad was shot.
Our 1 millionth job was serviced yesterday in North London. What was the glamorous description? To fit a new flat roof and skylight. The lucky tradesman who won the job was Vince Henry from V J and Sons. Based in Chelmsford, Essex, Vince is one of our 5-star tradesmen, with over 20 positive ratings. VJ and Sons specialise in roofing, but they also undertake bathroom refurbs, guttering, external painting and leaky taps.
While we didn’t see Vince in action, we’ll be joining him for an on site visit, where we’ll pump him for information about guttering and roofing. He’s got 30 years of experience in the construction industry, so we expect him to give us plenty of insider know-how.
You won’t be able to score the 2 millionth job just yet, but you’ll definitely score a quality, local tradesman.
