A lot of exciting things are happening at Rated People. Next week we’re back on TV, sponsoring ITV’s May the Best House Win. We’ll also flash across Dave, Sky News, Channel 4 and the Discovery Channel. Our ambassador Fiona Fullerton did the voiceover for May the Best House Win. In case you don’t know, Fiona is a journalist and property expert, she also starred as the Bond girl in A View to a Kill.
We’re maximising our exposure in print, on TV, on radio and on taxis this year to make sure that quality jobs keep coming through. Our research shows that only 9 out of 100 homeowners search Google when they are in need of a tradesman, and we obviously want that number to increase. Since our industry is quite new, we need to show how easy it is to find quality tradesmen online. We hope you have seen us on the front page of Sunday Times, we’ll be hosting that space throughout the year.
We’ve listened to your feedback and some of you have pointed out that the leads have become expensive recently. To kick-start the summer (and to combat the double dip recession) we’ve therefore lowered our prices. We hope that winning work will be even more profitable now! Remember that each lead is purchased by no more than three tradesmen, and the reason for this is so that homeowners can compare quotes and find the right tradesmen for them.
New summer pricing will start June 1st.
If you have any feedback to give us, please get in touch. Your opinions are very valuable to us, and we’re always trying to improve our service.
