Find a Tiler with our new website that we’re working on. It’s in Beta stages right now, we have some test listings on it.
If you’re a friend of Tilers Forums then you’ll know that over the years we’ve attempted to do this a few times and although some worked for a bit, most didn’t. And they didn’t have the facilities needed to make a really nice website that was useable.
Our Old Find a Tiler Website; Find Trusted Tradesmen
We started off years ago with FindTrustedTradesmen.co.uk (a domain we gave up years ago as it got spammed heavily and lost it’s dominance in its category). A yellow directory website, similar to Yellow Pages site, it listed tilers and plumbers by category and you searched that category for your area.
Couldn’t Find Trusted Tradesmen
Very clunky. Not easy to use. Didn’t work on mobiles (although mobiles were terrible, iPhones didn’t exist back then so you had the Microsoft type phones if you even had one, and it was more of a PDA than a phone. Like a tiny laptop that was slow.
Free Rated Traders to Find a Tiler Local to You Fast and Easy – and FREE!
We have this website now that we’ve had behind the scenes for a while. We’re running it through some more testing. And have a few dummy listings on it right now. Then we’ll be working on the Trusted Advisors on all our forums first. Then we’ll let it go out to all other people who want to get a listing, all for free.
Hopefully we’ll start cutting into the market share that MyBuilder, CheckaTrade, RatedPeople and all the others that either charge the customer / homeowner, or charge the contractor / tiler – which means either way that money is being paid in some sense by the customer (and being charged on their job in some way by the tradesperson).
Not sure we’ll make a massive dent. But why are people still paying for services like these that can be free! Not sure. Perhaps we’ll find out soon enough when we’re struggling for a budget. Maybe we’ll need investors at some point then to take it to the next level.
