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).
Find Local Tilers on Tilers Forums
TilersForums.com has been running since 2006 and has the largest database of wall and floor tilers in the UK. You can post a thread on the forum for free, and allow professional tilers to contact you via the forum. Each tiler will have a searchable profile on the forum where you can see tiling advice they’ve provided to fellow peers.
Not sure we’ll make a massive dent with Free Rated Traders. 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.
UK Tiling Forum is for Professional and DIY Wall and Floor Tilers in the UK. Our tiling forum is more than just an advice website with a one-off answer to a one-off tiling question.
Our UK Tiling Forum is a community that provides tiling education and tiling courses to those who are in need of learning how to tile properly to a professional tiling standard.
Who’s UK Tiling Forum Rocks?
Our UK Tiling Forum rocks.
TilersForums.com is the World’s largest wall and floor tiling advice community. Whether a Tiling Forum Facebook Community Group or Page, a Twitter Tiling Forum Account, a Google Places Tiling Forum Page; TilersForums.com is still number one.
Started in 2006 TilersForums.co.uk was not the first tiling forum online. The founder actually created another website, TileForums.com, first. That website was created as part of a much wider business model whereby trainee wall and floor tilers who paid to learn how to tile would visit the forum after attending the course to ask and answer tiling questions.
Once one tiling question was answered, all other tiling questions of the same nature would be directed to the forum thread, therefore the answer, and the phone calls to the tiling training centre would minimise.
How One Tiling Training Centre Became A Whole Tile Industry After A Few Months, Not Years
Before a Wall and Floor Tiler could get advice for free online one would have few options. One could register to a local college tiling courses, and hope a placement became available that suited ones time schedule.
Often, tiling courses were provided during 9-5 hours at best, 9-3 (school hours) otherwise. And during the working week, so Monday to Friday.
Independent Tiling Training Centres Teaching Independent Tiling Courses to Trainee Wall and Floor Tilers
There becomes the issue.
A person who is already in work, therefore work-driven, is unable to carry out training within their working schedule.
A training centre was required that fitted within that model.
This soon became a bit of a standard.
The first independent tiling training centre that wasn’t part of an adhesive manufacturer was setup by the guy who set up BAL’s training centre many years prior.
I happened to work for the guy as a tiler at the time and he explained that this training centre thing might be viable. I built a website for it that ranked well. We built the centre in units. And took course bookings for a weekly fee. About 16 tilers per course.
A massive industry was then made through very similar structures and they all do well. People need these courses. And forums are good places for the trainees to attend after the courses.
