Hi. Craig's Man and Van in Kent website is now ONLY kept live as a visual aid to accompany the site building tips in my 33 Page Guide "How to Start a Man and Van Business"
People buy from people...Not companies! Show your face...This is my horrible mugshot here.
Include a video of your business in action. This way people can see your equipment, location, how you work, samples of your work. AND you can ask them for the order!
I shot this with my mobile phone and edited it with the free software that comes with any computer.
If you are unable to do this yourself, ask me for help or try sites like fiverr.com You can hire freelancers to make a video very cheaply. If you struggle with content writing or SEO, use freelancers to help you.
Include your Face Picture?
Why I Shot a Man and Van Video for My Site?
Because Youtube displays this as a results in Google searches !
Your H1 Title
MUST include your site concept keyword ONCE ONLY!
Keyword Density Warning
Do NOT stuff your site with keywords.. Google will penalize you and your ranking will slip.
Visitor experience is more important.
Talk about how you provide a solution to a problem.
I included words that would convert to higher earning man and van jobs so that I would be found for searches such as "Fragile Delivery", "Same Day", eBay delivery service etc...and then the town names that I work in.
Try specialise in something. I bought a secondhand piano on eBay to practice piano moving. Within a year I owned Kent's largest piano moving company!
Built credibility by including the fact that you have insurance, have pictures of your van and any speciality work you do.
Also, do NOT advertise your prices on your website because there is little insentive for your viewers to place an enquiry if you do.
If you advertise cheap prices then that's all YOU think you're worth! What then makes you different to the others out there doing what you do?
I won business quoting much higher prices because I did the following:
Speed of reply to their enquiry,
Supplying written fixed price quotes.
Confirming my availibilty to do the job at a specific time with a booking confirmation.
When quoting I also reminded them that I was insured.
Having Man and Van Goods in Transit insurance earned me money rather than cost me money because many more people chose to use me because of it.
What Makes You Worth More Than the Compitition?...
And Why I NEVER Advertised Prices!
When you build your site, write small snippets of easy to read information. It's far easier to absorb as most people just scan web pages.
You'll see on this man and van site that I've made one or 2 words RED so that it catches the eye.
Give away FREE info so people stay on your site
Your Call To Action Buttons must be large.
Ask for an action. Get Quote...See My Reviews...See My Diary etc.
USE words like "Me" "My" "Get"
Don't just say "Quote" or Reviews on your nav buttons
Use Bullet Points to highlight keywords. Areas that I worked my man with van removals business in are a great way to show
A. You're local, and
B Draw the eye to words that people would have used to search for my business on Google
