Digital Marketing for Remodeling & Home Construction Companies
There are many reasons why a business needs to do marketing. Marketing allows businesses to inform their target customer base of their products and services. It is also a great way for businesses to create and manage healthy relationships with customers. But marketing without problem solving, that isn’t solution-based, can often lead to undesired frustrations.
While in the past, businesses relied on print, direct mail, telephone, radio, and television to spread their marketing messages, a lot has since changed. Today, online mediums that include search engine optimization, pay per click, social media, and email present amazing opportunities.

Why market my construction business online?
6 compelling reasons
With the right strategies, online marketing can help to take your business to the next level in terms of growth and profitability. It is important to understand how digital marketing strategies can put you ahead of the competition. Here are some of the benefits we help construction businesses to enjoy.
#1 Global reach
Internet marketing makes it possible for businesses to sell their products and services to a wide base of customers. It allows businesses of all sizes to access customers in your precise local area, or even to reach millions of prospective customers around the world.
Through the different tools and strategies, builders’ services can be seen by more targeted customers than ever before. Even more powerful than thousands of people seeing your website every month are thousands of the right people seeing your website and online ads. What do we mean by the right people? Simple. People searching specifically for the products and services you provide, in the area you provide them.
We work with construction companies to identify the best ways through which they can advertise and sell their products and services to more customers.
#2 Round-the-clock marketing
One of the main benefits of online marketing is that it allows construction companies to advertise the business 24 hours every day. Unlike traditional marketing methods that limit the campaign to store hours or short 15 second soundbites on the radio and come with high price tags, online marketing campaigns are not limited by time. In fact, the ability to customize the time of day potential customers are able to see your Google ads, for example, is a powerful campaign optimization strategy that helps you to save money and increase conversions.
In general, provided customers can access your website and get in touch with you to request a quote or more information, they will be able to transact with you conveniently at any time of the day or night. In fact, BizIQ makes this even more convenient for both you and your customers by including BizIQ ChatBot with every local marketing package. Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), BizIQ ChatBot can collect and answer questions and inquiries placed on your website around the clock.
#3 Low cost
Since marketing affects any company’s budget, the cost is an important factor to keep in mind when launching any marketing campaign. If you are looking for a cost-effective way to reach your target audience, you should consider online marketing. Compared to traditional forms of advertising such as television, radio ads, and mounting billboards, online marketing will save you a significant amount of money because they are highly targeted.
In short, instead of paying for eyeballs on a billboard or similar, you’re paying for targeted advertising designed to be seen by the right customer, not just anyone.
#4 Builds lasting relationships
Today, customers are more likely to do business with companies with which they enjoy a healthy relationship. That means being accessible, visible, and responsive to your customer’s needs. The internet allows you to easily keep in touch with your prospects and customers through a variety of channels. You can then use these details to inform your target audience of special discounts, new products and thank them for their business via email, or share photos of your latest project on social media. You can also get your special offers and advertising in front of people you’d be unlikely to reach otherwise through search engine optimization or paid media advertising. The options are unlimited, but this kind of consistent interaction will help you to build healthy relationships that increase customer retention levels and bring in new customers each month.
#5 Targeted marketing made easy
For any marketing campaign to be successful, it must be based upon a message that is specifically and intentionally designed for a target audience. For you, that target audience may consist of a previously untapped demographic of new customers, existing customers that you’re hoping to bring back, or a mixture of the two. And to reach anyone, you need data: what kind of people are these users? What are they looking to buy? Who do they usually buy from? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you create engaging ads, and a good business website is one invaluable tool for becoming (and staying) well-informed on your customers’ habits. A savvy marketer will use a campaign to track customer purchasing history via online stores and monitor the popularity of individual pages, then use that information to determine what most grabs a user’s attention and make changes to your brand accordingly.
#6 Use social media to your advantage
Social media has become the sensation of the online world. Apart from using the sites to communicate with loved ones, consumers use social media platforms to find out more about the products they are interested in. They also see them as channels through which they can engage with their preferred brands. By incorporating social network tools in your larger marketing campaigns, you will be in a position to go through real comments and reviews posted by customers.

We provide construction companies with the tools they need to know what customers are saying. In this way, the companies can earn reviews from satisfied customers and respond appropriately to negative feedback.
These services are important for businesses that have moved to a new location and want to update business information online. Since a good number of local searches are done online, businesses have to ensure that information is consistent across all platforms. This is important for credibility as well as search engine rankings.
Types of construction businesses we help
We work with different construction companies to help them take advantage of the opportunities that online marketing presents. Below are some types of construction businesses we help.
Residential (new construction)
Demand for decent and affordable housing has increased over the past few years. This has led to the establishment of construction companies that offer quality services in terms of the construction of new residential units. With the increased demand, we help such companies to market themselves online, so they can reach a wider customer base. In a world where the companies can offer their services in different countries, online marketing helps to take advantage of the opportunities available around the world.
After one has lived in their house for some time, they may want to remodel the space in order to make it more functional and improve its appearance. However, remodeling is an expensive exercise, making it important for homeowners to work with a reliable remodeling company. There are many companies that offer quality services but find it difficult to advertise their products to potential customers. Our expertise in online marketing allows us to help these construction businesses to ensure that their marketing message reaches the target audience.
We also work with construction companies that build commercial spaces. Today, thanks to globalization and advances in technology, businesses can easily overcome geographical barriers.
