So, here are the 11 proven strategies which were used to promote your construction business and grow your revenue.

1.Google My business

One of the beneficial things which most businesses don’t have is google my business which comes under local SEO.

Let’s suppose when someone searches on google about the best construction company near me or construction companies in the USA.

Then what do you think will be ranked first or displayed first on google.

Those businesses that were having google my business.

So, first thing first you need to set up your google my business account and fill in all the details like website, contact number, opening and closing hours, days closed, regularly post in there for your business.

2. Google ads in your local regions

If you had a budget to run ads then you can run ads on Google when somebody searches a specific keyword in a specific region.

This can make you grab target customers who were in need of your services.

But let me tell you honestly if you are starting to run ads on google search then you have to pay a good amount of money to run ads on google.

So, this should be done when you have a separate budget for promotions.

3. Writing Articles or blogs in your website

This is one of the things which most of the construction companies lags because they think that this will be not effective for their business.

But let me tell you that if you are really writing to solve the problems or providing information in your niche in the form of articles or blogs you will get initial free traffic in your website which can convert you into your customers.

So, you can either hire someone to write articles if your budget allows or if you had a good amount of knowledge in your niche.

4. Document your journey on Social media

Most of the people in the construction industry were doing the type of content in which users were not interested.

But what you can do is that if you have a construction company it doesn’t matter whether it’s small or big you just document your journey.

For example:

If you are building a home you can show them how you are building a home and what type of materials you were using and what unique things you were doing.

Then what you can do is that you are first engaging with your potential customers and building a brand.

So, what you can do is shoot a long piece of vlog or video in which you were documenting what you were doing and then publish the main video on youtube.

And then cut some interesting or fun parts in your vlogs or video into short videos and publish them to all social media.

In this way, you are making one piece of content (long) and then making 5-10 pieces of content from it.

Here are some platforms where you should definitely build your online presence:

  1. Facebook
  2. Instagram
  3. Tiktok
  4. Youtube (must)

5. Showcase who your employees and what their experience and credibility

As a customer, we want to give work to those people who were having a good amount of experience and that’s why we search for the best.

So, what if a customer land on your website and doesn’t get to know about your workers and their credibility they will leave the website no matter if you are the best.

Make sure you have photos of your permanent workers in your company and you can show their experience in the niche if they had any.

6. Showcase your testimonials and reviews (Both good and bad)

You need to show other potential customers about your earlier happy customers reviews and testimonials either it can be text or video.

This shows that how happy customers were with your business.

Now, if you get some bad reviews then also you show those and don’t just show them try to make a video about the bad review and how your company solved the problem of customers.

This shows that you don’t only care about customers when doing business you also provide services when they were having problems in this way you will build credibility.

7.Analyse the social media trends

You need to analyse the social media trends which were currently in the trends and then try to make your content associated with those trends.

It will help you to make your content and your brand reach out to more people all over the world.

8. Advertising on Facebook and Instagram

Now, if you want to make your brand or business get recall or get clients from social media then you can use paid ads of Facebook and Instagram which were really effective and budget-friendly if you do it correctly.

Here are some key insights which you need to know before start running ads on Facebook and Instagram:

  • Target audience keyphrase and location
  • Age of your target audince
  • Income
  • Gender

But first, try to run ads on images and video separately in different campaigns.

Which is known as A/B testing where you will get to know which type of audience you are getting and what kind of content your audience was interested in.

And if your content is fun and engaging then you can also run ads on Instagram reels and stories.

Running ads on social media for branding and getting a lead is one of the most effective strategies if you had money and a good content strategy and also if you run the ads effectively.

9.Do something which can be recalled

Most of the businesses were not making an extra effort like when you get extra goodies with your clothes when you order online it makes you happy and next time you order the same brand of clothes because you got extra goodies in it.

So, in your construction niche what you can do in order that your customer or anyone who sees it remind you.

For example:

If you are building a house then you can arrange a good or simple house inauguration party and make videos of those or images to capture the moment.

And gift those things in a form where they can display those things in their drawing room and do a small branding like your logo or your name in it.

Such that whenever someone sees it they got to know about your business and brand.

10.Get customer details and nurture them

Once you successfully complete a customers construction work what you can do is take their details like:

  • Name
  • Birthday
  • Contact number
  • Email id
  • Social media accounts

When you get these details you can send them a personalised message from your company like what banks and many big brands does.

And if you had an engaging or good social media following then you can post a story for them about their birthday.

This will show you that you actually care about customers and somewhere the customers will always call you whenever they got some construction work.

11. Referal programs

This is one of the effective strategies to get new customers.

For that, you need to create an online or offline referral program where you will give some cash or prizes to the user or customers who refer your company to someone who then turns your customers.
