First things first: Your Website – Your Digital Storefront:

  • Think of it as your shiny new toolbox, open 24/7. Make it mobile-friendly – no one wants to squint on a tiny screen to find your phone number. This is such an important point. If you don’t know whether your website is mobile-friendly, just look at it on a phone. Is it squished and hard to read, if so, then you need to renovate your website and make it mobile-friendly, otherwise Google is going to penalise you with a red card. Give us a call if you would like a recommendation from a web designer who can renovate your website for the right price.
  • Speak the language of your tribe. Keywords like “Melbourne plumber” or “Sydney electrician” are your golden hammers. Sprinkle them through your site like sawdust that your apprentice forgot to clean up. Sure, it needs to be readable, no one is going to hire you if your website just looks like spam. But on the other hand, no one is going to see your website if it isn’t ranking for your keywords. If you want us to handle this step for you, visit our SEO for tradies website to see the complete range of SEO services we provide.
  • Images? Videos? Heck yeah! Show off your work, your happy customers, and your smile (even if it’s under a dodgy beard).

Local SEO – Rule Your Neighborhood:

  • Claim your Google My Business profile. It’s like planting a neon sign pointing right to your door.
  • Gather local citations like confetti. Think online directories, trade forums, local Facebook groups – get your name out there!
  • Reviews are your reputation gold. Encourage happy customers to sing your praises online. Bad reviews? Handle them like a pro, show you care.
  • For what it is worth, we are one of the leading local SEO Sydney agencies.

Content – Your Secret Weapon:

  • Blog like a boss! Share tips, tricks, and industry news – show you’re the expert, not just the guy with the wrench.
  • Optimize your content for search engines. Yes we are talking about optimal keywords again, but don’t stuff them in. Think naturally, like you’re talking to a mate. Make it conversational.
  • Images and videos, remember? Break up the text, make it eye-catching, and Google will love you for it.

Social Media – Where Your Customers Hang Out:

  • Find your tribe! Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn – pick the platforms where your ideal customers are scrolling.
  • Post regularly, be engaging, share your work, ask questions, and run contests. Make it a conversation, not a lecture.
  • Don’t just broadcast, listen! Respond to comments, answer questions, and show you’re a real person (not just a social media ghost).

SEO Tools – Your Tech Toolbox:

  • Google Search Console is your free SEO spyglass. See how your website is performing, track keywords, identify problems.
  • SEMrush or Ahrefs – these are the power tools for serious players. Analyze competitors, research keywords, track your progress – like having a digital foreman on your team. Admittedly, these are fairly expensive. Realistically, you are better off just engaging our services as we use these tools so it is better value for money for you to use our accounts.

Track, Analyze, Adapt:

  • Data is your friend. Use Google Analytics to see where your traffic is coming from, what’s working, and what’s not.
  • Don’t be afraid to tweak your strategy. SEO is a marathon, not a sprint. Keep testing, learning, and adapting.


  • Consistency is key. Building online visibility takes time and effort, but the rewards are worth it.
  • Quality matters. Crap content and spammy tactics will get you nowhere fast. Be helpful, be informative, be the tradie you’d want to hire.
  • SEO is an ongoing journey. Keep learning, keep adapting, and watch your online empire rise!

Now go forth, tradies, and conquer the digital jungle! With these tips and the right SEO mindset, you’ll be attracting leads like moths to a flame. And remember, we’re always here to cheer you on!
