The first of our Tradies’ Hot Seat victims is Helen Yost from the all-girl plumbing business The Plumbettes. Helen asked for help via a social media group to deal with the Christmas slow down experienced by many tradie businesses.

We invited Helen into the studio for a live consultation and looked at some simple ways she could generate some more leads quickly, convert more of those leads into customers and do it profitably and without spending a ton of money on advertising.

We covered strategies and topics such as:

  • defining your target market
  • measuring the effectiveness of your marketing
  • networking
  • alliances and how to make them work
  • social media strategy
  • the use of free PR to get traffic to your site
  • and so much more!
