Baxi has joined forces with Expert Trades to try and make life easier for its installers, by helping them to win more business and spend less time on admin and paperwork.
Expert Trades was set up in 2013 to provide tradespeople with business tools (accessible online and via an app) to help them manage and grow their businesses more effectively.
Installers can set up a free online profile on the Expert Trades website to showcase their qualifications, skills and past work. This will help them get found by prospective customers, who can, in turn, leave reviews to rate the work done for them. For installers looking for a more substantial marketing platform, Expert Trades offers low cost, fixed price website building and search engine optimisation to ensure their website is picked up in internet searches.
As well as its online marketing tools, Expert Trades has an app for installers to more efficiently manage their paperwork, like quotes, invoices and electronic payments.
The site also features a community featuring updates on the latest product innovation, tools and offers currently available – as well as masterclasses and meetups to help installers build their businesses and enhance their reputation.
Expert Trades is recommended by Baxi installers, with those asked rating it 9 or 10 out of 10. Baxi installers registered with Expert Trades will get additional benefits such as regular updates on new products and offers, extra customer support and a one click function to add Baxi events or training to their calendars.
Dave Cook, sales director at Baxi said: “The partnership with Expert Trades is very much a way for us to add value to our installers and make their lives easier. We understand how busy they are and how marketing their businesses and doing the paperwork is not always the thing they look forward to most.
“By working with Expert Trades, who have a proven track record in helping tradespeople to better manage their businesses, we can introduce our installers to this fantastic new platform for success.”
Adam Callow, Expert Trades Founder CEO said: “We wanted to bring in a boiler company to support what we are doing at Expert Trades as we found that many of our customers are from the heating industry. By working closely with Baxi, we have more insight into what installers want and can tailor our offering for them to make it even better.”
