Trade directories and lead buying sites stand between you and your customers, and their costs keep increasing. Verified is the only free directory service, built in partnership with trades professionals, to fight back against the increasing costs of winning work.
5 years ago Expert Trades tried to create a free directory… but it failed. It failed because we didn’t have the team or the community that we have got today. 18 Months ago we launched Tool Talk as a place for members to review tools. Tool Talk now has 100,000 product views a month and growing fast.
We’re using this same collaboration with our community to grow Verified. We’ve proven we can get 100,000+ profile views a month for our members and help them win more work, all whilst keeping it completely free.
Verified will be successful if we have enough trades like you commit a small amount of time each month.
All you need to do is share your advice to common homeowner questions. We will find the top searches, like “What is the best combi boiler?” or “How much is a house re-wire?“, and get homeowners to our website. We are NOT asking you to tell people how to do the work, only share advice as you would with any customer enquiry.
Once they’re there and we know they need some work doing on their home, we will let them search for one of our members and win them the work.
Our Founder, Adam Callow, left his job 5 years ago to help trades professionals win more work and be succesful. Since then the company has helped thousands of trades with free services and paid services.
We know the more value we bring to you, our community, the more you trust us. So the bigger the community, the more trades that will use our admin app, buy our website package, come to events and review tools in Tool Talk.
Our paid services are 100% optional and you can create, use and build your Verified account with no need to EVER buy from us.
It’s a true WIN WIN.
Verified is more than a profile for your business. It is a movement to impact our industry for the better and grow your business.
Due to the rapid growth of Verified and with so many trades signing up, it’s hard to keep on top of the amazing numbers we’re witnessing! Therefore the Verified map and trade breakdown numbers are updated every 5 days.
Expert Trades have helped us grow as a little business beyond our wildest dreams! They have such a lot to offer many trades what with courses they run, promotions, competitions, podcasts. There is no other company out there like Expert Trades that works with the trades & so much for the trades. The way they work & operate sure is unique, I like it & find it extremely beneficial for my business.
I know the guys listen to what us tradesmen need and add the features. My website has worked great for me over the last two years getting me some decent jobs in. Expert trades have brought me closer to manufacturers which is great. It helps me make decisions when purchasing a product. Keep up the good work, Afterglow Plumbing and Heating Ltd.
I worked for a larger company who used Clik Software but when I started on my own I decided to try Expert Trades due to online recommendation. I am delighted with the service and feel I'm using a company who want to do more and more for there customers and make our jobs easier, Gilmour Gas Services
I have been using Expert Trades for nearly two years now for both the Website and Office packages.
