More Leads Won't Help Your Business. But Getting Better Quality, Pre-Qualified Prospects From Your Website Is A Game Changer!
How would you describe your landscaping company?
- You're a newer company started within the last few years.
- You're somewhat established but really trying to grow.
- You own an established company but only want the best clients.
The one problem these business owners all share is the struggle to get better clients. The scrappy startup needs clients because they're struggling to establish themselves. The established contractor struggles to get more of the right types of clients so they can remain profitable. In both cases, the root of your problem is a marketing problem.
30 years ago you could call yourself "AAA Landscaping" get an add in the Yellow Pages and be at the top of the list in the phonebook. You were in business and getting calls. Now the medium is the Internet and if you don't bring your "A" game you're losing business to your competitors that do.
We've been helping landscaping contractors look more professional and generate more and better quality leads with local marketing since 2008. We do this by transforming their website into their most potent marketing weapon in their advertising arsenal.
You're a landscape contractor, you have projects to manage, estimates to do, employees to manage and keep busy, suppliers to pay, a family to support, and many other tasks you need to give attention to each day. The last thing you want to deal with is your website and digital marketing... But, deep down you know you have too.
If you’re a landscape or lawn care contractor there is only one thing keeping your company in business. Paying clients! So, how are you getting your best, most profitable clients right now?
If you’ve been in business any length of time you know that all clients are not created equal. Some clients trust you and your reputation, others seem to think you should work for free or with minimal profit. I speak with landscapers everyday who tell me they’re “really busy”. Or they’ll tell me they don’t really need a great website because they are so backlogged with work.
It’s funny when they tell me this because with a little probing, the picture becomes clear. They often are really busy, that’s no lie. But, usually they’re busy dealing with the wrong leads and undesirable clients. They're busy all right, but not really making good money or growing.
For example…. Your passion is building beautiful $50k - $200k+ outdoor living spaces but you’re too “busy” doing small projects. If you’re too busy doing the wrong type of projects then you don’t have a client problem. What you have is a marketing problem!
More often than not it’s usually a combination of several problems. Such As:
- Nobody can find your business online when they search for your services.
- Your website is too amateur looking and turns your ideal clients away.
- You don’t have enough amazing photos of the landscapes you’ve transformed.
- You have little or no online reviews, possibly even some negative ones.
- Your ad copy is poorly written and doesn’t resonate with your clients.
- Your marketing calls-to-action are so weak it doesn't encourage anyone to act.
Do you think your business struggles with any or all of the above problems? If you said, "No" then you probably don't need any help with marketing and there isn't much point in learning the tricks I have to share.
If on the other hand you struggle to get your share of the top tier clients in your area then you've come to the right place. Below you're going to learn why our approach works so well for landscaping and lawn care companies.
Don’t Let Your Amatuer Looking Website Scare Away GREAT Potential Clients!
As a landscaper you’re not really in the business of landscaping. Sure, you certainly are a landscaping company but that’s not really what your client buys from you. They are buying a dream or status. Maybe their dream is a backyard patio with an outdoor cooking area? Or maybe they want a retaining wall to carve out some sloped land? Maybe they just want someone to care and maintain their intricate landscape?
You’re really in the business of making your clients' properties more beautiful and more enjoyable. You’re in the business of improving their curb appeal. Increasing their property value. Helping them become the envy of their friends and neighbors. You’re in the business of making their property the nicest looking on the street.
You’re in an industry filled with client “wants” and not necessarily client “needs”. You must make yourself stand out and elevated above the competition.
A crappy DIY or cheap website simply can't convey the quality of your work or seriousness as a business. In fact, it works against you! Cheap, crappy or poorly built websites usually attract cheap, crappy clients, if they attract any at all! That’s just a fact!
We’ve solved this problem for our clients by developing our own, in-house, eye-catching layouts. We build awesome looking websites using designs that have been proven to work at converting visitors into new leads. You'll be proud to show it off!
Many Landscaping Contractors Waste THOUSANDS Of Dollars On Poorly Built Websites & Badly Implemented SEO Before Finding Us.
Here's What Some Of Our Clients Have To Say...
As a business owner for 27 years, the best decision I have ever made was having sites4contractors do what they do best, creating amazing websites. Couldn’t be happier with the results and the amount of leads my site has received since it was first built. Completely changed my business. Would highly recommend.
Carl Sorenson, owner of Sites4Contractors.com, didn’t keep his word to my company; He exceeded it. As an entrepreneur of 20+ years, it is rare indeed to be on the receiving end of a company that returns phone calls, and delivers a product or service as promised. Lots, and I mean LOTS, of people promise to deliver a “great website.” Sites4Contractors.com delivers. One of my companies, DRR Drywall Repair, recently completed a $30,000+ contract for the State of Florida. Why? We had a good website. Carl’s website. The Sites4Contractors.com designed website. Our timeline of ROI looked something like this. After seeing another contractor online Michigan brag how he had received “over 17 calls the last week for exterior work” in the WINTER, I got curious. I reached out to Carl, reviewed some of his work, and set up a time to talk via the contact portal on his site- https://www.sites4contractors.com/contact-us/ Carl interviewed us, and gave us the option to pursue business with him on Feb 4th. He spent nearly an hour and a half on the phone with us, making sure that his product and our business ethics would be a good fit. We accepted his proposal on Feb 22nd. Our site went “live” on Mar 18th. March 28th, most major website edits/tweaks were completed. April 30th, at 9:01 AM is when the initial call for the $30k+ project came in. Our new website was the reason the operations supervisor reached out to us, and left a voicemail. Carl’s company isn’t here to, ”grab your money and run.” He offers an attractive package, at an affordable price point, with easy pay terms. To date, he has responded no less than 12 times via email to get our website exactly how we needed it. Additionally, Carl integrated, at his company’s expense, a text notification system that allows us to see when a client is attempting to reach out to us, even if they aren’t able to fill out the entire form before submitting it. As a contractor in the field with limited data coverage at times, having that accessibility and redundancy of communication systems allows my company to continue to provide the level of service that we are known for. Specifically geared towards trade professionals and contractors, our WordPress based site, with intuitive plug-ins and fast load times, means that near instantaneous data exchange occurs between the prospective client and our online presence. The reviews tab that shows up on every screen is just obtrusive enough to encourage folks to find out WHY they should use our company. In short- If you are a tradesman, or in the construction industry, you should use sites4contractors.com for your website. Our Website- www.drrdrywallrepair.com
Carl has done a great job with my website. I used a DIY for many years but didn't have any proper SEO set up. I finally pulled the trigger and selected Carl for my new website, and I've been very happy. He has great insight into what your site needs to get you in front of the people you want to be in front of.
Carl and his team have done a fantastic job with our web development for our company. He is knowledgeable- they develop fresh content that is relative and accurate to our construction trades. Not only did they develop our website, they continually provide monthly services that got us to, and keep us at the first page of Google for most of the keywords we target. Given that our only two forms of advertising are our website and word-of-mouth, Sites4Contractors has been a key part of business growth. I strongly recommend Carl, his company, and his service to anyone in need. Keep it up!
I got my website built by Sites4Contractors. It was a great experience. They really understood what I needed and got the website done in timely manner. I would definitely recommend Carl and his company to my friends and family.
Carl and Sites4Contractors have built me 2 great websites. They provide great ROI and have helped us build our web presence. Carl says what he'll do, and does what he says, and often more! A rare characteristic these days. Highly recommend the sites4contractors team.
Off-Page SEO ( Search Engine Optimization)
Ater your new landscaping website has been completed we begin your off page SEO campaign. "Off Page" SEO is what happens "off" your website and involves items like social media profiles, local citation building, targeted backlink building, community outreach, local publicity, and analyzing your top-ranked competitors websites (for more opportunities). We spend many hours of time on this aspect of your Internet Marketing.
This is one area of Internet Marketing where it's extremely easy to be taken advantage of because you really don't know what your web guy/gal is or isn't doing. We document everything and provide it you!
Here's What To Expect With Your "Off-Page" Optimization.
The Cold Hard Truth About Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
SEO isn't something that just get's sprinkled on top of a website after it's built. I've had many conversations with landscapers who call me up and say "Hey, Carl, I had a website built and now I need some SEO". These conversations always end the same way! One quick look at their website and I can spot all of the corners that were cut and why SEO would be a complete waste of time.
If your web designer tells you that you'll need to hire someone else to search engine optimize your website it's a big waving red flag. They don't really know what they're doing!
Most of the people building websites out there, especially if the price is low, are clueless when it comes to building out an effective web presence, let alone the intricacies of SEO. With the software of today ANYBODY with a laptop can put together a "pretty" website. This doesn't make them a marketing expert nor does it make them an SEO "guru".
Rock-solid, SEO practices start from the ground up construction of your website. There are many little details and specific tasks that must be completed. It's for that very reason, we don't take on clients who want to hire us solely for SEO services. If we're going to get a client results we need to be in charge of building the website right from the beginning.

Frequently Asked Questions Answered Here!
This package takes approximately 14 to 21 business days to produce as we have more setup and a lot of writing to complete. Before we launch the website we'll go over it with you and make sure you're 100% happy with the final product and then when you say "go" we'll launch it for you. Once the website is launched we can proceed with your citation and backlink building campaign and regular project case study posts to your blog.
That's a good question but a tough one to answer. If your business has been around for a few years and you are advertising with other methods then you'll see results from the website very quickly. If you're relying 100% on your website for new business than you'll need to allow 3-6 months to start seeing results.
You can certainly provide us with elements from other sites you might like and we offer some limited flexibility with the design. If you leave it up to us you'll have a beautiful, professional website that will impress your potential clients.
If you care about results, just let us do our thing and you'll be very happy with your website. If you don't like the look of the sites we build then you'll probably want to hire someone else, I am just being straight up and honest with you. Custom designs are just that "custom" and not necessarily proven to work well.
When we design the site it's going to look great and help you attract more and better quality clients.
If you don't have very many photos of your work or the ones you have aren't the best quality, that's OK. We can use stock photography on the website to get it rolling. You'll want to replace any stock images with photos of your own work as soon as you can.
Yes! Once the website has been paid in full you will have access to the website. We use an extremely popular page builder software because it makes things really easy for our clients to go in and edit their websites. We can provide video tutorials that show you how to add/edit content, create blog posts, add new photos, galleries, and before and after sliders too.
Yes! Once the site has been paid for in full you will have access to add photos. We use a very popular photo gallery software for WordPress that makes it super easy to add your own photos and organize them into specific galleries. We even provide you with some video tutorials showing you exactly how to add your photos.
Once you've paid for the website you own it free and clear. Your first year of hosting is included with the price. The annual renewal is $497 per year and that includes your hosting, technical support, wordpress and plugin updates, daily site backups, and access to our review gathering app. If you want to continue with our site management and content creation services it can be continued at $500/month.
