pickapro.ie start date

February, 2011.

Why did you join pickapro?

Prior to the downturn in the housing market, we had never had to advertise before because during the Celtic Tiger era we were always flat out. When the recession hit we knew we had to advertise and we realised that the internet was the way to go because nobody picks up the Golden Pages anymore. Our first problem was that we had no presence on the internet. We were referred to pickapro by another builder who was already on the site and who was doing well from it so we decided to give pickapro a try.

I hadn’t previously done any real advertising. I had done a few brochure type postcards but they were useless and didn’t bring in the right kind of clients. I wanted to start advertising on the internet because you can put on a full display of what you do.

Do you think pickapro is good value for money?

I think it’s excellent value for money and there’s a couple of reasons why. First of all we get plenty of inquiries from the site and secondly the service we get is excellent. When we ring pickapro about something there is always someone at the end of a phone and nothing is ever too much trouble.

What percentage of your business would you say comes from Pickapro?

I would say about 60% of our business in the last 18 months has come from pickapro. A great job we just got a week ago was from Toyota Ireland.

What are the main benefits pickapro.ie brings to your business

First of all we know have a presence on the internet that people can find. When homeowners type Builders Dublin in Google, pickapro is on page one near the top. Secondly the standard of pickapro is very good, the portfolio they put together for us is well written and very professional. That was a big help to us because we’re builders, not computer people. When we first joined pickapro a year and a half ago, we were in the process of building our own website which is still not done. pickapro had us up in less than two weeks.

What type of business does pickapro generate?

About 90% of the work that we get from pickapro is domestic work, extensions, renovations and conversions. 10% would be commercial. Like I said, next week we start a job for Toyota Ireland and they found us through pickapro.
