Pretty cool, huh?
This may have been impacted by Scott Morrison announcing that every single working individual has an essential job, or it may just be that demand hasn’t completely gone out the window.
It’s hard to say or determine, but the important thing is that there is still demand and search volumes are seeing an uptick across the board.
And that's awesome! There is light.
What Should You Do About COVID-19 If You're A Tradie?
Well we obviously know that these are unprecedented times, but what we have seen many times in previous economic recessions are that those who make the smart moves (now), will rebound back much harder at the other end of this.
In other words, play your cards right now for the next few months and get ahead of your competition in a massive way.
Looking at the data, we recommend focusing your attention to SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) whilst there is still the window of opportunity for you.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is how we get tradies to show up at the top of Google listing for things like “Plumber in Sydney” or “Electrician Northern Beaches”.
Let's look at the facts.
· State Government Lockdowns are in place for the next 90 days (end of June 2020)
· Federal Government advice is 6 months for life to return to normal (Sept/Oct 2020)
... And Good SEO takes around 6 months to get to a solid top 3 position.
With SEO, you’re going to start seeing results within the first month, but more importantly – you’re going to be primed when your industry is on the up again.
Which it definitely will be, and you too know that it will be.
Now is definitely the time to invest in your business and make the smart long-term moves to put you in a stronger position than you’ve ever had.
Wrapping up, we have seen the data and we know that there is now an uptick in activity, and an uptick of search trends.
And that’s a good thing!
We also know that this COVID-19 situation is here to stay with us for the next 3-6 months.
And we can use it in our favour if you focus on long term results for your business.
Getting SEO right now, means the difference of killing it in September/October or missing the boat on the rebound.
