Build Local would like to thank everyone for their support0
What a busy 10 weeks it has been since we launched Build Local to the general public!
It’s exciting to announce that Fifty (50) local businesses have now joined Build Local and we are looking forward to extending our reach to local home owners and growing our business listings to further assist them.
I’m thankful that I was invited to help turn my business partner Alicia’s Build Local dream into a reality and we are both excited to inform you that Build Local is the only directory of it’s kind servicing our local region. We can also confirm that we are based in the Hunter Valley and are 100% independently owned and operated.
A HUGE thank you to everyone who played a part in helping us get Build Local up and running. We couldn’t have done it without your expertise and advice along the way. To those business owners who have put their trust in us and share our vision, we thank you and look forward to working alongside you well into the future.
We are very grateful to the home owners who have already visited our www.buildlocal.com.au website to find a local business to help them plan, build, renovate or maintain their home. Don’t forget to LIKE us on Facebook and keep an eye out for our welcome posts as new businesses join. If you are interested in accessing extra tips or special advertiser offers don’t forget to join our ‘FREE’ MEMBERS TOOLBOX on our website homepage which will automatically add you as a subscriber to our bi-monthly e-newsletter.
Over the past few months I’ve often been asked what our main point of difference is from other online directories, the answer is below:
- We provide home owners with a one-stop-shop to gain access to everyone and everything they need to help them buy, plan, build, maintain or complete their home in our local region on an easy to navigate site.
- We understand the importance of using qualified contractors and tradesmen to avoid the risk of re-work costs and poor workmanship. Prior to accepting new businesses on our directory we conduct online checks with Fair Trading and ABN Lookup to determine if the business holds a current ABN number, has a clean Fair Trading history and holds a current relevant licence for the services they promote on our site.
- Our Free Members Toolbox membership gives home owners access to exclusive offers and interesting information from our advertising members.
- Home Owners can share stories and photos of renovation work with everyone in our ‘Show Your Project’ section of our website.
During the past two (2) months we have been fortunate to talk to so many wonderful local business owners in our region who are just as passionate about providing local home owners with quality reliable service as we are. If you know of a local business who provides great service to home owners in our region, please let them know about Build Local as we would love to hear from them.
Thanks again to everyone for their support!
