Create your own craftsman website - Here's how!

As a craftsman, you work with your hands. As a rule, you have very little to do with technology. The last few months have shown more than ever that craftsmanship has a golden bottom. You often have trouble keeping up with all the work. And then you suddenly hear that you need your own crafts website. But doesn't the creation of such a website take an incredible amount of work?

In your mind's eye you suddenly see technical manuals and how you sit in front of them and learn programming for the creation of your site. Do you really need your own homepage as a craftsman? Or is such a craftsman website just another construction site, but this time in the technical area? Then you might have heard about SEO and that a simple website is not enough. You also have to do search engine optimization, otherwise you will be lost among the many craftsmen websites. Then you can save it directly.

Besides you ask yourself:

  • Does a craftsman website make a lot of work or does it save you work?

  • Which contents belong on your homepage for craftsmen?

  • Are there any legal requirements that you have to comply with on your craftsmen's homepage?

  • What are the costs for a website for craftsmen?

  • What technical requirements do you need for your craftsman homepage?

Does your craft business need a website - what content belongs on it?

Most craft businesses currently have full order books. In this respect, the question arises as to the purpose of such websites. You may not necessarily need new customers. But such a website can also bring other benefits, especially in the trade.

Your customers often only know the standard services. They call you when something is broken, when they have a craft emergency that they can't fix themselves, or when they want to make a plannable extension, design an extension or have something modernized. Then they need more than just a helping hand, and it's not uncommon for that helping hand to be you.

Your customers may not even know that you offer very modern solutions in addition to the usual standard they still know from their parents and grandparents. You can inform them about this on your homepage. Show them the latest materials and modern design options. No one wants to read about the machines you use on the Internet or search for them on pages for construction machinery. But if your company has a unique selling point in the area, if you have completed special training and have kept up to date with all the rules of the trade, then such information belongs on your homepage.

Are you proud of individual projects, do you offer a fixed price or a complete package for individual services? Craftsmen like your company should also present this on their website.

You have already collected some recommendations? Then of course they belong on your own website.

How often do you need to work on your website?

Don't worry - it's not as often as you might think at first. Once set up, your website usually needs your attention only once a month. Then you can announce new actions, publish new content or simply show individual aspects of the work in your company.

For this you can install a blog or set up a news section. With a content management system you can easily keep these content types apart and follow the logic that is common on the Internet.

What about the legal aspects of your website?

You should make it easy for your customers to contact you. For this purpose, there is the imprint, which is also mandatory. To comply with the rules of the DSGVO (Data Protection Regulation), a privacy policy is mandatory. But we'll come back to that later.
