If you did your Builder’s Registration Application with me at atc2 you may recall my insistence on having a market identity. It’s important for any business to know where they’re at. (if it knows where it wants to be) A map serves no purpose unless you know where you are.

A customer wants to know the Who, What, Where, When and How Much? They already know the why. No one chooses a heart surgeon from the yellow pages and takes the lowest quote!

Not even the ladies would choose a hair dresser (sorry stylist) like this.

Around now you should have received your verification post card from Google so we can verify the site. We need this to load the Google API key into WordPress.

You will have provided all the pictures you wish to use. They can be taken on an old nokia phone as when they’re scaled they are low res anyway. I recommend avoiding the use of stock images that you see time and time again. Models prancing about in Hi Viz PPE. (see below)

You’ve also got an idea (bullet points are fine) of the “Who, What, Where, When and How Much” message you wish to convey to your Web Site visitors. E,g. 2nd Home buyers looking for a small low maintenance home in the inner suburbs for around $300K.
