People Are Talking
I was cautious at first because I got a call out of the blue and we dealt with everything over the phone so you can't always get a vibe for someone. They could have ran away with my £250 but then I had a few talks with Natasha, looked them up with the NFRC and saw the case study and was impressed by it all.
I rely on Get Work and get all my big jobs from it. I get smaller jobs from my word of mouth customers and this gets me the bigger ones. Itís definitely worth the money.
The first month was a bit iffy but since then itís gone from strength to strength. I've talked a lot more with them and I can't fault it. It's handy to see all of my leads and customers on my phone and it's dead easy to use.
Good variety of jobs from it, had some small ones turn into bigger jobs once I've been to see them. Had some re-roofs, garage roofs, flat roofs, repairs from £50 a job to a day rate, there's plenty of work, I've done loads of the jobs already including re-roofs and I've got plenty booked in still to do.
Best thing is that they do what they say they will and you do get work from it. I know 100% that they will help me grow my company. I've tried other things like Yell before and I didn't get any calls from it. The best thing about this is that there is no contract, I've had 40 jobs in 3 months, I can see every single job that I've had from it and its good quality work. I'm definitely keeping it going, I would be silly not to and I plan to go up to the next package in the future. There might be other companies out there that look like they do similar things but this one is in a different league.
“Couldn't be happier, if you need work these guys can get it for you!”
I'm so happy that we met Nick and signed up to Get Work when we did. We were their first customer and the service throughout has been nothing short of exceptional. We started using them in February last year. We'd just formed our company, had no customers and weren't doing any other marketing. Yell had approached us and tried to offer us a package, but we felt that advertising on Google with it being more popular was the better option. Everybody goes on Google first and just types whatever they're looking for, rather than going onto Yell and looking that way.
The quality of the work that we receive is really great. It’s strange because a lot of the work that comes in gets quoted and then 3 months down the line they want it doing. People tend to save up for the bigger jobs, so I'm a great believer in keeping on top of every lead so we don't miss out on any work. If it’s a smaller job, it gets dealt with straight away, but the larger work definitely takes a while to come through. We had one quoted in January last year that only came through in August! And funnily enough their neighbour called up to have the same work done as it was an adjoining house. So we got both of them jobs through just one call, which is why it's so important to keep on top of things. The repairs are always quite rapid though, following the call we’re out the following day getting on with things.
We’ve taken on 3 new roofers, 2 labourers and bought a new van, Bri’s got work every single day, he’s booked up now for another 2 months, we were literally getting too many calls to handle, and really could have done with a bigger team earlier to help with the workload. Bri’s now trying to get more workers on as we just don’t have the staff to cover the jobs. We're now on their Growth package and get around 2 leads a day. We get loads of calls, loads of email enquiries, it works so well, we literally get all our work from them. They’ve delivered exactly what they said they would for over a year now. I can't recommend them enough.
“Great people to work with, Nothing is too much trouble for them.”
’ve tried advertising with so many marketing companies over the years and I've always been disappointed. I never seem to get anything back in return, and quite often I've been promised the world. Get Work have certainly been different and from the moment I spoke to Leon, I felt at ease. Everything was explained clearly and I just felt comfortable right from the off.
The thing that swayed it for me was that I had my own area where they would only advertise my roofing company. It means my company stands out and I’m not just one of a handful of other roofers thrown into the same directory like with Yell or quoting for the same job like with Rated People. It showed me that they wanted MY business to do well and they weren’t like other companies that just wanted to make money by selling the same jobs to 10 other roofers.
I’ve used an SEO company before, which didn’t bring anything in at all. I’ve used Trust-a-trader who took £2k off me and I got 1 job out of it. I’ve tried Rated People and they were the worst. You’ve got loads of roofers paying £10-£15 a throw, they say they only send 3 to a job but I’ve been to one job and I was the 18th roofer! They’re making more than the job is worth.
At the end of the first month I'll be honest, I didn’t think I was going to carry on because it started very slow. After speaking with Leon and Nick they were confident it would get better and they offered to run another trial to get it working for me. I was impressed enough with what I’d seen to stick around for another month and I’m so glad that I did. In the second month the work started to really come through, and in the third month I got even more. The fourth month has started and I’ve got 5 leads in the first 5 days.
There’s no other service that compares to Get Work, they show a genuine interest in the success of your company and they get results. The leads I’ve received have been great so far. I’ve had industrial units, re-roofs, flat roofs, conservatory conversions, porches and smaller repairs, which are really important for our cash flow. I’d definitely say give them a go if you have the chance, as long as you aren’t anywhere near me or my area!
