BAL is encouraging tilers and contractors to create their own free web profile and get real job leads as part of the manufacturer’s online “Find a Tiler” facility for homeowners.
Available by signing-up to BAL’s YOU+BAL partnership programme at www.bal-adhesives.com/y-plus-bal-reg, tilers and contractors can create a company profile, post project pictures, upload videos, add social media and contacts and advertise their skills, experience and qualifications to potential clients.
Homeowners looking for a tiler can select up to three local fixers on the search facility and ask them to quote directly for the job using the online form. The homeowner can then select the best quote, with each fixer notified whether they’ve won or lost the job.
BAL Partners can also collect reviews, with customers leaving their feedback online and rating the tiler using a five star system. These are then published on each tiler’s web profile (subject to approval by BAL).
To encourage homeowners to review their tiler, BAL is also giving them the chance to win back the cost of their tiling work (paid for by BAL) every month by simply submitting their review through the web or the Homeowner Tiler Review form available to all BAL Partners. The winner is simply picked at random from all the reviews submitted that month.
BAL is also re-introducing their popular “Tiler of the Month” competition. Each month BAL will select a winner from the company’s list of BAL Partners based on job reviews received from homeowners, experience and skills added, profiles updated and project galleries.
The chosen tiler will receive publicity in their local press and on the BAL Homeowners page.
Alex Underwood, Head of Marketing at BAL said: “At BAL we’re always looking at ways to help our customers get more work – whether it’s through innovative products or market-leading project support – which is why we’ve re-launched our Find a Tiler facility, previously found on Tilerworld.com.
“Now part of our YOU+BAL partnership programme, the free web profiles gives tilers and contractors the chance to showcase their work to potential homeowners looking for tilers in their local area and crucially get tangible job leads.”
Launched in February, YOU+BAL is BAL’s way of welcoming all fixers and contractors to partner with BAL.
