Riverina Tradies… Our Story
Based in Wagga Wagga, my name is Libby and I’m a Website Designer (Rivmedia), self-confessed super nerd and owner of Riverina Tradies.
So what do I know about Tradie businesses you may ask? Well I’m obviously not a Tradie myself, but I’m married to one and have seen first hand that Tradies are some of the most hard working people I know who invest a lot of time and money to build their businesses.
They play a vital role in the community and that combined with my personal connection with Tradies equals plenty of reasons why this industry is one I want to support.
How Did Riverina Tradies Start?
As mentioned my husband is a Tradie and one night we were discussing how much we were spending on advertising. At the time he had a Yellow Pages Ad that was costing just under $4000 a year.
This was not only extremely expensive for us, but knowing ourselves how often we didn’t use “the book”, we just couldn’t see the value in spending that much money anymore, especially when advertising online was substantially more affordable and proving to be much more effective.
There wasn’t any online directories we were happy to advertise with though either, because they were:
Too complicated: For example having to log on to the site and pay each time you wanted to quote a job.
Unlimited: Their directories were Australia wide which could make narrowing down to the local tradies time consuming.
Not regionally focussed: They’re marketing seemed to mainly focus on metro areas and forget about the regional towns.
Too general – Some directories covered all business types which means their marketing too had to be generalised and wasn’t specifically about tradies.
