Retailers welcome TilerWorld
Bathroom and kitchen retailers nationwide are welcoming the growing success of www.tilerworld.com, the new free service bringing consumers and tilers together. By entering their location, consumers can call up a list of up to 20 trusted tilers in their area. They can then pick up to five and request quotes for tiling.
The www.tilerworld.com service offers a major benefit over any other resource, offering far more than a simple list of names and telephone numbers. Each tiler has their own area and can upload a profile, including pictures of their work and testimonials. Most importantly, and unique to TilerWorld, it includes ratings submitted by previous customers. Consumers are encouraged to give ratings through a free competition. Anyone rating their tiler is entered into a free monthly draw and could win back the cost of their tiling project, to a maximum of £1,000.
The benefit to retailers is summed up by the retailer who said, “Every day, customers ask me to recommend good tradespeople of all sorts, including tilers. Nobody wants to recommend somebody who might not do a perfect job, so this service removes that risk for me. It is also easy to remember. All of our counter staff know that the answer to a tiling question is TilerWorld. In addition, the consumer is much more likely to choose a good tiler, because of the rating system, and they will remember us as the source of reliable information.”
Tilers also benefit, because the service delivers more than a new source of new business leads. They gain access to free professional advice and information, including useful hints and tips, and an increasingly popular forum. There is also a ‘Tiler of the Month’ award, open to all registered tilers, offering the winner valuable free publicity.
TilerWorld was launched at the beginning of the year. Several thousand tilers throughout the UK have registered and many have already uploaded profiles, with more doing so every day. Consumers have found www.tilerworld.com even before the formal launch and hundreds have requested quotes from tilers and then submitted ratings.
